The "Riverdale" Season 2 premiere had some life-or-death stakes to it, but fans REALLY want to talk about that shower scene.
Archie's (KJ Apa) father was apparently dying, and Archie was covered in his blood, so he went home and finally took a shower -- with his cast still on. Veronica (Camila Mendes) decided that was a good time to get naked (except for her pearls, natch) and hop in the shower with him for some sexy time.
It was a steamy scene, for sure, but the timing of it -- and the practicalities of that cast and her pearls, and the fact that they're supposed to be sophomores in high school -- left fans more baffled than turned-on.

Archie and Betty have more chemistry just looking at each other than him and Veronica have during shower sex. Facts only! #Riverdale
