TheSeason 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 dying, and he 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.
So Archie & Veronica just had a shower in Fred’s blood…

For the record, Camila Mendes and KJ Apa toldthe shower scene was a lot of fun to shoot. listed a bunch of questions about the scene, ending with this one:
“Can we have at least one scene as absurd as this one in every episode?”
Yes, please. “Riverdale” Season 2 continues Wednesday, Oct. 18 with Episode 2, “Chapter Fifteen: Nighthawks,” on The CW.
