Clearly “Riverdale” is open to playing around with different genres — as evidenced by Cheryl’s (Madelaine Petsch) dreams of a zombie Jason (Trevor Stines) — but our hats are off to the show for taking it further this week (Mar. 9) than we could have imagined.
In a dream of his own, Jughead (Cole Sprouse) imagines a world very similar to the classic “Archie” comics many grew up reading. From the paper crown, to Archie’s bow tie — everything in the sequence had such a wonderfully strange vibe, down to Veronica (Camila Mendes), Betty (Lili Reinhart) and her mom (Madchen Amick) going positively “Stepford Wives.”
For Sprouse, that particular scene was something truly special.
“I love that sequence,” he admits in a group interview. “I love those costumes. That’s my favorite episode actually, because of that sequence.”
