'Riverdale' Season 5 Finale Trailer Hints At 'Barchie' Kiss – and Fans Are Loving It

If the latest Riverdale trailer is to be believed, "Barchie" fans are in for a treat with the next episode.

The latest installment of the hit CW show saw Archie Andrews (played by KJ Apa) and Veronica Lodge (Camila Mendes) decide to go on a break after their plans to move in together fell apart. And, of course, because this is Riverdale, Archie looks set to celebrate that break by locking lips with Betty Cooper (Lili Reinhart) yet again.

A Betty and Archie (or as the shippers call them, "Barchie") kiss featured in the latest trailer for the Riverdale Season 5 finale, coming to The CW on October 6 and Netflix on October 7.

In fact, it seems like both sides of "Varchie" (Veronica and Archie) will be moving on pretty quickly from each other, as in the promo we also see Veronica hooking up with Reggie Mantle (Charles Melton). The actors also dated IRL.

The season finale looks like it will put the residents of Riverdale into some stressful times – and the only way that anyone on Riverdale knows how to deal with stress is by steamy make-out sessions. In the trailer, we see Pop's diner engulfed in flames, with Cheryl Blossom (Madelaine Petsch) stuck right in the middle of the burning building after talking about her family curse. So another typical episode of Riverdale, then.

Out of all the exciting moments in the Riverdale trailer, however, it was the Betty/Archie kiss that had fans most excited. The aptly named "Barchie Updates" Twitter account led the excitement with a still from the trailer, which they captioned: "BARCHIE IS BACK!!!"

Other Riverdale fans were already planning the couple's future based on this one-second clip of a kiss. One wrote: "GONNA STAY IN RIVERDALE & RAISE CHILDREN TOGETHER !!! ENDGAME TINGS"

Other Barchie shippers were making predictions about how this scene came to be, with one tweeting, "When Betty finally catches TBK in 5x19 so the FBI reinstate her and say she can graduate & that's what the celebration scene in the finale. So the gang throw her a graduation party and this takes place after it. I see the vision!"

Like anything on Twitter, the tweets quickly got meta, with people going from talking about the trailer, to commenting on the fact that everyone was talking about the trailer. The Barchie Updates Twitter account later wrote: "BARCHIE IS TRENDING and all they got was 0.0001 sec in promo???"

The synopsis for the latest episode is giving nothing away about the future of Barchie – though it does hint that Archie's old relationship might be done for good this time. The logline reads: "OUT WITH THE OLD - As the gang pick up the pieces after a rough year back in Riverdale, an incident at Pop's forces them to make a difficult decision about the future of the town."
