Riverdale’s Camila Mendes on that Shocking Kiss and Veronica’s Uncertain Future

Camila Mendes knows some Riverdale fans will be furious after tonight’s episode.

The show returns tonight after a month-long hiatus with its “core four”—couples Betty (Lili Reinhart) and Jughead (Cole Sprouse), and Archie (KJ Apa) and Veronica (Mendes)—packing for a “romantic getaway” at the Lodge family lake house, per a recommendation from Veronica’s scheming father, Hiram (Mark Consuelos). The night ends in murder—as it so often does in Riverdale—but that’s not even the most controversial part of the episode.

“I read that, and I was like, ‘Oh, God, I’m not even gonna look at my Twitter that day. I’m just going to turn it off,’” Mendes says with a laugh, after I ask her about the steamy Veronica-Bughead hot tub kiss midway through the episode. Riverdale fans take their favorite couples very seriously, and the #Bughead and #Varchie fandoms nearly exploded when show-runner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa teased the moment with a photo last week.

But the two sacred couples remain intact at the end of the episode, since the shocking moment was merely payback for a rebound kiss between Betty and Archie earlier in the season, after each couple had broken up. “The show does a good job of riling up the fans,” admits the 23-year-old. “That is kind of the charm of our show.” And that’s not necessarily a bad thing, she points out: “It just shows how passionate the fans are, and how firmly they believe in their ship.”

But even though each ship has safely navigated dangerous waters for the time being, Veronica’s future is far murkier. We’ve watched her struggle with her father’s growing corrupt influence in Riverdale, and as of tonight’s episode, he now owns half of it. “She’s trying to stay one foot in the world of good and one foot in the world of evil so that she can find a middle ground and try to constantly find compromise,” Mendes says of Veronica’s internal conflict. “But the more she plays with that, the deeper she gets into it, and she gets more sucked into the family business. And now she’s kind of stuck—there’s no getting out of it.”

Even Veronica doesn’t know the full extent of her boyfriend’s work with Hiram—like Archie witnessing Hiram’s henchman killing a home intruder in the final moments of tonight’s episode. But Mendes promises we’ll see Veronica and Archie grapple with these secrets in coming episodes: “They will be digging even deeper into that storyline.”
