Lili Reinhart & KJ Apa Tease Betty & Archie's Unique Bond on 'Riverdale'

Remember last week when Betty got that note from Black Hood on Riverdale? Well, it’s about to happen again on tonight’s episode.

Lili Reinhart teases that Betty will get another call from the mysterious serial killer on the loose and the person she turns to won’t be Kevin Keller of Jughead Jones — it will be Archie Andrews.

“Betty ends up confiding in Archie,” Lili shared with TVLine. “[It will give viewers a chance to see] how she confides in him and how they help one another.”

KJ Apa added that the two friends share a unique bond: “I think Archie’s number-one person to go to for help, or advice, or just someone to talk to, has always been Betty, for as long as he can remember… They’re best friends, and when s—t hits the fan, Betty goes to Archie, and Archie goes to Betty.”

Speaking of Black Hood though, Lili compares it to “the Phantom of the Opera and Christine, in a way.”

“He wants to kind of puppeteer her in order to get the town to where he wants it to be, in a very sick and manipulative way,” she says. “He is this horrible figure who wants to expel Riverdale of its sins, and he is using Betty to try and do that.”
