‘Riverdale’ season 5 is back: The best Twitter reactions to the premiere
After a disastrous landfill fire that was 2020, it feels good to return to the more manageable dumpster fire that is Riverdale. The season 5 premiere for everyone’s favorite trashy, trashy series returned on Wednesday to bring us the Drama, the Secrets, and the Auteur (aka the weird dude leaving those snuff films around the town). Twitter, naturally, has some thoughts about the whole situation.
So get yourself a spiked milkshake from Pop’s Chock’lit Shoppe and settle in, we’re looking at the best reactions of Riverdale’s season 5 premiere from Twitter. From the hilarity to the WTF to the moments that did make our cold dead hearts break a little bit, these Twitter reactions cover the bold scope of the Riverdale premiere. Just, be warned, it will get full of spoilers if you haven’t watched yet.

Welcome back to the jungle, everyone. The inmates run the asylum and we have no idea what’s happening next. Though, this is definitely an eternal mood of Riverdale. By season 5, those of us that remain just cannot look away.
Jughead really had to wear that beanie with the suit…. #Riverdale pic.twitter.com/cdmaIh1btY

Spiraling over Jughead’s beanie
Let’s be real, for a moment, have we ever seen Jughead without that beanie? Does it just grow out of his head? We probably have seen him without when he bathes and stuff, right? That thing probably needs thorough washing. It can’t be good for his hair. Let it breathe.

Self burn! That’s rare.
Huh. Even Archie Comics roasts Riverdale. We think it’s becoming self-aware, everyone.

Nana Rose life check
Nana Rose is a witch and somehow linked up to the CAOS coven and you can’t convince otherwise. Keep kicking, Nana Rose.
my heart is 💔 #riverdale pic.twitter.com/SkowLcMsqa

RIP to Choni
Toni (Vanessa Morgan) and Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch) break-up in the episode because Toni’s grandparents don’t want her dating a Blossom. We’re more surprised about the family because it looked like Toni was living with Cheryl, but the two had one magical night at prom before breaking up. Ugh, our hearts.
toni: my uncle is abusive
toni: jughead kicked me out of the serpents
toni: i joined an organ steeling cult
toni: i’m dating cheryl who hates her family as much as you do

This??? This is where the line is drawn???
But seriously though this is where Toni’s grandma draws the line? Not with the organ stealing cult? Here. Go off.

Stop saying endgame
Please stop saying certain characters are “endgame”. Especially when we know they got a girlfriend for Jughead (Cole Sprouse) and a husband for Veronica (Camila Mendes) waiting in the wings. We know it’s not the endgame right now.

Archie needs a brain 2k21
Maybe let’s not sing rando songs that you found laying around, Veronica. Also, Archie (KJ Apa) at least try to hide the evidence of your latest screw up. Please let him get some common sense in the time jump.

Us to the TV: Stop singing, V!
Seriously, the second embarrassment was too much for some of us. Yikes. Y-I-K-E-S.
The most unrealistic thing about Riverdale is that Archie’s serpent tattoo drawn with A PENCIL has lasted TWO seasons 😭😭😭 pic.twitter.com/mYpPiyZXwJ

Now that’s in our head
Has Archie just not showered? Did he make it permanent? Why is that still there? Yes, there are poke and stick tattoos, but…that’s not how you do that.
Varchie broke up. Veronica doesn’t want any drama. Just for them to go their separate ways.
This break up was so drama free lmfaoo. HELP. pic.twitter.com/u8DFtlbIaD

It really was drama free.
Cheers to literally the most drama free break-up in all of Riverdale’s history. We…we weren’t expecting it to come from Riverdale of all places.

This will not end well
No one’s telling Jughead? Someone let him know. C’mon people.
