Comments: "Love Showdown" Betty and Veronica are both curious about a letter Archie had. They do go to lengths to find out about it. This leads to Betty and Veronica facing off in a love showdown with Archie as the prize.
Betty gets tricked by Veronica yet again. Only this time she decides to strike back. Betty out for revenge is not someone you would want to get in the way of.
Betty actually shows Ron up at her own party. You will not feel sorry for her at all. Betty though you will be ready to cheer for.
Veronica though strikes back. It is a showdown for these two. Make that three as Cheryl is back.
"Love & War" The girls of Riverdale get ready to how best to deal with Cheryl. She is a threat to them all. Mainly though we see its Betty and Veronica that need to fear.
"Fast and Loose" Cheryl is a flirt big time. Now she has her sights set on Archie. Archie being Archie falls for Cheryl. Archie is always girl crazy.
"It's Friendship" Cheryl does not make a good friend. She is way to stuck up.
Veronica and Betty have a plan. They are working together and together they are hard to beat.
Now things do go back to some normalcy as Cheryl walks off with Reggie. In some ways a good pairing and others not so much.
Archie after all his girl troubles is still the same. He will never change.
"She's Ba-a-ack!" Cheryl is back and Betty and Veronica are upset. Cheryl is drawn so cute.
"Lights, Camera, Action!" Cheryl's plan backfires on everyone. It is nice to have her back though. She has a way of making Betty and Veronica work together to protect their common ground in Archie.
"The Trophy" The battle is on its Betty and Veronica vs Cheryl with Archie as the prize. Archie is as clumsy as ever and we love to watch him being so. He is also adorable as he wins girls hearts.
"Battle of the BFFs!" In a battle to see who are the best BBF's you just know who will win. Seeing Cheryl put her two cents in though adds to the tension. In some ways you feel sorry for Cheryl just a little.
Betty and Veronica have started a trend all the girls want a BBF now. Even Cheryl wants a BBF.
The competition is on again as a new team of BFFs must be chosen. Well the contest ends and we see that so many girls won cause they all made new friends. Even Cheryl we see has feelings and wants real friends.
Cherly, Betty and Veronica may be rivals but here they all won. Girl Power Rulz!
