Lili Reinhart On Riverdale’s Cooper Family Drama

***Spoiler warning*** Read at your own risk if you have yet to see Riverdale episode 1.06.

Much of tonight’s episode of Riverdale focused on drama with the members of the Pussycats – as well as its newest member, Veronica Lodge (Camila Mendes). But the episode also provided some developments on Betty Cooper (Lili Reinhart) and her tumultuous relationship with her family.

Not only was Betty’s mysterious sister, Polly (Tiera Skovbye), finally shown for the first time in the series, but Polly was able to provide her side of the story regarding her relationship with Jason Blossom. According to Polly, she was sent to a group home by her parents the day of Jason’s disappearance, and it was mainly because she was pregnant with Jason’s baby.

While Betty’s parents assured that Polly was lying, there is much about Hal and Alice that remains suspicious. Although the pair told Betty they weren’t suspects in Jason’s murder, Betty appears to be taking their words with a grain of salt. And according to Reinhart, that distrust will run into the show’s future episodes.

Lili Reinhart Shoots Down ‘Riverdale’ Fan Theory

*** warning *** If you have not seen Riverdale Chapter Three yet, read at your own risk. Spoilers ahead.

After last night’s episode of The CW’s Archie Comics adaptation Riverdale, in which Betty Cooper snapped and took revenge on Chuck Clayton after learning that Clayton’s football teammates — including the recently-deceased Jason Blossom — had taken advantage of her sister Polly, Twitter lit up with a question: Does Polly Cooper really exist?

The idea is that, following Betty’s mental break — in which she wore a wig and called herself Polly, among other things — there seemed to be a possibility that her not-yet-seen sister could in fact be a manifestation of Betty’s psychosis, and not an actual, physical character who exists.

Lili Reinhart Weighs in on Betty’s Dark Side

Riverdale showed off a Betty that no one ever expected in Thursday night’s episode, “Body Double.”

After seeing the way her mother Alice was corrupting the Riverdale local paper, Betty decided to reinvigorate the high school’s paper and become a reporter of her own merits. Her first story? Taking down a slut-shaming circle of jocks who were degrading Riverdale High’s female population to win their own perverse game. It’s a matter of principle to Betty when she discovers that Veronica is the latest victim, but it becomes a much darker matter when she finds out that her older sister Polly was also subject to the same cruelty.

Betty goes beyond writing a story to get revenge for the two closest women in her life. There’s a black wig, a dangerously warm hot tub, maple syrup and a whole new side of Betty before her revenge was finished. Adding that dark edge to the iconic girl-next-door was a purposeful inversion of the character for showrunner and executive producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.

Lili Reinhart Opens Up About Betty Cooper & Female Friendship

Betty Cooper, who was primarily defined in the Archie comics by her crush on Archie Andrews, is often seen as a the “girl next door.” Everything from her blonde ponytail down to her love of automotive repair made Betty a prototype for wholesome Americana as it was defined when the comics debuted in the 1940s.

But the ‘40s have long since passed, and as we all know, looks can sometimes be deceiving. Often, the “girl next door” has a lot of secrets of her own, and while it’s easy to hide behind a smile, her outward appearance doesn’t tell the whole story.

When Riverdale premieres tonight on the CW, it will give Betty that reboot that she deserves, showing audiences that there’s a multi-layered and complex girl underneath that bouncy hair and jean jacket.

For Lili Reinhart, who plays Betty, that three-dimensional transformation of these characters was extremely important. In the comics, Betty is tangled within a love triangle consisting of herself, Archie, and Veronica that, despite Betty’s friendship with Veronica, serves as a huge plot for a lot of the comics. Pitting women against each other? We’re so not here for that.
