***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.
