After about a million years of high school, Archie and Veronica are apparently finally getting married.
If you like comic books, though, or even if you merely have a vague peripheral awareness of them like I do, you are probably very suspicious at this point. Weddings are kind of an iffy proposition in comics. If they happen, sometimes it turns out you’re looking at a bizarre parallel universe, or it’s all a dream, or Bobby walks out of the shower and it turns out the whole season was Pam’s wacky fun dream. Oh wait, that was Dallas.
So I have my suspicions. Since I don’t have any real stake in Archie, and don’t care all that much, I’m just waiting to hear how it turns out with vague interest. Maybe Betty will show up at the wedding and speak, rather than forever holding her peace.
Betty was always the cute girl next door, and Veronica was always the rich chick everyone wanted to be. Unlike Buffy the Vampire’s rich chick, Cordelia, though, I never got the impression that Veronica was actually a very deep person who merely kept her smarts hidden to remain popular.
We’ll see how it goes.
Who should Archie ultimately end up with? Betty or Veronica? Or are they doomed to a tragic triangle for eternity?
