Veronica is going in the deep end this week Riverdale… And her new husband Chad is there to make sure she doesn’t meet the ground.
TVLine has an exclusive preview of Wednesday’s episode (The CW, 8 / 7c), with Veronica taking the stage at her former speakeasy – now Toni’s reborn Whyte Wyrm bar – to perform Lady Gaga’s “Shallow” from A star is born. But of course this song is a duet, and Chad grabs a mic to sing the Bradley Cooper parts. (And it doesn’t sound bad for a Wall Street banker, does it?)
But in A star is born, Ally and Jackson haven’t really lived happily ever after, and Veronica and Chad have been on shaky marital ground lately. Maybe this duo is the tonic that will heal their relationship issues. In the audience, we see Kevin wipe away his tears and Archie and Betty share an intimate look as they applaud the performance. (Sorry, Ronnie, but Jughead doesn’t look too impressed.)
Elsewhere in Wednesday’s episode, titled “Back to School,” “Archie, Betty, Veronica and Jughead Prepare for Their First Day as New Teachers at Riverdale High,” “Archie and Toni turn to Cheryl for help her restart the football teams and cheer “and” Betty, Kevin and Alice are following their lead after learning Polly could be in trouble, “according to the network’s official description.
