Riverdale season 5: Jughead and Tabitha romance ‘sealed’ as fans predict ‘slow burn’

After envisioning a trippy reunion with his ex-girlfriend, Betty Cooper (Lili Reinhart), Jughead disappears in the episode’s closing moments, leaving behind an ominous trail of blood.

While his sinister fate prompted flashbacks to Jughead’s staged murder in season four, many fans were still ruminating on his tender interaction with his new friend, Tabitha Tate.

Staying behind to help clear up Pop’s Diner, Jughead and Tabitha share a dance together and come achingly close to kissing.

Their romantic tension this week ruffled a fair number of feathers in the Riverdale community, as many fans are still convinced Jughead will end the series back together with Betty.
