I have recently caught up to the latest episode of Riverdale and wow, Archie and Valerie have a fierce and electric chemistry.

The looks that Archie and Valerie give to each other across the room, the passionate vibe that they both feel about music and the seamless connection, they can’t deny between each other is not only just beyond attraction, it is also beyond the elements of cliched melodrama. There is never a forced resistance between the two pairing, amidst the weight of expectations from their families and friends. Together, they find themselves at a peaceful, relaxed, drama-free, trusting and vivacious relationship which at its very core is based on the foundations of mutual understanding and respect. They are both determined, intensely passionate but deep down, they care for one another in ways that allow them to flourish together. This pairing, I believe demonstrates that a relationship doesn't need to constantly promote conflict as a barrier towards reaching the goals of both individuals. Instead, it is equally important to realize that a relationship can be a safe haven for personal growth, love and happiness. In the last few episodes, I observed specific interactions where both Archie and Valerie supported each other. It is because of these moments that I am glad to be a Valarchie fan. I ship them harder than anything in the Riverdale universe.

Beyond attraction. So true.

Isn't that wonderful? No melodrama. Just two people forming a nice, believable connection. That's why the kiss was so natural.

I'm sure they'll have issues, and they should, but hopefully not cliched ones.

Well said.

I have to give a nod to the comic creator, Dan Parent, for coming up with this great pairing.

The reviews are in.

I updated the OP with a few new articles. Excerpts:

"Another romantic development that has long been hinted at is a much more joyous one: Archie and Valerie. Recent years, including the excellent Archie: A Rock and Roll Romance storyline, have paired the couple up to great effect, and as I've said in previous reviews I absolutely love that the show is taking this route instead of the already well-trodden Archie/Betty/Veronica love triangle. Their chemistry sparks in this episode, and I'm more than anxious to see where this goes next."

–DenOfGeek.com

"But of course, this is Riverdale, so we can’t end on the happy note of Archie performing his music for the first time (though he and Val FINALLY kiss after the show, so there is a little more happiness to go around)."

–TeenVogue.com

"In the comic books, Archie writer/artist [Dan Parent] asserted his own headcanon that Archie actually ends up with Valerie, with Betty and Veronica finally coming to terms with the new monogamous relationship (of course, Valerie actually has to slap some sense into Archie, literally, to make him realize that unlike Betty and Veronica, she will not be played with). Looks like we're getting into that canon, and I’m excited for it."

–ColorWebMag.com



"They love us, Arch."

My favourite scenes from the show between Archie and Valerie would be the music rehearsal segment in Chapter Six: Faster, Pussycats! Kill! Kill!. As they sang the song "I Got You", I noticed a passionate exchange in looks. At the end of their duet, you could see their happy faces radiating with pure joy and bliss. After that, there was no doubt in my mind about the pairing. Valarchie is my dream ship that is currently depicted on Riverdale. It is a balance of a warm friendship, a common interest in music as well as a romantic passion for each other that makes it a beautiful relationship.

So true. I liked their rehearsals as well. Thanks for posting these nice images. Hayley looks so radiant every time I see her. There's no doubt that these two already have something special.

And it was charming how Fred got all awkward after seeing her in Archie's room. It'll be nice if they get more reactions this season.

He could tell, even if Archie couldn't.

Veronica needs someone suited to her,but I don't know who that is.

Thanks for bringing over the reviews.

I'd be okay with Archie/Val being the end game for Archie.

My Valarchie heart cannot contain this much happiness, I feel like I am about to soar to heaven after witnessing such a stunning couple. I am hoping Archie and Valerie are end game. There is something in the air when I see them interact, it is like a mix of euphoria, electricity and magic (sorry for the Sabrina reference). My goodness, I feel like screaming on top of my lungs. That intense chemistry, oh lord. Sorry for being melodramatic but watching this ship is like observing a life-affirming romance in a movie that you loved which deeply touched your soul.

Interview with Asha and Hayley. Toward the end, Hayley talks a little about Archerie (I'm liking that name whenever I see it).

Looking forward to the upcoming episode. I'm wondering what's next for the OTP.

I don't think we'll do one. Yeah, Archie and Val have been very well-handled. I spent the first four episodes rooting for Archie and Betty.

Then, to my surprise, I started liking Archerie just as much after the fifth. When episode 6 ended, I knew I'd begun to prefer A/V.

Since we're getting a second season, I hope that this pairing has a long way to go, just like in the comics.

She certainly brings out the best in Archie.
