Riverdale aired its first episode in 2017 on The CW, however ever since Chilling Adventures of Sabrina was launched to Netflix in 2018, followers have been clamoring for a crossover or two. Why? In the comics, each universes are interconnected with their neighboring cities of Riverdale and Greendale, the characters’ relationships, and peculiar occurrences.
Both TV exhibits take issues a couple of steps additional with their darkish themes, steamy teen romances, and wild however thrilling storylines which have audiences hooked. The sequence have the identical creator/showrunner in widespread—Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa—and he’s teased that ultimately each worlds might collide. Season three of CAOS threw in a handful of nods to Riverdale and now followers need extra.
Here are the not-so-subtle shoutouts from Greendale to Riverdale. Don’t learn forward when you have but to binge the ENTIRE season of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
Penelope Blossom, is that you just?
It didn’t take an excessive amount of time to identify the primary wink to Riverdale
followers as a result of episode one options Nathalie Boltt. The actress performs Penelope
Blossom on The CW’s hit sequence, and in a single scene in Chilling Adventures,
viewers nearly thought the character had traveled to New Orleans.
Nope. For just some seconds, Boltt performed a girl acquaintance
named Ms. Dubois, a disguise worn by Prudence for a glamour spell to entice
Father Blackwood. The magic was shed and so was Boltt’s accent as Dubois when the
witch revealed herself.
A visit to Riverdale was obligatory
In episode 3, Sabrina goes on an “Unholy Regalia” quest with Ambrose to search out King Herod’s crown. They discovered it was stashed in Riverdale of all locations, and on their drive there, the digital camera cuts to an indication with Jughead’s tag signature on it. “JJ wuz here” is written in graffiti subsequent to the abbreviation for Southside Serpents on a Riverdale welcome signal.
That’s not all. The crown itself was hidden inside a maple tree, presumably one on land that belongs to Cheryl Blossom’s household. If you missed that clue, Ambrose makes a comment concerning the scent of maple syrup when he was within the mortuary and King Herod tried to sneak up on him.
Pop’s is a neighborhood favourite
Aunt Hilda, having simply revealed her spider transformation
to Dr. Cerberus, tells him she has a longing for one thing aside from flies. During
a scene in episode six, she asks that he go to a diner in Riverdale that has
the “juiciest hamburgers and thickest milkshakes,” and he units off to make a
run to Pop’s Chock’lit Shoppe. He does, and that led to a different Riverdale hyperlink.
Gangsters get round
No one was anticipating candy Aunt Hildie to show right into a murderous monster with a lust for human blood, however it occurred. After Dr. C stepped out for a burger run in episode six, a member of the Southside Serpents walked into his store.
Hilda was in there alone and he was scooped up off the ground inside moments and was spider meals. We’re undecided if the unnamed biker shall be talked about in any upcoming episodes or seasons of Riverdale, however that may be cool.
Will there be a creepy crossover between Riverdale and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina? Will each cheerleading squads face off within the close to future? We’re undecided, however right here’s to hoping Aguirre-Sacasa makes it occur.
