The CW did a lot of promotion of last week’s episode of Riverdale called “The Great Escape” with a clip of the character Joaquin (Rob Raco) kissing Archie (KJ Apa) in jail. Of course, we saw that it was hardly romantic, and actually became a violent situation where the next thing to happen was Archie getting stabbed.
During our visit to the Riverdale sets in Vancouver last week, we asked Casey Cott (Kevin) if he’s going to find out about Joaquin — who, of course, was Kevin’s ex-boyfriend – kissing Archie.
“I think Kevin is going to find out about that. In fact, I know Kevin’s going to find out about that,” Casey teased. “Kevin and Archie have some wonderful scenes in 5 and 6 and that’s really fun because I love KJ. Those characters are really fun to watch because they are both really loyal, loving characters. So its fun to see them interact. They are so different. The first thing Archie does, in typical Archie fashion, is say that to Kevin so it is funny. Its fun! But I dint think it was the kind of kiss that Joaquin and Kevin were at, so, a little different,” he qualified.
You can see video of portions of our group interview with Casey Cott below. The next new episode of Riverdale airs November 28 on The CW.
