at . Comments

Hopefully, you've already seen our conversation with hot dad, Luke Perry aka Fred Andrews.

If you have, you know how much Perry enjoys his scenes with on-screen son, KJ Apa.

What Apa reveals during the interview you can watch below is the amount of screentime the two will share will be minimal during Riverdale Season 3.

That's because as we now know Archie is paying a big price for Hiram's misdeeds.

During that time, Archie will be forced to stand on his own two feet with nobody to lean on for comfort.

After taking so long to form relationships with people he can trust, it's a shame Archie will feel so alone.

But even though he'll be out of the line of site and his relationship with Veronica will be challenged, we know she's not giving up on him -- yet.

Mysteriously, Apa mentions Veronica will mention some other people while he's away, but he doesn't clarify who those people might be.

Apa also talks a lot about Archie's relationship with Fred, and how it parallels his relationship with his father.

Growing up in the spotlight isn't easy, but it seems the younger cast of Riverdale is growing into their own and finding their way through the fame.

Are you worried about Archie in juvie?

Riverdale Quotes

Archie: Ronnie, when I first met you … you were it for me. Everything I could ever wanted. I saw our whole future.
Veronica: Because we’re endgame, Archie.
Archie: I hope you know how much I love you.
Veronica: If you loved me, you would come home.
Archie: God, Ronnie, you know in your heart that I’m right about this. It just hurts to admit it.
Veronica: Don’t you make me say goodbye, Archie Andrews, because I don’t wanna hear it back. I can’t. I can’t.
[She drops the phone, cries, and Kevin consoles her]

Veronica: What the hell is a "Sticky Maple"?
Kevin: It's kinda what it sounds like. It's a Riverdale thing.
Veronica: No, Kevin, it's a slut-shaming thing. And I'm neither a slut nor am I going to be shamed by someone named, excuse me, Chuck Clayton! Does he really think he can get away with this? Does he not know who I am?! I will cut the brakes on his supped-up phallic symbol.
