Lili Reinhart & ‘Riverdale’ Showrunner Discuss That Final Scene of the Season 3 Premiere

WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD!

We pretty sure it wasn’t just us that was 100% confused over the final scene of Riverdale last night.

If you missed the premiere, look away now, if you watched – what the heck was that scene?!

We watched as Betty (Lili Reinhart) watched her mom Alice (Madchen Amick) and sister Polly (Tiera Skovbye) performing a ritual with the Farm, where Polly’s twins floated over a fire. The weird and strange ritual caused Betty to faint – but was that real or just her imagination?

“[When I read the script], I immediately texted [showrunner] Roberto [Aguirre-Sacasa] and was like, ‘Does this show have magic in it now? Is it supernatural now?’ and he said, ‘No, I promise you it’s not,’” Lili shared with TV Guide.

She adds, “I was immediately like, ‘OK, it was a hallucination. Maybe Betty is having a bad reaction to her Adderall and the high stress, or something really weird is going on with the Farm. I think it’s a mix of all of those things.”

Roberto added more about that final scene we watched, saying that “it means that either Betty is having a hallucination, or some very, very, very scary cult members have come to Riverdale, or it means both…”

“We wanted something that was really shocking and disturbing and disorienting. The reason I can’t tell you conclusively what it is, is because that’s the big mystery. I can tell you that it only kind of gets freakier from that moment on.”
