Guess Which of These Riverdale Storylines Is Real and Which I Completely Made Up

Riverdale In Review with cherries next to it

The final week of Riverdale is upon us, and I am not emotionally prepared!!!! So I’m coping the only way I know how, which is to revisit some of the wildest, weirdest, and WTF-iest (complimentary) storylines the show has given us through the past seven seasons. All week, I’ll be serving up some retrospective Riverdale content as I look back on the show that taught me how to embrace the absurdity of life.

First up: this chaotic quiz! Be warned that spoilers abound for the entirety of Riverdale, including season seven, which ends THIS WEDNESDAY. I mayhaps (as Cheryl Blossom would say) had a little too much fun coming up with fake storylines and details for Riverdale. I hope you have as much fun taking the quiz as I had making it!!

  1. 20/20! My god, do I love the batshit fever dream of a love letter to pop culture that is Riverdale, and how fun to revisit these truly bananas storylines.

    I too am NOT READY for this ride to be over. Thank you Kayla for your hilarious and insightful recaps and updates about the epic highs and lows (lol) of this show over the years!!!

  2. I can’t believe how many crazy storylines Riverdale has had over the years. I think I got most of them right, but I’m not sure about a few. I’m definitely going to have to go back and rewatch some episodes to refresh my memory.

    Many thanks!
