Riverdale's Cole Sprouse on That Epic Bughead Reunion: "They Need Each Other"

So they can stay together now, right?

The best news about Riverdale lately is that Jughead (Cole Sprouse) and Betty (Lili Reinhart) are back together, but are they going to be able to stay that way?

It's been a turbulent second season for the love birds, complete with tearful breakups in the rain, dark paths and secret kisses with best friends while hunting down serial killers. But according to Cole Sprouse, Betty and Jughead have finally figured out that they belong together.

"I don't think there's been a formal declaration in words as to whether they are reunited, but they're certainly acknowledging the fact that they can't stay away from each other," Sprouse told TV Guide during a recent visit to the Riverdale set. "They are, funny enough, both dealing with very similar issues that they tried to tackle independently and there's an acknowledgement that when they work together, they work best."

Last season it was easy for Betty and Jughead to stay on the same page because the problems they were dealing with weren't as serious as a serial killer or gang wars. This season, in the face of all these various external forces trying to tear them apart, Betty and Jughead have faced a much harder journey. Luckily, it seems that they have finally learned their lesson.

"I think these next two episodes are really establishing that they need each other's assistance," Sprouse teased.

Riverdale continues Wednesdays at 8/7c on The CW.
