We already suspected that the second season of Riverdale would be even darker than the first, but Lili Reinhart (AKA Betty Cooper) confirmed it herself when she stopped by the brand-new, relaunched TRL to give fans some inside scoop about what we can expect next from Archie and the gang.

鈥淵ou gotta choose a side, basically,鈥 Reinhart explained after teasing the 鈥渕ajor rift鈥 between the North and South sides of the drama-ridden town. And while that sets up plenty of intense story lines on its own, it鈥檚 certainly not the only trouble that鈥檚 brewing.

Referring to the fact that the season two poster shows a few letters blacked out in the sign for Pop Tate鈥檚 diner, ominously spelling out the word 鈥淒IE,鈥 Reinhart said, 鈥淚t鈥檚 kind of nicknamed the death diner in season two because of what happened to Fred [Andrews, Archie鈥檚 dad], and we pick up right where we left off, seconds after Fred gets shot.鈥 (Um, does that mean Fred doesn鈥檛 make it?!)

We won鈥檛 deny that we鈥檙e anxious to see what happens to Fred, but we鈥檙e even more excited to find out what鈥檚 happening with Betty and Jughead.

Describing their relationship as one that would be marked on Facebook as 鈥淚t鈥檚 Complicated鈥 (yeah, we get that), the actress gave us a little more insight into their budding (yet struggling) romance. 鈥淚 mean, they鈥檙e on different sides. Jughead鈥檚 on the South side. She鈥檚 on the North side. And it鈥檚 like a little 鈥楻omeo and Juliet鈥 sort of situation between the two of them.鈥 (Let鈥檚 just hope this love story has a better outcome.)

We鈥檒l be able to watch all of the star-crossed drama when season two of Riverdale comes to The CW on October 11 鈥 just over one week away!
