The “Riverdale” sequence finale left viewers puzzled, placing the present’s primary characters in a four-way relationship … a choice that is actually pissed off the polyamorous group.
In case you did not catch the episode, it was a wierd one — which turned par for the present — however the “stunning twist” included a sequence the place Archie, Betty, Jughead and Veronica have been a part of a quad-relationship.
Reactions have been blended, however many followers felt present creators solely used the connection for a “wow issue.”
We spoke to Brett Chamberlin, Govt Director, OPEN (Group for Polyamory and Moral Non-monogamy) who tells us, although “tempting to rejoice each portrayal of non-monogamy in common media,” it must be carried out each responsibly and from a spot of understanding.
He continues… “It is irritating that Riverdale used its characters’ non-monogamous relationship as a ‘stunning twist’ reasonably than partaking with an genuine portrayal of non-monogamy as merely being a part of individuals’s identities.”
Chamberlin continues, “We did not see or hear something about why these characters apply non-monogamy, what it means for them, the substance of their relationship agreements and communication practices, or any of the opposite underlying motivations and work that makes relationships of any kind perform.”
So whereas “Riverdale” could be carried out … the drama from the present’s ending nonetheless hasn’t settled.
