Now it seems that Riverdale is going full-on Grease — which makes perfect sense, given the rivalry between the north and south sides of the small town. In Grease, two rival gangs — the T-Birds and the Scorpions — battle it out for bragging rights by racing their cars. Now, it seems that's exactly what will go down on Riverdale between the Northsiders and the Southside Serpents.
Charles Melton, who plays Reggie on the series, recently shared this Instagram post which is just oozing with Grease references. That car! Betty's '50s-style headband! Whatever Cheryl is wearing! This musical theater geek is living for it.
"[S]ipping on dat sparklin’ water this Wednesday #riverdale," wrote the actor of the pic.
The promo for the new episode also seems to suggest that the show is borrowing shots from the John Travolta movie. Check out Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch) at the 0:08 second mark.
Now watch this clip from Grease, at the 0:09 second mark.
Obviously, we now have so many questions. Is Jughead (Cole Sprouse) supposed to be Danny in this Grease-meets-Riverdale scenario? Is Betty (Lili Reinhart) Sandy? Will Josie (Ashleigh Murray) and her Pussycats round out the rest of the Pink Ladies?
Wednesday needs to get here as fast as Grease Lightning so we can find out.
