We're getting closer and closer to the return of Riverdale with each passing day, and as the days go on, all we can do is speculate and theorize what our favorite characters will be up to when Season 3 premieres.
Thankfully, we just got a new trailer for the upcoming season, and let's just say it doesn't disappoint. From Archie in handcuffs, to hookups and fights from multiple characters, there's definitely major drama and danger coming.
But one detail about Archie Andrews in particular has got fans buzzing... THAT SERPENT TATTOO!
Around the 11-second mark, Archie is shirtless, unsurprisingly, but what is shocking is what's on his arm! He clearly has a Southside Serpents tattoo, and now we're all just trying to figure out how and why. Our favorite redhead isn't exactly a member of the Serpents, so what is the meaning behind this permanent image?
Of course, many have taken to social media to theorize why they think Archie's sporting the new ink.
So, I've come to the conclusion that's Archie's serpent tattoo is only meant to keep him safe whilst he's in jail. It's hopefully only temporary so that he's protected from ghoulies or whoever 🤷🏻♀️— 🍃 Amy 🍃 (@Bugheads_Babies) August 30, 2018
One believes it's the only way Archie is being kept safe.
so the Serpents have small and simple tattoos where as Archie’s is full color and takes up half his arm. do you think that has something to do with if he’s actually a serpent or is Archie just extra af pic.twitter.com/SmpIxZ2uPz— shiloh kuznetsov (@shilohkuz) August 30, 2018
Another questions if the specifics of the tattoo have a further meaning.
Someone tell me Veronica is gonna pay a tattoo remover to Archie after he’s out of prison so I ain’t gonna have to see that ugly ass tattoo every time he’s shirtless, PLEASE pic.twitter.com/ff6fNvyli0— milly (@archiercnnie) August 30, 2018
While a third is hoping it's removed ASAP!
Riverdale Season 3 premieres on Oct. 10, and yes, we're counting down the days.
