​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.

One believes it's the only way Archie is being kept safe.

Another questions if the specifics of the tattoo have a further meaning.

While a third is hoping it's removed ASAP!


Riverdale Season 3 premieres on Oct. 10, and yes, we're counting down the days.
