One of the Riverdale writers just dropped a major hint about an upcoming sex scene involving the show’s two bisexual characters. #Choni fans, strap inliterallytoo much?
Writer Brian E. Paterson answered fan questions about The CW show yesterday and insinuated that the love story between Toni Topaz and Cheryl Blossom is heating up.
Adopting the fan-originated portmanteau of Cheryl and Toni, the writer tweeted, “Don’t fret, Choni fans, there is some really good stuff coming in our final few episodes.”
A fan responded to Paterson, asking him to “fave” her tweet if the upcoming episodes will feature a kiss between the two bisexual women. He responded, “Lol. We’ve got stuff on tap better than just kisses.” Blushing!
This season of Riverdale has delivered solid representation to bisexual women and QWOC, and it looks like the hit show is only just getting started. Earlier in the season, Cheryl Blossom, played by Madelaine Petsch, came out to her friend Toni (Vanessa Morgan), recalling a time in her youth when she developed feelings for her best friend. Her evil hag mother sent her to conversion therapy as a response. Since then, Cheryl and Toni have naturally developed feelings for each other.
The best part about Choni is that the two women claim to be BFFs in real life. Petsch jokingly described their first kiss as “salty.”
“I was like, ‘Thank god, that was my best friend, because that would be so embarrassing had it be anyone else,’” she quipped.
Morgan, too, is pleasantly surprised by the bisexual storyline. Back in November, the Canadian actress told Cosmopolitan that she’s “super pumped” to be working on a show that puts diverse people and sexualities at the forefront of the story.
“It’s casting characters that every person can relate tohaving bisexual and gay characters, all ethnicities,” she said. “When people see ‘bisexual,’ they still confuse it with promiscuity, which is so wrong. So I was so pumped to be the first bisexual on Riverdale and just normalize that for viewers.”
Riverdale returns Wednesday April 25 on The CW.
