WARNING: We're about to reveal the most shocking moment from this week's episode of Riverdale! If you do not want to be spoiled, hitchhike your way away from the screen. For everyone else, prepare to have your jaws drop in three, two, one…
Cheryl Blossom has officially gone off the deep end!
On the latest episode of Riverdale, "Chapter 20: Tales From the Darkside," a secret admirer kept sending Josie cryptic gifts (Ew! A pig's heart!) as well as terrifying love notes with messages saying, "If I can't have you, no one can." At first, Josie thought the presents were sent by Chuck Clayton -- the womanizing jock we met back in season one -- but by the end of the episode, the cameras revealed to the audience that it's actually Cheryl who has a crush on The Pussycats' lead singer.
It seems that Cheryl's newfound infatuation with Josie blossomed after she – along with Veronica and The Pussycats – saved Cheryl from Nick St. Clair's sadistic clutches.
To get the truth, ET recently sat down with star Madelaine Petsch for the latest episode of Sweetwater Secrets -- ET's Riverdale-themed YouTube series -- and the red-headed beauty revealed the real reasons why Cheryl is so drawn to Josie.
"Last season, we talked a lot about how close [Cheryl and Josie] were, but you never really saw it on camera," Petsch explained. "But Josie is the only real ally that Cheryl has in this school and the only person that Cheryl is willing to open up to even the littlest bit. She hasn't really opened up to her too much, but they create a really beautiful friendship in the beginning of the season."
"And then chaos happens," Petsch added cryptically.
