Welcome back to Humor Nation. While Bughead and Varchie have been the prominent couples on the show for the most time, but Choni has now become an extremely popular couple. Their relationship progressed pretty quickly as they became friends in Season 2 and then it turned into a romantic thing. Even though Cheryl always looked down upon the Southsiders, but she grew closer to Toni. It’s interesting to note that these two had not interacted until the event of the Riverdale Drag Race where the Serpents challenged the Ghoulies for territory. It was during this time Chery took the position of Toni as the flag girl. Cheryl referred to Toni as Cha Cha.
Obviously they didn’t start off the right foot. Later, when the Southside High School got shut down and Toni, Sweet Pea, Fangs, Toni, along with other Southsiders were transferred to the Riverdale High, they were welcomed by Veronica and the group. Veronica set up a registration desk to help them get started. But Cheryl interrupted and started insulting the Southsiders. saying that Riverdale High’s classrooms would now be overcrowded with underachievers. Toni took offense to the words and confronted Cheryl, the situation was about to escalate, but Archie stepped in.
In their next encounter, Toni tried understanding the motivations of Cheryl’s actions, but Cheryl was reluctant to open up. The same night they met again at the Bijou. Toni had come to watch the movie with Fangs, but she was stood up so she suggested that they watch the movie together as both of them were alone. They bonded well over the movie and then stopped at the Pop’s where Cheryl finally opened up and revealed to Toni about Heather, a girl she loved, but her mother destroyed it.
