'Riverdale' Showrunner Talks About The Aftermath of Cheryl's Assault

'Riverdale' Showrunner Talks About The Aftermath of Cheryl's Assault

While Riverdale isn’t set in a particular era, the show took on a timely subject in sexual assault.

Showrunner Roberto Aguire Sacasa opened up to Variety about the storyline and how the show is going to handle the consequences for Nick St. Clair and touch on Cheryl’s state of mind.

“No one loves these characters more than I do — no one treasures them more than I do. So I think we try to handle things with care, but they are teenagers, and teenagers do bad things,” Roberto explained on why they chose to take on the touchy subject manner.

“We try to not do it for shock and salacious reasons,” he adds. “We try to make sure it comes out of an emotionally true place for the character, that it’s earned, and that we follow through on all of these things.”

For Cheryl and Nick, this won’t just be a one and done episode, it’s going to go on for the whole season.

“We thought, ‘Wow, this is actually a huge, deep story that can continue for not just Cheryl but Veronica, their parents, and Archie.’ So far, it’s something we’ve been tracking through the rest of the season.”

Riverdale airs Wednesdays on The CW.

Madelaine Petsch Shares Important PSA Following 'Riverdale's Rape Scene

Madelaine Petsch Shares Important PSA Following 'Riverdale's Rape Scene

Riverdale took on the heavy topic of rape and consent this week on the show.

Nick St. Clair almost date raped Cheryl Blossom in last night’s episode before Veronica, Josie, Valerie and Melody shut that down and beat him up — and it only fired Madelaine Petsch to bring even more light to these issues with a PSA.

“[When I was] reading it, I felt like it was just another thing for Cheryl to deal with, and this is a huge thing,” Madelaine stresses to ET. “It makes sense for us to be bringing these [issues] to light and I think it’s very rare for TV shows to be doing that — especially ones that are more geared towards younger fans.”

She adds, “I think it’s important to kind of let them let [Riverdale's young audience] know what’s going on in the world and all that kinds of stuff, but at the same time, it’s just hard.

Check out the PSA Madelaine created below:

WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD – DO NOT READ IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW!

Madelaine Petsch just took on an extreme scene on Riverdale last night.

The actress’ character Cheryl Blossom was drugged by Nick St. Clair and he took her back to his hotel room with the clear intent of raping her.

“I’ll be honest, I cried,” Madelaine confessed to ET. “I cried and I called my mom. I didn’t tell her what happened, obviously, but I was like, ‘This is a really heavy episode.’”

She adds, “This is a huge topic, especially right now with what’s going on in the world, and it’s so close to home and it’s so important to portray it properly.”

“I felt a huge responsibility to make it real, but then also there was a part of me where my heart was breaking,” Madelaine shared. “So it was a very interesting moment for me to get that [script] and there was no warning coming.”

In the episode, Cheryl said she wanted to press charges against Nick for his actions and this is actually a storyline that JJJ hopes we get to see play out in full.

Madelaine Petsch Lets Boyfriend Travis Mills Do Her Makeup in a New Video - Watch!

Madelaine Petsch‘s boyfriend, rapper Travis Mills, scored pretty high on his Riverdale trivia last month and now he continues to impress by being… kind of good at makeup?

In a new Youtube video on Madelaine‘s channel, the actress lets her boyfriend apply a full face of makeup, and it goes much better than you might expect.

Travis applies foundation (he even knew that it “corresponds” with the beauty blender), mascara (“Oh, hell yeah”), eyebrow tin, and more, and while he doesn’t know what all of the products are, it definitely isn’t bad.

Madelaine explains that he went to cosmetology school, so maybe that explains his prowess!

While the end result makes her scream that she looks “like an actual witch,” Madelaine‘s true thoughts come at the end of the video.

“Between me and you it actually doesn’t look that bad.”

Madelaine Petsch and Lili Reinhart may be BFFs IRL, but that certainly isn’t the case on Riverdale — and they’re okay with that.

“People ask me all the time: How can I be so mean to my best friends?” Madelaine recounted on Sweetwater Secrets, “but those are the people you want to do it with.”

“If I was to be an awful human being like Cheryl to people I didn’t know I would be mortified,” she continued.

That definitely makes sense: filming fighting scenes with your best friend would be much more comfortable than a complete stranger!

“It was really fun too to have the dynamic change between Betty and Cheryl,” Madelaine continued, referring to a scene from last week’s episode. “I think it was a really cool moment.”
