Clues Betty Will Be Pregnant By The End Of 'Riverdale' Season 5

Betty Cooper pregnancy rumors have been a staple of Riverdale discourse since Season 1, so when I first heard that there was a rumor that Season 5 would end with Betty expecting, I brushed it off. Still, I'm a sucker for a good theory, and, looking at all the evidence, I'm more than a little convinced Betty will be pregnant on Riverdale by the end of Season 5. Here's a rundown of all the proof so far, from emoji clues to a very symbolic Barchie window.

The Pregnant Emoji

Fans started fueling rumors of a pregnancy a few months ago, after Riverdale showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa posted a cast photo celebrating the end of production on Season 5. As you can see, here's a lot of text here, so, I'm just going to zoom in on the emojis, because that's where the real dirt is:

The emojis do include a pregnant blonde lady, and given the fact that Aguirre-Sacasa isn't afraid of changing emoji skin tones, that can't be a mistake. Granted, there are a few other characters it could be. Betty might be Riverdale's most identifiable blonde, but she's not the only one, and she's definitely not the only white girl in town. (As far as I know, a redhead emoji has yet to be created, meaning this could be any woman with any hair color other than brown.) Yes, the pregnant woman could be Betty, but it could also be Polly, Cheryl, or someone we barely know. That said, all signs seem to point to one Betty Cooper getting knocked up by the season's end.
