Three couples are up for Riverdale Picnic King and Queen and ironically all the couples holding this honor have gone on to marry each other. Archie sees work, work, work, where as Veronica sees the poorhouse. Reggie pictures Betty doing everything and Betty imagines living a fake existence. To their relief Jughead and big Ethyl win and their future looks blissful with a never-ending supply of food. // When Archie and Betty are cast as Ponce and Cinderella in the school play, Reggie and Veronica vow to take over the lead roles. Reggie sabotages the stage and props, while Veronica dresses up to replace Betty after playing the stepmother. Ms Grundy takes to the stage as the stepmother to straighten the show out but then the backdrop collapses on the cast. Archie comes up with the slipper for Betty and the audience eats up this comic rock version of the classic fairytale.
