Riverdale Fans Are Speculating Over a Tiny Season 3 Teaser Clue, and Reactions Are Very Mixed

Every detail matters in the new Riverdale Season 3 teaser.

Eagle-eyed fans caught a tiny detail that could have a big impact in the video after it was released Aug. 29. Now, speculation is running rampant on Twitter. Everyone has opinion—and definitely not the same one.

The clue in question makes just the briefest appearance in the teaser. If you look carefully at the 11-second mark in the video below, you'll see it: shirtless Archie (KJ Apa) with some very interesting new ink on his right arm.

A lot of fans are convinced the tattoo means that Archie is officially a member of the Southside Serpents. Some are happy about, some are angry, and others are just plain entertained.

Other fans are not so convinced that Archie is actually a member of the gang, and they have some theories on why he'd have the tattoo in that case.

The mystery will be solved at some point during Riverdale Season 3. The show returns Wednesday, Oct. 10 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
