‘Riverdale’: Madelaine Petsch Breaks Down Cheryl’s Epic, Time-Spanning Romance

Cheryl Blossom (Madelaine Petsch) has always been a stand-out character on The CW’s Riverdale. But this week’s episode, “Chapter Ninety-Nine: The Witching Hour(s)” was on another level entirely. Written by Arabella Anderson and directed by James DeWille, over the course of three different time periods we learned the truth about Cheryl, her history, and why she thinks she’s cursed.

“I think for the first time we truly see a full Blossom, Cheryl moment,” Petsch told Decider. “Of watching her love, loss, heartbreak and harden. If anything, you get a further understanding into the way Cheryl is today.”

Spoilers past this point, but in the hour, we meet Abigail Blossom in 1892 and Poppyseed Blossom in 1957, both played by Petsch, who ultimately turn out to be… The same person. In 1892, we learn, Abigail fell in love with a woman named Thomasina Topaz (Vanessa Morgan). In order to be with her, she killed a powerful warlock named Fenn Fogarty (Drew Ray Tanner), who cursed her to be immortal and forever alone. In 1957, the pattern repeated when Poppy (really Abigail in disguise) fell in love with Bitsy (Lili Reinhart), who was forced to reject her by her abusive husband, Jack (Cole Sprouse).

But the cycle finally breaks in 2021 when Cheryl — who is also Abigail — recruits none other than Sabrina Spellman (Kiernan Shipka) to perform a spell of transference. As Bailey’s Comet passes overhead, “Cheryl,” Sabrina and Nana Rose (Barbara Wallace) chant magic words, and transfer Abigail’s spirit from Cheryl’s body, into Nana’s. As Nana’s body dies, Abigail is able to finally rejoin Thomasina in the afterlife, while Nana Rose lives on in Cheryl’s body.

Oh, and probably pretty important to mention: this all takes place in a dark, alternate universe called RiverVALE, not RiverDALE. It’s also currently unclear exactly how this all might impact the show when it returns to quote unquote normal when the series continues on March 6, 2022; though showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa has assured Decider in the past that all of this is in continuity, and it all matters.

5 Skincare Secrets Madelaine Petsch Swears By For Her Bright And Dewy Complexion

If there’s one thing that Madelaine Petsch will never cut corners on, it’s her skincare routine. The actress and Riverdale star has been open in the past about the amount of energy she usually dedicates to taking care of skin, and she’s also revealed a number of products she typically uses to keep her skin healthy and hydrated while at it.

Last year while sharing her everyday skincare routine with Vogue, she named a number of products that she usually relies on to keep her skin in shape, most of which were those from cult favorite brands such as the Renée Rouleau Elderberry Soothing Toner, the Sisley Paris Sisleÿa L’Intégral Anti-Age Eye & Lip Contour Cream & Massage Tool, and the Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado.

While the aforementioned products are of the luxury variety, Petsch is also a big fan of drugstore brands. The star is currently a Bliss ambassador, and she frequently speaks highly of the brand’s budget products that she uses on busy work days in between scenes.

 Madelaine Petsch Can’t Live Without Nail Art And Her Dog

On Riverdale, the only rule seems to be that there are no rules (we’re talking about a show that had an entire season revolve around a demented board game). The one constant is Madelaine Petsch’s masterful portrayal of mean girl Cheryl Blossom, whose razor-sharp insults and classic red lipstick have become one of the most iconic parts of the series.

While she excels at playing the villain onscreen, in real life—or at least over the phone—she couldn’t be sweeter as we discuss self-care, TikTok, and of course, skin care. As someone who’s struggled with acne in the past, Petsch takes her skin care seriously, and her current partnership with Bliss is proof. “I just love Bliss,” she tells Glamour. “They have clean products and they’re very transparent about what’s inside of their products so that you can actually feel comfortable with what you’re putting on your skin.”
