Riverdale fans go wild as Mary comes out – and confirms relationship with Brooke in wake of Fred’s death – The Sun

RIVERDALE fans were left over the moon after Archie Andrews' mother Mary came out as queer, confirming a romance with college pal Brooke.

The moment took place in episode 71 How to Get Away With Murder, after Riverdale and Archie began to come to terms with Jughead Jones' apparent murder.

Mary and her pal Brooke Rivers had been helping Archie decide what to do after high school, and Brooke had offered to help him get into the Navy.

Later, Mary apologised to Archie for pushing him to make a decision, and in the process, revealed that Brooke has actually become her girlfriend.

Brooke had, said Mary, been comforting her in the months since the death of her former husband, and Archie's dad, Fred Andrews.

"We stan ! Mary Andrews is our mama bear lesbian y'all!" shared one over the moon fan, while another added: "Mary Andrews said Lesbian rights."

"#RiverdaleMARY IS A LESBIAN …. THIS IS WHAT WINNING FEELS LIKE," said a third happy fan.

Season four of the hit show returned in October 2019 after becoming one of the biggest teen drama programmes, having amassed a global fanbase throughout its three-year run.

The early part of season four was heavily centred around the death of Luke Perry, who was played by Fred Andrews in the teen drama.

Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa made the revelation to Vanity Fair, telling the mag: “We thought that rather than try to squeeze something in [season three], we would let the season play out and then really do it justice and honor both Luke and Fred at the beginning of season four”.

The loss of Perry “absolutely is informing and changing what we’re doing in Season 4," he said.

"Especially in terms of Archie’s story but really in the overall tone of the show”.

Luke died in hospital aged 52 after suffering a stroke.

He passed away surrounded by his family – including Jack and Sophie and fiance Wendy Madison Bauer.

His rep said: "Actor Luke Perry, 52, passed away today after suffering a massive stroke. The family appreciates the outpouring of support and prayers that have been extended to Luke from around the world, and respectfully request privacy in this time of great mourning.

"No further details will be released at this time."
