The girls are enjoying the fine foods and even finer looking gentlemen of France—but what they’d really like is to be back in their hometown! Meanwhile, back in Riverdale there’s a new love triangle brewing between foreign exchange student Banni, Dilton and… Jughead?!! Will Betty and Veronica return to their old routines and familiar faces once their trip is over, or will nothing ever be the same again?
