The Riverdale fab five piled onto the couch on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night, and if they didn’t know Jimmy was a superfan of the show, they definitely do now.

While sporting Jughead’s beanie, Jimmy revealed to the Riverdale crew he’d seen a screener of season two’s first episode. He reacted with a lot of ‘whews’ and ‘whoa, man’s’, pointing at Camila Mendes and raising his eyebrows. Hmm…

Jimmy said,

“Let’s just say, two people end up in the hospital. What?! I don’t even want to say who it is. So many good twists and turns and it’s nasty, it’s funny, it’s cool. And it’s well-shot. Props to the fog machine.”

And then he asked Cole Sprouse if he could reveal Jughead’s season two vehicle of choice. We’re interested… and also what a weird way to phrase that, Jimmy.

Jimmy revealed,

“There’s a motorcycle in season two, you guys.”

To which KJ Apa claps more enthusiastically than I’ve ever seen a boy clap in my life. I guess Jughead looks pretty great on this motorcycle? Or KJ really likes motorcycles?

Either way, Jimmy was incredibly reactive to the premiere of Riverdale season two. To be fair, on the Jimmy Fallon spectrum of reacting wildly, the tamest reaction is throwing his head back so far he might break his neck and laughing at a cringe-worthy anecdote a guest thought was really great.

But the man couldn’t even string a sentence together to describe the Riverdale episode, so can we please just see this season already?! Goodness.
