Sitting on tree dating
After class, Veronica asks Ethel what’s up, and Ethel confesses that her home life isn’t so great at the moment.
So Veronica invites Ethel to hang the next day, and when Kevin asks V about the invite, Veronica opens up about her former life as a bully.
Then, Polly steals Archie away for a dance and lets him in on her secret: she’s only at Thorn Hill to spy on the Blossoms, because she’s sure that the Blossoms had something to do with Jason’s death. But we don’t get to dwell on that, because Archie is like, , and quickly runs after Cheryl, who’s just had a fight with her father. Once again, Archie doesn’t dwell, and instead has another run-in with Cheryl — who’s changed her mind about him being better than everyone else.

The next morning, Val breaks up with Archie for ignoring her, even though now he’s done with the Blossoms. After Veronica apologizes again, Ethel tells V that she’s not to blame for what her dad did, and that Veronica was there for her when no one else was.
But, because these two actually have a pretty healthy relationship most of the time. Lodge comes clean to Veronica about the drive-in land woes — and Veronica urges her to come clean to Mr.
Andrews about who really owns the land (the Lodges)…before he finds out from someone else.
