The Character of Cheryl (Cherry) Blossom was introduced to Riverdale to spice things up, I guess. This is the cover story, but it seems obvious that she was added to introduce SEX to Riverdale.
Cherry Blossom is a walking double-entendre. She exudes sexual-tension. That's why the character, and gags like this work. But... look at the face of Archie's mother:
But if we really think about it, this is not a new thing. Where have we seen a sexy Cherry Before?
By adding the character of Cherry Blossom it's like Archie comics has somehow broken the fourth wall. A fourth wall that leads into a strip club. I for one am happy!
