Emilija Baranac (Midge) and Nikolai Witschl (Dr Curdle Jr) both guest star in Sabrina season 2...
Ever since Chilling Adventures of Sabrina debuted on Netflix in late October last year, fans have been analysing the series for Riverdale connections. It's no secret that Sabrina and Riverdale exist in the same universe (Greendale and Riverdale are only a Sweetwater River apart) and Sabrina season 1 is filled with multiple Riverdale references and easter eggs. Season 2 is no different but, what fans may not realise, is that it actually has two Riverdale cameos.
How are Riverdale and Sabrina connected in CAOS season 2?
Emilija Baranac (the iconic Midge Klump who was murdered by the Black Hood in A Night to Remember) and Nikolai Witschl (Riverdale's medical examiner Dr Curdle Jr) both guest star in Sabrina season 2. However, instead of reprising their Riverdale roles, they take on completely new parts in Sabrina. Emilija and Nikolai star in Doctor Cerberus's House of Horror and they both significantly impact the course of the Sabrina episode.
The episode features a fortune teller who does tarot readings of Sabrina's main characters. Emilija appears in Ros' future. In the vision, Ros' dad's church pays for her to have a procedure to get her sight back but it turns out that her doctor has done it by ripping out a girl called Audrey's eyes (Emilija). Nikolai is then in Harvey's future. He plays Harvey's art school roommate, Howard, who is haunted by Satan and kills himself.
Emilija and Nikolai aren't the only Riverdale connections in Sabrina season 2 though. Archie comics are all over Dr. Cerberus' book shop and Harvey seems to be a huge fan. In one scene, he can be seen holding one and in another, there are multiple Archie posters on his bedroom walls. 'Mad House' which is written on the posters is the first Archie comic which Sabrina appeared in before getting her own series.
Check out the comics and posters below.
If that weren't enough Sabrina also still has her Archie thermos from season 1 and Sabrina and Ambrose visit Sweetwater River in season 2. So, while there unfortunately wasn't an actual Riverdale character appearance like in season 1 (RIP Ben), there were plenty of connections to keep Riverdale fans satisfied.
As it stands, there is no word on whether we'll be getting an official Riverdale/Sabrina crossover in the coming seasons but, given all of the easter eggs and the fact that they are part of the same fictional world, we think that it's a definite possibility.
