Archie and Valerie get to know each other when Archie asks to sit in on rehearsal sessions with The Pussycats. At first she mediates his presence with Josie, but later she helps him work through hiccups in his music, telling him to trust his music. Archie is enthralled by Valerie, but they keep their relationship focused on the music until after the variety show when they finally kiss. They start dating, but Archie neglects her and Valerie breaks up with him, which he doesn't take well, trying to win her back.

Cheryl Blossom

Main article: Archeryl

Archie agrees to escort Cheryl to Blossom events (almost as a Jason substitute to her family) in exchange for promises of attending a fancy music academy. Although this is his reason, once he gets a harsh glimpse into Cheryl's lonely existence Archie stands up for her and later tells Cheryl that she shouldn't care what people think, that he thinks she's strong. Cheryl, still reeling from her brother's death, seeks solace in a possible romance with Archie and kisses him. He kisses her back, but breaks it off as he's with Valerie.
