Synopsis for "The Archies"Edit

Archie dreams of being in a rock band, but doesn't know anyone who'd want to join. Jughead takes him to The Jackpot, a club run by his cousin, Bingo Wilson. Archie accidentally books a gig there despite not having a band. Jughead agrees to join him, and they hold auditions for additional members. After a montage of failures, Betty and Veronica show up and join. Archie becomes obsessed with making the band sound perfect, leading the others to quit in protest. They join Reggie's band, playing on the night Archie was booked for; Archie, out of spite, decides to play solo. Betty, Veronica, and Jughead quickly realize Reggie was worse than Archie; Archie realizes that playing music is no fun by himself. The night of the gig, he apologizes to him former bandmates; his bandmates talk to the announcer, so before Archie goes on, she announces the act as "The Archies". The others have decided to rejoin his group; Reggie joins them, no longer having his own band. Their performance isn't perfect, but Archie loves it anyway.
