A minor character from the comics, Nick St. Clair did indeed date Veronica Lodge in the source material; albeit only briefly.

Speaking to EW, series executive producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa teased that Nick St. Clair might not be as sweet as he'll appear from the get-go.

According to Riverdale EP Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, "Nick is an old classmate of Veronica's from NY, and despite his parent-pleasing veneer, he is a wolf in sheep's clothing: a hard-partying Lothario with dark desires and an unchecked sense of privilege. His arrival in Riverdale will threaten Archie's relationship with Veronica, and may even put some of our characters at risk".

"A new love-triangle in #Riverdale? Welcome to town, Nick St. Clair!" tweeted the showrunner. However, according to a new report, another fan-favorite couple - Archie and Veronica - are going to be facing some new complications, in the form of Veronica's former flame from NY.

When we first met Veronica in season 1, she was very up front about the fact that she'd done some things in the past she wasn't proud of.

Will Nick's appearance have her reverting to her old ways?

Returning October 11 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW, Riverdale stars K.J. Apa as Archie Andrews, Lili Reinhart as Betty Cooper, Camila Mendes as Veronica Lodge, Cole Sprouse as Jughead Jones, Madelaine Petsch as Cheryl Blossom, Ashleigh Murray as Josie McCoy and Casey Cott as Kevin Keller.
