Synopsis
Veronica discovers she has a magic mirror. It shows her images of Betty making time with Archie, but when she goes and finds Betty, Archie is never there. After the third time she breaks the mirror.
That's when Archie appears and asks Betty how she thinks they got so lucky avoiding Veronica, and Betty reveals a compact magic mirror of her own.
