In the fourth episode of Season 1, Kevin and Joaquin were making out in a back alley during the very first time they met.
I've seen that Casey was filming at the place they use for filming the Whyte Wyrm (Serpent bar) scenes, during one of the last weeks of filming Season 2. I've also heard that the crew was filming a scene in the back alley, but fans couldn't see it.
So, a repeat of this in the finale episode?

These are also possible hints at a potential Joavin reunion:
Brian E. Paterson (one of the Riverdale writers) said that Kevin will find his someone, but he can't comment about Joaquin.
Within the show:
"This is riveting. I can't breathe." - A saying between same-sex couples.
Kevin said this first; he said it while he and Joaquin were together.
And, not to mention one more thing these two couples have in common: Southside Serpent + Northsider
I was really hoping for a Joavin reunion by the end of this season, but now I'm so bummed that this didn't happen.
"Let's just say there is some love in the air." -- Kevin and Moose hook up in the men's restroom at school, literally over poor Midge's dead body.
I honestly got the impression that, during this scene, Kevin was thinking to himself, "Yay... I can bang Moose now! Thanks Midge for getting killed so conveniently!" 🙄
I'm having mixed feelings about Kevin right now.
Midge died recently, and I refuse to root for this romance happening so soon behind the back of this murder victim, especially after what happened between Moose, Kevin and Midge backstage just before Midge got killed by the Black Hood on stage in the "Carrie: The Musical" episode.
Kevin deserves a proper love interest, and I mean he deserves someone who purely cares for him and is always willing to give him lots of love. He definitely belongs with Joaquin. Joaquin has purely cared for Kevin, and he was always comfortable being very romantic and affectionate with him in public as he's openly gay too.
Moose is still heartbroken over Midge, and it seems as if Kevin is just a rebound for him. Besides, he's still closeted and too ashamed to be affectionate with a guy in public.
I swear to God, they better bring Joaquin back for Season 3, or else I won't watch Season 3. It doesn't make sense that Joaquin would be back for only one scene before the end of Season 2, considering the fact that he didn't take Fangs to San Junipero. (Joaquin returned to town to rescue Fangs from the Northsiders wrongly accusing him of Midge's murder and take him to San Junipero, but Fangs suddenly got shot in the stomach right after getting out of jail and was taken to the hospital. Midge's mom shot Fangs because she thought he was the one who killed her daughter. Fangs survived the gunshot wound and has been recovering well. Fangs is still in town, though Joaquin's whereabouts are currently unknown.)
Well, there may be a love triangle between Kevin, Moose and Joaquin in the next season. I know that, during a recent Riverdish podcast session, Casey sounded as if he isn't sure who Kevin ends up with, even though he's been fully aware of that restroom scene with Kevin and Moose in the finale episode of Season 2. This makes sense if he knows that Joaquin will be in Season 3 and there's going to be a love triangle.
I had seen that a few articles had said that Kevin and Joaquin's relationship would develop in Season 2. But, I also had seen that many other sources had said that Kevin was going to get a new love interest in Season 2.
For almost the entire season, Kevin was alone, and he didn't even have a ton of screentime.
This was the only scene with Joaquin in this season; it occurred just two episodes before the season finale:
