While we're not sure what it is going to be, we do know that Archie is finally turning the El Royale gym into a community centre, Veronica lands herself in the centre of a scandal that has something to do with her dad, Betty’s mum Alice Cooper is still MIA and Jughead leaves Riverdale and starts at a new prep school.
Then there's the scene with Betty wearing a beret and loading a gun, which has us shook.
But the most important storyline is the one that happens in the first episode, when we see Archie find out that his dad has passed away. After Luke Perry, who played Archie’s dad Fred Andrews, tragically died from a stroke earlier this year, he needed to be written out of the series and we finally see how that plays out.
“Probably the most important episode of #Riverdale we’ll do this year, if not ever,” wrote showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa in a tweet about the episode, which features a guest appearance by Shannon Doherty. “A tribute to our fallen friend. Thankful for this opportunity to honor Luke & Fred.”
