Riverdale – Manhunter (3×06)

Published

on

“Manhunter” may be, no, it 100% is the most outrageous episode in Riverdale’s arsenal, but it’s also the best installment to date.

In fact, despite the supernatural elements, unusual storyline and questionable moments, I’d even say it’s the best and most well-thought-out season yet.

Unlike the mystery of the Black Hood that felt scatterbrained, the mystery of Gryffon’s and Gargoyle’s follows a path and includes everyone in town.

And the game is ridiculously fun. Not only is it being referred to as a literal drug — Jughead, you’re an addict — but it’s an allegory for Riverdale with direct tie-in with the parents.

I think getting to know the parents in the past and as they are now is what I’m enjoying the most.

Unfortunately, said parents are being really cryptic on what they know about the game which isn’t helping their kids out in the slightest.

They keep saying they don’t want to rehash the past to protect the children but it’s having an adverse affect because the less they say, the more Betty and company dig into it and try to figure it out on their own.

The flashback Breakfast Club-inspired episode was only the tip of the iceberg it seems.

Alice said Betty’s in too far, but that’s only because Alice keeps lying to her at every turn. She keeps saying the game is so dangerous yet she abandoned Betty the minute the Gargoyle King showed up at their home.

It seems like she’d had more than one off encounter with the Gargoyle King.

Betty Cooper, persistant little thang that she is, has to trick the parents by sending them game invites in order for them to open up.

What could be so bad that they’d rather ignore it than use it to keep their children from repeating the past?

It seems like a better option than chaining your kid to a fridge so that he’ll “detox.” I’m surprised Jug didn’t just pull off the door handle and pursue Joaquin.

I’m all about satanic rituals in the woods and can understand a master and his disciples meeting in a forest to do whatever it is that they do, but that scene with the Gargoyle King in the Cooper household pushed the threshhold a bit.

Am I really to believe that someone would have gotten into their house with that tree costume fitting through the door and left all those markings upstairs?

And there was something about FP coming through a window and just hugging Alice as she freaked out about the GK being in her living room that made me uneasy.

His reaction almost made me think he knew what was happening down there because he plotted it.

If you didn’t catch it, the scene was a nod to the Scream films in which Skeet Ulrich’s character WAS the killer.

Maybe this is the writers’ way of telling us that history is repeating itself here. Do you think FP  is part of all of this?

I would have been convinced it was a dream-sequence had Alice not acknowlegded that Betty wasn’t having one of her episodes again.

But sending her to the Sisters of Quiet Mercy was a cruel decision. What is with these parents sending their children there and thinking it’s in their best interest?

Didn’t Alice learn her lesson the first few times? Why wouldn’t FP stop her?

And what in God’s name is happening at that place? Why are all the kids painting images of the Gargoyle King when this is supposed to be the “safest” place in Riverdale?

IS this a dream? IS Betty tripping? Honestly, what is happening and why am I enjoying it so much?

There are times when Alice comes off as a normal and caring mother, but then there are times like these where she makes irrational decisions and makes me question her sanity.

It’s almost as if she had a split personality; sometimes she’s open and honest with Betty, other times she’s cryptic.

I do think Penelope was telling the truth about not killing Darryl. You know when someone gives you the low-down on which poison they would have used instead they’re probably being sincere.

And I’m willing to bet Alice played a bigger role in all of this then she’s letting on, once again.

By writing in the paper that it was suicide, she squashed all queries and concerns.

But why would she want people to not know the truth?

What are they hiding?

It’s one thing to try to protect the fact that they murdered the principal, but killing anyone who was willing to talk?

That’s twisted.

Who do you think killed Darryl Doyle? Was he really the one who poisoned the chalices? Did he bring the game to Riverdale?

And what was he threatening that they had to silence him for?

Archie said it best, it’s Hiram, it always is.

Obviously, it makes the most sense that Hiram Lodge is the Gargoyle King even though he denies it saying he’s not some nerd.

If the game is supposed to mimic the town, it would only make sense that the Criminal Kingpin is also the Gargoyle King.

It would explain how his reach spreads so far and wide, and also why he’s been able to contorl everyone and make people do insane things to Archie.

There are other signs pointing to Hiram as the ring leader. He knew the Warden back in his highschool days which would give him the access to manipulate him, he’s the only one that really has it out for Archie, he places the blame on everyone else aka all the other “bad” dads, he’s the only one who knows what went down at the lakehouse that terrible night, and most importantly, he made the call to Minetta to “take care” of the witnesses in the mines when Veronica was getting too close to figuring out the truth.

Though I do wonder why he didn’t try harder to prevent Ronnie from getting her hands on the video which proved coercion? If he thought as far as getting rid of the witnesses to cover up loose ends, he should have taken care of everything.

It seems rather unlikely that Hiram wouldn’t be one-step ahead of her there.

Truthfully, I’m surprised it actually worked and Ronnie was able to clear Archie’s name.

Wouldn’t the video be inadmissable because of the way Veronica got it?

And why wouldn’t she bring a USB drive to grab the video instead of sending it by email? Does Riverdale not have USB drives yet?

For a manhunt as extensive as the one they said was happening for Archie, he sure had no problem getting around town.

How did no one notice a redheaded boy in a cap sitting in the corner of a hospital tyring his best to look inconspicious?

And don’t get me started on Archie and his hero complex. He’s learned absolutely nothing from his time in juvie. Instead of letting Veronica handle it as she said he would, Archie rushed to those mines and almost fell for Hiram’s trap yet again.

Stop following your insticts, Archie. They’re clearly what got him into this mess.

It’s so easy for Hiram to manipulate and do whatever he wants to Archie because Archie is beyond predictable.

That’s how Hiram knew the mines would be Archie’s next target; he’s in his mind.

Archie was right about one thing —  there is no future for him in Riverdale, not if Hiram Lodge is around.

Now, Hiram is a problem that the town should rally to take care of. The parents know exactly what he’s capable of yet they sit next to him in meetings and say absolutely nothing.

It’s kind of absurd.

Same goes for Veronica. She knows her father is a diabolical hitman and she still plays his game and calls him “daddy.”

Sometimes, I feel like she’s addicted to the dysfunction.

It was selfish of her to ask Archie to stay and naive for her to think things would be fine now that she cleared his name.

She’s definitely in denial about her fathers capabilities.

Since Archie has been marked with the “sacrifice” symbol, Joaquin warned that death was imminent.

But with Archie hitting the road, I have to wonder if G&G extends past Riverdale.

And where is Archie planning on going? Is Jughead going with him? Is he not even going to stop by Betty’s place to say goodbye? She’s going to need her Serpent King to get out of the SOQM.

What do you think the ultimate point of G&G is anyway? If Hiram really is the GK then it’s his way of controlling folks in the town.

But why did Joaquin die for talking? What’s the point of the masked rituals? Are the gang’s just hoping to ascend to the highest level?

And how is The Farm wrapped up in all of this.

There hasn’t been much about Edgar or Evelyn Evernever since Betty found out that her mother told them all of their deepest and darkest secrets, but that doesn’t mean she hasn’t been pulling strings and plotting from behind the scenes.

Josie experienced her first seizure, similair to the ones Betty and Ethel suffered from.

Every single time, Evelyn has been in the area, focusing on the subject at hand.

Is she doing witchcraft?

How is The Farm connected to G&G and the eerieness that plagues Riverdale?

Sound-off below!

Riverdale – Bizarrodale (3×12)

Published

on

Riverdale Bizarrodale

There is absolutely no better word to describe Riverdale than bizarrodale.

In all honesty, I’m pretty confused as to the purpose of this whole Gargoyle King and/or Gryphons and Gargoyles storyline.

Initially, the storyline seemed promising, but much like the Black Hood, the reveals of the Gargoyle King — there have been two thus far — have been mediocre.

Tall Boy was a fake-out, but the second Gargoyle King ended up being Mason, Moose’s in-the-closet father who had a crush on Tommy?

Seriously. We’ve only seen Mason like two times this whole season.

This means there are iterations of the Gargoyle King to take care of personal business, but the main GK is still to be discovered. Like FP said, it’s like playing whack-a-mole until we finally encounter the real one.

Truthfully, I don’t even care who the real Gargoyle King is because does it even matter?

We’re supposed to believe that Mason wanted to date Tommy, went to the Sisters of Quiet Mercy for gay conversion therapy, thought the GK made him straight again only to express jealousy upon finding out that his son, a gay man, was dating Tommy’s gay son?

It’s a mouthful, I know.

Two things immediately stick out to me that make me question the validity of this story. For starters, when did the Sisters start having male students? Second off, if Mason met the Gargoyle King, it stands to reason that Fizzle Rocks were definitely around back then.

And, on top of that, we’re supposed to believe Mason was crafty enough to reunite the Midnight Club for another rendezvous?

I’m not buying it. I think this storyline was slapped together and the last minute and it’s falling apart in fact-checking.

After all that Kevin has been through, can’t he just find a significant other that can openly be with him without dying or almost being killed by his own dad?

Though, I will admit the scene where all the parents realized the Ascension Night was just a facade to target their children was really brilliant.

A lot of people are having sex in Riverdale, you guys. These teen hormones are outrageous. I wonder what’s in the water in Riverdale aside from Fizzle Rocks runoff.

Cheryl had a few questionable moments this week as she purposefully outed Moose thinking she was doing the right thing.

I’m really happy that the writers immediately addressed that Cheryl hijacking his coming out was not okay.

It’s a deeply personal decision and definitely not one someone should be pressured into.

Riverdale also did a good job at addressing the dangers of being outed to parents that aren’t fully supportive.

Cheryl of all people should know what it’s like dealing with a parent who doesn’t support her sexuality. It was a bit strange after Penelope tried to sabotage her entrance interview into college that Cheryl would still think outing someone would be a good idea.

Or that Toni would suggest that Cheryl knows nothing about dealing with unsupportive family members.

By the end of the episode, Cheryl had successfully blackmailed her mother, won her way back into the college of her choice, and even scored Toni an interview.

Yes, queens.

And as a make good, she even formed a new gang for Toni called the Pretty Poison.

I don’t know if Riverdale really needs any more gangs, but it can’t hurt to have a girl gang around, can it?

Also, how hilarious is it that Penelope believes Cheryl is an abomination but doesn’t think there’s anything wrong with owning a brothel?

There was a significant focus on secondary characters which was appreciated since audiences are always complaining that Kevin and Josie don’t get nearly enough screentime.

Josie’s music aspirations were at the forefront as she prepared for an audition at Julliard.

Archie found Josie crying about how she wouldn’t be able to get to the audition because Sweet Pea wouldn’t take her since they officially broke up.

I knew they hooked up at that one summer party, but who knew they were actually together?

Or that Sweet Pea was so sensitive and couldn’t do this whole back and forth thing with Josie? The moment seemed so ill-fitting and was probably only included to pair Josie with Archie with irritates me. Sweet Pea is above being a plot device.

Archie, owing Josie a favor after she helped sober him up and get him on the right track, offered to give her a ride.

Sadly, Josie’s pipes didn’t make the cut, but they were good enough to jam out with Archie.

That eventually led to a kiss which we all knew was coming and bam — Riverdale’s newest couple is here.

Or is it? Ashley Murray (who plays Josie) just signed onto The CW’s new Riverdale spin-off, Katy Keene. Does that mean her romance with Archie is short-lived?

I’ve expressed my concerns about Archie corrupting sweet little Josie, but now I’m more terrified of how Veronica will react.

Sure, she’s doing her thing with Reggie, but will she be okay with her ex and her friend hooking up?

In reality, I think Ronnie has bigger fish to fry than who Archie’s sleeping with as she unintentionally got involved in her family business.

After burning the Fizzle Rocks factory, Hermione forced Ronnie and Reggie to pay back all the money.

For someone who is loaded, Veronica had a really difficult time coming up with the cash. I don’t know if it’s because she’s with Reggie, but recently, her plans just haven’t made all that much sense.

How did they not consider that the money taken from a bank would be doused in exploding ink? Or that the security guard would have a gun? Amateurs.

Though their Bonnie & Clyde dynamic is a welcome change from her Romeo & Juliet relationship with Archie caused by her father.

And the dangerous kingpin? None other than Mama Jughead.

Yep, it seems Gladys is back in town and she just singlehandedly stole the game from everyone.

The Lodges are indebted to her, Veronica and Reggie are working for her, FP is Sheriff and Jughead has control of the Serpents.

And the most dangerous aspect is that FP and Jughead don’t expect a thing.

I am honestly so disappointed that Jelly Bean is playing her father and brother like that.

I also cannot wait until Gladys and Alice finally come face-to-face.

And speaking of Alice, will we ever find out what’s going on with The Farm? The storyline seems to be abandoned unless they have something to do with the game and the Gargoyle King.

Turning it over to you, Riverdale Cravers.

Are Josie and Archie going to be serious? What does Gladys want from Riverdale? Are Hermione and Hiram still aligned? How will Kevin mend his broken heart?

Oh, and congrats Sierra and Tommy. Those two lovebirds finally tied the knot, even if it did piss off half the town!

Riverdale – The Red Dahlia (3×11)

Published

on

Riverdale Red Dahlia

Riverdale is a wicked crime town, and no one is innocent. Not Betty, not Jughead, not Archie, and definitely not Veronica.

“The Red Dahlia,” a term Betty used on Penelope in this episode makes the point that the parents are all to blame for the dysfunction and murder.

Though the plots have become twisted and tangled that it may sometimes become a little difficult to follow along, the point being drive home is that Hermione and Penelope are working together to take over Hiram Lodge’s empire.

Penelope was revealed as not only Clifford’s killer but Daryl and Claudius’ as well. Her storyline is very straightforward — she takes out the bad men.

Clifford was responsible for Jason’s death while Claudius was responsible for poisoning Sweetwater River thus leading to seizures in the high school.

Now, how does Hermione play into all of this?

Her web of lies is a bit more complex.

As we know, Riverdale writers love playing with the structure of an episode and Jughead’s ‘who-dun-it’ film noir vibe gave this town even more, er, charm.

Jughead doesn’t strike me as the type of guy eager to find Hiram Lodge’s shooter, however, when Veronica asks sweetly, his crime-solving and investigative reporter senses began tingling and it was an offer he couldn’t pass up.

Much like the rest of us, Veronica assumed her mother was responsible for shooting her father.

And she was technically wrong.

While Hermione didn’t do the crime, she did place the order.

FP Jones confessed to killing Hermione in exchange for the Sherriff’s position.

Now, admittedly, this wasn’t much of a surprise. Much of the town has a bone to pick with Hiram, but there are two dads in particular that really want revenge for how he’s treated their sons — Fred and FP.

Fred may have threated Hiram in the last episode, but he doesn’t have the guts to carry something like that out.

But FP? Yeah, that dude has it in him.

FP believed the Sheriff position would ensure his safety is Hermione tried to double-cross him, which she definitely attempted, but Jughead was one step ahead of them all.

After meeting with Hermione, he didn’t necessarily trust her and her attempts at steering Juggy in a different direction to Hiram’s mistress didn’t absolve her of anything.

Jughead had his Serpent’s follow her and what they found out had the ability to shake Riverdale to its core: Sheriff Minetta, previously believed to have been beheaded by the Man in Black, was as alive as ever and having an affair with Hermione.

What’s worse? Hermione wanted him to go finish off her husband with a cop’s gun so she could pin the blame on FP.

Look, I underestimated Hermione — that lady is wicked.

Minetta isn’t the first person to turn up alive in Riverdale after believing to be dead, however.

Tallboy resurrected for a bit as the Gargoyle King only to end up dead again this time at the hands of the Sweet Pea and Fangs.

Jughead and FP were presented with the opportunity to frame someone that’s already dead with the attempted attack on Hiram, which evidently angered Madam Mayor.

Another hiccup in Hermione’s plan? Archie Andrews.

Archie’s hatred for the Man in Black actually ended up saving his life which is something neither she, nor we, nor he (Archie) expected.

Archie thought that killing Hiram would somehow put an end to his spiraling. I appreciate the effort, but man Archie, get it together.

Archie was never going to go through with killing Hiram, but at the very least the moment showed us that this isn’t the optimistic and doe-eyed man we met in the first season.

He’s been through a lot and that’s changed him.

However, while sneaking into Hiram’s room in a completely deserted hospital room (seriously, after they mentioned jobs Hiram rarely go unfinished, you’d think the hospital at least be staffed) he botches Minetta’s plans to off Hiram as a favor to Hermione.

Archie is back on the hero train, y’all!

Veronica was grateful, but she still had a lot to take care of.

She was basically upkeeping the family’s mafia status to prevent the vultures from taking over.

Thankfully, she had Smithers and Reggie to help her with it, and you have to admit there’s something intriguing about Reggie posing as the Man in Black. Is this a possible foreshadowing for what’s to come with Ronnie’s relationship?

The main course constituted of dealing with the Fizzle Rocks factory situation.

Both the prison and the Maple Club were pumping out the drugs, which Hermione claimed to know nothing about.

She told Veronica that the quarantine was a smokescreen to cleanly and swiftly dismantle production, however, Hiram lied to her and consolidated everything into the prison.

Hermione is interested in selling the factory off and getting a good chunk of change, but that doesn’t eliminate the problem — drugs would still continue to be pumped out into Riverdale.

Veronica has a much better idea of just destroying the drugs and the factory altogether. It’s a bold choice as it does basically burn all of Hiram’s investments, not to mention screws out a buyer. I wonder how Hiram will react once he finds out.

Outing Tallboy as the Gargoyle King was pretty lame, but I’m wondering if it was a red herring and Hermione is the real master manipulator.

After Minetta failed to kill Hiram and her plans were thwarted by Archie, FP and Jughead, Hermione ruthlessly had to cut looses ends and shot Minetta point-blank.

Who knew she had it in her?

Kelly Ripa’s appearance as Hiram’s mistress was underwhelming.

Her acting wasn’t good at all, and during her scene with Jughead, I couldn’t concentrate on anything but that.

But also adding her into the narrative simply to explain that she faked the water reports so that Hiram could continue operating his drug factory was lame.

Will see more of her?

Penelope may have inadvertently confessed to being a killer, although serial killer is pushing it, Betty isn’t any better.

In fact, lecturing Penelope was very hypocritical of her since she basically sold out Chic to the Black Hood.

And Penelope made sure to let her know if she turned her in, she would turn Betty in.

I still don’t understand the point of Hal and Betty’s meetings unless they are showing us that Betty’s beginning to understand why people become deranged in crime town.

In the end, everyone was at a stalemate.

Penelope made sure Betty wouldn’t turn her in because if she did, she’d turn Betty in for Chic’s death.

Hermione confessed to everything, but Jughead couldn’t report her because she promised to take his father down with him.

And Archie and Hiram may have made up, but where do they go from here?

Hiram was thankful, obviously, and Archie was so stunned by his own actions, he agreed to a truce.

Do I really think that Hiram would just have a change of heart? He searched near and far to get his hands on Archie so it seems unlikely that he’d just let it all go.

The only way Hiram would let his vendetta go is if he’s benefitting from it in some way.

What has Archie agreed to now?

Archie needs a sense of direction because as it stands, he himself isn’t even sure if he loves or loathes Hiram.

Maybe Josie’s interest in him and his excitement to return to “jamming” out will bring back the old Archie?

If Josie is about to be Archie’s new love interest, I’ll stan it as long as it gives her more free time.

However, she’s too sweet and innocent to corrupt so please don’t go that route!

Are we at the end of Hiram Lodge?

What happens now that Hermione has taken the reigns? And where the hell are those weirdos from The Farm?

Riverdale – The Stranger (3×10)

Riverdale "Chapter Forty-Five: The Stranger

Hiram Lodge is down. Claudius Blossom is dead. And FP Jones is the new Sheriff in town.

In other words, Riverdale just flipped the script.

It’s about time Hiram’s reign ended, and it was so satisfying that it happened while he was boasting about how he’s “always one step ahead of the game.”

Given the way Hiram was injured — a bow and arrow — my money was on Cheryl Blossom delivering the possibly fatal (oh, who are we kidding? It couldn’t be that easy!) blow.

Cheryl has a motive as Hiram Lodge was technically the reason she and Toni were kicked out of the Southside Serpents.

However, what transpired shortly after Hiram’s hospitalization made me wonder that maybe it was the quietest Lodge of them all?

Of course, I’m referring to Hermione. She’s been difficult to figure out. At times, it seems like she’s disgusted with her husband, other times it seems like she supports him, but when Ronnie questions her, she always tells her daughter that she “has no other choice.”

She’s doing it for the family.

And there’s her motive.

Shortly before the bow pierced Hiram through the heart, he ordered Hermione to select Claudius Blossom as the Sheriff of Riverdale.

When she tried to object, he told her she didn’t have much of a choice. It was threatening and menacing even though Hiram’s disposition never changed.

It’s the first time we’ve ever outwardly seen Hiram act this way towards his wife, but I’m betting it isn’t the first time it’s happened. 

We know that his objective has been to put key players in high-power positions around Riverdale to ensure he gets what he wants. Hermione’s Mayoral position seems to be his “get out of jail free” card. 

Aside from the motive to protect herself and her family, Hermione also suspiciously connected with FP Jones shortly after Hiram’s accident telling him, “it’s time” before handing over the Sheriff’s torch to him.

Now, it’s a major leap for a man who spent his whole life leading the Serpent’s — and if anyone can handle this job, it’s FP — but it’s not necessarily a step-up when you think about the history of Sheriffs in Riverdale.

Either they are pushed out of office or they end up dead. Claudius Blossom didn’t last a full day as Sheriff before being jailed and murdered.

Speaking of, it seems Riverdale didn’t succeed in finding a purpose for Claudius. Bringing him back as the twin brother of Clifford and Cheryl’s uncle seemed like it was done more for shock value. There was no actual plan for Claudius, he was simply utilized into whatever storyline the writers saw fit until he died being Hiram’s henchman.

Archie’s return to Riverdale couldn’t be more perfectly timed.

Not only did Archie slay Hiram Lodge in a state of hallucinations, but he also returned just as someone else took him out temporarily.

However, the Archie that returned to Riverdale wasn’t the same music-loving, naive kid anymore. He seemed more like a stranger, even to himself, and everyone was noticing. 

His return to Riverdale probably wasn’t what he was expecting.

For starters, he was way behind on the SATs, which is almost comical to think about given everything he’s been through.

Watching him study with Betty to pass the test while everyone else — Ronnie, Jughead — took it seriously was such a normal moment for this series, it felt out of place.

When the hell did anyone else have time to study in between fighting the Black Hood, the Gargoyle King, and having their school threatened with a shutdown on a daily basis?

In addition to his education hanging in the balance, Archie’s relationship with Ronnie was rocky at best.

She tried to welcome him back with open arms, pushing aside whatever happened with Reggie, to be there for her man, however, Archie couldn’t appreciate a party thrown for him when he just wrestled a bear and lived out in a cabin in Canada to avoid her father. 

There’s no going back from that. His PTSD isn’t the least bit surprising. 

Ronnie pulled the trigger on the relationship after adding insult to injury by questioning if Archie had anything to do with her father’s accident.

Seriously, would she really be surprised if he did?

Instead of being there for his since she’s predominantly the reason he’s in this damn mess in the first place, she blamed Archie and then chose Reggie.

Archie was way too understanding in this scene. He gave up everything for her, went through hell and back, and became a target of Hiram’s all so she could just move on with his buddy?

Reggie, you better know what you’re getting into.

Reggie confronted Archie wondering “what the hell was wrong with him,” but good luck coming out of a relationship unscathed by Hiram, the devil incarnate.

I’m sad to see the demise of one of my favorite couples, but it will be interesting to see life post Varchie in Riverdale. What does that look like? Do they remain cordial?

If we didn’t have enough evil looming in Riverdale, Hal Cooper found his way back into the narrative after Betty’s mother gave all of her college money away to The Farm.

Ugh, the damn Farm is getting on my nerves.

What’s worse is that Betty’s money paid for The Farm to take up residency at the SOQM. Like that place needs another cult!

There should be a law that anyone involved in a cult shouldn’t be able to make decisions about their children’s money.

How twisted is it that Betty was so disgusted with her mother, she found comfort in her murder-craving father.

She attempted to have a normal conversation with him, ignoring the fact that he almost killed her and her mother just a few months ago. 

Hey, at least Hal was all for signing the paperwork to help Betty out.

Both Hal and Tall Boy were red herrings when it came to unmasking the Gargoyle King, which was super frustrating.

Tall Boy’s involvement was a bit more surprising since we assumed he was dead, but he was obviously just doing the dirty work for someone higher up on the food chain.

Tall Boy seems to have more lives than a cat on this series, however, this time, I’m pretty sure Fangs and Sweet Pea really did kill him.

This would have been problematic if the new Sheriff wasn’t also the former gang leader who would undoubtedly help them cover this up.

Also, you have to wonder what putting a Gang leader as a sheriff will do to the town? At least he won’t be easily manipulated. 

Do you think Hermione has bigger plans to phase out Hiram?

Will Jughead accept his father’s new position?

What is happening over at The Farm?

Is Hiram actually dead?
