Riverdale is one town where I’d avoid Halloween like the plague.
It’s bad enough that creepy and terrible things happen there on a daily basis, but a day dedicated to spookiness brings out the worst in the mysterious town.
Some of the storylines, like Veronica’s, were done purely for entertainment value.
There may have been more to the story when it came to her getting attacked by a serial killer while closing up shop at Pops, but since she lit the guy on fire, it’s unlikely that he’ll have a bigger impact on the storyline.
Don’t think for a second that I missed that the man escaped from the same institution, Shady Grove Treatment Center, that Polly’s currently in.
Cheryl’s obsession with Jay Jay took on a life of its own after she tried to fight Toni against burying him.
Toni figured it was better to just have a mummified corpse sitting around Thistlehouse than to continue getting haunted by a doll, who Nana claims is Cheryl and Jason’s triplet whom Cheryl ate in the womb.
But after retrieving Jason, Julian kept popping up and by that time even Cheryl was convinced that Thistlehouse was being haunted.
I wonder where this triplet storyline will go or if, like Veronica’s story, it was used solely as a Halloween plot.
Toni must really love Cheryl to stick around through all this craziness.
If a mummified corpse brother and a vindictive dead brother don’t scare her away, nothing will.
Unsurprisingly, the most popular costumes in Riverdale for the Halloween season drew inspiration from the Gargoyle King and the Black Hood.
As you’d imagine, that wasn’t so great for Betty’s PTSD.
And neither was receiving calls from someone claiming to be the Black Hood. I wouldn’t put it past Riverdale to somehow bring Hal back from the dead, but Charles swung by the house and offered up another explanation: the comments were coming from inside Shady Grove Treatment Center, which meant it was likely Polly playing a sick joke on her sister.
However, when Betty called her sister, Polly didn’t seem to know what she was talking about.
Seeing how suspicious Charles is — he definitely has some nefarious motivations if he’s bugged Betty’s phone — I’d say it was probably his twisted joke.
Is he being serious about having her come on-board for the junior FBI program? Is that even a real thing?
Archie spent his Halloween fighting crime like the superhero he was channeling.
I’ll never complain about Archie in tights.
Spending the night protecting the neighborhood kids from Dodger and his gang gave Archie the inspiration to become Riverdale’s vigilante.
Yep, we’re on our way to having a full-blown crossover with Arrowverse.
Jughead had the worst Halloween of them all after he was drugged by one of the students in his writing club (I knew that was going to happen the moment she handed him that coffee), and buried alive in a coffin as a part of some twisted initiation.
My palms were sweating profusely watching all of his scenes. I’m pretty sure that tops everyone’s “biggest fears” list.
There’s no way in hell the professor wasn’t in on that otherwise, he would have been fuming.
Though while Jughead may have survived this vanishing, it’s not looking too good for him in the future.
A flash-forward revealed FP Jones and Betty at the morgue identifying Jughead’s body.
As yes, a quick glance at the body reveals our author friend meets a grim fate soon probably because of the shadiness that engulfs Stonewall Prep.
I wish he’d never gone to that school.
Usually, it’s fun to see a mystery unfold on Riverdale, but it’s not going to be as exciting when we know the outcome is the loss of our beloved Jug.
There’s also a new mystery plaguing Riverdale which involves everyone receiving strange VHS cassette tapes with hours of footage of their house recorded on them.
Who is going through all this trouble to “stalk” people in town? And why?
- Kevin is a straight-up snitch.
- There’s something so very strange about Principal Honey. He’s exploiting Kevin’s weakness while making an enemy of Reggie and Cheryl.
- Alice and FP are living together now, which was haste development, but it seems like they’re all getting along just fine, especially Betty and Jellybean.
- Riverdale is slowly exposing its fanbase to Katy Keene. This is the first time Veronica has mentioned her gal pal in New York, but maybe this means that Josie won’t be the only one crossing over to the spinoff.
- Uber exists in Riverdale. Shocking.
- Poor Polly is going to need a lot of therapy. Did you hear how excited she got when she thought Edgar reached out to her? Poor girl.
- Moose vanished from Stonewall Prep. While the teacher said it was an urban legend and most of the victims simply dropped out of school, it doesn’t seem like the case with Jughead’s roommate. What happened to Moose?
Did you enjoy the Halloween episode of Riverdale?
For a series that thrives on thrills, a Halloween episode was overdue.
Do you think Jughead is going to die?
‘Riverdale’ Musical Episode Delayed, CW Issues Schedule Change with #Crossover Reruns
Coronavirus is effecting the upcoming schedule on The CW.
And Riverdale fans might not be pleased because the musical episode has been postponed as the series goes on an indefinite hiatus.
The teen drama has been on a break since March 11 and was set to return with a musical episode focusing on Hedwig and the Angry Inch on April 8.
Unfortunately, that’s not happening.
A schedule update for the first week of April (April 6th) reveals that the network will air a re-rerun of its DC’s crossover “Crisis on Infinite Earths” instead of the episode “Wicked Little Town.”
The 5-part crossover which brought together The CW’s biggest superheroes into one 5-hours episode in 2019 and the beginning of 2020 is filling a few voids in the schedule including Sunday’s time-block of Supergirl and Batwoman. It’s also stepping in to fill Thursday’s timeslot, which usually went to Legacies. The series is set to air a premature season finale on March 26 after production shuttered due to the outbreak and they couldn’t finish filming the season.
Sadly, and I know this isn’t what anyone wants to hear, The CW did not reveal when Riverdale would return for new episodes.
And if I’m being honest (again not what you want to hear), the series stopped on an episode that could very well serve as the season 4 finale. “Rumors of My Death Have Been Greatly Exaggerated” explained everything about Jughead’s mysterious death sufficiently.
While fans were looking forward to the annual musical episode, it can very well be saved till the next season if worse comes to worse.
Riverdale was forced to shutter production this season after a member of the crew tested positive for coronavirus. All shows followed suit shortly after.

No Worries, KJ Apa Will Star As Archie on ‘Riverdale’ For At Least 3 More Years
Riverdale has at least three more seasons in its tank.
How do we know? Because KJ Apa said so in a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times while promoting his Christian film, I Still Believe.
The actor, who plays our beloved Archie on The CW teen drama, revealed he signed a multi-year deal to star on the series.
While he didn’t get into the nitty-gritty of his contract, he explained that he’ll be on the series for at least the next three years.
And thus, that means we’ll get at least three more seasons.
The series was already renewed for a fifth season in January, but this new intel means we can rest-assured the series will likely continue on until season 7.
And if you’re a fan of the show, set in the murder capital of the world, you know that so much can happen in the span of three years.
Following season 4, the teens including Apa’s Archie and his besties Jughead Jones (Cole Sprouse), Betty Cooper (Lili Reinahrt), and Veronica Lodge (Camila Mendes) will graduate Riverdale High and go to college.
It’s unclear how the dynamic will change the series, but maybe it’ll give the show a more adult-vibe.
Currently, production on the remainder of the series has been postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak.
5 Ways ‘Riverdale’ Can Explain FP Jones’ Exit
When Riverdale announced Skeet Ulrich’s exit following season 4, the fandom began to worry.
Ulrich plays FP Jones, the father of Jughead Jones, a former Serpent gang leader who has managed to turn his life around, become a Sheriff, and snag the love of his life.
He’s become an instrumental part of the series as he helps Jughead and his friends navigate normalcy in the fictitious murderous town.
At first, fans thought FP’s exit might confirm Jughead’s death, however, now that we know Jughead survived staged “perfect murder” with his father’s help, it’s unclear how the show will tackle the departure.
We have some thoughts about how Riverdale can explain the exit of one of the show’s finest dads:
1.Kids go off to college
In the “most obvious” lane, the kids go off to college and the parents are no longer a focal point of the series. Jughead and his buds are currently in their senior year and will be going to college in just a few months, pending they actually graduate.
Expectedly, the role of the parents will dwindle as the teens leave town and begin their “adult” lives. If this is the avenue they take, Riverdale might not even have to explain FP’s exit because he’ll simply still be there just not as frequently as when Jughead was living at home. And if Ulrich agrees to some guest appearances, they can very easily break him out of his contract while keeping the character and his relationship with his son in tact.
2. New Job Opportunity
After Jughead’s death, FP spiraled slightly (despite being in on the whole thing) and it led to a confrontation with Hiram Lodge. Hiram suggested that maybe FP was too close to the case, and FP straight up resigned as Sheriff.
With nothing tying him to this town any longer and Jughead gearing up to fly the coop, FP might look for job opportunities in other towns. FP deserves happiness and a fulfilling career, so we’re on board with this 100%.
3. Living It Up with Alice
Much like the teens of Riverdale, the parents have lived a life that could only be described as small-town hell. They were involved with the Gargoyle King since they were teenagers, Alice’s husband turned out to be the Black Hood, they’ve endured so much mayhem and suffering, and the one ray of hope has been that Alice and FP have found their way back to each other and allowed their romance to blossom.
If anyone deserves a vacation, possibly even a permanent vacation, it’s these two love-birds. They need to leave Riverdale and never look back as they ride off into the sunset together.
4. Fed Up with Riverdale
For all the reasons listed above, FP might just be done putting up with Riverdale’s insanity. It wouldn’t be surprising if he was just fed up and done with Riverdale and using this opportunity now that his son is off to college and he doesn’t have a job to pursue a better life somewhere, anywhere else.
I hate to say this, but if Ulrich never wants to return to Riverdale, there is a permanent solution. It would break fans’ hearts, but they don’t call it the murder capital of the world for nothing, right?
Turning it over to you, Cravers.
How do you think that Riverdale will write off FP? Will his exit be permanent?
