‘Riverdale’ Season 5: What Every Character Is Up to After the Seven-Year Time Jump

Published

Riverdale is embracing a seven-year time jump on Season 1 Episode 4 titled “Purgatory.”

The move is not only exciting for fans of The CW drama but also for the cast as it allows them to leave high school behind (and the Riverdale as we know it) and play with some more mature storylines for their characters.

Of course, fans have spent much of the hiatus wondering what this means for their favorite characters. Who will they be seven years from now? Where will their journeys take them?

While a lot may still be unknown, here’s what was revealed in the upcoming trailer:

Archie Andrews

KJ Apa revealed the time jump gives the show a chance to “freshen up the characters,” according to TV Line. 

In fact, he revealed a lot more than he probably should have about the jump forward, which is great for us! 

Apa explained that after graduation, all of the characters went their separate ways. Archie enlisted in the Army and upon returning back home several years later, learned that Hiram Lodge has turned Riverdale into a bit of a ghost town. Leave it to Archie to leave town and return only to reignite his feud with Hiram. 

Archie calls in reinforcements — aka he brings the gang back together — to essentially save Riverdale.

“They talk about how they can revive the town again. Archie very much takes the lead on this. He came back and saw Riverdale turning to s–t pretty much, and he’s like, ‘There’s no way I’m going to let this happen.’ So he wrangles the whole team in, and they figure out ways to revive the town, and the best way to do that is through Riverdale High,” he explained.

After enlisting in the army following graduation, the “Purgatory” trailer reveals that Archie had been in a war. And it seems as though he may have amnesia? That or the idea of home just feels foreign to him.Riverdale Brave New World

Betty Cooper

After high school, Betty attended Yale University. It doesn’t seem like she and Jughead stayed together.

In season 4, Betty expressed interest in joining the FBI, and even after learning that Charles was a serial killer, she pursued that career path. 

According to the teaser, she was an FBI agent who suffered “severe trauma.”

Jughead Jones

Since Jughead’s escapades at Stonewall Prep, his chances of getting into Yale were shot, so he went to the University of Iowa instead.

He became a published writer, but the teaser show’s him going just a bit mad.

Veronica Lodge

Veronica is a married woman in the time jump. Based on Riverdale Season 4, we know she was going to attend Barnard College in New York City, where she likely meets Chad Gekko, a Wall Street banker. But while that sounds super impressive and like the kind of guy Hiram Lodge would approve of, he’s not actually a great husband to Ronnie. He’s described as a “controlling and jealous alpha male.” 

“Chad is threatened by Veronica’s life in Riverdale, especially her friendship with Archie,” the official description adds.

So, is it safe to say that Ronnie and Archie will get back together when she returns to Riverdale?

Cheryl Blossom and Toni Topaz

It’s not clear what happens between the Queen B’s of Riverdale High, but we do know that the writers have written in Vanessa Morgan’s real-life pregnancy into the storyline. Morgan made the reveal on her Instagram account shortly after wrapping up production and going on maternity leave.

In the graduation episode, Cheryl broke up with Toni in order to stay in Riverdale and run her family’s maple syrup business while rehabilitating the Blossom name. 

Meanwhile, Toni was on her way to attend Highsmith College. 

Did they reunite somewhere down the line? Is a #Choni baby on the way? Or did the duo go their separate ways and Toni is pregnant with someone else’s child? Since they are a fan-favorite ship, let’s hope they are one of the high school sweethearts that last!

Kevin Keller

We’ve actually seen Kevin five years in the future when he appeared on the short-lived spinoff, Katy Keene. When he visited Josie in New York on Katy Keene Season 1 Episode 10, we found out that Kevin was a drama teacher at Riverdale High, but he wasn’t entirely happy with his decision. There was definitely a ton of resentment towards the murderous town. 

Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa also gave fans a glimpse at the filming of the upcoming season on Instagram and revealed that flash-forward Kevin got “hella swole.”

Batwoman Review – Can Ryan Wilder’s Kryptonite Infection Be Cured? (2×06)

Published

on

Batwoman Review Do Not Resuscitate Season 2 Episode 6

On Batwoman Season 2 Episode 6, Ryan Wilder could no longer hide the fact that her kryptonite wound was slowly killing her. 

Talk about a painful death. 

And despite all of it, she never let the people of Gotham, or her Bat team, down. As Luke pointed out, if that isn’t a hero, I don’t know what is. 

Luke felt pretty terrible about the fact that he was the reason that Ryan kept her injury on the down-low and suffered in silence, but the moment also made him realize just how dedicated Ryan actually is to being Batwoman. She’s taking this seriously even if there’s a chance it’s only a temporary gig. 

Of course, with no actual cure for kryptonite, this makes the hunt for the Dessert Rose that much more pressing. 

Everyone wants a piece of Coryana’s miracle cure. And based on how they’re all behaving, I’m not surprised Safiyah has kept the location of the island under wraps. 

Just imagine if it got into the wrong hands… say the rogue doctors at Hamilton Dynamics that stole the map from the Crows because they want to replicate it and get rid of the diseases. And while there’s nothing wrong with trying to find a cure for virtually every disease (although, I’m sure the pharmaceutical industry wouldn’t be pleased, unless the idea is to charge a high premium for the drug once it’s available), the approach was quite problematic.

He had no problem testing on patients as if they were lab rats and didn’t care how many of them died. He then sent Aaron, an unhinged patient with spontaneous rage issues, to kidnap Mary and Jacob Kane in order to get information, and then he and his men ambushed the Crows and stole the map from them!

Here’s my issue with that whole scene – after managing to get the map from two of Gotham’s most violent criminals, Ocean and Alice (without backup, might I add), Sophie somehow thought it was a good idea to bring it with her to a hostage situation.

Sure, she wanted to save Mary and Jacob, but how would anyone know if she swapped it with a fake?

What a fail on her part.

Despite Batwoman’s disdain for Sophie (whom she hilariously refers to as “Crow-phie”), she couldn’t gamble with her life and handed over the map.

That means Batwoman wants the Dessert Rose to heal herself, Hamilton doctors want it to create an all-encompassing cure and The Crows, Mary, and Luke want the map so that it can lead them to Kate, who is allegedly still alive. 

A lot of people with a lot of motivation! 

Ocean, who was confirmed to be the one growing the psychedelic mushrooms for Snake Bite, had the map to Coryana (hidden under the real Napier painting) this whole time, but never told Alice it was a map that could lead them to the one woman who not only wants him dead, but also erased all of his romantic memories with Alice.

There’s a chance he didn’t know about the map, but how would he know to burn it when Sophie caught them?

And if the Dessert Rose is all he’s after, why didn’t he just follow the map back to where it all started in the first place?

What are we missing about Ocean?

Though, admittedly, I’m really into this partnership. Ocean seems like Alice’s equal only slightly deranged, and seeing Alice in love has plenty of potential.

It’s unclear why Coryana wants Ocean dead, but Alice made the right choice by sparing him because that’s clearly leverage to get her sister back. Plus, pretending to “kill him” will help her back into Safiyah’s good graces, and hopefully, we’ll learn more about their previous relationship.

It looks like there was a time that Alice wasn’t a complete psycho, and while it’s delicious to watch her torment the innocent souls of Gotham, it would be fun to explore a different side to her that’s less vindictive. 

I’m a little upset that the series brought Angelique and Ryan back together just to rip them apart again. The relationship was doomed from the start since they never confronted what went wrong the first time around, and instead, jumped right back into a relationship that was previously plagued by bad decisions and addiction. 

Angelique may be clean now, but she’s still dealing and has no plans to stop. That’s problematic for Ryan, who went to prison for her and wanted her to make the best of this second chance.

The reality is that no matter how much they love each other, they don’t see eye-to-eye. Sophie may not always have Ryan’s best interests at heart, but she was right for calling out Ryan for returning to the same lifestyle that previously got her in trouble. 

If she wants to be the hero, she can’t also be dating someone that’s on the opposing team.

Ryan got upset with Luke after finding out he was in cahoots with Alice to find Ocean, but if you think about it, Angelique is working with Ocean, who now has a very “complicated” connection with Alice. That’s a big red relationship flag!

Jacob Kane also needs to learn how to be a father. Mary finally told him about her underground clinic, and while it wasn’t by choice or the way she wanted to do it, it was a weight lifted off her shoulders that she could finally be honest with him. 

And instead of embracing her or trying to understand it, he told her he was shutting it down. 

His logic didn’t even track. After finding out that his wife and Mary’s mom, who was previously CEO of Hamilton Dynamics, gave the green light for human trials, Jacob figured he had to intervene in Mary’s life before she followed the same trajectory. 

There’s no way to justify the logic, especially since Mary has helped so many people that couldn’t afford healthcare and was doing it for the right reasons and not for the money.

Jacob’s problem is that he continues to alienate all of his loved ones without realizing that he’s the biggest problem right along with his corrupt Crows. He could get so much more done if he just worked with Batwoman and Mary instead of riding his high horse and thinking he’s better. 

And then he’s surprised that he’s blindsided by everyone’s secrets when he doesn’t even try to get to know his daughters, and when he does pay attention to them, he takes away the things that make them who they are. 

What did you think of the episode? Will Ryan find the Dessert Rose in time?

What are your thoughts on Alice and Ocean?
