Archie Is Getting his Superhero On

Archie is running around town in a mask, preventing crime. Chasing Dodger’s minions from crime scenes, whilst wearing a mask and speaking in a very strange deep voice…

His gym is under public scrutiny from locals, who are unhappy about the presence of another gang in the area. FP suggests that he hold an open evening, inviting locals to observe the good the gym is doing.

Jughead’s Favourite Author Comes To Town

And he knew Jughead’s grandfather…

Turns out Jughead’s flare for writing comes from his Grandfather. However, when Jughead discusses this with FP, he is reminded of his Grandfather’s violent nature.

Jughead attends a murder mystery party at his school, where he is told he by author that he should apply for the ghostwriter position for some of his favourite books.

On doing some research, Jughead finds out that it was his grandfather who gifted him his favourite books every birthday. He finds a hidden message in one of the books from Forsyth the first, all very cryptic…

Jughead decides to embrace his Forsyth-ness, and lets Mr Chipping know that he can refer to him as Forsyth the 3rd from now on. He’s also entering the writing competition which involves plotting the perfect murder.

It’s Veronica’s Parents’ Trials

Of course, Hyrem is up to his old tricks, and tries to further incriminate Hermione. Veronica then turns to blackmailing Governor Dooley, again…

Despite Ronnie’s efforts, her mom pleads guilty in court.

Veronica meets a stranger, who tells her she’s a private investigator who has been recording Veronica’s nefarious conversations in attempt to frame Hyrem. Not only is this mystery woman a PI, she’s Hyrem’s other daughter, Ramosa.

You would think Hyrem would pack up and leave Riverdale with his daughter, but nope, he announces his intention to run for Mayor…

Betty Thinks She’s A Serial Killer

Betty was diagnosed previously with MAOA and CDH13, or the “serial killer” genes. But when she attends Charles’ detective class, it turns out she can spot serial killers in a line up. As if she has some sixth sense for gene recognition… Betty then starts to realise she’s repressed some things from her childhood. Mainly the killing of her cat, which was an action her father forced her into.

Also turns out Charles had it too. But Betty and him don’t share a Dad… which means she must have inherited it from her Mom? Yet her dad is The Blackhood… Betty suspects something is off with this confession from Charles and decides to follow him. I mean, we’re 5 episodes into this season and she’s only now realising that this random guy might not be who he claims to be?

There’s an arrest…

And we can’t help think it plays back into this perfect murder Jughead is tasked with coming up with…
