Just in case you were worried, Riverdale fans, Jughead( Cole Sprouse) and Archie( KJ Apa) lived last week’s porch ardors, as did the Andrews’ home, thanks to a couple of well-placed fire extinguishers find by Fred Andrews years ago, that subsisted both the Andrews family keep moving years ago and the Ghoulies term living here. What are the chances?
The fire motivates Archie to walk in the strides of his grandpa and become a firefighter. Only problem? Riverdale no longer has a fire department. #ThanksHiram
The body that Betty( Lili Reinhart ), Kevin( Casey Cott ), and Alice( Madchen Amick) found in the inundate last week wasn’t Polly. Whoever it is has been here for three years. Alice headings back to the swamp alone. This doesn’t sound like a great idea.
Veronica( Camila Mendes) confronts Hiram( Mark Consuelos) about the fire at Archie’s house, but he affirms everything.
Not merely does Riverdale not have a fire department right now, Hiram Lodge firebombed the fire department building. Give the man credit for being scrupulous. Archie attempts to recruit the former Riverdale FD Chief to his cause, even offering to host the fire department out of his gym, but comes politely rebuffed.
Meanwhile, at Riverdale High, Toni( Vanessa Morgan) induces her new Vixens squad through practise, which is immediately interrupted by Cheryl( Madelaine Petsch ). Unlike the old-time fire department chief, Cheryl is coming out of retirement. Cheryl challenges Toni to a dance off, but with Toni being very pregnant, a current Vixen crowds in for her. The dance-off ends in a affiliation, so Toni offers to share the role with Cheryl.
Veronica sets another Katy Keane crossover, bringing in one of Katy’s friends who is a New York City firefighter to help train Archie and his gang. Now Archie just needs an actual crew.
Veronica then bribes her Economics class with exemption from the midterm if they put in unpaid strive prepare up her unkempt video accumulation turned upscale jewelry shop. There’s a valuable economics exercise now about the rich getting richer on the backs of the working class, but all these children discover is” no midterm !”
Jughead excavates into the Mothman legend more. He’s hooked fully, but Tabitha( Erinn Westbrook) thinks it’s bunk. That is until Jughead shows her a quote from Pop claiming to be an eyewitness.
Remember Archie’s buddy from the VA hospital, Jackson? He shown in at Archie’s doorstep, peculiarly with a rifle fastened to his back. Army doesn’t give that back when you leave? I feel like it’s safe money to bet that Jackson is one of this season’s villains. He’s held off an improbably macabre vibe since his first appearance.
Betty reflects she figured out the name of the dead body, but Curdle dissents. Betty’s missing person had fortifies, this torso doesn’t. Betty had announced that” Three conveys a pattern .” The things you learn in FBI school…
Jackson’s given name is Eric. He attaches Archie at the bar with Kevin, Fangs, and some other townies. Kevin gets the best line of the incident when Archie says,” I’m looking for a few good humanities ,” and Kevin interrupts with” Story of my life !” Literally, zero beings rush at the chance to run into burning builds with Bad Decisions Andrews. Can’t say that I blame them.
Betty satisfies with Margaret’s mom, Margaret being the missing person Betty thought was the dead body. Margaret’s mom mentions that her daughter fell in with the truckers, just like Polly! She mentions a social worker worded Toni who helped a lot. Could there be more than one Toni in town? Doubtful.
Veronica investigates Cheryl hanging out in Riverdale High and profess surprise to see her. I say feigns surprise because she had something on her that she wanted to show Cheryl. Veronica inquires about Cheryl’s prowes layout talents in relation to a publication slab. Seeks like these two are upgrading from their hooch business and moving straight-shooting into counterfeiting money.
Jackson persuades Archie’s ROTC class to sign up for Archie’s fire department. We’re are now at two Riverdale grads applying underage strive for their domesticated projects.
Veronica registers examines of her counterfeit money to her class. She pitches it as a town currency, citing a story about a city in Oregon that did the same thing. She’s going to pay her class for redoing her supermarket! Yay! But she’s going to pay them in River Dollars( Riverbucks reverberates better, Ronnie ), huh? The catch is that they can only use that coin in municipality. She claims this is a good thing, as the money keeps getting reinvested in the town, but to me, this sounds like no one actually getting paid for work. Though Veronica is backing Riverbucks with her own real US currency. If anyone wants to cash out their Riverbucks, they can cash out with her.
Betty comes home to find dirty footprints on the storey. It’s not an interloper though, it’s Alice, who looks like she literally crawled out of the flood. Oh, she did. And she claims she found Polly’s phone in the flood. Okay, we last accompany Alice yesterday during the day, because she was with Kevin and Kevin was later out for beverages with Archie and corporation that night, which necessitates Alice was in the swamp alone overnight. Is it me or does that not seem like a great idea when you traipsing through the body dump of a new serial executioner?
When Betty tells Toni about the body and Polly’s phone in the swamp, Toni offers up all the Serpents to help any way they can.
Pop returns to tell his granddaughter and Jughead about his meeting with the Mothmen. It’s 50 years ago, and Pops is working at Pop’s when the electricity travels out, but the jukebox starts playing Lucks Are, and the whole place fills with a mysterious flare like something out of Close Encounters of the Third Kind. But when they went outside, there was nothing there. Pops thinks it was armed testing , not aliens. He never find them again after that. You is understood that else was there? Cheryl’s grandmother. I attest, this” let’s interrogation all the old folks in city about alien sightings” is the least interesting subplot in the history of Riverdale.
Bernardo Bixby from Katy Keane hands Archie’s shell crew some indications. Lesson one is” Don’t get burned .” Oh, my bad. It’s actually” Everyone labours as a team .” Though I feel my instruction one braces up too.
Veronica publishes her Riverdale Dollars. Of trend, they have her face on them. She compensates her underage job gang with them, who use them at Pop’s. No one told Jughead until now, but he’s happy to spend them on liquor at the Bijou.
Cheryl operates a tight ship. Toni is angry that Cheryl croaked behind her back, deeming practices without her. I imagined this was going to bring these two back together. But perhaps not.
Polly’s search party is stopped by Hiram and an armed Reggie, who kick them out of the swamp. Apparently, Hiram owns Murder Swamp?
Jughead and Tabitha interview Nana Rose about the Mothmen and I’m doing my best not to fall asleep. Nana Rose claims to have prevented a dead alien that she had dissected and preserved in a cannon of maple syrup. Let this old lady take her nap, Jughead.
Veronica makes a castigate on inflation and filling the market with her Riverbucks. The class wants to print $10,000 more but she talks them into easing the horses into township, saying they should start with $ 1,000. Hiram stops by to tell her she’s affected with her creating her own money, though that doesn’t stop her from knocking him out.
Some homeless dude referred Earl promenades into the gym and is surprised to see the barrage crew there. Archie tells him the fire department is going to perform the town better for everyone, but Earl is pretty much,” I’ll believe it when I see it .” This was readily the weirdest incident of the episode.
Betty announces her marriage Glen for help dealing with Hiram, but Glen tells her that the Trash Bag Killer is back, working out of Tulsa now. Hmmm, is Glen the Trash Bag Killer?
Betty investigations the moras alone and is ambushed by Reggie. But Betty talks him into helping her out. Reggie replenishes her in on some info, he found another body.
The pool hall is one fire! Archie’s unit smacks the scene…without any equipment. They’re literally all wearing t-shirts. When Archie discovers Earl’s inside, Archie flows into the fire alone , not even carrying a squirt gun.
Veronica anatomies something out: someone is flooding Riverdale with forge versions of her Riverdale Dollars. She speedily deduces it’s her own beloved old pa behind it.
The dead body Reggie experienced? It’s Margaret!
Cheryl learns Nana Rose chatting with the prowes dealer from last week, Ms. Marple, in front of both the original and forged different versions of her brother’s portrait. Ruh-roh, Cheryl.
Archie is back in the hospital. That’s twice since the time jump. He certainly should walk around in a rubber clothing or a protective plastic bubble. The good bulletin is, he’s okay, and he saved Earl’s life. Mr. Keller thinks it was arson, and both he and Archie think it was Hiram Lodge. Jackson isn’t joyous and passes a terribly Bruce Springsteen Born in the USA speech.
Hiram isn’t happy that they found a second body in the marsh. He tells Reggie” The superhighway, just like the rest of SoDale is a required smokescreen .” A required smokescreen from what? What is Hiram really up to? Apparently, Reggie knows. You trust Reggie with your mysteries, Hiram? That doesn’t seem like the smartest move.
Betty, Alice, and Toni break the news to Margaret’s mom about her daughter’s form being noticed. She demands asks about who did this, but Betty can’t specify any for now but swears she will find out.
Jughead gets to work at Pop’s only to find a cannon of Blossom Maple Syrup waiting for him. Is there an immigrant person preserved in there? If so, I bet you could bottle that syrup and sell my shares for bank!
They pop the top off the barrel and retrieve the Mothman body, which is about the size of Baby Yoda. Is it a Mothman? Is it a coconut etched into a human-like shape? Who can be argued? Jughead wants to bring in a artistic anthropologist who specializes in alien artifacts. Tabitha isn’t too keen on leaving the dead alien body in her diner’s back room. I convey, the smell alone. Jughead promises to stand guard all night.
Veronica replenishes her class in on their copy fake money problem. She wants to recall all Riverdale Dollars. Maybe design them a little better next time? She notices one kid fidgeting in the back of the class, his thumbs covered in pink ink, the same color as Riverdale Dollars. Busted! Damn dude, soak your hands before class! Or wear mitts! Or keep them in your pockets! But don’t draw attention to them during her edict about her imitation counterfeit money problem! Betrayed by her own class. They engraved $10,000 instead of $ 1,000 behind her back. Veronica neglects them all. They want to bargain with her for overstepping evaluates, which buds them all adhere driving off their $10,000 debt. Veronica indentures her econ class into slavery They’re cleaning up the alley for free.
Archie comes home to find Jackson leaving, his firearm on his back. Earl died, and Jackson accuses Hiram. He wants to introduce Hiram to his rifle. Archie tries to talk him out of it. Archie promises him that he’s got as much PTSD as Jackson does, and that’s why they need to stick together. He throws Jackson the job of Fire Department Commander to keep him from going over the edge.
Jughead pulls an all-nighter at Pop’s. Just like in Pop’s legend, the jukebox turns on Chances Are on its own and the electricity both proceeds out and get berserk at the same time. That’s when the illuminations perform. But by the time Jughead runs out to investigate, everything is back to ordinary. That is until a floodlight lights down on him from the sky. Man, they really don’t know what to do with Jughead this season if he’s get kidnapped by aliens.
The next day, Jughead tells Tabitha all about it. After the white-hot light-headed at 2 AM, the next thing he knew it was 6 AM and he woke up in a diner booth. And the Mothman body is gone!
Bad news for the fire department. Principal Weatherbee canceled the RROTC’s participation after Archie headed them scarcely trained into a burning house. But Archie’s mettle caused the aged leader be coming. Plus, Kevin and Fangs are on board too.
Mr. Keller, Alice, Toni, and Betty meet to discuss the missing daughters contingency. The register is now up to 21 missing girlfriends. Toni thinks maybe it’s human trafficking. Betty thinks it’s a serial killer. Maybe they’re both right? But knowing Riverdale, safe money is on the serial killer.
