We knew another death in the show was coming, but we did not expect it to be the show's only decent parent...
But one thing we can rely on with these kinds of shows, is that he wasn't shown dead, meaning, he might just survive the gun shot wound.
Thankfully, E Online sat down with KJ Apa and Luke Perry, where they dish on Fred's fate.
"Fred living or dying is still unclear," KJ said. "Whether or not he does live or die, Archie's life is about to change, for sure."
We love you Arch, but we're so glad you'll be getting a more interesting story line than your music career.
Luke Perry however has faith.
"I have a lot of trust in him [show runner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa]. I'm happy to go wherever he takes me. If he kills me, he kills me. If he don't, he don't!"
WE REALLY HOPE HE DON'T!
Thank God season two is returning at the end of this year, because we really couldn't wait for 2018 to answer all of these questions.
