As you know from the second last episode, Jason Blossom's murderer was Clifford Blossom, his father.
Now... if you thought that was a big deal, wait until you hear what happens next... there is another murder.
So, who dies?
Are you sure you want to know... because we're still crying...
Veronica's mum Hermione fired Fred's construction team and offered to buy him out, since Hiram is getting out of jail and coming to town.
Fred refuses to sell his interest in the construction project to the Lodge family, and honestly, Hermione is NOT NICE IN THIS EPISODE.
We don't want to spill everything but the four main crew, Jughead, Betty, Veronica and Archie go and do their own thing for the night. After Archie leaves Veronica's house the next morning, he heads to Pop's to meet with his dad. He quickly goes to the bathroom, and hears some commotion back in the diner, only to find that Pop himself is being held at gunpoint... but really, it seems like a set up.
A HUGE gunshot is heard off camera...
Everyone things Archie is shot...
But #NOPE, it's Fred. He's on the ground. MAYBE DEAD.
FRED ANDREWS NOOOO! Jughead narrates that the murder was "anything but random", so season 2, meaning the entire "robbery" was probably just to get to Fred.
Season 2, we assume, will centre around who killed Fred Andrews and why?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! (WE SUSPECT HERMIONE OR HIRAM LODGE TBH).
We are incredibly upset right now, and would like to remind you just how gorgeous Fred Andrews is in this "Hot Daddies of Riverdale" post.
WHAT ELSE HAPPENED?
Alice Cooper gave her son up for adoption, meaning Betty and Polly have an older brother roaming around somewhere.
Cheryl is in an awful situation with her creepy mother. She eventually escapes Thornhill and attempts to kill herself in the now frozen Sweetwater River. Archie saves her by PUNCHING the ice, and bleeding everywhere. It's insane, and amazing. Thank god she's alive.
Cheryl proceeds to burn her house down like the dramatic little queen that she is. Go girl.
Jughead is transferred to a Southside school, and embraces his Serpent legacy.
#BUGHEAD are going strong. Like, "I love you" level strong...
Archie and Veronica are a thing, but Veronica suspects Archie is in love with Betty.
Anyway, we're going now to go cry over Fred Andrews some more. Bye.
