Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa told Entertainment Weekly that the episode is very important to the big mystery this season, which will tie in a board game that could have "claimed" Dilton Doily and Ben the pizza delivery kid as victims.
Sounds like Jumanji tbh.
He explained, “One of the things that the kids discover pretty early on is that the murder victims in the present were playing a game called Gryphons & Gargoyles, which is of course the Rivderdale version of Dungeons & Dragons. And what our kids in the present discover is that their parents, when they were in high school, were also playing this game and there was a similar murder that happened in the past.”
But the most interesting part of the whole episode is just how SIMILAR these kids look to their parents back when they were the same age. Need proof? Carry on...
