Riverdale fans have been waiting to learn the identity of Edgar Evernever for the entirety of season three. And now that moment has finally come. Now when you think of the man who has lured Polly and Alice Cooper to "The Farm," you know who's face to imagine: Chad Michael Murray's.
Yes, the Chad Michael Murray from One Tree Hill and A Cinderella Story will be playing the charming, enigmatic cult leader who runs "The Farm," where Betty's sister and mother now spend most of their time. And suddenly, I totally understand why so many women have joined the cult.
"The Farm" on Riverdale has played a big role in season three, although we still don't know too much about it.
After Hal Cooper is arrested for murdering people around town, Alice has a hard time coming to terms. Polly tells her she knows someone at the Farm who can help her.
Soon, Alice joins the cult and begins pushing its beliefs on Betty. "Edgar has done nothing but help me," Alice tells Betty at the beginning of season three. "He's encouraged me to embrace everything that I was ashamed of and become the best version of myself."
Ironically, he's known most for One Tree Hill, which also aired on the CW.
The casting is very on point for Riverdale, which features many adult actors who first became famous for playing iconic teen roles (i.e., Luke Perry, Skeet Ulrich, Mädchen Amick, and Molly Ringwald).
