Riverdale came to a satisfying end this week, and most of the season's gripping questions were answered.
Almost all of the core four's issues resolved, and the episode ended with them making a pact to have a stress-free, normal senior year. Suddenly, flash-forward to their following senior year spring break. Archie, Betty, and Veronica are huddled around a bonfire warning each other to never speak of "this" again, and one major key player is missing — Jughead sans beanie.
Riverdale creator Roberto Aguierre-Sacasa talked to Entertainment Weekly about what is to come on the upcoming season.
Now that Jason has, er, resurfaced, things don't look great for Cheryl's mental state.
Last we saw Cheryl, she was talking to the dug-up corpse of her brother. According to Aguierre-Sacasa, the death of her brother has always been something that persistently disturbs Cheryl. Her relationship with him will take an even darker and more twisted turn in the upcoming season.
The third season ended with the core four planning for a "normal" senior year — in Riverdale speak, that means it's about to be the wildest ride yet.
It couldn't be a more typical foreshadowing, the core four toasting to a drama-free year with no mysteries to solve. Of course, when it comes to Riverdale, as soon as one mystery is resolved another one is right around the corner. Despite the cheery final shot of season three, season four is set up to be the darkest season yet.
