Episode Detailed Summaries
We open up to Riverdale in the summer of 2008, in a 90s-esque looking living room. In walks a woman fully dressed is black sexy lingerie, who we’ll call MARY from now on. Just then, Mary’s Walkman phone starts playing Psychosocial by Slipknot, which is Mary’s ringtone. Mary grabs her phone and angrily answers it, asking the person why he’s calling.
The person, who’s revealed to be Mary’s ex-boyfriend, Jason Hawking, tells Mary that he misses her and wants her back. Mary, recognising Jason’s tone of voice, realises he’s drunk. She sarcastically asks him if he’s “ran out of other bitches to fuck”. Jason tells Mary to stop being like this, as he only cheated once. Mary angrily tells Jason that he’s lucky she didn’t slit his throat there and then when she found out. Just then, there’s a knock at the door which makes her hang up on Jason.
She answers the door, only to find a pizza delivery guy. Mary, in her sexy underwear, smiles at the delivery man as she tells him that she had forgotten that she had ordered pizza, and therefore left her money inside, before asking him to step inside for a moment, which he does.
Mary walks away from the delivery guy to get her money. Mary returns a few seconds later with the money, which she gives to the delivery guy. However, after giving it to him, she grabs his crotch area, which stuns the delivery boy, who gets turned on. The two start making out, which leads to Mary and Delivery Guy, who from now on we’ll call Ty, drag each other into the bedroom area (she lives in an apartment), where Mary proceeds to undress Ty. As she does this, we notice an upside down crucifix (the symbol of Satanism) on the wall above the bed.
After stripping Ty completely naked, Mary pulls out a POCKET KNIFE and stabs Ty in the chest eight times,killing him. Ty the Delivery Guy is dead. After killing Ty, Mary looks up at the upside-down crucifix and tells herself that Jason is next. She proceeds to put her finger in the pool of Ty’s blood and draws a pentagram on his chest with it. She proceeds to shout “FATHER (Satan), I AM YOURS!” as we cut to black.
We open up the present day at the Cooper house, where we are introduced to Betty Cooper and her sister Polly Cooper as their mother, Alice Cooper, serves them breakfast. Polly asks Alice if she’s going to be okay with looking after Ethan and Evelyn (her twin babies). Alice confirms that she is okay to look after then, before revealing her plans to take them to the park after visiting Hal with them. Betty asks how dad is, before admitting that she hasn’t been to see him yet this week.
Alice says that Hal is good, and offers to go with her tomorrow to see him after school. Betty says she’d like that. Alice asks Polly if she’s wants to come, but Polly says she’s busy tomorrow. She’s taking the twins to see Jason Blossom, who is their father. Alice admits that she can’t believe that she’s still allowing Jason to see the kids, especially after what happened between them.
We cut to a flashback set a month prior, in which we see Polly knocking on the doors of Thornhill, which is where Jason Blossom and his family live. Penelope Blossom, Jason’s mother, answers the door and frowns when she sees that it’s Polly, but smiles when she sees she has the babies. Polly asks if Jason’s here, as she’s brought the kids to see him. Penelope says yes, before snatching the baby stroller out of Polly’s hands and slamming the door in Polly’s face.
We cut to inside Thornhill as Penelope calls Jason downstairs. Jason runs down to find Penelope holding Ethan, leaving Evelyn in the stroller. As she passes Jason his son, she drops him. As the flashback ends, we hear Alice say that she can’t believe that Jason defended Penelope dropping Ethan. Polly says that it wasn’t Jason’s fault, it was just an accident. Betty, realising the time, says they’re going to be late for school, so Alice offers to take her daughters.
We cut to Riverdale High, in Alice’s car, with her driving and Polly, Betty and Polly’s babies sitting in the car. We come to realise that the semester has only just started, and today is their first day. Betty and Polly say goodbye to their mother and the twins, before getting out of the car. However, Alice calls Polly back. Polly tells Betty that she’ll catch her up. Polly asks Alice what’s up. Alice proceeds to tell Polly something which we don’t hear, as we cut to inside the school, where Betty is meeting up with her friends. However, before we meet them, we cut to black.
We open back up to Riverdale High, where we meet Jay Heisel, who is Betty’s best friend. Betty thanks Jay for waiting for her. Jay says that she’s most welcome, before asking where Polly is. Betty says that Polly is talk with their mother. Just then, Tyler Denton walks up to them and highfives Jay, before bro-hugging him. He says hey to Betty, who says hey back.
Kevin Keller, Josie McCoy, Cheryl Blossom, Reggie Mantle, Jason Blossom, Melody Valentine and Valerie Brown walk up to the trio, before all saying hello. Josie and Reggie and holding hands, as are Jason and Melody. Kevin asks everybody if they’ve heard who’s back. Betty says she has, and can’t wait to see her again after so long. Josie says “Speak of the Devil”, before everybody turns around.
Just then, Veronica Lodge walks up to the group and says hi. Everybody, but Tyler, Melody and Valerie, who doesn’t know Veronica, hug her and reunite with their old friend. Veronica sees Tyler and smiles at him. Tyler sees this and smiles back at Veronica.
Cheryl, seeing the time, tells her friends that the girls have cheerleading practice, before saying that they should get going. She invites Veronica to come along, and maybe try out, to which Veronica accepts. As Veronica and the other girls walk away, we see her look back at Tyler with affection. It’s clear to us that she is crushing on him. He smiles back at her. We then realise that Betty is also smiling at Jay, who is smiling at her back.
We cut to cheerleading practice in the main gymnasium, where we find the girls watching Veronica as she is trying out for the Vixens. She is clearly impressing the girls. It’s similar to Toni Topez’ try-out in Season 2 of the show. We notice Cheryl’s face as Veronica works her stuff. It’s almost as if she’s adoring Veronica. As she does her big finish to her performance, the Vixens clap and cheer, which makes Veronica smile. Cheryl stands up and tells Veronica that she’s thoroughly impressed and her made her decision.
She tells Veronica that “better luck next time”, which shocks every single person. Veronica is about to speak, but Cheryl giggles and says she’s joking; Veronica is in and is now a Vixen. Everybody cheers. Betty runs up to Veronica and the two hug to celebrate the latter’s victory.
Just then, one of Cheryl’s former minions and the new queen bee bitch, Ginger Lopez, strolls into the gym and asks if she’s late. Cheryl turns to her and, with an annoyed look, says yes she is. Ginger admits that she was having an argument with her parents, hence why she’s late.
Cheryl says that she understands, before asking Ginger about what happened with Chuck, as she heard that he asked Tina out on a date, which shocks everybody, as, like Josie says, Chuck regularly makes fun of Tina. Ginger gives a devilish smile as she says she and Chuck broke up, but if he wants to catch something, then he picked the perfect rebound.
Ignoring this comment to avoid an argument, Veronica, who is also there, along with Betty and Josie, changes the topic by asking if they mean Chuck Clayton, to which they say yes. Veronica tells her friends that on the day after she came back to Riverdale, she had the misfortune of meeting Chuck, and he grabbed her behind. This shocks the girls, who ask Veronica if she’s told her parents. Veronica admits that she hasn’t, because she has only just returned to Riverdale, and doesn’t want her parents to freak out and want to leave again, plus, her father, Hirim, would kill Chuck, and she isn’t just saying that.
Betty suggests that they teach him a lesson, before hatching a plan that we do not hear as we cut to Chuck’s car, which is parked behind Pop’s Diner, which is where our main characters usually hang out. Tina, who we see is rather beautiful, tells Chuck that she’s had a great night. Chuck tells Tina that he has a confession, as well as an apology, to make. He confesses how sorry he feels for picking on Tina last year, before apologising. Tina accepts his apology. Chuck asks if they can go for a walk, which Tina says yes to.
Outside, in the woods, Chuck asks Tina if she’s ready to do that thing she said she would. Tina gulps, before admitting that she thought it was a joke. Chuck acts upset by this, and starts walking away. Tina calls Chuck back, and apologises, and says that she’ll do it. Chuck unbuttons his pants and takes out his penis, and calls Tina over. We realise that Chuck had previously asked Tina to suck his penis.
She admits that she had never done this before, but Chuck tells her he’ll talk her through it. Tina puts her face by Chuck’s penis, and at this point he starts pissing in her face. Tina, shocked, quickly moves away and finds that GINGER was filming them. Chuck and Ginger laugh at Tina, which reveals they are still a couple and this was just another one of their schemes to humiliate somebody. Tina, absolutely humiliated, runs off into the night as we cut to black.
We open up in Sweetwater forest, next to the Sweetwater river, where we find TINA, repeatedly stabbing what appears to be a dog with a picture of Chuck’s face on it. As she continues to stab the dog, Tina laughs manically. It’s clear that all the bullying and humiliation Tina has faced over her life, has pushed her to the brink of insanity.
Just then, the sound of a twig snapping is heard by Tina, which makes her aware and alert. She demands to know who’s there, before saying she has a knife and she’s not afraid to use it. Getting no response, Tina decides to investigate the noise, with her knife held in front of her, ready to attack. She approaches what appears to be a tree. Tina asks herself if she’s going bat-shit, as there’s nothing here.
Upon saying this, Tina gets the shock of her life as the TREE STARTS TO RISE; revealing THE GARGOYLE KING to be disguising himself as the tree. Tina quickly swings her knife at the Gargoyle King, but he pushes her arm, causing her to drop the knife. Tina asks the Gargoyle King who he is, and what he wants with her.
The Gargoyle King responds by telling Tina that he has the key to her getting revenge against all those who have sinned against her. Tina says that she’s listening. The Gargoyle King reveals that he is on a mission to cleanse this dirty town of all their dirty secrets and sins, and needs a helper. Tina, curious, asks what she’d be needed to do. The Gargoyle King says its simple; all she’d need to do is be loyal and do her part.
Tina asks what her part would be. The Gargoyle King tells Tina that she’d need to murder the residents of Riverdale. Tina laughs at this, calling the killer’s bluff. She says that this is some bullshit, before walking away. The Gargoyle King pulls out a gun and shoots in Tina’s direction, but purposefully misses. He’s gained Tina’s attention. He asks her if it looks like he’s joking. Tina instantly realises that this is a real killer. She asks why she should help him.
The Gargoyle King simply tells Tina that she’s been hurt by so many people; Chuck, Ginger, her parents, and that she has the opportunity to get back at them and make them pay. It’s obvious to us that Tina is actually considering this. After a few seconds, she says she has just two conditions; equal power, and she wants to know who he is. The Gargoyle King tells Tina that he’ll agree to these conditions once she has proven her loyalty to him by committing her first kill. Tina says that she has an idea of who to kill first, before we cut to black.
We open back up to the Cooper house, where we find Betty getting ready to go and see Jay, with Kevin, Josie, Cheryl and Veronica helping her choose what to wear. As Betty puts her hair in her signature ponytail, Josie asks her if she’s excited to see Jay, where as Kevin asks if she’s nervous. She turns to her friends with a smile on her face and admits that she’s both. Cheryl hugs her cousin and tells her that nerves are acceptable, but it’s time for her to make a move as it’s obvious they like each other.
Betty says that if Jay does like her back, then why hasn’t said anything. Everybody turns to Kevin, knowing that he has the perfect answer. Kevin says that Jay is a millennial straight guy and needs to be told what he wants. Veronica chuckles at this, before agreeing. Cheryl asks Veronica what time she’s going out on her date with Tyler. This shocks Kevin and Josie, who ask if she means Tyler Denton, their friend. Veronica smiles and confirms that it is. Josie and Kevin look at each other, which catches Veronica’s attention.
She asks what’s up with her going on a date with Tyler, before jokingly asking Kevin if he likes Tyler. Before she continues to speak, we cut to a FLASHBACK - SET WEEKS BEFORE THIS SEASON - We see the men’s toilets in Riverdale High, where it sounds like somebody is being beaten up against a cubical. However, we soon realise that it’s KEVIN AND TYLER IN A HOT STEAMY EMBRASE! FLASHBACK ENDS and we return back to normal.
Resuming where we left off, Kevin lies and says that he doesn’t like Tyler that way. He adds that he wouldn’t even get anywhere with Tyler if he did, as Tyler’s straight. Veronica says that’s a good point, before saying she should get going. Everybody says goodbye to Veronica as she walks out the door, and as she does, Betty says she’s ready. Kevin, Josie and Cheryl wish Betty luck as we cut to the Samuels/Keller house, after Josie and Kevin have arrived back home.
We are introduced to Kevin’s father, Tom Keller, and Josie’s mother, Sierra Samuels, who are engaged and soon to be married. Tom and Sierra ask their children how school was. They says it was good, before adding that they hung out at Betty’s for a couple of hours afterwards. Sierra says she’s so happy that the two of them (Kevin and Josie) have formed a sibling-like bond, to which Tom agrees with. Kevin and Josie smile, before heading up to Josie’s room.
In Kevin’s room, Josie tells Kevin that she can’t believe Veronica and Tyler are going on a date, especially since Tyler was getting close with Kevin. Kevin, looking sad, admits that this is just one big mess. He then adds that this is the number one reason you shouldn’t fall for a closeted guy.
Kevin admits that he’s considering just giving up with relationships, as none of them have gone well, before mentioning the names Joaquin and Moose. Josie holds Kevin’s hand as she tells him that he shouldn’t give up as he’ll find the right one for him eventually. Kevin thanks Josie, before asking if he can have some alone time. Josie says yes, before telling Kevin that if he needs her, then she’ll just be in her room. Kevin thanks Josie as she leaves the room.
We cut to Pop’s Diner, where we find Betty sitting with Jay in one of the booths. Jay tells Betty that he missed her while he was away (Remember, yesterday was the start of the school semester). Betty smiles as she tells Jay she missed him too. Jay smiles and asks Betty what the highlight of her summer was. Betty admits that the highlight of her summer was her internship at Mayor Samuels’ office. She also reveals that her internship helped her build a better friendship with Josie, who she now sees as one of her best friends. Jay says that’s great.
She asks Jay how visiting his father was. Jay says it was great, Ohio was great as a whole, but he’s missed Riverdale, especially Pop’s milkshakes, and Betty. As Jay takes a sip of his milkeshake, a smile forms on Betty’s face as she repeats Jay saying he missed her, over and over in her mind. Jay, seeing Betty’s smile, asks her what’s on her mind. Betty reveals that she’s been thinking about them and their friendship.
Betty starts to hesitates to speak, which causes Jay to hold her hand to calm her down. She starts off saying that ever since he moved in next door to her, she’s always had a thing for him. This shocks Jay, who asks Betty to elaborate. Betty admits to Jay that she loves him, much more than a friend. A shocked Jay says he didn’t realise that Betty felt this way, which saddens Betty, as she’s under the impression he doesn’t return her feelings. Jay remains silent, not knowing what to say.
Betty says that this was a mistake before getting up and walking away. Jay runs after her and grabs her. He tells Betty that he didn’t know what to say because he didn’t realise she felt the same as him. Betty is shocked at this, before Jay confirms that he likes her back. They proceed to make out in a long, intimate and passionate kiss. As this happens, we notice Pop Tate, the owner of the diner watching them, he chuckles to himself as he says “Awh, young love!”.
We cut to the Samuels’ house, where we find Sierra reading through important documents while frowning. She put the papers down and takes off her glasses. She rubs her forehead before taking a sip of wine. Just then, Josie walks into the room and notices her mother’s frustration, before asking her what’s up.
Sierra tells Josie that it’s her (Josie’s) father; he’s stopped the monthly payments. Josie asks why he’d do that, before sitting down with her mother and holding her hand to calm her down. Sierra reveals that Myles (Josie’s father) didn’t give a reason. Josie jokingly says that he’s probably blowing the bank on Russian hookers and cheap gin. Sierra chuckles at this, before realising that she shouldn’t allow her daughter to say such negative things about her father. Josie says that at least now he won’t have a reason to reach out to her any more.
Just then, Josie’s phone begins ringing. She looks at her phone to find her caller is AN UNKNOWN NUMBER! Josie says to her mother that she’ll be right back, before leaving the room and answering the call. She asks it is, and the caller responds by telling her that he’s “your very worst nightmare”.
Josie says she’s confused, before asking if this is Reggie playing a prank on her. The caller eerily asks if he sounds like Reggie to her. Josie, curious, asks “who is it then?”. The caller, who we realise must be The Gargoyle King, tells Josie that her family, as well as every other resident in this sinful town has sinned and must be punished. Josie, confused, asks the Gargoyle King what he means. He tells her she’ll see soon enough, before hanging up and leaving Josie feeling both threatened and confused.
We cut to the Lopez house, where we find Ginger getting home after a night out in a bar, despite it being a school night. Her parents asks her where she’s been. Lying, Ginger says she’s been at Chuck’s, before heading to her room. She starts unpacking her bag, revealing there to be DRUGS known as Jingle Jangle inside. She tells herself that it’s a shame she couldn’t use those tonight, but she’ll make up for it tomorrow.
Just then, Ginger gets a call from an unknown number. She answers the phone, only to hear a voice she doesn’t recognise ask if this is Ginger Lopez. She confirms it is, before asking who this is. The caller tells Ginger that she’s broke one of the rules to surviving a horror film; ‘Never ask who’s there’. He then asks Ginger “do you wanna die tonight?” Ginger says that this is a joke, before calling the caller a ‘perverted old man’ and hanging up.
Just then, she hears the sound of glasses smashing downstairs, which almost frightens her. Suddenly, a glass smashes in her bedroom. She looks around, and realises that her window is open and has knocked a cup over. She closes her window before sitting on her bed. She doesn’t even move the smashed glass from the floor. As she proceeds to get comfortable, The Gargoyle King, who was hiding under her bed, climbs out from his hiding place and GRABS GINGER, before injecting her with sedative. He drags her unconscious body as we cut to a couple minutes later.
The Gargoyle King watches Ginger in amusement as she slowly regains consciousness, due to him throwing cold water on her face to wake her up. Ginger, seeing that she’s tied up, asks where she is. The Gargoyle King says that she’s at home, and soon, she’ll be right back at her true home; hell. Ginger asks the Gargoyle King what he means.
The Gargoyle King tells Ginger to add two and two together; he called her threatening her life and now she’s tied up. Ginger asks if this is Chuck playing a trick on her, before asking him if he’s trying to get kinky with her. Tina walks in, and says “shocker! Ginger being a whore as always”. Ginger looks disgusted to see Tina in her house. She shouts for her to get out, as if anybody finds out she (Tina) was here, they’d think she (Ginger) invited her. Tina calls Ginger “charming”, before sarcastically asking herself why she was ever friends with this stupid bitch. The Gargoyle King tells Tina that Ginger is all hers.
Tina thanks the Gargoyle King as she walks up to Ginger. She full on bitch-slaps Ginger across the face, making her scream in pain. She asks Tina what that was for. Tina say that was for years of suffering. She tells Ginger that for all her hard work in making her (Tina’s) life a living hell over the years, she though it’d be a nice time to get payback. Ginger asks Tina what she’s talking about.
Tina says that she was “this close” to killing herself tonight, but her friend her (points to The Gargoyle King) showed her that the cowards way out was the wrong choice. She reveals that her new friend showed her that it’s better to get revenge. She tells Ginger that she and her friend have a surprise for her, before nodding to The Gargoyle King, who lifts a sheet up from the table infront of Ginger. Ginger screams upon seeing the CORPSES OF HER PARENTS, who, from their wounds, were obviously stabbed to death. Ginger cries in horror, asking what her parents did to deserve this.
Tina sternly grabs Ginger’s face as she tells her that her parents were sinners and had to pay. Ginger asks how her parents sinned. Tina chuckles as she tells Ginger that they sinned by screwing and giving birth to a little baby bitch (Ginger). She tells Ginger that they suffered a brutal fate cause they raised a horrible little bitch, with no discipline, and soon, Ginger will suffer the same fate for her sin, which is that she’s a toxic bitch. Tina kicks Ginger’s chair backwards, and jumps on her head repeatedly.
The Gargoyle King watches Tina in amusement and admiration as she stomps Ginger’s head to a pulp. Ginger Lopez, Chuck Clayton’s girlfriend and a bully of Tina Patel, is dead. The Gargoyle King says “My, my, my, Tina. You’ve impressed me and have proven your loyalty to me”, before removing his mask and revealing his identity to Tina, who is shocked to realise who it is. She says “Damn, I was *NOT* expecting that”. He then tells his accomplice that it's time for them to take out their next target, before taking Ginger's phone and sending a text message to somebody, whose name we do not see, asking them to come over. Before we see any more, we cut to black.
We open back up to the Lopez house, where we find CHUCK, who is revealed as the person Tina texted last episode, knocking on the door. However, the door creaks open, revealing it to not be locked. Chuck pushes the door open and calls out Ginger’s name, but gets no response. He walks in and shouts “OH SHIT” upon discovering the corpses of Ginger and her parents. He turns to run back out, but runs straight into Tina’s knife, which stabs him in the stomach. He looks at Tina as he falls to the floor. She tells him “You ruined my life, so in turn, I’m going to *END* yours!”. She nods to the Gargoyle King, who appears from off-screen. He grabs Chuck and holds him up. Chuck tells Tina to burn in hell. Tina responds by pulling Chuck’s pants and underwear down before saying “Shut your mouth, pencil dick!”. Chuck threatens to beat Tina up, to which she says “I don’t think you’ll be doing that any time soon”, before proceeding to castrate Chuck with her knife.
A screaming Chuck is in agony and is humiliated. We come to realise that a camera was filming the whole thing. She grabs the camera and asks Chuck how it feels for him to be humiliated on camera for the world to see. Chuck tells Tina to fuck herself, before calling her a psychopath. Tina nods at the Gargoyle King, who drops Chuck to the ground and takes the camera. Chuck tells them to go to hell. Tina responds “I’ll see you there”, before slicing Chuck’s stomach open and pulling out his intestines. As Tina has the time of her life playing and dancing in Chuck’s blood and intestines, he dies. Chuck Clayton, boyfriend of Ginger Lopez, and bully of Tina Patel, is dead. We cut to black.
We open up to the next morning at Riverdale High, where the characters have learned about the four deaths, including Ginger and Chuck. Cheryl shows no sympathy towards Ginger and Chuck’s death, stating that they were nothing but cruel bullies and ultimately got what they deserved. This shocks everybody, who didn’t expect Cheryl to say that.
However, Josie, Valerie, Melody and Reggie soon agree with Cheryl, stating that they did literally just send out a video of Chuck pissing on Tina, which must be humiliating for her. Betty asks if any of them have seen Tina, but everybody shakes their heads. Veronica, who walks up to the group with Tyler, hand in hand, which annoys Kevin, asks the group if they’ve heard about the murders. The group confirm they have, before admitting that they were just talking about it.
Just then, Josie’s phone begins ringing; it’s the unknown number again. Josie answers the call and asks if this is the same person from last night. The caller, who is revealed as the Gargoyle King, confirms that it is, and asks if she liked his work. Josie realises that her caller is the person who killed Chuck and Ginger. She asks why he killed them. The Gargoyle King responds “I told you what I was doing; cleansing out the sinners in this sinful town”. He then tells Josie to put the call on loud speaker, as he wants everybody to hear this, which she does.
The Gargoyle King reveals that the murders of Chuck, Ginger, and Ginger’s parents were just an example of what’s to come. He and his “special friends” are going to tear this town to the ground and make it burn. Veronica asks the Gargoyle King who his “special friends” are. To which The Gargoyle King reveals as The Purger, Ghostface and The Bump. Jay and Kevin both say that they recognise the names Ghostface and the Bump. Jay reveals that his father had a run-in with a LOGs member by the alias Ghostface. Kevin then reveals that his father had a similar run-in with the Bump, who had raped a 9-year-old school girl.
The Gargoyle King says that he’s glad that they know of his helpers. He then reveals that the Purger is somebody they know, and that person got the honor of killing their biggest enemies; Ginger and Chuck. Reggie asks who it is. The Gargoyle King tells to think about who Ginger and Chuck have hurt recently. Everybody realise that it must be Tina, which the Gargoyle King confirms. He then tells them that Riverdale will burn along with the corpses of every single person inside it, before hanging up. This leaves everybody mortified. Kevin says they have to tell his dad straight away.
We cut to the Cooper house, where Betty and Polly are sitting at the table with Alice due to their school closing due to the Gargoyle King’s threat. Betty asks if this could somehow be related to the Bloody Mary killings. Alice tells Betty not to be silly, as there’s no way Mary Thomas is still alive as she was shot by police. Polly backs Betty up, adding that Mary was never found; dead or alive, she just vanished. Betty adds that Mary could’ve survived her gunshot wounds.
Alice, realising that this is a possibility, warns her daughters not to tell their father, who is a survivor of Mary’s killing spree, as she doesn’t want to risk him having another breakdown, especially if it turns out Mary isn’t involved in these killings. She also tells her daughters that they’re on a 8pm curfew until the killers are caught. Polly and Betty are understanding with their mother, due to being scared themselves.
Alice also warns Polly to not leave the babies alone at Thornhill, as all they know is that one or all of those bastard-Blossoms are the killers. Polly admits that she doubts Jason, Cheryl or even Rose are capable of murder, although she admits she can’t say the same for Penelope or Clifford. She then asks her mother why she hates the Blossoms so much anyway.
Alice says that she has her reasons, but she’s not saying until she’s not ready to. Before we see any more, we cut to the Valentine household, where we find Melody with Jason, who are helping each other prep for a music test. Jason is playing the piano as Melody watches. He stops and asks her how he sounds. She tells him he sounded good, and it seems he’s making wonderful progress. Jason thanks her and smiles. She asks him how the kids are, to which Jason says they’re good.
He admits that he hasn’t really seen them as much as he used to, due to Polly being on edge with what Penelope did to Ethan. Melody says that sucks. Jason admits that he doesn’t blame Polly, as Penelope actually did it on purpose, as punishment for Jason being two minutes late. Melody says that she knows that Penelope is his mother and all that, but she is such a bitch. Jason chuckles as he agrees with Melody.
After this, Jason realises the time and says he should get going. Melody walks him to the door and the two of them kiss; revealing them to be a couple. Jason tells Melody that he’ll see her tomorrow, before walking to his car. Melody closes the door and walks inside her music room. She notices that her sheet music is scattered all over the floor, and calls out to her parents, asking if they did it but gets no response.
Melody picks up her sheet music and puts it in a pile on her desk. She tells herself that she and Jason are gonna ace this test. Just then, the Gargoyle King sneaks up on Melody and chokes her to death with her cello bow. After 20 seconds, a bloody Melody takes her last breath. Melody Valentine, girlfriend of Jason Blossom and close friend of Josie Samuels, is dead.
Just then, there’s a knock at the door. Curious, the Gargoyle King walks up to the door and opens it, before hiding. Jason, who is revealed to be the knocker, walks in and calls out to Melody that he forgot his phone. Jason walks into Melody’s music room and finds Melody’s corpse. However, before he can react, the Gargoyle King sneaks up behind him and shoots him in the back of the head. Jason Blossom, brother of Cheryl Blossom, boyfriend of Melody Valentine and father of Ethan and Evelyn Cooper, is dead. We cut to black.
We reopen at the Lodge residence, where we find Veronica sitting in her bedroom. Just then, her phone rings. She sees that the caller is the unknown number that called Josie and hesitates, but ultimately decides to answer. She asks if this is the Gargoyle King. The caller laughs, revealing that he’s not the Gargoyle King, he’s much more advance and cruel. He then reveals that he’s Ghostface.
Veronica asks Ghostface what he wants. Ghostface reveals that he’s targeting the parents of Riverdale for their sins from years ago. He tells Veronica that he hears her father has been a naughty boy. Veronica gulps, asking Ghostface what he means. Ghostface tells Veronica that he knows her father used to sneak into her room at night at molest her.
A scared Veronica sobs, asking Ghostface how he knows this. Ghostface chuckles, revealing that he knows everything, and now so does Hermione. Veronica asks Ghostface what he means, but he hangs up before he can answer. Just then, Hermione bursts into Veronica’s bedroom and asks her if there’s anything she wants to tell her. A speechless Veronica is too scared to say anything.
Hermione sobs as she asks if Hirim has been hurting her daughter. A tearful Veronica nods to her mother, who grabs Veronica and holds her close. Hermione tells Veronica that she’s gonna keep her safe from now on. And now she knows about Hirim, he’s gonna regret every laying a finger on either one of them. Veronica realises what Hermione just said. Hermione confesses that Hirim hurt her too. Veronica remembers seeing bruises on Hermione’s arm, to which Hermione admits that they were done by Hirim, and not that she fell down the stairs like she said. Veronica and Hermione hug each other as they cry for their shared tragedies.
We cut to the Samuels house, where Josie is mourning Melody’s death. She cries, asking herself why Melody had to die. Just then, there’s a knock at the door. A grieving Josie calls out, asking who’s there. The knocker reveals herself as Cheryl. Josie tells Cheryl to come in, which she does.
We notice that Cheryl has been crying, as her mascara has run down her face with her tears. She sobs that JJ is gone, and so is Melody. She walks over to Josie and sits on her bed with her as they start to mourn their losses together. While Josie rubs her hand on Cheryl’s face to comfort her, it appears that something is starting to awaken inside Cheryl, which causes Cheryl to jump up and run off, despite Josie pleading with her to come back.
We cut to Thornhill, where Cheryl runs through the main doors and straight upstairs to the bathroom. As she runs past the living room, we hear Clifford say that he wishes that Cheryl were the one who was murdered, not Jason. Upstairs, we find Cheryl locking herself in the bathroom, before crying as she looks at herself in the mirror. She realises that something she has tried to keep hidden all her life is coming back. She results to punching the mirror; smashing it as we cut to black.
Honor Thy Father and Mother
We open up to a run-down abandoned building, which for now we’ll call the Outpost. Just then, the Gargoyle King walks into view with Ghostface, who is obviously his superior, the Bump, and Tina, who is in costume. The Gargoyle King thanks the Bump for finding them this place, as it’s perfect and exactly what they needed. Ghostface asks the Gargoyle King what his next move is going to be. The Gargoyle King says that he’s gonna do more behind-the-scenes stuff and send Tina out on the next part of her mission, which makes Tina chuckle in excitement.
Ghostface says that he’s gonna make his first move on the parents, and enlists the Bump to help him. He tells the Bump that if he gets lucky, then maybe he can rape Veronica as a reward, which makes the Bump VERY happy. He says that he’s always wanted to taste a Latina cootch. Tina and the Gargoyle King chuckle at this before the killers depart.
We cut to the Patel house, which is being vandalised by some teenage members of the Serpants named Moose (Kevin’s ex-boyfriend, who has since joined the Serpents) and Dilton, who were friends of Ginger and Chuck. Tina’s father, Devin, comes out with a phone and threatens to call the police on them if they don’t leave immediately. Dilton and Moose laugh at Devin, jokingly telling him that getting the police here would be a bad move on his part, as then Tina would be found (they’re implying that Devin is hiding Tina, as everybody knows she’s a murderer). Devin tells the teenagers that he hasn’t heard from or seen Tina since before she turned into a psychopathic bitch.
Dilton jokes that she probably turned into a psychopathic bitch because Devin and Kym (Devin’s wife, Tina’s step-mom) used to beat her and molest her. This accusation stuns Devin, who results to walking back inside the house and slamming the door closed, before locking it. Dilton and Moose highfive each other, before continuing their vandalism. Just then, an irritated Tina walks up to them and tells them that they were half right about what her father and step-mother did; they only beat her up, they never molested her. Dilton and Moose remain silent due to knowing that Tina is a killer.
Tina tells them that since they’re here, that she might as well build up her body count. She pulls out her knife and stabs Dilton in the head, which makes Moose freak out and tries to run, but Tina throws her knife at him. The blunt end hits Moose in the back, making him call down. Tina runs up to Moose and grabs him by the hair to lift his head up before slitting his throat. Dilton and Moose are dead.
She proceeds to drag their corpses over to the front door, before saying to herself that revenge is sweet. Tina pulls out a miniature gas canister before throwing it through an open window, and we cut inside the house. We see Kym and Devin talking about the accusation of them being child molesters. Just then, they hear something smash. Alerted, they jump up and rush to the living room, where they find the can, which has split open. Almost instantly after smelling the fumes of the gas canister, they each realise that they’re fucked. We cut back outside, where Tina lights a match and throws it through the open window, before running away. As she runs further away, the house explodes into fiery flames. Dilton and Moose’s corpses burn with it. We hear Kym and Devin screaming as they burn to death. Eventually, their screams are no-more. Kym and Devin Patel, step-mother and father of Tina Patel, are dead.
We cut to Pop’s, where we find Josie sitting in a booth with Reggie. She tells him about the call she received the other day from the Gargoyle King, about him telling her that she’s his main target because of something her father did. Reggie says this is fucked up. He grabs her hand and tells her that they’ll find this sick son of a bitch and bring them down; stopping the rampage. Josie tells Reggie that they’ve never actually spoke about her father before now. Reggie says that is true, before asking what happened between them.
Josie admits that nothing actually happened between her and her father, it was a thing between him and her mother. She tells him that long story short, her father cheated on her mother, and then abandoned her to pursue a music career in New York. Reggie suggests that maybe whoever the person her father cheated on her mother with, is somebody related to the Gargoyle King. Josie realises that this is a possibility, but says that it’d be a bit sad if a person were to literally start murdering innocent people to get revenge on her for something her father did. Reggie agrees with Josie, but adds that maybe there is more to the story, or maybe they’re entirely wrong on what the motive could be. Josie says that she doesn’t really care about the motivation, she just wants the killings to stop.
We cut to the Lodge residence, where we find Veronica cooking food in the kitchen. Just then, Hirim walks in and says hello to his wife, whom he kisses on the cheek. Veronica has a wicked smile on her face as she tells Hirim she’s made his favourite dish, and it’s nearly ready. Hirim says that this is splendid, as he is parched. Hermione tells Hirim that this food’ll fill him up. She takes it out of the oven and puts it on two plates; one for her and one of Hirim. She places the plate in front of him, before pouring him a glass of wine. Hirim tells Hermione that this looks stunning and can’t wait to tuck in. Hermione tells him to do so then, which he does.
Hermione sits on the chair opposite Hirim and tells him she knows what he did to Veronica all those years ago, with him sneaking into her room at night to molest her. Hirim asks Hermione if Veronica told him this, as she’s full of shit. Hermione tells Hirim that Veronica didn’t tell her, but she knows it’s true. She reminds Hirim how he once beat her (Hermione) up and raped her while she was unconscious. She tells Hirim she wouldn’t put it past him to deflower their only daughter. Hirim tells Hermione not to speak to him like this, as he deserves respect. Hermione tells Hirim that he’s wrong, what he deserves is something more brutal; and he’s gonna get it. Hirim chuckles, telling his wife to do her worst. Hermione tells Hirim that she already has.
Just then, Hirim starts choking on his food as he struggles to stand up. Hermione reveals that she laced the food and wine with arsenic, and now she will get the two of the things she wants in life; 1. To keep Veronica safe, and 2. Watch him (Hirim) die. Hirim falls to the floor in a seizuring fit as he starts bleeding from the mouth and nose. After a few seconds, Hirim takes his last breath. Hirim Lodge, father and molester of Veronica Lodge, and husband of Hermione Lodge, is dead.
Before we see anything else, we cut to Tyler’s car, which he is sitting in with Kevin. Tyler tells Kevin that he can’t keep doing this because he likes Veronica. Kevin rolls his eyes and tells Tyler that he can’t keep pretending to live Veronica just to hide his secret. He asks him what’d happen when it comes to Tyler and Veronica having sex. He reminds Tyler that he can’t get ‘it’ (his penis) up when it comes to girls. Tyler tells Kevin that he’ll work something out; take viagra; do anything he can. Kevin tells Tyler that being gay is nothing to be ashamed of. Tyler tells Kevin that’s where he’s wrong; his family are religions Christians and regularly go to church often. He adds that he’s on the football team, which has some of the most homophobic people he’s ever met.
Kevin tells Tyler that his parents might surprise him and turn out to be supportive, but Tyler says he’s not going to attempt to find out if they would be supportive. He tells Kevin that this is the end of them two as it can’t continue anymore. Kevin asks if he can have just one last kiss, to which Tyler says yes to. They start kissing, which turns into a hot and steamy embrace. Realising what’s happening, Tyler quickly stops and pushes Kevin away. He tells Kevin that his decision is final, before ordering Kevin to get out of the car, which he does. Tyler quickly drives off, leaving Kevin in the cold and dark. We soon notice that they were being filmed by TINA!
We cut back to the Lodge house, where we find Hermione cleaning up the mess from killing Hirim. As Hermione wraps Hirim’s corpse up in a old rug, we notice a dark figure sneaking up behind her with a frying pan. Hearing the floorboard behind her creak, Hermione turns around, only to find GHOSTFACE behind her. Before she can say or do anything, Ghostface bludgeons Hermione to death with the frying pan. Hermione Lodge, mother of Veronica Lodge, and wife and victim of Hirim Lodge, is dead. Ghostface pulls out a knife and carves the year ‘1992’ into Hermione’s forehead.
We cut to Veronica’s bedroom, where she is on facetime with Betty. She tells her bestfriend that her mom knows about what Hirim used to do. She tells Betty that she’s scared that her father is going to do something in retaliation for exposing him. Just then, Betty calls out, telling Veronica to watch out. Veronica turns around and jumps when she finds THE BUMP BEHIND HER. She quickly punches him in the mask, which breaks his nose, and kicks him, before pushing past him and dashing town the stairs to find her mother. However, instead she finds Hermione and Hirim’s corpses. Veronica screams, before dashing out of the house (I’ll confirm she saw the year that’s carved in Hermione’s corpse). We cut to black.
Opening up a little bit after the last episode left off, we find ourselves at the Brown house, where Mrs. Brown, Valerie’s mother is doing needle-point as she watches a game show. She boos upon seeing that a woman got a simple question wrong. Just then, there’s a knock at the door. Mrs. Brown answers the door, only to find that the knocker is the Gargoyle King
Before she can slam the door in his face, the Gargoyle King pushes Mrs. Brown backwards and dashes into the house, closing the door behind him. Mrs. Brown tries to wiggle away, which triggers the Gargoyle King to stamp on her leg, causing it to make a cracking noise; meaning it’s broken. Mrs. Brown, in agony from her broken leg, calls out for Valerie’s help but gets no answer. She attempts to crawl away as the Gargoyle King punches a framed photo; smashing it. the Gargoyle King grabs one of the glass shards and walks up to a injured Mrs. Brown and proceeds to stab her in the neck; killing her.
As the Gargoyle King sneaks upstairs, we cut to Valerie’s room, where we find that she is playing very sad, depressing music as she lays in bed. It’s obvious that she’s in mourning due to Melody’s death. As she continues to mourn, we flashback to Valerie being the person who found Melody and Jason’s corpses. We cut back to the present, and see just how depressed Valerie is. Just then, Valerie hears a knock at her bedroom door.
Assuming it’s her mother, Valerie shouts her to come in. However, nobody does come in and instead, there is another knock at the bedroom door. An annoyed Valerie crawls out of bed and walks over to her bedroom door, before opening it and finding the Gargoyle King. She screams as he swings a knife at her. However, Valerie quickly slams the door in his face before the knife can hit her, thus making the knife stab into the door. He kicks the door open runs over to Valerie, who tries to fight back. The Gargoyle King puts himself at an advantage by stabbing Valerie in the stomach. He tosses her onto her bed and continues stabbing her in the stomach and chest repeatedly. He then grips her by the hair and pulls her up, before cutting her throat. Valerie Brown is dead.
We cut to the Lodge Residence, which is is now an active crime scene. Alice, Betty, Polly, Josie, Reggie, Jay, Kevin, Tyler, Cheryl and Tom are there. Everybody, except Tom, who is investigate the crime scene, talk about the murders. Reggie says that he can’t believe how many people have been murdered in such a short period of time. Kevin says that he can’t believe that people are actually being murdered. Cheryl says that Riverdale went pretty much crime-free for 7 years, but now all sorts of crime keep happening. Kevin and Tyler both say that this stuff needs to stop, and it needs to stop now. Everybody agrees with them.
Just then, Tom walks over and tells Alice he needs to speak to her in private. Kevin asks how Veronica is. Tom tells the teens that Veronica was hysterical when they found her hidden in a bush in the backyard, to the point where she had to be sedated to calm her down, which saddens everybody. He then tells Alice to come with him, which she does. In private, Tom tells Alice about the year ‘1992’ being carved into Hermione’s forehead and admits that he thinks that somebody knows their secret.
Before we see or hear anything else, we cut back to the teens. Cheryl asks where Veronica is going to stay, as it’s obvious she can’t stay in that house alone. Betty tells them that Veronica can stay at her house, Alice returns to the teens. She tells them that she’s had a word with Tom, and it’s been decided that Veronica will be staying with them at the Cooper residence. Betty agrees with her mother, revealing that she also just suggested that.
Just then, one of Tom’s deputies walks up to Tom and informs him that another two bodies; a teenager girl and her middle-aged mother, have just been uncovered at the Brown residence, which our main characters overhear. Everybody tears up upon realising that the cop means Valerie and her mother.
We cut to the next morning at the Cooper’s, where we find Alice, Polly and Betty having breakfast. Polly says that she can’t believe this is happening so quickly; They’re losing everybody they care about. Betty and Alice agree, with Alice revealing that she and Hermione were best friends in high school. She says she cannot believe she’s actually gone. Alice asks Betty how Veronica slept last night. Betty reveals that Veronica didn’t sleep last night. She kept hearing her tossing and turning all night.
Just then, Veronica walks downstairs and thanks them for letting her stay last night. Alice tells Veronica that she’s most welcome and she’s also welcome to stay as long as she likes. Veronica thanks Alice. Betty and Polly say they should all get going to school, but Veronica admits that she doesn’t feel like going in today as she needs rest. Alice permits this and tells Veronica to make herself at home.
Once Polly and Betty are gone, Alice tells Veronica that she has to pop out with the babies to go get some groceries. With Alice gone, Veronica goes up to Betty’s room and pulls out a photo album. As Veronica flips through the pages, we see that the pictures that Hirim are in, have jos face scribbled out. She tells a picture of her mother that she will find the person that killed her and she will avenge her. She gets up and wipes the tears off her face as we cut to Tom’s house, where we find Tom, Sierra, Penelope and Clifford.
Penelope rolls her eyes as she says “Typical Alice, always late. Just like in high school”. Alice then arrives with the babies and apologises for being late. We notice Alice give Clifford a disgusted look, which nobody sees. Sierra asks Tom why he called this meeting. He reveals that the year ‘1992’ was carved into Hermione’s forehead and he thinks somebody might know what they did in that year and that’s why the killings are happening. Penelope rolls her eyes once more and tells everybody that she, nor Clifford, really did anything that night. Alice reminds them that all of them were in that video after ‘IT’ started, so whomever is doing this may think they’re responsible. We cut to Riverdale High, where all of the main characters, except Veronica, are sitting together. Just then, a depressed Veronica then walks up to them, which stuns everybody in the cafeteria. She reveals that she needs to speak to Tyler about something important in private. Veronica takes Tyler to an empty classroom, but before we see what is said, we cut to Principal Peabody’s office, where we find her CORPSE, bleeding out on the floor. It’s obvious she has been stabbed to death. As the camera pans up, we find TINA grabbing the microphone. She takes out her phone and starts playing the audio of a video.
We cut to Veronica and Tyler, where Veronica is about to ask Tyler something. Just then, they both hear the audio being played on a speaker near them. We come to realise that the audio is the sounds of Tyler and Kevin making out, which causes Tyler to freak out and run off. Veronica chases after him but he proves to be too fast for her. He bursts out of the main entrance and runs to his car. He gets in his car and speeds off. Veronica runs back into school and bumps into Cheryl, who Veronica asks if she has a car. Cheryl says yes, and asks why. She tells them that when Tyler heard that video, he fled, and now she’s worried about him. Cheryl tells Veronica to say no more, before the pair run out of the school to Cheryl’s car.
We cut to Betty and Jay in the cafeteria sitting alone as Betty wanted to speak to him privately. Betty reminds Jay about Mary Thomas, the Bloody Mary killer, killed 28 people. As Jay nods in remembrance, Betty reveals to Jay that there is something nobody but her family knows. Jay asks what it is. Betty reveals that Mary fell deeply in love with Hal and began stalking him. She killed her (Betty) grandparents. Eventually, Hal lured Mary to Sweetwater River, and she was shot in the back by police but she somehow survived and vanished. She admits that she’s worried that with the killing spree going on, that she’s scared Bloody Mary will come out of hiding and target her family for Hal’s rejection of her.
Jay holds Betty’s hand and tells her that should Bloody Mary return and target her family, then together, they will take Bloody Mary down. He then hugs Betty as he tells her that he’s not going to let anything happen to her. We cut to Veronica and Cheryl in the latter’s car, where they eventually find Tyler standing on the side of a bridge, ready to jump; it’s obvious he’s about to commit suicide out of shame and guilt over his sexuality.
Veronica and Cheryl jump out of the latter’s car and plead with Tyler not to jump as he still has so much to live for. Tyler sobs that he’s sorry pretended to be crushing on Veronica to hide his secret. Veronica says she doesn’t care about that. All she cares about is that Tyler comes down from there and comes with her and Cheryl. Tyler sobs that everybody’s gonna judge him and bully him. Cheryl tells Tyler that she and Veronica will be there with him and will beat the shit out of anybody who judges him. They plead with Tyler to come down as tears drip down their faces. They tell Tyler that they care about him, but this isn’t enough to get Tyler down.
Realising that this could possibly be the only way to get him down, Cheryl takes it upon herself to climb up onto the wall and stand next to Tyler. She reminds him that they’ve been best friends since they were three. He always let her crash at his house whenever her parents did something to upset her. He’s also always looked out for her every single time somebody teased her. She tells him that if he goes, she goes, as she has nothing else to live for; her brother is dead and her parents are abusive. Veronica sobs as she tells Tyler that she’s already lost both of her parents, and begs him not to make her lose two of her best friends too. With the girls’ words replaying in his mind, Tyler turns around and climbs off the way, with Cheryl following him. The two girls wrap their arms around Tyler, who bursts into tears. We cut to black.
Spoilers and Fun Facts

- We will witness the recruition of one of the killers.
- This was Tina Patel, who was recruited as the Purger killer.

What Would've Happened
- Archie and Jughead would've appeared in this story as Veronica and Betty's love interests, respectively, but I decided to save them for Season 2.
- I did this to shy away from making the story predictable.
- I considered using Sweet Pea as Josie's boyfriend instead of Reggie, but I decided to save him for Season 2.
- Betty and Veronica would've been the primary final girls in the story, however I felt like it was overdone, so I changed it and made Josie, a character who is underused in the show, the final girl.
- I considered making Josie the opening death, along with Melody and Valerie, but I soon decided against this upon making the decision to make her the final girl.
- Initially, I considered not having Polly be in this season, and bring her in during Season 2, but I soon decided against this when I got new ideas.
- Polly was originally going to be Betty's older sister, but I switched it so they are twins.
- Originally, Jay and Tyler were listed as final boys, but I decided to remove that listing.
- Betty originally had her Season 3 promo look from the show in as her character image, but I found a picture of Lili portraying young Alice far more fitting for this version of Betty.
