Well, we need a moment to breathe after Riverdale aired its plot-heavy episode 6 Manhunt, which was full of twists, revelations and a shocking cliffhanger.
Betty was left in a precarious situation, Archie broke Veronica’s heart, and we have a new potential culprit for The Gargoyle King!
Next week looks sure to be dramatic enough, as Archie and Jughead enter a strange new environment with a new character in their midst, while Betty faces danger in her new environment and is reunited with Ethel Muggs.
The official plot synopsis teases these developments.
"INTO THE BELLY OF THE BEAST — Fearful that he will be caught, Archie hits the road and ends up at a farm outside Riverdale, where he meets Laurie Lake (guest star Riley Keough). Meanwhile, after Alice takes extreme measures to ensure Betty’s safety from the Gargoyle King, Betty finds herself up against a formidable foe from her past. Finally, after learning that La Bonne Nuit is in trouble, Veronica makes a risky business decision that could cost her everything."
