The parents of Riverdale have been misbehaving of late, what with their keeping secrets about their role in The Midnight Club, connections to mysterious deaths, and also the fact that one of them probably is the Gargoyle King.
But the teens of Riverdale are ready to fight back, and with two of their strongest ladies.
That’s right, Veronica Lodge and Cheryl Blossom will turn to each other to take on the rather terrible trio of parents: gangster Hiram Lodge, corrupt mayor Hermione Lodge, and the manipulative Penelope Blossom.
What do they have planned for them, however?
The promotional images are rather cryptic (is that a bin or an urn Cheryl is holding?), and the press release for episode 8, Outbreak, when this occurs is of little help.
On the road and running out of places to stay, Jughead (Cole Sprouse) and Archie (KJ Apa) head to Toledo to visit Jughead’s mother Gladys (guest star Gina Gershon) and sister Jellybean (guest star Trinity Likins). Back in Riverdale, Betty (Lili Reinhart) inches closer to uncovering the truth about Griffins & Gargoyles, while Veronica (Camila Mendes) and Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch) take on Hiram (Mark Consuelos), Hermoine (Marisol Nichols) and Penelope (guest star Nathalie Boltt) after more students fall victim to seizures. Madchen Amick, Luke Perry, Skeet Ulrich, Casey Cott, Charles Melton and Vanessa Morgan also star.
What will the girls have in store for their parents?
And will we get any closer to finding out if one of them is the Gargoyle King?
Also in the same week, we finally meet Jug’s mum and sister .
