*Warning! Spoiler Alert*
Based on the famous comic series, Archie, yet set around a much darker plot, Riverdale is an American television series adapted by The CW. Riverdale fans have enjoyed the entertaining content provided by the show and left the fans wanting more – the second season aired a mid-season finale and is now returning with eight new episodes.
Netflix users from around the world can hardly wait. Season 1 was an absolute binge-watch and fans loved it. To spice things up, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who runs the show, seemed confident about the many surprises that are hidden behind the curtain.
When asked about his thoughts on Riverdale, he said “The second half of the season two gets back to a little bit of Riverdale basics which is focused on stories at the school, kind of getting back in deep on the relationships and the friendships. There’s still going to be a pulpy noir element to the second half, but there will be a resurgence of high school hijinks.”
Riverdale needs to hurry up been waiting a month 😩

Previously on Riverdale
Veronica Has Grown Up
V notices Betty and Archie exchange intimate giggles. She feels broken but finds it difficult to move past him. Luckily, she finds an opportunity to regain a place in Archie’s heart. Fred’s insane medical bill of $86,000 leaves the Andrew family hopeless.
At first, Veronica wants her dad to pay up for the medical expenses, but he disagrees. Veronica discovers a deed to Pop’s Diner, which Hiram Lodge specifically promised he didn’t purchase. Veronica ends up stealing Hermione’s American Excess card to pay for Fred.
Turns out that Hermione has fraud protection. Now the Lodge family needs to have a chat together and discuss the concealed secrets of their family. Veronica seems to be all in if Fred can keep the money and her father seemed to have no problems with that.
Cheryl Sees Mommy Kissing Santa Claus
Cheryl had very little appearances, especially in the last episode. But even the few appearances she made managed for her to steal the show. The Blossom family is struggling hard to make ends meet, so Cheryl wants her mom to talk to Mr. Lodge for a job.
It seemed that Penelope did take Cheryl’s advice, as she was seen kissing and making out with a guy dressed as Santa Claus.
Jughead Goes Rogue
Jughead and FP kidnap Penny Peabody and bring her to Greendale. They seemed considerate and cautious and they put a sack around her head while they drove her out of town. That’s when we get to see Jughead as a full-blown gang member.
Peabody points out that FP has a serpent tattoo on her body, making her untouchable. Jughead loses his mind and says “It’s time you learned that tattoo doesn’t make you a Serpent.” He then cuts off and removed a piece of FP’s skin which had the tattoo.
With this, FP is pissed. And now there is no coming back for Jughead!
The Black Hood Is Unmasked
The last and perhaps the most important bit of Riverdale; Archie and Betty unmask the Black Hood. Archie was worried that he might fall victim to Black Hood. They get even more frightened when Betty receives a package containing a severed finger.
Archie and Betty are led to a graveyard, and while they are digging a grave, as instructed by the Black Hood, the killer arrives with a gun. He forces Archie into the box and instructs Betty to fill up the hole with dirt.
In the background, we hear police sirens, which distract Black Hood. Betty seized the moment and knocked out Black Hood. Later, Sheriff Keller chases and shoots Black Hood. Turns out that Mr. Svenson is the Black Hood, which was a disturbing revelation.

What to Expect?
We were finally told that the high-school janitor was the person behind the Black Hood. We were also told that his family was murdered by the Riverdale Reaper. What remains to be seen is if Black Hood is still at large.
Previously, we saw Archie and Veronica share a kiss and while they were at it, someone was taking pictures. Now, who could that be? Can it be Black Hood or someone else with the intent to blackmail them? Or is it someone who wants to hurt Betty by showing these pictures?
The most interesting detail which everyone is interested in is the nature of the Lodge’s business. For some reason, Veronica’s parents decide to let her know about some “shady” business deals. We don’t get to know what exactly those deals are, except that Veronica could participate as long as she doesn’t do anything illegal herself.
