The episode ended with Archie telling Betty and Jughead that he overheard a conversation that makes him think Cheryl’s dad Clifford helped send Veronica’s father Hiram to jail. This suddenly Hiram Lodge a motive to kill Jason Blossom!
In “The Lost weekend,” Fred tries to finalize his divorce from Archie’s mom Mary, while Archie tries to prove to Valerie that he still cares for her. In the middle of all this, Archie tries to throw Jughead a birthday party. Hasn’t anyone on this show learned that nothing good happens at a party?
