The CW is putting Riverdale on hold again, but thankfully this break will not be as long as the three-week sabbatical in March. The network has opted to air a TV special called H1Z1: Fight For The Crown, a video game tournament, instead of the next episode of the Archie series. “Chapter Eleven: To Riverdale And Back Again” will finally air on Thursday, April 27 at 9 p.m. ET. Click here for a preview of the episode.
In the previous episode of Riverdale, “Chapter Ten: The Lost Weekend,” it was Betty’s turn to learn that hosting parties in this town is never a good idea. She tried desperately to give Jughead a good birthday party, but he never wanted one. To make mattes worse, Chuck Clayton (Jordan Calloway) showed up with Cheryl, turning the party into a booze-filled night of underage drinking and fighting. Meanwhile, Archie tried to convince his father to hold off on divorcing his mom, Mary (Molly Ringwald).
In “To Riverdale And Back Again,” Mary tells Archie that she thinks he would be better off with her in Chicago. Meanwhile, Betty tries to juggle planning for Homecoming and investigating Jason Blossom’s murder. She’s asked her mom Alice to help, but when Alice asks Archie and Veronica for help, Betty gets mad. Jughead also sees that his dad FP (Skeet Ulrich) is trying to change his ways and wonders if his father is really turning over a new leaf.
After “To Riverdale And Back Again” airs, there are only two more episodes left! The season one finale of Riverdale will air on May 11, 2017.
Before the first season ends, there will likely be another major death. during WonderCon earlier this month, KJ Apa, who plays Archie, and Luke Perry, who plays Fred, teased another death, but won’t say who it is. Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa told Teen Vogue that there’s some “truth” to that.
