Another longer synopsis for tonight reads: “Riverdale High prepares for the championship football game against Stonewall Prep; and Betty gets to work on a story about the rivalry between the schools. Archie is conflicted when Mary tells him about Uncle Frank’s troubled past. Cheryl goes head to head with Ms. Appleyard, the school’s new cheerleading coach, and Veronica hits a road block with her latest Luna Rum recipe. Finally, Jughead is forced to pick a side after the perks of attending Stonewall Prep interfere with his personal life.”
Episode 9 was called “Tangerine.”
Spoilers for Season 4 through Episode 9 are below.
In Episode 9, we were left with a big cliffhanger. The episode flashed forward to Betty looking at her hands, which were holding bloody rocks, and Archie yelling, “Betty, what did you do?!” Jughead was on the ground with a head wound and Archie was saying that Jughead was dead. So now viewers are wondering if Betty killed Jughead, or if this is some kind of misdirect. In fact, a lot of viewers don’t believe Jughead is actually dead at all, and maybe this is all a setup for someone else. But what’s actually going to happen remains to be seen.
