The hunt for Jason Blossom’s killer leads Jughead and Betty down an unexpected path in Riverdale‘s ‘Faster, Pussycats! Kill! Kill!.’ The duo continue their investigation in a home for troubled youth. Betty will finally come face to face with her sister Polly, who has been hinted at in the first couple episodes as being involved with Jason.
And before you freak out and wonder why Jughead is so lovingly holding Betty’s face in one of these photos…this could just be a friend comforting another after being confronted with the pain of the past and a deteriorating sister. Even Archie looking at Veronica with wonder in his gaze, could be the beginning of their friendship blossoming before our eyes.
The real photo that struck a cord was Fred Andrews watching his kid up on stage during the annual variety show. He’s felt a change in his son over the last couple of months, a change he couldn’t understand. I think it took him until this moment to realize how amazing his son is and how proud he is that Archie’s taken a chance on something so scary, new, and thrilling.
Check out the synopsis:
ROMANCES AND RIVALRIES — With Riverdale High’s annual variety show around the corner, Valerie’s (guest star Hayley Law) efforts to help Archie (KJ Apa) prepare for his big performance lead to some major fallout between her and Josie (Ashleigh Murray).
