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). Meanwhile, Betty (Lili Reinhart) and Jughead’s (Cole Sprouse) investigation into Jason’s death brings them to a home for troubled youth and face-to-face with Polly (guest star Tiera Skovbye). Just as her relationship with her mother was on the upswing, an unexpected betrayal sends Veronica (Camila Mendes) spiraling, while Josie deals with her own pressures at home after her overbearing father returns for her performance at the variety show.

A brand new episode of Riverdale aired last night– an amazing episode and so far, my favorite. We got to see Veronica and Betty being partners in crime, and looks like Hermione Lodge is hiding something…? Maybe? I guess we’ll be finding more next week!

COMIC BOOK — Overall, the main focus of Riverdale has been on the events of its teenage cast. But the show’s crop of adult characters have their fair share of intrigue as well, with many of the parents and teachers looking more suspicious as the weeks go on.

One of the most prominent storylines has been the mysterious backstory of the Lodge family. While their daughter, Veronica, is dealing with the various events at Riverdale High, Hiram and Hermione Lodge have proved to have their own drama as well.

Hiram – who has yet to be seen on the show – is in jail for embezzlement and fraud, leaving Hermione to carry the family on her own. But, as was revealed in the pilot, Hiram left a small fortune of cash for Hermione. And in this week’s episode, we saw her putting it to use, bribing both Mayor McCoy and the South Side Serpents to help Lodge Industries be able to purchase the town drive-in theater.

Camila Mendes, who plays Veronica on the show, mentioned to that her character will become a little more aware of her parents’ mystery. “I wouldn’t say she gets sucked into it, but she involves herself in it, and is constantly trying to uncover the truth, because her parents are kind of playing her.”

With Hermione now working at Pop’s to ‘make ends meet’ – something out of character for the socialite – Veronica might become a little wary of what her mother tells her.

“Her mom’s always trying to act like nothing is going on, and she keeps trying to play everything off like it’s nothing.” Mendes explains, “And Veronica wants to believe her but doesn’t.”

And, as Mendes revealed, Veronica’s first step for investigating this involved recruiting some of her classmates to help. “I think she teams up with her friends to investigate the truth firsthand and be like, I’m going to see what’s up.”
