The horrid town of Riverdale has been put through a lot of torture for the last four seasons! There have been stories and incidents that have caused anarchy and raised violence on the streets of this very town. And all these problems are solved by the only gang. You know their names. Archie Andrews, Jughead Jones, Betty Cooper, and Veronica Lodge, the dynamic four! These four have always been solving problem after the other for the town. In a way, without them, Riverdale would be left to dust. This is why they have now come back after years of graduation to help and reconstruct the town. All the dirty politics and crime that has been taking place for so long now has to come to an end.
With the right gang in town, it looks like it’s possible to take back the town from Hiram Lodge and his goons! After all, it’s not like the fans have seen an old-fashioned rivalry between Hiram and the whole town. During that time, the odds were not in his favor, and an empire started falling apart! Now, let us catch up with the members and see what they are currently up to.
A fresh start for Archie and Veronica!
After several years of their graduation, it was sad to see that Archie and Veronica had to go their different ways. Archie felt a lot of disappointment when he couldn’t graduate with the rest of his friends. In this moment of such haste, Archie decided to join the army and then serve for his life after college.
During this time, Veronica then went on to marry a rich and handsome man named Chad, who was very much like Hiram. Hiram and Chad were almost the same people, as Chad was equally authoritative over Veronica. But like Veronica is, she just kept him in check just like she did her father. Finally, Veronica has filed for divorce after seven long years; she decides to return with Archie. Together, they open the doors to their old relationship. And it looks like for the coming seasons, the romance between Archie and Veronica must boldly go on!
Does Jughead discover the Mothmen? (!)
After graduation, Jughead started his career and went off to become a writer. He published some great novels which were based on his life in Riverdale. Although after living a high and prosperous life in New York, Jughead went broke. But after all the time spent in New York as a mystery thriller writer, he is now back in the town of Riverdale as a teacher for literature.
Along with that, Jughead has been working at Pop’s to earn some extra money while he can. With Pop’s retirement, now her daughter Tabitha has taken over. With the help of Tabitha, Jughead is now on a new mission to discover a supposed alien species, i.e., the Mothmen. Some people have confirmed that they’ve seen the Mothmen abduct some people from the town.
Now, with a lot of Jughead’s suspicions becoming scarier, it can only be accurate about what people say about the Mothmen. Along with that, it looks like there is some romance expected between Jughead and Tabitha. A new chapter for Jughead after Betty Cooper and the school romance.
Betty discovers Glen writing a thesis on the Cooper family!
Like all others, Betty also had a very intense lifestyle after her college. She has been working for the FBI. Along with that, ever since she’s come home, she’s been investigating the disappearance of her dear sister, Polly. But while Polly still hasn’t been found, things are getting much more worrying for the Cooper family.
While working at the FBI, Betty has been working with one of her colleagues, Glen, who has also come down to the town to help Betty with some jurisdictional work. But now, Betty gets to find out something shockingly vile about Glen. It turns out that Glen has been writing a dissertation on the criminal history of the Cooper family. The history includes the Black Mask, Chic, and now maybe even Betty.
Betty feels that she has killer instincts, and she might inherit the wrong values. Eventually, she may end up killing someone and become another criminal in the Cooper family herself. But then again, we never know what Betty may be up to in the coming episodes. Betty herself has been helping around in the community, working for the restoration of several communities. She has also been assisting Jughead in the Mothmen investigation since it happened somewhere around the Lonely Highway. She thinks that the finding of the Mothmen might eventually lead to the finding of Polly. But let’s see what happens next. A lot is about to happen for Betty.
The authoritative antagonist, i.e., Hiram Lodge
Ever since the early years of the show, some great antagonists came in and brought some power to the show. The show first kicked off with the Black Hood. It turns out that he, later on, came out to be Betty’s dad. Even with Chic, who became one of the most exciting villains during the time of Gryphons and Gargoyles.
But there has been one man who has confused us about what side he wants to take. For now, we can assume that he is the main antagonist of the show. Hiram Lodge, the man who has been driven by his money towards corrupting the excellent city of Riverdale. Ever since the gang got back into town, Hiram has taken control of all administration. He has even started building his housing property, which goes by the name of SoDale. The SoDale properties have been one of the primary reasons Riverdale’s economy has been drastically facing a loss.
It doesn’t seem that Hiram doesn’t care for his people. Even with people like Reggie on his side, he’s turning the town to make his favors be done. But with Veronica and the rest of her team coming behind her, it looks like Hiram’s corrupted ventures can once again be stopped.
As we all know, Season 5 has already premiered. In the rush of all that has been happening, we have been waiting for the second part of the fifth season. There is a lot to take place for Archie and the gang to come and heal the town of Riverdale. The next episode is set to premiere in the first or second week of August. Until that time, you, as fans, have quite the time to catch up with all that’s been going on! Archie, Jughead, Betty, and Veronica return for more significant twists.
