'Riverdale': "Chapter Thirty: The Noose Tightens" Synopsis Released

The CW has released the official synopsis for March 28's episode of Riverdale, titled “Chapter Thirty: The Noose Tightens.”

In the episode, both the town and the school are gripped by local politics, with the student council election taking place at the same time as the mayoral election to replace Sierra McCoy.

There's bigger fish to fry, though, as organized crime families, presumably still stung from the death of Papa Poutine, converge on Riverdale.

And, yes, the thing that got teased last night appears be be bearing fruit as the synopsis mentions some trouble for the Cooper family...!

You can see the official synopsis below.

UNWELCOMED GUESTS — Just as the town’s mayoral race gets underway, Riverdale High’s own student council election heats up. Archie (KJ Apa) steps up to help after learning that Hiram’s (Mark Consuelos) mobster associates have come to Riverdale to stir up some trouble.

Meanwhile, things take a dangerous turn for Alice (Madchen Amick), Betty (Lili Reinhart) and Chic (guest star Hart Denton) when an unexpected guest shows up at the Cooper residence. Finally, Toni (guest star Vanessa Morgan), Veronica (Camila Mendes) and Josie (Ashleigh Murray) team up to solve a strange mystery involving Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch).

Cole Sprouse, Marisol Nichols, Luke Perry, Skeet Ulrich and Casey Cott also star.
