Riverdale's fourth season is officially in full swing, and it looks like things are about to get eventful for the show's teenage ensemble. Over the weekend, The CW released a batch of photos for "Chapter Sixty: Dog Day Afternoon", the third episode of the show's fourth season. The photos showcase Archie (KJ Apa), Veronica Lodge (Camila Mendes), and some of Riverdale High's other students throwing a car wash fundraiser at Pop's, which appears to get as messy as you'd expect. The episode is also expected to feature Betty Cooper (Lili Reinhart) confronting The Farm, the cult-like group that has influenced her family almost since the show's inception.
"That story’s not over." showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa told Entertainment Weekly of how The Farm would factor into Season 4. "Edgar’s not in jail, and Alice is MIA. We are going to resolve that story. It’s not going to be the season-long story, though. We’re going to resolve it pretty quickly, and I think what we’re really excited to play is the idea that Alice has her lost son back and that Betty has her half-brother, Jughead has his half-brother. So it’s not like Alice is going to be missing for most of the season or that the Farm is going to continue for most of the season. That is an outstanding thing, though."
