The CW has released photos for "Chapter Nine: Wishin' & a Hopin,'" the upcoming April 16 episode of Katy Keene's first season. Over the course of the series' debut season thus far, fans have seen Katy (Lucy Hale) and her friends each face personal and professional challenges in their pursuit of their dreams of fame and success, but this upcoming episode will see them deal with some new struggles, including a crisis of confidence for Katy and a clash of vision for Josie (Ashleigh Murray) who is being faced with a conflicting idea of what new version of The Pussycats should be.
And when it comes to The Pussycats, the photos from the episode tease some pretty tense moments between not just Josie and Alex (Lucien Laviscount) but Alex and his father as well. As fans of Riverdale may recall, The Pussycats was Josie's original band consisting of Josie along with Valerie (Hayley Law) and Melody (Asha Bromfield), though after being featured during the show's first season, Valerie and Melody were slowly phased out of the show. By the time Josie left Riverdale, The Pussycats hadn't been seen on screen for some time.
