Riverdale: 100th Episode Photos Tease Return to Classic Archie
The CW has released a new batch of photos for "Chapter One Hundred: The Jughead Paradox", the fifth episode of Riverdale's sixth season. The episode is expected to serve as the finale for the currently-ongoing "Rivervale" event, which has brought a spooky and bizarre approach to the Town with Pep. Given how eccentric the event has gone so far — with human sacrifices, ancient curses, the literal Devil, and so much more — it was safe to assume the episode would get surreal, and it definitely looks like that's the case. The episode is expected to feature a return to the "Classic Archie" alternate reality, which was first teased in a dream sequence in Season 1. Based on the photos, it looks like even more characters will be getting comic-accurate twists on their looks — and real Archie comics will even appear in the episode.
Still, given Rivervale, it's safe to assume things will get sinister or otherworldly in some way.
"[These new episodes] are firmly in the horror genre," showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa previously teased to TVLine. "Things are a little bit darker, a little bit weirder, a little more twisted in Rivervale."
