The CW has released a teaser trailer for "Chapter Ninety-Three: Dance of Death", the seventeenth episode of Riverdale's fifth season. The preview hints at some intense new escalations in the series' ever-growing number of plotlines, particularly an explosion in the Blossom family mines in an attempt to harvest palladium before Hiram Lodge (Mark Consuelos) can get to it. If the footage is any indication, that could turn tragic, and Veronica Lodge (Camila Mendes) isn't afraid to threaten her father about Archie Andrews (K.J. Apa) and company's fate.
The episode is also expected to focus on Cheryl Blossom's newfound sainthood, which she obtained after completing three miracles with Kevin Keller (Casey Cott) by her side. Apparently, that ordeal will create a rift when Penelope Blossom (Nathalie Boltt) plants doubt in Kevin's mind.
"Kevin obviously is going through something, and Cheryl is starting a ministry, and that's really a perfect equation for Kevin to be swindled into a cult-y, ministry type situation as we saw during season three," Cott explained in a recent interview with E! Online. "Kevin is going to get involved in some way. It's actually really, really fun. We had a lot of fun shooting the scenes that you will see. Kevin's got some fun outfits coming up, I'll leave it at that."
