The CW has released a batch of photos for "Chapter One Hundred and Two: Death at a Funeral", the seventh episode of Riverdale's sixth season. The episode's details tease that Archie Andrews (KJ Apa) seems to have survived the explosion orchestrated by Hiram Lodge (Mark Consuelos) in the Season 5 finale, although it's unclear what that will mean for Betty Cooper (Lili Reinhart), who was in the same room as it occurred. Beyond that, the synopsis teases tension at Riverdale's town hall meeting, which will prompt the return of Hermione Lodge (Marisol Nichols), who has been guest starring on the series since departing as a series regular at the end of Season 4.
"Part of life in Riverdale — and part of growing up — is saying goodbye to people," showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa said in a statement when the exits were first announced. "I'm grateful to Skeet [Ulrich] and Marisol for their incredible work on the show these last four years, and we all wish them well on their future endeavors. F.P. and Hermione will never be far from our hearts. And, of course, they're always welcome back in Riverdale."
