With one death out the way, the show will end its first season with another major death. "There's a huge twist ending that sets up the second season," EP Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa told EW. "One of our main character's life hangs in the balance."
The finale will also feature Jughead adopting Hot Dog, his dog from the comics, and consuming a hamburger, something that fans have been asking for him to do since the second or third episode.
What about Varchie and Bughead? One of the couples will go all the way and the other will be left in limbo.
Archie (KJ Apa) and Veronica (Camila Mendes) continue to grow closer. Betty (Lili Reinhart) is tired of her family acting as if nothing has happened and confronts her mother. Jughead (Cole Sprouse) finds himself in an unexpected situation, leaving Archie and the gang scrambling. Hermione (Marisol Nichols) makes Fred (Luke Perry) an offer that seems too good to be true. Meanwhile, the truth about Blossom’s family business is revealed leaving Cheryl (Madelain Petsch) to take matters into her own hands. Madchen Amick and Ashleigh Murray also star.
Lee Toland Krieger directed the episode written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.
