Riverdale fans are gearing up for the show's second-annual music episode, and speculating what kind of drama and major moments just might be in store. In the meantime, The CW has released a pretty awesome poster for the event episode.
The poster for "Chapter Fifty-One: Big Fun", which you can check out below, features Veronica Lodge (Camila Mendes) as Heather McNamara, Cheryl Blossom (Madelaine Petsch) as Heather Chandler, Betty Cooper (Lili Reinhart) as Heather Duke, and Josie McCoy (Ashleigh Murray) as Veronica Sawyer. You can check it out below.
In the original Heathers film, Westerberg High is ruled by a shoulder-padded, scrunchie-wearing junta: Heather, Heather, and Heather, the hottest and cruelest girls in all of Ohio. But misfit Veronica Sawyer rejects their evil regime for a new boyfriend, the dark and sexy stranger J.D., who plans to put the Heathers in their place - six feet under.
The episode's title, "Big Fun", references a fictional band within the Heathers movie, which ultimately becomes successful thanks to their song "Teenage Suicide, Don't Do It". Heathers: The Musical features a song named "Big Fun", which is set around a rather debaucherous high school party. So either way, Riverdale fans can probably expect that title to be subverted in one way or another.
And considering the fact that last year's musical ended in a gnarly death - and the nature of Heathers itself - it's safe to assume that viewers should expect the unexpected regarding the episode.
You can check out the synopsis for "Big Fun" below!
"RIVERDALE HIGH PRESENTS "HEATHERS: THE MUSICAL"
As rehearsals for this year's musical "Heathers: The Musical" get underway, Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch), as queen bee Heather Chandler, channels her own HBIC to deal with a recent fallout.
Meanwhile, Betty (Lili Reinhart) grows increasingly annoyed by Evelyn's (guest star Zoe De Grand'Maison) involvement with the musical – as well as the lives of her friends. Elsewhere, Veronica (Camila Mendes) learns some devastating news about her family, and Archie (KJ Apa) and Josie (Ashleigh Murray) make a decision about their future.
Lastly, Jughead (Cole Sprouse) makes a surprising move against Gladys (guest star Gina Gershon). Marisol Nichols, Mark Consuelos, Skeet Ulrich, Casey Cott, Charles Melton and Vanessa Morgan also star.
Maggie Kiley directed the episode written by Tessa Leigh Williams."
