The CW has released the official synopsis for "The Master," the March 27 episode of Riverdale.

The episode is named after the Paul Thomas Anderson film, which stars Joaquin Phoenix as boozy drifter struggling with the trauma of World War II.

In this one, Cheryl teams up with Betty, while Archie and Veronica come together and Jughead squares off with the mysterious new drug lord in town: his mother.
