The CW‘s Riverdale has a habit of giving the fans what they want and delivering it with ease, and episode 4 of the third season will be no different.
In the second season, we were given many fandom references, along with a musical episode. Since the beginning, fans have been fascinated with the pasts of the main character’s parents. We know that some of them have sketchy pasts, with the law, with each other, and many more secrets live in the halls of Riverdale High from the time Fred Andrews, Alice Smith, FP Jones, Hermione Gomez, and many others attended there.
In this season of Riverdale, there is a supernatural theme and mystery involving the board game, Gryphons & Gargoyles. After the deaths of two classmates, seemingly suicides, Betty and Jughead believe that there is more than meets the eye. Upon investigation, they will discover that there was a similar murder involving Gryphons & Gargoyles when their parents were their age, thus the flashback.
We will see the cast of youngsters playing their parents in the early 90s. With Kj Apa as Fred, Lili Reinhart as Alice, Cole Sprouse as FP, Camila Mendes as Hermione, Madelaine Petsch as Penelope, Ashleigh Murray as Sierra, Casey Cott as Tom, Charles Melton as Marty, and the return of Trevor Stines (Jason Blossom) as Clifford. It is not confirmed if a young Mary Andrews (Archie’s mom) will make an appearance (although, some have speculated that Madelaine Petsch will be playing not only Penelope but Mary as well), but a young Hiram Lodge will be present, with Mark Consuelos’ (Hiram Lodge) son, Michael Consuelos playing the “mobster” as a teen.
The episode is titled “The Midnight Club”, seemingly a play on “The Breakfast Club”. It is episode 4 of season 3 of Riverdale on the CW and airs Wednesday, October 31, 2018.
