RECAP: In the first season of Riverdale, the town of Riverdale was reeling from the recent, tragic death of high school golden boy Jason Blossom. The summer’s events made all-American teen Archie Andrews realize that he wants to pursue a career in music, but his fractured friendship with writer Jughead Jones, and singer Josie McCoy’s focus on her own band (the soon-to-be world-famous Pussycats) left him without a mentor.
Meanwhile, girl-next-door Betty Cooper was not quite ready to reveal her true feelings for Archie, even though there was an undeniable spark between new student, Veronica Lodge and her crush, Archie. And then there’s Cheryl Blossom, Riverdale’s Queen Bee who’s happy to stir up trouble amongst Archie, Betty and Veronica, while keeping secrets of her own. And the parents have their own hidden truths as well. Riverdale may look like a quiet, sleepy town, but there are dangers in the shadows.
Coming into the second season, the gang’s troubles continue and it looks like there’s more to come.
