Season 2 of “Riverdale” ends with a bang.
The CW’s neon-dipped cleaning soap opera has introduced a loopy twist in each episode this season. Lengthy misplaced brothers? Certain. Serial killer fathers? Completely.
However Wednesday evening’s season finale, “Chapter Thirty-5: Courageous New World,” throws a curveball within the type of a minor character you forgot about: Cassidy.
Archie wins the election to be Riverdale Excessive College’s scholar physique president — however proper as he’s getting sworn in, he’s dramatically arrested in entrance of the entire college.
Hiram Lodge (Mark Consuelos) smirks from the shadows, leaving little doubt as to who orchestrated this.
The fees? Murdering Cassidy.
Cassidy (Harrison MacDonald) was a retailer clerk whom the gang met once they took a journey to the Lodge’s weekend cabin again in “Chapter Twenty-Seven: The Hills Have Eyes.”
After Cassidy burgles their place, Archie chases him via the woods till they bumped into Andre (Stephan Miers), the Lodge’s capo.
Andre tells Archie to depart, and a shot rings out. The implication is that Andre killed Cassidy.
Andre can be ostensibly lifeless by the tip of Season 2 — however since that is “Riverdale,” he may need recovered off-screen for the needs of dramatically reappearing in Season 3. Perhaps he was Betty’s long-lost brother all alongside.
Regardless, Archie didn’t do the deed, however as Season 2 ends, he’s in scorching water for it. Perhaps he’ll share a jail cell with Betty’s father.
