The CW’s Riverdale isn’t playing around, with the series getting darker each episode. The dramatic series based on the Archie Comics hasn’t quite settled on a tone to adapt for the season, but the writers should be applauded for not shying away from difficult and timely subject matter. Plus, Riverdale‘s becoming a must-see just to check out the relationship developing between Lili Reinhart as Betty and Camila Mendes as Veronica.
Episode four titled ‘The Last Picture Show’ will air on February 16, 2017. Mark Piznarski directed the episode from a script by Michael Grassi. The Riverdale cast includes KJ Apa as Archie Andrews, Lili Reinhart as Betty Cooper, Camila Mendes as Veronica Lodge, Cole Sprouse as Jughead Jones, Madelaine Petsch as Cheryl Blossom, Marisol Nichols as Hermione Lodge, Mӓdchen Amick as Alice Cooper, Luke Perry as Fred Andrews, and Ashleigh Murray as Josie McCoy.
The ‘Chapter Four: The Last Picture Show’ Plot: HOLDING ON — When Jughead (Sprouse) learns that an anonymous buyer has plans to tear down the local drive-in, he fights desperately to keep it open.
