The “Chapter Fifteen: Nighthawks” Plot: SAVING POP’S — With the gunman still at large and the residents of Riverdale on edge, Betty (Reinhart) leads the charge to save Pop’s after learning that the diner may be forced to close its doors forever. Meanwhile, the gang becomes increasingly concerned for Archie’s (Apa) well being after noticing a string of unusual behavior from him. Elsewhere, Betty and Veronica (Mendes) approach Cheryl (Petsch) and Josie (Murray) for their help saving Pop’s, while Jughead’s (Sprouse) attempt to find FP (Skeet Ulrich) a new lawyer may have some serious repercussions.
