The CW’s Riverdale season two episode 19 began with Cheryl singing at Midge’s funeral and declaring the Vixens will not stop looking for the person who killed their friend. The episode also found poor Archie being beaten and held hostage by Nick St. Clair. Nick demanded Veronica and the Lodges hand over a cool million dollars…or else. Unfortunately for Archie, Hiram refused to make a deal or part with that much money. Fortunately, Veronica came to the rescue and actually turned the tables on the abusive Nick, forcing his family into parting with a million to guarantee his safety.
Meanwhile, Jughead and Betty visited the Sisters of the Quiet Mercy and discovered Chic is not Betty’s brother! The nun showed them a photo of Betty’s brother and the photo was definitely not of Chic. A confrontation with Betty’s imposter brother led to Chic being tied up in the basement. He finally admitted he met the real Charles and they were friends. One day Charles tried to reunite with his mom but Alice apparently slammed the door in his face. He was so despondent about being sent away that he overdosed on Jingle Jangle.
Alice remembered the boy and blamed herself for Charles’ death. She immediately headed off to FP’s place and confessed she killed their son! FP made Jughead leave the Cooper place so Betty and Alice ccould figure out how they wanted to handle Chic. And boy did Betty come up with a plan… She decided to let the Black Hood – yes, Archie was right and the Black Hood is alive and well – take care of Chic.
