The CW’s Riverdale season three episode 10 answered the question of whether Archie survived the bear attack fairly quickly. Of course he did…but he came back from his near-death experience a changed man. How do we know he’s been altered from his latest brush with death? Because his hair’s darker and the angst-factor has been cranked up to 10.
Episode 10 also found Betty reconnecting with her serial killer dad and learning her mom drained her college fund to help The Farm. Tall Boy briefly returned from the dead to masquerade as the Gargoyle King before being accidentally shot dead (for real, this time) by Fangs and Sweet Pea. And, someone shot Hiram. Veronica jumps to the conclusion that Archie might be the shooter, driving the couple further apart. Hiram’s shooting might be the straw that breaks ‘Varchie’s back. The episode ended with the reveal that FP is the new sheriff. Yes, you read that right. FP is the sheriff of Riverdale.
