The CW’s Riverdale continues season three with episode three set to air October 24, 2018. But before we look ahead at episode three, let’s take a brief look back at season three episode two.
Archie’s in juvenile hall and he’s got a roommate named Mad Dog who passes on his jailhouse wisdom, warning Archie to watch out for his new sneakers. Which, of course, the Serpents proceed to steal. Archie’s got major problems with the Serpents, even though he’s sort of an honorary one.
So, what does Archie do about all this tension in juvenile hall? He gives his fellow inmates a pep talk and suggests they engage in a friendly game of football. And to top it off, Veronica and the River Vixens show up and perform a cheer to the tune of “Jailhouse Rock” right outside the fence. Speaking of Veronica, her dad is definitely not into his daughter visiting Archie while he’s locked up.
Elsewhere, Jughead and Betty begin their new investigation into the creepy and mysterious Gargoyle King. Plus, Betty’s beginning to realize her mom and sister have joined a bizarre cult.
Up next, season three episode three directed by Jeff Hunt from a script by Aaron Allen.
