          Season one of The CW’s drama series, “Riverdale,” comes to a close this Thursday with "Chapter Thirteen: The Sweet Hereafter."  In the season finale, Archie and Veronica continue to grow closer. Betty is tired of her family acting as if nothing has happened and confronts her mother. Jughead finds himself in an unexpected situation, leaving Archie and the gang scrambling. Hermione makes Fred an offer that seems too good to be true. Meanwhile, the truth about Blossom's family business is revealed leaving Cheryl to take matters into her own hands. Madchen Amick and Ashleigh Murray also star.

          As a new school year began, the town of Riverdale was reeling from the recent, tragic death of high school golden boy Jason Blossom, so nothing felt the same. Archie Andrews (KJ Apa) was still the all-American teen, but the summer’s events made him realize that he wanted to pursue a career in music and not follow in his dad’s footsteps despite the sudden end of his forbidden relationship with Riverdale’s young music teacher, Ms. Grundy (Sarah Habel). Archie had no one to mentor him, certainly not singer Josie McCoy (Ashleigh Murray), who was only focused on her band, the soon-to-be-world-famous Pussycats. It all weighed heavily on Archie’s mind, as was his fractured friendship with budding writer and fellow classmate Jughead Jones (Cole Sprouse).

          Meanwhile, girl-next-door Betty Cooper (Lili Reinhart) was anxious to see her crush Archie after being away all summer. However, when a new student, Veronica Lodge (Camila Mendes), arrived in town from New York with her mother Hermione (Marisol Nichols), there became an undeniable spark between Veronica and Archie, even though Veronica didn’t want to risk her new friendship with Betty by making a play for Archie. And then there’s Cheryl Blossom (Madelaine Petsch), Riverdale’s Queen Bee who was happy to stir up trouble amongst Archie, Betty and Veronica, but Cheryl was keeping secrets of her own having to do with the mysterious death of her twin brother, Jason. Riverdale may look like a quiet, sleepy town, but there are dangers in the shadows. Riverdale is based on the characters from Archie comics.
