Our story is about a town, a small town, and the people who live in the town. From a distance, it presents itself like so many other small towns all over the world; safe, decent, innocent. Get closer, though, and you start seeing the shadows underneath. The name of our town is Riverdale–Jughead Jones

SPOILERS FOR SEASON 1 AHEAD: The season 1 finale revealed that Clifford Blossom killed his son, while F.P. Jones disposed of Jason’s body. The motive: Jason found out the real family business and it ain’t maple syrup. Blossom was funneling heroin into Riverdale. Clifford got what was coming to him; he committed suicide, or so it seems for now. The Blossom women could have something to do with Clifford’s death, but nothing has been officially stated. Now, let’s see what season 2 has in store for us!
Riverdale picks up after the season 1 finale, where Fred Andrews was gunned down in front Archie. For the first time, Archie was scared that the gunman would come back. Riverdale is getting darker; as Jug stated, “This could have been a hit.” But who would want to kill Fred Andrews? One prime suspect would be Hiram Lodge, Veronica’s dad. Fred and Hermione got a little too close for comfort in season 1. So close that Hiram sent his goon squad to shake up Andrews Construction. What will happen when he finds out that Archie is dating his daughter?
