Warning: This article contains spoilers for Riverdale.
Riverdale closed out its first season with a wild season finale in spite of the Archie comics adaptation having previously solved Jason Blossom’s murder in last week’s episode. As series creator and showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa hinted last week, the season finale “Chapter Thirteen: The Sweet Hereafter” opened up a whole new can of worms with the resolution of Jason’s murder. While several questions were raised surrounding the fallout from that crime, Riverdale moved forward with a new murder, the death of a prominent character, and, as Aguirre-Sacasa teases, that tragedy will have long-lasting repercussions all through season 2 of Riverdale.
