When Riverdale finds its way back onto The CW come Wednesday, April 17, it’s going to be doing so with an episode about fighting. Of course, fighting can transpire in a number of different forms.
For Archie Andrews, a big part of what you’re going to be seeing coming up his him preparing for a boxing tournament. While on the surface (i.e. in this promo) it may seem as though he’s ready and rarin’ to go, there’s a difference between a successful training montage/having the support of Veronica and the actual results when the matches get closer to it beginning. We do understand a part of this if you’re Archie — don’t you want to do everything that you can to let off some steam after everything that you’ve gone through this season? This just feels like the sort of thing that ends up having a very different result than originally intended … which is something that you could also say about a lot of the different stories you’re getting a chance to see across the board this year.
Below, CarterMatt offers up the official Riverdale season 3 episode 18 synopsis with some additional insight as to what’s coming up next:
REMATCH – When a tainted batch of fizzle rocks makes its way through Riverdale, Jughead (Cole Sprouse) and FP (Skeet Ulrich) set out to find who’s responsible. After asking Veronica (Camila Mendes) to help get him into an upcoming boxing tournament, Archie (KJ Apa) quickly learns he may be in over his head. Elsewhere, Betty (Lili Reinhart) makes one last attempt to rescue Alice (Madchen Amick) from The Farm’s grip, and Toni (Vanessa Morgan) becomes unsettled by a sudden change in Cheryl’s (Madelaine Petsch) behavior. Luke Perry, Ashleigh Murray and Casey Cott also star. Gabriel Correa directed the episode written by Brian E. Patterson & Arabella Anderson (#318). Original airdate 4/17/2019.
One more thing that you probably should be thinking about at the moment after reading that is the state of Betty, who is definitely suffering and our heart goes out to her in more ways than we can possibly express. She’s losing so much of what she loves to The Farm and no matter what seems to happen with her, nothing is making the clamp that it has on her life any easier. In our mind, this is the impetus behind what we see with her threat at the end of the promo. It’s just all of that anger and rage over the past several episodes rising to the forefront.
On a more emotional note, does anyone get choked up when they just see Luke Perry’s name listed in the cast, like it is above? It’s going to be tough when we get to the point where the show has to say goodbye to the Fred Andrews character overall.
