Prepare For A Darker Riverdale
The second season trailer of Riverdale was finally released, and it looks even darker than the first.
The last episode left us off with a major cliffhanger, as we didn’t know whether or not Archie’s dad survived that gunshot in Pop’s diner. In the opening scene of the trailer, Archie and the gang are frantically waiting at the hospital. It’s not clear whether or not his dad survived, but it’s pretty clear that things will turn for the worse in Riverdale.
During this year’s Comic Con panel, there were many behind the set details that were revealed. According to Entertainment Weekly, Veronica’s father, Hiram Lodge, play a pretty significant part in the plot development. Veronica will be torn between wanting to be a Lodge and helping them realize that they could be the normal family she always hoped they could be. On the other hand, the arrival of Veronica’s ex-boyfriend will appeal to her dark side.
The highly anticipated new character of the season, Toni Topaz, will be setting some trouble between Jughead and Betty, especially since she will be guiding Jughead into the world of the Southside Serpents. As a bisexual character, Toni will also be “trouble for a lot of the people on this panel”.
There’s going to be some big changes in the next season, but we’re just going to have to wait until October 11th.
