“Riverdale” prides itself on outrageous moments — and the Season 3 premiere proves the buzzy series is as wild as ever. Spoilers for the episode are ahead.
In case you need a refresher, Season 2 of “Riverdale” really wanted you to forget the show’s wholesome “Archie” comic-book roots. Archie was arrested for murder (framed by Mark Consuelos’ devious Hiram Lodge), and fans learned that Betty’s dad was the real Black Hood serial killer.
The mayhem continues in Season 3’s opener, “Chapter Thirty-Six: Labor Day.”Archie is on trial, and the stress of the preceding few months has taken a toll on Betty: She’s secretly become a drug addict.
