In the latest episode of Riverdale, Betty and Jughead attempt to confront the Gargoyle King, while Mary returns to talk Archie out of boxing.

It’s prom night on Riverdale, and even though these kids are always doing to dances and parties and illegal underground speakeasies, it’s still going to be a special night. Of course, the Gargoyle King has returned, and Betty and Jughead have decided to confront the thorny killer themselves. However, their plan takes an unexpected turn. Let’s hope that it’s a positive unexpected turn that leads to the King finally getting unmasked.

At the same time that she’s taking on the Gargoyle King, Betty must contend with the surprising news regarding her father. Last week, Hal requested a transfer to Hiram’s swanky prison, but he and many other inmates never made it. That’s your only spoiler-free hint. Meanwhile, Mary (Molly Ringwald) returns to town as Archie continues to take boxing too far, and Cheryl’s campaign for prom queen hits a snag that could cost her the crown.
