8. How did the real Charles survive?
One of the biggest reveals of Riverdale season 3 is that Betty’s brother Charles is actually alive. Not only that, he’s working for the FBI and has recruited Alice to help him catch Edgar.
Betty and Jughead discover this together when they are being questioned by Charles in Betty’s former house (not belonging to Jughead and his dad F.P.) about the disappearance of everyone at The Farm. Betty inquires that Charles look familiar and he reveals himself to be Betty’s biological older brother. While we’re thrilled to know that disastrous Chic failed to destroy one of the good things in his path, no one knows how Charles managed to survive the ordeal.
Chic first claimed that Charles had died of an overdose after being rejected by Alice during his visit to the house. This later proved to be untrue as both Chic’s neighbor and Chic admitted that he had accidentally killed Charles during one of their many volatile fights as roommates. Chic’s neighbor even reported seeing Chic getting rid of sheets and clothes with lots of blood on them. If Charles did survive, how did Chic not know about it? Or is it possible that Chic wanted Charles’ life from the beginning and lied about his death? Anything is possible.
