Riverdale Season 2 Episode 11 Recap: Is Archie Going Dark?
The drama is never going to stop in the small town of Riverdale.
On Riverdale Season 2 Episode 11, it was all about the history of the town and tryouts for basketball.
When the episode got underway, Archie was practicing for the basketball tryouts, but Agent Adams wanted him to focus his energy on trying to get closer to Hiram Lodge.
This sent Archie towards trying out for the wrestling team instead, but it was not an easy task.
Kevin was quick to take Archie down, and Hiram wondered whether the teenager would be best suited to stick to singing.
He probably should. He’s a great singer, and this complete 180 will not go unnoticed by his friends and even Hiram.
Archie did not give up that easily and returned for another go around.
This time, however, Hiram stepped up to the challenge and took Archie down swiftly.
“I always win,” Hiram said to Archie.
In the aftermath, Archie wanted to know why Hiram took him down straight after, so he turned to the villain for answers.
Hiram admitted that it was all down to Fred sleeping with Hermione while he was locked up, but Archie reiterated that he was the one who was there for Veronica when he was in prison.
The duo continued to bicker, but Veronica stopped them before things took a physical turn.
Hiram then cornered Archie in Pop’s and told him that Veronica would lose interest and he will be waiting when she does.
But things took a turn when Archie beat out Chuck on the final day of tryouts but was Hiram baiting Archie all along to rise from the ashes?
When the two met up at Hiram’s study, Archie was quick to point out that he wants to study business instead of music.
Hiram was shocked but offered to take the kid under his wing. Yeah, this is not going to end well.
Elsewhere, Chic continued to immerse himself in the Cooper family, and Hal did not want him there.
Betty noticed straight off the bat that she and her brother have a lot in common, but she was floored that Chic worked as a webcam boy.
Betty even gave him her old laptop so that he could continue to be employed. It turns out; sex sells in Riverdale.
The kid opened up to Betty that he has darkness inside of him, and it continued to help Betty realize they were cut from the same cloth.
Finally, Jughead was trying to get all of the information he needed from the oldest Serpent in town for his oral exam on Pickens Day.
Jughead got enough information to publish a new article exposing the true horror of the day.
The town threw a party funded by the Lodges to celebrate the event, but the Serpents showed up with their mouths sealed shut by duct tape.
Toni revealed all about Pickens stealing the land from his grandfather’s people, but then Hiram changed things up by being nice about all of it.
But then the town’s statue of Pickens is beheaded.
Things are getting crazy, you guys!
