Jughead, FP and Gladys Jones begin a quest to save Jellybean from the Gargoyle Gang and Betty discovers some major information about Evelyn Evernever's past in the trailer for Riverdale season 3, episode 19, 'Fear The Reaper'.

Just when you thought we'd finally got rid of the Gargoyle King on Riverdale, he made a terrifying return at the end of season 3, episode 18 - and it looks like he's about to begin his torment of a fan-favourite character who goes by the name of... Jellybean Jones.

The next episode of Riverdale, titled 'Fear The Reaper', will air on Wednesday 24th April.

The synopsis for the episode reads: "When Jellybean goes missing, Jughead, Gladys and FP follow a series of cryptic clues to get her home. Elsewhere, Archie faces the fallout from his latest boxing match, while Betty makes a major discovery about Evelyn’s past. Finally, Josie makes a big decision about her future."

Luke Perry will appear in this episode as Fred Andrews.

What happens in Riverdale 3x19? Time to analyse every single frame of that extended trailer...

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but... Gryphons and Gargoyles is unfortunately back on its bullshit. As is the Gargoyle King. And so begins the start of another quest. FP, Gladys and Jughead sit down and partake in the most dimly lit game of G&G this show has ever seen in a bid to find out where Jellybean has been taken by the Gargoyle King.

Gladys' cook Kurtz looks like the one in charge of this whole shebang but is Gladys behind the kidnapping of her own daughter or have her own gang turned their backs on her already!? If it's the latter, I'm not saying it's what she deserves but... it's what she deserves.

Also, odds on the presumed dead Penny Peabody having anything to do with this?


Betty, you in danger girl...

After letting her mum Alice go free into the arms of the cult, it looks like Betty gets herself into another spot of bother when she's chased down the street by eight Farmies dressed in their creepy white baptism outfits. Whatever she found out about Evelyn, Evelyn clearly doesn't want her to know.


All these serpents and yet Elio is the biggest snake of all.

Poor sweet innocent baby boy Archie manages to get himself stitched up by Veronica's corrupt pal Elio, which ends up in a sting on his gym. In 3x18, Archie knocks out Elio's boxer Randy Ronson, who had taken a dodgy batch of Fizzle Rocks before the game. He's like, totally dead and it looks like Elio wants payment.

Honestly, all Archie wants to do is some light boxing, can't you people just let him have some peace for once?!



Archie, who looks wet(?!), shows up at the door of the Lodge apartment?! Varchie?! Could it be?! Going ✈️ reunion?!


Pop's Diner officially has the highest crime rate in Riverdale. OFFICIALLY.

As part of their mission, Jughead, FP and Gladys have to rob Pop's diner. Sitting in the diner having a lovely chat are Josie and her dad Myles McCoy, who has presumably returned as a plot device for Josie's eventual departure from the town. After the Jones' fam come barrelling - armed! - wearing serpent masks, Josie says "Now do you see why I need to get out of this town?!"

Same Josie, same.
