Riverdale Season 4 Episode 16 Recap:

The episode is titled ‘Chapter Seventy-Three: The Locked Room.’

‘Riverdale’ gets too real in episode 16. In the episode, we see Jughead barging into DuPont’s room, flaunting ‘Big Brother’ fame Da’Vonne Rogers energy, exclaiming, “Hey Guys!” Alongwith him is Betty, and together, they break out the whole “perfect murder” scheme of the Preppies. We learn about the plan, which involves Bret leading Jughead into woods, Joan hitting him with a rock to knock him down, and Donna blowing the Devil’s Breath on Betty to cause her to have a blackout. Jug and Betty also crack open the reason behind Moose’s disappearance, Mr. Chipping’s apparent suicide, and the age-old Baxter Brothers mystery. Jug then accuses DuPont of killing all the old Quill & Skull members, except Jug’s grandpa FP 1, who appears in front of an already baffled, DuPont.

In the next scene, we see DuPont, nosediving into the ground, the Chipping way. Charles questions Donna, who lies her way out but is caught by Betty. Next up, Bret gives out the location of the tapes after being tackled by FP 2 and Jug. The core four are back at Pop’s, unwinding when Kevin approaches them, asking them to sign up for a Variety musical. Also, FP 1 and FP 2 mend their relationship. The End!
