Riverdale Season 5 Episode 14 Recap
‘Riverdale’ season 5 episode 14 is titled ‘Chapter Ninety: The Night Gallery.’ It opens with Cheryl showing Minerva three paintings that tell three different stories. In the first one, Archie is seen meeting with a new therapist named Dr. Winters. He talks to her about his nightmares. Later, we see Archie and his army buddies work a job for Cheryl, as she wants them to dig for palladium under the Maple Groves. However, the carbon monoxide from the mines messes with Archie’s head.
Archie accuses Dr. Winters of drugging him with psychedelics. But when he learns the truth, he apologizes to her. The second painting tells the story of Betty, who is holding a trucker captive. She thinks he knows about what happened to Polly and is somehow connected to the Trash Bag Killer. But before Betty can torture him for more information, he swallows his tongue and chokes himself to death.
Finally, the third painting tells Jughead’s story and sheds light on his life post-high school. After attending writing workshops, Jughead moves to New York and pursues writing full time. He soon starts finding comfort in alcohol and indulges in self-destructive behavior. However, after finding himself in the hospital and being treated for rabies, Jughead decides to curb the drinking. The episode ends with Minerva forgiving Cheryl and spending a night at Thornhill.
