Riverdale Season 5 Episode 9 Recap
The ninth episode of season 5 is titled ‘Chapter Eighty-Five: Destroyer.’ We see that Archie and Veronica do all they can to motivate the school football team (the Bulldogs) to break their cold streak. Veronica even strikes up a sorry deal with Hiram to keep the Bulldogs in the league. The bet is that if the Bulldogs score, they will stay in the game, but if it is a shutout, then the team will step out voluntarily. Even after Riverdale High’s best football player transfers to Stonewall, the Bulldogs manage to score 7 points in the game with help from fresh recruits. Interestingly, Reggie refuses to be a part of Hiram’s schemes, because of which Hiram is forced to coach Stonewall himself.
As for the Coopers, they are going through some of their darkest times. Betty is barely holding on to her sanity, while Alice is convinced that Polly is dead. When Betty hears from Glen that the blood found in the phone booth matches Polly’s rare blood type, she takes matters into her own hands. Betty goes to the Lonely Highway and desperately tries to extract information from the truckers. She even takes one of them hostage and is ready to kill him when she is interrupted by a call from Jughead.
As it turns out, Jughead calls to ask for her help since his student Lerman has gone missing. Weirdly enough, she finds Lerman on the highway, and it is not the first time something like this has happened to him. It looks like the alien-Mothmen story is coming to a head. Glen declares that he is taking over Polly’s case and tells Alice that Betty had lied about the blood not matching Polly’s. Elsewhere, Kevin finally acknowledges something that he had brushed under the carpet for many years: he is ashamed of being gay. We learn that his insecurity stems from an inconsiderate remark that his mother had made in the past.
