Riverdale Season 5 Episode 10 Recap
In the episode ‘Chapter Eighty-Six: The Pincushion Man,’ Hiram touches a new pinnacle of greed when he blasts a prison wall because he wants access to mine more palladium. As a result, the prisoners are set free, and he even pays them to trash the town. Since Cheryl did not sell the maple groves to Hiram, Reggie sets the groves on fire.
The long list of people that escape from prison also includes Charles and Chic, who turn up at the Cooper residence. They reveal that they want to get married and would like Betty to perform the ceremony. But soon, the dinner takes a violent turn, compelling Betty to stab Glen. In a tussle involving a gun, Charles is hit and lands in the ICU. We learn that Glen will be alright since the stab is a flesh wound. Finally, Betty takes up Polly’s case again and heads out dressed like a trucker.
The Coopers aren’t the only ones who receive unexpected guests; Penelope Blossom is back at Thornhill. Even though the maple groves are set on fire, the mansion remains untouched. Meanwhile, the situation at Riverdale High is spiraling out of control as the escaped prisoners attack the school on the Parent-Teacher Night. While Archie deals with them well enough to bring the situation under control, he also learns that his Army days may not have been as noble and honorable as he thought. When he confronts the sergeant about the shady operation he was sent on, he threatens to frame Archie.
As for Veronica, she learns that she is stuck with Chad since he has got her name involved in some shady investments. Therefore, the divorce is off the table for now. We know that Jughead has been chasing inspiration for his book, which has gotten him into bizarre situations. But his latest attempt to overcome writer’s block proves to be reckless. After he takes psychedelic mushrooms, not only does he hallucinate about getting back with Betty, but he also goes missing. Tabitha only finds a trail of blood when she goes to check up on Jughead.
