Riverdale Season 5 Episode 11 Recap
Episode 11 is called ‘Chapter Eighty-Seven: Strange Bedfellows.’ Veronica has made it clear that she does not want to be with Chad, except the latter is not ready to let go of her. This makes matters more complicated since Veronica and Archie long for each other. However, they decide not to rekindle their relationship unless Chad is out of the frame. While Veronica deals with Chad, Archie has a big mess to clean up in Riverdale as the town is teeming with criminals following the epic prison break.
In the process, one of the people set free from prison includes Penelope Blossom, who supposedly started a ministry while she was serving her time. As she talks about Jason as the son who died for people’s sins, Cheryl slights it off, thinking of it as her mother’s latest money-making scheme. But when she goes to see Jason’s corpse, a strange experience changes her mind. It seems like she believes her mother’s words after all.
Elsewhere, Jughead is in deep trouble since he ran off while he was still high on mushrooms. He encounters Doc once again after some drunk people beat him up. At the same time, Tabitha panics and enlists Betty’s help to search for him, who in turn contacts Jughead’s ex, Jess. The search for Jughead takes a weird turn when Jess drugs the two women and takes off with Jughead’s manuscript. At the end of the episode, Jughead leaves Tabitha a voice message informing her that he is headed to New York to figure out what was the horrible thing that happened to him during his time there. As the episode ends, we see him get into a truck on the Lonely Highway.
