Riverdale Season 5 Episode 12 Recap
The twelfth episode of season 5 is called ‘Chapter Eighty-Eight: Citizen Lodge.’ In the present day, Reggie goes to Hiram to pay off his father’s debt but clarifies that he wants to continue working for the crime overlord. So, Hiram decides to share his story with Reggie. The flashback sequences reveal that Hiram was originally named Jaime Luna and came from a humble background.
Jaime’s father, Javier, was a shoe-shiner who moved to Riverdale in the hope of mining palladium, but things did not go as he had hoped. One day, Jaime crosses paths with the crime kingpin Vito Alto, and his life changes forever. Jaime proves his loyalty to Vito and starts climbing the hierarchy of his crime organization. At the same time, he meets young Hermione and wins her over with his newfound wealth. She is also the one who helps him come up with his new name, Hiram Lodge.
However, Javier disapproves of what Hiram does and confronts Vito, which results in the gangster killing him. When Hiram learns about this, he swears to avenge his father’s death and ends up killing several people while Vito is nowhere to be found. In the present day, Hiram kills an elderly Vito in a nursing home. Soon after that, he offers Reggie a way out of the life of crime and suggests that he spends as much time as he can with his father, something that he regrets not doing.
While Reggie reunites with his father and decides to give their car dealership another shot, Hiram watches Hermione and Veronica on his television screen. At that point, it appears that he wants to get back with his family and make up for lost time, but first, he wants to get his hands on the palladium and realize his father’s dream. It turns out that Hiram returned to Riverdale in search of the precious metal which now lies underneath the Blossom Maple Groves.
