We’re here to help you catch up on the most important facts and stories from Riverdale’s most recent episode.

Melody creates a narrative about the Pussycats’ disintegration and reunification. Val toasts Melody on her accomplishment as a published author, whose debut book is being considered for adaptation into a film, during a home party. Val, who is now employed as a barista, has shown interest in playing the lead in the film, but Melody claims that the studio is looking for a larger star. Val, on the other hand, is debating with her partner about whether or not they want to marry.


Josie is now a successful music singer who arrived in Riverdale after disappearing during a stop on her worldwide tour. Josie runs into Tabitha and sings “It’s All Coming Back to Me Now” while reminiscing about her Riverdale days. While singing at the Five Seasons, Josie receives a noise complaint from Hiram, but she ignores him. Weatherbee offers to let Josie use the music room at Riverdale High in return for her teaching a music lesson. Archie invites her to the Wyte Wyrm after she gives the lesson. She accepts and asks Val and Melody to accompany her. Josie accuses the rest of the group of treating her badly in high school over drinks at the Wyte Wyrm. She runs into Sweet Pea as she exits Pop’s and the two hook up. Josie meets Val and Melody at the Wyte Wyrm the following morning and invites them to participate on one of her new album’s songs. Melody sings “Physical” and Val sings “Make Me” when Josie wonders whether they’re still performing. They confront her about her abandonment of both of them, and she apologizes.


Sierra reunites with Josie, and the two discuss why she vanished: she’d discovered that her father had died of a heart attack just before coming on stage. Melody later informs Val that she rejected down the movie contract because Val would not be able to feature in it. When Melody and Val learn of Josie’s father’s death, they go to console her. The three of them agree to perform a one-night-only reunion performance to generate money for Riverdale’s re-incorporation. They put on a performance and sing a mix of tunes. Toni goes into labor during the performance, and Fangs and Cheryl assist her in giving birth to a baby boy.


Josie later invites Melody and Val to join her on a tour, and they accept. They leave on their tour, and Toni’s kid, Tony, is presented to everyone. Sweet Pea offers to join the trip as a bus driver after Val and Melody bid their goodbyes to their significant ones. Then a singer called Toots Sweets appears and claims that Josie’s father was killed, prompting Josie to propose that the tour go to New Orleans to investigate.

Meanwhile, Tabitha approaches Veronica for assistance in franchising Pop’s, but Veronica is unable to do so at this time owing to her financial difficulties with Chad. Alexandra Cabot later meets with Veronica and demands for the money she loaned to Chad, and Veronica uses the Pop’s brand to her advantage. Veronica convenes a meeting between Tabitha and Alexandra, and Alexandra accepts on the condition that Pop’s be transformed into a “singing restaurant.” “Little Shop of Horrors” is performed by Alexandra, Tabitha, and Toni. Later, Alexandra proposes certain modifications to Pop’s, but Tabitha is adamant about not implementing them, so they decide to franchise without them.




Riverdale airs on The CW on Wednesdays at 8/7c.
