10 of the Craziest Fan Theories About Riverdale, Season 2
It’s finally here! Season two of Riverdale premieres tonight and we honestly couldn’t be more excited. We can’t believe that we went so long without having KJ Apa, Lili Reinhart, Camila Mendes, Madelaine Petsch and Casey Cott in our lives. We also can’t forget that we have The CW to thank for bringing Cole Sprouse out of retirement.
Although the first season of Riverdale premiered only just this year, it has become one of the biggest and most highly anticipated shows of recent time. There is an insane amount of incredible fan art and products inspired by the characters, all made by people who simply LOVE and support the characters.
Throughout the whole first season we were burdened with trying to figure out who killed Jason Blossom and why, and once we found out that (***spoiler alert***) Clifford Blossom, Jason’s dad, was the one behind the murder, we thought we could breath easy. Update: we were so wrong.
In the final moments of the Riverdale, S1, Archie Andrews and his father are sitting at Pop’s Chock’lit Shoppe when a masked gunman enters and shoots Fred when he tries to stop him from robbing the register. And seeing as The CW lives for a good cliffhanger, you KNOW that’s where the screen went black. So basically, there’s a chance that Archie’s dad will not make it to season two.
In the 153 days that have passed since the finale, we have had a lot of time to think about what’s going to happen on the upcoming eps. Not only have we come up with our own theories, but there are so many rumors being spread by both fans and the actual creatives working on the show that we just had to put them all together in one convenient place.
Just in time for the show’s premiere tonight, check out these totally wild and insane fan theories (that may turn out to be true) about season two:
Hermione Lodge hired the gunman to shoot Fred Andrews.
This is probably the most probable of all the theories. It's known that Fred and Hermione have a past, and when the man refused to sell his business to her, she got angry. According to the theory, rejection mixed with her husband's return made Hermione hire someone to take out Fred. If this is true, it could cause some SERIOUS problems between Veronica and Archie that would make for an incredibly juicy storyline.
