The season premiere was melodramatically sensational on introducing the many shocking events that gave the audience chills and goosebumps, just in time for Halloween.

Many of these shocking events were in continuation from season two. Such as Archie Andrews’ murder trial, the introduction of a mysterious cult and a supernatural villain set to invade the small town of Riverdale.

Season two left many fans on a cliffhanger about what direction of the future of the characters and the small town of Riverdale will head into.

Season three did not disappoint on where it left off and finally gave viewers some relief on what’s going to happen to the beloved Archie characters and possible plot predictions.

The plot starts off with Archie Andrew’s murder trial and possible jail time for a murder he did not commit.

The season’s two biggest mysteries make their grand entrance with the introduction of a new villain, the “Gargoyle King” and a mysterious farm cult with supernatural abilities.

The season also included feuds that were left off the past season starting with the Lodge family abusing thier power and wealth in the town.

The antagonist of the show, Hiram Lodge, played by Mark Consuelos, and his daughter Veronica, played by Camila Mendes, declared war on his plot to separate her from Archie Andrews, played by KJ Apa.

One of the other feuds that took place was with the Southside Serpents gang leader Jughead Jones, played by Cole Sprouse, and their nasty confrontation with their rival gang, the Ghoulies.

This season could be the spookiest and darkest season yet, by including the first episode’s supernatural twist into it and for a possible crossover with the upcoming spinoff of “The Chillin Adventures Of Sabrina” set to premiere later this month on Netflix.
