The CW has released a slew of new photos teasing the upcoming third episode of “Riverdale,” titled “Body Double.” The episode will find Archie and the gang at odds with each other as they are drawn deeper into the increasingly complex mystery behind the death of Jason Blossoms.
Cheryl Blossom, Jason’s brother, can only disperse the cloud of suspicion around her by finally talking about the last time she saw her sibling alive. Meanwhile, Archie’s relationship with young music teacher Miss Grundy is put to the test. The star football player must also figure out how to attend the Taste of Riverdale event after being grounded. Local band Josie and the Pussycats will be playing a song he co-wrote, after all.
Betty and Jughead conduct literary necromancy when they revive the Riverdale school newspaper to get to the bottom of Jason’s death. Elsewhere, Veronica and Ethel start an investigation of their own into the football team’s little black book that has started making the rounds.
