The CW has released some promotional photos and an official description for Riverdale “Chapter Forty-Five: The Stranger” which airs on January 23.
Here’s how they describe it; the photos follow below. Our apologies to those who went looking for this post before it ended up lost! As you can see, it has returned.
SAT PREP — With SAT’s around the corner, Alice (Madchen Amick) and FP (Skeet Ulrich) urge Jughead (Cole Sprouse) and Betty (Lili Reinhart) to stop investigating G&G and start focusing on their SAT prep. However, when Alice takes things one step too far, Betty is forced to come face-to-face with someone from her past. Finally, Jughead makes a bold move against the Gargoyle Gang. Camila Mendes, Marisol Nichols, Luke Perry, Mark Consuelos, Casey Cott and Charles Melton also star. Maggie Kiley directed the episode written by Brian E. Paterson (#310). Original airdate 1/23/2019.
UPDATE: Now that it is known that Archie survived, some new stills have been released for the episode after the fact! You can find them below.
