Though no episodic images have surfaced as of yet, The CW has released the full episodic description for “Chapter Ten: The Lost Weekend,” the tenth episode in Riverdale‘s 13-episode first season. In it, Archie’s feelings about the impending divorce of his parents and attempt to win Valerie back take a backseat to Betty’s party planning skills, while Veronica is faced with a deposition that could exonerate her father.
TRUE FEELINGS – GUEST STARRING MOLLY RINGWALD – When Fred (Luke Perry) decides to finalize the divorce with Archie’s mother Mary (guest starring Molly Ringwald), Archie hides his true feelings. Archie (KJ Apa) tries to win Valerie (guest star Hayley Law) back with a romantic evening, however, Betty (Lili Reinhart) hijacks his plans when she decides to throw Jughead (Cole Sprouse) a surprise birthday party. Once Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch) learns of the party, she decides to make it interesting and things quickly get out of control. Meanwhile, Veronica (Camila Mendes) contemplates whether she should participate in the deposition to help get her Dad released. Madchen Amick and Marisol Nichols also star. Dana Wilkinson directed the episode written by Britta Lundin & Brian E. Paterson (#110). Original air date 4/13/2017.
