'Katy Keene' Season Finale: Riverdale's Hiram Lodge heads to New York in Episode 13
Spoilers for 'Katy Keene' and 'Riverdale'
'Katy Keene' has not shied away from any 'Riverdale' glimpses in its series as it has had a few of the crazy town's characters visiting New York. Makes sense, right? Considering, 'Katy Keene' is set five years into the future of 'Riverdale'. This time we're in for a bit of eye candy as in this surprising crossover, Hiram Lodge (Mark Consuelos) will appear in the 'Katy Keene' finale, titled 'Chapter Thirteen: Come Together'. Yes, he has to be bringing trouble with him!?
Photos of the finale episode have been released and show Hiram looking well, which is shocking because he is suffering from degenerative illness in 'Riverdale.' Are they telling us he gets better? Besides the photos, much hasn't been released but we're sure Lodge is up to his dangerous antics. "There's one more Riverdale crossover before the end of our first season! Everyone's favorite villain, Hiram Lodge, takes a trip from Riverdale to New York City to cause trouble for the Lopez family. We adore Mark Consuelos and we think fans will love to see him getting up to old tricks, bringing his brand of sexy danger to Katy Keene," said series executive producer Michael Grassi.
There is also a second surprise, we finally see Leo Lacy! In Episode 10 'Chapter Ten: Gloria', we are introduced to Leo's storyline when Katy found a love letter in Gloria Grandbilt's (Katherine LaNasa) desk from Leo Lacy, Mrs Lacy's son, and on it was the signature "LL", the same one that Katy found on her late mother's sewing machine. Fans were ecstatic and speculated that Leo could be Katy's dad. The photos that were released of the finale show Cary Elwes who will be playing the role of Leo Lacy.
The episode synopsis for 'Chapter Thirteen: Come Together' reads, "Katy (Lucy Hale) is starting to see things a little more clearly and needs Gloria’s (Katherine LaNasa) help to make her plan work and it leads her to unexpected opportunities. Eager to make things right, Pepper (Julia Chan) finds a way to make it right with Jorge (Jonny Beauchamp) and Josie (Ashleigh Murray), but she must also try to let go of people in her past. Jorge holds a rally to stop the sale of his parents' building, but he has no idea who he is going up against. Meanwhile, Josie is worried about Alexander (Lucien Laviscount) and turns to someone unexpected for help. Zane Holtz and Camille Hyde also star. Maggie Kiley directed the episode written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa & Michael Grassi."
