'Riverdale' Season 4: Charles and Chic are out to get the Coopers
The Charles-Chic storyline has been very intriguing and we do not know what they have in store for the Coopers.
This article contains spoilers for ‘Riverdale’ Season 4 Episode 6: ‘Hereditary’
Chic Cooper (Hart Denton) was not Chic’s brother. He lived with the real Charles Smith-Jones. Next up, we see the real Charles (Erm... we thought so too) as an FBI agent and play a key role in bringing down the nefarious Farm. ‘Hereditary’ saw Betty (Lili Reinhart) dig deeper into Charles’ history and yep, dark secrets are out y’all. The final few minutes of the episode proves he is in cahoots with Chic, now imprisoned.
From the episode, it is also clear that Charles also has an elaborate scheme that he’s planned with Chic to help cover up the murder of the Shady Man. The only mystery yet to be cleared is, why is Chic doing this? Does this all lead back to Penelope Blossom who is still out there somewhere hatching the downfall of Riverdale’s finest?
The Charles-Chic storyline has been one of those intriguing plotlines that was not explained and it's interesting to see what plans they have in store for the Coopers. Now that it is clear the Charles and Chic are in a relationship, things don’t look too good. Especially for Betty. Considering that she is the most trusted at the moment, it is evident that the duo will attempt to get rid of the sleuthing teen first.
Here's what could be sort of an outlandish theory: What if Chic and Charles take out Jughead and then frame the core three for his murder? While there are strong reasons for Stonewall Prep as the main culprit behind Jug's "supposed death", this is Riverdale and just anything could happen. With Hal Cooper dead and Penelope missing, Chic with Hiram is one of the villains still alive and kicking. What will he do? Only time will tell.
'Riverdale' season 4 airs Wednesdays at 8 pm on The CW.
