Three seasons of 'Riverdale' hasn't been anything like the fourth staggering hit season. In a season that is filled with twists and turns at almost every plot point, 'Riverdale' has a surprise guest, starring in the upcoming episode, 'Chapter 65: In Treatment'.

'Suits' star Gina Torres makes an appearance as Mrs. Burble, a guidance counselor for the teens at Riverdale High. At the moment, there's not much to go on about how her character impacts the plotline this season. The CW has released the official promo and synopsis for 'In Treatment'.

The synopsis reads: "GINA TORRES GUEST STARS AS RIVERDALE HIGH'S GUIDANCE COUNSELOR — As residents across Riverdale begin receiving more mysterious videotapes on their doorsteps, the seniors of Riverdale High eagerly await their college decision letters."

"Concerned that the stress may be getting to them, Mrs Burble (guest star Gina Torres), the school's guidance counselor, meets with Betty (Lili Reinhart), Archie (KJ Apa), Veronica (Camila Mendes), Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch) and Jughead (Cole Sprouse) to discuss what's plaguing them.

"Madchen Amick, Mark Consuelos, Casey Cott, Skeet Ulrich, and Vanessa Morgan also star. Michael Goi directed the episode written by Tessa Leigh Williams," the synopsis adds.

The upcoming episode supposedly brings the mysterious videotapes back. They appeared in Episode 4 and disappeared just as quickly. Time for some voyeur mystery to be introduced.

As far as the core four characters go, they are all seen grappling with their own share of woes. Archie Andrews (KJ Apa) is trying to be every bit the son his dad, Fred (the late Luke Perry) wanted him to be and that isn't exactly going well for him.

His pal, Jug (Cole Sprouse) isn't killing it at Stonewall Prep either. The Baxter Brothers novel mystery challenge has a dirty secret and it has already snuffed out a life. 

Betty Cooper (Lili Reinhart) has the Chic-Charles (Wyatt Nash and Harl Denton) case and things look pretty ominous. Family matters have taken center stage for Veronica Lodge, or should we still say, Veronica Luna?

Wily sister, Hermosa (Mishel Prada) is in town and the sisters haven't exactly got on well. With all of this and some new mysteries popping up, the season is fast becoming a riveting watch and we can't wait. 'Riverdale' Season 4 Episode 8 will air at 8 pm on The CW on December 8.
