'Riverdale': Trailer of season 3 episode 3 teases Jughead Jones playing the deadly Gargoyle game and Archie wrestling in arena
The 40 seconds trailer also teases the entry of the eerie character Evelyn Evernever as she invites Betty Cooper to one of the cult's meetings
Just two episodes in and 'Riverdale' season 3 has already scaled its supernatural game. In the upcoming episode 3 titled 'As Above, So Below,' the mysterious board game Griffons and Gargoyles will take the center plot, as Jughead Jones explores the role-playing world of the Gargoyle King. Those associated with the game, namely Dilton and Ben, have died and Ethel, who is 'Princess Etheline' in the game, suffered seizures.
As much as we love the fact that 'Bughead' is a great team and their thrilling investigations stir our adrenaline, we are worried about Jones' fate. Another lead we are worried about, after looking at the trailer, is Archie Andrews. Tapped as the new 'Mad Dog,' by the prison warden, fans are worried if his life is in danger.
The 'Mad Dog' we met in episode 2 is apparently dead, so what does this imply for Andrews? Not to forget the impulsive and stupid decision our beloved redhead makes, we only pray he actually thinks about the consequences of his "selfless" life choices. We see him wrestling in the arena and as he smacks his opponent, he looks like he will win the fight, he ought to, for the sake of shirtless scenes we've seen so far.
The trailer also shows FP Jones and Alice Cooper in bed and, to be honest, this was a much-anticipated hook-up. So good news for 'Falice' shippers, this may be the episode for them, but let's not think about it because Jughead and Betty are dating and we don't want to see them turn siblings.... that would be weird!
The 40 seconds trailer also teases the entry of the eerie character, Evelyn Evernever, daughter of Edgar Evernever, who appears to be one of the Farm's leaders. Evelyn was last seen causing a seizure to Ethel, so we are guessing she has one of those supernatural powers that the showrunners deny. Evelyn invites Betty to one of the cult's meeting and tells her that she can have her "first testimony," as Betty gives her a questioning and baffled reaction.
As for Veronica Lodge, she is determined to shake her villainous father down and we are looking forward to see how the young Lodge will play out Hiram Lodge.
Riverdale season 3 episode 3, 'As Above, So Below,' will air Wednesday, October 24 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
