Riverdale Season 3, Episode 8 Preview: “Outbreak”

Riverdale‘s mid-season finale airs this Wednesday, and it loos like it is going to be pretty bat%$!# insane. Mass seizures cause the closure of Riverdale High, Cheryl Blossom is declaring war, Betty is holding people hostage at the Sisters of Mercy, Veronica is getting even more threats from Hiram of the biblical variety, and Archie and Jughead go to stay with Jellybean and Jughaed’s mom (guest stars Gina Gershon and Trinity Likins).  Will we get at least a fake-out reveal of who the Gargoyle King is? Will anyone else die? Things are not looking good for Ethel in the below promo. How far will Betty go to get her answers? Will Jughead get his mother and Jellybean to come back to Riverdale?
