As Bleeding Cool‘s resident Riverdale expert Adriel continues cutting her way through the underbrush of the town’s insanity for another week’s worth of reviewing, we thought now would be as good a time as any to offer up the promo and preview images for this week’s “Chapter Sixty-Six: Tangerine”.
Just as a reminder, we’re not in a position to speak on Adriel’s behalf and we’re definitely in on the where this episode is going – but when all is said and done?
It’s all about the bloody beanie… okay, and also a little bt about Betty about ready to get stabbed:
“Riverdale” season 4, episode 9 “Chapter Sixty-Six: Tangerine”: THE SEARCH FOR FORSYTHE PENDLETON JONES I — After declaring war on Hiram (Mark Consuelos), Veronica (Camila Mendes) enlists a secret weapon against her father – her Abuelita (guest star Ana Mercedes). Archie (KJ Apa) and FP (Skeet Ulrich) team up to take Dodger (guest star Juan Riedinger) down for good, while Betty (Lili Reinhart) and Charles (guest star Wyatt Nash) investigate a series of strange attacks aimed at Betty. Elsewhere, Jughead’s (Cole Sprouse) search for his grandpa, Forsythe Pendleton Jones I (guest star Timothy Webber), leads to more questions than answers, while Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch) finally makes peace with the past that’s been haunting her. Mädchen Amick, Casey Cott, Charles Melton and Vanessa Morgan also star. Gabriel Correa directed the episode written by Brian E. Paterson
This year’s New York Comic Con (NYCC) proved to be an eventful one for Riverdale – with special announcements, casting news, and exclusive footage – as well as the cast and executive producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa having fun discussing the past season’s wild ride of storylines while teasing what fans can expect when Riverdale returns for a fourth season.
Two of the more jucier takeaways from the panel should catch the interest of both Twin Peaks and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina fans:
● While it doesn’t appear there will be a direct Riverdale/CAOS crossover this season, Aguirre-Sacasa revealed that the show is “seeding hints left and right” and that fans will “see more of them this year.”
● As for the beloved David Lynch series, Aguirre-Sacasa would like to see Riverdale pay its respects: “One of our big influences is ‘Twin Peaks’. One thing we’re talking about is doing a David Lynchian episode.”
Without missing a beat, Mädchen Amick (Twin Peaks‘ Shelly Johnson) asked the only question that needed to be asked at that point: “Can I direct that one?”.
● Kerr Smith (The Fosters, Life Unexpected) has been cast in a recurring role as new Riverdale High principal Mr. Honey – appearing in the second episode of season four, “Chapter Fifty-Nine: Fast Times at Riverdale High.” Mr. Honey is a bit of a hard-ass who takes a harder line with the students this year, especially with the seniors.
● Sam Witwer (Supergirl) has been cast in the recurring role of Mr. Chipping. Handsome, bookish, and cool, Mr. Chipping teaches creative writing at a prestigious prep school near Riverdale. He recruits Jughead (Cole Sprouse) for his seminar – and while he’s eminently inspiring to his students, there’s a darkness hidden far beneath the surface.
