It’s the biggest question posed by Riverdale’s season opener – just who is the Angel of Death? Last year, Riverdale ended on a cliffhanger – showing us that the death of Jason Blossom was just the beginning, and that so much more danger was still to come to this sleepy town.

In what appeared to be a robbery gone wrong at Pop’s Diner, Fred Andrews was shot, and lay bleeding on the ground. Thankfully, he survived – but curiously, it became clear that this wasn’t a robbery attempt. Or at least, not an attempt to rob the diner. The so-called Angel of Death stole Fred’s wallet – which, according to Archie, contained everything important to him. 

So, who was it? While it’s difficult to say exactly who it is just yet, here are a few theories that start to make sense of what we know so far…

Here’s my piece with a few theories on Riverdale’s Angel of Death… who they shortly renamed the Black Hood. I’m not sure which name I prefer really; the Angel of Death feels Extremely Extra in the appropriate Riverdale way, so that fits better, but the Black Hood was easier to type each week. So, swings and roundabouts.
