Riverdale Season 2 Finale: All the questions we have ahead of Season 3

And so Riverdale Season 2 has concluded. It wasn’t with a bang, nor with a whimper, but rather, something that’s a little bit in between.

This deliberately understated final episode didn’t quite deliver all the twists and turns we’ve come to expect from Riverdale, nor the explosive cliffhangers of Season 1, but there’s more than enough to set up next year’s third season.

Here, then, are five questions we have after watching the Riverdale Season 2 finale, Brave New World.

My final Riverdale article of the season! Quite possibly my final Riverdale article (of this type) full stop, actually – I’ve got no idea if this ongoing, week-to-week coverage is something I’ll be continuing at Metro for Season 3.

Hopefully, it will (I say, months after I’ve actually finished it, when the week to week stresses are a faint memory), because I do like the show, but if not, that’s not the end of the world: I’m sure I’ll have some other Riverdale, and maybe Sabrina, content at some point anyway.

Riverdale Season 2: Is Hal the Black Hood? And will he kill Sheriff Keller next?

We know now the Black Hood is going after the victims who previously escaped him, as well as those he perceives to be sinners. With Midge and Chic dead, that leaves a couple of obvious victims next – maybe Moose, or indeed Fred Andrews. 

But it feels more likely that he’ll target Sheriff Keller. 

He’ll find himself in the crosshairs because of his affair with Mayor McCoy, but from a narrative perspective, it makes sense: Keller is exactly the sort of prominent supporting character whose death would create emotional stakes, but not represent a massive change in the same way killing Archie’s dad would. 

Next week, then, Sheriff Keller should probably be worried about more than just his job.

Here’s my piece on this week’s Riverdale episode, which I’d love if people could share around a bit.

This particular article ponders whether Hal is the Black Hood, if Sheriff Keller is likely to be his next victim, and more. (Like, for example, why Cheryl and the River Vixens have a special funeral outfit. Actually, it’s less a question, because the reason is obvious – it is Extremely Extra, in a way that suits both Cheryl and Riverdale, so it makes perfect sense – and more of a celebration.)

And, yes, if you’re thinking that the above picture has very little to do with the above text, then… well, then you’d be correct. These things happen, you know how it is.
