‘Goodbye, Riverdale’

The popular teen drama aired its final episode last night, and the ending is nothing short of bizarre. For starters, it takes place sixty seven years into the future.

The episode focuses on Betty, played by Lili Reinhart, who is now in her eighties. We watch her find out that Jughead, played by Cole Sprouse, has died at the age of eighty-four leaving her the last remaining member of their friend group.

She asks her granddaughter to take her back to Riverdale. On the drive, she sees Jughead in a dream where he reveals to her that she can relive a single day of her life. She chooses to go back to the last day of high school where she last saw everyone. This reveals exactly what happened to the rest of the characters.
