The finale ends as Betty and Archie lastly determine to be collectively after years of secretly pining for each other, relationship different folks, and sometimes combating serial killers. By no means change, “Riverdale,” by no means change. However as they determine to consummate their new relationship, the duo hears a weird beep coming from beneath Archie’s mattress — shock, shock, it is a bomb from Hiram Lodge. The villainous gangster at all times desires revenge on Archie for getting in the way in which of his plans for Riverdale, however clearly, he is had sufficient.
The episode does not present Archie and Betty attempting to flee the home, and even attempting to defuse the bomb — as a substitute, it cuts to Hiram and a countdown in his automotive. The finale cleverly exhibits followers a large shot of the city with a fiery blaze raging someplace down beneath, clearly implying that the Andrews home has been blown up with Archie and Betty inside.
