Spoiler alert! The following contains details from the Season 4 premiere of “Riverdale,” “In Memoriam.”
“Riverdale” returned Wednesday on a quiet, heartbreaking note.
The fourth season premiere of CW’s Archie Comics drama included the death of Archie’s (KJ Apa) father, Fred Andrews, a plot twist fans saw coming after the death of actor Luke Perry in March.
Perry’s final appearance aired at the tail end of Season 3 in April, but after the events of the finale episode, Fred was alive, and his fate in the series was uncertain. The season opener, set over the July 4 holiday and titled “In Memoriam,” includes Fred’s death and funeral.
