“After a charge led by Mayor McCoy (guest star Robin Givens) threatens to further escalate tensions between the North and Southside, Jughead (Cole Sprouse), along with Archie (KJ Apa), tries to put a stop to a dangerous alliance being considered between the Serpents and a long-time rival. Betty (Lili Reinhart) turns to Veronica (Camila Mendes) for help when she’s thrust into the center of a burgeoning mystery surrounding The Sugarman. Finally, Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch) confronts her mother Penelope (guest star Nathalie Boltt) after a traumatic run-in forces her to make a stark realization. Marisol Nichols, Madchen Amick, Luke Perry, Ashleigh Murray, Mark Consuelos, Casey Cott and Skeet Ulrich also star.”

Maggie Kiley directed the episode, which was written by Tessa Leigh Williams & Arabella Anderson.
