The midseason finale of Riverdale is next week and it seems like it will be a lot to handle. The CW has released a new promo for the episode, “Chapter Eighty-Six: The Pincushion Man,” and Hiram looks to be counting down to Riverdale’s destruction, or “ruination,” as he puts it. Check out the promo below!
In the promo, Betty slaps Glen, Jughead and Tabitha are getting closer than ever to each other, something resembling an alien life force is discovered and Kevin is being held at gunpoint. At the end, there is the sound of a big crash. What else could happen?
The official description for “Chapter Eighty-Six: The Pincushion Man” reads:
“PARENT-TEACHER NIGHT — While preparing for the school’s Parent-Teacher night, Archie (KJ Apa) is caught off guard when his former Army General shows up in Riverdale with some unexpected news. Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch) pushes back after hearing that Hiram (Mark Consuelos) and Reggie (Charles Melton) have expressed interest in taking over the Blossom maple groves. Jughead’s (Cole Sprouse) unconventional way to get through a case of writer’s block causes Tabitha (Erinn Westbrook) to be concerned for his safety. Finally, Betty (Lili Reinhart) and Alice (Mädchen Amick) receive some unexpected visitors. Camila Mendes and Casey Cott also star. Gabriel Correa directed the episode written by Chrissy Maroon (#510). Original airdate 3/31/2021.”
