The midseason finale of Riverdale is less than a week away and The CW has released all new images from the episode, “Chapter Eighty-Six: The Pincushion Man.” In the episode, parent-teacher night at Riverdale High takes an unexpected turn, Hiram and Reggie plan to take over the Blossom maple groves, Tabitha has some growing concerns over Jughead’s method to deal with writer’s block, and Alice and Betty receive some surprising visitors.

The full 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.”

While the new photos don’t show too much, it looks like Chad has found his way back to Riverdale, even after Veronica broke it off with him. Check out the photos below!
