The CW has released a new promo for next week’s episode of Riverdale, “Chapter Eighty-Eight: Citizen Lodge,” in which we will finally learn the origin story of Hiram Lodge.
Check out the promo below!
The episode looks to be mostly set in the past as Hiram tells Reggie his origin story of how he became the kingpin of Riverdale, as Reggie reflects on his relationship with his own father. Mark Consuelos’ son, Michael Consuelos, returns to play a young Hiram in what is a perfect casting choice.
