The CW has released photos for “Chapter One Hundred and Nineteen: Skip, Hop, and Thump!”, the second episode of Riverdale‘s seventh and final season. The series returns on Wednesday March 29th with “Skip, Hop, and Thump!” scheduled to air on April 5th. In the photos everyone at Riverdale High is getting ready for the big sock hop which may even include a performance from Fangs, but based on the synopsis, it sounds like there’s plenty of interpersonal drama when it comes to the big dance. You can check the synopsis out for yourself below and continue scrolling on for the episode’s photos as well.
“RIVERDALE SOCK HOP — Riverdale High’s sock hop is around the corner and Archie (KJ Apa) has his sights set on taking Veronica (Camila Mendes) to the dance. Betty (Lili Reinhart) is confused when Kevin (Casey Cott) appears uninterested in taking things to the next level with her. Elsewhere, Jughead (Cole Sprouse) takes aim at Pep Comics, and Toni (Vanessa Morgan) attempts to convince Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch) to let Fangs (Drew Ray Tanner) perform at the sock hop. Ronald Paul Richard directed the episode written by Ariana Jackson.”
What is Season 7 of Riverdale about?
The seventh season of Riverdale goes where no season of Riverdale has dared to go before-the 1950s! Picking up where last season ended, Jughead Jones (Cole Sprouse) finds himself trapped in the 1950s. He has no idea how he got there, nor how to get back to the present. His friends are no help, as they are living seemingly authentic lives, similar to their classic Archie Comics counterparts, unaware that they’ve ever been anywhere but the 1950’s.
Archie Andrews (KJ Apa) is the classic all-American teen, coming of age, getting into trouble, and learning life-lessons; Betty Cooper (Lili Reinhart) is the girl next door, starting to question everything about her perfect life-including her controlling mother Alice (Madchen Amick); Veronica Lodge (Camila Mendes) is a Hollywood starlet who moved to Riverdale under mysterious circumstances; Cheryl Blossom (Madelaine Petsch) is the Queen Bee with a withering wit and a secret longing; Toni Topaz (Vanessa Morgan) is an activist fighting for the Black students of recently integrated Riverdale High; Kevin Keller (Casey Cott) is a “square” crooner wrestling with his sexual identity; Reggie Mantle (Charles Melton) is a basketball star from farm country; and Fangs Fogarty (Drew Ray Tanner) is a greaser who’s destined to be an Elvis-type star. It isn’t until Jughead is visited by Tabitha Tate (Erinn Westbrook)-Riverdale’s Guardian Angel-that he learns the cosmic truth about their predicament. Will Jughead and the gang be able to return to the present? Or will our characters be trapped in the 1950’s forever? And, if so…is that such a bad thing?
Riverdale‘s Season 7 premiere will air on Wednesday, March 29th at 9/8c on The CW. “Chapter One Hundred and Nineteen: Skip, Hop, and Thump!” is scheduled to air on April 5th.
