Riverdale is an American drama series based on the characters by Archie Comics, and the TV series was developed by Roberto Aguirre Sacasa, and Warner Bros. Television and CBS Studios produce the show. The plot of the TV series is about a murder mystery in the small town of Riverdale, and a group of teenagers tries to solve the mystery.
Things The Fans Missed And Misunderstood
Riverdale started as a teenage drama TV series that was about solving a murder mystery, and over the years, the show, which started of like a murder mystery, escalated into something much crazier. Here are some of the things which the fans of the show did not understand.
The Moth Men
Season 5 of Riverdale has reported some incidents of Polly Cooper’s bizarre disappearance and the stories that talk about the mythical creature known as Moth Men who haunt Lonely Highway. In the episode titled “Dance of Death,” the show revealed that this legend is tied to the Blossom family.
Nana Rose said that her late husband used to sleep with a number of women who worked in the Thornhill mansion, and their illegitimate children were given away to the Starkweather family. The Blossom family was all about keeping a clean public image because of ran Blossom Maple Syrup farms.
The Starkweathers’ family used to live in a cave, and they did not have proper surroundings for raising a child; as a result, they decided to create the story of Moth Men so that the people of Riverdale would not come searching for them.
Living in a cave was difficult for them, and the Starkweather family started robbing people on the Lonely Highway, but due to living in harsh conditions, they became twisted and rotten, and they started hunting women for sheer fun and sadly Polly Cooper was one of those unfortunate women. Much to the disappointment of the fans, the Moth Men were not aliens.
The show took an interesting turn when Nana Rose revealed a surprising secret of the Blossom family. She told Cheryl Blossom about her ancestor Abigail was burnt alive at the stake because she was a witch in 1890, and the people who were close to her were behind Abigail’s death.
As a result, in the final moments, she cursed the trio (Archie, Jughead, and Betty’s ancestors) and their bloodlines, and Cheryl would recite the same curse imposed by Abigail so that she could honor her. And this spine-chilling incident teases what might happen in the sixth season of Riverdale.
Hiram played games with Archie and Veronica from the beginning of the show, and in season five, he was hell-bent on mining the town for all its worth. He was trying to obtain every last dram of Palladium underneath the town to create a fortune for himself. However, things changed when Hiram fell in love with committing crimes and loved the power which came along with it.
Hiram is currently not causing trouble in the revival of the town and obtaining the Palladium for himself. However, the gang runs Hiram out of Riverdale as Veronica explaining the murder of Vito Alto by Hiram in the hospital. In spite of the fact that Hiram is no longer in the town, the fans are sure that this is not the last they are watching him, and he will eventually return, as he has a dirty surprise for the show’s protagonist.
Over the span of five seasons, Archie Andrews has been shown as a confused individual who does not know what or who he wants. He has been a construction worker, football player, musician, gangster, fireman, and soldier. But his character sketch is in such a way that he does not know if he wants to end up either with Veronica or Betty, but it seems that he has finally made a decision to end up with Betty Cooper.
The two had a friend with benefits relationship with each other, and later they decided to get together, and it seems that their relationship would work out because they have known each other since their childhood. However, Riverdale giving a happy ending does not sound right at all, so it is quite difficult that they will be together till the end of the show.
