In the latest episode of Riverdale, high tension and a new mystery take center stage during Carrie: The Musical. Here’s everything you need to know!
The goal of “Riverdale,” according to creator and showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, is always to push boundaries. After a second season that saw episodes take on the tone of “Zodiac” in a small town, “Tales From The Darkside,” and “The Godfather,” the CW’s dramatic adaptation of classic Archie Comics characters is getting musical.
“[Our characters] are kids who, even though they get involved in crime and stuff, are still high school kids — and high school kids do musicals every year,” Aguirre-Sacasa tells Variety. “So it feels like, on a show with high school kids, it’s easy to get to [a story where] we’re doing a musical. It’s one of the kind of classic coming-of-age rites of passage.”
Airing April 18, the episode entitled “Chapter Thirty-One: A Night To Remember” sees the students at Riverdale High — including Archie (KJ Apa), Betty (Lili Reinhart), Veronica (Camila Mendes), Kevin (Casey Cott) and Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch) — mounting a production of “Carrie: The Musical.” Meanwhile, Jughead (Cole Sprouse) acts as documentarian of the project.
As Riverdale High begins rehearsals for its upcoming production of “Carrie the Musical”, the arrival of an ominous letter forces director Kevin to make a difficult decision about the show. Jughead uses his cover as the musical’s documentarian to solve the mystery behind the letter. Meanwhile, tensions between Betty and Veronica continue to escalate just as Alice announces she is joining the musical to spend more time with Betty. Elsewhere, Hiram enacts a devious plan to further drive a wedge between Fred and Archie, while Cheryl channels Carrie White during a showdown with her mother.
