Now, the episode titled “Chapter 54: Fear the Reaper,” has officially aired on the CW. The scene in question features Archie, played by KJ Apa, having a heart-to-heart with his father about the death of his boxing partner, Randy.
You can check out the final dialogue exchanged between the two characters below.
“Son, from everything you've said, it's clear Randy died from those drugs,” Fred says. “The autopsy will support that. You're innocent.”
“But I’m not, Dad,” Archie says. “I knew. I knew Randy was juicing. I could’ve stopped the fight, but I didn’t want to forfeit. If I had.. I’m never stepping into that ring ever again. I can’t.”Now, fans are very understandably broken up about the characters’ final interaction. You can see what fans have to say below.
We are sending Perry’s family, as well as the entire cast of Riverdale, our well-wishes at this time.
