Riverdale Chapter 70 Recap: The Ides of March follows Jughead is officially kicked out of Quill & Skull after Betty’s break-in, Mr. DuPont informs him, and that’s not all: His Baxter Brothers contract will be terminated unless he submits an entirely new book by Friday, aka the Ides of March.
With Betty’s help, Jughead scrambles to write a prep school thriller based on his time with Stonewall — one that centers on “the perfect murder.” (Hmmm.) But then DuPont makes things even harder on him by accusing him of plagiarizing his Yale writing submission from fellow student Jonathan, and Jughead can’t find the old laptop he originally wrote it on. Now he’s slated for a disciplinary tribunal… also on the Ides of March, of course.
After learning about her dad Hiram’s debilitating disease, Veronica was determined to make every moment count this week, indulging in sex and alcohol-fueled hedonistic streak. Archie noticed something was off, though, and she confessed in tears that she was afraid of losing her dad. Archie encouraged her to inspire Hiram to keep fighting — so she launched a new ad campaign for her maple syrup rum that directly attacks Lodge Rum, enraging him enough to retaliate. source tvline
