Fans are anxiously awaiting the end of Riverdale‘s compelling plot with only four episodes left in the series. As viewers get ready to see how the time-traveling narrative and the characters’ futures will play out in the last moments of Riverdale, there is a lot of excitement for the series finale.
The plot will return to the present day in the forthcoming Riverdale season finale, “Chapter One Hundred Thirty-Seven: Goodbye, Riverdale”,” but with an unexpected twist. According to The CW’s official description, we will join up with an elderly Betty in the present day. At the age of 86, Betty longs for her former existence in Riverdale and enlists the assistance of a close friend to help her relive her final day of senior year with her pals and fix their memories.
NOW LEAVING RIVERDALE — Back in present day and longing for her former life in Riverdale, 86-year-old Betty (Lili Reinhart) turns to a special friend to help her relive her last day of senior year with her friends as they were, their memories restored. KJ Apa, Camila Mendes, Cole Sprouse, Madelaine Petsch, Madchen Amick, Casey Cott, Charles Melton, Vanessa Morgan and Drew Ray Tanner also star. The episode was written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (#720).
The identity of this special buddy is unknown, but rumors suggest that it might be Tabitha, Betty’s guardian angel, who has the ability to send her back in time. The epic supernatural struggle with Percival Pickens and a deadly comet heading toward their town resulted in Betty and her friends being transported back in time to the 1950s, where they are still students at Riverdale High, in the show’s concluding season.
This final episode’s setting and timeline are still a little hazy, so there could be future time leaps and surprises. While Betty in the present will be an older version of Betty in the 1950s, it is unclear if they would reunite as a couple before the time leap to the 1950s.
As you noted, it is hoped that the final episodes of Riverdale will connect all these ostensibly unrelated occurrences and disclose a secret meaning. It’s possible that when the season finale airs, the puzzle pieces may come together and the seemingly random episodes will make sense. Fans will soon learn if Riverdale is able to bring the ’50s storyline and the characters’ adventures to a satisfactory finish as the season finale draws near.
It’s obvious that Riverdale has had its ups and downs throughout its run, and fans may have varying perspectives on the overall quality of the final season, whether or not the finale addresses your questions. Nevertheless, it’s always intriguing to observe how a long-running show wraps up its plotlines and completes the arcs of its characters.
Riverdale’s series finale is scheduled to air on Wednesday, August 23rd at 9/8c on The CW.
