The beginning of this season of Riverdale saw Archie’s father suffer a gunshot from an unknown assailant, and just like that, one murder mystery was solved, and another mystery was opened up. This mystery was accelerated by the death of Miss Grundy, and now the entirety of Riverdale seems to be on edge.

The new trailer from The CW seems to be bringing to light the reasons behind “The Angel of Death’s” rampage. Based on the lines from the letter from the black-hooded killer, it sounds like he’s fed up with all the lies and secrets that have laid dormant in Riverdale. Of course, Archie isn’t taking this one sitting down, and seems dead-set on protecting his own.

Below is the official synopsis for the next episode of Riverdale:

“TAKING A STAND — Frustrated by the lack of progress made in catching his father’s shooter, Archie (KJ Apa) takes matters into his own hands in order to send the gunman a message. Meanwhile, Veronica (Camila Mendes) is thrilled when Hiram’s (Mark Consuelos) attempt to start fresh means she gets to introduce him to her friends, including Archie. Elsewhere, Jughead (Cole Sprouse) starts his first day at Southside High and is befriended by a Southside Serpent named Toni (guest star Vanessa Morgan), while Kevin’s (Casey Cott) attempt at having a little fun causes Betty (Lili Reinhart) to grow concerned for his safety. Finally, an unexpected turn of events leads the town to realize their darkest chapter may be far from over.”
