'Riverdale' Recap: Did Jughead Jones Actually Die? Find Out!

'Riverdale' Recap: Did Jughead Jones Actually Die? Find Out!

Who’s still stunned by the Riverdale finale last night? We know we are!

There were so many things that happened, but the biggest thing was, to many fans’ relief, that Jughead did NOT die.

Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa chatted with ET after the episode aired and opened up about Jughead’s fate.

“I knew that Jughead wasn’t going to die and [if that happened] it felt like making that the season finale, unless we were actually going to kill Jughead, I didn’t want to do it because it would’ve felt like a little bit of a tease, but no delivery,” he says.

He continued, “When we [really] talked about it, what we wanted was for Jughead to make a real sacrifice in a heroic way for the Serpents and we wanted to play the reality of that. But for us it wasn’t about the cliffhanger or the shock, it was the actual action that Jughead took as a gesture for the Serpents.”

Going forward, what does this mean for Jughead and Betty’s relationship? You know, since she is his “Serpent Queen” now and all.

“So much of this season has been dark for both Betty and Jughead, but even more than that, they were on separate tracks,” Roberto adds. “Betty was with the Black Hood and Jughead was with the Serpents and we didn’t see them working together as detectives as much…”

“I think it was important in the finale to kind of bring them together again as a couple and remind people that they are a romantic couple as well and that again is something that we want to get back to in season three.”
