Cheryl Blossom is joining the ranks of proud scream queens before her. The Black Hood has officially become her own personal horror movie villain on Riverdale Season 2 Episode 21.
An ax, a scream and a barricade are all we see of our favorite River Vixen queen bee as she tries to avoid becoming The Black Hood's next victim.
After the jaw-dropping cliffhanger on Riverdale Season 2 Episode 20, Cheryl's fate was left up in the air. Would she survive the attack? Why was the serial killer there in the first place? Is she doomed to die like her brother?
Cheryl can't be murdered! But, the way that ax collided with the door, she could become the new star of The Shining if she doesn't get away in time.
Tensions are also rising between the Southside Serpents and the Northside. However, these two volatile groups might find shared ground and band together over a common enemy.
Based on the trailer, FP and Jughead are worried because the Ghoulies (their rival gang) has returned to Riverdale with a vengeance! And, from the few clips we see, The Black Hood isn't the only villain with an ax to grind.
Cars on fire, glass being shattered, and groups of people ready to fight to the death are some of the clips ramping up the drama. The Ghoulies want blood against the group that betrayed them. Unlike the petty town fights we've seen before, the Ghoulies are vicious and cruel.
Plus, they've got an ally that is adding plenty of fuel: Penny Peabody is back!
The snake charmer is grinning with pure joy and malice over the destruction she's causing. What did she tell the Ghoulies? How did she get involved with them?
Penny is just as dangerous as the Ghoulies. This battle could be fought (and won) over fire and blood.
Why does Hermione have a gun?!
The current mayoral candidate is frantic to protect herself over an unknown enemy. After we see her warning Alice and Betty about The Black Hood being on the loose, the quick clips we see of Hermione next show the threads of her scheme unraveling around her.
What did Hermione get herself involved in? Who is she pointing the gun at?
With The Black Hood hunting down sinners, she could potentially be a target. The killer did ambush her mayoral debate, after all.
