Riverdale fans have a witnessed a number of mysterious goings on in the town, leaving Jughead Jones (played by Cole Sprouse) enamoured by the board game Gryphons & Gargoyle.
Jughead and his girlfriend Betty Cooper (Lili Reinhart) have been working hard to figure out if the cult’s leader – The Gargoyle King – is a real person.
And while it seems as if he is real, it also looks like the creature may have some magical affinity as well.
This season has been based around the supernatural board game and what it has done to the residents of the town, most notably the parents of Jughead’s gang.
Riverdale’s episode The Midnight Club saw the story of Jughead’s father, FP Jones (Skeet Ulrich), building his relationship with Alice Cooper (Mädchen Amick).
Although their memories of the time were fond, they were eventually witness to a brutal murder by the board game.
Meanwhile this summer’s first half of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina placed a heavy emphasis on Sabrina Spellman’s (Kiernan Shipka) father, Edward Spellman (Georgie Daburas).
Now the two universes have been confirmed to co-exist, could Edward have had something to do with the beginning of the Gryphons & Gargoyles board game?
As fans know, Edward dabbled in necromancy during his early years in the Academy of Unseen Arts, and this could have been his opportunity to delve into creating the Gargoyle King.
If a young Edward created the creature and inadvertently released it into Riverdale, could this have been the beginning of the brutal bought of murders?
If the Gargoyle King is some sort of supernatural being, the team may struggle to take it down without any magic of their own.
But as the members of the team begin to play through the game more, they may be matched up with their own set of skills to take it on.
Alternatively, could the creature be linked to the board game itself?
The brutal version of Jumanji may leave Jughead and Archie Andrews (KJ Apa) to destroy the game once and for all.
Or will Sabrina make a triumphant arrival in the town to take on her father’s creation in an upcoming episode?
Earlier on in the series fans witnessed Archie being stabbed by one of his fellow inmates who was promised his freedom.
However his friends arrived just in time to get him out of prison and stow him away in the secret bunker.
Although he is quickly making a recovery, Jughead seems to have been corrupted entirely by the Gargoyle King.
Will the pair eventually be pitted against each other once again as Jughead looks as if he is switching sides?
