On Wednesday's Riverdale, "Chapter Forty-Four: No Exit," Archie (KJ Apa) came face-to-face with his biggest threat yet. No, it's not Hiram Lodge (Mark Consuelos), or even the Black Hood. The person who could take down the "Red Paladin" is not a person at all, but... a bear? At the end of the episode, poor Archiekins was found unconscious and bleeding out after being mauled, Revenant-style, by a grizzly... and it's possible that he won't survive into the next episode.
I mean, okay — he probably will. This is Riverdale! If Fred (Luke Perry) can get shot (twice!!!), and Jughead (Cole Sprouse) beaten by a gang within an inch of his life... Archie can survive this wild run-in.
