What will happen in Riverdale season 3, episode 19?

Riverdale season three, episode 19 will air Wednesday, April 24 on The CW.

The following day, the episode will be available to stream and download via Netflix UK.

The previous two seasons of Riverdale and episodes one to 18 are available to stream and download on Netflix right now.

Episode 19 in the teen drama series is called Fear the Reaper.

In the latest instalment, titled Jawbreaker, the dreaded Gargoyle’s returned to Riverdale.


To keep fans in suspense, The CW has released a promo trailer and synopsis.

The official synopsis reads: “Jellybean (played by Trinity Linkins) goes missing – When Jellybean goes missing, Jughead (Cole Sprouse), Gladys (Gina Gershon) and FP (Skeet Ulrich) follow a series of cryptic clues to get her home.

“Elsewhere, Archie (KJ Apa) faces the fallout from his latest boxing match, while Betty (Lili Reinhart) makes a major discovery about Evelyn’s (guest star Zoe De Grand’ Maison) past.

“Finally, Josie (Ashleigh Murray) makes a big decision about her future.”

The promo trailer for the upcoming episode shows FP Jones warning: “There will be a reckoning.”

At the moment it is unclear what he referring too, but it could well be in reference to Jellybean going missing and potentially being in danger.

The teens of Riverdale will also get together to save Jellybean from the Gargoyle Gang.


The trailer also reveals that a robbery has taken place in a diner in the town of Riverdale but it is unclear who is responsible.

In response to the crime, Josie McCoy said: “Now do you see why I have to get out of this town?”

Does this mean Josie McCoy is leaving Riverdale for good?

Things will also take a violent turn in the upcoming episode, with the promo trailer teasing some serious fight scenes.

Jughead Jones is seen punching somebody and Gladys Jones is caught slapping someone.

An unknown woman in the trailer also slaps Archie Andrews (KJ Apa).


The late Luke Perry will star in the upcoming episode.

Perry played the role of Archie Andrews’ father, Fred Andrews, and passed away at aged 52 from a stroke in March this year.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa said: “We’re giving ourselves a little bit of time and space before we figure out the best way to honour him.

“When I was with the crew, I said, ‘It will never be the same’, and that’s true because Luke was such a part of the show.

“His spirit – which was so generous and wise and vivacious – we hope will infuse every episode, so in my mind, every episode for the rest of time on Riverdale will have a bit of Luke in it.”
