One of the biggest mysteries on "Riverdale" was answered on Thursday, as it was revealed that Jason Blossom's killer was none other than his own father, Clifford Blossom! While the Clifford Blossom issue may seem like a suicide, it may also be possible that someone actually killed Clifford and made it look like that. Simple, short, but wholly horrifying in the implications it has for next season. This will mark as the season one finale which will deal with the aftermath of "Anatomy of a Murder" as Jason Blossom's killer was finally revealed. That guy is in deep up to his eyeballs in it and at a minimum Jughead's not going to be living with FP anytime soon because he might be in jail for a very long time. He says he ran Jason as a drug mule in exchange for a getaway auto and some money for him and Polly. Learning who killed Jason was only the beginning. Because of their actual crime in breaking and entering, their parents forbid them from going to the cops and getting involved.
The synopsis of the season 1 finale, titled "The Sweet Hereafter", states that Archie (KJ Apa) and Veronica (Camila Mendes) will strengthen their bond, while Betty (Lili Reinhart) will talk to her mother Alice (Madchen Amick) on how she has had it with the way the Cooper family brushes everything off.
RAS: Correct, correct, and the one thing that you won't find out in 12 is that the evil things we know Clifford has been doing are just the tip of the iceberg. Before he takes it on the lam, however, he passes them one more lead to follow up on - the involvement of another South Side Serpent named Mustang (CHRISTOPHER ROSAMOND), and the location of a package F.P. wanted hidden as insurance, insurance he's now told Joaquin to ignore. Until the gang found that flash drive that had the proof he was innocent. When the kids see the tape, Betty immediately calls Cheryl and warns her to get out of her house.
This interview also took place before the series was picked up for a second season, so there is a reference to her hopes for a second season, which we have left intact. Regardless it'll be tough to figure out: the police came to arrest Clifford and found him hanging in the syrup barn, surrounded by drugs.
Seems like there's more to the story - are we going to discover the reasons why Clifford killed his son?
There's some other supporting drama that I skimmed through on the way: Cheryl slapping Jughead.
Was deciding that Clifford was the killer where the idea of linking the Blossom and Cooper families through blood came from? "I feel like there are strands and tentacles coming out of the Jason Blossom mystery that we'll always be playing". [Laughs] And so what we did is we went in-we hadn't written the season, and things obviously change as you write and as you work with actors and you see what relationships develop-but we went in with three candidates who might have killed Jason.
