'''Veronica:''' I get it. Thank you, Jughead.

Grappling with the fear over Black Hood coming back to kill his father and his guilt over Miss Grundy's death, Archie turns to desperate measures to cope, including turning to drugs and purchasing a gun. Meanwhile, Pop's Diner is on the brink of closing down as the citizens of Riverdale grow frightened of the "haunted death diner" where Fred was shot. Wanting to save the long-lasting town landmark, Betty and Veronica hatch a plan to reignite the public's interest in the diner while enlisting the help of Josie & the Pussycats along with Cheryl and the River Vixens. Hiram attempts to convince Veronica to give him a second chance by offering to help in the event to save Pop's, but unbeknownst to her, his intentions are less than altruistic. In a desperate attempt to get FP a lesser sentence, Jughead makes a dangerous deal with a shady Serpent lawyer, Penny Peabody, with unforeseen consequences. Betty convinces Cheryl to plead leniency for FP during trial in exchange for the footage of Jason's murder, which Cheryl and Penelope watch in hopes of gaining closure. Even though the combination of the event and Hiram's donations save Pop's, Alice informs Betty that they may have just opened the door for crime to spread through the Northside of Riverdale. Finally, Moose and Midge are shot multiple times by the Black Hood in their car on a deserted road.

Added DiffLines:

* FelonyMisdemeanor: Inverted. Jughead and Betty actually consider it ''wrong'' that his father is facing a severe punishment for kidnapping a teenager, helping cover up that teenager's murder, giving several false confessions, being a known gang member and drug dealer (who is confirmed to target teenagers amongst his consumers) and tampering with evidence. It's a bit understandable on Jughead's part, being that it's his father, but not so much on Bettty's part.

Added DiffLines:

* SavingTheOrphanage: A Variant. Also, it gets deconstructed by Alice, who tells Betty that thanks to her efforts, more drug deals will be happening at Pop's, as well as more Serpents arriving and Hiram Lodge having a hold on an important part of Riverdale.

Added DiffLines:

* AppealToWorseProblems: Jughead does a kinder version of this, telling Veronica that she should consider giving her father another chance since other people aren't really in a position to do so.
