A lot has changed on Riverdale during the six seasons it has been on the air, including a huge time jump, the appearance of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina‘s Kiernan Shipka reprising her title role from the spinoff series, and the new wrinkle that several of the main characters have begun to develop superpowers. It’s likely difficult to sustain these over-the-top developments, but the writers of the series have consistently managed to one-up themselves. With Riverdale officially ending with the upcoming season 7, they now have even more license to completely throw caution to the wind and dive into every zany idea they have, pulling every plot thread to its farthest extent.

Anyone who has watched Riverdale knows that the seemingly idyllic town has been under major threat before. As the show’s twists and turns deepened over the past five seasons, the characters have had to face off against everything from a widespread drug problem to serial killers and a killer cult. These heightened stakes will likely be coming from the supernatural threat posed by new villain Percival Pickens, and given the episode title’s reference to the post-apocalyptic 1984 film Night of the Cometthings could start to look very bad for the town.

So far, there aren’t any further details about the plot of the episode. This is likely due to the fact that the two episodes that precede the finale – “Return to Rivervale” and “The Stand” – have not aired yet, so the show’s creators want to avoid spoilers until the penultimate episode has actually been seen. However, in the week leading up to the Riverdale season 6 finale, fans will be sure to get a much closer look at what exactly might be doing down in this climactic episode.
