Right, well, exactly.
Don't tell her, either.
Please. What decade is this?

Between the two of us, I think we

Letting me be a River Vixen again?

That's generous of him, after

So don't trust me. Watch me like a hawk.
We're all on the same team now.

Excuse me. Sorry, I gotta go.
- To help me get my sea legs.
- Have you met Josie?
It's been months.
We all did.
What is up with you today, J?
Or with Archie.
Last time I fired
someone, it was not good.
Maybe you could be my co-host.
But not more skinny
and beautiful than you.
Do you wanna talk about it?
We can go somewhere and talk.
May I see some identification?
I should've, but Mom and
Dad... They stopped...
Oh, he was so happy, Betty.
Does he know that I'm here?
I met Josie and Melody when we
were all working at Power Records.
So, Myles, you being a
professional jazz man,
Well, I figure as long as the kids are
havin' fun, that's the point, right?
You hated Jason, and now Polly
is pregnant with his baby.
Myles, Fred Andrews is a working
man who lives in the real world.
I caught my mom and Fred
Andrews in an intimate moment.
Dad, if I tank at the
Variety Show, would you...
- Mom, I've been thinking...
I was gonna apologize to you.
I'm betting you can negotiate new terms.
They're parents. They're all crazy.
Why didn't you tell
me your dad was coming?
Co-lead. And only on the bridge.

Oh, there's nothing to tell.
You wanna meet him?
Hey, try to remember, she
is burying her brother.
Talk to me about your music.
Where are your sheets?
People with grudges against us,
Were you guys close?
And all this started after
Jason and Polly got together?
Right, Josie and the
Pussycats. Oh, I'm a big fan.
She didn't say anything.
Your sheets are sloppy, rushed.
How is he, by the way?
I didn't even get a
chance to say goodbye.
Everything with Jason's been so...
You are only going to make things worse.
Jason convinced me we had
to combine them into one.
Under the mattresses,

Your wedding was the last

That is none of your business.
And one day great-grandfather Blossom

As a new school year begins, the town of Riverdale is reeling from the recent, tragic death of high school golden boy Jason Blossom — and nothing feels the same.
- ...and I'd go home, write them down.
- You don't like reading poetry.
- Both of us. Together.
- We're sophomores.
Hey, Dad. First day of school
and I'm already late.
I mean, just think of your poor sister.
Riverdale High first opened its doors
in 1941, and...
The Pussycats are building a brand.
In that case, mind putting in a word?
I've tried every flavor of boy but orange.
Which is why I've asked the school board
not to cancel the back-to-school semi-formal.
We're civil. How about you?
Of the secrets we hold
This year, it's all about Cheryl trying
to win the Best Supporting Psycho Oscar...
Well, you're a total smoke show now,
I mean it.
There is no one else I can take lessons from.
Believe me. I've looked.
Who's lighting fireworks
at 6 in the morning?
Well, you haven't seen our big finish yet.
- It didn't end well.
- In fact...
Why did...? Why did you defend me?
So when my mom said
we were moving to Riverdale...
But it's my mom who broke her.
No, I'm not really in the headspace
for a dance.
I made the cheerleading squad.
You think so?
What have you done?
Multiple secrets, actually.
And maybe we could have done something...
Did that go okay?
So do you miss New York?
Ronnie, what is it?
What are you working on?
...whatever happened, just talk to her, man.
