'Riverdale' Season One Finale is Headed for 'The Sweet Hereafter"

The CW's hit drama 'Riverdale,' based on the characters from Archie Comics, is about to conclude their first season this Thursday after an explosive episode last week.


It'll be hard to top the revelation of Jason Blossom's real killer in last week's “Chapter Twelve: Anatomy of a Murder” episode but there's never any shortage of drama in Riverdale. Undoubtedly, everyone will be dealing with the aftermath causing some more rifts among friends and frenemies alike. The trailer below promises "new secrets" and "new mysteries."The season finale episode entitled “Chapter Thirteen: The Sweet Hereafter” is written by executive producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa who's also written the comic books series and knows these characters better than anyone. It should be one hell of a cliffhanger.


SEASON FINALE SYNOPSIS — Archie (KJ Apa) and Veronica (Camila Mendes) continue to grow closer. Betty (Lili Reinhart) is tired of her family acting as if nothing has happened and confronts her mother. Jughead (Cole Sprouse) finds himself in an unexpected situation, leaving Archie and the gang scrambling. Hermione (Marisol Nichols) makes Fred (Luke Perry) an offer that seems too good to be true. Meanwhile, the truth about Blossom’s family business is revealed leaving Cheryl (Madelain Petsch) to take matters into her own hands. Madchen Amick and Ashleigh Murray also star. Lee Toland Krieger directed the episode written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (#113). Original airdate 5/11/2017.


Archie (KJ Apa), Veronica (Camila Mendes), and Josie & The Pussycats (Ashleigh Murray, Hayley Law, Asha Bromfield) perform "Share it with You" in the Riverdale Season One finale!

“Chapter Thirteen: The Sweet Hereafter” debuts on May 11th at 9/8c on The CW and May 12th on The CW App and Netflix for viewers outside the United States.

REVIEW: 'Redneck' #2 by Donny Cates, Lisandro Estherren, and Dee Cunniffe

'Redneck' arrived a month ago redefining the vampire genre by not giving into convention or cliché. In fact, if you've read the first two issues, the vampire angle serves more as subtext than its selling point. It's the perfect approach to this character-driven southern fried drama that simmers with tension and intrigue.

★★★★☆ (4/5)
The Bowman's way of life just got upended and what was once a peaceful and secluded existence is on the verge of war. The vampires of Texas keep to themselves, raise their cattle, drink its blood and sell the meat through their BBQ joint. Seems like a brilliant front to keep them in the shadows while staking out a living. All that is threatened when one of their own is killed after a night on the town. This issues fills in the holes to what might have happened and what the hell is…

WONDER WOMAN OF THE DAY: Fitness Model Gia Macool Embodies the Amazon Princess

The closest we'll ever get, probably, to superheroes in real life is through the great work of cosplayers. You see them at every pop culture convention from the very basic to extremely elaborate costume design. However, you don't have to be a cosplayer to enjoy dressing up as your favorite superhero from time to time. Take fitness model and entrepreneur Gia Macool for example. An accomplished fitness competitor and model, Macool is also a big fan of DC Comics' Wonder Woman. She shows her love of the iconic Amazon Princess in her fitness wear, meal prep accessories and even a full blown photo shoot in a Wonder Woman costume. 

For decades comics have featured very muscular superheroes, male and female, epitomizing the human form at its strongest. So when bodybuilders and fitness pros decide to suit up as these costumed heroes, they are the embodiment of those fictional characters in the flesh. Macool looks like she stepped out of the pages of a Wonder Woman comic with a suit …
