When Riverdale resumes for its third season on October 10th, you can expect to see a few new faces in the mysterious small town.
And given that the bulk of the series has focused on murders, you shouldn't be too shocked when I tell you not all of the new folks in town have good intentions for our favorite Serpents and/or honorary Serpents.
You may remember that at the end of Riverdale Season 2, Polly offered to introduce her mom Alice to a man from the farm that she credited with helping her cope with Jason Blossom’s death.

In fact, actress Madchen Amick even teased that "Alice and FP might explore a few old habits."
And by old habits, we mean the ones that lead to Chic in the first place.
Hal may be behind bars for now, but we haven’t seen the last of him or dealt with all of his pent-up anger.
The Black Hood is now engrained in the mythology of this twisted little town, and showrunner Robert Aguirre-Sacasa teased that " there’s some ski mask out there that could pop up. "
Is he referring to Hal? Or maybe Betty whose dark-side still has yet to be fully explored?
Betty will also be getting caught up in all this "farm" drama because along with Edgar comes his daughter Evelyn, who is de..
