Jughead’s dead body revealed in Riverdale. But, is he dead?
Questions arise on Cole Sprouse leaving Riverdale season 4 might set to be one of season 4’s big mysteries alongside the videotapes.
In the previous season finale. The rest of the core four stood around a fire to burn. Their clothes and the iconic beanie of MIA Jughead. The entire fandom was enforced to believe the death of Jug and the departure of Cole Sprouse from Riverdale.
Going back to a menacing scene of 4th episode of 4th season, titled ‘Halloween,’ featuring FP Jones and Betty Cooper showed a confirmation towards Jughead’s fate or not? A flash-forward scene appeared at the end of the episode featuring FP and Betty staring at a sheet-covered body in the coroner’s office. Soon the sheet was removed; it seemed to be cold, grey, and dead Jug on the slab.
The scene seems to happen shortly after the search party shown in the episode trailer as Betty was spotted in the same outfit. The exact appearance of the scene is still a mystery. As of now, we know that the jughead is still alive in the mid-season finale. Because he’s going to be face to face with his grandfather, the OG Forsythe Pendleton Jones. It’s also been trailered that we will learn more about what happened during the flash forward to spring break in that episode.
Dead or faking his death?
There could be some connection with his half-brother Charles and his involvement with the FBI. Was his death fake? There’s a cover-up, and judging by the flash-forward in season 3 finale, and it looks like betty knows something. She was pretty determined that everyone needed to burn their clothes and all shreds of evidence, even Jug’s hat. As a new member of the junior FBI, she could be working with Charles or even against him.
