Meanwhile, Hiram is worried about Riverdale High opening. He is thinking of what he can do with Reggie to ruin this.

After, Ronnie looks around for a shop where she can open a jewelry store. Smithers asks her about what Chad might think. Back at school, Archie and Betty flirt in the break room. They talk about a safe place they can hook up later tonight.

That night, Jug works at Pops. It’s dead. He interviews Pop’s granddaughter. She left a very successful job to run the shop, he notes. They continue to talk until students come in. The students notice Jug is their teacher.

At the school after hours, Archie and Betty get busy in the back of a shop car. They are interrupted by the fire alarm. They discover something on fire in the hall. Students run from the scene.

The next day, Archie has to explain to the principal, the sheriff, Toni, and the others why he was near the school the night before. They think it is the students from Stonewall, specifically the football players. Archie pays them a visit, punching Reggie, their coach in the mouth. He tells the team he cannot wait to kick their ass on the field.

Jug has a hard time getting his students interested in Mice and Men. They leave little trinkets on his desk, teasing him about working at Pop’s. Archie asks the principal to restart the football team. He agrees it is okay. Down the hall, Ronnie is surprised by Chad’s arrival. She brings him to the teacher’s lounge.

Across town, Betty and Kevin stake out the truck stop Toni told her about. She hopes to meet a trucker who reached out to her sister the same night she disappeared. She sees the trucker when he pulls in. Betty shows her FBI badge and takes him in. He tells her he didn’t hurt Polly. She jumped out of his truck and ran.

At school, Archie is forced to tell his team they don’t have money. They hear a ruckus. Toni is strutting her cheer squad down the hall. She tells Archie she secured the funding last year. Meanwhile, Cheryl plans to auction off an oil painting she made of Jason. She is told she will get a lot of money for it. She tells Nana she might have to help Riverdale.
