Last night’s episode of Riverdale is leading me to believe that we’re days away from finding out who is the real Gargoyle King. And while I originally thought Hermione Lodge (Marisol Nichols) was the mastermind, I’m starting to think that Gladys Jones (Gina Gershon) is the culprit, and here’s why.
On Chapter Fifty-Three of Riverdale, titled “Fear the Reaper,” Gladys, FP (Skeet Ulrich) and Jughead (Cole Sprouse) team up to rescue Jellybean (Trinity Likins), who was taken by the Gargoyle King during last week’s episode.
After completing a series of quests, Jellybean is returned home safely, though the exchange resulted in a trip to the hospital for Gladys. When Jughead visits her, he suggests that she and Jellybean stay in Riverdale…for good.
But Gladys isn’t having it. So, she alters the plan to exclude herself, saying, “It’ll probably be best for everyone if I just disappear for a little bit.”
