Last night’s episode of Riverdale teased a dark future for one of the show’s (literally) smallest characters, Jellybean Jones (Trinity Likins).
Here’s what you need to know: On Chapter Fifty-Three of The CW series, titled “Jawbreaker,” Jellybean makes the amateur mistake of befriending Ricky (Nico Bustamante). You probably remember him as the young boy who scammed Archie (KJ Apa) back in Chapter Forty-Nine. (You know, when he pretended to be Joaquin’s brother and then tried to kill the “Red Paladin”—aka Archie.)
At the end of this week’s installment, FP (Skeet Ulrich) and Jughead (Cole Sprouse) are questioning Kurtz (Jonathan Whitesell) at the police station for working with the Gargoyle King. When Kurtz reveals that Baby Teeth’s (Connor Paton) death is only the beginning, Jughead soon realizes that Jellybean is unprotected.
Cut to Ricky leading Jellybean into the woods before introducing her to the Gargoyle King.
