Riverdale Season 5 Episode 9 Recap

The ninth episode of season 5 is titled “Chapter 85”: Destroyer. We see Archie and Veronica doing their best to motivate the school football team (the Bulldogs) to break their cold streak. Veronica even made a sorry deal with Hiram to keep the Bulldogs in the league. The bet is that if the Bulldogs score a goal they will stay in the game, but if it is a shutout, the team will voluntarily withdraw. Even after the transfer of the best soccer player from Riverdale High to Stonewall, the Bulldogs manage to score 7 points in the game with the help of new signings. Interestingly, Reggie refuses to be a part of Hiram’s plans, forcing Hiram to train Stonewall himself.

As for the Coopers, they are going through some of their darkest moments. Betty struggles to keep her sanity, while Alice is convinced that Polly is dead. When Betty learns from Glen that the blood found in the phone booth matches Polly’s rare blood type, she takes matters into her own hands. Betty walks down the lonely highway and desperately tries to extract information from the truckers. She even takes one of them hostage and is ready to kill him when she is interrupted by a call from Jughead.

It turns out that Jughead asks for help because his student Lerman is missing. Curiously, he meets Lerman on the highway, and it is not the first time something like this has happened to him. It seems that the story of the aliens and the men of the night is coming to an end. Glen says he’s taking over Polly’s file and tells Alice that Betty lied saying the blood didn’t match Polly’s. Then again, Kevin is finally admitting to something that he has swept under the rug for many years: He is ashamed to be gay. We learn that her insecurity stems from a thoughtless comment her mother made in the past.
