Luke Perry got the tribute he deserved in the season four premiere of Riverdale Wednesday night.
His body was taken to a funeral home in another town, and Archie was compelled to go pick the body up. He borrowed a hearse from Reggie’s (Charles Melton) family’s car lot and headed to the town where his dad was with Veronica, Jughead (Cole Sprouse), and Betty (Lili Reinhart).
When the group picked up Fred’s truck, which was still at the site of the accident, they met Doherty’s character, who explained what had happened and asked the kids to pray with her.
While in Cherry Creek, he learned a man had confessed to the hit and run, and decided to go to the guy’s house to confront him. Once there, however, he discovered the driver was actually the man’s son, who didn’t even have a license: his dad had taken the blame.
