My Own Theories of Riverdale (Real and Farfetched)
- Hal & the Murder Board Evidence: Misdirection, mostly. I think, he believes that Alice (or Polly, but most likely Alice) may have something to do with Jason’s murder so he stole the evidence in order to a) see it for himself, b) think of ways to protect his family.
- The Car Fire: I think this has more to do with the drugs than the actual murder of Jason. I think they were trying to get rid of drug evidence. The drugs may be a part of why Jason was murdered but I’m suspecting the fire itself was to burn the drug dealing evidence.
- FP & The Letter Jacket: Assuming he stole the jacket from the car, it’s a weird thing to steal. UNLESS (and this is my farfetched theory but it’s also a teen soap so anything is possible), it has sentimental value. So I just want to put it out there that what if Mrs Blossom and FP had an affair and Jason and Cheryl are not actually Blossoms but actually Penelope and FP’s. (It would also tie into the episode synopsis that says things about FP’s past he never thought would come out are, or whatever it said.) Also, imagine Jughead and Cheryl discovering they are actually half-siblings. Imagine.
- The Actual Murder of Jason Blossom: Is either going to come back to FakeGrundy and/or the far reaching hand of Hiram Lodge from jail. Remember the law of a gun introduced in the first act, must be fired. (Or, in this case, be relevant for more than a four episode gross arc of her sleeping with a minor.)
