The end of Riverdale Season 2 is almost here, and we’ve got your first look at “Chapter Thirty-Five: Brave New World”. The episode doesn’t air until May 16 at 8/7c, and if you’re trying to avoid spoilers for this week’s episode “Chapter Thirty-Four: Judgement Night“, well… Maybe look away?

That’s not to say there are huge spoilers, mind you. We don’t find out if Hal is the Black Hood, or where Chic is, or even if Lili Reinhart has a secret twin. Heck, you don’t even find out if Fangs is dead.

But there are still a few things we can suss out, starting with this episode description:

ELECTION DAY — With Fred (Luke Perry) trailing in the polls, Archie (KJ Apa) steps in to lend a hand in his dad’s mayoral campaign. Veronica (Camila Mendes) stays one step ahead after uncovering Hiram’s (Mark Consuelos) latest scheme. Elsewhere, Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch) finalizes her emancipation from her mother, while FP (Skeet Ulrich) makes a surprising announcement to Jughead (Cole Sprouse) and the Serpents. Finally, Betty (Lili Reinhart) confronts her darkest demons. Marisol Nichols, Madchen Amick, Ashleigh Murray and Casey Cott also star. Steven A. Adelson directed the episode written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa

So seems like the election is still on, despite the riots in Riverdale in “Judgement Night”. We can also assume a schism in the Lodge family, Cheryl surviving the Black Hood’s attack, and that FP will announce he’s all in on that whole “#Falice” thing. JK. Maybe.

Anyway, on to the photos!

– Varchie seems to be going strong.

– Fred is drinking a cup of his own liberal tears.

– Looks like Cheryl and Veronica have a confrontation in the bathroom… But about what?

– McMantle also seems to be going strong, as Josie and Reggie snuggle in the common room.
