Do you know what one of the things you definitely have to respect about The CW's Riverdale? Six seasons in, if you read the summary of an episode from the past three seasons to someone not familiar with the long-running Archie-verse series, they would swear you were either off your meds or on too many. Which is a perfect way for us to segue into the following preview images, overview, and promo for this weekend's S06E18, where things get frogs-and-plague-of-locusts "Biblical" for our heroes. But that's not all, because we also have the official overview for S06E19 "The Witches of Riverdale" (hitting screens after a week off, on July 10th). And as you can probably tell from the title, Riverdale is about the get a return visit from Kiernan Shipka's Sabrina Spellman.
