Riverdale Season 5 E07 Preview: Archie Fights Fire with Fire & More

The CW's Riverdale returns to being all sorts of time-jumpy this Wednesday with "Chapter Eighty-Three: Fire in the Sky" as viewers juggle a new set of mystery and drama while also filling out their scorecards as the long-running series fills in gaps from the gang's past. This week, Archie (KJ Apa) looks to rebuild Riverdale's fire department while Toni (Vanessa Morgan) looks to get Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch) back into the game. Betty (Lili Reinhart), Alice (Madchen Amick), and Kevin's (Casey Cott) in-no-way-resembling-'The-Silence-of-the-Lambs'-or-'Big-Sky' investigation leads them directly to Hiram (Mark Consuelos)- and there's no way that's a good thing (and yes, we're still glaring at you, Charles Melton's Reggie). Meanwhile, Veronica (Camila Mendes) has a plan to boost the town's business district despite her uber-creepy hubby (Chris Mason), while Jughead (Cole Sprouse) and Tabitha (Erinn Westbrook) go small-town "X-Files" and go hunting moth men. Here's a look at preview images, episode overview, and promo for the next episode of Riverdale– returning Wednesday, March 10:
