With only two more episodes left after this week's episode "Chapter Ninety-Three: Dance of Death" (uh-oh), The CW's Riverdale feels like it's ticking down to something big as a number of the storylines begin to weave together. During this round (with preview images, overview & episode promo below), Tabitha (Erinn Westbrook), Jughead (Cole Sprouse), and Betty (Lili Reinhart) team up to investigate a disappearance, while Penelope (Nathalie Boltt) looks to drive a wedge between Kevin (Casey Cott) and Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch). And while an explosion at the mines leaves several lives teetering on the edge, it's Hiram's (Mark Consuelos) long-term future among the living-and-breathing that has us really curious.
