In the last few episodes of Riverdale, it’s been an emotional roller coaster for Cheryl Blossom, who has been one of the antagonists of the first season. The next episode will finally reveal who murdered Jason Blossom as Madelaine Petsch, who plays Cheryl, confirmed it in a recent interview.
In the latest edition of Entertainment Weekly’s Spoiler Room with Natalie Abrams, a fan asked the reporter about some scoop on Cheryl as we head into the last two episodes of the season. Abrams revealed a quote from show-runner and executive producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa who teased about how these two remaining episodes will explore where Cheryl’s allegiances truly lie.
“She loved her brother and her brother loved her, and that’s been taken away from her, so in a weird way, even though we’re following Jughead and Betty’s investigation of the crime, what’s pulsing underneath is always that this essential part of her life is gone. So even though she’s not investigating, I feel like there’s a deep question and devoid in her that has to be answered and filled.”
