Have you been giving Chic (Hart Denton) the benefit of the doubt on Riverdale? Maybe it's time to reconsider.
In this exclusive clip from Wednesday's episode, Jughead (Cole Sprouse) and Chic come face-to-face for the first time when Jug swings by to pick up Betty (Lili Reinhart). Their brief interaction is enough to convince you that Betty's brother is very seriously disturbed, if you weren't already aware.
Chic asks Jughead if he knows what happened at the Cooper house — you know, the time Chic probably killed that guy? — and threatens that it won't be good for Betty or Alice (Madchen Amick) if Jughead tells anyone about it. Um, that's a pretty intense warning to give someone who helped your family get rid of a body, Chic.
Even more important than the threat is the fact that Chic's serial killer vibes have been turned up to about an 11 and it's starting to freak people out. Even Betty doesn't seem stoked to be around her brother any longer than she has to be, and Betty loves hanging around dangerous people.
Is Jughead going to tell Betty about the strange encounter or take steps to make sure Chic doesn't actually act on his seriously creepy vibes?
Riverdale airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on The CW.
