Last night, Riverdale Season 4 started on a somber note. Following the death of actor Luke Perry, the titular town of this CW drama found itself mourning the loss of Perry’s character, Fred Andrews. As Archie learns to navigate the world without his father, and his friends work out how to support him, new mysteries begin to brew and revenge starts to creep over the horizon.
