The season finale of The CW's "Riverdale" has left fans and viewers gasping yet again after the murder of Jason Blossom had been resolved. Now, another crime has to be resolved when "Riverdale" Season 2 returns to the network this fall.

As both the characters and the fans of the show had to deal with the aftermath of both Jason Blossom and Clifford Blossom's deaths, another crime has been committed, and a life now hangs on a thread: Fred Andrews.

When the hit series comes back this fall, the show will tackle the repercussions of Fred Andrews' shooting and how it will impact the relationships among the characters on the Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa-created show.

Additionally, fans can expect to see how Jughead's move to the South Side high school put a strain on his relationship with Betty and the rest of the squad, and how Archie and Veronica's consummated relationship will fare moving forward.

Cheryl will be conflicted following her father's suicide

Another interesting character to follow after the events of the finale is Cheryl, who attempted suicide by drowning herself in the lake. Of course, she was saved just in the nick of time by Archie, who was soon hailed as the town hero. But if fans think that Archie's brave act could soften Cheryl's hard, broken heart, think again.

Madelaine Petsch, who plays the red-headed Cheryl Blossom on the show, admitted that her character is going to be even "colder and even meaner" in "Riverdale" season 2. But this doesn't mean that the loss of her brother and father have turned her into a complete baddie.

In fact, Petsch admitted that while Cheryl does long to belong, she has too many issues to deal with before she can probably let anyone else in. Petsch added, "She’s so egotistical."

Archie will emulate Bruce Wayne following his father's shooting

Series creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa recently spoke to Vulture about how "Riverdale" season 2 will follow the aftermath of Fred Andrews' shooting, giving an ominous hint about his fate. The writer likened Archie to Bruce Wayne, who lost his parents at a young age and eventually went on to become Gotham City's savior.

Aguirre-Sacasa admitted that the event "gives [Archie] purpose," which may be indicative about Fred's fate in the sophomore season. It may also imply that Archie will become a bigger hero than he already is when season 2 rolls around.

The show is set to return to The CW on October 11, at 8 p.m., as per Den of Geek.
