Jug (Cole Sprouse) spends his Halloween night locked up in a coffin. Credit to Sprouse as he emanates fear and panic. Before being drugged and locked up, he learns of the mysterious disappearances of four students, and the 'Stonewall Four' as they're called are still not found. Jug buried alive is sickening and can hardly be excused as a prank, but again, this is Riverdale and if it's their first Halloween episode, guess pulling out all stops is the way its meant to go.
