Chapter Twenty: Tales From the Darkside
The Black Hood leaves a threatening letter for the people of Riverdale. If they keep doing wrong, they will be punished.
Penny Peabody calls in her favor. While at Pop Tate's Chock'lit Shoppe, she says that Jughead will need to pick up a crate in Greendale and deliver it to the Southside. She'll use the cut of the cash to help FP in prison.
Jughead asks Archie for help. They use Fred's truck to transport the box. The tire flattens while Archie asks Jughead about giving up being a Serpent.
A passerby gives Jughead (and the crate) a ride to Greendale for $18.
Archie sees a bloody deer walk by after AAA gives him a spare tire.
Jughead finds a dead deer in the back of the truck. The passerby tells him a tale of "The Riverdale Reaper," a man who broke into a house and shot every member of a family one by one.
The passerby tries to stick Jughead with a diner bill so that he can steal the crate. Archie arrives in time to pay for the meal and save Jughead.
Jughead and Archie deliver the crate. The clients inform them that Penny named Jughead as the new delivery boy now that the Serpents were taking over for the Ghoulies.
Archie begs Jughead to get out of the gang. Jughead says he will try.
FP is visibly fine when he visits the prison. Penny lied about FP being attacked. She recorded Jughead delivering the drugs; she blackmails him into doing future work for her.

Josie asks Chuck to give her a ride home and they stop at Pop Tate's Chock'lit Shoppe. Chuck says he changed, but she doesn't believe him. The two dance.
