This Hidden 'Riverdale' Clue Proves Jughead Is Alive

Okay, here’s what we know for sure: 1. later in this season of Riverdale, Jughead will go missing. 2. the rest of the core four will end up covered in blood in the middle of the woods, burning clothes—including Jughead’s iconic beanie.

While, obviously, we’re meant to fear for Jughead’s life (and we did for, like, a minute), it’s very unlikely our narrator will be murdered. Unless, of course, the theory that Riverdale is just Jughead’s fictional novel is true and he writes himself out of the story…but let’s not get ahead of ourselves.

During last week’s episode, an eagle-eyed Riverdale stan—I swear, y’all should work for the F.B.I.—noticed a major clue that might prove Jughead is not the bonfire victim. Here’s what @VanGoghNotVanGo posted on Reddit:

First things first, I had to go back to the episode and find this moment. Sure enough:

That sounds…remarkably similar to Jughead’s current situation, right? I don’t trust those Stonewall Prep students or Mr. Chipping as far as I could throw them (not far at all).

Furthermore, commenters on the thread noticed even more The Secret History related hints. “Jug’s douchy roommate is named Bret after Bret Easton Ellis, who went to uni with Donna Tartt,” @keine_fragen pointed out. For some background, Donna Tartt is the author of The Secret History, and Bret Easton Ellis is the author and screenwriter behind American Psycho. Don’t forget the Stonewall student’s name is Donna Sweett,” @pearlgirl6789 added.

Sounds like a clear homage to me. TBH, I like this theory way better than the idea of Jughead dying.
