The latest preview for Riverdale Season 1 opens with Jughead Jones (Cole Sprouse) confronting his father. While we learned earlier on Riverdale Season 1 that Jughead’s pop was a member of the SouthSide Serpents, we didn’t get a real interaction between the elder and younger Joneses until now. Jughead questions his dad as to why he doesn’t want to see their family back together as the man seemingly descends further into alcoholism.
This substance problem was hinted at earlier on Riverdale Season 1 as Fred Andrews (Luke Perry) seemed to blame himself for Jughead’s father’s descent into alcoholism after he had to fire the man from his construction company. Jughead tells his pal Archie (K.J. Apa) that he won’t be giving up on his dad just yet, however, and soon there is a confrontation between Mr. Jones and Mr. Andrews. Mr. Jones is seen shoving Fred while shouting “He’s my son!”
From there, Jughead’s father is seen declaring to his son that he will get his act together. This promise is followed up by Sheriff Keller showing up at Riverdale High to ask Jughead to come down to the station with him. Jughead walks out of Riverdale High with the Sheriff at his side and onlookers gawking. When he finally arrives and sits down across from the Sheriff, we see the Sheriff sliding a folder across a desk to Jughead who only responds with a request for his lawyer.
With that, the preview for the fifteenth episode of Riverdale Season 1 entitled “In A Lonely Place” comes to a close.
