‘Riverdale’ Plans a Murder in the Season 4 Finale (VIDEO)

Something’s clearly not right with Principal Honey (Kerr Smith), but is the solution really murder? Well, the makeshift Season 4 finale is titled “Killing Mr. Honey” and this is Riverdale, so maybe? (Honestly, is there anything this show could do that would shock you at this point?)

In the episode directed by series star Mädchen Amick, Jughead (Cole Sprouse) receives a letter from the University of Iowa asking him to submit a story. He comes up with a twisted tale about the gang’s revenge fantasy against Principal Honey for all the ways he’s ruined their senior year.

That tale appears to be what we see in the promo (below). “The one thing that would stop Mr. Honey is if we killed him,” Betty (Lili Reinhart) says. And no one should be surprised by how many of the teens have experience getting rid of a dead body.

But do they know about Principal Honey’s connection to the “Scarlet Suite” in the Riverdale video store? He found out the FBI shut the store down after they found the suite and its tapes inside — including a snuff video of Clifford Blossom killing Jason.

Will Principal Honey still be in a position of power at Riverdale High by the end of the episode? That may depend on what’s going on in the photos below.
