Luke Perry’s final episode on Riverdale aired on Wednesday, and it was just as bittersweet as you’d imagine it would be. During the episode titled “Chapter Fifty-Four: Fear the Reaper,” Perry’s character Fred Andrews has a heart to heart with his son Archie (KJ Apa) following the death of his friend, Randy, who he fought in the boxing ring. Though his death is actually caused by drugs, that doesn’t stop Archie from feeling any less guilty about the sudden death. In true Fred Andrews form, the father tries to comfort Archie in his time of need.
“Son, from everything you’ve said, it’s clear that Randy died from those drugs,” Fred tells Archie. “An autopsy will support that. You’re innocent.”
“I’m not, dad. I knew,” Archie replies. “I knew Randy was using. I could have stopped the fight, but I didn’t want to forfeit. I’m never stepping into that ring ever again.”
