'Riverdale' Heads Back in Time for a 'Breakfast Club'-Themed Murder Mystery
By Meredith B. Kile
Riverdale is throwing it back!
The CW drama is headed back in time on Wednesday, exploring the parents' years at Riverdale High with a bit of creative casting -- and a deadly twist.
All of Riverdale's main stars play the younger versions of their parents in the ep -- with a special appearance by Mark Consuelos' son, Michael, as young Hiram -- which puts a dark spin on The Breakfast Club, as the early '90s teens come together in detention to play an all-consuming game of Gryphons and Gargoyles.
"The Midnight Club was when we all were in detention together and they uncovered this secret game that everybody started playing," Mädchen Amick told ET's Leanne Aguilera ahead of Wednesday's epic episode, which features Alice telling Betty (Lili Reinhart) the story of the group's harrowing hijinks. "It really takes you into a dark, twisted, mental space, and then we ended up losing a life along the way."
Check out this week's episode of Sweetwater Secrets for more on the fun flashback, and scroll down to see the cast in their '90s duds for the epic episode!
Riverdale airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
