Things are getting heated on Riverdale, thanks to all the fighting going on at Riverdale High and Stonewall Prep. But while most of the characters apparently get violent in the Feb. 5 episode, Veronica escapes all that, instead taking a trip to a brand new city, where she helps introduce a new character to the Archieverse. If you've been waiting for the appearance of Katy Keene, you're going to love the Riverdale Season 4, Episode 12 promo.
According to the official synopsis of the upcoming Riverdale episode, titled "Men of Honor," Veronica (Camila Mendes) is headed to her old stomping grounds in New York City and will catch up with her pal Katy Keene (Lucy Hale) while there. This isn't the first time Riverdale has delved into Ronnie's past: Previously, fans met Nick St. Claire (Graham Phillips), a frenemy of Veronica's who wreaked havoc on Riverdale when he came to town. Unlike Nick, though, it looks like Katy will be a much more positive presence in the Archieverse.
It's also the perfect setup to the characters' eponymous spinoff show Katy Keene, which premieres the next night, Thursday, Feb. 6, at 8 p.m. ET on The CW. The new series is set five years ahead of the events in RIverdale, and will be all about Katy and her friends' journeys to make it in the Big Apple.
But before that, fans will have to get through Wedensday's Riverdale, and aside from the Veronica-Katy moments, it looks like it's going to be a rough one. Even though the title of the episode is "Men of Honor," it looks like the boys will up to some less-than-honorable activities: Jughead (Cole Sprouse) will be challenging his Stonewall roommate Bret (Sean Depner) to a duel, which seems to take place in some kind of fighting ring in a Stonewall classroom. Meanwhile, Archie (KJ Apa) gets thrown into a bathroom mirror at Riverdale High. It all looks very intense, but honestly, that's par for the course on Riverdale.
Season 4 of Riverdale continues on Wednesday, Feb. 5, at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
