Riverdale Season 2 will continue a lot of twists, including the one involving Jughead (Cole Sprouse) and FP Jones (Skeet Ulrich). The latter was left in jail for some apparent reason so a legal battle looms for Juggy’s dad to be set free.
As most know, both Jughead and FP are easily associated with the Southside Serpents. It appears that someone will be helping out from that side and commission a lawyer to make that happen. The person who will act out that role is Brit Morgan, the same actress who played Livewire on Supergirl.
Riverdale Season 2 welcomes Snake Charmer
Morgan will play out the role of Penny Peabody aka Snake Charmer. According to Deadline, she will be the lawyer to help out the Southside Serpents father and son tandem in exchange for favors.
Apparently, it seems like a double-cross of sorts and it looks like Jughead will realize that in the long run. There is no telling what kind of favors Peabody will be asking for though it is more than likely to be a controversial one.
Folks who have followed Morgan on Supergirl or even on True Blood (where she plays the werewolf Debbie Pelt) can easily see how she is perfect for the role. With Riverdale turning out to be a town full of mysteries and twists, adding another sinister figure to the mix should be utterly interesting, Screen Rant reported.
Jughead to man up on Riverdale Season 2
With Jughead embracing the fact that he truly belongs to Southside, the troubled teenager may need to mature fast to manage the new challenges ahead. There are likely to be indecent proposals along the way with Juggy all alone.
Betty (Lili Reinhart) and Archie (KJ Apa) are still around but the walls that divide them now could be a major obstacle for them. Could Peabody be associated with Hiram Lodge (Mark Consuelos) as well?
At some point, the insertion of Peabody may turn out to be something more. Peabody could be linked to Hiram or maybe even the drug-related issues tied up to the Blossoms. A lot of revelations are likely to happen – most coming out even after FP is set free from jail.
The favors are pretty curious at this point, potentially a new twist. Aside from the Lodges and the Blossoms, there could be a connection to the shooting of Fred Andrews (Luke Perry) as well. Riverdale Season 2 returns on CW on October 11, 2017.
