season 2 started with a serial killer on the loose, but the true villain of the season has definitely been Hiram Lodge. Since he came to town, Hiram has slowly been gobbling up all the control and influence in Riverdale
. In the latest episode, "Primary Colors," however, the first major cracks began to form in Lodge Empire.
Jughead staged a successful protest, Fred Andrews resolved to run against Hermione for mayor and maybe most shockingly, Archie and Veronica began to regret being so tied to the King and Queen of Evil. The days appear to be numbered for Hiram Lodge.
