Next week on Riverdale season 5, episode 12, you’re going to see a pretty atypical installment by show standards. Rather than focusing on Archie, Betty, or one of the other main characters, it could be instead on Hiram Lodge, Veronica’s father. Why? Consider this episode all about why he became the person he is. Of course, we know that he’s one of the most notable adversaries in the show’s history, but there was clearly an evolution that got him to this point.
One of the things that we tend to see from many of these shows, in general, is evidence that their villains are not always bad. This may not turn them into sympathetic figures, but it could give them a greater sense of overall context. This is something that could be a focal point of this particular hour, which carries with it the title of “Citizen Lodge.”
Want to get a few more details right now? Then we suggest that you view the full Riverdale season 5 episode 12 synopsis below:
MICHAEL CONSUELO’S GUEST STARS AS YOUNG HIRAM LODGE – Hiram (Mark Consuelos) shares with Reggie (Charles Melton) his origin story and how he went from a young Jaime Luna (guest star Michael Consuelos) to the powerful kingpin of Riverdale.
