Riverdale theories: Jughead’s half-brother Charles is behind the VHS tapes – here’s why

Although Riverdale solved the cryptic puzzle behind the supposed murder of fan favourite Jughead Jones (played by Cole Sprouse) there are still some chilling schemes at play in the small town.

The latest episode served as season four’s premature finale as production of the final three episodes were stalled by the coronavirus lockdown.

Episode nineteen delivered the latest shocking cliffhanger for the series as the ongoing VHS plot raised the stakes by taping the brutal murder of Principal Honey (Kerr Smith).

As the ongoing mystery continues to plague Riverdale, fans have been speculating who could be behind the creepy plot to intimidate the innocent parents and students.

Latest episodes have still taken Jughead’s murder into account in a major way by emulating the blow to the head intended to kill the town’s most lovable Southside Serpent.

Because of this, theories have suggested the upcoming episodes could feature the return of Stonewall Prep students Donna (Sarah Desjardins) and Bret (Sean Depner).

However, a recent article in media news publication Bustle has proposed some alternative theories as to who could be the surprising culprit behind the latest mystery.

Season four of Riverdale has gone full Twin Peaks, not least with the introduction of its very own FBI agent, Jughead’s half-brother Charles (Wyatt Nash).

Despite this, Charles has popped in and out of Riverdale episodes ever since, and Bustle suggested he could have lent his FBI expertise to the new plot to take over the town.

The article continued: “Charles has years of surveillance experience as a member of the FBI, and it would be quite easy for him to film houses without being detected.”

Although Bret and Donna have demonstrated their talent for clandestine videotaping in the past, their film skills likely wouldn’t compare to a seasoned FBI professional.

They added: “He’s also aware of who the town power players are thanks to his close relationship with Betty and Jughead — so he would know where to send the tapes.

“Plus, he knows exactly what happened in the woods with Jughead and would be able to easily recreate it for that tape.”

Everything seems to line up, although it would be a major twist even by Riverdale standards if Jughead’s seemingly good-natured half-brother was revealed as the videotape stalker.

No release date for season five has been confirmed, but fans are hoping they won’t have to wait too long for Riverdale’s latest secrets to be unveiled.

Riverdale season 4 is streaming on Netflix now.
