Warning: Spoilers ahead for season two, episode 22 of The CW’s “Riverdale,” titled “Brave New World.”
“Riverdale’s” second season has come to an end.
During Wednesday’s finale of the hit CW show, viewers were relieved to find both Jughead and Fangs survived, Kevin and Moose finally kissed, and Bughead’s romantic future moved forward. But not everything was happy in “the town with pep”: Fred lost the election to Hermione, Hiram formed a criminal ring, and Archie was arrested for a murder he didn’t commit.
INSIDER worked with Archie Comics to reveal six details you might have missed.
Veronica refers to her mom as Eva Perón, which is what Cheryl called Veronica earlier this season.
“My mom is doing an Eva Perón-like Rainbow Tour,” Veronica says of her mom’s mayoral campaign.
Perón was married to Argentine President Juan Perón and served as the Argentine First Lady until her death. Her European tour in 1947 was referred to the “Rainbow Tour.” The political leader was also the subject of the musical “Evita.”
On episode 10 of season two, Cheryl calls Veronica Eva Perón.
Alice makes a reference to Dante’s “Inferno” as she stands in front of the Cooper House.
“Abandon all hope, ye who enter here,” Alice shouts from her steps at all of the people gathered at the Cooper house following Hal’s arrest as the Black Hood.
In “Inferno,” the first part of Dante’s epic poem titled “Divine Comedy,” Dante passes through the gates of Hell, which feature the inscription, “Lasciate ogne speranza, voi ch’intrate.” It’s most often translated into the phrase Alice yells.
Jughead’s makes a reference to TS Eliot’s poem, “The Hollow Men.”
“So this is how it ends, huh? Not with a whimper but with a memo from Weatherbee?” Jughead asks when talking to Sweet Pea and Toni about the Serpent students being transferred to a different school.
In Eliot’s poem, the world is described as ending “not with a bang but a whimper.”
