11. A boxing match sends Hiram to jail

From the minute Mark Consuelos showed up as recently released criminal Hiram Lodge in the second season, a clock clicked somewhere in the distance, counting down Hiram’s last moments of freedom. But no matter how much horror he caused in Riverdale, he seemed invincible, like a cockroach surviving the apocalypse. He controlled the crazy happening in the town, therefore he controlled his unnerving, aggravating impenetrability.

However, after getting a little too cocky and showing his hand to the wrong people in season 3, Hiram found himself on the wrong side of a jail cell. One minute he was hunting Archie, the next he was distributing harmful drugs and enabling Gryphons & Gargoyles to take far too many lives. But he couldn’t be taken down for that, not when he controls the town’s sheriff department.

Thankfully, a convoluted road to retribution leads Veronica to pin her father for the illegal activities going down at La Bonne Nuit, the establishment he legally owns.

To do so, Archie and Hiram battle it out in the ring. Isn’t that always the way? Archie taking one for the team? Just when Hiram believes he’s beaten Archie to a pulp and won the match, FP bursts in a hauls him off in handcuffs. Veronica celebrates that he’s finally been held accountable for his actions and his assets will be auctioned off.

Still, Hiram plots from inside his own prison and puppet-masters Hermione’s arrest. All together now: Only on Riverdale!
