Jughead and Betty think that it may be a preparation for actual murders. Betty submits the yearbook to Principal Honey, but he refuses it as the printer deadline was two days ago. Betty says that she called for a printer extension, but Principal Honey says that the decision is final. Here is what happened in the previous season of this mysterious drama, and when does Riverdale Season 5 Episode 1 release?
What happened in the Season 4 finale?
Betty tells the gang that Honey refused for the yearbook. First, most of them are banned from prom, and now this happens. The only people who are allowed to go on the prom are Archie and Jughead. Betty says that the only way to stop Mr. Honey is to either kill him or scare him enough to leave town. She says that they can dress up and then knock him out and trap him in her family’s cabin somewhere in the forest. This is the one way they could get revenge on him. Reggie suggests that they could also play a senior prank on him.
Mr. Honey is then kidnapped by the students and then trapped in the cabin. Most of the students took turns to keep an eye on him, including Cheryl. Mr. Honey tells Cheryl that it’s not too late to change, but Cheryl responds that he is the common enemy amongst the students. The next day Mr. Honey announces that whoever is responsible for the prank does not come forward then the prom is officially canceled. Reggie refuses to come forward as he wasn’t the only one who did the prank. Betty then asks Reggie to search for any skeletons in Mr. Honey’s closet.
Later in Jughead’s narration, the gang digs a hole to hide Mr. Honey’s body. The next day they begin to talk about prom when it is revealed that there is a search party organized for Mr. Honey. Their carefully constructed plan is beginning to unravel all because of Reggie. Reggie claims that he didn’t run off, but Archie jumps him and tells him to shut up, and has him killed. This leaves the students to figure out what to do with the body. They decide that they could make it look like Reggie died in a car accident. Jughead calls themselves monsters who either deserve to go to college or jail.

In the real-world, Cheryl makes an announcement as a student body president that the prom is back on and that they will make it the best prom that they’ve ever had. Mr. Honey calls Betty and Jughead into the office and shows them a tape that seems like a threat. He says that he has no other choice but to cancel the prom. Later, a new tape surfaces, and it shows Mr. Honey in it. Betty tells him that this is circulated all over the circle and that his career is over.
Mr. Honey packs his things to leave the high school and reveals that all he ever wanted was to keep the school safe and sound, even if he seemed a bit harsh to his students. And he even wrote a letter of recommendation for Jughead as well. Jughead changes the end of the story. Betty asks why Jughead responds that he was taking pleasure in someone else’s pain and it was wrong. They later get another recreation tape, and it is of Betty, Archie, and Veronica killing Jughead.
