While in town visiting the site of the accident, he encounters the woman his father helped and learns she was almost hit by the car that killed Fred. Archie's father pushed her out of the way and ended up being struck himself, she tells him.

The past 48 hours in Trump impeachment inquiry news, explained

  The past 48 hours in Trump impeachment inquiry news, explained Trump blames Rick Perry, a second whistleblower, and an old-fashioned corruption scandal.First off, the initial whistleblower who helped bring this whole saga to public view is no longer alone. At least one more whistleblower, who reportedly was a firsthand witness to events related to Trump’s Ukraine dealings, has spoken to the intelligence community inspector general and retained legal representation — but we don’t yet know what he or she has to say.

Archie, himself no stranger to immature mistakes, is deeply impacted by the revelation, as he knows his late father would have done the same for him.

The gang makes it back to Riverdale and lays Fred to rest. At his funeral, Archie remembers his dad as someone who was there "for every high and every low."

"He was the greatest man I've ever known. It hurts me that I never got to say goodbye, that I won't ever get to see him again or talk to him. But his spirit and his memory live on in this town and in everyone he's met," he says. "Fred Andrews will always be a part of Riverdale."

With a befitting tribute, "Riverdale" has brought to a bittersweet conclusion Perry's legacy on television, where his absence will be felt whether you knew him best Fred Andrews or Dylan McKay. But like his final series, he'll always be part of it.
