Fans did predict the plot twist after the shocker of the tragic death of the actor Luke Perry in March after he suffered a stroke and was hospitalized. Perry’s last appearance on the show was in season 3 which was aired in April, the Finale ended with uncertainty and we didn’t know what to expect. The opening of the season 4 is set around the funeral and a final goodbye titled “In Memoriam”, the plot is set around July 4.
We have grown familiar with seeing so much violence and murders on the show, but Fred’s death was the most tragic to watch and comprehend. It was a hit-and-run accident that takes place off-screen. Fred dies a hero while helping a stranger change the tire of the car and is hit by a car as he pushes Doherty’s character away to get her out of the way to save her while taking the blow to himself. All this takes place while he is driving back home from Cherry Creek.
Archie is given the sad news over a phone call while he is at Pop’s with Veronica played by Camila Mendes, Jughead and Betty played by Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart respectively. On learning the fact that Fred’s body won’t be transported until after the holidays, Archie takes it upon himself to get his father’s body home.
While on his visit to Cherry Creek, Archie meets the women his dad saved and they pray together at the site of the accident. Soon after talking to the police officer he decides to pay a visit to the man who caused the accident, only to realize it was his teenage son who was behind the wheel and he was trying to save him by taking the blame on himself. He was just trying to protect his son, just like Fred would do anything to protect Archie.
Archie and Veronica are greeted with a warm welcome of a parade of supporters holding signs praising Fred over his heroic act of helping and saving a stranger. After the funeral, Archie, along with his friends celebrate the moment with fireworks one last time to commemorate Fred and his memories and the time when he put up a firework show for Archie when he was younger. In the end, be ready for waterworks if you haven’t already cried yet when this episode ends with a dedication to the actor Luke Perry.
