Archie is on trial for murder, and it's all thanks to Veronica's father, Hiram. While it doesn't look to affect their relationship, Archie is going to struggle to have fun with all of hanging over him.
Cheryl: Greeting chums! I wanted to let you know that after the three *amazing* months I just had with Toni riding our motorcycles cross-country, we’re celebrating with an epic end-of-summer pool party at Thornhill. And you’re all invited! Of course, given the fact that Archie will most likely walking the green mile while the rest of us are walking the stage at graduation, I understand if you’re not up for it. Invite whoever you want, but give them fair warning: I’m in the mood for some hell-raising. Tootles!
Veronica: Are you happy now, Daddy? It all worked out, just like you planned. Archie didn’t play by your rules. He threatened you, so you punished him. You destroyed his life. Hiram: You think I did all this to hurt Archie, Miha? Because he threatened me? No, it’s because you betrayed me. [Hiram walks closer] Hiram: This is your punishment. You chose that boy over blood. My own daughter. Veronica: You don’t have a daughter anymore.
