"Riverdale" wouldn't be "Riverdale" without a WTF twist. So of course the "Riverdale" Season 3 premiere will have some surprises.  It will also reportedly leave a main character in serious danger.

Hopefully not your favorite character. But...

Here's the scoop from TVLine, when asked about the Wednesday, October 10 return of "Riverdale":
Question: Got any Riverdale scoop? —Marie
Ausiello: Is this Pop’s Chock’lit Shoppe? Because I’m giving you exactly what you ordered. Next week’s jam-packed Season 3 premiere includes all of the following: (1) the conclusion of Archie’s murder trial — although maybe not the one you’re expecting, (2) an intriguing new romantic pairing among the high school kids, (3) at least three shots of Archie without a shirt on, and (4) a shocking scene that puts one main character’s life and health in serious jeopardy.

A shocking scene, eh? OK, we have been warned. Also, "an intriguing new romantic pairing"? Do you have the emotional bandwidth for a new 'ship?

Here's The CW's press release for the Season 3 premiere:
"Chapter Thirty-Six: Labor Day" - (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET)

AND THE VERDICT IS... - As the jury begins deliberations in his murder trial, Archie (KJ Apa) makes a surprising request about how he wants to spend his final days of summer. Betty (Lili Reinhart) is forced to deal with her problems head-on after a heated confrontation with Alice (Madchen Amick) and Polly (guest star Tiera Skovbye) brings up some dark secrets she's kept hidden. Veronica (Camila Mendes) pleads with Hiram (Mark Consuelos) to step in and help Archie before a verdict is announced. Finally, Jughead (Cole Sprouse) leads the Serpents against the Ghoulies latest attack.

Madelaine Petsch, Marisol Nichols, Luke Perry, Ashleigh Murray, Skeet Ulrich, Casey Cott, Charles Melton and Vanessa Morgan also star. Kevin Sullivan directed the episode written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.
