Did he kill Jason?!

Cole Sprouse doesn't think you should trust Jughead on 'Riverdale'

Okay, so, Jughead Jones may be our favourite character on 'Riverdale', but after this weeks episode SPOILER ALERT when Jughead was questioned for the murder of Jason Blossom, we have thoughts.

Cole Sprouse spoke to Teen Vogue about why we shouldn't trust his character on the show. "I don't want to be a trustworthy voice. I think Jughead's character should also be a character that's investigated as a potential suspect.

"I think he has a stake in Jason Blossom's murder as well, and that certainly needs to be investigated. He's also the one speaking directly to the audience; he's the only one breaking fourth wall. That gives him an advantage over the other characters, which," Cole notes, "he exercises."

A narrator is somebody we instantly trust - but if we learnt anything in high school English, it's that the narrator can be the master manipulator.

Not only that, but so far Jughead has been portrayed as somebody to pity rather than fear. INTERESTING!

We never once suspected Jughead of being a suspect, but after he was questioned by the police (who gave some possibilities about why he would do it), we're starting to wonder if he could have been involved.

These kind of shows are always putting things out there to throw us off, like the end of the episode where we see Jason's football jersey hanging in Jughead's dads place. CLASSIC DIVERSION, RIGHT? Especially since his dad hasn't been shown in the greatest light.

"In a possible world, the audience can know him to be the perpetrator without anyone else [knowing]," Cole added in the interview, "which is something I think the audience should think about when they're juggling who could have potentially killed Jason."

As for Jason, the INCREDIBLE Madelaine Petsch (who plays Cheryl Blossom) has revealed to Bello mag that we will definitely find out who Jason's killer is by the end of the season.
