Riverdale season 5: Jellybean NOT behind videotapes as fans ‘expose’ true villain

Riverdale: The CW release dramatic episode teaser

Jughead Jones’ (played by Cole Sprouse) sister Jellybean (Trinity Likins) confessed to shooting the horrific videotapes that have been plaguing Riverdale in last week’s revealing episode. However, fans are convinced someone else will be exposed to have been pulling the strings as the fifth season continues on The CW and Netflix.

Forsythia ‘Jellybean’ Jones is probably not the only culprit behind the latest criminal scheme to haunt the small town of Riverdale.

Fans have finally been able to tune in to the popular teen drama’s fifth season after the previous instalment was cut short by the coronavirus pandemic.

Now the series has finally returned to wrap up its latest dark plot before jumping ahead to Archie Andrews (KJ Apa) and the gang’s adult years, there are even more unpredictable twists coming our way each week.

In last week’s episode, The Preppy Murders, Jughead and Betty Cooper (Lili Reinhart) questioned his sister, Jellybean, forcing her to confess to her involvement in the brutal auteur killings.

She admitted to working with a group of friends to shoot the tapes in order to create a mystery for her brother, who was planning to leave his family and go to college.

Meanwhile, Jughead and Betty’s shared half-brother Charles Smith (Wyatt Nash) was caught out as being behind the recent murders of Bret (Sean Depner) and Joan (Doralynn Mui).

Although viewers are still unsure what the full scale of their plan is, it appears Jellybean and Charles could have been conspiring together to keep Jughead stuck in Riverdale.

However, fans have taken a look at the show’s trends throughout previous seasons, and are convinced there are more secrets to be spilled in the coming episodes.

One perceptive fan outlined their theory on Reddit when they realised not everything was as it seems with Jellybean’s confession.

User zinc_- posted: “I know Jellybean was revealed to be doing the tapes because she confessed. But when does it ever end in a tidy confession in Riverdale?”

The viewer then pointed to a number of instances where a mysterious villain’s identity was revealed, only for the true culprit to step forward later in the season.

For instance, notorious serial killer the Black Hood was unmasked as Riverdale High’s janitor Joseph Svenson (born Joseph Conway), before Archie discovered he had been framed by the true killer, Hal Cooper (Lochlyn Munro).

Right at the start of the series, it was believed Riverdale’s first casualty, Jason Blossom (Trevor Stines), was killed by FP Jones (Skeet Ulrich), before his own father, Clifford (Barclay Hope) was outed as the real murderer.

Plus, Riverdale’s newest episodes were originally intended to cap off the end of season four, which came to an abrupt end last year following the outbreak of COVID-19.

As the previous instalment was packed with twists and misdirects, including Jughead’s staged murder, it follows that the series could double back on Jellybean’s reveal as the auteur.

The fan elaborated: “In the episode, it was revealed that Jellybean’s motive was to keep Jughead from leaving for college by creating a new mystery.”

“Sure, that’s a solid motive. But it’s also an easy one to make; it’s almost an excuse that was quickly made up.”

There are still a few more episodes left to wrap up the mystery before Riverdale fast-forwards the narrative with an unprecedented seven-year time jump.

Hopefully Jughead’s final act before graduation won’t be putting his own sister behind bars and, if this theory is to be believed, the true auteur will be unmasked in the coming weeks.

Riverdale season 5 continues Wednesdays on The CW and the following Thursday on Netflix.
