Luke Perry Returns To ‘Riverdale’ In Emotional Cameo 2 Years After His Death
February 4, 2021
Followers have been surprised to see Luke Perry make an look within the commencement episode of ‘Riverdale’ that aired on Feb. 3, only a few weeks away from the actor’s two-year demise anniversary.
The commencement episode of Riverdale took an emotional flip when Luke Perry‘s character, Fred Andrews, made a shock cameo on Feb. 3. Luke handed away in 2019, and so did his character on the present shortly afterwards; so, The CW present paid particular tribute by utilizing previous footage of Luke in a dream sequence scene at first of the episode.
Within the scene, Fred’s son Archie (performed by KJ APA) dreamt that his late father and mom Mary (performed by Molly Ringwald) have been taking photos on commencement day. As Fred held his cellphone to snap a photograph of Archie and his mates Veronica (performed by Camila Mendes), Jughead (performed by Cole Sprouse) and Betty (performed by Lili Reinhart), Fred mentioned these haunting phrases: “I can’t imagine we’re right here. Archie, you’re graduating. I didn’t assume I’d reside to see this present day.”
This dream scene was truly borrowed from the Season 2 premiere episode “A Kiss Earlier than Dying,” which aired in 2017. The dream performed out after Fred was shot by Black Hood; though Archie’s dad lived by that ordeal, the writers of Riverdale have been sadly compelled to make Fred die in a hit-and-run accident within the Season four premiere, which aired seven months after Luke’s demise. The Riverdale characters even held an emotional funeral for Fred within the particular tribute episode.
The dream scene wasn’t the one reference to Fred within the commencement episode that aired on Wednesday evening; Archie and Mary mourned the truth that Fred was lacking his son’s precise commencement day. Followers weren’t ready for Fred’s comeback on the present, although, and took to Twitter to share their bittersweet reactions.
“I didn’t assume I’d be emotional a couple of freaking commencement episode however then Luke Perry confirmed up on my display and now I’m crying,” one fan tweeted, whereas one other wrote, “#Riverdale gutted me. I’ll by no means be over shedding Luke Perry. Seeing Fred’s face onscreen as Arch missed & remembered his Dad? Hits a lot tougher now in methods I used to be ill-prepared for. I bawled for 10 min. It was ugly.”
OMG WHY DID THEY HAVE TO SHOW LUKE PERRY..IM BALLING. #Riverdale
In actual life, Fred’s actor Luke handed away after suffering a stroke at 52 years previous in March of 2019. His demise rocked Hollywood, particularly since Luke performed heartthrob Dylan McKay on the unique Beverly Hills, 90210 collection between 1990-2000. To this present day, it’s even “laborious” for Jennie Garth and Tori Spelling to rewatch their previous episodes of Beverly Hills, 90210 with Luke, which Luke’s former co-stars revealed in an EXCLUSIVE interview with HollywoodLife in Dec. 2020.
