After months of tiding ourselves over with set photos and nuggets of info from trailers, it's a relief to finally have the season two premiere of Riverdale in sight. The first photographs from the episode—ominously titled "A Kiss Before Dying"—have just been released, and by the looks of things, it's going to be an emotional season premiere. Check out the images below, and mark your calendars for the start of season two October 11.

And so is flawless queen Cheryl Blossom, who seems to have recovered from that rough patch in the season finale.
