Hiram Lodge is an upcoming main character and an antagonist set to appear in Season 2 of Riverdale. He is also the unseen, hidden secondary antagonist of Season 1.[2]

Hiram is the husband of Hermione, and the father of Veronica Lodge. He is a powerful businessman and the CEO/President of Lodge Industries. Prior to the start of the series, he was incarcerated at Yonkers Penitentiary and is currently awaiting trial for multiple counts of embezzlement and fraud. Despite his imprisonment, Hiram still runs his business and criminal empire from behind bars.

Character descriptionEdit

A ruthless, handsome, charismatic businessman who is coming back to Riverdale after weathering a financial scandal that almost destroyed him. He is there to reconnect with his wife Hermione and, especially, his daughter Veronica, who is the apple of his eye.[1]

Early LifeEdit

It is currently unknown if Hiram grew up in Riverdale, but he did at least spend some time there, long enough for him to form a rivalry with Cliff Blossom. He eventually went on to steal his current wife, Hermione Lodge away from Fred Andrews. The two of them moved to New York, and some time later got married and had a daughter, Veronica, and they all lived together in New York living a luxurious lifestyle. However, their fancy life and luxurious living didn't last forever as Hiram was arrested for fraud and embezzlement.

Before getting arrested, Hiram had an on-going arrangement with the Southside Serpents, a local gang in Riverdale. He hired the gang to decrease the value of the Twilight Drive-In, so that Lodge Industries could purchase the land for a low price.

Throughout the SeriesEdit

Season 1Edit

Hiram had a duffel bag filled with a large sum of money sent to The Pembrooke in order for Hermione to complete the payments to the Southside Serpents for a job well done in de-valuing the Twilight Drive-In.[3]

According to FP Jones, Hiram hired several guys from Montreal to come down and trash the work site for Andrews Construction after discovering that his wife, Hermione was having an affair with Fred Andrews.[4]

According to Hermione, Hiram was released from prison and was finally coming home. [5]

Season 2Edit


Although Hiram has yet to appear on screen, the series has managed to paint a fairly detailed picture of his overall personality. Hiram is a dishonest and underhanded businessman. He is quite ruthless, willing to step on and double cross anyone and everyone in order to achieve his own selfish goals. He has even gone as far as to threaten his own wife and daughter.
