Midge Klump is a recurring character on the second season of Riverdale. She is portrayed by Emilija Baranac.

She is a student at Riverdale High School and the girlfriend of Moose Mason.

Her fate, along with Moose's, was left unknown after the Black Hood fired several rounds into their car before taking off into the night. It was later revealed she survived due to Moose shielding her from the Black Hood, causing Moose to be hit by several bullets, and admitted into the hospital, where he later made a full recovery.

Throughout Riverdale

Season 1

While discussing his relationship with Moose, Kevin Keller mentioned to Veronica Lodge that Midge was Moose's official girlfriend.[1]

In the playbook that members of the football team recorded their 'conquests' in, Midge's name was seen next to Moose's, her worth being a total of six points.[2]

Season 2

After hearing that Archie's father, Fred Andrews, was shot at Pop's Chock'lit Shoppe by a black hooded assailant, Midge joined her boyfriend, Moose, and the rest of the Riverdale Bulldogs at Riverdale General Hospital in support of Archie and his family.[3]

Deadly Days at Lovers' Lane


Midge looking to Reggie for Jingle Jangle

Midge approached Reggie by his locker looking to score some "Jingle Jangle", a new drug that has found its way onto the north side of Riverdale. After instructing Midge to keep her voice down on school property because the simple mentioning of the drug can land them both in a lot of trouble, Reggie asked who was Jingle Jangle for, to which she replied that it was for her and Moose. Reggie told her that he'll see what he can do.

The following night, Midge and Moose attended Retro Night at Pop's Chock'lit Shoppe, where Reggie delivered the Jingle Jangle in the diner's parking lot as planned. Unbeknownst to them, they were being photographed by Alice Cooper. Midge and Moose later drove out for a secluded tryst in the woods that night, where after taking the Jingle Jangle, they began kissing. However, they were attacked by a black hooded assailant, who shot at repeatedly, and left them for dead.[4]

Having been spared of any injuries due to Moose's heroic actions in using his own body to shield her from the gun fire, Midge, who was covered in his blood, got out of the car immediately following the shooting and screamed for help. Fortunately, she and Moose were discovered by Kevin soon thereafter.


Midge telling Archie and Reggie about the Black Hood

The next day, as Moose received a visit from Archie and Reggie at Riverdale General Hospital, she told them that the shooter's eyes were blank, as if there wasn't even a person behind them, comparable to Michael Myers or the devil.[5]

In the days leading up to Christmas, Midge and Moose entered the student lounge at school to find Archie, Betty, Cheryl, Kevin, Veronica, Jughead and Josie opening presents as part of a Secret Santa gift exchange. Midge and Moose were welcomed back by hugs from Josie, Reggie, and Kevin.[6]

As she learned that Southside High was being closed down and that some of their students would be transferring to Riverdale High, Midge approached Cheryl, who was devastated to learn of the incoming transfers.[7]


Midge and Moose at Pop's with Kevin

Midge and Moose entered Pop's Chock'lit Shoppe to find Kevin eating alone. So she invited him to join her and Moose in their booth. She asked if he was meeting anyone at the Bijou, but unfortunately, he wasn't. Which Midge thought was unacceptable. She offered to help him find a date, suggesting one of the new Southside Serpents that had recently transferred to Riverdale High following the shut down of Southside High. She had heard that at least one of them was gay, Fangs Fogarty. However, Kevin noted that he didn't think he could date someone named "Fangs". Moose interjected that Kevin should at least give Fangs a chance given that he was attractive though Midge disregarded his comment. She then asked how Kevin and Moose became friends. Kevin told her that they were lab partners in Biology.[8]
