Dr. Masters

Listen, he hasn't woken up yet. But talk to him, coax him back. Keep it positive. Honestly, that could make all the difference.
— Dr. Masters to Archie Andrews[src]

Dr. Steven Masters is a doctor at Riverdale General Hospital.

After Archie's father was shot, he was taken to Riverdale General Hospital, where Dr. Masters performed the surgery by removing the bullet from Fred's body and stopping the internal bleeding. As he informed Archie about his father's status after his surgery was complete.[1]

Young Serpent

Easy, Hot Dog. He's family.
— Young Serpent to Hot Dog[src]

"Young Serpent" is an as-yet unnamed teenage member of the Southside Serpents and a student at Southside High.

After Fred Andrews was shot at Pop's Chock'lit Shoppe by an unidentified assailant, Jughead asked the Serpents to investigate the possibility that it was retaliation for some of the Serpents being fired from Fred's construction site.

After learning that a Serpent had been bragging that Fred got what he deserved, the Young Serpent and Tall Boy violently interrogated him until confirming that it was just talking, then brought him to Jughead's trailer to let him know.[1]


André is Smithers' replacement as the Lodge Family's butler at the Pembrooke.

Hiram Lodge claimed that Smithers left to care for his sickly mother overseas, thus André came in as a replacement.[2]

André is Veronica Lodge's chauffeur to and from the retirement party of FP Jones, and from there on out. He is, by Hermione Lodge, skilled in martial arts, and will protect Veronica at all costs.[3]

André made several brief appearances throughout the episode. He initially crossed paths with Archie at the Pembrooke as he was delivering Hiram's dry cleaning and lunch from Pop's. A couple days later, he attended Hiram's poker game at Pop's. However, he did not play, only entering the diner to use the restroom. Afterward, he informed Archie that the toilet was clogged. Following Veronica's confirmation ceremony, André brought up one last present for her.[4]

At the boss's behest, André picked Archie up from his house and told him that they were going for a drive as the boss wanted to see him. In the car, Archie grew concerned as they passed the Pembrooke. André informed him that the boss had requested somewhere more private and scenic to meet. They pulled up alongside a cliff, where down below was a long and deadly drop to the ocean. André helped Archie out the car and took him to see Hermione, who thanked André for his services.[5]

Xander and Simone St. Clair

Xander and Simone St. Clair are old friends of the Lodge Family. They are married and have a son, Nick St. Clair.

Xander and Simone arrived in Riverdale with their son Nick, having been invited to the Lodges' SoDale Gala Opening. Hiram Lodge had invited them in hopes they would support them as investors. His daughter, Veronica Lodge, became their tour guide in showing them all the good things Riverdale has to offer.[6]

When Nick was taken down to the Sheriff's station for question, they accompanied him. Later after they had left Riverdale they had been involved in a car accident. The Lodges received a phone call letting them know that Nick was going to recover, with time, but there was no mention about Mr. and Mrs. St. Clair's statuses.[7]

Mr. and Mrs. St. Clair's status was later mentioned by the Lodges, that they had cut ties with them following the "accident".[8]

Farmer McGinty

Two boys on a country road, a crate full of God-knows-what. You're sinners, both of you. Careful, or you'll taste the Reaper's blade next.
— McGinty to Archie Andrews and Jughead Jones[src]

Farmer McGinty is a creepy old man that Jughead Jones and Archie Andrews ran into after their tire fell flat.

McGinty asked the boys whether they wanted a ride or not, with Jughead accepting his offer and loading a crate, containing drugs (as a favor to Penny Peabody), into the back of the man's truck en route to Greendale. Jughead asked Archie to stay behind, Archie complying. While driving, Farmer McGinty mentioned that Archie looked a lot like the deceased Jason Blossom, almost mistaking him for the dead boy.

The farmer told Jughead of the story of Riverdale's Reaper, a murderer that hunted Riverdale locals decades ago, brutally killing a family of four in a house by Fox Forest. He theorized that the Riverdale Reaper could very well be the current masked murderer in Riverdale, the Black Hood. He noted of how some said the Reaper left town, or in fact, stayed. After finishing his meal in a diner, he demanded that Jughead should pay for the dinner, Jughead alerting him that he gave him $18 for the gas and had no money left. Luckily, Archie arrived in time and paid the bill, also rescuing Jughead from the crazed man who was calling them sinners, claiming they'll "taste the Reaper's blade next."[9]


What can I get you, miss? We've got some nice spruces
— Vic to Cheryl[src]

Vic was an employee of Andrews Construction until he quit after finding more stable employment with Cliff Blossom. After Cliff's death, it is unknown what he found as employment though he'd eventually come to work with Fred Andrews again, selling Christmas trees. He showed Cheryl Blossom the many Christmas trees they had for sale. Later in the episode, Cheryl awoke on Christmas Day to find her mother, Penelope Blossom, engaging in an intimate moment with Vic, much to Cheryl's horror.[10]
