Riverdale fans have got their heads around a lot of fairly far-fetched storylines, and a seven-year time jump that left us with quite a few questions. But somehow it seems as though the show could have finally pushed viewers just one step too far with the latest storyline involving a possible alien abduction.

The last episode before the two-week break warned of a mysterious Mothman lurking in the town, but viewers had no idea how far this storyline might go until the series picked up with the most recent episode Fire in the Sky, which saw Jughead and Tabitha sitting down with Nana Rose to interview her about a time fifty years ago when she witnessed a bright light in the sky.

Nana Rose explains that not only does she think the light came from a Mothman ship, but a few weeks after it happened she discovered the body of a Mothman and decided to keep it, preserving it in a tub of Maple syrup. Tabitha is sceptical, but Jughead - now completely obsessed with the Mothman mystery - goes off to find the maple syrup barrel which contains the "alien" head of a Mothman corpse.

Later Jughead experiences the light phenomenon that Nana Rose spoke about fifty years ago and afterwards, when they go to check on the alien's body they find it's disappeared.

I totally get the confusion, but let's be honest with ourselves and admit it's hardly going to stop us from watching... Did we mention series 6 is confirmed?
