Riverdale Season 3: 9 Theories On The Gargoyle King's True Identity

Will the REAL Gargoyle King please stand up?

The CW

Riverdale sure loves a good mystery.

The show's first season heavily revolved around the murder of Jason Blossom and the investigation that followed, forcing all of the town's residents (and the show's viewers) to wonder just who was responsible for the heinous crime. Similarly, Season 2 saw the town subjected to a horrendous murder spree that gripped viewers as Jughead, Betty, Archie and Veronica all attempted to figure out one thing - the identity of the Black Hood.

Season 3, however, has posed a different kind of mystery, and it all has to do with the mysterious Gargoyle King. While the question of identity is once again at the front of our minds, we're less inclined to wonder who the Gargoyle King is and more what he is.

That said, as much as it seems like the supernatural has come to Riverdale, the writers love to pull the rug out from under us with a major twist, and it usually involves a clue that was right under our noses the entire time. With two impostor Gargoyle Kings having already been unmasked, it's time for real answers.
