On the day he was to begin construction on the SoDale project with Andrews Construction, Vic receives a big job offer from Clifford Blossom that he could not pass up. He hates having to pull his guys from Fred and Andrews Construction, but the job Clifford is offering them would guarantee work for two years starting right then and there. He apologizes to Fred for abandoning him, but he can't ask his guys to turn down that kind of offer.
After Cliff's death, it is unknown what he found as employment though he'd eventually came to work with Fred Andrews again, selling Christmas trees. He shows Cheryl Blossom the many Christmas trees they have for sale. Later that week, on Christmas Day, Vic's intimate moment with Penelope Blossom was interrupted by Cheryl.

Current Serpent King, Jughead Jones, made him a Serpent however and said that he could hang out with them. Their discussion is interrupted by fellow Serpent Joaquin, who reveals that Archie isn't a Serpent. However, they are still willing to offer Archie their protection as long as he agree to shiv one of the Ghoulies across the yard. Archie refuses to and leaves.
Later, Archie steps on the yard with a brand new pair of sneakers, gaining the attention of the other inmates, Slash included, who points out to Joaquin that Archie is coming. He's been thinking and most of them are going to be there for a long time, and he doesn't want to do that time living like an animal. Shivving each other in the yard might be what the guards and the warden and the rest of the world out there expects of them, but there's another way. If they weren't there, they'd be in high school, joining clubs and trying out for sports. All of them will play one game to remind everyone that they're not animals. Not Ghoulies versus Serpents. No gangs, Archie says. They'll mix it up for a clean, fair game. Mad Dog agrees with Archie. If they keep killing each other, the warden and guards are the only ones who win. As an added bonus, Archie offers up his sneaker to MVP.

Brandon "Baby Teeth" Morris was an inmate at Leopold and Loeb Juvenile Detention Center until he was released and later captured and killed by the Gargoyle Gang. While training in the yard with the other fighters, Baby Teeth meets Archie, Warden Norton's newest fighter. He then proceeds to introduce Archie to Thumper and Peter. Baby Teeth advises Archie to start using the punching bag before the Captain comes over. Rules of the fight are bare knuckles until knockout. Warden sells the tickets. Guards place the bets. Everyone wins except the prisoners. They get a few perks if they win though. When Archie asks about Mad Dog, Captain Golightly tells him to stop talking. Baby Teeth also advises him not to ask questions.
After Archie wins his first fight, he requests lunch from Pop’s, but not just for himself. He gets enough to share with all the fighters. Baby Teeth compliments Archie’s fighting ability but questions what the Warden has to say about Archie ending the fight so quick. However, Archie has not the slightest clue as to what he is referring to.
Baby Teeth, Mad Dog, Thumper, and the others are released from Leopold and Loeb Juvenile Detention Center thanks to Archie, who blackmailed the Governor. Now that they’re out, Mad Dog plans on finding his family. However, some of the other guys have no place to go, like Baby Teeth, who has no one. Fortunately, Archie has the gym and is more than willing to allow them to stay in it. He then introduces them to Tom Keller, his trainer. Archie hands Mad Dog a pair of gloves and offers him a rematch.
The following day, Baby Teeth and Archie are joined at the diner by Mad Dog, who finally found his grandma and little brother, but they moved into an apartment building that’s falling apart. It’s been taken over by the Gargoyle Gang as well. They’re cooking drugs out of some of the vacant apartments. Archie assures Mad Dog that they’ll get the Gargoyles out.
Baby Teeth, Archie, Jughead, Sweet Pea, Fangs, Mad Dog, and the Serpents rally in the gym as they prepare to infiltrate the Gargoyle Gang's apartment building. Thanks to Mad Dog’s recon, they have a pretty decent idea of the layout. Sweet Pea and Archie take out the first two guards at the door. Then the group proceed into the building with Baby Teeth waiting outside as lookout. Armed with weapons such as crowbars and baseball bats, they make their way further into the apartments. The Serpents take 2nd floor while Archie and his guys take the 1st floor. Jughead’s off on his own on another floor. While the gang manages to subdue the Gargoyles, Jughead captures Kurtz, the cook. However, during the assault, Kurtz escapes and Baby Teeth goes missing. His body is later discovered by FP in clearing. Baby Teeth is the latest sacrifice. With runic symbols carved into his back, all his teeth pulled from his mouth, and blue fresh-aid around his lips, Baby Teeth’s body lays in front of a totem.
After Baby Teeth's body is recovered, it is taken to the morgue, where Dr. Curdle Jr. reveals to FP and Jughead that Baby Teeth died from loss of blood, from the pulling of his teeth, which occurred pre-mortem. During the autopsy, Curdle also discovered a matchbook from the Maple Club lodged down Baby Teeth’s throat.
Marcus Mason is Moose's father and the RROTC instructor at Riverdale High. Marcus arrives at Riverdale High after being recently appointed as the new RROTC instructor by Mr. Weatherbee, whom he has a conversation with as Moose and Kevin watch from across the hall. Along with becoming the instructor, Marcus is also making Moose join RROTC.
As RROTC commences, Major Mason recognizes Kevin as Tom's son, who he ran the RROTC with years ago. Major Mason welcomes Kevin, who proceeds to take a seat next to Moose.
Marcus and Moose enter Pop's to find Tom, Sierra, Kevin, and Josie together. Sierra and Tom take the opportunity to invite them to the wedding, though Marcus doesn’t appear to be too enthusiastic, almost brushing off the invite. As Marcus leaves, Tom explains to Josie and Kevin that he and Marcus used to be good friends, as they both were in the RROTC together. But, they grew apart. Sierra surmises that this was due to Marcus being jealous of her and Tom’s relationship as he had a crush on Sierra.
The following day, Major Mason and the other cadets find Moose and Kevin together. He informs them that the meeting with the Navel Academy recruitment officer is about to start.
After learning that Moose is gay and that he is in a relationship with Kevin, Marcus devises a plan to scare them. He, along with the other RROTC cadets, kidnap Moose and Kevin and take them into a clearing in Fox Forest. Marcus, disguised as the Gargoyle King, looks over them. Before them sits two chalices. The Gargoyle King wants them to flip for their fate. When Moose refuses to play along, the Gargoyles pull out knives as incentive. Should they refuse to play, they’ll be killed. With no other choice, Kevin decides to go first. He flips the coin and just as he prepares to sip from the chalice, the Gargoyle King is shot by an arrow, fired by Cheryl, who along with Toni, Tom, FP and his deputies, bring an end to the ritual. They unmask the Gargoyles and much to Kevin and Moose’s surprise, they’re the RROTC cadets. They were being lead by Marcus.
FP takes Marcus to the Sheriff Station for interrogation. Marcus reveals that there wasn’t any poison in the chalices. He was just trying to scare Moose and Kevin straight. FP wonders how he talked his cadets into helping. Marcus explains that he made it a quest. The Gargoyle King told them their brothers needed help. The RROTC was the same way when Marcus and Tom were in school. Back then, he and Tom were best friends. One day, he tried to kiss Tom, who rejected him. When Marcus’ parents found out about his inclinations, they sent him to the Sisters to get help for his weakness of character. That’s where Marcus first met the Gargoyle King, and where he started playing Gryphons and Gargoyles, and later learned that Tom played too along with the Midnight Club. The Sisters cured Marcus of impure thoughts. He became strong as he has been all these years. But then he heard that Tom and Sierra were getting married just as Moose told him that he was seeing Kevin. FP realizes that Marcus wanted to destroy what he couldn’t have. The Sisters scared Marcus with the Gargoyle King, so he thought he could do the same to Moose and Kevin. FP almost seems to feel bad for Marcus, commenting that the Sisters did a number on him.
