But what do we know about the Gargoyle King since the beginning of season 3 deRiverdale ? First, we know that it already existed when the parents were still teenagers. But is it the same person ? Nothing is less certain… In an interview to US Weekly, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, the creator of the series, however, has revealed that the Gargoyle King is “probably” someone that one has already seen in the series. So many clues that have given ideas to the fans.
But who is the Gargoyle King ?
The theory that sees double : First theory that comes to us from Reddit : the Gargoyle King would be Ethel (Shannon Purser). But the teenager would not be really responsible for his acts. According to this theory, it would suffer from a split personality and could, sometimes, become satanic. Only problem ? If it is the big nasty today, which was when Alice, Fred and the others were teens ?

The return of Chic : And if the Gargoyle King was in fact… Chic ! Remember, the character who was pretending to be the son of Alice, was in fact not really. And according to one theory, he could well pull the strings and make her return in the guise of the big bad. We remind you that Mädchen Amick had teasé the return of Hart Denton, who performs the character, a tool that has not yet been confirmed.

Edgar Evernever : Even if it is not appeared yet in the series Edgar Evenever, the leader of the Farm where Alice and Polly have found support, is already suspected by Betty and by the fans. This “sect” was surely already at the time when the parents were teenagers, and some believe that his daughter Evelyn could have reintroduced the game in high school. To strengthen this theory, a user pointed out that, in episode 3, Alice evokes Edgar, explaining that he had a certain “level” for the meet. In episode 4, Jughead said a similar sentence referring to the Gargoyle King : “This is only a question of time until I level up and then I could meet him“. Coincidence ?
The theory of the risen one : On Reddit, a user has another idea enough… amazing. The latter think that, in reality, Clifford Blossom is still alive and would go to his brother Claudius. According to this theory, Clifford, and Hal (the father of Betty) would have been lovers, and the father of Cheryl would have used his influence in order for Hal to become the Black Hood. After the arrest, he would have decided to take things into their own hands to take revenge on the teenagers who discovered that he had killed Jason. Mind blown !

Hermione manipulative : And if the Gargoyle King was none other than Hermione ? On Reddit, a user has thought about the question and listed several points of interest such as, for example, the fact that it is she who has found the game when she was a teenager. This website also explains that, if Hermione has decided to ban the game, it was just to make it even more attractive among the younger public.
