    Summary

    Archie’s standing in the doorway, his phone held dead in one hand, his freckles dark against the new grey-white of his face, his eyes glistening with tears.

    “It’s - It’s Moose,” he says, before Fred can even ask. “He’s been shot.”

    At half-past midnight, Fred’s watching A Nightmare On Elm Street and shovelling popcorn into his mouth. Ten minutes later, he's with Archie in his still-bloodstained pickup truck, barreling to the hospital where they've brought Moose and Midge after a surprise attack at Miller's Point. By the time the sun comes up the next morning, he's sat at Moose's bedside all night, let two different people cry into his shirt, and promised himself, a little helplessly, that he'll never let this happen again.

    The town is bad, but his kids are so, so good.

    Summary

    He will remember it later as the last real happy memory of the two of them, himself and FP Jones, irrevocably tied in his memory to the sun-hazy boardwalk and the way the back of the van trapped heat like an oven. The sugar-sweetness of blueberries when they’d kissed.

    They start drifting, losing touch with one another. Then one day he wakes up to the closest thing to poetry FP will ever write:
    You’re too good for me and I can’t give you what you want
    I can’t touch anything without making it dirty.

    Summary

    A few weeks after Betty’s speech at the Jubilee, someone spray-paints FRED ANDREWS IS RIVERDALE in eight-foot tall letters on the side of city hall.

    or,

    Things go wrong and small towns are shitty and sometimes that's okay.
