Who Is The Black Hood On "Riverdale"?
4. Hal Cooper
Hal looks VERY similar to the BH and is suspiciously never around when things happen but we have no idea about his possible motive. Ironically, he is someone who would know everything the Black Hood knows, especially all the facts about Betty, Polly and Alice (he also has access to the Riverdale Register archives.) But if Hal *is* the killer, then his affair with Penelope while he was still married to Alice surely broke his own moral “rules”? And why would he have shot Fred anyway?!
