There was TWO shootings on this week's episode of Riverdale, and one person was shot. But will they survive?

If you thought last week's Riverdale was stressful, this week's offering had us on the edge of our seats. In episode 20, titled "Shadow Of A Doubt", a lot of storylines started edging closer and closer to their conclusions. Betty is getting closer and closer to finding out the true identity of the Black Hood and Hiram's plan of total domination in Riverdale is becoming more of a reality as the seconds tick by.

But his thirst for power and control ended up starting a HUGE war between the Northside and the Serpents and it spelt trouble for one person in particular - and they may have even lost their life.

Right then. Yes, there were two shootings on this week's Riverdale. One took place at the town hall during the election debate and the other took place just after Fangs had been released from prison. Luckily, no one was harmed during the debate but there was one casualty on the street outside the Sheriff's department.

After battling his way through the crowd surrounded by his fellow serpents, Fangs was shot in the stomach by either Archie or Reggie, who had stalked him down while seeking justice for Midge, who Reggie believes was murdered by Fangs.

The episodes ends before we're able to find out Fangs' fate which left many fans on Twitter wondering if he had actually died from the gunshot wound. The general consensus? HE BETTER NOT HAVE!

Well, kids, we've got some good news. In the promo for the next episode, titled "The Killing Of A Sacred Deer", it's revealed that the Serpents manage to drag Fangs to the hospital. (You can see it around the 4 second mark.) Of course, we'll have to tune in next week to find out for sure if our boy Fangs survived and if Fred Andrews' miraculous recovery is anything to go by, Fangs will be fine.

But there's one other huge clue lurking on the internet that suggests Fogarty will live to fight another day with Sweet Pea and Toni Topaz by his side.

Drew Tanner, who plays Fangs on the show, is known for sharing some pretty cool behind the scenes photos from the set on Instagram and one of the last scenes to be shot on season two consisted of all the Serpents (and Cheryl) hanging out in a field in the middle of nowhere. Numerous cast members shared Instagram stories and snaps from the day, including these pictures posted on Tanner's Instagram a week later.

So, unless Fangs is now a ghost that still hangs around with the Serpents, we're pretty sure Fogarty will be back in business in no time.

Hiss hiss, bitch.
