\n \n\n \n I know what you're thinking...she literally (MAJOR SPOILER ALERT) freaking died in the last episode of the fourth and final season of her show. Which, for me, is a plot choice I try in vain to erase from my memory because it, quite frankly, makes no damn sense and is, additionally, very rude and traumatic.\n \n

In fact, on CAOS, you've likely heard mention of Riverdale, including its famous diner, and seen character cameos, as well as some members of the SouthSide Serpents. Part 3 of the series also saw Sabrina and Ambrose (Chance Perdomo) visit the Blossoms' estate.

Thank you for all the love, #sabrinanetflix fans. Part Four is our best yet and Part Five, “Witch War,” would’ve been AMAZING. To be continued in the pages of #CAOS comic book... 💔🔮☠️🍔👨🏻‍💻

\n \n\n \n So, back to the fact that Sabrina is literally deceased. As we know, Riverdale is the most ridiculous and bewildering show out there currently (and perhaps ever), so stranger things (this was not an intentional pun) have happened. Still, fans have no idea how to make sense of this.\n \n
