Going out of her mind with worry after weeks of no contact with Archie (KJ Apa), Veronica (Camila Mendes) concocts a hazardous plan to break her boyfriend out of the juvenile detention facility in the new episode “Chapter Forty: The Great Escape.” Meanwhile, Betty (Lili Reinhart) finds herself racing against the clock to save her own beau, Jughead (Cole Sprouse), after he takes their investigation into the world of Griffins & Gargoyles a little too far.

American Horror Story: Apocalypse
10 p.m. on FX
This season might just as easily have been titled “American Horror Story: Everything But the Kitchen Sink,” since it’s given us nuclear devastation, mass murder, the Antichrist, witches and callbacks for characters from earlier seasons “Murder House” and “Coven.” Oh, and Joan Collins as witchturned-movie-star Bubbles Mcgee. It all gets wrapped up (-ish) in tonight’s season finale, but as usual, the only thing we know about it in advance is that it’s called “Apocalypse Then.”
