“The Naughty Clause” – It’s Christmas Eve in Riverdale and everyone’s getting last minute gift shopping in. All signs point to a very merry Christmas, that is, until the gang receive a tip from one of Santa’s helpers that Reggie made the naughty list. It’s off to the North Pole to exercise the Naughty Clause and hopefully save Christmas for their friend before it’s too late. Will they manage to get Reggie off the hook in time or is he doomed to go present-less this year? Hop aboard; this is one wild sleigh ride you’re not going to want to miss!
