9. FP Jones

If there’s a parent that shares the values of Fred Andrews in Riverdale, it’s FP Jones. Sure, Jughead’s dad hasn’t been a reliably good guy from the jump, but he evolved into a father you can trust in a town chock full of daddy issues.

But as we know, the bar is set at the floor for Riverdale dads. As the former leader of the Southside Serpents, FP had to kick his habits and get his act together in order to guide Jughead through the treacherous underbelly of the Southside.

Even though FP has turned over a new leaf, he’s taken part in quite a bit of illegal activity throughout the series. FP was revealed to have assisted Clifford Blossom with the aftermath of Jason’s murder due to a bad deal. He also helped the Coopers get rid of the Shady Man’s body when Chic killed him.

FP may have at one time been the guy to call when you needed to dispose of a dead body, but the tables have turned. With a badge and gun, he’s been appointed as sheriff.

Of course, we should never say never about FP possibly breaking bad again. He could have vengeance burning deep inside him just waiting to erupt, but considering Gladys has played him, it’s unlikely that Sheriff Jones has a hidden agenda.

Season 3 featured a scene that honored Skeet Ulrich‘s iconic role as Billy Loomis in Scream, hinting that he could be the Gargoyle King. Stranger things have happened on this show, but FP’s far too important to snap.
