Synopsis
It's Cockamamie Day, when students can get back all the items that were confiscated from them over the past year. One of the items Mr. Weatherbee finds is a letter addressed to him. Archie asks him not to open it, and tells the story behind it: he wrote it to Mr. Weatherbee when he thought he'd be leaving Riverdale, and when it turned out he wasn't moving, he tried desperately to get it back. When Mr. Weatherbee finally gets a chance to see the letter, it turns out it was Archie's confession that he thinks Mr. Weatherbee is a good man who wants the best for him.
