Riverdale’s Mob boss and Veronica (Camila Mendes)’s dad Hiram Lodge (played by Mark Consuelos) is always up to no good. Whether he’s getting a prison to produce his drugs for the town’s teens or chasing down his daughter’s beloved sweetheart Archie Andrews (KJ Apa), when there’s something dodgy going on in Riverdale, most people would bet money on him being involved. So to keep his empire growing and to ensure he stays out of prison, Hiram needs a good attorney – who comes in the shape of Mr Sowerberry.
Who is Mr Sowerberry in Riverdale?
Paul Sowerberry is played by Lane Edwards in Riverdale season 4.
Lane has previously appeared in Smallville, Falling Skies, Supernatural, Heartbeat, The Good Doctor and Redemption.
Mr Sowerberry is the attorney of Hiram Lodge, who ironically ended up incarcerated in his own prison in season 3.
Veronica, with the help of boyfriend Archie, came up with a plan to take down her dad and managed to get him arrested by Sheriff FP Jones (Skeet Ulrich).
Despite being thrown in the Lodge Detention Centre for his misdeeds, Hiram was already scheming and planning his revenge against his enemies.
Hiram is going to be taking aim at his family including his now estranged wife Hermione Lodge (Marisol Nichols) after she went against his plans to privatise Riverdale and essentially run the town himself.
Season three was definitely a turning point in the marriage between Hiram and Hermione, with the latter only sticking with the mafia kingpin out of fear.
Both of them were also having affairs – Hermoine was seeing Minetta while Hiram was keeping his mistress Ms Mulwray (Kelly Ripa) at the Five Seasons.
Consuelos and Ripa are actually married in real life, helping to make their on-screen romance even more realistic.
At the end of season three, Hiram was told by one of the guards of Hermoine’s arrest after evidence had been planted to take her down.
He also hinted he would be seeking revenge on his daughter since she helped to put him in prison.
Even though Hiram is imprisoned, he can pull strings from behind the scenes so could he have something to do with the mystery surrounding Jughead following the season four trailer?
Hiram is expected to cause trouble throughout series from behind bars so his trusted attorney is bound to be at hand to help him out.
Riverdale season 4 continues on Netflix UK every Thursday.
