The CW's Riverdale somtimes wears its influences on its sleeve, and the newly-revealed title to an upcoming episode continues that. Scheduled to air in early 2018, the 25th episode of the series is currently titled "The Wicked and The Divine" - taken, of course, from Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie's The Wicked + The Divine at Image Comics.

Previous episode titles have referenced other outside media ranging from movies to books, to other television shows.

What makes it more interesting is that NBC (through its Universal Television subsidiary) has been developing a live-action version of The Wicked + The Divine, which was announced back in 2015. NBC, of course, is a direct competitot to the Warner BRos./CBS co-owned CW network.
