There was a bug in the system so I didn’t get the DNRs which means I couldn’t preview the episode because what if I accidentally stepped on the toes of an undisclosed one? Biggest yikes. So, because that couldn’t happen, and I don’t have the time to sit here and do a whole ass rating (and if you’re familiar with my coverage of The 100 then you know my reviews are usually extensive), here are thoughts i had while watching the latest episode of Riverdale.
Impressive. You really just spoiled the whole thing in the “previous”, right?
You can still put the Barchie kiss in there. It’s pretty.
“Not a big drama.” Shame as this is a teen drama.
That’s not how you pronounce chamomile, Mary!
Brett doesn’t make it until morning, I’d bet my life on it.
Archie at Fred’s grave. Let me sob
I knew he didn’t make it until morning
I like the way she says purple. Maybe it’s just the delivery?
How do I keep forgetting that Archie might not even graduate?
Ah shit. Will he break off?
Hahahahahahaha, wrong dating!
……or not? Bye archie?
Cheryl cuts a fine figure, but she’s UPSET.
Fight, Fight, Fight!
“Stepping on my daughter with her best friend, what kind of man does that do?” Tell the whole town why not
I do NOT trust Hermosa. But I also love whatever that is.
“Which is a problem.” It’s been a problem since season one, V.
“Betty’s instinct is good.” But is it you?
This zoom call from the Blossom family gives me a pandemic mood and I actually laugh.
I love Hermione. She is so excited about Hiram that it is funny.
That way I have no interest in this secret for myself.
If Camilia Mendes made a dollar for every time she said “Daddy” on that show, she would be a very wealthy woman.
Jughead goes to college in Iowa. That should be good.
Cheryl’s mother is helpful once? We love to see
Betty, just stop answering the phone in the middle of the night.
“Donna may not have lied.” I don’t understand why you thought she was at all?
KJ kills this scene. Imma is crying.
Another tape. I am officially ready to finish this story.
Hmmmm. I am proud of you Veronica. I was sure you would give in.
I said it once and I’ll say it again: I don’t trust her.
“The entire Blossom family has sailed into the underworld, Cheryl.” HAHAHAHAHAHA
This is one hell of a dark move, Mama Blossom.
Cheryl’s mother says, “Happy graduation! Have some murdered family members.”
Finally they put it together. What the fandom did months ago.
We all named it and that is honestly a disappointment.
Well, duh, Betty. He’s got the serial killer gene.
“What kind of teacher would I be if I just gave you the answer, little brother?” Ick. I am rudely reminded that Betty and Jughead share a sibling. I forget most of the time, I won’t even lie.
Waiting. If both Charles and Betty have the serial killer gene, does that mean it came from Alice?
She never wanted to go back with you anyway!
This is kind of a summary of all parents who walk in a nice little arc. I don’t know if I like that.
Mary why would you see this
I hope you know that television comes out of your permission, Archie.
Don’t hit your uncle, Archie!
“Let go of your anger, my son.” God, it was so reminiscent of Fred that my soul aches.
And also fandom called Jellybean. DIsappointment, your name is Heather.
“I thought we should do this over a drink.” Veronica will lose this license one day.
I know we all called it that, but also the argument, “She just doesn’t want me to go to college.” is actually pretty weak.
“She told me that.” But do you see? I just won’t buy it?
This letter pays beautiful homage to the character of Fred Andrews and it hurts my chest when Luke Perry goes missing.
That was a beautiful take on KJ who wouldn’t even lie. Not from an “Oh, he’s handsome.” from the point of view, but from the point of view: “For this one moment he is finally looking at peace and it is good to see it.”
Well, that’s all the thoughts from that episode as they happened. Hopefully the bug will be fixed and I can go back to the preview next week! Also, let’s hope that all of the personal drama comes next week after the ~ secret ~ is out of the way. I need it like I need crack.
