WOW. Just, like, wow. There’s no words to define exactly what happened this week on Riverdale, because it was a rollercoaster of preposterous trash and sheer joy peppered with some really compelling and interesting moments of TV. Jughead wins the episode, Archie and Munro go FULL bro, Veronica’s processing some #DaddyIssues, and Betty’s in a bizarro Die Hard-meets-Scooby-Doo plot that even she can’t get a grip on. We’re still not exactly sure if we should be proud or mortified of this episode, and honestly, it’s probably both. Strap yourselves in for a wild ride this week in The Doghouse.
