Chapter 46: “The Red Dahlia”
“Forget it Jughead. It’s Riverdale.”
CW: Discussions of murder, serial killers, violence, sex work, domination, alcoholism
It wasn’t until watching this episode again that we realized it’s WAAAAAY more style than substance. Jughead is adorable playing a hard-boiled detective but could someone have taken another pass on his dialogue, for crying out loud? Archie’s become a full-on drunk and can’t stop himself from making bad decisions. And it seems like every parent is a suspect in the murder plot of Hiram Lodge. It may be messy, but this is definitely Riverdale.
