I was THISCLOSE to an Archie and Jug scene. Ugggh, this show. Bright side: The promo suggests that Jug’s story will now involve Archie and Ronnie, so I have that to look forward to? I can’t lie, I’m so happy we are done with the first “half” of the season. All the stories have been way too separated and again, it’s CRIMINAL we haven’t had a single Archie and Betty scene either.
Archie is damn near suicidal. 😫 Of course Riverdale won’t go there, but they’ve pretty much said it in a roundabout way. His convo with Mary was freaking devastating; how he doesn’t understand how ppl like Dodger live while Fred died. And then thinking he’s turned into a monster and he’s so far from his father now. I’m just....I legit couldn’t stand this vigilante story, but fuck, KJ did THAT. His acting made me care. Praise.
Oh, lawd, Betty and that damn cat. And then “killing” Dark Betty by hypnotizing herself. And now we are to believe she “killed” Jug? I guess she could have been hypnotized again? But I still think they’ve planned his death to try to trap Bret in some way. Or maybe Jug has a twin? (I still haven’t let this go, lol). Either way, interesting that she used a rock to hit his skull in the same way Jug used a rock to smash a skull for the initiation.
Don’t care at all about Ronnie & Hiram or Cheryl and this years-long Jason shit, but at least the latter is over. Did Toni even have a line?
Oh, and Jug was finally wrong about something and got humbled? Love to see it.
