A similar sense of relief washed over me by the end of this episode, too.
After weeks of “huh” and “meh,” Riverdale finally makes the first move to pull itself out of the pits of second season mediocrity.
I could still use about 100% less land deal intrigue, though.
Much like the situation The Vampire Diaries and The Originals found themselves in, it seems like Riverdale and Dynasty, too, have ended up on the see-saw of television episode quality.
While Riverdale keeps on floundering, Dynasty’s here to make it clear that not all soap operas on the CW are in trouble.
And we’ve even got a Gossip Girl alum on the guest star list this time. Keep shining, Dynasty.
