The non-Betty subplots of this episode are so appallingly bad that I won’t even vaguely reference them this time.
It’s unfathomable to me how anyone who was involved in the production of the stellar first season of Riverdale could look at what it’s become and say they’re proud of it.
All hope is lost. The second Betty’s storyline hits a bump the road, I’m abandoning ship, y’all.
I had the same itch with Nancy Drew that I had with Riverdale this week, and very nearly tossed it in the Discontinued bin where it belongs.
But like Riverdale, I’m going to give Miss Drew one more shot.
Because ghost possession in this universe is wacky and apparently easily-accepted by the characters, which was a pleasant surprise to me.
I gotta tell ya, it was a close call this week as to whether I would finally throw in the Riverdale towel. With all the non-Betty subplots this episode sinking to shocking new lows, it was so tempting.
But let’s give it one more shot, eh? For Season 1’s sake.
