Riverdale Season 3 Episode 13 – TV Review

Riverdale Requiem for a Welterweight Betty crying

And it was so good, too.

They say thirteen is unlucky for some.

You made this bed yourself, bitch. You did this.

Riverdale Season 3 Episode 3 – TV Review

Riverdale As Above, So Below Alice Skeet ship

This one happens to be my personal favourite.

And amidst all the crazy cult theatrics and juvenile detention-based fight clubs in this episode, the thing I had the most difficulty believing was that Veronica’s speakeasy doesn’t serve alcohol.

Reel it in, Season 3. Reel it in.

Riverdale Judgement Night The Killing of a Sacred Deer Cheryl archer

But, like, yeah. It is.

At multiple points in my notes for this episode I wrote “This episode is too fucking much.”

Which for Riverdale is exactly the right amount.

Riverdale Season 2 Episode 6 – TV Review

Riverdale Death Proof Cheryl race start

“Get me a goddamn bus.”

Cheryl’s off the bench this episode, and not used as a plot prop for an attempted rape this time.

But then she goes and spoils it all by doing something stupid like acting like a rational human being.
