Happy Thursday TV fans! After watching The CW’s Riverdale season 4 episode 11, if you didn’t already have Quiz Show fever, I’m sure you do by now.
Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.
In last night’s episode, “Chapter Sixty-Eight: Quiz Show,” Betty prepares for the Quiz Show match against Bret and Stonewall Prep with Veronica, Cheryl, and Toni by her side. Meanwhile, Cheryl and Veronica team up to win the rum war, Jughead’s book material puts a dent in his relationship with Betty, and Kevin explores a new potential business opportunity.
My top 5 moments from Riverdale season 4 episode 11 are:
“I just want to make him sweat.”
Charles is back in this episode, as both Betty and Jughead turn to him for help. Jughead is looking for some serial killer information that might help his next book premise and Betty wants to dig up some dirt on the competition, Bret.
After Betty discovers that Bret cheated on his PSATs, Bret turns the tables and reveals some of Jughead’s secrets, but will this put a permanent dent in Bughead’s relationship?
Let’s hope not…
“My dad believed in second chances and so do I.”
Archie is showing some of his naivete; however, as he decides to put Uncle Frank in charge of his father’s business. Morale is low and Archie decides to pass up on a job that would link them to Hiram Lodge, determined to keep integrity as a part of the business.
Mr. Keller clearly has some thoughts about Uncle Frank and tries to get Archie to see reason, especially when Uncle Frank helps himself to some petty cash.
Mr. Keller walks away and Archie explains that this cannot happen again, but Uncle Frank tries to tell him he was only trying to win enough money for the crew’s bonuses.
We know that there is a void in Archie’s life, but I’m not sure that Uncle Frank is the father figure he is searching for…
After Bret tells Betty that Jughead is writing the next book based on The Black Hood, Betty is more than upset. Jughead tries to tell her that he was just throwing ideas around and had no intention of actually writing it without talking to her first, but the lies keep piling up around these two.
Charles finds out that Betty did not get into Yale because they didn’t want to be linked to the daughter of The Black Hood and Betty loses it. She heads out to the cemetery and decides to destroy her father’s headstone, frustrated that he has ruined everything for her.
“Our rum war is back on.”
Veronica and Cheryl make a dynamic duo for sure, as they team up to “rum block” Hiram for good. Hiram claims he is the grand master and is ready for any challenge thrown his way, however. After Veronica and Cheryl turn La Bonne Nuit into a dance club with free samples of their new maple rum, Hiram arranges for them to be raided, proving to be quite the opponent.
But, no one should mess with Veronica Luna and Cheryl Blossom!
Veronica and Cheryl come up with a plan to use their new dance club as a distraction while they set up shop at Penelope’s Maple Club, promoting exclusivity to some wealthy clients. Penelope is let out of the bunker on good behavior, as Cheryl forces her to put on a mask and manage the shop while they are at school.
Well played, Cheryl!
“Victory…tainted by a cloud of scandal.”
Rivw’s Quiz Show was quite competitive, but I would expect nothing less from our fabulous four Vixens, who really showed Stonewall Prep what they are made of. Only Alice tries to interfere and manages to sneak Betty a copy of the questions and the answers from the show, trying to make up for what happened to her to even the score.
Our girl Becky is no cheater; however, and wins the game fair and square. We even got a fun Mean Girls reference, “The limit does not exist,” which I thoroughly appreciated!
Even though Betty did not cheat, we assume that Bret found the questions in her trash and turned her in. The victory is gone and Betty is suspended.
Seriously, can we get a win for our girl B?
Jughead is beyond furious and challenges Bret to a duel and we then flash forward ahead again to find Betty sitting with Archie. The two are trying to cope with Jughead’s death and we get an interesting focus on them holding hands that might suggest there is something more here?
We’ll have to see how this plays out…
