Ranking the top 5 moments from “Riverdale” Season 4 Episode 14: “How to Get Away With Murder”

Happy Thursday TV fans! After watching The CW’s Riverdale season 4 episode 14, it finally happened, but “the thing about murder” is you “gotta have the stomach for it.”

Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet. 

In last night’s episode, “Chapter Seventy-One: How to Get Away With Murder,” Betty, Archie, and Veronica deal with the aftermath of that horrific night in the woods. Meanwhile, Betty works with Charles to bring Donna and Bret to justice, but have they been outmatched?

My top 5 moments from Riverdale season 4 episode 14 are:

5

“Toga party, strip poker, and skinny dipping…”

Perhaps Betty, Veronica, and Archie should have gotten their stories straight after walking in the door a little past 3am in only their underwear. It’s clear that everyone is traumatized by what has happened, but what they do next is extremely important.

Charles is already playing a vital role here, which begs the question, is this all some kind of an elaborate hoax to bring down Quill & Skull?

“There’s only so much pretending I can do.”

Meanwhile, Veronica is dealing with her own issues at home when her father wants the family to look over the changes to his will. Veronica doesn’t want any part of this and refuses to give up on her father, but he asks her to try and get along with Hermosa.

Veronica agrees, but it doesn’t look like Hermosa is going to play fair here. Can she really be trusted?

It doesn’t seem likely and I have a feeling that she is the one who leaked information to Veronica’s college about her Maple Club business after being burned by her and Choni.

“They’re smart. We just have to be smarter.

Betty is dealing with a lot, but luckily she has Charles and her friends to back her up. I’m not sure that she has even fully processed what has happened with Jughead, as she is now focusing all of her energy on bringing the real killers to justice.

After Betty and Charles’s plan to bug Stonewall Prep gets shut down, they realize that they should stop playing defense. Betty realizes that they need to come up with something that will completely shock their enemy, but is she taking things too far?

Is she using this mission to shield herself from the reality that Jughead is gone? I’m not sure, but I did enjoy seeing Archie punch Bret in the face…go Archie!

“We need to know the truth.

Even though Archie and Veronica are on Betty’s side, they begin to have some doubts as well, especially since Betty was holding a bloody rock and can’t remember what happened. This is the not the first time Betty has had some kind of a violent outburst or blackout so they want to make sure they know all the facts.

Charles hypnotizes Betty again so they can find out the trigger word, but we discover that Donna actually blew some kind of white powder in her face called the “Devil’s Breath,” which can result in short-term memory loss.

Charles thinks that it is doubtful that Betty could have killed Jughead in this kind of state, but we still don’t know what happened exactly. Little by little, we are inching closer to the truth, but I’m all for exonerating Betty.

“You’re gonna regret ever meeting me.

We also learn that it was Betty’s idea to have FP find Jughead’s body, hoping that this is the unpredictable move that will really throw Bret and Donna off their game. We get another flash of Betty and FP looking at Jughead’s body and it is Jughead’s face, but I’m still trying to piece together a theory that he is still alive somehow.

Why was Betty so insistent on FP being the one to find him? Is it because he is part of the inner circle of trust and could identity the body without being questioned? I still am wondering if that morgue guy is making it look like Jughead is dead, but honestly I don’t know at this point.

It just seems like everyone is handling Jughead’s death a little too well and even Archie says he has to tell his mother something, which makes me wonder if he is bringing her into the circle of trust now as well?

Either way, we still get this incredible moment where Betty meets Donna in the woods.

She stands up to her and reminds her that she is the “ultimate wild card” and that she is going to take Donna down with her. Donna should be scared at this point because no one messes with our girl Betty Cooper or her beloved Jughead Jones!

Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Riverdale” Season 4 Episode 11: “Quiz Show”

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:

5

“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…

“Not anymore…”

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.

Poor Betty…

“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…

Stay tuned!
