My Ship of the week ending 10/19/19 on TV goes to…

Betty Cooper and Jughead Jones on The CW’s Riverdale season 4.  There’s just something about Bughead that makes your heart skip a beat. 

While both Bughead and Varchie had some passionate and fiery moments in season 4 episode 2, Bughead takes the crown for me because they have a bond that transcends all of that, understanding what it truly means to give up everything to do what is best for your partner.  Please note some spoilers are ahead if you are not up-to-date on the series.

In a lot of ways, Betty and Jughead are ahead of their time.  There is a maturity and friendship to their relationship and they really make you think past the temporary moments of passion.  Sure, we love seeing these swoon-worthy parts, but I really enjoy witnessing Betty and Jughead’s selfless moments together even more. 

They won’t have an easy year ahead of them, but Betty understands Jughead’s talent and potential and she reminds him that they can get through anything together, which was really inspiring and heartwarming to hear.

Betty and Jughead aren’t perfect by any means.  In fact, I think that both of them have kept their fair share of secrets, but season 4 is really allowing them to flourish.  In a lot of ways, they have moved past their prior mistakes and now they are truly grateful for one another, understanding what really matters in the end…being together.

There doesn’t need to be some epic moment between them because of all of their small moments together make them stand out that much more.  They resemble a real and stable relationship and while I am worried about their future fate now that they will be separated, I have faith in these two no matter what.

Betty and Jughead are both strong characters individually and when they are together, they compliment each other so well and I love seeing them team up for mysteries.

My favorite moment of the episode was during English class when Betty pulled Jughead out in the hallway to tell him to go to Stonewall, reminding him that they are always together.  Betty wants what is best for Jughead and I know that he would do the same for her.

What’s next for Bughead?  We’ll have to wait and see, but I am anxious to find out more about Jughead’s disappearance in the future.  Betty is my go to girl to solve the case, so I know that she will not stop until she finds him, but I am starting to wonder more about what led them to this separate path.

Long distance relationships are never easy, but I know that Betty and Jughead will do everything in their power to stay together.  The King and Queen of the Serpents deserve every bit of happiness, but I have a feeling that someone might try and get in their way.  These two are stronger together, but I am not underestimating either of them and I can’t wait to see what happens next!

I’m always rooting for these two and I would love to see some more screen time for both of them, especially since we know that they will really need to work at putting in some quality time together.

What are YOUR thoughts on Bughead?  A dynamic duo or on the outs?

Stay tuned for a recognized Ship on TV each week!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Riverdale” Season 4 Episode 2: “All That Jazz”

Happy Thursday TV fans!  After watching the CW’s Riverdale season 4 episode 2, I realized that life certainly goes by fast, so we should stop to truly savor it.  Sometimes it may be time for a fresh start, but are we really able to leave our past in the rear view mirror?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet. 

In last night’s episode, “Chapter Fifty-Nine:  Fast Times at Riverdale High,” Jughead receives an offer that could change his life forever.  Meanwhile, a new principal is making waves, but Cheryl is not going to let anyone stand in her way.  My top 5 moments from the Riverdale season 4 episode 2 are:

5

“I stand only with and for myself.”

In this episode, Veronica has a lot of drama thrown her way, especially when the paparazzi want a statement regarding where she stands in terms of her mother and father.  Veronica does her best to avoid them, but when a story is leaked about her own actions, she decides to pay her father a visit.  Hiram reminds his daughter that she’s a “Lodge through and through,” but Veronica decides to make a statement with flair.

She puts on a show-stopping number of “All that Jazz” and explains that she is not supporting either one of her parents.  It looks like Veronica is ready to embrace her own fresh start, as she decides to legally change her name to Veronica Gomez, ready to strip away the Lodge family name.  Will she truly be able to leave her family drama behind though?

4

“Bros for life.”

Reggie gets some well deserved screen time during the episode, as we dive more into his relationship with his father.  After several mentions of this in season 3, everything is now out in the open about Reggie’s dad abusing him.  Archie refuses to stand by and say nothing, and he and Reggie bond when Reggie decides to finally stand up for himself, damaging his father’s precious car in the process.

It seems like everything is getting better for now and Archie and Reggie claim to be “bros for life,” but I have a feeling that Reggie’s dad will not go away quietly.  Either way, I thought this was an important moment for both of them, bonding over the concept of family, especially when Archie just lost his own father.

In a lot of ways, Archie reminded me of Fred here, always trying to do what is right to help someone in need.  Your dad would be proud of you, Archie!

3

“Your name may be Honey, but I will always be the Queen Bee!”

Cheryl is still keeping dead Jason a secret, but decides to focus her full attention on the Back To School Dance.  Only the new principal, Mr. Honey, has decided to cancel it.  Mr. Honey is played by the amazing Kerr Smith (Charmed, Dawson’s Creek, Final Destination) and I have to say that he is really making some waves at school.  Is he the new villain in town?  Will he and Chad Michael Murray have a showdown to see who is the ultimate 90’s teen icon?

We’ll have to wait and see what his plans are, but it’s clear that Cheryl is not going down without a fight.  After Mr. Honey calls the cops to break up her party, Cheryl decides to kick things up a notch, leaving an actual beehive on Mr. Honey’s desk.  Something tells me that this is only the beginning of a feud between these two, but Mr. Honey better watch his back!

2

“I believe in you.”

Betty and Charles continue to work together to find out where Edgar is so they can get Alice out of there safely.  Kevin tries to make amends with Betty and he seems sincere, but Charles thinks that Kevin may still be working with the Farm.  After Kevin confides in Betty about just wanting to stay connected to Fangs, Betty tells him about her mother being undercover at the farm.

Is this the right move though?  Betty is typically smarter than this and she has just risked exposing her mother, but she tries to tell Charles that Kevin is on their side.  Toward the end of the episode, Kevin learns that Edgar has a lot of weapons, but what is he planning on doing next?  Is he looking to go to war?  Let’s hope that Alice will be OK!

1

“It’s the chance of a lifetime.”

During the episode, we get some hot and steamy moments for both Varchie and Bughead, but Betty really proves just how supportive she can be when she encourages Jughead to go to Stonewall Prep.  We are introduced to another new character, Mr. Chipping, who sees a lot of potential in Jughead’s writing.

At first, Jughead just wants to finish out his senior year with his friends, but Betty reminds him that he should take this opportunity and promises that they can make it work no matter what. 

Betty is so incredibly supportive here and I have to say that this was an important moment for Bughead.  It seems like it is going to be the start of a good year, but we do flash-forward to spring break.  Everyone is looking through the woods for Jughead and so the mystery begins.  Stay tuned!

I hope you enjoyed the list and feel free to post your own thoughts and theories on Riverdale in the comments section below.  Thank you so much for reading and happy viewing!

Amy Koto, TV Fanatic Girl

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Riverdale” Season 4 Episode 1 Season Premiere: “We Will Never Forget You Fred”

Happy Wednesday TV fans!  After watching the CW’s Riverdale season 4 episode 1 season premiere, I am in tears.  In fact, I was in tears throughout the entire episode, but I remembered that no one is every truly gone if we continue to honor them in what we do next.  Please note MAJOR spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet. 

In tonight’s episode, “Chapter Fifty-Eight:  In Memoriam,” the gang gets ready for the 4th of July and everything seems to be really quiet in town…until Archie receives a phone call that will alter his life forever.  My top 5 moments from the Riverdale season 4 episode 1 season premiere are:

5

“I have to bring him home…”

In the beginning of the episode, Archie receives a phone call while he is at Pop’s and discovers that his father has been killed in a hit and run.  Archie is beyond devastated and shocked and so are his friends and mother.  Even his dog whimpers quietly by the door, which immediately broke my heart.  Archie decides that he wants to bring his father’s body home and his friends agree to help him along the way.

The sudden passing of Luke Perry toward the end of season 3 shook everyone, but the show did not truly get a chance to give him a proper goodbye before.  While I knew that something like this was coming, I was not prepared for this incredibly emotional and heartbreaking episode. 

Even though it was extremely difficult to watch and hit very close to home for me, it was something that Fred Andrews earned and something that Luke Perry deserved even more, reminding us just how many lives he has truly touched and how much he is missed every single day.

4

“I’m just paying my respects.”

It truly meant the world to me to see Shannen Doherty guest star on this particular episode to pay tribute to her good friend, Luke Perry.  I grew up watching her and Luke Perry on Beverly Hills, 90210 and both of them made a huge impact on my life.

Brenda gif

When I recently watched the BH90210 reboot, the tasteful tribute for Luke Perry was done perfectly and I thought it was so appropriate for us to see Luke Perry’s journey come full circle here.

Welcome to paradise 1

Doherty plays the woman that Fred saved on the road and while she doesn’t have a huge part, her presence was so powerful.  Seeing her standing next to Archie and the others truly allowed Luke’s memory to live on, seeing where he started and where he ended up, living on in every role he played.

3

“Whenever he looked at you, there was pride in his eyes.”

After discovering the identity of the man who killed his father, Archie decides to track him down to take justice into his own hands.  When Archie realizes that the man is innocent and is merely trying to protect his young son who made a mistake, Archie realizes how he could have been in this very same situation with his own father.

Archie feels ashamed and thinks he let his father down, but Veronica has a supporting and meaningful moment with him, telling him how proud his father truly was of him.  Sometimes Varchie can be over-dramatic, but I thought this was such a simple and perfect moment for them and I’m hoping Veronica can help him get through this because he is going to need her.

2

“We will never forget you Fred.”

After Cheryl initially feels some type of way about a parade on 4th of July, she has an immediate change of heart when she finds out what happened to Fred.  Cheryl and Toni go to see Mrs. Andrews and Cheryl explains that she knows what it feels like and she wants to do something for their family. 

When Archie brings his father home, the entire town is waiting and there are signs showing their love and admiration of Fred, which was incredibly heartwarming to see.  Even though this town has had its fair share of tragedy and misfortune, everyone comes together now to honor a man who always just tried to do his best and help others.

1

“Fred Andrews will always be a part of Riverdale…I’m going to honor him.”

I thought that Archie’s eulogy was beautiful and simple, but he talked about how his father helped build this town and it’s clear that Fred made an impact on everyone in it…even Hiram Lodge, who ends up doing the right thing by paying for all of the costs.

Archie says that his father was the greatest man he’s ever known and hopes that his spirit and memory will live on.  At the end of the episode, each character has a moment to self-reflect and mourn and we end with Archie going into the garage.  We actually see some past clips of Fred; right before the camera zooms out, leaving us with the photograph of Fred and Archie together.

Luke Perry 10 9

This was probably the most incredible episode I have watched of the series.  Yes, it took a break from the drama and the mystery we have come to know and love, but it truly dedicated itself to a character and an actor who was so inspiring.  I feel incredibly honored to have witnessed a true tribute that was so beautiful and well done.

Thank you, Riverdale for providing Fred and Luke with this tribute.

Fred Andrews will always be a part of Riverdale and Luke Perry will always be in our hearts.

My performance of the week ending 5/18/19 on TV goes to…

Madelaine Petsch as Cheryl Blossom on Riverdale. I have been waiting for Cheryl to snap out of this cult obsessed trance for a while now and it finally happened, revealing the Cheryl “Bombshell” that we all know and adore.  Please note some spoilers are ahead.  In the season 3 finale, Cheryl finally realizes that everything is now up to her.  She needs to save her friends from the Farm while also trying to help Betty before it is too late and she does not disappoint.  Cheryl provides us with humor, sassy attitude, and her trusty bow and arrow, reminding us that she never misses a target.  Watch out!

While I adore the relationship between Cheryl and Toni, I really wanted to see Cheryl break out of her shell and re-embrace her own identity.  She gets the chance to do that in the season 3 finale, as she reveals courage and strength, coming face-to-face with one of her greatest fears.  It’s amazing that Cheryl can be so incredibly traumatized, and rightfully so, but still push that aside to help her friends, which reminds us that she is extremely loyal. 

Cheryl is typically thought of as a supporting character outside of the core 4:  Jughead, Betty, Archie, and Veronica.  However, for me, she absolutely stole the show.  While there were plenty of intense moments for all of our characters, I was rooting for Cheryl the entire time, as she became the unlikely hero of the day for me.

What’s next for Cheryl?  It was unlikely that Cheryl would come out of everything completely unscathed, as we see her welcoming home her brother Jason at the end of the episode, keeping his corpse with her at home.  Cheryl has had to process so much and she just discovered that her mother is the true Gargoyle King, which is enough to drive anyone over the edge.  However, this combined with the drama she faced at the Farm, along with discovering her brother’s body, has clearly taken its toll.  I am sure that this will be explored more in season 4 and hopefully Toni or Nana Rose can snap her back to reality.  I personally can’t wait to see what she does next!

Stay tuned for a recognized performance on TV each week!

Best,

Amy Koto, TV Fanatic Girl

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Riverdale” season 3 episode 22: “Survive the Night”

Happy Thursday TV fans!  After watching the CW’s Riverdale season 3 episode 22 season finale, Jughead reminded us of a quote from Arthur Conan Doyle:  “Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains…however improbable, must be the truth.”  But what if the truth is even more frightening than the impossible?  Please note MAJOR spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “Chapter Fifty-Seven:  Survive the Night,” Jughead, Betty, Archie, and Veronica come face to face with the real Gargoyle King, as they are put through a series of dangerous quests that threaten each of their lives.  Meanwhile, Cheryl tries to get other members of the Farm to listen to reason and we learn a secret about Alice that could change everything.  My top 5 moments from the Riverdale season 3 episode 22 season finale are:

5

“The true king was you…”

In the beginning of the episode, we cut right to the chase, as Jughead, Betty, Archie, and Veronica end up at some kind of creepy Murder Mystery Dinner Theater.  We learn that Penelope “bought” Betty from Edgar after she learned about his harvesting organs scheme from Toni, but is Betty in even more danger now?  As everyone exchanges confused looks, we meet two more guests and Penelope reminds them that there are “no masks at the dinner table.”  Hal is the Black Hood and is very much alive and Chic is the Gargoyle King.  Chic now has red hair and has been pretending to be Jason under Penelope’s twisted orders, but this was a very satisfying reveal.  We learn that the true Gargoyle King is Penelope Blossom. 

I originally suspected that the King was a Queen, but I put my money on the wrong Riverdale mother, but I was very pleased with this reveal.  After all, the Red Dahlia can be extremely dangerous.  Penelope reveals that Jughead and the others are featured players because they are all children of the original Midnight Club members and she’s looking to put their parents through the same trauma that she went through with Jason.  We also learn that Sister Woodhouse was behind the deaths at the Sisters of Quiet Mercy, as all of the puzzle pieces begin to fit into place.  And so the final quest begins… 

4

“I don’t think I ever stopped loving you.”

Even though this episode is jam-packed with constant action and twists and turns, we do take a quick moment for Varchie to have a heart-to-heart talk.  Now that their lives are in great danger, Archie tells Veroncia how he really feels about her and she says, “My heart ached for you,” revealing that nothing happened that night between her and Reggie.  Varchie fans rejoice!  And now back to the action…

3

“What kind of sick monster are you?”

Meanwhile, Cheryl tries to convince Fangs and Kevin that they are in great danger, but the organs that Betty discovered have been conveniently moved.  Cheryl walks into a room and begins screaming, as she confronts Edgar and asks him, “What kind of sick monster are you?”

We later learn that Edgar was the one responsible for the grave digging, as he decided to reunite Jason Blossom’s corpse with his sister.  Talk about twisted!  Cheryl gets a lucky break when she works with an “angel in disguise,” as Alice finally comes to her senses and helps Cheryl escape with the remaining twin, recognizing that Betty needs help.  It’s about time, Alice!  Cheryl recruits the Serpents and Poisons and shows up to help protect her friends with her trusty bow and arrow.  Go Cheryl!

2

“I’d start running if I were you…”

The most intriguing part of the episode for me was the actual final quest, as Penelope does not hold back.  Jughead, Betty, Archie, and Veronica are left in the nature preserve and stumble upon a series of tests that are life threatening.  We get a grizzly fight for Archie, a dangerous game of spin the bottle for Veronica, a battle of kings for Jughead, and a one bullet scenario for our girl, Betty.  The trials had me on the edge of my seat, as our favorite characters desperately try to prevail while protecting one another.  Penelope is amused and somewhat impressed by their performances, but she is not above taking matters into her own hands.

When Betty is presented with the “one bullet” task, she has to shoot her father before he shoots her and her friends.  Betty shoots him, but Penelope appears and tells him that he was always a terrible serial killer, shooting Hal in the head right in front of his daughter.  The threat is over for now, as Cheryl and the others step in to save the day and Betty and Veronica get the antidote to the poison from the chalices.  Penelope and Chic are gone for now, but we know that things are never truly boring in Riverdale, as we are about to find out.

1

“To the future…”

Even though we get plenty of reveals during the season finale, the mystery is far from over.  When Betty and the others return to the Farm, we discover that “the worthy ascended,” but they left Kevin behind.  Alice and Polly are gone, but this isn’t even the most shocking part.  An FBI agent comes to see Betty and we learn that Alice was actually an FBI informant, working with…her son, Charles.  Charles is very much alive, but will he be able to find his mother now with Bughead’s help? 

Meanwhile, Cheryl begins to bond with her brother, Jason.  Yes, you heard me right.  She welcomes Jason’s corpse back into her home, which is very disturbing.  Hermione is arrested for the attempted murder of Hiram and Hiram reminds us, “You don’t even know what’s coming,” which couldn’t be more accurate.  What else does he have planned from behind bars?  I’m anxious to find out.

The most interesting twist happens at the very end of the season finale when Jughead, Betty, Archie, and Veronica make a pact to keep their lives drama free.  However, we flash forward to spring break of their senior year and we see Archie, Betty, and Veronica standing over a fire, covered in blood.  They burn Jughead’s hat and say that they will never speak of this.  Talk about a major cliffhanger!  Stay tuned for season 4 Riverdale fans! I can’t wait!

I hope you enjoyed the list and feel free to post your own thoughts and theories on Riverdale in the comments section below.  Thanks so much for reading and happy viewing!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Riverdale” season 3 episode 21: “Harvest Happy Hour”

Happy Thursday TV fans!  After watching the CW’s Riverdale season 3 episode 21, I realized that illusions can be extremely powerful.  If we believe in something strongly enough, it has power over us.  But what happens when we break that hold?  Does our world come crashing down or do we unleash even greater threats in the process?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “Chapter Fifty-Six:  The Dark Secret of Harvest House,” Betty discovers even more secrets about the Farm, as Edgar tries to get her to tap into her darkest fears.  Meanwhile, Archie challenges Hiram Lodge to a boxing match and Ethel reveals the identity of the Gargoyle King to Jughead.  My top 5 moments from Riverdale season 3 episode 21 are:

5

“You are the illusion.”

In last week’s episode, Betty agreed to stay at the Farm, fearing the wrath of the Black Hood, but was this really the best decision?  In this episode, Betty has some one-on-one sessions with Edgar Evernever, as he uses some kind of hypnosis on her.  Betty begins to see another version of herself, which represents the darkness within her, as she is told that she has “the serial killer gene,” which apparently means that she has a predisposition to violence.  Betty continues with these sessions, but what she uncovers is even more shocking.

4

“I won.”

So, I initially thought it was a little ridiculous for Archie to challenge Hiram Lodge to an underground boxing match, but things started to make a lot more sense when I understood Veronica’s end game here.  After talking with Archie’s mom and her FBI friend, Veronica and Archie realize that they need to catch Hiram in the act.  What better way, than to have an illegal underground fight club going on with lots of underage drinking and gambling?  The fight is entertaining enough, but Hiram getting taken away was the real showstopper.

Veronica confronts her father and tells him that she has won, revealing that she knows what he did, but we know that Hiram always finds a loophole.  Later on in the episode, Archie goes to Veronica to explore their potential romance, but Reggie is already there.  It looks like Reggie beat Archie to the punch this time, but where does Veronica’s heart truly lie?  We’ll have to wait and see.

3

“Get your hands off my girlfriend.”

After some Nancy Drew investigating, Betty realizes that the Farm is harvesting organs.  Edgar tells the members of the Farm that they are undergoing some kind of procedure that will translate their mental pain into physical pain, while stealing some of their major organs.  Betty tries to warn her friends, who seem skeptical at first.  Cheryl initially tries to tell Betty that she has just booked her ticket to Shutter Island, but she starts to connect the dots as well when Betty shows her the proof.  Cheryl panics, explaining that Toni was just taken away for a procedure, while Choni fans everywhere held their breath. 

Cheryl gets Toni out of there and pushes her out the window so that she can get a chance at freedom.  Cheryl stays behind, which was beyond heartbreaking, but I am relieved that Cheryl and Toni are finally seeing the truth behind the Farm.  We know that Toni has broken Cheryl out of some tough jams already, so hopefully she will recruit the Serpents and the Pretty Poisons to help Cheryl and the others escape.

2

“They’re gonna come for me…”

Cheryl is not the only one in danger, as Betty is now strapped to the table.  Edgar tells her that they are preparing her for her “procedure,” but Betty reminds him that her friends are going to come for her.  Let’s just hope that Jughead isn’t too busy with his own discovery to rescue Betty.  It looks like she can use some serious back-up right about now.  Perhaps Alice will finally snap out of this trance once she sees that her daughter is in danger?  Let’s hope so!

1

“I can tell you who the King is…”

While all the commotion is happening at the Farm, Jughead has an interesting conversation with Ethel, who is now back in action.  Ready for the reveal?  Ethel claims that the Gargoyle King is Jason Blossom, but “that’s impossible,” as Jughead points out…you know, since Jason Blossom is dead and all.  Jughead doesn’t leave anything up to chance; however, and digs up Jason’s grave, discovering that there is no body in there…so what does this mean?  Is it possible that Jason Blossom is truly alive or is someone using his identity as a cover-up?  I’m not sure, but I definitely did not see this twist coming and I’m beyond excited for the season finale next week.  Stay tuned!

My Ship of the week ending 5/4/19 on TV goes to…

Veronica Lodge and Archie Andrews on Riverdale, better known as Varchie!  I was beyond heartbroken when these two split up, as it seemed like fate continued to defy them.  Veronica and Archie sort of remind me of Romeo and Juliet.  They have a beautiful and passionate love, but some things are way beyond their control.  But can they learn from their past mistakes?  Varchie’s biggest problem was Veronica’s father, Hiram Lodge, and it looks like the feud between Archie and Hiram is not even close to being over.  I’m not sure that challenging him to a boxing match will solve all their problems, but it will be interesting to see if Varchie can survive this.

I have been seeing some sparks flying between Veronica and Archie for quite some time now and Josie’s departure has only brought them even closer together.  Josie recognized that her and Archie were not end game, but there is something really epic about Varchie.  Archie asks Veronica to the prom as friends, but their slow dance suggested that their love is not over just yet.  I’ve been rooting for these two to get back together for quite some time, but let’s hope that they are able to recognize what is truly important.

What’s next for Varchie?  We’ll have to stay tuned to find out, but we will have to see if they are able to overcome the family drama and prioritize their relationship.  Veronica has been there for Archie every step of the way, but he also broke her heart and she may need some time to heal.  As long as Archie stops blaming himself for literally everything, perhaps he can see that he does deserve happiness with Veronica.  I can’t wait to see what happens next for these two!

Stay tuned for a recognized Ship on TV each week!

Best,

Amy Koto, TV Fanatic Girl
