Ranking the top 5 moments from “Riverdale” Season 4 Episode 16: “The Locked Room”

Happy Thursday TV fans! After watching The CW’s Riverdale season 4 episode 16, we were reminded that faking your own death is no simple task. Illusions can certainly take a toll, but is it all worth it in the end to solve the perfect murder?

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

In last night’s episode, “Chapter Seventy-Three: The Locked Room,” Jughead and Betty are determined to wrap up the case once and for all. The mystery is solved, but there may be a few loose ends left after all…

My top 5 moments from Riverdale season 4 episode 16 are:

5

“Rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated.”

Jughead Jones channels his very own Mark Twain, revealing that he is actually alive to the Stonewall Prep cronies and Mr. DuPont. He’s not holding anything back anymore and he and Betty lock everyone in the room together, determined to get to the bottom of the mystery before they open the doors again.

We certainly get a lot of reveals jam-packed into this episode. We discover that the goal was to execute the perfect murder against him so that one of his classmates could obtain the contract to the Baxter Brother series.

Mr. Chipping’s role comes into play as we learn that Moose was the original target, but Mr. Chipping decided to get him out of there before anything happened to him. This is not the first time this formula of perfect murder has been put into place, as we learn that every single ghost writer for the Baxter Brothers series went through something similar and of course they are ready to lawyer up.

Our “friendly neighborhood doctor of death” played his part to make it look like Jughead was dead, which is something I had predicted earlier on so I was happy to confirm this theory.

As the pieces all come together, Bughead is ready to serve some justice. You should really never mess with the ultimate dynamic duo…

4

“Let’s loop back to the original sin.”

Good idea, Jughead! Even though the Stonewall Prep cronies are responsible for Jughead’s attempted murder, Mr. DuPont is far from innocent. We learn that he murdered his three classmates and made their deaths all look like accidents.

Any time someone got close to the truth, he took them out of his way. We learn that Jughead was brought into the mix because Mr. DuPont was trying to lure out his grandfather, Forsythe, to really tie up all loose ends.

Well, Forsythe is “live and in the flesh,” as he shows up with FP to confront Mr. DuPont. It’s certainly over for Mr. DuPont, but he decides to jump out of the window to commit suicide rather than deal with the consequences of his own actions.

Seriously, they must fix that window a lot…

3

“The counter to your counter.”

Bret doesn’t seem too worried, ready to take a deal and lawyer up to protect himself, but Charles has another idea in mind. He leaves the room while FP and Jughead take over, serpent style.

Bret is beaten into a confession and it looks like he finally got what he deserved. This guy was asking for a punch every single time he opened his mouth.

So long, Bret! Hope to see you never!

2

“You wanted revenge.”

Even though Bret is beyond annoying, the real mastermind of the group has always been Donna. Our girl Betty pays Donna a visit, revealing that Donna’s grandmother was Jane Dallas Brown, one of the original classmates murdered by Mr. DuPont. In addition, we discover that Mr. DuPont stole the idea of Tracy True from her, explaining why Donna wanted to take over the series so much.

Donna initially doesn’t seem threatened by Betty, but Betty promises to leak this story to everyone if she doesn’t back down from the contract. After all, she can link this “entire web of death” back to her.

Tracy deserves better! Go Betty!

1

“Your secret’s safe with me.”

Even though the mystery is solved, Cheryl takes a moment to point out that the kiss between Betty and Archie looked pretty real. Betty assures her that it was all an act, but perhaps there was an unforeseen consequence to all of this.

Is there hope for Barchie or will Bughead continue to thrive?

We’ll have to stay tuned to find out. The drama now moves toward the new variety show, as Archie decides to make another vow or toast to the group. Let’s see how this one works out…

New episodes return April 8th! Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Riverdale” Season 4 Episode 15: “Murder in a Small Town”

Happy Thursday TV fans! After watching The CW’s Riverdale season 4 episode 15, we were reminded that “Life’s not an Agatha Christie novel, it’s a lot messier.” Although I certainly can’t get enough of this small town mystery drama.

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

In last night’s episode, “Chapter Seventy-Two: To Die For,” Betty, Archie, and Veronica finally allow themselves a chance to grieve, but it doesn’t help that they are being framed for the murder of their best friend. Meanwhile, Cheryl reaches out to Betty, Alice films a documentary, and Bret and Donna make their next move.

My top 5 moments from Riverdale season 4 episode 15 are:

5

“Don’t let them drown you.”

Cheryl is no stranger to family tragedy and decides to reach out to Betty to show her support. Although when it comes to Jughead’s untimely death, she just seems genuinely sorry about calling him a hobo…

Cheryl tells Betty that she knows what it feels like to lose her better half and explains that she will keep her on constant suicide watch, but Betty is not really sure she wants Cheryl tagging along.

4

“I cannot wait to find out….”

Hermosa is not about to stay quiet after finding out that Veronica is under investigation. She does some digging of her own and finally meets Archie. Although perhaps she should really consider knocking next time…

Veronica does not seem threatened by Hermosa and it looks like her skills will come in handy later on when Hermosa does some digging on Donna and Bret.

Welcome to the team, Hermosa!

3

“There’s no way out of this for you.”

FP refuses to take a break until he finds out what happened to his son and follows up on an anonymous tip that leads him to Donna’s dorm room. He finds Jughead’s tie pin, but Donna puts on the water works and says that they were afraid of Betty. This leads to the flashback we previously saw of Betty, Archie, and Veronica being arrested for the “cold blooded murder” of Jughead.

Riverdale CW 6

Betty keeps her cool and reminds her friends that this was their move. Donna continues to threaten Betty even though she is shaking in her own boots, especially when a funeral service is held to honor and mourn Jughead.

Donna seems convinced that this is all some kind of “elaborate ruse” and rumors quickly begin to spread about Jughead actually being alive, but it doesn’t look like they are going to get a chance to open up that coffin.

2

“Destroyer of end games.”

Betty finally takes a moment to break down and truly grieve over Jughead, but this leads her right into the arms of Archie, as we witness a kiss between these two. Of course Cheryl manages to capture this on camera and the whole school is talking about it.

Veronica is outraged by the betrayal and Kevin takes a few hilarious minutes to discuss the Barchie and Bughead ship followings.

We later discover that this was all part of the plan to throw Donna and Bret off. Veronica was in on everything and although it was fake, it does stir up some old feelings, even though both Betty and Archie swear that there is nothing there anymore…

1

“But it worked.”

After Donna barges into the bunker to find Betty and Archie together, she really loses her cool. We don’t have to wait too much longer for the big reveal as we discover that Jughead is actually alive and was hiding under a cot in the bunker.

I can’t say that I am that surprised as I predicted this from the start, but I am very happy to see that our main character is all right. Phew!

So, now of course the question is why?

Apparently the blow to the head was not enough to kill him and Betty can only pin the “attempted murder” of Jughead on the Stonewall Prep cronies if she forces them to crack. Betty knits Jughead a new beanie and we learn that many of the parents were in on the ruse, but there is still this new mystery behind Donna, as Hermosa digs up something interesting on her.

Jughead says that this is their “smoking gun,” but what did they discover?

Is there a new connection to Mr. Chipping or Mr. DuPont or is it something else?

Stay tuned!

What are some of YOUR theories?

My performance of the week ending 2/29/20 on TV goes to…

Lili Reinhart as Betty Cooper on The CW’s Riverdale.

I never get tired of watching my girl Betty Cooper stand her ground and fight for the ones she loves. She’s relentless, courageous, smart, and the one person I want in my corner if I ever get stuck in some kind of small town mystery drama.

**Please note some spoilers are ahead if you are not caught up on the series.**

When I think about some of my all-time favorite shows on television, I think about my favorite characters and how much they have impacted me. Sarah Michelle Gellar as Buffy Summers, Holly Marie Combs as Piper Halliwell, and Evangeline Lilly as Kate Austen come to mind. I can certainly add Lili Reinhart to this growing list now, as she continues to impress me again and again with her brilliant and inspiring performances.

Betty Cooper has always been my character to root for against all odds and she is certainly in a tough spot right now, but she can use all the support she can get!

This is not the first time I have highlighted Reinhart’s performance as Betty Cooper and sometimes I feel like giving her the spotlight every single week because she deserves it. After watching season 4, episodes 13 and 14, there have been a lot of reveals and Betty is doing her best to bring down the annoying cronies from Stonewall Prep to clear her name and get justice for her beloved Jughead.

You would think that Betty might be feeling defeated or overwhelmed and yet she is somehow channeling all of her inner strength to keep fighting, refusing to give up. The Stonewall Prep cronies may be smart, but we know that Betty Cooper is way smarter and she will outmaneuver them somehow.

Donna better watch her back because the daughter of the Black Hood is coming for her. As Betty said, she is the “ultimate wild card” and my hero. Betty may be far from perfect and perhaps she takes things too far sometimes, but she has a big heart and is extremely loyal.

Betty can run circles around the adults in town and I know that she is about to channel her Carrie Mathison like theories to get to the bottom of everything, but I’m still hoping that we can somehow get a Bughead happily ever after. 

What’s next for Betty? Well, quite a lot actually. Even though Betty has just set several pieces in motion, she now needs to sit back and wait for the Stonewall Prep cronies to make their next move. I’m confident that Betty will find a way to bring them to justice, but let’s hope that Archie and Veronica continue to have her back.

Charles seems to be an ally for now, but we know that he has a lot of secrets as well after visiting Chic in jail, so our girl needs to be extra cautious. Either way, I can’t wait to find out what happens next and I know that Betty will continue to light a fire until she can get to the truth.

Watch out Quill & Skull…Betty Cooper is coming for you!

Stay tuned for a recognized performance on TV each week!

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?

4

“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.

3

“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.

Riverdale The CW 6

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!

2

“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.

1

“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!

My performance of the week ending 2/15/20 on TV goes to…

Cole Sprouse as Jughead Jones on The CW’s Riverdale.

If you are fan of Riverdale, then you know that Jughead Jones is the heart of the series. His narrations shed so much light on everything and you really get to know him through his writing and his interactions with the rest of the characters. Cole Sprouse’s performance each week is believable and true.

**Please note some spoilers are ahead if you are not caught up on the series.**

That being said, it makes it even more difficult to picture Riverdale without Jughead Jones and yet we are left trying to piece together the mystery behind his supposed murder. To make matters even worse, a lot of evidence is pointing at Jughead’s queen, Betty Cooper, which makes this even more shocking and heartbreaking for us Bughead fans.

Riverdale The CW 1

After watching season 4, episode 13, we finally catch up to that fateful night, but that doesn’t mean that we have solved the case just yet. Donna may have used a new trigger word on our girl Betty, but I have a feeling that this is all a set-up. I have to remain positive because I cannot even think about Betty being guilty under any circumstances.

In this past episode, Cole Sprouse really pulled out all the stops to make Jughead’s path toward potential demise so heartbreaking. As fans, we want to believe that there is some way for him to still be alive, creating a vortex of theories and questions to make sense of everything, but that’s part of the reason why I adore this show so much.

Sure, it may submerge itself in excess teen drama noir here and there, but the dark mysteries are so intriguing and compelling, luring you in that much more. Combine that with fantastic character dynamics and wonderful performances and you have more than a guilty pleasure on your hands.

What’s next for Jughead? Well, this might be the toughest one to figure out yet. Is Jughead really dead or is there some way to explain what has just happened? I can’t ignore the fact that we have been dancing around the plot of a “perfect murder,” so has Jughead truly cracked the case to somehow bring the real conspirators to light?

Riverdale The CW 2

I have a lot of theories, but we know that Betty has connections with the morgue and their creepy doctor friend might have been able to make Jughead appear to be dead while Betty tries to bring the real culprits to justice, but how else can we explain what has happened?

For me, there is no show without Jughead Jones and Betty Cooper, so I’m hoping that the truth can salvage this ultimate duo. Lili Reinhart is always fantastic every single week, but I have to say that I was thoroughly impressed with Cole Sprouse’s performance this past week.

Let’s hope he gets the chance to continue to shine by bringing down the real villains here. Go team Bughead!

Stay tuned for a recognized performance on TV each week!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Riverdale” Season 4 Episode 13: “Beware the Ides of March”

Happy Thursday TV fans! After watching The CW’s Riverdale season 4 episode 13, I started to wonder what one should really do when the game is fixed? Sometimes it seems like the odds are always against us, but is there still a glimmer of hope to turn our luck around?

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

In last night’s episode, “Chapter Seventy: The Ides of March,” Jughead is accused of plagiarism, as we finally catch up to that horrific night in the woods. Meanwhile, Betty is determined to get to the truth, Cheryl and Toni tag team with Veronica, and Archie contemplates the future of his father’s business.

This is the episode we have all been waiting for!

My top 5 moments from Riverdale season 4 episode 13 are:

5

“I don’t want to think about the future right now.”

After Veronica’s trip to NYC and finding out about her father’s condition, she just wants to turn everything off and have some fun. We get to witness some passionate and steamy Varchie moments as a result, but it’s clear that Veronica is having some trouble dealing with everything.

Riverdale The CW 2

Archie continues to be extremely supportive of her even though we don’t really know if their relationship will continue once college begins, but he reminds her that she is the strongest person he knows and that her father needs her.

This inspires Veronica to ignite the competitive spirit in her father, realizing that perhaps she knows him better than anyone else after all.

4

“I can’t do it…”

Archie begins to question his own future in this episode as well. Mr. Honey explains that he may not be able to graduate with his class and college admission could also be off the table for him right now.

Archie risks everything to protect Veronica after a flask is found in her locker, reminding everyone that he has nothing to lose. Archie also has to contemplate what to do with his father’s construction business. After considering selling it, he decides against it, remembering that the business has been in his family for generations.

Archie has a lot of thinking to do, but we are certain of one thing…Riverdale needs Archie Andrews!

3

“It’s time to snap a trap.”

Watch out for Choni and Veronica! They make an unstoppable team! Hermosa goes undercover to do some recon on The Maple Club, but our girls are too smart for her, leading her right into a trap. Hermosa may be good, but our girls are that much better…fact!

The girls put Hermosa in her place while allowing us to witness a welcomed montage of Choni dancing!

2

“The perfect victim to the perfect murder…”

Beware the Ides of March, Jughead! Things are about to be turned completely upside down for our main character, as Jughead is accused of plagiarism.

Riverdale The CW 7
Images courtesy of The CW

We know this is far-fetched, but Bret and the others are quite convincing, leaving behind a lot of evidence pointing in Jughead’s direction while stealing his laptop.

Jughead is determined to set things right and is also tasked with writing a new Baxter Brothers novel in five days, but Jughead is up for the challenge and decides to lean on Betty for help. Betty convinces him to write up his own story at Stonewall Prep, but is he actually now documenting the moments leading to his supposed demise?

1

“I am the daughter of the Black Hood!”

Betty has some fantastic lines in this episode and proves to be a worthy opponent. She stands up for Jughead and even has him take a lie detector test to prove that he did write his own story. Donna and the others don’t really seem to be intimidated by Betty, but one should never underestimate our girl with her very effective bobby pin!

Later on, Jughead agrees to stand down and leave Stonewall Prep when Bret threatens to release the sex tape that will damage Betty’s reputation for good. They are invited to a party in the woods and we know all too well that this is the night of Jughead’s “murder.”

Bret leads Jughead out in the woods and Betty has a chat with Donna. Donna reveals that she has been doing some digging of her own and admits that she met with Evelyn Evernever. Betty reminds her that “tangerine” has no effect on her, but apparently there is another trigger word that will make Betty turn on her loved ones.

What’s the word? We don’t know, but we are now finally caught up, as Betty is standing over Jughead’s body while Archie and Veronica discover her. So, did Betty actually kill Jughead because of the trigger or is this an elaborate plan to make her think she did?

We can’t trust this group from Stonewall Prep and it’s clear that they are well matched for our group, but let’s hope that Betty can find a way to push aside her guilt to get to the truth.

Is Jughead really dead? Did Betty really kill him? We’ll have to wait for some more answers, as episode 14 is set to release on February 26th 2020. 

Stay tuned!

My Ship of the week ending 2/8/20 on TV goes to…

Cheryl Blossom and Toni Topaz on The CW’s Riverdale, also known as Choni!

Ever since Toni told Cheryl that she thought she was sensational, I fell in love with these two. Over the seasons, they have had their ups and downs, but one thing remains. They are loyal to one another until the end and their love knows no bounds.

Choni The CW 1

**Please note some spoilers are ahead if you are not caught up on the series.**

While Choni doesn’t always get enough screen time, their relationship has truly grown and developed over the seasons. While I enjoy seeing some of the passionate and steamy moments between them, the reason why I ship them so much is because of their friendship and understanding.

Cheryl and Toni open up to one another, truly letting their walls down, as they reveal their past, fears, and desires. If anyone tries to mess with the other, they are right there to stand up for their love, bringing us timeless epic moments again and again.

In season 4, episode 12, Cheryl crosses paths with Nick Sinclair once again, bringing up some traumatizing memories. After sharing everything with Toni, Toni tells Cheryl that she has also been there before and wants to help her get through things one step at a time. This gesture is so real and honest, as Toni wears her heart on her sleeve, proving to be Cheryl’s rock.

Even though this is a heartwarming moment, Toni takes things up a notch to remind Nick Sinclair that no one should ever mess with Cheryl, proving to be the world’s best girlfriend. She lures Nick into a trap and teaches him a lesson, which had me standing up and applauding.

Cheryl may never be able to completely recover from what happened, but Toni is there to support her every step of the way, making each day that much brighter.

The transformation and growth of Choni is contagious. They always find a way to make me smile, reminding me what real love is all about.

What’s next for Choni?

Choni The CW 4

We’ll have to see how their new business venture at The Maple Club goes, but I have a feeling that Penelope may try to make some waves, but it’s nothing that our power couple can’t handle.

Choni gives us so many incredible moments week after week on the show. They have both changed and grown as characters, but they have also both learned to finally be themselves.

Both of them shine so much in their relationship and I know that they are end game for certain! I can’t wait to see more incredible moments showcasing these two and they will continue to be one of my favorite ships of all time!

What are YOUR thoughts on Choni?

Stay tuned for a recognized Ship on TV each week!

Have a Ship that you think is absolutely swoon-worthy? Feel free to contact me with your nomination for the week by Friday at midnight!
