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.

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?

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!

Have a performance on TV that you think is simply outstanding? Feel free to contact me with your nomination for the week by Friday at midnight!

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.

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

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.

Choni The CW 3

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!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Riverdale” Season 4 Episode 12: “True Honor”

Happy Thursday TV fans! After watching The CW’s Riverdale season 4 episode 12, I learned that sometimes you win and sometimes you lose, but it’s usually a draw. When it comes to true honor, winning isn’t always the answer.

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

In last night’s episode, “Chapter Sixty-Nine: Men of Honor,” Jughead and Bret prepare for a duel, but Betty and Alice have a side mission of their own that may be more important. Meanwhile, Archie gets caught in the middle of Uncle Frank’s past, an old nemesis returns, and Veronica heads out to New York to catch up with Katy Keene.

My top 5 moments from Riverdale season 4 episode 12 are:

5

“New York is my town.”

Veronica takes a trip out to New York for a college interview and spends some quality time with her old friend, Katy Keene, presenting us with a fun crossover to prepare us for the premiere of the spin-off series.

Riverdale The CW 7

After witnessing a super fun shopping spree with these two, Katy reveals that her mother is very ill, causing Veronica to have her own moment of self-reflection.

After Hermione reveals that Hiram is also very sick, Veronica decides to change her name back to Lodge. It may seem like a small gesture, but Hiram is clearly pleased with this.

Veronica was missing something, but will she find it in New York next year or will she stick around in Riverdale? We’ll have to wait and see, but it looks like we will get some serious Varchie screen time in next week’s episode.

4

“Bret is afraid of me?”

I mean, you are pretty intimidating, Betty, especially after smashing that headstone to pieces, but I am loving the rivalry between our girl and annoying Bret. In this episode, we get the team-up we fell in love with before, as Alice decides to tag along for Betty’s mission.

Riverdale The CW 5
Images courtesy of The CW

Betty and Alice meet with Mrs. Chipping, trying to piece together what happened to her husband and we finally discover that Moose left because Bret threatened him with a sex scandal video tape.

Betty fears that there may be a tape of her and Jughead as well and is determined to find his collection, but Bret is not making things easy with his secret alarms.

3

“And may the best man win…”

The duel between Jughead and Bret is quite eventful, as we get three rounds to determine who the best man truly is.

Riverdale The CW 6
Images courtesy of The CW

Round one is fencing and Bret takes the point, but Jughead literally knocks Bret out in round two, which was quite entertaining to see.

The final round is a chess match, but Jughead ultimately decides to throw the match, explaining that he is done playing this game. Even though Jughead doesn’t win the match, he is a winner in our books as he takes the moral high ground here.

However, it’s only a matter of time before we discover how Jughead meets his untimely demise (or not) and it’s hard to pinpoint the exact motive, but it looks like the Baxter Brothers book series may still be at the center of it.

2

“I will ruin you…”

Cheryl and Toni (Choni) seem to be quite the hit with their new Maple Club, but things get complicated when Nick Sinclair shows up. Cheryl spots him from behind the curtain and this brings up a lot of horrible memories for her. In case you forgot, Cheryl was drugged by Nick during her sophomore year and Veronica and the Pussycats came to her rescue.

Riverdale The CW 4
Images courtesy of The CW

Cheryl really opens up to Toni about what happened and we also learn that Toni went through something similar in her past as well. She shows her love and support for her girlfriend, but she also takes things one step further and decides to teach Nick Sinclair a lesson.

Toni teams up with Kevin and Fangs with their side hustle and videos Nick being tickled. Toni tells Nick that she will ruin him and saves the day, proving once again why Choni is such an incredible couple. I love these two so much! Go Toni!

1

“I think we need to be more worried about Donna.”

Even though Bret stops Betty and Alice from taking his precious collection, Betty does manage to slip Donna’s tape by him. Betty discovers Donna’s confession, which is an identical speech about a teacher she had an affair with.

Betty recognizes that she is lying and has done this speech before, but what is Donna’s end game here?

Betty is right about suspecting Donna as the greater threat, but what does she want with Jughead?

Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” Season 15 Episode 11: “The Gamblers”

Happy Saturday TV fans!  After watching The CW’s Supernatural season 15 episode 11, the Winchesters asked themselves if luck could really fix everything?  Well maybe not, but that will never stop them from doing the right thing, even if the odds are not in their favor.

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

In Thursday night’s episode, “The Gamblers,” Sam and Dean head to Alaska to see if they can turn their luck around.  Meanwhile, Castiel receives a surprising phone call that could change everything.

My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 15 episode 11 are:

5

“He wants us off our game.”

Sam and Dean’s luck has not turned around just yet, but they start to wonder why Chuck/God has stripped it away from them.  Dean recognizes that Chuck wants to make them weak, but what is Chuck’s ultimate plan here?

It may be possible that Chuck wants Sam and Dean to question everything so that he can take advantage of their decisions or is this all one big test for them to prove their worth in the final battle?

We’ll have to wait to find out…

4

“Magic Pool Hall.”

I don’t know about you, but I thought this was one of the coolest concepts and episodes I have seen on SPN in a while.  The idea of a Magic Pool Hall to gamble a chance at doubling your luck really worked for me.

SPN The CW 2

Sam and Dean learn that if their coin goes blank, they have to leave.  There’s always a catch and we realize that once your luck is gone, you are out of time, but does Dean have what it takes to wipe out the competition?

3

“I learn from my brother.”

Dean proves to be quite the worthy opponent and I was beyond impressed with his pool skills, but Sam and Dean quickly realize that someone is stealing everyone’s luck…Atrox Fortuna, the Roman goddess of fate and luck.

SPN The CW 3

Atrox Fortuna claims that Dean is just a “beach read” and is way more interested in Sam playing.  Sam accepts the challenge and shows off his own skills, proving that he has learned quite a bit from big brother Dean over the years.

Go Sam!

2

“Don’t play his game. Make him play yours.”

Sam and Dean decide to challenge Atrox Fortuna to free everyone in the pool hall, even though it looks like their luck may be running out.  Atrox Fortuna seems intrigued by their offer, but shows off her own skills before Sam even gets his turn.

Sam and Dean surprisingly leave with their lives, but are shocked when everyone else follows them out of the pool hall.  It seems their honorable acts did not go unnoticed, as Atrox Fortuna says she thought their kind no longer existed…heroes.

The Winchesters have certainly earned this title, but let’s hope they can use Atrox Fortuna’s advice to stop Chuck/God in the end.

Dean starts Baby back up and it looks like the Winchesters are back!

1

“It’s really him.”

Castiel tracks down a lead and is shocked to learn that Jack Klein has been spotted.  After witnessing Jack devour some hearts, Castiel is not sure what he is about to discover, but we learn that it is the real Jack and Billie has been keeping him hidden in The Empty to keep him off Chuck’s radar.

We witness a beautiful and heartwarming reunion between Jack, Castiel, Sam, and Dean, which honestly brought tears to my eyes, as their son returns to the family.

SPN The CW 1

It seems that our theories have been spot on, as Jack may be the only one who is actually strong enough to stop Chuck/God for good.  And so the countdown to the end begins…

Stay tuned SPN family!  New episodes return on Monday, March 16th!  We’re nearing the end now!

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

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…

4

“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…

3

“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…

2

“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!

1

“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.

Riverdale The CW 2
Images courtesy of The CW

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? 

Riverdale The CW 3

We’ll have to see how this plays out…

Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Shameless” season 10 episode 12: “Gallavich!”

Happy Monday TV fans!  After watching Showtime’s Shameless season 10 episode 12 season finale, we knew it was going to be a stressful day, but the Gallaghers refuse to let hate win, reminding us that true love can conquer all…even Mickey’s dad.

Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not watched the latest episode yet.

In last night’s episode, “Gallavich!” Ian and Mickey prepare for their wedding day, but things get complicated when Mickey’s dad decides to burn down their venue.  Meanwhile, Lip tries to get through to Tami, Liam works his magic with Frank, and Julia gets punched in the face.

My top 5 moments from the Shameless season 10 episode 12 season finale are:

5

“You got game son.”

Liam tries to come up with the perfect present for Ian and Mickey and decides that he wants to get them a honeymoon car without spending money, which is where Frank comes into play.  Liam tricks Frank by telling him that they are selling the house, which gets one of Faye’s cars in the right place at the right time.

Frank is impressed with Liam, but tells him he’s not going to the wedding.  Liam reminds him that they don’t expect him to show up to much and actually talks some sense into his father, as Frank arrives to show his support…and to reunite with an old flame.

I thought it was nice that Ian spoke to Debbie about missing Monica, but no mention of Fiona not attending?

4

“You got another mask?”

Tami is furious at Lip for renting the house in Southside without talking to her first and tells him that she is going to take Fred to Milwaukee without him.

Lip is beyond heartbroken and resorts to drinking at the wedding, but luckily he shows up at Brad’s door and tells him he needs to find a meeting.

Tami has a change of heart and decides to move in with Lip after all.  I’m not the biggest fan of Tami, but I don’t want Lip to be separated from his son.  We’ll have to see how this all plays out in the final season, but it’s clear that Lip is destined to be a great father and now he’ll get the chance to prove it.

3

“Welcome to the Southside, Julia.”

Julia’s back and now she claims that she is moving in with Debbie. 

Shameless Showtim3 6

Sandy has other ideas after her own intimate night with Debbie and punches Julia…right in the face.  It’s not like she didn’t have this coming.  Nice Sandy!

Julia continues to argue with her mom and stirs up some more drama, but it looks like she is moving on to Carl...at least for a casual hookup.  At the end of the episode, the police show up looking for Debbie, charging her with statutory rape since Julia is not 18 yet.  Our girl Debbie Gallagher makes a run for it, but it looks like her love triangle fiasco is now catching up with her.

Run, Debbie!

2

“Ask me fool!”

Kevin Ball’s Keg Zone is really making some impressive progress, as Kev begins to save a stash of money.  He doesn’t initially tell V about it, which makes her suspicious, but we later find out he was saving to buy V…an engagement ring!

Shameless Showtime 3

Kev asks V to marry him after Ian and Mickey’s wedding and it’s about time!  So happy for these two!!!!!!

1

“At last!”

After Mickey’s father burns down The Bamboo Lotus, Ian and Mickey are out of a venue.  Debbie suggests that they “white trash this shit” up, as they pool together their resources.  Eventually, they settle on The Polish Doll, but the owner is not a fan of the LGBTQ community.

Luckily, Lip and Debbie get creative, as Debbie wears a wedding dress, claiming to be the bride.  She keeps the owner distracted with her wedding day jitters while the real wedding takes place.

“At Last” is the perfect song choice, Ian!  We finally get to witness Gallavich earning their first step toward happily ever after as these two tie the knot!

The wedding is romantic and perfect and I teared up quite a bit, but we also get some true Gallavich adventure at the end when Mickey’s father tries to shoot up their honeymoon.

It’ll never be quiet for these two, but at least they have each other!

Stay tuned for the final season of Shameless!!!!!
