Happy Thursday TV fans! After watching The CW’s Riverdale season 4 episode 6, I learned that it is possible to save a town one kid at a time, but what happens when you decide to make a deal with the devil himself? Will it be worth it in the end? Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.
In last night’s episode, “Chapter Sixty-Three: Hereditary,” Cheryl and Toni continue to be tormented by a “demon doll.” Meanwhile, the Lodge family is reunited, Jughead uncovers a secret, and Betty visits an old enemy to get some answers about Charles. My top 5 moments from Riverdale season 4 episode 6 are:
“Nothing’s that simple with you.”
Very true, Archie, so perhaps you should heed your own advice? During the episode, Dodger continues to threaten Archie and the kids, which is making things more than difficult for him. Hiram Lodge pays Archie a visit and actually has some genuine words about his father, reminding him that he would be proud of him.
I thought this was a nice gesture from Hiram, but you can never truly trust the devil. After shots are fired at Archie’s home, endangering his mother, Archie visits Hiram and asks him for his help. Hiram claims that he can’t help him, but Archie later discovers Dodger rolled up in a bloody carpet outside of the community center.
Dodger’s fate certainly doesn’t look too good here, but I’m more concerned about Archie making a deal with the devil. I understand that he was trying to protect his mom, but being in Hiram’s debt is never a good thing…oh Archiekins!
“I’m not giving an inch!”
Hiram is also stirring up trouble with his own family, as he claims that he wants to start a Rum business with Hermosa’s help. Veronica is not exactly pleased and tells him to leave. She offers her mother a job as a hostess, but Hermione has a change of heart when her husband seduces her.
Hermione is no stranger to past mistakes, but she clearly hasn’t learned her lesson either. Temptation is a tricky thing, but it looks like Veronica is the only Lodge standing her ground here.
“Damn you demon doll!”
Cheryl and Toni continue to be tormented by the creepy Julian doll, which seems to be wreaking havoc in Cheryl’s home. This is not the only thing she has to worry about; however, as her creepy Aunt Cricket and Uncle Bedford show up, asking Cheryl to consider selling the business and house.
Toni reminds Cheryl that this might be their chance to get a fresh start and she’s right, but Cheryl doesn’t want to hear anything else once her aunt and uncle want to go down to the chapel, anxious to protect Jason.
Later on, Uncle Bedford discovers Jason’s body and threatens to have her committed so that they can take over the business, but Cheryl is not about to go out quietly. After he attacks Cheryl, Toni steps in once again to save her beloved and knocks Uncle Bedford out.
Did Toni just kill Uncle Bedford? I’m not sure, but it looks like Choni may be in for some more trouble. Perhaps Nana Rose can help out here…
“The text doesn’t lie.”
After experiencing some writer’s block, Jughead uncovers that his grandfather actually wrote the first Baxter mystery book and Mr. DuPont took credit for it. Mr. DuPont is not pleased with these accusations and threatens Jughead quite a bit.
Jughead doesn’t stay quiet; however, and asks Mr. Chipping for help, who seems more than willing to set the record straight.
During a seminar, Mr. Chipping tells Jughead that he’s sorry he wasn’t able to help him and jumps out the window. As if this wasn’t strange enough, Jughead’s classmates just sit there staring like nothing is wrong.
What the hell is going on at Stonewall Prep?
Is Mr. Chipping dead?
Is Mr. DuPont Jughead’s potential killer?
I’m not sure, but he is certainly not going to make things easy for Jughead, especially now that he will be taking over the class. It looks like Jughead may need some backup. Don’t forget to kiss your wonderful girlfriend, Betty! You need her!
“Why would I lie at this point?”
Betty continues to try and get some answers about Charles and even goes to visit an old enemy…Chic. Chic is in jail and is actually pretty forthcoming with Betty, telling her all about Charles’s darkness and how he apparently stabbed someone to death with scissors while on Jingle Jangle.
Betty confronts Charles and has him take a polygraph test, learning that he has been hiding that he is an addict. After Chic threatens to incriminate Alice by revealing where the body of the Shady Man is, Charles helps FP and says that everything is OK now.
Charles has earned Betty’s trust, but we then see him visiting Chic at the end of the episode. Charles and Chic seem to be romantically involved and it looks like Chic was working under Charles’s instruction here, but let’s hope that Betty can uncover the truth before it’s too late.
Now that we know that Charles absolutely has something to hide, what does he want from his new family?
Even though suspects are emerging in every episode in Jughead’s future potential murder, we can’t ignore the darkness in Charles. Stay tuned!
