Ranking the top 5 moments from “Riverdale” Season 4 Episode 18: “Dear Diary”

Happy Thursday TV fans! After watching The CW’s Riverdale season 4 episode 18, we took a trip down memory lane, as Betty remembered what it felt like to fall in love with the boy next door. But sometimes that love is just a fantasy and what’s really important is what has been in front of you the entire time.

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

In last night’s episode, “Chapter Seventy-Five: Lynchian,” Barchie contemplates taking their feelings to the next level, but will they follow through? Meanwhile, Jughead continues to investigate the creepy VHS tapes and a new suspect is revealed.

My top 5 moments from Riverdale season 4 episode 18 are:

5

“I want in…”

Apparently we are running out of story ideas for Reggie, as he tells Kevin and Fangs that he wants in on their tickle operation. I honestly forgot about this plot, but Kevin agrees and Reggie is ready to prove his worth in this…endurance sport?

Things get complicated when Reggie convinces Kevin to cut out Terry so that they can run their own operation and keep all the profits, which leads to an interesting Vixens/Bulldogs tickle extravaganza, but Terry shows off just how terrifying he can be.

Did you guys really think he would sit there quietly why you stole his idea and kept the profits?

4

“Veronica Lodge and Cheryl Blossom do not back down from a fight.”

Inspiring words for sure, but Veronica may be in over her head here. After she begins to corner the college market with their maple rum, a local family warns her that she is cutting into their business.

The Malloy family trashes the place after they leave and Hiram decides to pay one of them a visit. He doesn’t shoot him and ends up getting badly beaten, but I’m not sure that Daddy Dearest has changed as much as you think, Veronica.

Cheryl wants out of the business and Veronica is proud of her father. Only we cut to a scene where Hiram goes back and kills Mr. Malloy.

Did he just start another feud in Riverdale? Has he just endangered his family even more? We’ll have to wait and see…

3

“You’ll find what you’re looking for…”

Charles and Jughead are still on the case, determined to find out who is behind the creepy VHS tapes. Ethel Muggs seems to be the prime suspect, but Jughead has his doubts. After looking into things further, Jughead has a theory that perhaps they are looking for a filmmaker.

They head to a 24 hour old video store, which features the “Scarlet Suite.” It is a back room that has different VHS tapes that have been traded or dropped off. Jughead and Betty’s “Ponytail Playmate” was there along with a video of Mr. Blossom killing Jason.

After Ethel explains that she kept the sex tape to prevent anyone else from seeing it, Jughead rules her out, but it looks like this secret room has been inspiring some ill thoughts for quite a while.

2

“Why are we here?”

A fair question for sure, as Betty and Archie start to truly think about what their lives would be like if they were together. Betty and Archie both admit to being in love with their current partners, but they also feel this magnetic connection toward one another.

Betty reads through her old diary and Archie writes a song, but after some wise words from Cheryl, Betty realizes that perhaps they just feel safe with one another because everything is changing.

They agree to put a pause on these feelings so it looks like Barchie may be off the table…for now.

But with all these secret videos, it may only be a matter of time before some of their secret kisses are shown to Jughead and Veronica. Let’s hope no one gets hurt…

1

“It’s probably for the best…”

After Terry informs Mr. Honey about the tickle fight, he shows just how much of a nemesis he can be. Only, it may not be all talk. At the end of the episode, Cheryl receives a video similar to Jughead’s. People in masks mock the Cliff/Jason video and we see Mr. Honey at the video store.

We know that Mr. Honey and Cheryl have been clashing for a while, but is he the one behind the tapes? It’s looking that way, but we know that there’s always another twist around the corner in Riverdale…

Either way, it looks like Mr. Honey may be far from sweet, but is he a match for our favorite characters in Riverdale?

Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Riverdale” Season 4 Episode 17: “Wicked Little Town”

Happy Thursday TV fans! After watching The CW’s Riverdale season 4 episode 17, we were reminded that “Riverdale was and is a wicked little town.” The creepy VHS tapes are back, but they take a back seat to The Variety Show, as we sit back and enjoy another musical themed episode.

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

In last night’s episode, “Chapter Seventy-Four: Wicked Little Town,” Bughead and Varchie both hit a snag, but is it enough to bring another ship together? Meanwhile, Kevin stands up for his right to perform a song from “Hedwig,” but Mr. Honey is not exactly pleased.

My top 5 moments from Riverdale season 4 episode 17 are:

5

“This is not your business.”

Archie has some concerns when he sees Hiram working out at his gym. Hiram pretends that he is perfectly fine and is clearly frustrated that Veronica told Archie about his condition, but Hiram is a proud man and is not about to show his weakness to anyone.

Later on, Veronica and Archie have a fight when she finds out that he didn’t say anything or take him to the doctor. Archie tries to tell Veronica that sometimes there is no reasoning with her father, but it looks like these two are heading in different directions…

4

“I think you should go rogue.”

Kevin is outraged when Mr. Honey informs him that he is not allowed to perform a song from the controversial “Hedwig” for the variety show. Kevin stands up for himself and reminds Mr. Honey that many students are “screaming on the inside” and that they are people, not numbers.

Luckily Kevin has the support of his friends and classmates, as he decides to “go rogue” and give a surprise performance during the day. The performance is out of this world, but Mr. Honey is far from amused.

3

“It is not a sleepover without greasy pizza.”

Well said, Betty! I don’t know about you, but I always love a Riverdale sleepover party and this one is certainly a lot of fun.

Kev is unsure if a “makeover montage” can really help, but I think it’s safe to say that it does the trick and this was my favorite musical number of the episode. More please!

2

“We urge you to hear our plea.”

Cheryl promises Kevin that she will talk some sense into Mr. Honey, which leads to another fantastic musical number featuring the Vixens. Mr. Honey does not approve of Cheryl’s sugary sweet number and reminds her that he doesn’t want to promote “highly sexualized” performances and even has the audacity to hit Cheryl with her own catch phrase…“toodles!”

Mr. Honey says that if anyone performs a song from “Hedwig,” they will be banned from prom, which ignites a peaceful protest. Of course, Mr. Honey counters with canceling the variety show. It’s clear he is not going down without a fight…

1

“The show must go on…”

The moment we have all been waiting for…a Barchie kiss?! I can’t say that I am really surprised since several hints have been thrown our way, but after the clash between both Varchie and Bughead in this episode, Betty and Archie confide in one another and end up sharing a secretive, passionate kiss.

Later on, Jughead and Veronica apologize, leaving Betty and Archie staring at each other from their bedroom windows, understanding that they can’t pursue their desires, but it’s only a matter of time before this potential romance can set all of their friendships on fire…

Either way, the show must go on and “The Archies” put on a fantastic performance at Pop’s for all of their friends and family.

Even Mr. Honey makes it to the show, but Jughead brings us back to the plot, staring out at all of the cameras, wondering who is really sending the creepy tapes?

We are left with a disturbing tape of someone dressed as Betty and Jughead, as Betty cracks Jughead’s head open with a rock. This threat should be taken seriously, but it looks like we will have to wait until April 29th for another new episode.

So, who is sending the tapes? Could Charles or Chic be behind this, someone from The Farm or someone completely new? I can’t wait to find out!

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!

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…

Riverdale CW 5

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
Images courtesy of The CW

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!

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.

Riverdale The CW 6

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!

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.

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 “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!

“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!

“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!

“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!
