aahh I would LOVE to see those two canoodling.
Yes! Especially because there is no new Riverdale next week, we’ll have a special episode dedicated to the season of Sabrina. Very excited to discuss. It’ll be intended as a recap, of sorts, of the full season since people will probably be binging at their own pace and will hopefully get to listen to the pod after… Read more
Ah, just revisited the scene and you’re absolutely right. The tunnel used to be used for smuggling booze during prohibition, which was a detail I had completely forgotten about, haha. This show is so much.
I see what you’re saying, but I took the tunnel being used by “conversion boys” as something that happened in the past. It’s locked now, but it used to not be back in the day, thus making the Fox Forest (a small forest on the edge of a midsize town in upstate NY) a “legacy” location for cruising, a place that wouldn’t… Read more
Oh my god.... then I’m holding out hope for Laurie Metcalf to turn up as Grandma Jones.
Oh, you’re right! And Jughead even evokes this connection by referring to Tony Todd’s character as “Nightmare On Elm Street” in this episode! Whoa.
If you buy into the theory that there’s some sort of cult behind/in support of The Black Hood wanting to cleanse the town of sin (a la the village of Sanford in the movie Hot Fuzz), then I’d like to imagine the gents in the photo are its founding members, and that we may be seeing some of them again or already have!… Read more
That scene gave me so much hope! I was thrilled that the show was (seemingly) going to explore a platonic LGBTQ friendship, which would be truly unique for TV—two queer friends who can talk to/support/rely on one another, without sex getting in the way. Alas. Instead of continually pulling Varchie + Bughead apart, the… Read more
A super valid point on Grundy being the key. Who knew about her status as a sexual predator beyond the main “Scooby Gang”? Alice, Fred, Dilton, and.... Hal and Keller? My memory is a little foggy, but worth a re-watch for this fact alone.
Definitely definitely definitely on board with this multiple Black Hoods theory, though we decided to omit any mention of it here for the sake of keeping the article straightforward. At this point, it’d be most realistic if there were a “killer” Black Hood and a “caller” Black Hood. The former is deeply disturbed and… Read more
WOW. This would be all sorts of TWISTED. My head is spinning right now.
It looks like a match more than most other characters, but I’m still not 100% convinced. However, I think the show HAS (suspiciously) had Keller show up at just the right time on multiple occasions. So either they’re dropping subtle hints, or I’m experiencing some intense confirmation bias.
Honestly a great guess imo—especially if the “killer” and the “caller” ARE two different people. The show just hasn’t given us enough time with Dilton to really even take a stab at what his grander motivations might be. Although we do know he’s a bit of a gun-toting nut and I’d totally buy into him having some sort of… Read more
