Rosa & Gina are Sophias, Boyle & Amy are Roses, Terry & Jake are Dorothys and after listening to him talk about barrels, I think we can all agree Holt is Blanche.
As soon as I saw those words, I knew Sexy Getting Ready Song was going to be in my head the rest of the day. (Really, I’m grateful. It temporarily knocked out Don’t Be a Lawyer.)
Body rolls are, in fact, very hard.
Jughead: “We need something to give our street gang moral purpose and keep us on the right side of the law.” So, after all this time, including being born into the life, he STILL doesn’t understand how street gangs work? Also, is “professional snitches” a moral purpose? Also, how is FP allowed to give anyone school…

2/20/19. Just finished binging the living hell out of this series. What started off as a fairly standard if fun procedural with a novel hook turned into absolutely one of my favorite shows. That last episode just wrecked me. So yes, some of us are just now discovering it, and thank you for your reviews. =)

You missed the best line of the episode:
If you haven’t read Latoya’s Blindspot piece, it’s well worth it.

LaToya, your Riverdale reviews are my favorite thing on this website. You absolutely need to take care of you. But self-servingly, I hope you come back after a restful break.
Well you went out on top, LaToya. Definitely one of your best reviews of the series, for the way your astute analysis and criticism never hide your genuine enthusiasm for the show. Plus you worked in references to Batman Forever *and* the Scooby-Doo movies, and you dropped a super exciting theory for the midseason…
When Betty sees the Black Hood inkblot she says butterfly. Then the next Gargoyle King one arguably looks even more like one. Her expression is priceless: “Monarch butterfly! CRAP! I just said that. I swear I’m not a obsessed lepidopterist! Can I get a do-over? Uh ... childhood jungle gym? Yeah that’s the ticket!”
Next season, Betty and Jughead will be investigating Tamagotchis possessed by the spirits of America’s most infamous serial killers, and it will be the greatest Riverdale storyline.
Veronica will be CEO of Lodge Industries and, during heavy layoffs, her bodyguard Archie will be roughing up union leaders. It will be…
