The scenes between Lili Reinhart and Mädchen Amick were so good. Wow, they are both amazing actresses. In the end, it makes sense why Betty lets her mother rejoin The Farm. She realizes no matter what she does (and yes, she did go to an extreme, but we see so many shows also going there, even Veronica Mars) but she tried so hard to save her. She does have Toni though and can I just say how much I adore the Betty/Toni partnership?

"You're a daughter who wants her mother back, just as I want my girlfriend back," Toni tells Betty. Hopefully these two figure it out together, especially with Toni directly inside now and those idiot Farmies not suspecting a thing.

Betty's fear of being a monster makes so much sense and I love when Toni without hesitation told her she is not a monster. I loved that moment. Not that Betty seemed to be totally over her fears but it was still a great scene. Betty is not over what her psychopath father did. This is very true. Her mom abused her well before this time too. It's no wonder Betty is questioning her sanity/darkness. She will get through it.

But Hal wanting to come home... I mean, in what world is that even possible? Even in Riverdale's world there's no way... but I am sure he will try to once again manipulate his daughter's mind in order to get there, even in a crazy way. I am slightly worried about Betty... not too much with Edgar and The Farm based on what Edgar said to Betty... Betty doesn't need them, Alice, does. This is true. They don't even want Betty. But my fear is more about Hal and what he might do to her. Hope she stays strong.

Toni and Cheryl had some great scenes (so much chemistry between the actresses, you can feel how close they are off the screen) and while it's disappointing to see Cheryl still addicted to The Farm (even if it makes sense because, like her cousin, she hasn't dealt with her demons either, with the death of her brother on top of the list)... their moments were nice.

Really hope Archie doesn't go find more bears if that idiot boxer is really dead. He suspected he was on something so if he's thinking straight, he will know blood testing will prove he died due to the drugs, not the fight.

Archie/Veronica having a moment... Fred's reaction to them was spot on. So much chemistry still between the characters. I want them to reunite (and even wanted the kiss for a second before realizing they were with other people still) but like how it's going slowly. I have a feeling they will reunite before the season concludes.

We did get a couple of Core 4, Archie/Betty/Jughead/Veronica scenes. I really hope they continue.

The actor who plays Kurtz is crazy good. He looks scary just based on nonverbal communication. Jellybean is now in the clutches of the Gargoyle King... really wish Jug would have mentioned that Gladys is currently in charge of the drug operation in Riverdale. I know they are saving this reveal for the worst and biggest possible moment (probably the season finale) but for storyline and character purposes, it should have happened yesterday.

- Loved when Archie was eating a ton of burgers and said he feels like Jughead. Nice nod to the comics.

- Thanks to Cheryl, we now know that kombucha brewing is one of The Farm's regular activities.

- I still can't believe FP or Jughead have zero police experience yet they are running the town.

- Alice as a reporter showed up in this episode even with everything else going on, especially between mother/daughter.

- I have a feeling there's twist after twist with Edgar. His backstory is going to be very interesting.

- Evelyn looked terrified when Betty threatened her. Good. She better be scared.

- Edgar's slip up about "miracles" gives us a clue as to how he's making Alice and Cheryl believe they are seeing deceased love ones.

- Jughead eating all episode was hilarious.

- When Betty casually tells Toni her dad's calling her... it seemed so abnormally creepy. Like... that shouldn't be a natural comment from Betty... he's a psychopath. She literally has no one though for family. Father's a psychopath, mother's out there and has been so horrible to her for years, sister's a flake.

Looking forward to the next one!

Lastly... there's speculation flying around that maybe Jason's not dead.
