I'm guessing Archie's uncle is going to stick around for awhile?

The Stonewall prep kids are crazy and should go away.
I'm not too fond of the cheerleading coach either.

Good to see Veronica and Cheryl teaming up their business to create some different rum.

Where was Alice? And Jellybean??

This was an OK episode with frustrating things happening in it. So, if football officials in high school games are being paid off, it would make sense to me for parents to not have their children play football. Now, with everything that has come out about C.T.E. & other health problems that have been repercussions of playing that sport it seems for most people the risk would not be worth the reward if people are knowingly going out of their way to injure players, but yes for some it is worth that risk of course.

Moving on. I'm unsure why ''Uncle Frank'' was needed on this show, but but from what I saw in this episode it seems like he's just going to be from my perspective another depressing character on ''Riverdale''. Hopefully I'm wrong about that.

Also, Brett bragging to a person that he just met about attacking someone seems foolish to me. He didn't do this yet I believe, but Betty & Veronica still thought that he would. Even knowing how Brett is portrayed, it's still hard to for me to expect him to brag about attacking someone, without thinking that that could be used as blackmail later.

Then there was Hiram apparently patenting a rum & then threatening to sue his daughter who is I do not know for sure if she's even of legal age to sell alcohol. If Veronica is 18 then it is likely legal for her to sell alcohol. I don't recall it being mentioned that she's that age though at this time.

Finally & certainly not most important, but why do Brett, Jughead, & Betty need to go each go to Yale? I can understand Jughead & Betty not wanting to be apart from each other, but it's still odd that Brett I guess will go there with them. The ending of this episode confused me. So Jughead got accepted to Yale & then Brett was I guess intimidating Betty in that final scene & he's going to Yale also. If anyone understands exactly what happened here then please explain.

The ending scene was a flashforward that showed Bret telling Betty look like she got her wish, Jughead won't be going to Yale, it will just be her and Bret. Like they want us to think Betty supposedly killed Jughead cause of Yale.

Thanks, though even knowing about "Dark Betty", I have strong doubts that she'd resort to murdering Jughead, but am curious how this concludes.

No problem. Yeah, I'm thinking it's either from Jughead's story or they fake his death.

Okay episode. every episode this season has been unmemorable and a tad boring but I like that at least the storylines are more realistic this year.

I was liking Fred's brother okay, and I did want him to stick around and be a good guy to Archie, but I have feeling it wont be that easy. I do believe his story about Fred... It sounds like something Fred would do for his family. But him giving pills to a kid, even when Archie asked him not to was fishy. I love that Archie's mom is there for him though and being a good mom.

The stonewall group are so annoying. Brett is so gross and I cant wait for him to get his just desserts.

Cheryls storylines are always so boring lol. Dont care about her cheer problems. Cheryl would be a total nightmare if she were a real student lol.

I did like the tiny BV scene. WE NEED MORE FRIENDSHIP MOMENTS AND GENUINE SCENES PLEASE. I also liked all the bughead moments.

I still hate Hiram and wish they would get rid of him already.

The cheer was so dumb. As was 17 year olds drinking rum at a restaurant in plain sight lol.

The flashfoward was weird. So Betty gets in Yale then?
