4x17-"Chapter Seventy-Four: Wicked Little Town" Episode Discussion

"Chapter Seventy-Four: Wicked Little Town"
Airdate: April 15, 2020

"Chapter Seventy-Four: Wicked Little Town" - (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET) (TV-14, DLV) (HDTV)

THE RIVERDALE HIGH VARIETY SHOW - After the previous debacles of "Carrie: The Musical" and "Heathers: The Musical," Kevin (Casey Cott) decides to revive Riverdale High's tradition of hosting a variety show. But when Mr. Honey (guest star Kerr Smith) forbids him from performing a number from "Hedwig and the Angry Inch," Kevin and the gang rally against their principal - each by performing a number from "Hedwig," turning the variety show into a full-fledged musical that reflects the students' inner lives and struggles. And amidst all the drama, one forbidden "showmance" begins to blossom. KJ Apa, Lili Reinhart, Camila Mendes, Cole Sprouse, Madelaine Petsch, Marisol Nichols, Madchen Amick, Mark Consuelos, Skeet Ulrich, Charles Melton and Vanessa Morgan also star. Antonio Negret directed the episode written by Tessa Leigh Williams (#417). Original airdate 4/15/2020.

I already heard about this episode and what happened last week when someone at EW stupidly posted the article before the show even aired

Im quite glad I did so i could prepared for the cheating that is to come. Apparently Barchie make out on stage??? WTF???

Look, I'm fine with Barchie happening, in fact, I was all for the show shaking things up a bit, the OG pairings were getting a bit stated, but the way they did it was just icky. Archie and Betty act so in love with jug/V for them to cheat just is SO OOC! Especially on their best friends!!! Like, its ridiculous that the writers thought this was a good idea??? I just cant handle it.

I really really really hope that V and Jughead dont just forgive them willy nilly and make them work to earn their friendship back. i also hope this means that Veronica and Jughead get closer.

eta: finally watched

All the singing is TOO MUCH for me. I cant handle the musical episodes. Some of them have nice voices but this whole making everyone in the cast sing is NOT IT! And the dancing noooooooo please stop.

Mr. Honey was right in saying the musical wasnt appropriate. Sorry. I actually saw it in a theater and it as a lot lol.

My favorite musical number was the one at the sleepover I think.

I'm sorry but Barchie came out of nowhere. It baffles me that people seem to think they've had build up? HOW?! WHERE? Im confused. Throwin in some random scene from the pilot doesn't = build up lol. And the fact that they kissed after the others fought wth their significant others says a lot.

I watched this episode yesterday. I guess it was random singing at the beginning of this episode, which isn't how I would have began it, it "Random" could have been the title to Kevin's first song that he sang on it. It's the only song that I've heard with lyrics: "Random, random random" in them., but also didn't read the description of it clearly at first. Isn't "variety show" just another way to say "talent show? I was thinking that I don't recall at all there being something called a "variety show" happening here I went to high school. But guess this was different. Besides Archie & Betty making out which I'm not against happening, I do wonder who Jughead saw on tape comitt murder apparently & why someone taped it.
