After a few weeks off because of the Olympics, we’re back to the town with pep. In this episode of the quirky teen drama, the gang went on holiday, Cheryl had an emotional moment, and there was a lengthy advert for showrunner Greg Berlanti’s new film Love, Simon.
As ever, we’ve got a lot of questions after this week’s episode of Riverdale – is Betty in danger because of Chic? What is Hiram Lodge doing? Will Riverdale ever be the same again? Here’s everything we need to know about The Hills Have Eyes, the 14th episode of Riverdale’s second season.
At this point, these are mostly just exercises in snark. Which is fun, I guess.
Also, my gosh, wasn’t the Love, Simon advert in this one ridiculous? Don’t get me wrong, I am pretty pro Love, Simon – I’ve not seen it, but I enjoyed the book a lot, and it seems like a fun and important movie for all the obvious reasons. But, oh man, the product placement here was insane. I’m not sure if I’m affronted or impressed by the way they took it and made it pivotal to Cheryl’s character development.
Of course, this is also the one where they went to a cabin in the woods for a weird sex holiday, which apparently is going to be pivotal to the season 3 plot, so maybe the Love, Simon advert isn’t the most important thing. It’s an odd show, is Riverdale.
