Riverdale season 2: Five questions we have after episode 17

This week’s episode of Riverdale was another twisting and turning instalment of the quirky teen drama that gives us a lot to ponder.

We saw the Blossoms at each other’s’ throats, the Coopers’ crime come to light, and Archie seemingly enlisting his friends as mob enforcers – it’s an intense time to live in Riverdale.

Here’s my piece on the seventeenth episode of Riverdale season 2, The Noose Tightens, which was the last one for a couple of weeks.

It was a nice reprieve, to be honest – the weekly Riverdale article was becoming increasingly frustrating. I’m basically fond of the show, but it was going through a rough patch, and these “five questions we have after” articles are not the most mentally stimulating to write. (Which isn’t a knock on the format, incidentally; I think a big part of why I struggled with them is because I didn’t know how to write them well. Listicle type things are a skill unto themselves, I reckon.)

Anyway! Hope you enjoy this piece.

Riverdale Season 2: Where is Cheryl? Who is Chic’s true father?

Another exciting installment of Riverdale gave us some more twists and turns to ponder on this week. No doubt, the next few episodes will have a lot to deal with. 

Where is Cheryl? Who is Chic’s true father? Will Archie and Veronica see what Hiram is really up to? Things are getting increasingly complex for the residents of Riverdale, and they show no sign of relenting any time soon. Here are five questions we need answered after episode 16, Primary Colours.

Oh, this is an odd one. Obviously, because Riverdale is an America show, the episode is called Primary Colors – but I really can’t bring myself to call it anything but Primary Colours.

That’s not actually an especially fun fact, is it? Ah well. It can be difficult to write these litttle bits of commentary for each individual episode, especially since they blur together so much. Looking back, I can’t even remember who Chic’s real father turned out to be.

Anyway, this piece talks about Cheryl’s whereabouts after a mysterious cliffhanger, speculates about the truth behind Chic’s parents, and ponders whether or not Veronica actually understands any of what her family is doing. (It was very inconsistent, and one of the things that annoyed me most over the course of the season.)
