Riverdale Season 2: Is Hal the Black Hood? And will he kill Sheriff Keller next?

We know now the Black Hood is going after the victims who previously escaped him, as well as those he perceives to be sinners. With Midge and Chic dead, that leaves a couple of obvious victims next – maybe Moose, or indeed Fred Andrews. 

But it feels more likely that he’ll target Sheriff Keller. 

He’ll find himself in the crosshairs because of his affair with Mayor McCoy, but from a narrative perspective, it makes sense: Keller is exactly the sort of prominent supporting character whose death would create emotional stakes, but not represent a massive change in the same way killing Archie’s dad would. 

Next week, then, Sheriff Keller should probably be worried about more than just his job.

Here’s my piece on this week’s Riverdale episode, which I’d love if people could share around a bit.

This particular article ponders whether Hal is the Black Hood, if Sheriff Keller is likely to be his next victim, and more. (Like, for example, why Cheryl and the River Vixens have a special funeral outfit. Actually, it’s less a question, because the reason is obvious – it is Extremely Extra, in a way that suits both Cheryl and Riverdale, so it makes perfect sense – and more of a celebration.)

And, yes, if you’re thinking that the above picture has very little to do with the above text, then… well, then you’d be correct. These things happen, you know how it is.

Riverdale Season 2: Five Questions we have after episode 7

riverdale season 2 tales from the darkside jughead cole sprouse tony todd james dewille dawn wilkinson

The latest episode of Riverdale was another entertaining offering from the subversive teen drama – but it also opened up a lot of questions. 

As Jughead is drawn deeper and deeper into Serpent activities, an affair between Sheriff Keller and Mayor McCoy is revealed, and the Black Hood swears vengeance, there are a lot of questions to ask – and a lot of answers we need to find. 

Here are five questions we need answering after the latest episode of Riverdale, Tales from the Darkside.

Each and every one of these is actually labelled “five questioned we need answering” over at Metro, because it took me the duration of the series – significantly over six months! – to realise that “five questions we have” is a better grammatical formation of what I was trying to say. I’m not sure what I was going for in the first place.

Something kinda, I guess, not threatening obviously, but direct and emphatic and a little “woah” while still being serious, you know? Hopefully you know, because then at least someone would.
