Betty Gets Drawn Into the Black Hood's Web of Lies

Riverdale has not been kind to his characters in season 2. However this episode, entitled "When a Stranger Calls," takes matters to frightening new lows. Riverdale piles a lot of material into the episode and almost all of it is depressing. This isn't a bad thing, not in the slightest, because "When a Stranger Calls" manages to pull of the delicate balance of being very heavy and melodramatic but still having that tinge of believability to the soapy proceedings that puts sympathy for the characters at... more

Chapter Eighteen

Alice Cooper can finally say, "I told you so." Jughead has joined the dark side on Riverdale Season 2 Episode 5. The burger-loving, aspiring writer was the newest member to join the Southside Serpents. Sure, this is all part of a master plan, but he's a bad boy now. Leather jacket and all. But was it the right choice? As much as I hate saying this, Jughead made the smart move by joining the Southside Serpents. (I know! I'm hating myself right now.) No one in t... more



'Riverdale' Episode 2.6 Photos: It's Drag Race Time

It's a dangerous time to be in Riverdale. Jughead's allegience to the Serpents spirals out of control and sucks Archie in, while Betty continues to be harassed by the Black Hood and Cheryl deals with the aftermath of Nick's attack.  The official episode description from the CW says,"After a charge led by Mayor McCoy (guest star Robin Givens) threatens to further escalate tensions between the North and Southside, Jughead (Cole Sprouse), along with Archie (KJ Apa), tries to put a stop to a dangerous alliance being considered between the S... more

How Long Will the Bughead Break-Up Last on 'Riverdale'?

It didn't come as much of a surprise but the Riverdale episode "When a Stranger Calls" delivered a "twist" that many fans figured was coming. Bughead is no more, as Betty (through Archie) broke up with Jughead. It was all done in an effort to protect Jughead from the Black Hood, but it still tore Riverdale's "own Holden Caulfield" apart and drove him into the arms of new character Toni Topaz. It's not exactly a natu... more

Is Betty Really Talking to the Black Hood on 'Riverdale'?

The Riverdale episode "When a Stranger Calls" capitalized on the previous episode's cliffhanger by having Betty continue a relationship with the Black Hood, albeit over the telephone. Even though it was through just a disembodied voice, "When a Stranger Calls" was the biggest spotlight yet for Riverdale's new killer. Still, there's a very real chance that Betty wasn't speaking to the Black Hood at all but an imp... more
