Because Archie’s father was almost murdered there, Pop’s Chock’lit Shoppe is on the verge of shutting down. It has been a staple of Riverdale for years, and so Betty and Veronica are determined to save it. In order to do this, they must convince Cheryl to lend them the Cheerleading Squad, and convince Josie and the Pussycats to perform.
Archie feels guilty for the death of Ms. Grundy, and he want to do something about this killer who is going around trying to eliminate citizens of Riverdale. He is so determined to be prepared for the next time the Black Hood strikes, that he buys a gun from one of the shadier students at his school, and tries to train himself in shooting it.
Veronica is still debating whether or not to trust her parents again, letting the past be the past, but by the end of the episode she seems to be on the side of trusting them more than questioning their every move.
Lastly, the episode ends on a cliffhanger of the Black Hood shooting Moose and Midge as they do drugs in their car in the woods.
This season is coming together quite nicely, and I cannot wait to see how far Archie will go before he completely snaps.
Overall Rating: 5/5
