This week on Riverdale, there are fights galore, a number of snooping, and even some essential concessions. Let’s cowl the primary plots of the night:
Welcome to Riverdale, Katy Keene
It’s a really particular crossover episode this week, as Veronica heads to New York for her interview with Barnard. She will get to city early to do some buying at Lacy’s along with her buddy Katy Keene, and after a too-short buying montage, the babes catch up at a suspiciously empty bar. Katy reveals that her mother is admittedly sick, and whereas it’s a touching second between the 2 (no signal of Lucy Hale’s epic cry face, although), it principally serves to tee up Veronica’s reconciliation along with her mother and father. After Hermione reveals that Hiram has a neuromuscular dysfunction, Veronica tells her mother and father that she can be attending Barnard and needs them there when she strikes in throughout August — oh, and he or she’s altering her title again to Lodge, in what appears to be an olive department to her father. Does this imply the rum wars are over? Let’s hope so.
The Duel Is On
At least Mr. DuPont admits that this custom is arcane, however he proceeds: it’ll be fencing, a fistfight, and a chess match in case of a tie. Brett chooses Jonathan as his second, Jug chooses Donna. Brett wins the fencing match; Jughead wins the fistfight (HOW IS THIS HAPPENING ON SCHOOL GROUNDS). Before the tie-breaker chess match, Jughead’s classmates all (besides Donna) align with Brett, leading to a useless snake nailed on Jug’s wall, and Brett makes an attempt to lift the stakes and needs Jug to stroll away from the Baxter Bros. contract if he loses, and switch it over to Brett. Jug is love, lol no, plus you’re a horrible author. The chess match is interrupted (see under), and once they resume, Jughead throws the match. He says he’s executed enjoying this sport, and that he doesn’t wish to be a “Stonewall man” love Brett is. He leaves with Betty and Alice. How many extra months till commencement?
My Latest Murder Board
Since Betty and Alice are each suspended (and Betty can’t run the Blue & Gold anymore or go to senior promenade), they resolve to sort out Betty’s investigation of Mr. Chipping’s obvious suicide anew. Since we’re doing crossovers now, when will the Nancy Drew crossover occur, hmm? They speak to Mrs. Chipping, who says she doesn’t consider her husband was having an affair with Donna, and describes his odd conduct earlier than he died. She turns over a field of his belongings to the Cooper girls, and the invention of some Army pamphlets inside lead the duo to Moose. Moose reveals the Mr. Chipping had recruited him to Stonewall for soccer, then aggressively pushed him towards the Army, oh and Brett was additionally blackmailing Moose with a tape he’d secretly recorded of Moose and one other scholar having intercourse of their dorm room.
Aghast, Betty and Alice snoop round Brett’s room, roll their eyes by way of his denials when he catches them, after which break into the Quill & Skull basement in the course of the duel chess match. Betty finds a bunch of tapes and goes about eradicating the proof from the scene, which doesn’t appear love the right transfer, nevertheless it doesn’t matter as a result of Brett’s silent alarm will get them caught. Brett claims these tapes are simply the recordings of the Quill & Skull initiation confessions, and all appears settled…till Betty and Jughead watch Donna’s tape and uncover that her confession is about an affair with a distinct instructor, one who doesn’t seem to exist, and it’s word-for-word the identical as what she instructed Betty about Mr. Chipping. This leads Betty to posit that they need to be extra frightened about Donna than Brett.
The Return of Nick St. Clair
Remember that man? Well, he’s again, and he needs to throw a “we all got into Harvard” social gathering at The Maple Club for him and his buddies. Ugh. He slimes throughout Toni, and when Cheryl sees him within the institution, she runs away, upset. Later that evening, she tells Toni in regards to the evening Nick drugged and tried to assault her, and Toni reveals that one thing comparable occurred to her earlier than she moved to Riverdale. The couple sweetly comforts one another, and the subsequent evening, Toni invitations Nick into a personal room on the membership. The morning after, Nick wakes as much as a rumpled mattress and Kevin, Fangs, and Toni flash him the tickle video they made with him final evening. He’s outraged, and Toni shuts him down: he higher behave himself any further, and in addition by no means come again to Riverdale, in any other case she releases the video. Toni is hard as nails, and so I consider her when she says she’ll break Nick, although the logistics of how she’ll be certain that he behaves are a bit unclear. But regardless of, later that evening Kevin, Fangs, Cheryl, and Toni all watch the tickle video and toast to Toni and her revenge plot.
