Skeet Ulrich Explains Why He’s Leaving ‘Riverdale’ – 5 Ways The Series Can Explain FP Jones’ Exit

When Riverdale announced Skeet Ulrich’s exit in February following season 4, the fandom began to worry.

Ulrich plays FP Jones, the father of Jughead Jones, a former Serpent gang leader who has managed to turn his life around, become a Sheriff, and snag the love of his life.

He’s become an instrumental part of the series as he helps Jughead and his friends navigate normalcy in the fictitious murderous town.

In an Instagram Live in May, Ulrich elaborated about his departure explaining that he was “bored creatively.”

“I’m leaving Riverdale because I got bored creatively,” Ulrich said. “How’s that? The most honest answer.” Brutal. Honest. It’s what we’ve come to expect from FP.

At first, fans thought FP’s exit might confirm Jughead’s death, however, now that we know Jughead survived staged “perfect murder” with his father’s help, it’s unclear how the show will tackle the departure.

We have some thoughts about how Riverdale can explain the exit of one of the show’s finest dads:

1.Kids go off to college

In the “most obvious” lane, the kids go off to college and the parents are no longer a focal point of the series. Jughead and his buds are currently in their senior year and will be going to college in just a few months, pending they actually graduate.

Expectedly, the role of the parents will dwindle as the teens leave town and begin their “adult” lives. If this is the avenue they take, Riverdale might not even have to explain FP’s exit because he’ll simply still be there just not as frequently as when Jughead was living at home. And if Ulrich agrees to some guest appearances, they can very easily break him out of his contract while keeping the character and his relationship with his son in tact.

It’s now been confirmed that season 5 will have a time jump when it returns in 2021, and thus, FP existing off-screen seems like the most obvious avenue for the series to pursue.

“Season five of Riverdale will begin with our characters’ final days as students at Riverdale High. From an epic Senior Prom to a bittersweet Graduation, there are a lot of emotional moments and goodbyes yet to come—with some couples breaking up, as everyone goes their separate ways to college—or elsewhere,” The CW said in a release. “Then, we will redock with our gang as young adults, all returning to Riverdale to escape their troubled pasts. And life—and romance—will only be more complicated now that they’re in their twenties…”

2. New Job Opportunity

After Jughead’s death, FP spiraled slightly (despite being in on the whole thing) and it led to a confrontation with Hiram Lodge. Hiram suggested that maybe FP was too close to the case, and FP straight up resigned as Sheriff.

With nothing tying him to this town any longer and Jughead gearing up to fly the coop, FP might look for job opportunities in other towns. FP deserves happiness and a fulfilling career, so we’re on board with this 100%.

3. Living It Up with Alice

Much like the teens of Riverdale, the parents have lived a life that could only be described as small-town hell. They were involved with the Gargoyle King since they were teenagers, Alice’s husband turned out to be the Black Hood, they’ve endured so much mayhem and suffering, and the one ray of hope has been that Alice and FP have found their way back to each other and allowed their romance to blossom.

If anyone deserves a vacation, possibly even a permanent vacation, it’s these two love-birds. They need to leave Riverdale and never look back as they ride off into the sunset together.

4. Fed Up with Riverdale

For all the reasons listed above, FP might just be done putting up with Riverdale’s insanity. It wouldn’t be surprising if he was just fed up and done with Riverdale and using this opportunity now that his son is off to college and he doesn’t have a job to pursue a better life somewhere, anywhere else.

5. Death

I hate to say this, but if Ulrich never wants to return to Riverdale, there is a permanent solution. It would break fans’ hearts, but they don’t call it the murder capital of the world for nothing, right?

Turning it over to you, Cravers.

How do you think that Riverdale will write off FP? Will his exit be permanent?

Big Sky Review – Curse of the Town (1×14)

Published

on

Big Sky Review Nice Animals Season 1 Episode 14

Things in Lochsa are getting messier and messier by the minute. 

Jenny Hoyt wanted to know why everyone was scared of the Kleinsasser’s, and when Rand drove the truck into the motel, I think she finally got her answer. 

Not only does the family have blood on their hands — including Blake’s — but the body count is rising by the minute. 

And the worst part is that they feel absolutely no remorse about it. 

It’s not even what they’ve done, it’s how unhinged they all are. 

They take toxic to the next level. 

Rand’s out here talking about opening some kind of torture haunted maze because he enjoys seeing people be afraid, Cheyenne’s out here threatening to expose her brother’s for what they’ve done, and Margaret flat out said she will kill her husband and then sealed it with a kiss. 

But that didn’t stop Jennny and Cassie! 

Jenny escaped from the motel attack unscathed, but the same can’t be said for Angela. She tried to help and ended up dead, which seems to be the trend. 

You’d think Jenny would take the hint and stop asking other people to put their lives at risk, but not a chance! Instead, she tries to convince Gil, Rosie’s father, to tell her what the K family has been up to all these years and why they have so much pull. 

By speaking out and taking Jenny and Cassie to the back pasture where they unearthed the poisoned land (along with more corpses), he sealed his fate. 

It’s kind of a lame reveal, to be honest. Yes, it’s terrible that they’ve been dumping chemicals and poisoning the land, but this is their big bad secret?

And is that what Cole Danvers found out and died for?

Big Sky Review Nice Animals Season 1 Episode 14

Jenny should take a cue from Cole’s demise. What’s the point of learning the truth if you don’t live long enough to report it?

She’s in way over her head here, especially now that they’ve been spotted snooping around the land. 

As someone who has been watching Big Sky from the beginning, it’s clear the series isn’t afraid to take risks. 

However, I’m less interested in the mystery of the Kleinsasser’s and more concerned about how Arthur (fka Ronald) is trying to navigate his new life while taming his urges.

I mean, he didn’t do such a hot job considering he killed Scarlet’s sister, Mary, which exposed him.

I’m not saying Ronald deserves a fresh start, but since he’s already started a new life, he could’ve just lived peacefully without raising any flags. 

Instead, he’s on the run again, but this time, he’s taking Scarlett and her daughter, Phoebe, for a ride. 

It probably wasn’t the smartest idea to buy a truck again since that’s exactly what Cassie and Lindor are going to be looking for. 

This guy just can’t help himself. He’s his own worst enemy. 

And truly, I still can’t figure out how Ronald managed to escape with Mary’s body when Cassie and Lindor were inside. Sure, they went into the basement, but that’s a close call. 

Then again, Ronald is used to close calls. He had several with Scarlett and Phoebe throughout the episode when he saw blood pouring from Mary’s body while they were sleeping right next to it (ew!), when he was almost caught moving her bagged up body through the woods, and finally, when Phoebe saw him digging up a hole in the middle of the night. 

I’m genuinely concerned for Phoebe. Ronald has never seriously injured a child (though he’s come close), but we know he’ll do anything to protect himself and his secret. 

His little freaky spiel about nice animals being taken out by violent animals proves that he’s willing to do anything to protect himself because that’s life! He really tried to use the analogy to justify his actions. What a creep. 

And while you might think Scarlett and Phoebe are safe because he “loves” them, that didn’t work out so great for his mother. 

Plus, he already took out the taser when they almost caught him moving Mary’s body. 

However, if he wants to preserve what he has with Scarlett, he can’t kill Phoebe as it would put too much heat on him.

Maybe he’ll tell her that he found a violent animal and killed it to protect them?

We know Ronald’s all too good at spinning a lie when necessary. 

There’s also the mystery of Steve Lahren’s death. They found Phoebe’s father stuffed in a freezer in Mary’s basement, which likely means she’s the one that killed him with an ice pick. 

But Scarlett was also confident that Steve was never coming back to bother her and her daughter. Did she have something to do with his death? Does she know what her sister did?

And if so, would she be fine with Ronald’s, er, pastime?

One thing’s certain: both Ronald and the K family are the “curse” of Montana. 

 Other Thoughts

  • Sheriff Wagy seemed to want to cut ties with the K family, but then he reported Jenny, Cassie and Gil sniffing around the property. Come on, man. I guess it’s everyone for themselves here. 
  • Cheyenne is a mystery, but Britt Robertson is putting in the work to make this character multi-dimensional. She’s one of the highlights of the season. 
  • Can we get some backstory on Denise?

Big Sky has been renewed for a second season with a brand new showrunner. Since the show has taken on more of a anthology vibe with each season focusing on a new mystery, it’s safe to say we’ll wrap up all the drama with the K family by the mid season finale. 

Will the hunt for Arthur remain ongoing and bleed into season 2?

My only hope for the second season is that there’s less mysteries to focus on. Between the drama with the K family and Arthur, adding in the mystery of what happened to Cole and Steve is too much.

13 Biggest Moments from Season 1 of ‘The Irregulars’

13 Biggest Moments from Season 1 of 'The Irregulars'

A darkness has come to London on Netflix’s new British crime drama and Sherlock Holmes spinoff The Irregulars. 

With a ting of supernatural sprinkled into every case, the series embraces a darker, gorier, and bloodier tone than any previous iteration of the Holmes catalog. Heed my warning when I say the show isn’t for those for the faint of heart… or stomach.

But once you get past that, the series, set in Victorian London, draws you in with a mystery that even Sherlock himself struggles to crack. 

There are plenty of scary action scenes that will scare the bejesus out of you, but they aren’t there for the sake of cheap thrills. Every moment is meticulously included in the story to propel the plot forward, develop the characters, and lead to some pretty unexpected twists. 

The Baker Street Irregulars step into danger to save London from eternal doom, all while trying to figure out whether or not Dr. Watson – who uses their poverty to force them to work for him – is a good or bad guy.

Let’s break down some of the biggest reveals and most jaw-dropping moments of the first season:

 

Jessie’s an Ipsissimus

In The Irregulars Season 1 Episode 3, as the Baker Street Irregulars spend the night at a “murder house” at the behest of Mycroft Holmes to figure out who killed the Inner Circle’s magus (leader), they learn that Jessie, who has been having nightmares that initially made her think she was going crazy like her mother, Alice, is an Ipsissimus. An Ipsissimus is what’s described as a powerful and true psychic, one who can change the destiny of the world. In the episode, Patricia attempts to steal Jessie’s powers with a spell of infatuation but is unsuccessful thanks to Jessie’s committed friends. 

Jessie has the ability to penetrate the minds of the villains and monsters they are investigating. During her dreams, where she’s terrorized by a Bird Man later revealed to be Plague doctors, she gets pulled into a safe space in Louisiana by a God-like man who not only gives her advice about her powers but informs her that a Rip has opened up in London that’s allowing supernatural evils to manifest and take hold.

Bea Kills the evil Tooth Fairy

This didn’t seem to have as big of an impact on Bea as you’d think killing (even someone possessed by demons) should have. However, it was a justified kill because if she hadn’t done it, the Tooth Fairy would’ve killed Billy. In order to save him, Bea had no other option. While it didn’t affect her moving forward, it was a clear indication of their grim new reality.

 

The RIP

The Louisana man describes the Rip as the catalyst for the manifestations and deep disturbances. The Rip essentially has opened the door to the other side, and if the spirit world takes hold, London (and the rest of the world) would cease to exist. 

The Baker Street Irregulars make it their mission to find the Rip and close it before it fully engulfs London in chaos and destruction, which gets worse and worse as the Rip grows and expands. By The Irregulars Season 1 Episode 8, monsters have taken over the streets of London and no one is safe, not even the nuns at the church. Why does it always have to be the nuns?!

 

Sherlock Holmes Is an Addict

While the Sherlock Holmes you know may occasionally use addictive drugs to stimulate case-solving, The Irregulars’ Holmes has an addiction that has spiraled out of control and taken hold of his life. 

The horrors of his past, the mistakes he’s made, the darkness he’s seen, and the loss he’s endured have all contributed to his self-destruction. He’s defeated and lost, so he finds purpose in his addiction.

Love Triangle Between Billy, Leo, and Bea

No show is complete without a love triangle. Very early on in the series, it’s clear that Billy is into Bea. They’ve been friends since they were young and in the workhouse together, but he’s never made his feelings known. He becomes jealous when Bea develops an interest in newcomer Leo, which leads to plenty of tension between the two men both vying for Bea’s heart. Eventually, Leo wins the battle, and while it pains Billy to see Bea with another man, he doesn’t seem to bring up his suppressed feelings again… for now. 

 

Leo’s Secret Identity and Disease

Leo is Prince of England (think old-school Prince William), but he doesn’t reveal that to the Baker Street Crew upon meeting them. Leo feigns poverty because, for most of his life, he has been trapped in the palace due to his life-threatening disease. Leo suffers from hemophilia, a medical condition that allows for easy blood clotting causing the sufferer to bleed severely from the slightest injury. He may have the life, but he has no life. 

When he meets Bea and her friends, he finally feels as though he fits in somewhere. He enjoys the adventures and quickly puts his book smarts to use by becoming the “brains” of the operation. But he continues to keep his identity a secret because he fears that if they knew the truth, they’d resent him and think differently of him.

Bea Finds Out Who Leo Really Is

Of course, Bea eventually finds out about Leo’s identity. It was inevitable. Leo is betrayed by his closest confidant, his palace aide, Daimier, who becomes desperate when his attempts to lure Leo back to the palace before his mother realizes that he’s missing are unsuccessful.

When Leo stands his ground and refuses to return, Daimier confronts Bea and tells her the truth knowing that she’ll turn her back on the prince. Bea already has a hard time trusting people because of her past experiences, so she doesn’t take well to Leo’s lying.

However, after Billy gets arrested for murder, Spike reaches out to Leo for help. In the final episode, Leo informs Bea that he must leave on a trip to Europe with a potential bride Helena as it’s his duty as Prince of England to marry. When Bea tells him he doesn’t have to do anything he doesn’t want to do, he admits that he promised his mother in exchange for the palace’s help in freeing Billy. He sacrificed his ultimate love to help their mutual friend, and that not only redeems Leo in Bea’s eyes, but it also tells you everything you need to know about the kind of person Leo is. 

With Leo out of the picture, will Billy and Bea pursue their feelings for each other if season 2 becomes a reality?

 

Billy Finds Out the Truth About His Parents

Billy, like most everyone on Baker Street, is haunted by his past, particularly his time spent in the workhouses. He confronts his past when he spots Vic, the master at the workhouse. Vic was responsible for beating up a young Bea, and Billy wants revenge as he feels guilty that he wasn’t able to do anything to help her when they were younger.

He breaks into Vic’s house, who remembers Billy and is more than happy to continue kicking him while he’s down by informing him that everything he’s ever believed about his parents was a lie. His father didn’t die in the war — they never knew who his father was because his mother was a prostitute. 

When Billy runs into Vic a second time on the street, the altercation turns violent when Billy is provoked into throwing a punch that accidentally kills him. Poor Billy doesn’t know his own strength. In those days, the law doesn’t err on Billy’s side, so instead of the punch being considered self-defense, Billy is thrown into jail for murder. 

As previously mentioned, Leo helps so that Billy is able to freely walk to gloomy streets of London again.

Holmes’ Connection to Alice

Initially, the Baker Street crew doesn’t trust Dr. Watson one bit. And for good reason – he leverages their poverty against them to make them work his cases. He’s not upfront about anything, including the fact that he knew Bea and Jessie’s mother, Alice. 

Bea pursues the truth about her mother, who she knows was gifted like Jessie, and eventually pieces it all together: Alice and Sherlock were in love. She successfully finds him passed out on her mother’s grave and forces him to sober up as she presses for answers. Eventually, it’s revealed that he’s Jessie’s biological father, but once Alice died, he couldn’t find it in himself to take care of the girls, which is why they ended up in workhouses. 

 

Watson opened the first RIP

In a twisted case, the Baker Street gang pursues a woman named Edith who is stealing body parts from the infirmary to revive her late husband, Sammy. In her desperate attempt to bring him back to life, she’s basically creating a monster. While paying her a visit, they find Dr. Watson tied up in a room and learn that she came to him for help 15 years ago and showed him a relic that she thought could save her husband.

Watson took the relic to “exam it” and promised to return it, but he never did. Instead, he tried to use it to connect to the other side to impress Holmes, which is when he accidentally opened the first Rip. He never told Holmes the truth, but when they finally went to close the Rip, Alice was sucked in. Instead of saving her, Watson saved Holmes because he’s always loved him.

The Linen Man Is Bad News

Whenever Jessie has the nightmares that take her to catacombs where she sees dead people and Plague doctors, she gets pulled out to a nice and serene place in Louisana by a man who is referred to as The Linen Man. Throughout her journey, he provides her with advice on how to control being an Ipssissimus and explains how the Rip works. At one point, he reveals that he’s on a ship making his way to London to help her. 

Of course, if you’re an avid TV watcher, you’re likely skeptical of any stranger who offers to help without getting anything in return. 

Upon his arrival in London, the Linen Man reveals that Jessie isn’t strong enough to do what needs to be done and admits that he’s not trying to close the rip, he wants to harness his powers and become godlike. 

Moral of the story: never trust anyone who can get into your mind and use your fears against you.

 

Who Is Behind the Second Rip?

After confronting the Linen Man and killing him, Jessie realizes that deep down she’s always known who opened the second Rip: her mother, Alice. This explains why Sherlock left with the Linen Man and helped him find the location of the Rip. 

It’s a heartfelt reunion once Alice emerges from the Rip, but it’s short-lived as Jessie realizes that Alice can’t stay in their world. When Bea and Sherlock object, Jessie helps Bea remember that they had some pretty good times together. If they let their mother stay, London will be overrun by monsters and cease to exist as it’ll simply turn into a kind of purgatory. 

Bea eventually sees the light and agrees with Jessie that Alice has to go back.

Sherlock’s Ultimate Sacrifice 

As Jessie began to close the rip, Alice was sucked back into the other side. Sherlock, who was less of a man without Alice, decided to jump in after her. Watson grabbed him to keep him from getting sucked in, but as the Rip began pulling in Jessie, Bea begged Watson to do the right thing. Despite his love for Sherlock, he let him go and helped save Jessie.

 

 A Breakdown of The Mysteries

An Unkindness” – Ravens are kidnapping babies because a man used a spirit board to try to bring back his late child, who passed away with his wife after giving birth. 

The Ghosts of 221B”– In this retelling of the tooth fairy, you don’t want to lose your baby teeth. Children’s teeth are getting pulled out by an evil Tooth Fairy who wants revenge on the Duke of Winchester as she blames him for her father’s suicide. 

“Ipsissimus” – We meet Mycroft Holmes, Sherlock’s brother, a member of the Golden Dawn. When the magus of the cult-like underground society is murdered, he asks the Beaker Street kids to investigate. When they arrive at the “murder house,” they learn that Patricia is using dark magic to keep them all trapped in order to get her hands on Jessie and steal her psychic abilities and eventually, channel the power of the Rip. This is the last we see of Mycroft, which is a bummer because he could’ve contributed a lot more to the storyline. 

Both the Needle and the Knife” – This episode may be one of the more disturbing ones as the opening scene finds a man removing a face. Jessie is asked to assist Scotland Yard Inspector Lestrade in the case, and though he benefits from her abilities, he’s not a fan of the supernatural and deems her an abomination. Jessie’s powers lead them to a woman named Clara, who was taken advantage of by the men that she’s now killing. After one of the men gives her syphilis, thus taking away her ability to have kids, she gets revenge by eventually stealing the pub owner’s face and making his family her own. Jessie confronts her and when Clara promises to never kill again, she lets her go. 

“Students of the Unhallowed Arts” – We finally meet Sherlock, or, well, a shell of what used to be Sherlock. The episode serves as an informational one that allows the rest of the season to unfold. Sherlock tells Bea how the original Irregulars — Alice, Sherlock, and Watson — came to be, how their story unfolded, and how it ended tragically. Sherlock also admits that he couldn’t crack the Case of the Collector, a person who was stealing body parts. 

“Hieracium Snowdoniense” – Nope, not a spell but a plant that the plant lady was using to steal limbs to resuscitate her barely-alive husband. The monstrosity she created 15-years later blames her for preventing him from finding peace, so he immediately kills her and then himself. The Baker Street kids also learn all about Watson’s involvement in the first Rip as Jessie learns the truth about the Linen Man.

“The Ecstacy of Death” – Chaos has taken over London as the Rip continues to widen. The Linen Man reveals more of his plans to Jessie including marrying her off to his son to create more Ipssissimus’. The Baker Street crew, along with Sherlock and Watson plan to trap the Linen Man to get the location of the Rip, but he manages to convince Sherlock to free him and join him.

“The Ecstacy of Life” – The conclusion of season 1 brings back and kills Alice in one fell swoop. It also marks the end of Sherlock, which is kind of a bummer. Both Watson and Bea suffer the loss of a loved one, which finally gives them common ground. While the darkness that took hold of London is gone, moving on is going to be the hardest part. 

 

While it’s unclear if The Irregulars will see a second season, or what that second season would entail, there’s definitely a marketplace for mystery gore set in the 19th century.
