Riverdale – American Dreams (3×15)

Riverdale/ The CW

Published

Be still my heart. There was a total of three breakups on tonight’s episode.

We’ll start with the most devastating one: Choni.

Cheryl and Toni’s relationship was intense and fueled by passion from start to possible finish. Or at least I think it’s finished.

Things between the ladies have been tense ever since Toni assumed control of the Pretty Poisons.

Cheryl tried to smooth it over by doing what she does best, lavishing her loved one with gifts, or a spring break trip to Quebec to be more exact, but Toni once again chose her girl gang over her girlfriend.

Cheryl has been making an effort to patch up the weirdness between them, but when she saw Toni singing “Call Your Girlfriend” with Ronnie at the speakeasy — don’t you think it would have been better if they sang “Break Up With Your Girlfriend, Cause I’m Bored”? — she took extreme measures.

Toni caught onto her girlfriend’s attempt at getting her attention and fell for it.

But the making up seemed like the last hurrah before breaking up. After getting down, dirty and blindfolded on the pool table, Cheryl and Toni faced the issue at the core of their relationship: things were moving too fast.

Toni admitted that maybe they decided to move in together too quickly, and Cheryl agreed that Toni moving out may be the best solution.

That definitely seems like a break up to me.

I’m not surprised Toni is feeling like she doesn’t have her own space at Thistlehouse.

Cheryl is a very domineering person and though she doesn’t realize it, it’s very easy for someone to get gobbled up in her world. Almost instantaneously, the two became inseparable and almost meshed into one person.

At times, it was almost unhealthy which is why it became so toxic so quickly.

Don’t get me wrong, I love Choni, but I do think time apart will do them both some good.

Cheryl then funneled all her rage and frustration into the upcoming school musical.

Despite The Farm’s insistence that they do Godspeed, Cheryl was feeling Heather’s more, not to mention she was already playing croquet.

Considering how confrontational Kevin was with Betty on last week’s Riverdale, it was shocking to see him get bulldozed by Cheryl again.

I thought The Farm ran things around here, but it just goes to show how powerful Cheryl’s reach really is.

Up next in the breakup department: Ronnie and Reggie.

Reggie wanted his efforts at La Bonne Nuit recognized which is fair, but it also seems like it came out of left field.

I’ll agree that he’s sacrificed a lot for Ronnie and her business, but I don’t think she’s ever treated him unfairly or been ungrateful for his loyalty.

Wanting to be cut in as a business partner is a tall ask. He should have been content with simply getting way more than minimum wage because hello, you’re a high school student who didn’t have much going for him.

Also, didn’t it seem like Reggie was getting a thrill out of working alongside Ronnie?

She may have come off as the ultimate B, but I’m all here for a woman who isn’t interested in sharing a piece of her pie with a man just because his ego has been bruised slightly.

Reggie proved that he doesn’t have the savviness to be an equal partner when he attempted to steal his car back from Gladys.

Bruh, this is a small town. I’m pretty sure she would have figured it out at some point but alas, he was caught red-handed.

His little stunt only intensified the tension between Ronnie and Gladys.

In the end, Ronnie got Reggie his car back but cut ties with him professionally and personally.

“We don’t owe each other anything.” Boss move.

I really hope that car was worth it, Reggie.

And the third couple to go down the train was FP and Alice.

This one really stung because man, FP and Alice were the high school sweetheart who finally had their moment.

Alice’s mystery home buyer turned out to be Gladys Jones, who was trying to right her wrongs with the family.

Her approach was rather aggressive; she didn’t ease into the idea of having them all move in together and getting back together with FP, she just full on committed to it.

Jughead was weary, and he had every right to be because a woman who ditched her family and then came back pretending like nothing ever happened, should never be trusted.

FP’s guard wasn’t as high up though partly because he was feeling so blessed on his 50th (!) birthday.

Gladys is a mastermind. She knew the right moment to move back into FP’s life was when he was feeling sentimental.

Seeing his family back together and finally on the right side of town made FP break things off with Alice who was hurt by his decision.

“That’s the mother of my child,” FP told her as if that had anything to do with being a good and necessary parent.

Truthfully, I’m a little disappointed with FP for having his blinders on and being so trustworthy. He, of all people, should know his wife the best.

My gut tells me it won’t be long before Alice returns to the fold because he’ll figure out Glady’s true motives soon enough.

Jughead can’t keep them a secret from his dad forever. He may have played it cool during his touching (I cried) birthday speech, but their relationship is too close for Jughead to keep this from his pops.

It was unfair of Gladys to put Jughead in such a predicament. This only proves that she doesn’t care about her son nearly as much as she’s letting on.

It’s especially upsetting to watch because having his family back together is all Jughead has ever wanted though this isn’t really what he had in mind.

How can a mother make her son feel responsible for his father’s potential breakdown? If she hadn’t gotten involved in shady things after he’d finally righted his wrongs they wouldn’t be in this mess.

Jughead believes he can save his sister, protect his father and run his mother out of town all at once, but he’s really underestimating his mother’s grip on Jelly Bean. As we’ve seen, she’s her mother’s daughter and in on this whole plan.

I also worry what happen to Alice now that she’s lost possibly the only link to her sanity. Losing FP will likely cause her to get even deeper with The Farm, and we know nothing good can come of it.

The best part of FP’s 50th birthday party was Fred Andrews showing up to give him a warm hug and welcome him to the neighborhood.

But hearing Luke Perry say “as I live and breathe” just didn’t sit right on the day of his alleged funeral.

Somebody should have cut that moment because it was just too soon.

Jughead wasn’t just dealing with his mother becoming the new Fizzle Rocks kingpin and his father’s celebration, he and Betty also teamed up to help Archie outsmart the Gryphons and Gargoyle’s players with the quest to ‘Kill the Red Paladin.’

Surprisingly, we got our first ever confession from Hiram Lodge who admitted to Archie that he was the one who orchestrated the attack on him and printed dozen’s of cards that marked him for death.

Archie was way calmer than I would have been in that situation.

Hiram’s confession sort of indirectly answered the “who is the Gargoyle King” mystery, if anyone even still cares about that.

This nerdy game’s purpose has been kind of muddled in all the mysterious narratives plaguing Riverdale.

Jughead and Betty drew in those who wanted to kill him by ammending the quest and using Archie’s boxing triumphs to his advantage.

Archie’s no stranger to messing up that pretty face of his so he took the hits like a man and came out the reigning champ.

Now, can we please put this Red Paladin storyline to rest once and for all?

Archie and Hiram’s truce remained in tact and as an apology, Hiram gifted the hole-in-the-wall boxing ring to him.

He specified the gift was “no strings attached,” but when has that ever been the case with Hiram?

Archie’s never going to shake him!

What did you think of tonight’s Riverdale episode, Cravers? Are you excited for another musical installment? Do you think anything can top the previous one?

Will Betty move in with Jughead? Will FP find out the truth about Gladys?

Riverdale Review – What Really Happened to Jughead Jones? (4×14)

Published

Riverdale How to Get Away with Murder Review

We need to figure out what happened to Jughead Jones.

While Riverdale may have painted a fuller picture on this week’s episode, it still doesn’t exactly reveal who struck the “fatal” blow nor does it explain any part of, what we can only assume, was Jughead’s intricate plan for find out the truth and taking the Stonie’s down once and for all.

And it most definitely doesn’t explain why he’s still narrating his own story unless the revelation is that it hinges on the theory that this is all Jughead’s Baxter Brother’s novel playing out.

But, as Jughead said, the moment we’ve been waiting for finally happened as the series caught up with all those flash-forward teases that kept us in the dark and up at night throughout much of Riverdale Season 4.

While the TV rule is that you never believe someone is dead until you see a body, Riverdale crossed that out and updated it so now, going forward, you never believe anyone is dead even if you see a body. Death is not final on television — there’s always a loophole.

The episode, aptly titled “How to Get Away with Murder,” followed Betty, Veronica, and Archie as they did just that.

It would have been better fitted it said “Try to Get Away with Murder” because they tried so hard.

The episode picked up with the trio (poorly) getting rid of any evidence, including Jughead’s beloved beanie, and making their way home in nothing but undergarments.

Narrator Jughead was right — they should have gotten their stories straight. But you have to give it to them for making up some pretty realistic and sensible excuses on the spot.

Archie told his mom he went skinny dipping and the Stonie’s stole their clothes, Betty claimed to have spilled red wine, and Veronica was involved in a scathing match of strip poker.

From there, they were on the defense and playing catch-up as the Stonie’s were always one step ahead of them.

Since they could anticipate their every move, it was absolutely impossible for Betty, Archie, and Veronica to not dig themselves into a bigger hole.

They looked guilty and all the signs pointed to ponytail killing her boyfriend, so Betty decided to own it.

When Britney Spears said, “you say I’m crazy, I got you crazy,” Betty embodied it.

How much longer could she go on pretending that Jughead wasn’t dead and allowing someone else to control the narrative and dictate her every move? Eventually, the truth, or the fabricated truth, was going to come out.

So, Betty, Archie, and Veronica planned a search party, led F.P. Jones to Jughead’s body, and identified the body at the morgue, just like we saw in previous flash-forwards.

It was a bold move on their part that Donna didn’t anticipate, and they succeeded in throwing her off the game.

Betty was no longer afraid of getting accused of Jughead’s death if she could bring Donna down with her.

This episode also cemented the fact that Donna was the true villain and not Brett.

Jughead was the only person that Betty ever cared about, and she’d do anything to take down his enemies, avenge his death, and make them pay.

But you can’t help but wonder how it’s going to pan out for her.

As it stands, despite Betty knowing the truth, the case is stacked heavily against her. She moved the body, lied about the murder, and destroyed evidence aka the murder weapon. Not to mention, she had no solid proof connecting Donna or the Stonies to the murder.

Betty also made several missteps. Normally, I’d say that’s normal for someone who never attempted to get away with murder, but these were pretty terrible for someone as cunning as Betty.

For starters, how did she not realize she had Jughead’s phone? Even if someone at Stonewall Prep slipped it into her jacket, she should have realized it.

Secondly, what’s with asking Jelly Bean for fake blood? It could very easily connect back to her if F.P. realizes the rock was covered in fake blood while she knew about the evidence.

And lastly, looping in Charles was her worst decision of all, though, it’s not her fault because she’s unaware that Charles is working against her and with Chic. For all we know, he could be conspiring with the Stonie’s, which is why they were always ahead of her and onto her plan.

Betty shouldn’t have brought anyone into this that she couldn’t trust with her whole life.

But for a girl who just lost her boyfriend, she was surprisingly composed. Sans a few breakdowns, Betty was always on top of it and working a new plan.

While it didn’t seem like Betty knew anything of Jughead’s original plan, it wouldn’t be the craziest thing if he somehow left her some clues or filled her in before that final confrontation with Donna.

It was badass as Betty channeled this fierce energy while wearing Jughead’s coat that seemed to shake Donna to her core.

What changed?

I don’t know how Jughead pulled this off, especially since we saw his body, but I just don’t think he’s dead.

I’m also glad Betty was drugged with a powder known as Devil’s Breath that caused her blackout and not actually triggered by some magic word. Evelyn’s power was always manipulative, and she’s good at convincing people that she’s capable of doing the impossible.

The revelation that it wasn’t more than a drug makes her less threatening.

There’s always the possibility that Jughead clued in Archie on his plan, so this whole time, Archie’s been steering the ship without revealing too much.

At least, that’s what I think he was confessing to his mother, but I could be wrong and he might just be telling the truth because he knows he’s going to need her legal advice.

Thank god for Mary right now, right?

Also, Mary revealed her relationship with a Navy Commander, which came out of the blue and was ill-fitting with an already storyline heavy episode.

Veronica wasn’t just dealing with the murder of her friend, she was also at odds with her family after Hiram wanted her to sign a will without coming clean to her about his disease.

Veronica and Hiram have been at each other’s throats for so long that a conversation where they both admitted to loving each other was strange.

Riverdale is a strange place.

However, I can’t help but think that Hiram is using his daughter’s love for him and her emotions as a weakness to get what he wants.

It would be his lowest point if he was manipulating her with some sob story about his illness.

And what is Hermosa’s deal? Veronica agreed to a truce, so let it be, girl. Is she the one who got Veronica put on hold at Barnard?

Other Thoughts

  • This may be a stretch, but Jughead loves to eat and he made a “you have to have the stomach for it” reference when talking about murder.
  • If I never have to hear the name Evelyn Evernever again, I’ll be okay.
  • Do they not have anything better to do with Kevin than to bring him into one scene where he crashes a convo between the trio?
  • Anyone else digging that Archie and Betty are working much closer together?
  • Why did F.P. immediately turn on Betty when he found the phone? Emotions are running high, but wouldn’t you think he’d approach the situation differently as he knows how deep Betty and Jughead’s love is?

What did you think of the episode?

Do you think Jughead is alive? Did you pick up on any clues?

What’s Betty’s plan? Is Hiram playing Veronica?

Does This Major Character Exit Confirm Jughead’s Death on ‘Riverdale’ Season 4?

Published

Does Skeet Ulrich's exit from Riverdale confirm Jughead's death?

Over the weekend, Riverdale fans were hit with some devastating news — not one, but two cast members were leaving the show.

Skeet Ulrich, who plays Jughead’s (Cole Sprouse) father, F.P. Jones, in the series, announced is departure following The CW’s fourth season.

In a statement to Deadline, Ulrich wrote: “I’m incredibly grateful for the friendships I’ve made on Riverdale, and I will miss seeing everyone on a daily basis.” He added, “I’m proud to have been part of such a talented group of people, in front of the camera and behind. But I’ve decided that it’s time for me to move on to explore other creative opportunities.”

The former Scream actor also addressed the exit on his social media writing, “I can’t even begin to thank you all for the unwavering support and love!! It is remarkable and deeply appreciated. I may be leaving Riverdale but my experience over the last four years will never leave my heart. A very special thanks to @writerras for giving me this opportunity ❤️”

And if losing one parental figure in a town where they’re already scarce isn’t bad enough, Marisol Nichols, who plays Veronica Lodge’s (Camila Mendes) mother, Hermione Lodge, in the series, also announced her departure.

She shared similar sentiments on Instagram writing, “I am incredible grateful for my time on Riverdale, my second family. These are friendships that go beyond set life. Portraying Hermione Lodge was a joy, and working with this cast was an honor, truly.
The best part has been all of you. Without your enthusiastic embracing of our show and these characters we wouldn’t be here. Thank you for the opportunity to entertain you all,” alongside a poster from the most recent season.

It’s unclear if either will reprise their roles in guest appearances, but you have to wonder how the series will explain their departures.

Producer and writer Roberto Aguirre posted a photo of Ulrich’s character Jones and assured fans that “All will be revealed before this season of #Riverdale ends,” which is slightly worrisome considering where the series left off with Jughead’s storyline. 

On Riverdale Season 4 Episode 13, Betty seemingly killed Jughead by hitting him over the head with a rock after being triggered by a “magic word” given to Donna by The Farm’s incarcerated Evelyn Evernever.

Fans immediately began looking for clues to discredit what was being presented on the screen because Jughead can’t really be dead, can he?

Riverdale is known for playing tricks on the audience and showing a storyline that doesn’t reflect what’s actually happening, so fans believe that Jughead’s death is either a fake-out or part of his long-term plan to take down Stonewall Prep, Brett, Donna, and the rest of them.

And truthfully, there are a lot of clues suggesting that’s the case despite the flas-forward scenes that show F.P. looking for Jughead in the forest (with presumed killer Betty), F.P. identifying Jughead’s body with Betty, and later, F.P. arresting Betty, Veronica, and Archie for Jughead’s murder.

Fans were content believing that the scenes were just part of  Jughead’s “perfect murder” novel… until now.

Riverdale Review – Did Betty Really Kill Jughead? (4×13)

The announcement that Ulrich is leaving the show threw everyone for a loop because it might be confirmation that Sprouse’s’ Jughead dies on the show.

Parents aren’t heavily involved in their teenagers’ lives in the murder-capital of the world, but they do exist and pop in from time-to-time.

Jughead and F.P. have grown close over the course of four-seasons mending their fractured relationship and become a dynamic father-son duo that supports each other and has each other’s back.

If Jughead died, F.P. would be heartbroken, disgusted, and looking to get out of a town that reminded him of his son.

It would take something major like a loss for F.P to leave Riverdale and never look back.

Still, we’re choosing to remain optimistic.

Maybe F.P. is so fed up after finding out Jughead faked his death that it strains their relationship and he skips town.

Or maybe F.P. just realizes he doesn’t want to be surrounded by the toxicity of a town famous for the Black Hood, the Gargoyle King, and Hiram Lodge.

If he’s lucky, he’ll get a good job offer somewhere else and join the ranks of the only few people (see also: Josie) to successfully get out of Riverdale alive. This may not be a bad thing.

Riverdale seems to be a town that holds people back from living their full potential.

And after all, Jughead is likely going off to college next year, so having the parents around won’t be as necessary. Plus, Archie’s been doing just fine taking care of himself since his father Fred’s (the late Luke Perry) passing.

If we’re being forced to say goodbye to F.P. let’s hope his other storylines — his romance with Alice and his role as Sheriff — get proper closure.

Hermione’s departure isn’t as crippling because Veronica is still left with one, albeit worse, paren.

Her story was never as pivotal as F.P’s. or her husband, Hiram’s, and so, it’ll be much easier to explain her departure. I can even see them saying something like Hermione realized she doesn’t want to be with Hiram anymore and is moving back to New York City. Done deal.

How do you think Riverdale will write off F.P. and Hermione?

Does F.P.’s exit confirm Jughead’s death?

Riverdale was renewed for a fifth season in January 2020.

Riverdale Review – Did Betty Really Kill Jughead? (4×13)

Riverdale The Ides of March review

It started out like any normal Riverdale episode, and none of us had any idea how it would end.

Except that we kind of did because we’ve seen brief flash-forward’s to this very moment and assumed there would be some explanation because there was no way the writers would kill off Forsythe Pendelton Jones III.

And then, they did. That’s it, Jughead is dead. Or is he?

I know we’re all still holding out hope that maybe Jughead’s just unconscious and Archie’s a bad pulse-checker (which means he’ll snag a job as a doctor in Riverdale for sure), but from the looks of it, Betty killed Jughead by clonking him over the head with a rock.

It all started when Betty and Jughead teamed up to pull one over on the Stone Wall Prep students but found they weren’t a match for them. Or were they?

Riverdale is a dark place, and though Betty, Jughead and the rest of the students have dark demons, they have morals and would never even think about killing or hurting anyone.

But these Stonewall Preppies are a whole different breed; they aren’t above or beneath any of it. Jughead said it best — the game was rigged and there was no chance that they’d ever win.

But it’s possible that Betty and Jughead outsmarted them using their shared love of murder mysteries.

Let’s channel our inner teen detectives to figure out what went down in the last moments of “March of Ides.”

While Jughead was writing a novel about the perfect murder, his Stonewall Prep classmates were planning his.

There’s still a chance that this is all still part of Jughead’s story for the Baxter Brothers that we’re seeing play out in realtime.

However, all signs are pointing at this being an elaborate part of Jughead’s plans to level with the Preppies and finally teach them a lesson after weeks of torment that concluded with framing Jughead for plagiarism of his own story, stealing his idea for a Baxter Brother’s novel without giving him credit, and threatening to out his and Betty’s sex tape. You know, that’s enough to get anybody pissed off.

Clue #1 is when Donna said the”magic word” given to her by Evelyn Evernever, which allegedly triggered Dark Betty right before Jughead’s murder. It was an uneven playing field because Betty didn’t even know there was a second trigger word in addition to “tangerine” that made her violent towards her loved ones.

We never saw what happened after that so it’s possible Donna didn’t say anything, it didn’t work, or that it put Betty in a trance instead while someone else like Donna or Brett clobbered Jughead over the head and made it look like she did it. See, so many possibilities in just this one moment.

Betty’s face seemed genuinely concerned when she realized what happened in the forest, but Betty is a good actress and the only person who could help him sell this one. She’s the daughter of the Black Hood, of course. She took on the Farm. She’s a badass!

Clue #2 is when Jughead asked Betty if she “trusts him” right before hatching his devious plan which placed heavy emphasis on Jughead putting on his Southside Serpent jacket and his signature beanie. Seeing him putting on his jacket was a moment in itself and yes, I cheered because it meant he was putting to bed Stonewall and embracing his Serpent lifestyle again, but there’s also something to be said for Jughead wearing clothing that would make his identification unmistakable.

It’s like he wanted people to know who he was. Was he even wearing the jacket when Archie checked his pulse or did he give it to someone else when he followed Brett into the woods?

Clue #3 includes the plan Jughead tells Betty he has. Jughead, a man capable of whipping up a murder mystery novel in a few short days, would never concoct a plan that simply found him wearing a bunny mask and wielding a knife.

It’s also very un-Jughead like. He can serve up some punches, but Jughead leads with his brain. He’d never murder anyone, so I’m convinced there had to be more to the story we aren’t seeing. He also told Betty he was going to get back the leverage they had on him and retrieving a sex tape means he has to find where it’s hidden first, which could mean Jughead faked his own death as part of a surprise ambush. Maybe this is a waiting game.

Clue #4 is that we never see the murder happen, and that means anything could have happened in the meantime. There is a lot of missing time and therefore, plenty of opportunities for Jughead to switch places with someone else. We also don’t know what transpired between Jughead of Brett before the “murder,” what went down between Betty and Donna, or how Betty and Jughead found each other.

The biggest giveaway in all of this might possibly be that Jughead was voicing over his own murder. How is that possible if he’s dead? This isn’t Greendale for Satan’s sake.

Does this mean we’re watching Jughead’s story pan out?

There’s also a lot of evidence that could support Jughead’s death including Betty’s terrified expression, Archie confirming that Jughead is dead (unless he’s in on it too), and some of the flash-forward moments we’ve seen including the trio burning Jughead’s beanie, FP arresting them for murder, Betty and Archie mourning his death at Pop’s, and Betty getting into Harvard.

Jughead could have pulled off the perfect murder of himself and not informed anyone even Betty so it would be believable.

Or maybe he really is dead and all of this is just out attempt at avoiding reality and hoping for a re-write.

Personally, I wish they just ditched the party, washed their hands of this demented and psychotic school, and moved on with their lives.

The fans of Riverdale aren’t interested in dealing with a storyline that found Betty unconsciously killing her boyfriend and then covering it up! We didn’t ask for this.

In fact, before all of this, it seemed like Riverdale was finding its way back to become a level-headed and enjoyable series.

Back in Riverdale, Archie and Veronica were having a lot of sex. Like so much. I know teenage hormones are all over the place, but come on!

They had sex in a forest, in his room, and even in the music room, which has a window looking into the hallway of the school! Y’all crazy.

Veronica was also caught with a flash of rum in her locker — which Archie took the blame for — and was all about “having fun” after finding out about her father’s diagnosis.

She’s acting out because she feels scared of losing her father and betrayed that he didn’t confide in her.

Veronica may claim to despise Hiram, but the cat-and-mouse game is how they show each other their love.

The thought of not having that competition scares her.

Despite most of our doubts, it seems Hiram Lodge didn’t lie about his illness.

In fact, he seems to be feeling his mortality and turning over a new leaf as he uses Archie’s center as his new training facility.

There were some solid moments between the former-arch enemy’s with Hiram even having some “good” and fatherlike moments with Archie.

Then again, he could have been trying to influence Archie into selling Andrews Construction for his own personal gain.

One can never be too trusting of Mr. Lodge.

Hiram’s other daughter, Hermosa, tried to infiltrate the Maple Club and get information on Veronica’s whiskey by seducing Toni and Cheryl. It seemed as though both of the girls were actually into whatever she was selling but thankfully, they didn’t fall prey to her trap and allowed Ronnie to shut it down.

Even when Hiram is ill, he still has his minions doing his dirty work.

Archie bailed on the sale last minute because it just didn’t feel right, and I agree. Despite the center bearing Fred’s name, selling the company his family built was like turning his back on a legacy.

Having Mr. Keller take over as foreman allows Archie to focus on things that matter to him and hopefully, school because at the rate he’s going, he’s not going to graduate with his friends. That is if any of them get to graduation before getting arrested for murder.

Principal Weatherbee probably should cut Archie some slack. His father died, his mother is barely around, he’s raising and supporting himself, running a business, and opened up a center for kids to stay safe and get off the streets. That has to count for something.

Other Maple Syrup Musings

  • Jughead’s prep school mystery nicknames were hilarious: Jardhead instead of Jughead, Byson instead of Moose, why even try to cover up anyone’s real identity?
  • Why couldn’t the Stonewall Preppies just accept that Jughead conceded and let him leave? Did they hate him so much that they needed to kill him?
  • Why couldn’t Jughead just tell the tribunal that Brett threatened him with a sex tape? That way, if the tape got leaked, you would know who did it.
  • Is Mr. DuPont the villain that Betty thinks he is?
  • What was Betty’s goal with her milkshake meeting with Donna? Does she know why Donna is lying about Mr. Chipping?
