Riverdale – Fast Times at Riverdale High (4×02)

Riverdale/ The CW

Published

Riverdale is back in its groove in the second installment of season 4.

The series is really embracing the high school vibe with everyone gearing up to go back to school for their senior year.

But for the viewers who have experienced the rollercoaster of G&G and The Farm, it all feels a little juvenile and boring.

The biggest foe in town right now is a man named Mr. Honey who is anything but sweet.

He’s the principal replacing Weatherbee and making it a mission to make Riverdale High a safe place to be.

Except that safe doesn’t exist in this town.

Mr. Honey’s biggest issue right now is with Cheryl Blossom, and when he calls the cops to file a noise complaint against her party, she realizes it’s going to be war.

The only way Mr. Honey can be redeemed is if he’s somehow tied into the mystery of this town.

Is he part of an urban legend? Is he working for The Farm? I’ve learned many moons ago not to trust anyone in Riverdale.

As Veronica dealt with the media fallout of her parent’s incarceration, she realized her Lodge reputation probably isn’t ideal for college applications and decided to change her name to Veronica Gomez.

No telling if the name change is going to affect her person, but if it means she won’t be performing pieces like “All That Jazz” anymore, we don’t want it.

Archie came to the defense of Reggie, who was still getting pushed around by his abusive father.

Reggie didn’t take gently to Archie defending him in front of his dad considering his father frowns upon weakness, but he definitely got his dad’s attention when he smashed up his expensive car.

Betty continued to work with her half-brother Charles, whom I don’t fully trust, to infiltrate The Farm somehow.

Their best bet to get in and check on their mother, who hasn’t responded in days, is Kevin, which should tell you everything you need to know about the operation their running.

Kevin came to apologize to Betty and call a truce, but she wasn’t over the fact that he tried to drag her by her ankles to a lobotomy.

Sorry, you don’t just bounce back from that Kev.

Betty and Charles didn’t fully trust him so they tested him and he failed with flying colors.

But eventually, Betty knew she had to tell him the truth if she wanted him to help, so she told him about his mother being undercover at the Farm.

When he told Fangs about the fake witness, he was able to see where Edgar and his minions are hiding out.

Let’s get mama Alice out of there.

Jughead’s storyline was probably the most interesting because he was recruited to a prestigious (and privileged) school titled Stonewall.

The teacher, Mr. Chipping, came to recruit him personally and despite initial hesitation, Jughead was loving that the school and students dedicated themselves to learning.

If I’m honest, though, the school looks like the kind of place where weird things happen and things go wrong.

When FP said his father went missing while attending the school, it was obvious that Jug’s time at Stonewall wouldn’t be spent discussing Moby Dick.

What are they up to in that school?

Betty’s support meant the world, even if we’re opposed to Jughead transferring. (We don’t mind his uniform one bit, however.)

We can’t have him looped out of the core four.

And lastly, Cheryl seems like she has it all together, but it’s growing increasingly alarming that she’s chatting up her corpse of a brother like it’s no big deal.

Cheryl hasn’t told Toni about it nor does she want anyone to know so at least we know that below the surface she knows it’s wrong.

What did you think of the second episode of Riverdale Season 4?

Are you intrigued yet or are they off to a slow start?

What do you think happens to Jughead?

Riverdale Postpones Hedwig Musical Episode

Coronavirus is effecting the upcoming schedule on The CW.

And Riverdale fans might not be pleased because the musical episode has been postponed as the series goes on an indefinite hiatus.

The teen drama has been on a break since March 11 and was set to return with a musical episode focusing on Hedwig and the Angry Inch on April 8.

Unfortunately, that’s not happening. The musical episode is being moved to April 15 instead!

A schedule update for the first week of April (April 6th) reveals that the network will air a re-rerun of its DC’s crossover “Crisis on Infinite Earths” instead of the episode “Wicked Little Town.”

The 5-part crossover which brought together The CW’s biggest superheroes into one 5-hours episode in 2019 and the beginning of 2020 is filling a few voids in the schedule including Sunday’s time-block of Supergirl and Batwoman. It’s also stepping in to fill Thursday’s time slot, which usually went to Legacies. The series is set to air a premature season finale on March 26 after production shuttered due to the outbreak and they couldn’t finish filming the season.

Riverdale was forced to shutter production this season after a member of the crew tested positive for coronavirus. All shows followed suit shortly after.

No Worries, KJ Apa Will Star As Archie on ‘Riverdale’ For At Least 3 More Years

Halloween Costumes TV Shows

Riverdale has at least three more seasons in its tank.

How do we know? Because KJ Apa said so in a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times while promoting his Christian film, I Still Believe. 

The actor, who plays our beloved Archie on The CW teen drama, revealed he signed a multi-year deal to star on the series.

While he didn’t get into the nitty-gritty of his contract, he explained that he’ll be on the series for at least the next three years.

And thus, that means we’ll get at least three more seasons.

The series was already renewed for a fifth season in January, but this new intel means we can rest-assured the series will likely continue on until season 7.

Riverdale Review – Rumors of My Death Have Been Greatly Exaggerated (4×16)

And if you’re a fan of the show, set in the murder capital of the world, you know that so much can happen in the span of three years.

Following season 4, the teens including Apa’s Archie and his besties Jughead Jones (Cole Sprouse), Betty Cooper (Lili Reinahrt), and Veronica Lodge (Camila Mendes) will graduate Riverdale High and go to college.

It’s unclear how the dynamic will change the series, but maybe it’ll give the show a more adult-vibe.

Earlier this month, it was announced that Skeet Ulrich (FP Jones) and Marisol Nicholas (Hermione Lodge) will be departing the series.

Currently, production on the remainder of the series has been postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak.

5 Ways ‘Riverdale’ Can Explain FP Jones’ Exit

How Riverdale Will Explain Skeet Ulrich's Departure F.P. Jones

When Riverdale announced Skeet Ulrich’s exit 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.

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.

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?
