How many gangs does Riverdale have? And how much demand could there be for drugs?
Hiram is on the mend after being shot, but that hasn’t stopped him from trying to pick up where he left off. The only problem is that his valuable product seems to have gone missing.
Judging by Hiram’s exchanged with Veronica, I’m going to say that he knew what she did with his drugs and his tools, and never suspected that it was Hermione’s fault.
But Hiram wasn’t Ronnie’s only problem. She became indebted to Gladys Jones, the buyer of said product whom she now owed because she destroyed it.
Hiram figured that Gladys’ return to town wasn’t a mere coincidence, and though they are technically “enemies,” I think that they’re actually in cahoots.
Veronica, bless her heart, does not have it in her to shakedown and manipulate two adults who have been pushing product for a long time.
Hiram caved rather quickly when Veronica joined his meeting with Gladys and propositioned that Gladys deals candy while he focuses on the prison.
You know nothing is ever as it seems with Hiram Lodges, and this seems to be a sneaky way to get Veronica tangled up in the family business.
Hiram and Gladys have more in common than we initially believed.
Much like Hiram, Gladys has no qualms about using her children to further her agenda and subsequent takeover of the town.
She and Jellybean have been coy about the motives for their return to Riverdale, but we know she’s trying to win the town back by stealing Hiram’s business and Jughead’s gang.
Gladys wasn’t just suggesting Jughead team up with the Ghoulies out of the kindness of her own heart. She benefitted from it because it took what Hiram wanted.
And when Jughead failed to convince the Ghoulies, now the Gargoyle Gang, to join the declining Serpent population, she went ahead and convinced them. And you bet she rubbed it in Jughead’s face that she “did what he couldn’t.”
Gladys is going to steal the reigns right from under Jughead, which, if you think about it, is terribly sad. These parents continue to prove that they are worse than their children.
Speaking of parents who make really terrible decisions, can we talk about Alice Cooper?
Homegirl has gone off the deep end. Like, waaaay, waaaaay deep.
Betty is in over her head trying to help her mother or illuminate the cultish ways of The Farm.
Alice has been brainwashed into seeing exactly what they want her to see. If it hadn’t been for Betty, Alice surely would have drowned to death.
And Polly, who would have been responsible for her mother’s death, would have accepted some carefree and bullshit excuse provided by The Farm and that she-devil Evelyn Evernever.
Betty saved her mother as the rest of the members stood by and watched hoping for some kind of miracle. What is wrong with them?
And the worst part is that Alice wasn’t even grateful. She said she saw “the other side,” and gained a newfound purpose for her life which apparently meant selling the house — to The Farm I’m sure — and moving in with her family.
She’s delusional and dangerous, but how do you stop someone like that? How do you snap them into reality?
The Farm is obviously preying on the weak minded who need a sense of purpose in life. They even got to Kevin who has been feeling low and hurt by Mooses’ departure.
Maybe Betty can turn to FP to save her mother? If anyone is able to, he’d be able to talk some sense into her. That is if The Farm even allows Alice to see him anymore.
Will Betty’s motivation to take down The Farm be what finally brings Edgar Evernever out of hiding? I sure hope so. I can’t wait to see former heartthrob Chad Michael Murray as the elusive cult leader.
Sometimes, I really miss the teen kinship between Betty, Jughead, Veronica and Archie. The previous seasons had twisted storylines, but they always worked together and teamed up for a common goal.
Now, it seems like everyone is doing their own thing and dealing with their own piece of crazy pie.
While Betty was singlehandedly trying to stop the Farm, Jughead attempted to boost the Serpent’s number, and Veronica tried to detonate both Gladys and Hiram, Archie was fighting his own battles in the ring.
The one thing that hasn’t changed from season to season is Archie’s hardheadedness and know-it-all qualities.
The moment Tom told him he “wasn’t ready” for a professional fight and that “boxing wasn’t something you want to half-ass,” you knew deep down in your core that Archie was going to ignore his trainer and sign up for a fight.
And sure enough, he overheard Elio looking for boxers to fight his man Randy.
Archie was so desperate to cut corners and make a name for himself, he agreed to fight Randy for $5 thousand buckaroos and even throw the fight in his favor.
Seriously, Archie. This, precisely this, is how you keep getting into trouble.
When Archie realized he was the architect of his own messes, mainly because Josie, his new squeeze, pointed it out in a very logical way, it was too late.
Elio threatened Archie’s life if he pulled out of the fight or tried to change the outcome of the fight.
We know Elio likes to rig games in his favor as witnessed at Ronnie’s poker night, however, rigging a fight in favor or himself and his boxer to make a lot of money? That’s a new form of low.
Thankfully, Archie didn’t just give it, he decided to fight back.
And though he didn’t officially win, he stood his ground and proved that he is worthy of being in the ring with the big dogs.
That’s definitely a huge feat.
His after-party celebration wasn’t too shabby either, though I will say I think his relationship with Josie moved too quickly.
They went from friends to full-on partners in the matter of an episode.
Josie has always given me the sense that she’s untouched by the darkness of Riverdale so maybe she’s the only person who can save Archie from himself.
Just her comment about Archie thinking he’s only worth five-thousand-dollars put things into perspective for him. Though he’s a strong fighter who holds his own, Archie’s self-esteem has been pretty shot this season.
This was a good reminder that he doesn’t have to sell himself short simply to prove a point.
In addition to the Serpents, the Ghoulies, and the Gargoyle King, there’s a new girl gang in town marking their territory: The Pretty Poisons.
I’m conflicted on my feelings towards Cheryl and Toni’s gang because part of me truly believes that Cheryl is doing this more for herself than she is for Toni.
She didn’t even get Toni’s permission to deploy the Pretty Poison’s to beat up Fangs and Sweet Pea, which was hilarious in its own right because they got their butts handed to them by a group of ladies!
Toni was furious for a few reasons: she wasn’t informed about Cheryl’s call, she was pissed that Cheryl decided to take the lead, and she was mad because her friends were attacked.
The Serpents may not be family right now because of how dysfunctional things are in Riverdale, but they were always there for her when she needed them.
And as she mentioned, the gang isn’t there to assert dominance, they are there for support and unity.
But overall, I’m not pleased with this storyline because Toni is a Serpent by blood; she belongs there.
The new gang has also caused a bit of tension between Toni and Cheryl which is truly upsetting.
Cheryl always needs to rethink her actions because putting others first doesn’t come naturally to her and Toni has always been supportive and understanding, but I’m afraid Cheryl trying to assert dominance over something that has been Toni’s whole life and family will lead to some issues.
What did you think of the episode?
Is there hope for Alice? Did Polly get baptized and survived?
Will Veronica continue to be forced to pay off large amounts of debt to Hiram and Gladys?
Will Jughead and FP realize Gladys’ true motives?
Will Archie and Josie last? Does he really have a career in boxing?

Cassie and Jenny may have been responsible for the Kleinssasers’ undoing, but that family was always capable of destroying themselves all on their own.
Blood was spilled on Big Sky Season 1 Episode 15 as we saw the demise of Rand and JW.
And it was a long time coming.
After the Kleinsasser family caught Cassie, Jenny, and Gil on their property, it was every man (and woman) for themselves.
And thankfully, they all made it out alive.
The same couldn’t be said for Rand and JW, who deserved everything they got.
When Rand tried to run Cassie over, she shot out his wheels ensuring that he crashed. The next morning when Rosie found Cassie unconscious, they found Rand bleeding out inside his cabin.
He survived long enough to see his mother one last time before bleeding out.
JW died not long after his psychotic brother. Cassie and Cheyenne found him just as he was gearing up to take out Jenny. A wrestling match ensued and his little sister pulled the trigger.
While Cheyenne definitely knew that her family was disturbed and wanted to break free from them, she wasn’t all that different from them either.
She wanted the same thing JW and Rand did — she wanted the ranch for herself. And she wanted to be free from the control of the deranged men in her family.
And she got it. With JW and Rand eliminated, the ranch now belonged to Cheyenne.
We never saw Horst pay for his sins, but considering that Cassie and Jenny had a sample of the toxic chemicals on his land, it’s safe to assume he was held accountable for all the skeletons on his property.
Does anyone else feel a little cheated for getting invested in Margaret’s storyline only to see nothing come of it? If anyone deserved to kill anyone, it should’ve been Margaret killing Horst.
Cassie and Jenny made sure justice was served on all fronts by taking down Sheriff Wagy, who admitted on video to plotting to kill Cassie.
With the Kleinsasser family taken care of, Cassie and Jenny are free to return to their biggest problem: Ronald/ Arthur.
I’m much more invested in all the Ronald developments than I ever was in the Kleinssaser mystery, which made it feel like a completely different series.
It would’ve made more sense if Ronald was somehow connected to the Kleinsasser’s, but instead, we’ve just been following two separate storylines about people who are all too comfortable with killing for their own benefit.
I’m glad to be circling back to the former one.
The episode kicked off with Arthur burying Mary’s body and getting caught by Phoebe.
It was tense as he explained he was burying a dead deer, and then contemplated bashing Phoebe’s skull in with a rock.
I’m really glad he didn’t. Phoebe didn’t seem to buy Arthur’s story either — she’s a smart kid and knows that something is definitely up, which is why she lied to her mother.
Even when Arthur tried to remain normal, he gave off creep vibes.
Arthur was terrified of what would happen if Scarlet found out about his past, but much to his surprise, she didn’t even care.
It’s unclear how long Scarlet knew about his real identity, but I think that she knew the whole time Mary tried to warn her and just hoped Ronald would get rid of her sister.
She even seemed less concerned about what happened to Mary and more concerned with authorities finding Steve’s body.
Yep, turns out Scarlet was the one that bashed in her baby daddy’s skull (with a screwdriver!) as Mary helped her hide the body.
Scarlet explained that Mary held the crime over her head all these years, but obviously, this made Mary an accomplice.
Wouldn’t it just be easier to let the authorities believe Mary was the murderer? After all, the body was on her premises!
And Steve is the least of their worries since they’re really after Ronald!
However, Scarlet revealed she was cool as a cucumber with Ronald’s past crimes. In fact, she was even more attracted to him, which meant Ronald somehow met his perfect match.
If you didn’t think soulmates existed before, you definitely do now.
Scarlet may be even more deranged than Ronald since she owns up to what she’s done and is more than happy to give into her urges whereas he tries to tame them and is ashamed of them.
Having someone who shares his “interests” is bound to make Ronald much more dangerous.
Scarlet’s confidence likely won’t have a positive influence on him.
Will he go full-on psycho? And what does this mean for poor Phoebe?
Lindor and Geri — who is hellbent on revenge even if it might get her killed — were closing in on them, but Ronald’s storyline is far from over.
As the teasers for next week’s Big Sky Season 1 finale reveal, Ronald is going to get caught, and it will likely unearth something much more sinister than we ever anticipated.
Will Ronald take them to where all the bodies are buried?
What else was he involved in? And why do I have a hunch Scarlet will help him escape again?
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?
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.
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.
