Thanksgiving was an eventful holiday in Riverdale as Jughead and Betty linked up to solve the mystery of Mr. Chipping’s death, an ice storm hit Riverdale, and Archie got a gun pulled on him at his dinner at the rec center.
Oh, what fun.
Betty and Jughead’s sleuthing is always in tip-top shape, and Betty had an extra level of sass that I was lovin’. She looks sweet, but she’s not, okay Donna.
Unfortunately, no matter Jughead and Betty’s best intentions, Bret and Donna were one-step ahead of them.
Also, can someone please explain to me their idea of fun because wearing bunny masks and walking around with axes isn’t a joke. Bret’s lucky Betty didn’t kill him to protect Jughead.
Jughead hasn’t learned his lesson of not talking openly about his plans to unearth the school’s mysteries in public, and Bret overheard everything.
Therefore, Jughead and Betty may have thought they had the upper hand, but they were really helping Donna and Bret frame Mr. Chipping.
Women tend to not come forward about sexual assault out of fear that no one will believe them. Sadly, Riverdale is perpetuating that by offering up Donna’s affair storyline with Mr. Chipping, which seems to be fabricated in order to destroy his integrity and squash any doubt that his death was anything but a suicide from being a terrible person. At first, Mr. DuPont tried to convince Jughead that Chipping’s alcoholism played a role in his death, and when that didn’t work, they attempted to make him a predator.
Mr. Chipping was a favorite of the school until he wasn’t. And it’s those last words he said before he jumped that underline the notion that this was not a willing suicide. He was coerced or blackmailed by Mr. DuPont.
Everyone at Stonewall Prep is in on it, and they’re determined to shut Jughead’s investigation down because he’ll likely figure out the school’s deepest and darkest secrets if he doesn’t.
Then, there’s the fact that Bret and Donna set up a camera that is videotaping everything in Jughead’s dorm room including his more intimate moments with Betty.
Are they going to try to use that against him? Do they think they’ll have the same power of Jughead as they did over Mr. Chipping.
The good news is that neither Betty nor Jughead truly believed what was being presented, and Betty has it all mapped out on an investigation board so she’ll likely get to the bottom of this and any secret society that’s involved.
Archie’s good intentions of hosting Thanksgiving dinner at the rec center turned sour when Dodger’s family turned up for a side dish of revenge.
And look, it’s understandable that Dodger’s mother wants answers, but her actions and threats were stupid.
She wanted so badly to blame Archie when he wasn’t involved (at least not directly) with Dodger’s beating.
Also, your son is an asshole and a bully, Mrs. Dickinson, so I can’t say anyone feels too terrible about what happened.
The deep-fried turkey explosion caused enough of a distraction for Mary to grab the gun and threaten to kill ’em all if they didn’t get out of dodge. Badass Mary, you can stay.
Though, having Mary make comments about how much she misses having her husband around and their whole moment of grace was irritating. I hate when a show suddenly changes the narrative to fit the story they’re trying to tell. For most of Riverdale, it was just Archie and his dad while Mary was in Chicago. You don’t get to bring up all these old memories when you weren’t even here for the last few years.
But all of this was included for a greater purpose — Archie dedicated the rec center to his late father who would’ve been proud.
Hiram Lodge is Mayor already because, of course, he is. Why would anyone try to stop the most dangerous man in Riverdale from wielding an uncontrollable amount of power? He ran unopposed and won, and figured that meant he could shut down Archie’s festivities because “they were dangerous.”
Little did he know, Veronica was serious about not being part of the family and playing nice. The Thanksgiving dinner on the dining room floor is proof of just that.
Hiram seriously brings out the worst in people. Case-and-point, FP, who almost slashed his throat with a broken bottle and then decided there was no law against him being the Sheriff of Riverdale and the leader of the Serpents. Only in Riverdale, friends. Only in Riverdale.
And then we have the absurd storyline happening at Thistlehouse. The writers just won’t give this one up even though it’s bordering on disgusting at this point.
The storyline isn’t doing Cheryl any favors, and it’s a mystery as to why T.T is sticking around and accepting of all of this.
After they killed Uncle Bedford, Cheryl devised a wicked plan to scare away Aunt Crickett so that they could dump the body in Sweetwater River.
It sounds messed up even without revealing their unsavory plan.
Having a corpse of your dead brother around is one thing, but to pretend to serve up human flesh at Thanksgiving dinner and threaten to go public with the act of cannibalism to protect your maple syrup industry. Honestly, Cheryl’s gone off the deep end.
The only redeeming factor here is that she never actually served up Uncle Bedford for dinner, she just made them believe she did.
But still, it’s in everyone’s best interest, including Cheryl and Toni’s, if Riverdale drops this deranged storyline.

Is Donna lying about Mr. Chipping?
How to Watch ‘Hamilton’ on Disney+ this Fourth of July
This July, you’re getting the best seat in the house for Hamilton and you aren’t paying hundreds of dollars for it!
On July 3, Disney+ will begin streaming the Lin-Manuel Miranda smash Broadway musical, which follows the life of Alexander Hamilton and the Founding Fathers.
The version of the original production was filmed at the Richard Rodgers Theatre on Broadway in June of 2016.
While you’ll be able to enjoy it from your living room, Miranda has gone out of his way to give you full Broadway experience. He tweeted the screen-adaptation will feature “whole show, every note & scene, & a 1-minute countdown clock during intermission.”
Here’s everything you need to know about streaming Hamilton on Disney+
How to Watch?
Hamilton will be available to Disney+ subscribers. You can stream it on online or on your streaming devices.
How Much Does Disney+ Cost?
You can snag a subscription with on-demand access annually for $69.99 per year or monthly for $6.99. The annual membership saves you about $14 yearly. This gives you access to all of Disney and Marvel content!
You can also get the bundle with ESPN+ and Hulu for an additional $12.99 a month. Bundling the three gives you a 25% savings or roughly $5 bundled rather than subscribing to each service separately.
What’s Hamilton Rated?
Miranda recently revealed the screen adaptation will be exactly the same as the stage performance sans two swear words. In order to qualify for the “PG-13” rating, the film must not have more than one swear word. The rating warns of “language and some suggestive material.”
Is It Worth My Money?
Disney has an extensive catalog and much like other streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime, it adds new content monthly from classic films, shows and cartoons, animated films, and brand new originals.
For those who like Hamilton, Disney+ also offers the stage-to-screen film adaptation of Newsies. And if you’re looking for more of Miranda’s work, Disney+ is streaming the reboot of Mary Poppins and Moana.
‘Fuller House’ Season 6: Is the Door Open For Another Reboot?
Fuller House came to an end after five seasons earlier this month, but the cliffhanger felt as if the series intentionally left the door open for another reboot.
Even DJ emphasized: the door is always open.
But was that intentional? While it doesn’t seem like Netflix has any interest in keeping the show around, the cast and showrunner are remaining optimistic.
In the final moments of the series, Kimmy and Steph said their goodbyes before moving families out of the Fuller-Tanner house for good.
Following their exit, DJ becomes emotional as the usually full, loud, and alive house falls eerily quiet. Someone knocks on the door and it turns out to be her sister and childhood bestie informing her that they don’t want to leave.
Stephanie then drops another surprise that could carry the show for a few more seasons — she’s pregnant. (Read our reviews/recaps of the final season of Fuller House here)
For an audience who grew up with these characters, it’s hard to say goodbye and come to terms with the idea of not being there for their next steps.
But while it’s one thing for the audience to want to continue the series, it’s another when the actors are fully on-board.
Both Andrea Barber (Kimmy Gibbler) and Candace Cameron Bure (DJ Fuller) told TV Insider that they are keeping their fingers crossed for another reboot in the future.
“We talk about that all the time and put it out there so much. Who knows what will happen in 10 or 15 years. Never say never,” Bure said. “If there is another opportunity, I know all of us would reprise these characters again.”
Barber added that wrapping up season 5 did not feel final. “I really want to play this character and see where she is and see her grow,” Barber said. “We’ve seen Kimmy, DJ, and Stephanie since they were 5 and 10. Let’s continue it into our 60s. Let’s see them as the Golden Girls of the new generation. I’m ready.”
In fact, Cameron-Bure told E! News that she would play DJ forever if she could.
“I would play DJ Tanner for the rest of my life,” she said in 2018. “If the audience wanted it and the networks wanted it, I would do it forever.”
So, yeah, there’s a huge chance the cult-sitcom could see a reboot somewhere down the line that would find the She-Wolf pack dealing with grandchildren.
Not many shows get the luxury of catching up with their fans every so often, but in this case, even with declining ratings, there’s a ton of love for the 90s sitcom.
Of course, by that point, we hope Stephanie and Kimmy and their families actually moved out of DJ’s home.
The San Francisco house is big, but it’s not that big.
Would you want the show to return in the next decade? Or is Fuller House milking it?
7 Reasons Why We Love Fallon Carrington on ‘Dynasty’
Fallon Carrington is one-of-a-kind.
Fans were initially drawn to The CW’s Dynasty because of the scandalous drama but we’ve stayed because of Liz Gillies, who does an incredible job bringing the female protagonist and lead heroine to life.
Gillies’ Fallon is a diva (in the best possible way), a businesswoman, a fashion icon, and more often than not, the show’s saving grace. She’s always ready for a good scheme, just as long as she comes out on top. But underneath that pristine exterior, she’s just a girl who loves and wants to be loved.
Fallon is the queen of Carrington Manor, and we wouldn’t have it any other way!
Here are some of the reasons we love Fallon Carrington on Dynasty!
She’s Bold, Ambitious, and Confident
Fallon is the girl boss in her personal, professional, and romantic life. She won’t let anything stand in her way, and she’s not afraid to speak her mind or roll up her sleeves and do the work or get a little dirty. Even when she’s out of her league or element, Fallon will dive in headfirst because she’s confident and aware of her own capabilities.
Her Closet Is the Dream
Staple pieces, shoes, handbags, oversized hats, Fallon has it all! Everyone’s fashion on Dynasty is superb, but Fallon’s is unbeatable. It’s a huge part of her character and reflects her personality. She’s able to pull anything off including business chic, preppy casual, or evening bombshell. Her closet is so impressive that even Kirby borrows some staple pieces (we wouldn’t mind getting some hand-me-downs either)!
She’s Business Oriented
Fallon has money on her mind. In the early days, she’s driven to follow in her father’s footsteps and become the new CEO of Carrington Atlantic. When that falls through, she proves that she’s determined to pave her own way as an entrepreneur. Throughout the seasons, she’s found many ways to reinvent herself and reinvest her time while making business-savvy decisions.
Her Love for Family
The Carringtons are one of the most dysfunctional families on television and the family tree is rather complex. But what remains clear is the love that they have for each other. Despite the constant arguing and betrayal, they always have each other’s backs.
Fallon is a daddy’s girl through-and-through, and while their relationship might not always be perfect, all she wants is for him to love her back and recognize her potential. Her care and appreciation also extends to friends like Culhane and Monica who she treats like family.
She’ll Fight For What she Wants
When Fallon sets her mind on something, nothing will get in her way of achieving that goal. When she wanted to win back Liam, she went out of her way to eliminate the competition and prove that she was the best. Her determination is to be admired because it’s what helps her back up anytime she gets knocked down. We can all learn a thing or two about being resilient from Fallon.
Her Witty One-Liners and Comebacks
Fallon’s words and witty zingers are her weapons. She never hesitates because she’s always equipped and ready to hurl the best comeback. Her snark has given fans some of the best and funniest quotes from the reboot.
How Vulnerable She Is Around Liam
Fallon rarely shows her heart, but if there’s anyone who is able to bring down her walls and help her open up, it’s Liam. The love she has for him is pure, and while she sometimes makes some questionable decisions, he’s always around to keep her grounded and level-headed. Their relationship is full of passion, mutual respect, and genuine love. They’re a perfect match — he keeps her accountable while she’s helped him live a life he enjoys.
