It’s been a number of episodes since we’ve had a musical Riverdale episode, however that ends tonight because of Riverdale’s tribute to American Psycho: The Musical. The episode sports activities a number of American Psycho songs, with Kevin Keller (Casey Cott) getting the vast majority of the numbers because of him portraying Patrick Bateman in his revue of it on the on line casino’s nightclub.
However I’m getting forward of myself. Why is Kevin in a revue of American Psycho on the on line casino? Properly, Veronica (Camila Mendes) is internet hosting Slaughtercon, her serial killer fan conference. It’s all a entice to attract out TBK. It’s bizarre that Charles is on the planning committee for Slaughtercon, Charles being a serial killer himself. Veronica sees this. Nobody else does. Throughout planning, Veronica calls Betty (Lili Reinhart) the Clarice to TBK’s Hannibal Lecter, which appears too on the nostril and provides away the sport of the place Riverdale’s writing crew is cribbing this complete TBK story from. Talking of Betty, do you know that Betty is the character that has been in probably the most episodes of Riverdale? Much more than Archie (KJ Apa)? And Jughead (Cole Sprouse), the present’s narrator? It’s true! Lili Reinhart has been in 113 episodes of Riverdale (they have to even be counting subsequent week’s since we’re solely as much as 112). That’s each episode! Camila Mendes and Cole Sprouse clock in at 112 apiece, which means they every missed one, and KJ Apa brings up the rear of the Riverdale core 4 with 110 (I assume he was useless for a number of episodes of the Rivervale period).
Sufficient credit counting. Again to the present! Percival Pickins (Chris O’Shea) wants his railroad accomplished by the point Bailey’s Comet passes overhead. Why? Causes. Probably satanic causes. He wants the strike damaged. Sadly for his plans, Tabitha (Erinn Westbrook), his actual #1 enemy, provides the placing employees free meals at Pop’s to assist sustain their resolve.
Toni Topaz (Vanessa Morgan) stops by Thornhill to interrupt the information to Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch) that Fangs Fogarty (Drew Ray Tanner) and she or he are getting married. Cheryl performs it cool and introduces Toni to Heather. Toni’s heard all about Heather earlier than. You’re yesterday’s information, Toni! Go to mattress!
Percival reveals up at Pop’s and makes use of his thoughts powers to ship his entire crew again to work. It really works like a appeal although his nostril bleeds like Eleven on Stranger Issues.
Even Cheryl instructed Heather she didn’t care about Toni or her marriage ceremony, she reveals up at Kevin’s place in search of assist in cursing Toni and Fangs. Cool, cool. Completely regular factor to do. She casts a wedge spell, hoping to drive, as its title implies, a wedge between Fangs and Toni.
Archie, Tabitha, and the work crews’ households present up on the practice line work web site. Tabitha, Toni, and Archie sing, which breaks the spell Percival had over his crew. All the employees stroll off. Uncle Frank continues to be in Percival’s sway although and fires everybody as they go away, which appears counterproductive to getting that railroad constructed on time, Frank.
Agent Drake admits to being drawn to Betty, however Betty gently shoots her down. Drake doesn’t settle for no simply although and retains urgent it, saying she’s picked up vibes from Betty. It really works as a result of Betty wakes up in Drake’s mattress. Oh wait, no, that was solely a dream. Betty tells Veronica about it, who advises her to not go there with Drake however to additionally discuss to Archie. Veronica confronts Drake on her personal and tells her to again off from Betty. Veronica is glad with herself which makes me suppose this may finish badly.
Cheryl drops off a basket of freshly baked cherry muffins at Fangs and Toni’s home. By no means settle for baked items from Cheryl! We already discovered that! Toni and Fangs inform Cheryl that Child Anthony has been sick since yesterday. Good job, Cheryl. Cheryl calls in assist from Heather, who cures Child Anthony with some witchcraft, after which chides Cheryl for casting spells whereas agitated.
The principle occasion of Slaughercon is Betty on stage with Alice, speaking about she managed to flee TBK. Slaughtercon loves Betty. She fields Q&A after, answering why serial killers put on masks, after which they get a name from TBK himself. No screener Alice? Although I assume that is all a part of their entice for him. TBK asks why Betty wears a masks. As a substitute of hanging up, Alice performs it up. Betty invitations him to hitch her on stage, however he sees by means of this entice.
With Child Anthony feeling higher, Toni’s bachelorette occasion is again on. It’s everybody you’d anticipate…and likewise Agent Drake? How did she rating an invitation to this?
TBK reveals as much as strangle Kevin on stage with a trash bag, however when Betty tackles him, it’s revealed to be a part of the act. The man within the TBK-like masks is Dr. Curdle. I really feel like Kevin may have run this one by Betty. “Oh, you know the way you’re attempting to lure TBK right here? Properly, and I’m positive this gained’t confuse issues, I’m going to have a TBK lookalike on stage with me attempting to faux kill me with TBK’s signature weapon of selection.”
After the occasion, Cheryl and Heather kiss, and Heather spends the night time.
On the final day of the conference, Betty takes the stage in a musical variety of her personal from American Psycho to lure out TBK. We don’t see Betty’s music till after she sings it. We discover out that TBK didn’t present.
Veronica factors out that she’s killed extra individuals than Betty has, in one of the best piece of recommendation on Riverdale. One other fan has Black Hood’s gun. He additionally desires a signature. What’s with these guys? After Drake takes him away, Betty picks up her father’s former firearm and research it.
Betty returns house to Arche’s home and spies TBK in her childhood bed room by means of the window. She heads over, discovering useless FBI brokers on the ground. She prowls round the home in search of TBK and finds Alice and Charles tied up with baggage on their heads. They’re alive. TBK left a message. He would watch for her within the storage. TBK arrange a complete romantic dinner there, full with flowers and a trashbag masks for Betty. My principle is TBK is Hal Cooper, however now I’m not so positive. TBK offers her two choices: kill him together with her father’s gun or dismember her mom and brother collectively. Betty takes her eyes off TBK to have a look at the masks however then shoots her gun twice. Did she shoot TBK? Betty frees her mom and brother, telling them TBK is useless. And positive sufficient, TBK is bleeding on the ground of the storage.
Percival desires to interrupt the union and threatens retribution of biblical proportions.
Betty desires to interrupt up with Archie as a result of she’s afraid that she is her father’s daughter and that Archie goes to fall sufferer to the darkness inside Betty in the future. However Archie reminds her that she’s good by reminding her of a narrative concerning the two of them saving a child hen after they have been children. That’s sufficient to deliver Betty again to the sunshine (for now) and hold them collectively as a pair. After which Riverdale simply ends. It felt bizarre, simply too abrupt.
