‘Riverdale’: The She-Wolf of Wall Street is Back, & So is Crazy Betty

A lot went on in “Reservoir Dogs.” A lot of the same crazy stuff that always happens, and a great badass storyline for Veronica.

My favorite storylines for V (Camila Mendes) have always been when she’s working on her businesses. She was great at business, even in high school. And she always looks good when she’s doing it.

In this episode, we got a taste of why she’s called the She-Wolf of Wall Street. It didn’t take long for her to get back in the groove. I loved that she hired Reggie (Charles Melton) too. I’ve wanted them to work together for countless episodes now, and the writers have finally answered me. I guess they really did have to get him out of Hiram’s (Mark Consuelos) thumb for this to work. Reggie and Veronica make such a good team. I never shipped them as a couple but always loved when they were working together.

Even with them building their firm, they still have time to help Betty. (Lili Reinhart)

Betty is just as crazy as ever. I’m here for her teaming up with Tabitha (Erinn Westbrook) to find the serial killer trucker. They are certainly a fun crime-fighting duo, but B is taking it too far once again.

First, she jumped in with the trucker she assumed was the murderer when her number one rule was, don’t be alone with a trucker. And now, she wants to get information out of him about her sister. I can only assume that will involve torture. Betty, you got your man. Now, hand him over to the FBI. But this wouldn’t be Riverdale if things didn’t get dark and twisty.

Riverdale writers, what are you doing with Kevin? (Bettina Strauss/The CW)

Speaking of twisty, Cheryl’s (Madelaine Petsch) cult is growing. Did we learn nothing from the Farm? Especially Kevin (Casey Cott). We all hated him during that storyline, and now he’s joining another one. Not that we love him now, either. He broke Fang’s (Drew Ray Tanner) heart. He had what everyone dreams of, and he gave it up to go cruising for truckers. Writers, what are you doing with his character? He was once someone we all loved.

We got a look back at what Archie’s time was like as a soldier. (Bettina Strauss/The CW)

Archie’s (K.J. Apa) story has taken an interesting turn. I’m happy that we are getting to see what he went through during the war. I’m dying to see more of what everyone was up to in their time apart. But Archie has serious PTSD. He was dreaming about one of his fellow soldiers dying, but it was a dog in the dream. I can understand how you can block that out when he couldn’t do anything to save him. All he could do was listen to him die. This could really be a good in-depth story for him. And if any veterans watch the show, something they could relate to.

I love that they named the rescue dog Bingo and that they saved all the dogs. Of course, I wasn’t thrilled about Archie beating the ring leader to hell, but as his uncle said, not surprising.

While I’m not here for most musical episodes, I am here for a Coyote Ugly episode. That was a major throwback. And the women killed it on stage. A little sad that we only got one night of that.

How do you feel about Betty torturing the trucker to get info on her sister? Tweet me @PrimetimeDrama or @MandyTTCarr or comment below.
