Riverdale Season 2 Episode 4: ‘The Town that Dreaded Sundown’ Review

I was not expecting it to be about Betty! I really did think the whole black hood killer thing was going to be all about Archie. I was prepared to be wrong, but I certainly didn’t expect it to be about Betty. I’m curious to see where that goes from here. Now that some people know and we, the audience, know, it’s going to change things a little.

I’m wondering if this character will have a connection to Betty. The killer (Clifford) in season 1 ended up having a relationship with the victim (Jason) so it could be the same here. Or it could be a stranger, a stalker even. Either way, now that we know another detail I can’t wait to see where this develops from here.

It’ll also be interesting to see how Archie deals with the news. If he was in the right frame of mind he wouldn’t blame Betty because it’s not her fault, but he’s clearly not in the right frame of mind. This episode showed that. The way he waved around the gun and got into a fight with the Serpents. It’s not hard to believe that he might, even for a second, blame Betty. I can’t wait to see how that goes.

I also appreciate that Kevin and Betty seemed to be back on good terms this episode. I didn’t realise how much I missed seeing their friendship. It reminded me of what they were like during season 1 (especially the first couple of episodes).

It was nice to see Veronica stick by Archie too. Their relationship has always interested me but it was nice to see them sticking together. Elsewhere, we see Jughead continuing to be pulled from side to side but you can slowly see him being pulled further towards the Serpents and the Southside. I enjoyed seeing him and Betty team up a little to figure out the code but it seems inevitable that a huge rift is going to form sooner rather than later.
