Riverdale Season 3 Episode 22: ‘Survive the Night’ Review

Another season of Riverdale comes to an end and I have to say, it was surprisingly good. I’ve said it before but the pacing and structure this season wasn’t very good. It was incredibly messy and just felt like things were being dragged out. Although, at least we got some kind of conclusion to the G&G content and the Farm content while also finally putting an end to the Black Hood.

Riverdale Season 3 Episode 21: ‘The Dark Secret of Harvest House’ Review

During her time at the Farm, Betty continues to do more investigating and she finally gets more answers. It turns out that the Farm is taking organs (mostly kidneys) from its members and selling them under the guise of it being some kind of special treatment. We also got confirmation that people seeing their loved ones was faked. When Betty goes into the room she sees the darker version of herself and the Farm/Edgar try to convince her that that darker side is her true self and she has the gene that will make her a serial killer like Hal. It was really no surprise that it turned out to be Polly dressed up to look like Betty. I definitely didn’t expect the organ thing to be what the Farm was up to and I just hope that this new revelation isn’t going to drag their story on for too much longer. I feel like it might considering it’s completely new information but at the same time, the Farm has really become a focal point a little too late into the season and so I’m already over it.

Riverdale Season 3 Episode 20: ‘Prom Night’ Review

The biggest thing to happen this episode was the actual prom. Throughout the episode, Jughead and Betty have been trying to figure out who the Gargoyle King is. For a moment they suspect Edgar but are quickly disproved but not all is lost because they realise that the King will probably show up at prom. Watching Jughead and Betty investigate was actually really fun and gave me old school Riverdale vibes, I’ve definitely missed it a lot but things really did pick up by the time we got to prom.

Riverdale Season 3 Episode 18: ‘Jawbreaker’ Review

After a brief hiatus, Riverdale is back with more episodes for season three. This week there are three main things going on: Betty investigating the Farm, Jughead and FP investigating the death of Baby Teeth, and Archie fighting in an upcoming match against one of Elio’s fighters. This episode was actually really well laid out and it felt like we spent a good amount of time with each storyline. Considering the overall structure of the season has felt a little bit all over the place, it was nice that we got some structure during this episode.

Riverdale Season 3 Episode 17: ‘The Master’ Review

Finally we got to properly see Edgar Evernever. At the very end of last week’s episode we saw him stand up and clap the final performance of the musical along with various members of the Farm. This week, we get a little more. With the Farm having an open house, people are welcome to visit to find out more and even take little interviews with existing members to find out how to join up.

Betty goes to the open house with Veronica but doesn’t really find out much at all, however, she is able to convince Cheryl to go in wearing a wire. It’s during her two visits that we really see Edgar. He’s definitely as charismatic as I thought he would be but it’s also crystal clear that he can’t be trusted. When Betty snoops around, taking the confession tapes of Alice and Polly, and finds out one of the Farms biggest pulls, Edgar agrees to sit down with her.
