Riverdale Season 3 Episode 16: ‘Big Fun’ Review

I feel like I’m the only person who wasn’t completely blown away by this musical episode but that’s not to say there weren’t good moments because there were. Some fantastic ones even. Like the previous musical episode, they jump into things fairly quickly and they both serve as fun episodes to watch.

I actually don’t know too much about Heathers: the Musical so I can’t really speak to how Riverdale‘s used it but I will say that the music we heard was catchy and fitted in really well with every scene. It never really felt like it was overused or that they were just trying shoehorn in songs where they didn’t need to be. Similarly to the previous musical episode, everyone was great at singing. We had some new voices this time around too but every single person was a genuine pleasure to listen to.

Riverdale Season 3 Episode 15: ‘American Dreams’ Review

As we saw in the previous episode, Archie is still marked for sacrifice and more people are coming after him. We soon discover that there are several “kill the red paladin” cards out there and the only reason that people haven’t come after him is because it’s a harder quest that needs to be worked up to. It was so great to see Archie, Jughead, and Betty work together to try and figure out the problem. I’ve missed seeing the three of them interacting and it honestly felt like the early episodes of Riverdale.

I love how this episode started with Alice showing off her house to potential buyers. It was so uplighting and happy-go-lucky. She was clearly adamant that it was going to sell so she could go and live her life with the farm permanently. She does everything she can to make her house seem like the perfect place to raise a family but Betty isn’t having any of it.

Riverdale Season 3 Episode 13: ‘Requiem for a Welterweight’ Review

In this weeks episode, we see that Archie is training with Tom Keller and while at the gym one day, he agrees to fight one of Elio’s best fighters. At first, he plans to throw the fight but then decides against it. It’s a risk because changing his mind means that Elio’s fighter might try to kill Archie instead of just knocking him down. The fighting gets more and more intense but luckily Archie manages to keep things going until the bell rings. He doesn’t win the fight but at least he wasn’t killed in the ring either.

Riverdale Season 3 Episode 12: ‘Bizarrodale’ Review

After burning the drugs last week, Hermione tells Veronica and Reggie that they’re going to have to make up the money and pay back the buyer. Veronica tries to take whatever money she can from Pop’s and the Speakeasy but comes up short leading Reggie to an idea that involves stealing money from his father’s dealership. The plan almost goes perfectly (minus Reggie getting shot in the arm) until Reggie opens up the bag to reveal a dye pack that explodes all over him and the money. Regardless, they go to take what money they can to the buyer who we discover his Gladys Jones.

In the previous episode of Riverdale we saw Hiram get shot by an unknown assailant and this week’s episode was all about figuring out who did it. We see Veronica hire Jughead to investigate and find answers which we do get before the end of the episode.
