‘Riverdale’ ep 2×09, “Silent Night, Deadly Night” aired on December 13, 2017
The first half of the season flew by with all the killer drama and relationship turmoil. We had our last episode until next year and boy was it a doozy. The show closed out it’s “Black Hood” story arc with a killer arc and yea, it wasn’t quite what we expected. The red herring turned out to not be such a red herring after all. Or was he? Brad and our fellow writer Meg who does the written weekly recaps have their own theories about that reveal. Hit play and listen in as Brad and Cort break down this week’s fall finale and then check out Meg’s conspiracy theory here.
Before this episode, the show has been steadily running on all cylinders. What did you think of the reveal and what lasting effect will it leave on Betty and all her friends? The show also re-awakened the iconic love triangle from the comics with that smooch between Betty/Archie and then reuniting Ronnie and her Archikins at the end of the episode. Hope remains for Bughead, though, RIGHT???? Is it wrong that I semi wanted the killer to be Betty’s dad so he’d be out of the way for Alice/FP to make things happening? What’s your poison? Barchie, Bughead, Varchie, or are you all about Josie/Cheryl? When is poor Kev going to get some more love and not of the hook-up variety? Where is Sherriff Keller and his Mayoral Boo? We have so many weeks to wait until the show returns in January. I guess we’ll be rewatching all the eps and continual speculating whether or not the janitor was the very bad man who terrorized the citizens of Riverdale and will they ever bring back Tony Todd? Only time will tell.
