Welcome to my accepted episode of the season so a long way! I beloved the layout of this hour — the vogue the episode modified into as soon as divided into character chapters — and I beloved the chapters themselves. By focusing in on one story at a time, we in point of fact purchased to search out obvious plots in original ways. With out a doubt, I’d luxuriate in if each and a week bask in been formatted this form. Let’s web into it.
Archie & Jughead
The main chapter takes us on the avenue with the 2 younger males who bask in been strolling for days in constant fear that Hiram Hotel may possibly well well lift as much as them. Within the event that they’re so anxious about Hiram catching up, may possibly well well I counsel they produce something completely different than WALK?! What produce you are desirous to bet they’re handiest like 50 miles open air of Riverdale, max?
They pause at a payphone so Jug can change Betty, but when she doesn’t occupy up, Arch suggests Jug shuffle relief. But as Jug reminds him, Betty as soon as took down a serial killer and Archie can’t shuffle five minutes without being kidnapped, which is a sturdy point. And speaking of Archie’s tendency for dreary suggestions, he finds a farm where he suggests they bunk for the evening. Within minutes of strolling onto the property, a younger girl pulls a rifle on them. They introduce themselves as Cal and Biff from Centerville — clearly, Archie is Biff, Jug may possibly well perhaps by no methodology pull that one off. They meet Laurie Lake and Gracie, the girl with the gun. “Biff” claims they bask in been robbed on the inform, so Laurie presents them some dinner.
Over dinner, it’s determined that Laurie likes her some Biff, so she suggests the boys utilize the evening in the barn. She says they’ll repay her with farm work the next day, and seeing as how Archie is a teenage boy and Laurie is hot, he agrees, no topic Jug’s objections. The following morning, Archie is transferring bales of hay with out a shirt on — that you simply can’t quiz him to wear clothes for this! — when Jug decides to head into city to lift some photos.
Jug, peaceable a limited bit suspicious over the dearth of folk at the farm, finds out that the city is additionally surprisingly empty. Town of Athens is roofed in G&G symbols, and there are no longer any males to be found. In preserving with a homeless girl, the introduction of fizzle rocks modified the city, and now, your entire man bask in left to work on building a detention heart where they’ll compose fizzle rocks. Those males? They work for the “Man in Dark,” in some other case identified as Hiram Hotel. To be succesful to glue the dots for you, Hiram’s detention heart will seemingly be passe to compose fizzle rocks, that are straight away connected to G&G.
Realizing that Laurie and Gracie’s father works for Hiram, Jug rushes dwelling, but he’s already too leisurely. After Laurie gave Archie a transient shave — an entirely fashioned thing to provide — and briefly made out with him, Archie pulled an Archie and stupidly told her his ravishing name and the truth that he’s running from Hiram Hotel. So naturally, Laurie knocked him out, tied him up, and called Hiram. Laurie’s hoping that Hiram will commerce her father and brother for Archie, and Hiram agrees.
But don’t fear! Jug gets relief in time to untie Archie, but in want to running, Archie needs to protect and fight. THIS KID. For some reason, dreary Archie thinks he can assassinate Hiram with hedge clippers no topic the truth that Laurie and Gracie bask in rifles and additionally no topic the truth that HIRAM IS STILL VERONICA’S FATHER. Thankfully, Jughead remembers to play the Veronica card sooner than it’s too leisurely, so the 2 of them lift off sooner than Hiram can obtain them. (Particular shout-out to Jug for running without losing the shirt tied around his waist. That takes skill. Both that or it’s permanently connected to him.)
After they travel that anguish, Jug comes up with an thought: They’re going to eye Jug’s mother. And so, they hit the avenue as soon as but again. (Subsequent: Betty meets the Gargoyle King)
