Six teenagers (from left to right: Cole Sprouse [Jughead/young FP] in a fur cape, Lili Reinhart [Betty/young Alice] in a long black cape, KJ Apa [Archie/young Fred] in a weird helmet, Camila Mendes [Veronica/young Hermione], Madelaine Petsch [Cheryl/young Penelope], and Ashleigh Murray [Josie/young Sierra].

Riverdale Season 3, Episode 4: “The Midnight Club”

This episode is pretty much automatically a winner in my book: it’s a flashback episode, a nineties episode, and a Breakfast Club ripoff all in one. What more could a girl ask for? It’s just made more amazing by the fact that, since each teen actor plays their own parent, it also includes Cole Sprouse playing a young womanizer FP and Lili Reinhart in bad-girl gear, a fun change for both of them.

Season 6, Episode 19 “Lovelines”

By Nerdy Spice

Jen (left, holding a mic) and Joey (right) sit on a couch looking at each other. Jen is smiling and holding Joey's knee; Joey is giving Jen a dubious, somewhat angry look.

This episode is a classic example of that terrible TV phenomenon: “Whoops, we ran out of storylines two episodes before the finale, so we’re going to stick a throwaway episode in here and hope no one notices.” It is pointless, contains a boatload of offensive jokes, and doesn’t have Pacey (or Dawson) in it, so basically, it should not exist.

Riverdale Season 3, Episode 3: “As Above, So Below”

Previously on Riverdale: The grownups met to discuss a Pact they had regarding the Gargoyle King and a mysterious Night on which something bad happened; Ethel had a seizure after mentioning the Gargoyle King to Betty and Jughead; Ben killed himself to be with the Gargoyle King; Edgar’s creepy daughter Evelyn introduced herself to Betty; and Archie had a fight in the prison yard and was “tapped” by the warden to be the “new Mad Dog.”

The lights come up on Archie, who’s in some kind of isolation torture cell. The sadistic Warden comes to check on him and, when he’s still intransigent, leaves him there for another week.

Meanwhile, FP and Alice are totally post-coitally snuggling in bed! Whoa. Actually I kind of like it. FP says he’s happy that the farm convinced Alice to make out with him. Alice, in return, softly says that it’s been three weeks with no mysterious blue-lip murder. Not so good at the pillow talk is she?
