Riverdale: North Side v South Side

Oooh, Archie’s in trouble!

WARNING: Spoilers ahead! Duh!

S2 E4 Chapter 17: The Town That Dreaded Sundown

“Every time that you walk out that door. Every time, that I call you and you don’t pick up the phone, my heart stops.”

I know how you feel, Mama Cooper because that is exactly how I feel when I call my family and they don’t pick up.

Anyway, last night’s episode of Riverdale was a chaotic hoot. I feel as if Jughead and Betty are drifting apart slowly, but surely to make way for Toni and Jughead and I did not sign up for this ship.

Archie is told to disband The Red Circle by the principal, but he refuses to give in. Betty receives a letter from the Black Hood and he says that he is doing the killing for her. Betty’s brother? A secret admirer? A Riverdale High footballer? What if it’s actually Jughead? Ah, Dilton Doiley? I think I’ll the Sheriff to my Black Hood list. With the Sheriff, it’ll make sense why crimes are not being solved in Riverdale. Anyway, she shares the letter with Kevin and refuses to admit it into evidence instead she hands over the cipher, which her mother publishes before handing it over to the Sheriff.

Archie buys a gun supplies with a fake ID while Betty asks Jughead to crack the cipher with her only to find out that he has started working on it with that horrible Toni creature. Betty then suggests that they have a code-cracking party: her, Juggie, Kevin, and that creature. The get-together takes place at Jughead’s but things do not go down well especially with Toni’s lame attempt at a joke in trying to rile my girl Betty up. 

Jughead asks all the right questions about the town’s very own serial killer, while Betty tries to remember where exactly she saw the cipher. Toni and Betty get into an argument about the north side and south side. With Toni finally openly showing her disdain for Betty, she tries to drive a wedge between Bughead by saying that Jughead actually hangs out with the Serpents at school, something that Jughead has been trying to hide from Betty. She then leaves with Kevin leaving Jughead to face his displeased girlfriend.

Toni failed anyway (for now) because the couple continued to solve the cipher. 

that lighting at night, though!

Archie is a lone vigilante. He enters South Side territory and sprays graffitis of red circles on all over town in hopes of sending a message to the Black Hood; instead, he has attracted Sweet Pea *wipes tears from laughing so hard at a gang member’s nickname* who threatens him with a knife and what did Archie do? He pulls a gun on him. More bad news follows Archie the next morning at school when he is suspended after the Sheriff and the principal finds Reggie’s black mask in his locker.

Remember that letter from the Black Hood that Betty didn’t want to tell her parents about? Well, she left some books behind at Jughead’s and he happens upon it after it fell out of a notebook. Why does every character in a movie or a book hide things that they don’t want others to find in a book? WHY? That is not safekeeping. Anyways, Jughead tells his girlfriend that she’s “Nancy Drew meets Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.” and alarm bells go off and the couple suddenly knows how to decode the cipher… well, Betty.

Archie asks Veronica to retrieve his gun in the school’s toilet. She blows him up about his foolishness and then tells him that she threw the gun into the river. Their quarrel is interrupted by a knock and she got the door because it was Domino’s. Joking. Joking. It was only Reggie and co. arriving at Archie’s with pizza.

The Red Circle is back on, but the Serpents show up to challenge Archie and his buddies to an old-fashioned The Outsiders rumble with the one rule being no weapons. Meanwhile, Betty decodes the cipher at the library thanks to a Nancy Drew book she used to obsessively check out as a child. The Black Hood is going to strike right where it all began: at the town hall where it all began with Betty’s speech. The town hall where a conference with the mayor is currently held. Meanwhile…

For all his tough talk, Sweet Pea is a softie. *sighs* Moving on, Betty and Jughead bursts into town hall alerting everyone present that the Black Hood is coming, and the power goes out. Betty pulls the fire alarm and saves the night. Back at the rumble, the Bulldogs are not faring well and they’re saved when Veronica fires a shot in the air with the gun she supposedly threw into the river. Archie and Veronica eventually dispose of the gun in the river with Jughead narrating: “And so the young lovers went back to where it all began, Sweetwater River. To try and end a cycle of violence.”

And wait! There is more.

Betty gets a call from Black Hood and it ends right there! 

YEARBOOK NOTES:

^ Cole Sprouse’s narrating voice is a treasure and they should preserve it. He can probably do audiobooks because some of the audiobooks that I’ve tried to listen to put me off because of the voice. The only other voice that I actually appreciate while narrating is Tom Cruise. His voice can even lull you to sleep if it calls for it.

^ Toni is bad news. That creature’s intention is to get closer to Jughead. I don’t like it. She needs to go… although it’s good for the suspense.

^ I think Jughead joining the Serpents to protect his girlfriend would eventually result in them breaking up.

^ Hiram Lodge is a psychopath and he’s playing his wife and daughter pitting them against each other.

^ I was rooting for Archie to do some growing up this season, but he’s just going about everything wrong.

^ Jughead food report: he ate cereal without milk for breakfast. You’re welcome. 🙂

Until next episode.

Entertainment then and now

Reflecting on entertainment.

THEN

I was a music lover growing up. I loved Michael Jackson, Aerosmith, Daft Punk, Backstreet Boys, soft rock music, and the occasional R&B. I used to keep abreast of my favorite musicians so when they drop new music, I’ll be the first to hear/get it. I would stay up late, my eyes glued to the TV screen watching movies until I fell asleep. I also used to write songs and I almost joined a record company in Michigan (?) as a songwriter. I’m glad that did not work out. It took me a while to open my ears to realize that the music I was listening to was not glorifying God.

NOW

It’s pretty hard for me to listen to music now. I gave away my Michael Jackson CD collection and it was not even hard to do. I don’t miss it. I don’t even look back and go ‘Man, I wished I had kept them!” I also threw out music from Madonna, Def Leppard, Ciara etc. I listen to hymns and spiritual songs, but I also have to be aware of some of these so-call Christian artists. Now and then, I’ll listen to a song with clean and pleasing lyrics.

I am now down to two TV shows which is Criminal Minds and Riverdale. A few months ago, I mentioned that I was losing my interest in movies. I watch movies once in a blue moon now if it holds my interest. The last movie I saw was American Made and I haven’t watched any movies since then. 

Now, when I want to be entertained, I pick up my Bible.

Airport lights at night. Hate the flights itself, but love getting away.

These beautiful, beautiful, beautiful videos! ❤

Printed books (especially the Bible):

It's almost the end, we are almost there. What do You say now? How will you choose?

And a copy of Tom Cruise in The Last Samurai because why not? It’s about the physical journey of a man ultimately finding peace within himself and how that journey impacts one’s life.

How was your day?

Reflecting on today.

I cannot complain because it simply is a blessing to be alive. I went to work as normal, but I did not work on the display I should’ve got done eons ago! I scheduled blog posts for the week and caught up with blogs I follow. 

Talking about God is my favorite topic and I never shy away from entertaining questions about His Word. It was the same today as I discussed our Savior and how to pray with a fellow colleague who is interested in drawing close to Him once again. Please keep her in your prayers. She is making every effort to make her way back to Him.

A friend stopped by to say hello and we got to chatting about many things and we found out that we have two things in common: we dislike magic, but we like Tom Cruise. I grinned at him and asked him, “What are the odds?” I would’ve never pegged him for a TC fan. 

The sun has set, and once again, I look towards heaven and thank God for bringing me through another day here on earth. I just finished Bible study with my sister and now we’re going to spend some time bonding. ❤

How was your day?

Reflection Week!

Let’s see how far we’ve come.

Time stopped and everything around me suddenly came to a grinding halt. In that moment, I stood still with the world. I made a promise to myself to appreciate life more and the people in it. To give as much love as I can. To do His will.

Most of all, I promise myself to love life no matter where it may take me, as I continue to help others seek the pursuit of happiness.

 :

I wrote those words last year November after I came across that photo of Tom Cruise looking out at the sea. I like attaching words to photos. 🙂 

Every now and then, we have to sit and reflect on how far we’ve come, the goals we hope to achieve in x amount of time, but most of us, we have to reflect on our growth as an individual. So this week I’ll be doing a little reflection. Join me?

Possible topics:

^ How was your day?

> Entertainment then and now

^ Look back and thank Him for bringing you through

> Am I who I want to be?

^ Living for Him.
