Gina Torres arrives to fix everyone’s lives.
Extreme highs and lows come with the first-love territory, and the softer moment that Toni and Cheryl spend on the couch is quite sweet. I’m often questioning why these two are together, and I think the real answer is less romantic and more troubling. Toni is a caretaker to Cheryl, and Cheryl is desperate to be loved by just about anyone.
Yes, Cheryl Blossom is the most interesting character right now AND NOT JUST BECAUSE SHE’S GAY (but that helps).
Last night’s Cheryl and Toni-less episode, while not all bad, was a bit blah and had very little of the content that I know you all come here to read about (gay stuff). So instead, let’s play a game of Top, Bottom, or Switch, shall we?
It’s Halloween in Riverdale — let’s have a freakin seance!!!! With a cursed puppet!!!!
The show has all the subtlety of a freak show. It’s horror-camp. It’s musical theater. And I absolutely mean all of those things as compliments.
The failures of family, the joys of friendship, and a nonsensical but incredible musical number—just another day in Riverdale!
The show’s season four premiere serves as a Luke Perry tribute and a reminder of the compelling themes pulsating beneath Riverdale’s chaos.
Don’t you hate when you’re a teen and your teen friend’s murderous mother traps you in a dining room underneath her maple farmhouse to tell you all about her diabolical plan to destroy your hometown and accuses you of terrible sins that you must pay penance for in the form of an overnight game of life-or-death challenges in the woods?
Distinctly queer camp is increasingly part of Riverdale’s DNA. The gothic-glam horror keeps on outdoing itself.
Plus, Cheryl and Toni slow dance!
Oh great, now Toni’s in the farm, too.
All lesbian breakups on TV should be told in song and dance in my opinion.
Cheryl Blossom really encapsulates that “Game Of Thrones But Make It Teen Drama” essence that represents Riverdale at its finest.
“Archers, draw; anchor your hand at the corner of your mouth; use your dominant eye. Now, relax my pretties. Release.”
It’s the horniest, gayest episode of Riverdale yet!
When was the last time the two queer women of Riverdale got any semblance of character development?
The dads of Riverdale are acting out.
Riverdale’s return to television after its winter break starts the way more episodes of Riverdale should start: with lesbian sex.
Teen asylum breakouts, maple syrup torture, hot moms who weld, mass seizures — this show really does have it all.
