I finished Riverdale season 2 and oh my god I loved it


I liked this season more than the other one because of all the gang wars and serpents and bulldogs but I also hated it because of Hiram fucking Lodge


So I actually wrote notes on every episode because I got so confused with the whole Chic and Cooper Blossom bullshit so


spoilers, so. many. spoilers ahead. also I don't have enough photos to put on here but like look at a tree if your eyes get tired I'm sorry


Allow me to attempt to explain season 2 of Riverdale


TW: SA, murder


EPISODE 1

Jughead joined the serpents, Archie's dad is alive after being shot in the season 1 finale, Cheryl almost killed her mom (I wish she actually did it), and her mom maybe killed her dad and staged it as a suicide???


EPISODE 2

Miss Grundy AKA PREDATOR is dead! Everyone cheers!! Betty blackmailed Cheryl using the video of her dad killing Jason and made her testify FOR FP and not against him.


EPISODE 3-5

Archie starts working with Hiram Lodge I think? Betty got a letter from BH (black hood) and he tells her to publish an article exposing Alice (Betty's mom) for being from the Southside, Nick Sinclaire arrives and is a sleazebag (he DRUGGED Cheryl and tried to r*pe her)


EPISODE 6

Cheryl's mom is a bitch because she victim-blames her daughter and got hush money from Nick's family. Jughead and Toni kiss but they agree not to get together. There's a drag race and Ghoulies (the Serpents' rivals) get arrested. Southside High gets shut down.


EPISODE 7-8

Jughead makes a deal with Penny Peabody and delivers drugs; Cheryl stalks Josie and sends her creepy shit; Sheriff Keller is fucking Mayor Macoy. Then FP gets released from prison, the Conway murders are mentioned, Veronica and Archie broke up cause she couldn't say "I love you".


EPISODE 9

So BH kidnapped Joseph Conway, the surviving member of the Conway family/murders and it turns out he's the school janitor. Jughead and the teenage serpents cut out Penny's tattoo, i did not feel bad she fucking deserved it


EPISODE 10-11

The students from the Southside are coming to Riverdale High and Jughead starts a club so they can hang out in school without getting yelled at. Betty finds her long-lost brother and just...welcomes him home (girl you literally don't know him). Chic (the long-lost brother) is giving off weird and creepy vibes.


EPISODE 12-13

i know they look like they got married but they didn't, the show was teasing us

Archie starts working with Hiram, Betty comes home to find A DEAD MAN in their house and Alice cleaning up the crime scene. Basically this dude came looking for Chic and he killed the guy and because Alice is a boy mom she helps cover up THE MURDER


BETTY AND HER MOM ARE ACCOMPLICES TO MURDER, BETTY YOU SAY YOU'RE SMART BUT LOOK WHAT YOU'VE DONE


Anyway FP comes over to help them get rid of the body and push dead guy's car into a lake


EPISODE 14 WAS FILLER SO EPISODE 15-16

Chic is starting to lash out, Archie's dad is running for mayor and Archie is being groomed by Hiram to do illegal shit for him and they form a blood pact. Most of the main cast runs for school president and Cheryl's mom sends her to this nunnery/shady & abusive rehabilitation centre for troubled teens, and also Cheryl's dad had a twin brother wtf


EPISODE 17

we are nearing the end but it gets so much more complicated. Veronica and Toni break Cheryl out of the shady place, Cheryl and Toni kiss *me screaming like a banshee*, and more gang wars happen it's just chaos


EPISODE 18

It was a musical episode. It was cringey I did not like it but shit happens because Midge dies. Like the curtains open and her body is pinned to the wall with knives and a message written by BH in her blood


EPISODE 19

Nick (the sleazebag) kidnaps Archie and tells Veronica to sleep with him to get Archie back. Veronica drugs him (slay) and gets ransom money from Nick's family.


Also Chic is not Betty's real brother (who could've thought) He killed Charles (the real brother) and pretended to be him, Betty ends up sending him to the BH to get killed


Also also Charles (who's dead) is actually FP and Alice's son, ohhh the drama


Also also also Betty starts suspecting her dad of being the BH


EPISODE 20

Fangs (a serpent) reveals he was hooking up with Midge, he gets arrested but worry not he gets out later in the episode. The mayoral debate happens except BH tries to shoot up the place but Betty's dad was there so BH can't possibly be him


So much shit happens, riots and fights are breaking out, Fangs gets shot and Hiram is being shady like always. The town is in pieces it's complete chaos


EPISODE 21

Cheryl knows how to use a bow and arrow, the serpents and the school football team trash the school and the principal just comes in like "stop fucking up my school" he is so random and funny omg


Jughead makes a deal with Hiram and goes to find Penny & the ghoulies who have teamed up together and goes "ok yall beat me up and leave the rest of the gang alone" so they do and he almost dies


Betty's dad reveals himself to be BH (who could've thought) and now let me explain the Cooper family history oh boy


SO HERE WE GO

I drew this chart but I'll explain it

So it started many years ago, there were two Blossom brothers who we'll call B1 and B2. B1 kills B2 and changes his name to Cooper.


Then this guy Conway found out about this and blackmailed B1, so B1 broke into his house and killed his family, but one of them was left alive-Joseph Conway.


B1's son, Hal Cooper, gaslit Joseph into naming the wrong man as the murderer. Joseph then changed his name and started working as the school janitor.


Then Hal met Alice in high school and they started dating, but Alice had a fling with FP and she gave birth to Charles, who she gave up for adoption. Later Hal and Alice got married and had Polly and Betty.


Charles grew up and met Chic, they were roommates but then they got in a fight one day and Chic killed him and then pretended to be Betty's brother.


That's what happened, it could've been summed up so quickly but I got so confused because the show is confusing as hell.


EPISODE 22

Hal gets arrested, FP retires as leader of the serpents and Jughead becomes serpent king. kinda happy ending, but they end on a cliffhanger and ARCHIE GETS ARRESTED BECAUSE OF HIRAM GOD I HATE HIM


STUFF I LIKED

The Serpents- I JUST LOVE THEM SO MUCH IT'S SO HEARTWARMING SOMETIMES SEEING THEM DO ILLEGAL SHIT BUT THEY'RE FAMILY OKAY


CHERYL BLOSSOM, YOU'RE A BITCH BUT I LOVE YOU


STUFF I HATED

HIRAM MOTHERFUCKING LODGE I DESPISE HIM WITH EVERY BONE IN MY BODY I HOPE HE DIES


3am and I'm still awake
