“Riverdale” Talk, Episode 8: The Outsiders

Episode Synopsis: After moving in with the Lodges, Polly still feels a bit unwelcome back in Riverdale. In order to lift her spirits, Betty and Veronica decide to host the mother-to-be a baby shower, even if it means having to invite Mrs.Cooper and the Blossoms. Meanwhile, Mr.Blossom puts Fred’s construction project on hold by taking his crew. As Archie and friends begin to help out, one of Fred’s rivals sends a threatening message to stop the project all together.

My Thoughts: I decided to try something new for this discussion and write mini blurbs of my thoughts during the episode!

Maybe Jughead can take his jacket off more often???

I think it would be in the best interest of Jughead for him to keep wearing a tank top while working for Fred. His ripped arms will agree.

OH MY GOSH MOOSE, NOT MOOSE!

Moose is one of my favorite characters in the Archie comic book series and seeing him get beat up was so heartbreaking for me. However, I’m still trying to figure how he recovered so easily after being hit by a crowbar.

I’m trying to get on the Betty and Jughead ship, but I think I left my boarding pass at home

As a reader of the comics, I’m having trouble picturing Betty and Jughead as a couple. I do like seeing the more personal and intimate side of Jughead though!

Okay Archie, let’s just waltz into the baby shower, accusing our friend’s dad of being in a gang and sabotaging Fred’s company. Cute stroller by the way, Polly!

Oh Archie, why must you be so melodramatic? I understand that your dad’s livelihood is at risk, but there’s this great saying that goes, “Think before you speak (preferably before you crash a baby shower)”.

It’s official, Mr and Mrs.Cooper are the worst.

While Mrs.Cooper does begin to redeem herself in this episode, Mr.Cooper  is another story. He refuses to welcome his future grandchild because of their “Blossom blood”.

Yup, I left my boarding pass at home. Sorry, but not sorry, I won’t be boarding the Betty and Jughead express today.

As much as I love this show and the direction it’s headed, I feel like the CW sat back and said, “Hm, there’s not a romantical relationship on this show yet? We can change that!” While I appreciate how much Betty and Jughead care about each other, I just find their relationship so cringey. I almost lost it when Betty announces that she believes anything Jughead says and proceeds to kiss him, accompanied by bright light and background music of course.

Mrs.Cooper: “And I think by now you know what I’m capable of”.

ME: *Screaming and having ALL the fangirl feels*

My mouth dropped when Mrs.Cooper threatens Mr.Cooper to get out of this house with this line. She has to have murdered Jason, right???

My Rating: 5/5 stars. While a ripped Jughead may or may not have influenced my rating, this is the Riverdale episode that I needed! “The Outsiders” reminded me so much of the show’s earlier episodes because the dark and mysterious vibe was back.
