Mrs Chipping doesn’t think he was having an affair, Moose explains that he was recruited to start Stonewall and then leave for the military by Chipping. Plus the pressure from Bretts video. Is this a mf military pusher ring? 
    Donna’s confession tape, which she snuck out, is her crying while talking about being assaulted. But she is using the same language and is talking about a teacher who doesn’t exist. Is she behind all the stonewall stuff? Hell isn’t bad enough for people who lie about being assaulted. Fuck this show for doing this. 
     
    Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind/Groundhog Day, Someone Get this Kid a New Plot
    I’m a better writer, I’m a better competitor, I’m a better man. And we all know the good qualities of a writer/man is A. Fencing, B. Fist Fighting, and C. Chess
    Not All Mercenaries Are Evil (But This One Is)
    Frank wants to pull an Archie and escape to Canada, lot of punching because Ted is out to kill him. Lots of smashing of heads, Kevin appears briefly. 
     
    Triggers and Tickles
    “What we call in the tickle business as a world class squeeler” gross. This was a rare Toni/Cheryl set up that I enjoyed, I think because Toni had some screen time by herself instead of just saying babe all the time. 
     
    Katy Keene Spin Off
    Its very colorful, and I hated it.

    S4E11: A Deep Dive into Quiz Show Fever, Not Fully Sexual Sex Club, and Tickling

    S4E11: A Deep Dive into Quiz Show Fever, Not Fully Sexual Sex Club, and Tickling

    “The only person not feeling Quiz Show Fever Was My Pal Archie Andrews” Mostly because you know facts are not his friends. And he is super attached to his uncle, but only MEN understand MEN and their NEEDS. Archie’s mother would never be able to be a guiding force because she isn’t FRED. Full disclosure, I didn’t watch this plotline that closely, but finally no football/fighting criminals
    Kevin gets into Tickling https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tickled
    Finally a Kevin plot line and it is ripped from the 2015 headlines, online tickling videos. He ropes Fangs in because he's a good friend even if they did both join a cult together
     
    Rum Wars and a non sexual Sex Club
    After Cheryl and Veronica get a scientist (Science teacher) to confirm that their maple-based rum is different enough from Hiram’s molasses-based rum, the rum war is back on. 
    They keep Le Bonne Nuit open as a distraction and move their rum business to the Maple Club. 
    Finally the Quiz Bowl to End All Quiz Bowls
    Betty proves once and for all that she is as dumb as that pony tail is tight.

    S4E10: A Deep Dive into Violence Against Children, Patenting Sugar Products, and the Possibilities of Vibes

    S4E10: A Deep Dive into Violence Against Children, Patenting Sugar Products, and the Possibilities of Vibes

    Caitlin gets heated talking about HP Lovecraft, Brett's possible and yet problematic sexual tension with Jughead, and the way this show handles violence against children. Riverdale can not handle the complex issues it lightly touches the surface of. Mari gets horny remembering how hot all the parents are, a clear sign that we are older than the target demo of this show. 
    Overall: Good job balancing High School Drama plots with high stakes, felt very season 1. HOWEVER I have seen all of these plots before. This show might be on its last legs, needs to be put out of its misery. 
     
    Jughead has a recycled serpent plotline now at Stonewall. Also where is Jellybean??
    Frank gives drugs to a teen, Archie is at first upset but then is okay with it. Monroe may become a drug addict but at least he got to go to college first
    Fred’s DUI is fake, its really Frank, and that is when I truly gave up on this show
    Are the football players hurting people? Yes, Does Betty immediately go to Brett without evidence, yes. Betty then pitches next week’s episode: Quiz Bowl
    Sabrina crossover, would be more excited if I cared
    Veronica, how do you patent Rum? She goes undercover as Monica at a party (y tho?) in a “classic B and V caper”. Keying your dad’s car is amature hour. Teaming up with Cheryl in the maple business, Jesus how long did this take??
    Appletree wants to treat them like a cheer team, how dare she! Cheryl steals back attention for another song and dance

    Queen of the Flies: Ep 8 Loud Vomit and Quiet Bleeding

    Queen of the Flies: Ep 8 Loud Vomit and Quiet Bleeding

    Rabbit done f****d up. Everyone starts eating her pie and she panics and eats a good third of the pie
    This improv troupe is a crime, don’t get me started on improv and The artist formally known as Marilyn Manson now to be known as Kathy Griffin, take it a little too far with an attack on Big Eyes’ rules and Madam President’s death. 
    Big Eyes is royally pissed but knows she can’t bring in Kathy Griffin, she then starts vomiting up her will to live. Also Will is no where to be found because he is getting lost in Alien Face’s face hole. 
    People are streaming into the clinic where Doctor Alien Face is giving everyone pedialyte. MacGyver and Alien Face place a life saving IV into Rabbit. This show is definitely not Greys Anatomy level of medical. Rabbit is prepared for death and has Mary Magdalene pray over her but the bad news is that Rabbit makes it and now has to live with her crimes #verysad 
    Meanwhile across the clinic, Preggers is having some pregnancy problems and Ginger forgot to tell Alan Rickman about his baby. This whole thing is so dumb. Just tell Alan Rickman that Preggers knows this is a sham wedding situation and f*****g tell Preggers you met a guy, literally no one has to be upset. Being a father doesn’t stop you from being with Alan Rickman. Of Course Alan Rickman gets the wrong idea and flips out. Or tell him Sam isn’t the bio dad 
    MacGyver puts on his CSI:New Ham hat and tries to uncover what made everyone sick, they hit up the usual suspects: Money Bags, CNS, and a new suspect Kathy Griffin, who I don’t think should be on that list besides her improv technique she hasn’t done anything suspicious
    CNS covers for Rabbit, and is honestly impressed that she tried to kill him. 
    Kathy Griffin is brought in for questioning, and gets her period in the wine cellar, the boys stay and watch her change, which is not great guys, like thats f****d, she isn’t even a real suspect, very stanford prison experiment   
    Dr. Alien Face is upset that after their sexcapade Will stuck by Big Eyes the whole night but girl you are better than these boys, find a new dude. But nope, she helps Will process his feeeeeelings and then goes to Money Bags to get him out of his depression bed. Dr. Alien Face deserves better
    Kathy Griffin confronts Big Eyes about being treated inhumanely (going to side with Kathy on this one) and Big Eyes tells her to get over it. Which yeah Big Eyes killed someone but also being a leader means listening and you know “theres a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women” etc. Big Eyes announces there will be a mayor race and allows Will into her bed for the night- just cuddles for now.

    Queen of the Flies Ep 7 Pumpkins, Carrots, and Food Poisoning

    Queen of the Flies Ep 7 Pumpkins, Carrots, and Food Poisoning

    Thanksgiving is fast approaching, but before they can even focus on the holiday, Will has some upsetting news: the food they have will last them through the upcoming winter and spring, but by summer they’re going to start running out. There’s already a plan in motion for an alternative solution, and Alan Rickman is going to lead an expedition into the woods to try and find land suitable for farming. The kids are quick to point out none of them know how to farm, but just like they’ve learned how to do everything else, they'll learn how to do this.

    Alien Face brings Preggers by the clinic to do an ultrasound on her, showing her the baby for the first time

    All of Adventure Scout’s declarations of love get Alan Rickman thinking, as he’s got someone special like that in his life and he wants to act on his feelings.
    So, off to the library, Alan Rickman goes to talk to… Ginger. Alan Rickman has secretly been learning sign language so he can talk to Ginger, but Alan Rickman accidentally learned British Sign Language, not American Sign Language. Ginger can’t understand what he’s saying. It’s a cute moment between the two of them, but Ginger doesn’t immediately connect that Alan Rickman is doing this for him.
    After spending a day going over farming techniques together, Alan Rickman and Ginger then sleep together.

    Meanwhile, Money Bags is dealing with a bout of sadness and depression (also, some withdrawal symptoms since it’s not like there’s going to be a new supply of drugs in the city). The Guards go to visit him, but he refuses to get out of bed and work. This leads Big Eyes to go and visit him, and she basically tells him that if he doesn’t get up and start working his rations are going to cut in half.
    Thanksgiving is now upon us, and while everyone else is getting ready to cook and eat communally, Rabbit and Chicken Noodle Soup are locked away in their house. Rabbit, who has suffered more than enough already, decides she’s going to take matters into her own hands and decides to pour antifreeze into the pumpkin pie in hopes of killing him.
    When it’s time for dinner, Chicken Noodle Soup isn’t that excited to actually eat what Rabbit’s prepared, and she suggests they start with dessert first. 

    Big Eyes renames West Ham as New Ham, since technically they’re the first settlers here. And it’s now their first Thanksgiving.
    The Society is also still really pushing the Alien Face-Will-Big Eyes love triangle, and Alien Face and Will decide to meet up after Thanksgiving, breaking curfew.
    But back at Thanksgiving, Rabbit and Chicken Noodle Soup show up and before she can stop them, her poisoned pumpkin pie is whisked away for the dessert table. Rabbit sits in silence with Chicken Noodle Soup, as she watches it from afar.

    Queen of the Flies Ep 6 Marriage Proposals and Death Squads

    Queen of the Flies Ep 6 Marriage Proposals and Death Squads

    They straight up kill a dude. Alan Rickman couldn’t do it so Big Eyes steps in.
    Big Eyes and her Big Eyebrows have big problems. There are too many people to watch and not enough military police to watch them. Adventure Scout pushes her to make a choice, but deciding to kill people is hard.
    Mary Magdalene is playing a real Lady MacBeth with Adventure Scout to take more power. But she is also anti-death penalty, she wants to keep them in prison.
    Will is sleeping in Big Eye’s room, they talk a little about Kelly but they are vibing more and more.
    Left Field is being a little shit and won’t eat, honestly this sort of solves your problems if he dies as a hunger strike situation. Alan Rickman communicates that people are worried Big Eyes is not a strong leader. Preggers voices her concern that they are doing this in secret.
    Money bags come over to a very sad dinner party to apologize for his hate speech lecture, but she kicks him out. Because she killed someone today
    Ginger checks on Preggers. “It was a mistake, no one you know so just leave it at that, sleeping with some a*****e at a party” Sam just says I am the father, I want a family. Preggers, its big and its forever. Little Blended Families. I love you, I want a child, this could be my only shot
    God they are too cute
    Adventure Scout proposes to Mary Magdalene and they have sex
    Big Eyes confronts Will about how she didn’t want to kill Left Field, but too little too late, you decided. She then goes on a whole monologue about her dead as shit sister
