50 Thoughts Watching Riverdale (Season 1) Finale

A subversive take on Archie and his friends, exploring small town life, the darkness and weirdness bubbling beneath Riverdale's wholesome facade. 

As therapeutical as this episode might have been and all things considered, it was also quite tiring. A distressing experience that I wanted to share with you.
Here are the 50 thoughts I had watching this final episode from season 1:  

1. That tight grey T-Shirt is everything *HOT*
2. Archie being in the mayor's office is a joke #Useless 
3. Mama Blossom might be the evilest of them all... 
4. Is Archie really trying to say something to Betty? WTF!?
5. That tight grey T-Shirt again! 
6. #SomethingWickedThisWayComes 
7. Some girls might want to be a burger. 
8. Multiverse plot on a Romantic walk in the snow is my kind of romantic walk. 
10. How many secrets though? 
11. Mama Blossom is pure EVIL! Cheryl is definitely looking sick, right? A headache maybe? 
12. A BROTHER? #SecretBrother 
13. Slide to the left 
14. HONEY? Don't honey her, please! 
15. Cold as ice 

16. OMG! Blood. #Useful 
17. How Prince Charming of him
18. Lodge Home for the poor 
19. McBeth! Finally a good cultural reference! 
20. LIAR! #UsefulLiar 
21. Here comes the singing! #UsefulLiar #LocalHero 
22. Looks good. Play guitar and football. Knows how to sing - and probably dance as well. #Annoying 

23. Jughead Jones as the soul of Riverdale. Let me tell you, Cole Sprouse is a lot more than just the soul of this town... 
24. Betty is my fav 
25. No good story ever began with milkshakes.      
26. #Purify 
27. HOLLY MOLLY. The hat is off. I REPEAT THE HAT IS OFF! 
28. OMG. 
29. "I love you, Betty Cooper"
30. OMG 
31. I'm dying
32. "Jughead Jones WE love you!" 
33. I can't breathe
34. *KISS*
35. I might be dead
36. Good editing there. 
37. This room is too dark. Way too dark. 

38. SHIT. Who the heck is it? 
39. Damn boy, you look good in leather!  

41. "Hey, Casanova" COOLEST DAD EVER! 
42. Wash his hands? How can he wash his hands with a cast? 
43. THAT FACE #SureImDead 
44. Oh no.
45. Don't. Don't. Don't
46. Stay RIGHT where you are! 
47. NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! 
50. FUCK. 

Overall, the last shot - no pun intended - of the episode will set in motion another outlandish mystery for Season 2. Betty is still and more than ever my favourite character, who now has a secret brother. As Betty tells it, he's in his mid-20s; as Veronica tells it, he's a blond Adonis. As I tell it, he's my new favourite Season 2 cast member.
