As Riverdale has wrapped for another season, were revisiting key scenes from the shows past. Today we’re looking at S2s “Carrie: The Musical” episode with our ranking of the fourteen weirdest moments from the episode – be sure to enjoy them over a thick milkshake.

14. “You can’t even see my bruises anymore”

Well now, how about that for a convenient plot contrivance? Miraculously, Veronica’s (Camila Mendes) makeup skills managed to hide all of Archie’s (K.J. Apa) bruises, swollen skin, and cuts from his previous savage beatdown for the entire episode.

13. Betty inadvertently introduced the best euphemism for murder we’ve heard in a while

May “I took him to the bus station” be forever used in every situation in which someone willingly sacrifices a man pretending to be their half brother to a serial killer who might be their dad.

12. Fangs also inadvertently introduced the best euphemism for boning a study partner

No shit, Fangs (Drew Ray Tanner)! No shit.

11. Cheryl’s zinger about Betty’s dad

When your cousin suggests her dad may be the killer the whole town is looking for, do you grimace in horror? Show concerned support? Or bring up the fact he’s one of the more pathetic, clumsy John’s who has been boinking your mom for the past few months? Definitely the latter.


10. A moment of respect for Hermione Lodge’s pink velour tracksuit, please

It’s so early 00’s Paris Hilton and we’re living for it.

9. Joaquin is back!

Okay, not weird but just awesome. How we’ve missed him!


8. Reggie hides his face (but not his letterman jacket) before attacking the Serpents

May as well not bother with that balaclava, son! We’re not exactly experts on being a violent vigilante gang of jocks. But we’re inclined to think that your extremely distinguishable letterman jacket is a big giveaway about your identity, Reggie (Charles Melton).

7. Reggie goes completely off the deep end

Look at those eyes; Reggie has left the building, ladies and gentlemen.

6. Apparently teenagers are making all the major mafioso business deals today

Over milkshakes in Pops’s, no less. Seems legit! Definitely nothing sketchy or unusual about that.

5. Papa Poutine has a son called Small Fry!

We can’t breathe. This is too good. Also, we’re sure Archie is quaking in his boots at the thought of “Small Fry” coming for him.

4. Archie discovers a new turn-on

Apparently hearing his girlfriend say she’s supporting his father for Mayor is his new shortcut to the bone zone. Whatever works for you, Archie!

3. Fangs is shot

Would it have really been such an inconvenience for the kid to receive a police escort against the rowdy reckless mob baiting for his blood outside the station? Apparently so.

2. Cheryl comes face to face with the Black Hood

We honestly don’t fancy his chances against her. The Black Hood may be a bloodthirsty killer, but Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch) has one-liners that could snap a heart in half.

1. Cheryl is reading Books of Blood by Clive Barker

It may simply be a cool prop to tie in to the overall horror theme of the season, but Barker’s classic collection of horror shorts also features a relevant story called “Sex, Death, and Starshine”.

The story features a theater production in which the lead is swapped out for another actor (like what happened with Cheryl & Midge in the previous episode “Carrie: The Musical”) and a man with an “obscured face” (like the Black Hood) who turns out to be undead. Could the Black Hood be Cheryl’s supposedly dead father?
