“As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a poutine-loving gangster.” A particularly dynamic Riverdale introduces Archie to the world of crime, “confirms” that Veronica’s in over her head, and properly reunites Bughead—and that’s all before Hiram’s life is threatened for letting Pop Tate serve curd-less poutine! It’s a wild one. Dial M For Maple dissects it all, including that shocking final scene, and Chic’s suspiciously familiar visitor from the Bijou. Plus, Marah and Cameron realize how wrong they were about that upcoming musical episode. Oh well, karma’s a bitch!
