‘Shippers beware, you’re in for a scare: This week’s Riverdale puts its couples through the ringer, leaving Dial M For Maple’s Marah and Cameron in a state of shock. Thankfully, another triumphant entrance by Alice Cooper helps lift their spirits so that they can gab about FP’s new lease on life, the mysteries of the Riverdale Reaper, and the art of the sad Serpent Dance. Plus, our favorite listener-submitted theories!

If you’re a Riverdale fan, please give Dial M For Maple a chance. You can subscribe here, or even drop us a review over on Apple Podcasts. Also, we’re always taking comments and questions on Twitter. Just hit up @DialMForMaple, and we’ll see it.
