I did some digging and found out young Hiram is Michael Consuelos, Mark Consuelos' (actor playing Hiram) and Kelly Ripa's son. Young Hal is played by Zachary Hayden, who didn't have much listed on IMDb.
And agreed, this episode was a lot of fun. As soon as the retro title card popped up, I was all in.
So perfectly normal? The show has always been an anchronistic mash of different styles and eras.
If the murderer is one of the midnight club it's either the guy with the glasses I don't remember or Reggie's dad, there's no way they're going to have another regular parent be the killer after Clifford and Hal. Or maybe the killer from the past was a random person and in the present it's Ethel.
Finally finished the episode after turning it off halfway through on Wednesday and I really enjoyed it. Also wanted to listen to Cry Me A Riverdale podcast and not be spoiled about the episode. BTW I highly recommend the podcast. Found it through something else one of the hosts does and have been listening for awhile now.
I don't think there's any chance one of the midnight club did this. What if the principal had a kid and they are trying to get revenge years later. I also find it strange how this gargoyle person is able to get that costume into a hospital and a school and no one really notices.
I thought this was one of the more enjoyable episodes recently. Probably because they were letting high school kids be high school kids. I found it interesting that this episode suggested that the McCoy/Keller affair was an extension of a forbidden love situation years earlier.
This episode of the breakfast club was pretty good. I was laughing out loud at them running around the school in their costumes. Especially Fred flourishing his cape. Now I’m starting to be more interested in getting to the bottom of this tree devil mystery. Doily’s dad being Sprucifer the gargoyle ent would be too much like Cliff. No clue where this is headed.
My favourite aspect of that episode was that it totally made me forget Archie is in juvie. Not excited to get back to juvie Shawshank Redemption starring ginger Forrest Gump.
This show continues to get sillier, but it is what it is at this point and I'm interested in finding out more about the G&G plot no matter how absurd it is. At least they're trying to have some fun with it.
The idea that they'd all be so into the game, or that the whole school would now be so into it, is kind of funny and hard to believe. But we'll see where it goes.
I caught up this morning, after hearing about the 90s episode. It was certainly fun and weird, but was a strange mishmash of 80s and 90s, not just 80s. I liked the IT reference on the cast, seeing Anthony Michael Hall, and what I believe was the Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors theme song but could be wrong about. There was also some 80s music there, though.
Now that I have Netflix, I won't have to rely on saving it on KTLA every week. I missed Supernatural because of a news report (though news of the fires and shooting was certainly more important than a TV show). I wish Supernatural was still on Netflix Canada, because I don't know how I'm going to watch that episode now, due to region blocking online.
Interesting episode. Hopefully we've moved on from the prison plotline.
Hermoine was so fucking dumb I need to call her out.
Your husband framed a underage kid for murder, paid people off to lie so he's put in prison, and then forced him to fight in a underground fight club and almost had him killed and your blaming Veronica for trying to save his life? Please stfu.
Also, what happened to the all-dad team that was gonna help Archie out/fix his prison problem?
