The residents of Riverdale should probably think about the past and reflect on whether they have done anything that could put them on the outs with the Black Hood.
Betty continued to work with the villain on Riverdale Season 2 Episode 6, and it became apparent that the killing is far from over.
When the episode got underway, Betty rushed to Nick’s hotel room and expected to find a grisly sight. Instead, she found him being arrested by Sheriff Keller for alleged assault.
The killer informed Betty that Nick was not on his hit-list because his sins were nothing compared to the crimes of people in the town.
The killer told Betty it was time to take down the dealer of jingle-jangle, the drug that every teen in the town seemed to be hooked on.
While most had heard tales of the Sugarman, the person who apparently crafted the drug and released it to the masses, she did not know where to look.
She turned to Cheryl because her father had a huge association with the drug dealers of the town before his death. When Cheryl tried to find out the truth from her mother, she was stopped in her tracks.
Cheryl recalled an old story that her mother used to tell her to scare her when Clifford was meeting with the elusive drug dealer, but Penelope shut her daughter down, saying that she was a liar.
Then, Penelope met up with the Lodges and learned that Cheryl was almost assaulted by Nick. Penelope claimed she wanted it to be kept quiet, and on a more sickening note, said that nothing really happened to her daughter.
Is this mother the worst one on all of TV? It sure seems that way. Cheryl then bumped into the man who tried to rape her, and he said that her mother accepted hush money in exchange for Cheryl keeping quiet.
This sent Cheryl on the warpath as she returned home and took the check her mother had from the St. Clair family until her mother opened up about who the elusive drug dealer was.
Veronica decided she did not want Nick to do anything to anyone else, so she confided in her father and mother that he tried to attack her. This was met with words of wisdom from her parents, who said that they would not accept a dime from the family.
Later, it was revealed that the family was run off the road and that Nick will be in the hospital for several months. Yes, the Lodges definitely orchestrated the whole thing, and it was well deserved.
Meanwhile, Archie told Jughead the Southside High was going to be raided by Mayor McCoy, and they each agreed to get rid of the Ghoulies to restore normalcy around the town.
Jug and Archie got into a car race with the Ghoulies, but Archie set the Ghoulies up, and they were arrested. This meant that they were going to jail, but Jug was not impressed because it was a short-term solution.
The big twist at the close of the hour was that the seemingly nice teacher from Southside High was the drug maker and he was murdered in prison by the Black Hood.
Oh, and we can’t forget Betty realizing that she’s in control of the whole situation after telling her friends about what happened.
Will she live to tell the tale again?
We have no idea.
