I came here to see if anyone picked up on a nice reference to the comics. Riverdale in this episode was celebrating it's 75th anniversary: Archie comics is also celebrating it's 75th anniversary. I thought that was a nice touch, especially since I just picked up the Archie comics 75th anniversary digest. A major story arc for season 2 seems like it will be Jughead's continual removal from the core group and Archie trying to pull him back in. I'm OK with that, it's something they've been working to all season, he's always been presented as the outsider, now he's finally putting himself on the outside. Since I got to read several comics from the series over the years (thanks to the aforementioned digest) I'm glad they're introducing Betty's brother into the show, Chic Cooper. The only comic I saw him in though was Lil Archie, where he was Archie's camp counselor. I'm sure he'll be quite the different character on the show though I'm kind of hoping for a longer season next time around, while this one was nice and taut, I think more episodes can explore the character's themselves more. For instance I bet we at least get a lot of background into Blossom's drug operation, and of course what becomes of Cheryl: is she in control or going crazy? Also, I want to give a shout out to @Christopher, thanks for highlighting how the core characters are genuinely good while the people around them are the crazy ones, I think it's one of the reasons the show has pulled me in so much. The character's feel true to their comic book roots, even if the stories are far from what we'd see in the panels.
