After the first episode, I wasn’t convinced but I thought I’d try the next couple of episodes and see what they were like, before making a decision on whether to continue watching it or not. I’m glad I continued watching it because it got better with every episode. The characters are likeable as well.


I felt like the character relationships were a bit messy between whose going to end up together. Archie went round a few girls this season until he ended up with Veronica. Although it doesn’t seem like he truly likes her after the finale episode because he kept giving longing glances in Betty’s direction. This really annoyed me because at the start of the season he didn’t like her and now she’s happy with Jughead, he wants her. It’s also not fair on Veronica. I really like her and it seems like she really likes Archie so I hope he doesn’t hurt her. I also really like the relationship between Betty and Jughead and I don’t want that to be ruined. I don’t want a love triangle to happen because its been done so many times and I’m fed up of the same storylines all the time.

Chapter Ten: The Lost Weekend

The show is quite a lot darker than it may seem to many people. There are a few issues that it faces. Some disturbing ones too. It sure has a lot of surprises in store for you. Now that the show has finished its first season, it’s a great show to binge watch. I kind of wish I’d have waited because you forget stuff when you wait each week for a new episode. I also think it is the type of show that, with more than one viewing, you will pick up on so much more than you missed the first time.

Chapter Thirteen: The Sweet Hereafter

I think the show will go on for a few seasons but I can’t see it lasting more than four. The show has been renewed for a season two which will air next fall. I’m really excited for it because it left on quite a cliffhanger. Let’s look at some of the burning questions we have after watching the finale episode. This means there will be spoilers so stop reading now if you haven’t watched the final episode.


Who Shot Fred Andrews?

It seems like Fred gets shot whilst protecting his son from a masked man in the diner. There is also the question of whether he will survive as well. Apparently, Archie will go down a dark path in season two so that could suggest Fred dies.

Who Planted The Evidence To Frame FP?

We still don’t know who framed FP and planted the gun in his trailer. He is also still stuck in jail at the end of the season. Will he get out in season two?

Will We Meet Betty’s Brother?

It was revealed that Betty’s mum had another baby just out of high school but she gave him up for adoption. This could be an interesting storyline going into season two.

Will We Get Answers Regarding Betty’s Darkside?

There is a scene where Betty digs her nails so hard into her hand that it draws blood. She also goes a little crazy early on in the season when she tries to drown a member of the school. There’s definitely more to be explored there.

What Will Happen To Jughead?

He has been moved to the South Side now that there is no one to look after him. I think it’s so harsh that his mother won’t let him stay with her when his sister is there. Talk about favouritism.

I’m sure there are a few other questions too but these are the main ones. Season two should be very exciting. It’s a great show to watch if you’re a teenager or young adult.

You can stream the whole season on Netflix!
