The bobbed wig may be gone, but Dark Betty is back in full force on this week’s Riverdale. Yes, it’s a tense episode all around with Betty’s mom-napping, Archie’s roughest boxing match yet, and a new threat in the form of rabid, drugged-out townsfolk inching us closer to our Afterlife With Archie zombie fantasies. In this week’s Dial M For Maple, we heed Dr. Curdle, Jr.’s ominous warnings and make the case for still being “Team Betty.” Plus, Marah and Cameron speculate: There’s no way Edgar and Evelyn Evernever are the people—or the ages—they say they are, right?

If you’re a Riverdale fan, you’ll definitely want to give Dial M For Maple a listen. You can subscribe here, and can even drop us a review over on Apple Podcasts. As always, we’re taking comments and questions on Twitter, so just hit up @DialMForMaple, and we’ll see it.
