Never say Evernever! On this week’s Riverdale, we finally get our proper introduction to Chad Michael Murray’s Edgar Evernever and, as expected, this guy’s a charmer! But he and the Farmies have other tricks up their sleeves: Apparently they’re helping Cheryl, Alice, and others talk to dead people? We have no idea how that works, but nevertheless, Betty “Snooper” and Dial M For Maple are on the case. Hosts Marah and Cameron theorize The Farm’s ulterior motives, ponder when they’ll be seeing Hal Cooper again, and praise the episode’s bravura drug raid scene. Plus, the surprising inclusion of a new Grimes song inspires Marah to tell the tale of a poorly attended Coachella cruise.

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.
