A heist is afoot! In an homage to crime capers, this week’s Riverdale assembles the team to bust Archie out of prison, and it feels like the show firing on all cylinders. There are wigs, and abs, and motorcycle chases, and over-the-top Jughead narration—what more could you want? After Dial M For Maple debriefs the mission, Cameron and Marah say goodbye to the warden and praise Hermione’s for calling out her family’s “Archie obsession.” In The Blue And Gold, we discuss Tom Hanks’ Mazes And Monsters and try to figure out which Riverdale cast member would make the best Drag Race judge.

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.
