Riverdale’s mid-season finale feels so epic it’s “practically biblical,” as Hiram would put it. But beyond that, it’s a ton of fun, thanks largely to a visit to The Jones Yard and a much-needed injection of Cheryl Bombshell. In this week’s Dial M For Maple, Marah has suspicions about Gladys Jones, and Cameron ties it all back to the plot of Batman Begins. Plus, we wonder how these characters would fare in the event of an Archie Comics-inspired zombie outbreak.
