'Riverdale' packs a serious punch with a 'West Side Story'-style brawl

On Riverdale, Archie, stepping deep into the dark side, got a gun. “I want the Black Hood dead, and I want to be the one who does it,” he said ominously. With his gun on him, he started tagging up the south side of town with his Red Circle symbol to try to get Black Hood’s attention, but mostly he just caught the Serpent’s eye. When one of them wielded a knife telling him to cut that Red Circle stuff out, Archie pulled his gun to the knife fight.

Surprised by his own audacity, Archie confided with Veronica about the gun, and she quickly told him, “I threw it in Sweetwater River.”

After ticking off the Serpents with all that graffiti, the Northsiders and the Southsiders had themselves a rumble, and Archie threw the first punch. In the middle of their West Side Story-style brawl, Veronica arrived just in time, firing off a shot from Archie’s gun before he got seriously hurt.

Fortunately, everyone made it out alive. After a very steamy makeout session, Ronnie and Archie put that stupid gun where it belonged, in Sweetwater River. But the Black Hood killer was still on the prowl and, in the end, Betty was the one who got a reminder with a direct phone call from the killer.

Riverdale airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. on the CW.
