Critic Reviews for Chapter Fifty-Nine: Fast Times at Riverdale High

As for the episode overall, I thought it was fine. Some stories worked better than others, but we can only ignore the lack of guardians in this town for so long...

It's perfectly of a piece with an episode that exemplifies Riverdale in top form, ladling up the good stuff with a minimum of distraction.

Was this number a bizarre, even inexplicable thing for Veronica to do - for Riverdale to do? Obviously. But, look: This is season four, and it's going to take more than one sort-of-non-but-actually-diegetic musical-theater number to rattle us.

The sequence is perfect, absurd camp. "All That Jazz" doesn't really fit Veronica's narrative, but who cares?

I tell myself I'm going to quit after every season and every episode of Riverdale, but I can't bring myself to do it, not because I enjoy Riverdale (I do not), but because I have to see what happens next.

Riverdale excels in the chaos.

With the season just ramping up and having to establish what its driving plots will be, it is somewhat understandable that this episode was such a clunky wheel spinner. Could this be the worst installment the series has ever done?

Archie finally standing up for Reggie was a beautiful scene that needed to happen.
