Review: Riverdale Season 2 Episode 2 “Nighthawks”

It delivers on pretty standard melodrama and relationships that zigzag across an array of intentions, but this episode also felt rather stale, providing simple explanation and not adding much to the mystery. While the show continues to excel in presenting impact and the effect that events have on the community, a sudden slow down in pace from last week and distracting diversions from the main narratives made the episode a structural mess where Archie was lost. ‘Riverdale’ remains technically beautiful, and the ending is another nice cliff-hanger, but overall this episode just seemed to reign it all in, after letting out all its campiness last week. 7.4/10
