13 Of The Most Shocking Moments From "Riverdale" Season 2

13 Of The Most Shocking Moments From "Riverdale" Season 2

Betty, Archie, Veronica, and Jughead never saw these moments coming, and neither did you.

"Riverdale" is filled with an all-star cast that is packed to the brim with talent. The first season of the show always had me at the edge of my seat, and I stayed up all night watching the episodes. That being said, I was beyond excited when it got renewed for a second season.

After watching the season finale, I felt that this season of "Riverdale" fell a bit short of my expectations. However, it was still filled with those same unforeseeable moments that the first season had, and there sure were a lot of them. Below are the moments from the second season that I never saw coming.

Beware! There are spoilers ahead.

1. The death of Ms. Grundy.

Shocking? Yes. Sad? Hell no. Bye!

2. When Bughead broke up.

HEARTBREAKING. Thank God this didn't last long and they got back together after a few episodes. Jughead and Betty are soulmates.

3. Chic lying about who he was.

Let’s be honest, we all knew something was up with Chic, and I'm relieved he isn't actually a Cooper. Because we don't know exactly what happened to Chic, I think he’ll be back to cause more trouble in the future.

4. Cheryl and Toni’s new relationship.

Cheryl has had such a destructive and upsetting past, and I’m so happy she finally found someone.

5. The 'Carrie the Musical' episode.

I literally live for musical episodes. I was pretty surprised that "Riverdale" decided to do one, but I was so pumped for it! Who knew all of the cast members could act, dance, AND sing?

6. Alice and FP had a son together.

Finding out that Alice used to be a serpent was one thing, but her baby’s dad being FP? Didn’t see that one coming.

7. Veronica FINALLY realizing her dad is equivalent to the devil.

THIS CALLS FOR A CELEBRATION. The man is straight from hell. It took a whole season, but Veronica finally became aware of how toxic he is. I can only hope that her mother sees this in the future as well.

8. Archie choosing to support his dad over Hiram Lodge.

Why did he choose Hiram over his own father FOR AN ENTIRE SEASON? We don’t know. Archie does a lot of stupid things. I’m just glad, and shocked, that he finally realized family is more important than anything else.

9. Veronica taking things into her own hands when Archie was in trouble.

After Nick St. Clair threatened to kill Archie, Veronica roofied him, which is exactly what he does to other girls. On top of that, she held him for a ransom of one million dollars. It was nice to see Veronica didn't need her parents to save the day, and she was a total badass.

10. Cheryl escaping her psychotic family once and for all.

Cheryl wasn’t my favorite person in the first season. Actually, I thought she was pretty psycho herself. But after seeing how awful her family operates, I’m glad she’s all alone with sweet Nana Rose.

11. Betty’s dad being revealed as the Black Hood.

I sort of had an inkling about this, but when it was confirmed, I was so shook. Betty goes through way too much crap, and she truly didn’t deserve this. Here’s hoping Hal rots in jail!

12. Jughead surviving being beaten to death.

This was a real shock, considering he wasn’t breathing when they found him. Also, Jughead recovered in a matter of days without any major injuries. Very interesting. I'm just happy he's okay and Bughead can live on!

13. The “Cooper Darkness” lives on in Polly.

After Betty decided her darkness is no longer going to be a part of her life, I feel like Polly may be the Cooper that carries the family "darkness." Did anyone else catch that side eye when she was talking to Alice in the season finale? She will definitely be up to something bad in the future.

Here's hoping for another season of Riverdale full of shocking moments, cute boys, and episodes that keep me on the edge of my seat.

9 Reasons Crocs Are The Only Shoes You Need

Crocs have holes so your swag can breathe.

Do you have fond childhood objects that make you nostalgic just thinking about your favorite Barbie or sequenced purse? Well for me, its my navy Crocs. Those shoes put me through elementary school. I eventually wore them out so much that I had to say goodbye. I tried Airwalks and sandals, but nothing compared. Then on my senior trip in New York City, a four story Crocs store gleamed at me from across the street and I bought another pair of Navy Blue Crocs. The rest is history. I wear them every morning to the lake for practice and then throughout the day to help air out my soaking feet. I love my Crocs so much, that I was in shock when it became apparent to me that people don't feel the same. Here are nine reasons why you should just throw out all of your other shoes and settle on Crocs.

1. They are waterproof.

These bad boys can take on the wettest of water. Nobody is sure what they are made of, though. The debate is still out there on foam vs. rubber. You can wear these bad boys any place water may or may not be: to the lake for practice or to the club where all the thirsty boys are. But honestly who cares because they're buoyant and water proof. Raise the roof.

2. Your most reliable support system

There is a reason nurses and swimming instructors alike swear by Crocs. Comfort. Croc's clogs will make you feel like your are walking on a cloud of Laffy Taffy. They are wide enough that your toes are not squished, and the rubbery material forms perfectly around your foot. Added bonus: The holes let in a nice breeze while riding around on your Razor Scooter.

3. Insane durability

Have you ever been so angry you could throw a Croc 'cause same? Have you ever had a Croc bitten while wrestling a great white shark? Me too. Have you ever had your entire foot rolled like a fruit roll up but had your Crocs still intact? Also me. All I know is that Seal Team 6 may or may not have worn these shoes to find and kill Osama Bin Laden. Just sayin'.

4. Bling, bling, bling

Jibbitz, am I right?! These are basically they're own money in the industry of comfortable footwear. From Spongebob to Christmas to your favorite fossil, Jibbitz has it all. There's nothing more swag-tastic than pimped out crocs. Lady. Killer.

5. So many options

From the classic clog to fashionable sneakers, Crocs offer so many options that are just too good to pass up on. They have fur lined boots, wedges, sandals, loafers, Maryjane's, glow in the dark, Minion themed, and best of all, CAMO! Where did your feet go?!

6. Affordable

Crocs: $30

Feeling like a boss: Priceless

7. Two words: Adventure Straps

Because you know that when you move the strap from casual mode chillin' in the front to behind the heal, it's like using a shell on Mario Cart.

8. Crocs cares

Okay, but for real, Crocs is a great company because they have donated over 3 million pairs of crocs to people in need around the world. Move over Toms, the Croc is in the house.

9. Stylish AF

The boys will be coming for you like Steve Irwin.

Who cares what the haters say, right? Wear with pride, and go forth in style.

10 TV Shows You Need To Watch On Hulu

Hulu is slept on


I have recently moved to watch shows and movies on Hulu and Netflix. Hulu has a lot of great shows and movies to offer that aren't on Netflix. While Netflix is still great, Hulu is definitely starting to grow on me. Here are some shows that I have watched or have started watching on Hulu that I think are pretty great!

1. 11.22.63


If you love James Franco and Stephen King, you'll love this show. The first episode is a bit long, but all the other episodes are only 45 minutes. The plot line is pretty interesting. I also like that it doesn't tell you everything, it shows it to you and you piece things together.

2. The Act

The fact that this show is based on a true story is just insane. The acting is really great, especially if you watch actual videos of Gypsy, Joey King does a great job.

3. Castle Rock

Another Stephen King masterpiece. This show is riveting and really makes you think about what the truth is in the context of the story, and brings in some ethical questions.

4. Future Man

I've only recently started this but it's pretty interesting and funny.

5. The O.C.

The O.C. (TV Series 2003–2007) - IMDb


This show was great. Sometimes it was a bit annoying, but it is a classic show from the early 2000s. You really become invested in all the characters and your opinion may change on some characters because they grow and develop throughout the show.

6. The Handmaid's Tale

If you've read the book, you should definitely watch the show.

7. Obsession: Dark Desires


I just love true crime stories and this really dives deep into crime stories and the darkest parts of humanity.

8. Intervention

This show can be really sad or frustrating, but I think it's good for people to see the reality of addiction.

9. Smallville

Smallville (2001-2011)


I also started this one very recently and I've always wanted to watch it. It can be cheesy but it's pretty entertaining.

10. Brooklyn Nine-Nine


This is a great show if you want to laugh. I love all of the characters and everything they bring to the table.
