Cheryl Pays Her Mom A Visit On Next Week’s ‘Riverdale’

by Rachel Bellwoar

The trailer for next week’s Riverdale might be primarily concerned with the fog that’s about to land in Riverdale, but there are two other takeaways. One is that Cheryl’s mom (Nathalie Boltt) appears to be wearing a nun’s habit. Two is that Veronica (Camila Mendes) has seemingly reconsidered banishing Reggie (Charles Melton) from her bed (not that it’s entirely clear what room they’re in from the trailer):

Which brings us to this week’s episode. Most time travelers don’t have to shot or killed to travel through time, so it just seems unnecessarily traumatic to have that be the trigger for Tabitha (Erinn Westbrook) being able to hop between decades. Much like Percival (Chris O’Shea) and his mind control, too, once the option to use Tabitha’s guardian angel to get out of scrapes became possible it’s a wonder Tabitha didn’t use that trick every time, not that it was a full proof plan. Percival still found a gun while wearing a straitjacket.

Last criticism, but while Tabitha stopping Riverdale from getting turned into a sundown town was a local issue, going from that to stopping Martin Luther King Jr, from being assassinated felt a little beyond Riverdale‘s reach (and there’s no way J. Edgar Hoover would’ve been that easy to call, right?).

Riverdale airs Sundays on The CW.
