Chapter Three: Body Double



Critic Consensus: The binds of female friendship and more murder mystery intrigue keep "Chapter Three" afloat in spite of a few snags in its Capote-inspired story.

Critic Reviews for Chapter Three: Body Double

I don't hate Riverdale; I don't love Riverdale. I simply Riverdale - week after week.

There's still plenty to enjoy here, not the least of which is some Melrose Place style histrionics among the parental set.

Riverdale really is all about girl power.

There was a lot going on and the execution wasn't always successful, but it was the murder mystery and new plot details that kept it afloat.

At least one of the writers must really be a big fan of Truman Capote.

Now that is how you get revenge!

Apr 21, 2017 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

Lili Reinhart and Camila Mendes are so damn good -- serious superstars in the making. Their chemistry is pitch perfect.

Apr 21, 2017 | Full Review…

The third, and most eventful, episode of Riverdale to date was full of competing storylines that ran the gamut from compelling (the solidifaction of Betty and Veronica's friendship) to yawn-inducing (Archie's quest to become a musician),

This [episode contains] by far the weirdest scene in any episode of Riverdale so far, and I am very much here for it.

On the third week, Riverdale created Barb from Stranger Things, and it was good. Well, actually, she was good, but the rest of this week's episode? Let's just say one of the Blossom twins is lucky he didn't have to watch it.
