Critic reviews for Chapter Five: Heart of Darkness
It's another gray day in Riverdale, but my hopes are high for Bring on the even more openly disturbed Cooper sister, I say!
It didn't always flow well, something the writers need to strengthen is the pace and balance of the episodes, but regardless, it gave us some fascinating new information and humanized Cheryl a bit (something that was overdue).
This episode isn't as engrossing and jam packed as last week. But it's still glorious thanks to Riverdale's best character: Betty.
Keeping track of all the characters and their ties to each other can be a dizzying task. That's the fun of the show though, trying to sort through all the wreckage and mayhem.
