Critic reviews for Chapter Nine: La Grande Illusion
As the season has progressed, Camila Mendes' Veronica has been a breakout character because of how she projects a believable mix of strength and vulernability.
Thankfully, Chapter Nine: La Grande Illusion sees the show return to form, offering up a little bit of everything we've come to love, including a lot of Cheryl Blossom
"La Grande Illusion" is such a great episode of RIVERDALE, one that elevates the mythology of the show in a way very similar to but more streamlined than its spiritual predecessor, TWIN PEAKS.
Jughead's narration lets us know that Cheryl's going to be bringing the crazy even more in the future. No shocker there - her character has been unhinged from the beginning.
If the Blossoms had plotted to destroy the Lodge family, could Hiram have returned the favor? Voilà, a new suspect's name finds its way onto the Jason Blossom murder board.
