Riverdale's secrets keep spinning in "Chapter Ten," though the show's narrative momentum is somewhat stunted during a slightly lackluster episode.

Critic Reviews for Chapter Ten: The Lost Weekend

What makes everything work so well is how secrets, particularly those that develop between family, warp the relationships of every character.

We're retreading some yawn-inducingly familiar ground.

What comes next is absolutely the laziest writing Riverdale has exercised so far, but it's great if you've suddenly chosen this nightmarish episode to start watching the show.

It cannot be overstated what a great job Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart are doing. They have outstanding chemistry together, and they're really killing the material they're given. Big thumbs up.

HOLY FREAKING MOSES - It's none other than MOLLY RINGWALD! I could kiss the casting director right now.

Birthday parties are lots of fun, right? Well, not on Riverdale, where they just lead to bitter arguments, problem drinking and uncomfortable secrets being revealed.

The Lost Weekend was extremely lackluster and had too much contrived drama and brought back some unresolved, but problematic, situations.

Can we all agree that party was epic? I wish my high school parties looked like that.

While on the subject of Archie, it's nice to see the character finally taking a larger role in the main stories.

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

There are emotional revelations that really land, and that feel unique to each character and the way they're growing.

It's great to see Ringwald, if even for a second, and I look forward to more of her arc in future episodes.
