Critic Consensus: In "A Night to Remember," an uneven second season comes to a head as Riverdale's first -- and hopefully not last -- musical episode gloriously weaves the show's many wandering threads back into its central murder-mystery yarn.

Critic reviews for Chapter Thirty-One: A Night to Remember
After much anticipation, the Riverdale musical episode has come and gone. While Cheryl deserved better (ie. the lead role of Carrie), it's a good thing she wasn't on stage for the musical after all.
Riverdale is the perfect show to tackle the musical episode convention. It's over-the-top; brimming with complex, bold characters; explicit in its motifs and stylization
I knew that musicals brought drama, but... well, Riverdale, you really have outdone yourself with this one.
With its musical episode on Wednesday night... Riverdale High left all of that nonsense behind-zeroing in on all the elements that have made the series great as Kevin's production of Carrie: The Musical made its stage debut.
The cast of Riverdale really did have the music in them!
