Critic Reviews for Chapter Thirty-Four: Judgment Night

Let's just hope that Cheryl and her red hunting cape can save us all. (Although they couldn't save this episode from itself, so it's not looking good.)

Perhaps the biggest surprise about "Chapter Thirty-Four" is that I genuinely liked the episode. Even with the more technically competent episodes in this second half of the season, actually enjoying them has been a difficult task.

Cool cool cool. Please ready your Michael Scott murder-suicide box.

Jam-packed as Riverdale is this week, it works. It's dizzying and electrifying.

The town of Riverdale is a war zone! One gunshot lit the spark that turned everything, and everyone, into pure chaos.

It's obvious that actress Madelaine Petsch knows exactly what she's doing in this role, and has taken the show's campy spirit to heart.

Riverdale's worst kept secret was finally revealed... And you know what? I'm okay with this.

Riverdale has officially closed the case on the Black Hood, and while the big reveal... wasn't quite as dramatic as the scenarios fans theorized, the ending of the episode more than made up for it.

Riverdale needs more Cheryl archery scenes...
