The CW’s Riverdale season two episode five was definitely a game-changer. Betty was stalked by the Black Hood who apparently watches not only her every move, but also those of her family and friends. The mysterious Black Hood forced Betty to humiliate Veronica and push her out of her life. She also had to embarrass her mom, something she accomplished by publicizing her mom’s mugshot. And then the most devastating blow arrived when the Black Hood made her break off her relationship with Jughead.
Fortunately, Betty confided in Archie and he helped her out by telling Jughead she didn’t want to see him ever again. Unfortunately, the Black Hood knew she told Archie about their phone conversations. At the end of the episode she had to make the choice between the safety of her family or giving the Black Hood the name of someone who was guilty. She choose to name Nick St. Clair, Veronica’s rich friend who deserved punishment after attempting to date rape Cheryl. Oh, and Jughead officially became a Serpent and kissed Tony! It was truly a jam-packed episode.
