Here we go again...

Riverdale S3 Ups Downs 18

Contains spoilers from Riverdale Season 3, Episode 18.

Riverdale's third season has been as devoted to The Farm as Alice and Polly Cooper clearly are and, as evidenced in this week's episode, that doesn't appear to be changing any time soon.

Returning to screens following a brief hiatus, 'Jawbreaker' dealt with Betty's desperate attempts to rescue her mother from Edgar Evernever's institution. This time, however, she didn't have to go it alone as she had found a new ally in Toni - who was equally as desperate to free Cheryl from The Farm's grip.

Meanwhile, Jughead and F.P. were called upon to solve the disturbing death of Baby Teeth, only to get dragged into a mystery involving the town's increasing drug activity, and Archie Andrews found himself back in the ring to take on a former enemy - unaware that the answers Jughead was looking for were right in front of him.

All in all, 'Jawbreaker' was a mixed bag. It was an enjoyable enough offering that was as bizarre as only Riverdale can be, but it spent more time going round in circles than furthering the story.

First, the positives...
