Riverdale - "Faster, Pussycats! Kill! Kill!" recap

Archie switches from singing with Veronica to singing with Valerie from the Pussycats for the town's Variety Show. Veronica sees her mom kissing Archie's dad. Betty and Jughead discover what became of her sister, Polly.

So far, Riverdale has impressed me with how it updates the Archie characters and puts them into a Twin Peaks-like drama and yet generally stays true to the characters fans of the comics have known for so long. (There's a couple exceptions. Jughead—longtime relationship-free character, recently called asexual in the comics—kisses Betty in this episode.) I've long thought the Archie characters would lend themselves to a TV show well, and while Riverdale is quite different from the show I'd imagined, I can't say I'm not liking it.
