When Papa Andrews is so gentle with Archie after Grundy leaves, and he lets his son sit in the car and take his time, doesn’t push him to talk– “You’re not stupid. This wasn’t your fault.” The way he backs up when Archie gets out and lets him have space, but then holds him when Archie starts crying– A+ parenting. I love this man.
“Your dad answer to a higher authority than God..The Blossoms.”
Cheryl, who lied for MONTHS about what happened on July 4th is NOT interrogated in the police station and leave the moment her parents show up but Jughead, who had basically no reason to be arrested in the first place, need a lawyer and an alibi.
i’m not bitter at all ***sarcasm***
At least he got out with caring people by his side instead of the Blossoms…Poor Cheryl.
I’ll say this for Jughead’s dad: FP Jones is FULLY aware that he’s a terrible parent. Which does actually put him ahead of the Coopers and the Blossoms, who, in addition to having a blood feud that spans generations, are shady, shifty, abusive, and total dumpster fires…BUT seem to think that they’re just swell parents.
(Yes, the first post I made about Riverdale was about the parents. I am an Old.)
It’s a human need to be told stories. The more we’re governed by idiots and have no control over our destinies, the more we need to tell stories to each other about who we are, why we are, where we come from, and what might be possible.
