Critic reviews for Chapter Fifteen: Nighthawks

I wouldn't think the homage should be taken literally. Which is to say I don't think the Zodiac Killer is a character on Riverdale. But it is an apt reference to make in a different way: this event essentially marks whoever this guy is as a serial killer.

Only in the Archie world could you get away with this name...Jingle Jangle. Jingle Jangle is the name of the drug.

Cool to see comics mainstay Midge make her Riverdale debut. Bummer that she died.

"Nighthawkers" isn't a bad episode, but it's not one that's particularly good either.

Riverdale is a mad delight. This show has taken an American icon of blandness and turned it into a bizarre, over-the-top mystery show.

At this point, I can't tell if this season is crazier than season 1 or if I just need time to readjust, but I cannot get over that scene at Thistle House.
