Critic reviews for Chapter Sixteen: The Watcher in the Woods
To recap: the letter is either sincere or insincere, and either someone else is pulling his strings or he's acting alone.
For a lot of the series Kevin has been a very "gay best friend" character, so it was nice to see him have this emotional moment.
I love a good murder mystery. Give me tension, thrills, and paranoia spreading across the town. It's all the ingredients for a great season plot.
Bottom line: This was an excellent episode that had character development aplenty and some genuinely unsettling moments.
Thankfully, the pace of Riverdale slowed down with this episode. Still, while some of the stories played out to perfection -- Hiram Lodge and Jughead's plots in particular -- there were some that need some serious work.
