Critic reviews for Chapter Twenty-Two: Silent Night, Deadly Night
After an entire half-season of shock and terror (trademark Birdemic), we finally learned the true identity of the man behind the mask.
Since this is the midseason finale, I will forgive the cliffhanger twist. We need something to keep us hooked when Riverdale comes back in January 2018.
Christmas has come to Riverdale!! And while comfort and joy would usually be the mood of the season, this episode picks up right where we left off: with heartbreak, drug dealers, and a murderer still on the loose!
So rarely do we see shows' midseason offerings lean into their story the way "Silent Night, Deadly Night" did.
It doesn't feel like audiences ever ask for these promises of "darker" and "edgier" follow-up seasons, yet they still come. Is it so much to ask for just a consistently good season?
