Critic reviews for Chapter Twenty-Three: The Blackboard Jungle

It had the right mix of horror/mystery movie vibe and a cliffhanger tease.

I'm liking the hint of a new romance between Kevin and Serpent gang member Fangs. Kevin Keller deserves to be happy, people!

Narratively, Riverdale's midseason return didn't do much, but it did spend some solid time building up and adding new layers to its characters.

At this point I have more than enough faith in Riverdale's writing staff that everything presented here will pay off down the line.

Riverdale is back to its super skeezy self after that whole Black Hood debacle.

"Chapter Twenty-Three: The Blackboard Jungle" is very clearly a reset episode for season two, but the pieces it's putting together are so weak that they don't help the season get out from its rut.
