Critic reviews for Chapter Fifty-Eight: In Memoriam

Even at its most over-the-top, that setup makes Riverdale feel lived-in and tethered to some semblance of reality. I'm sure soon enough we'll be going off-the-rails again, but like Cheryl, I always welcome the chaos.

The level of care that went into crafting this season premiere makes it clear that line isn't entirely about Fred. Luke Perry was the best Riverdale had to offer, and their best was honored beautifully.

It's a rare thing for Riverdale to produce something of perfection, but this premiere was nothing short of magnificence.

While the show has a reputation for being a little ridiculous and a lot chaotic, this episode highlights how much this cast and crew care for each other with a profound amount of respect, passion, and heart.

The two clearly had a friendship that transcended so much time and it was beautiful two see his two on-screen families come together. Luke Perry got to be one television's first loves and one of television's great dads.

It'll be interesting to see if Fred Andrews' legacy colors the remainder of this forthcoming season. And even if it doesn't, the premiere episode was a really beautiful way to pay tribute to such a central character-and talent-in teen television lexicon.
