Riverdale Review: Chapter Six: Faster, Pussycats! Kill! Kill! (Season 1 Episode 6)

Riverdale Season 1 Episode 6, “Chapter Six: Faster, Pussycats! Kill! Kill!,” finally introduces Polly and sets us on what looks to be an interesting storyline.

Even after Betty and Jughead find Polly and prove that she isn’t crazy Alice continues to act as if she is, it’s weird. Betty knows that she didn’t lock Polly up because she was insane, but for some reason, she thinks Betty is too stupid to realize it.

I don’t know what it is about the parents in Riverdale, but I can’t stand any of them. Well, besides Fred and even then he’s on a thin line.

Deep down I know that Hal probably isn’t the one who killed Jason, but he sure is a suspect. I can’t help but feel like he’s the one who was watching Betty and Jughead out at the car.

Polly wasn’t very quite when she explained her plan to Betty, so it’s very possible that the nun overheard and spilled the beans.

Now that the car has been found and it’s been confirmed that Jason was, in fact, selling drugs to skip town, who killed him? Who didn’t want him to leave so bad that they would murder him so that he couldn’t? And where has Polly gone?

Polly looks like she’s close to being six, or over, months pregnant so just how did she jump from that window? And if it was so easy then why had she not done it before now?

I know that the Polly drama makes the rest of the episode seem like it truly means nothing, but I have to talk about Veronica being a Pussycat.

First off, I wish that Veronica was a Pussycat at all times so that we could see her belt it out anytime. But, sadly that won’t happen so I’ll just enjoy the little moments we did have.

Like I said, I profoundly enjoyed watching Veronica be a pussycat, but I’m not okay with how it came about. Archie needs to start treating his friends better.

Veronica offered because she knew he didn’t want to do it alone and then she got excited. She had a right to be mad that he pushed her to the side for Valerie. Girlfriends, or girls that you like, don’t come before friendships.

What’s worse is that he would’ve kicked Valerie off to bring Veronica back because she was upset. Get your priorities straight, boy.

Josie was just the stuck up girl who cared about nothing besides music, until now. I can see and understand why Josie acts the way she does. Her mother and father treat her like a pile of garbage if she isn’t constantly on top of her music game. Come on, she and the rest of the pussycats are still in high school. Let’s not forget that.

What irks me is the fact that Josie’s dad has the audacity to tell Josie that Valerie is the reason the Pussycats thrive. One episode in and he’s already in the same category with the Coopers and Blossoms, to me.

I hope that this isn’t the end of a Veronica and Josie friendship. The both of them can connect on a personal level, and it’s often a good thing to have someone there for support who knows what you’re going through.

“Chapter Six: Faster, Pussycats! Kill! Kill!” is, overall, a pretty great episode and sets the tone for the last half of the season with Polly’s storyline.

Other Thoughts:

  • I know this is extreme, but could Cheryl be the one who torched the car in the woods? Maybe she didn’t want people to find out about Jason’s bad side.
  • As much as I love Betty and Jughead’s dynamic, that kiss was too rushed and out of place for me.
  • I’m glad that Archie decided to let Valerie go back to the pussycats.
  • What’s up with the wolf masks Archie continues to see?
  • I think I would like Fred and Hermione more if Fred hadn’t of used the job offer as a nudge to the relationship.
  • Hermione is going to regret signing those papers and forging Veronica’s name. Veronica will retaliate.
