I know this was supposed to the continuation of season 4 and as a prom episode, it was particularly poor. I wished we saw more of prom itself considering they’re graduating, and why is it hard for them to have a good time and enjoy the last few weeks of senior year? When the video was leaked and shown and when the people started dancing, I thought the show couldn’t get even more crazier, but I was proven wrong.
Archie is really getting on my nerves. For him everything is just about fighting and setting things with a fight. I miss the season 1 Archie where he used to enjoy being a teenager and music was his life. I know that the time he spent in juvenile changed him, but I really don’t like the way the writers are taking him. And does he not own a pair of formal shoes? Who the hell wears sneakers to prom?
And Cheryl and Toni. I am so annoyed that they have technically broken up. I know they didn’t say the exact words. But considering that Toni chose her grandparents over Cheryl, it literally broke my heart. Cheryl has no one apart form her grandmother and Toni was the only one there for her and accepted her. There was no mention of Toni’s family apart from her uncle who really disowned her and I didn’t like the fact that everything was rushed in this episode. Why didn’t she mention anything before? They’ve been dating since the end of season 2, which technically means they’ve been together for a year. I think this is one of those storylines where there should’ve been a build up. And I thought Toni already was living with Cheryl and has been since season 3? I’m confused to why she had to be back home by midnight.
Overall, I think this was such a poor episode. I hope next episode is better
