Is the Mystery of the "Black Hood" Really Over on Riverdale?

Since its debut, Riverdale exists on a plane that's entirely its own. It has a flair for the maple syrup business, the sexualization of characters, jingle-jangle, and murder. And we love it because of that.

Sometimes the plotline is amiss, and we just turn the other cheek because like I said, it exists on its own plane.

That all changed with the Black Hood storyline. All of season two shifted from the Jason Blossom murder mystery to the Black Hood murder mystery, and while it wasn't oozing that Riverdale-goodness, it was a storyline with a heartbeat, so we let it run its course.

While Black Hood hasn't been the most engaging of villains, he's offered viewers an insight into the twisted town that is Riverdale.

But the reveal of Black Hood's identity was a letdown of epic proportions. Loyal fans simply cannot accept that kind of mediocrity.

‘Dark’ Spoilers Review: Anyone Expecting ‘Stranger Things’ is in for a Hypnotic, Jarring TV Puzzle

‘Dark’ Spoilers Review: Anyone Expecting ‘Stranger Things’ is in for a Hypnotic, Jarring TV Puzzle
[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for the entirety of “Dark” Season 1. For a spoiler-free review, please click here.]

Given its release date and the missing child premise at the outset, “Dark” drew inevitable comparisons to another particular Netflix show before it was even released. But whether or not the show pops up in a “Because You Watched ‘Stranger Things’” algorithm, know that this show decidedly goes places that few TV dramas usually do.

In the process, “Dark” never quite shakes off the puzzle box nature of its setup, but to watch the various layers of the show unravel, bolstered by a cast list length that George R.R. Martin would be proud of, it’s a distinctive viewing experience, even when it tackles more than 10 episodes can contain.

19 Music Video Cameos You Totally Need to See Again
Liam Payne‘s most recent music video for his single, “Bedroom Floor,” is one to remember – and not just because of its catchy beat; the song’s video features Bella Thorne, who portrays a girl dealing with a flaky boyfriend.

Payne is hardly the first singer to feature another celeb in his music video. Some are particularly iconic – think Liv Tyler and Alicia Silverstone in Aerosmith’s “Crazy,” or Lena Dunham, Cindy Crawford and more in Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” – but there are a bunch we bet you forgot about:

Pink Added to Star-Studded List of Performers at 2017 American Music Awards
As if the list of performers at the 2017 American Music Awards wasn’t already stacked, the show has added another all-star to their dream lineup.

Pink is set to take the stage to perform a show-stopping rendition of the title track from her most recent album, Beautiful Trauma, which debuted in the top spot on the Billboard 200 chart in October.

The 38-year-old singer is no stranger to the AMAs. She first performed at the awards show in 2001 with her hit “Most Girls,” and returned again in 2003 and 2008. Most recently, her 2012 appearance —during which she performed song “Try” — made headlines for the star’s unforgettable acrobatics.

American Horror Story Season 6 Episode 7 Review: Chapter 7

  • TVfanatic
Have we ever seen a more action-packed installment of American Horror Story? I don't think so.

American Horror Story Season 6 Episode 7 featured scare after non-stop scare. And gore. Plenty of gore.

It's as though the Ahs writers somehow caught a sneak-peak of The Walking Dead Season 7 Premiere and were like, "Nah, we can top that goriness."

I can safely say that "Chapter 7" will go down as one of my favorite installments of American Horror Story ever. It was legitimately unsettling and just plain creepy, on so many different levels.

The Mvp (so to speak) of the hour was undoubtedly Kathy Bates' Agnes. I can't speak highly enough of how unsettling it was to watch Agnes talking to herself, slipping from her Butcher accent/persona into flashes of her "real"/normal self. Give her all the awards for this performance, Asap.

It's incredible how Bates' performance changed in subtle ways

'Helix' premiere: A way-too-early attempt to predict where Syfy's new horror series is going

'Helix' premiere: A way-too-early attempt to predict where Syfy's new horror series is going
Syfy has trended silly the last few years, with a programming slate filled with light-hearted semi-procedurals. 2009 was Year Zero: Battlestar Galactica ended four seasons of critical acclaim and low ratings; Warehouse 13 began five seasons of good ratings and zero acclaim; the channel changed its name to Syfy, which still looks like a word somebody wrote on the whiteboard as a joke. There’s nothing intrinsically wrong about the rebranding: At its best, the channel suggests the USA Network with more greenscreen and more semi-repressed Canadian accents. Like, lots of people like Haven. I haven’t met them, but I still believe they exist.

'Suits' casts 'Homeland' actor Jamey Sheridan as a vengeful lawyer

Jamey Sheridan will soon be causing trouble on "Suits." The veteran actor will guest-star on an upcoming Season 3 episode as one of the lawyers destroyed by Jessica Pearson (Gina Torres) in her climb to the top of the legal world.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sheridan will play Charles Van Dyke. Van Dyke was one of the original name partners of the firm later known as Pearson Hardman, Pearson Darby, Pearson Darby Specter and now Pearson Specter. When Jessica and Daniel Hardman (David Costabile) staged a takeover of the firm -- then known as Gordon Schmidt Van Dyke -- Sheridan's character was one of those shoved out the door.

When he returns, we probably cannot expect much forgiveness for Jessica or anyone else at the firm.

Kevin Rankin on the Breaking Bad Shoot-out and Playing a Bad Guy in Everything
Bullets were flying at the end of the last episode of Breaking Bad, with Todd's uncle Jack and his associate Kenny (who were called off but came anyway), shooting at Hank and Gomie. Kevin Rankin, who plays Kenny, is no stranger to playing the villain. After a string of disabled, gay, and transgender roles on shows ranging from Friday Night Lights to the short-lived Trauma, Rankin actively sought to change his image with the types of roles he pursued. "You have such a responsibility when you're the good guy, but when you're the bad guy, all bets are off," he said. Rankin chatted with Vulture about his white supremacist streak, getting choked by Matthew McConaughey, and where Breaking Bad will pick up next on Sunday.Last episode ended in a controversial Mexican standoff ...Yeah, it was a heart-palpitation episode. And you know, I've seen a lot of complaints that it
