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.
