Season 3 Of ‘Riverdale’ Took A Crazy Turn And Here Are The Best Fan Theories About What’s Coming Next

Welcome my confused as hell compadres who are embarrassingly invested in The CW’s “Riverdale” series. If you grew up reading the Archie Comics, then we all know how the show has taken a very dark turn from the original comic book series. We started out in a murder mystery and after the last few episode premieres of season three, we have no idea what’s happened to the sweet, small town of Riverdale.

Like, is this a mashup between “Stranger Things” and “Riverdale”? Can we expect there to be a crossover between “Riverdale” and “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” later in the season, now that things have gotten supernatural? We need answers.

Spoiler alert: We’re recapping.

Season two ended with Archie coming head to head with the hottest Latino dad on television, Hiram Lodge. Lodge always has the check mate up his sleeve and proved it when Archie was arrested for the murder of Lodge’s own hitman. So, we all kind of expected this season to be about the trial and Veronica and Hiram’s beef. We are so very wrong.

“The Farm” seems to be a key player in upcoming plot twists.

Polly Cooper is back and she’s creepier than ever. Let us remind you that the Cooper family almost all just got murdered by Betty’s serial killer father, who turned out to be The Black Hood. So, of course someone is going to turn to Jesus. Except, for the Cooper’s, it’s someone named Neverever. K.

Baby Neverever is very clearly evil.

After Betty witnessed her mother and sister drop her niece and nephew into a fire and watched them float mid-air, she conveniently and randomly had a seizure. The next episode, while Betty and Jughead are interrogating Ethel about her involvement in a very creepy supernatural game, we see the daughter of Neverever staring Ethel down until she has a seizure.
Q: Does she have the power to give people seizures?!

There’s a gargoyle king.

Spotted by Betty and Jughead in the woods and of course Ethel is involved. It seems like there’s some kind of next level Jumanji game of life happening that has killed two boys so far, including Dilton Doiley. It’s hard to imagine his comic book character ever getting involved in drinking kool aid around an altar with marks carved into his back, but this is the CW’s “Riverdale.”

The evolution of “Riverdale” is completely okay with us.

Like, we all grew up with brujas for mothers. This is all normal. If you didn’t have a tia that practiced Santería or an altar in your closet, then are you even Latinx?

Oh, and dummy Archiekins pled guilty to a murder he didn’t commit.

Raise your hand if you thought this trial would take up the totality of Season 3? ????????

Welp, Archie surprised everyone at the end of episode one when he accepted a plea deal on the spot to go to prison after a hung jury declared a mistrial. He said he didn’t want to put his family and friends through the process again. So now he’s in juvi.

But my question is why didn’t he think of his dog?

“what she says: i’m fine

what she means: vegas will never understand why archie isn’t coming home and archie really should have taken that into consideration before he recklessly pleaded guilty why didn’t he think of the dog why does nO ONE EVER THINK OF THE DOG #Riverdale”

All our collective anger over Archie’s extreme martyrdom is hella directed to sexy evil Papa Hiram.

The CW took comic book Hiram’s hatred for Archie to the next level, with a whole season of storyline development. Let’s be honest, if any of our fathers had the power to frame any boy who touches his daughter for murder, he would.

His evilness has finally been confirmed by Hermione.

Caption: “Why is no one talking about Hermione telling Veronica that that she is a prisoner and that Hiram won’t hurt a hair on his daughter’s head but she can’t say the same for herself??? Come on people this is important! Also @marisolnichols did the most INCREDIBLE job we love youuu”

It’s really hard to hate such a beautiful man.

And here we are. Hate to love you, Mark Consuelos, pero eres un pendejo to the max in “Riverdale.” Redeem yourself please.

Nope, he won’t, because he also set off riot guards to beat up Archie right in front of Ronnie.

Ronnie showed up to prison with the Vixens to give the prison boys a pep rally.

Archie tried to bring juvi boys together by offering his new shoes as a prize (because all the boys in juvi have the same shoe size). I have so many questions about why “Riverdale” writers decided to have the high school cheerleading team come and sing “Jailhouse Rock” to a bunch of kids behind bars.

Claro, we’re all here for Choni.

Cheryl and Toni are the hottest couple of the entire series and I don’t care what you say about Betty and Jughead. These two are goals. Let’s never forget how Toni broke Cheryl out of a conversion therapy prison and had an iconic, gorgeous kiss in front of all the other imprisoned-by-religion gays. ????????????

Their love is already inspiring all the Halloween costumes of 2018.

Cheryl received a special, honorary red jacket and joined the Serpents after she ran away from her abusive home and saved the Serpents from the Ghoulies last season. Of course, all our moms are worried that we’ve joined a gang. Really, we’re just into a show aimed at teenagers.

But the aesthetic is too good to pass up for group costumes.

As a lesbian, it was very confusing to be attracted to Jughead, but now I understand that it’s because his aesthetic is lesbian vibes.

Oh, and Joaquin is back in action running the Serpent crew in Juvi.

F.P. Jones gave Archie a last minute prison tat just in case he got in so that the Serpents would protect him. Joaquin wasn’t going to make it that easy though. He directed Archie to shiv a Ghoulie to earn their protection. Archiekins refused.

So many of us are here for this crew:

Like, all the hot dads of Riverdale teaming together against the Evil Hot Dad of Riverdale? This is the kind of subplot that only “Riverdale” can give us.

Let’s just accept the fact that this season is going off the rails.

Archie isn’t hanging with the crew in his Jalopy. He’s in jail. Hermione has made it clear that we’re not looking at filicide like in season one when Jason’s killer was his own father. Ronnie is safe.

We don’t know wtf is happening but The Internet has some ideas.

A Nancy Drew Twitter user noticed the same markings carved into Dilton Doiley’s back at the water hole.

CREDIT: @ConstancaNobre / Twitter

They are also on the “Welcome to Riverdale” sign. Remember that Betty and Jughead already found the markings in “The Bunker.” We don’t know what they mean but we’re sure that Bughead are going to figure it out.

Last we heard, all the adults already know who The Gargoyle King is.

Mayor Hermione Lodge gathered FP Jones, Alice Cooper, Fred Andrews, The Sheriff, Mrs. Blossom and the ex-Mayor together. They all swore they would never speak of what happened to them during their teenage-hood again. But now their children are in danger.

We’re all shook.

One deadass fuerte theory:

CREDIT: @alicecooperisbi / Twitter

Remember when Hiram called Alice the “Acid Queen”? Remember her mugshot when it was revealed that she’s actually Southside and used to hang out with the Serpents? TBH, it’s an excellent theory and you saw it here first.

If you’re not ready for some drama, leave the “Riverdale” fan club, because it’s spilling.

CREDIT: @ChoniLodge / Twitter

Yeah, everyone could have left Mystic Falls but then we wouldn’t have had “The Vampire Diaries.” Leave “Riverdale” be. I’m here to watch this drama unfold.

Radical Feminists Have Seized Control of a Federal Building in Mexico in Protest of the Government’s Apathy Towards Rampant Femicide

Radical Feminists Have Seized Control of a Federal Building in Mexico in Protest of the Government’s Apathy Towards Rampant Femicide

Last week, Mexican feminist activists took over the National Human Rights Commissions federal building in a move to bring greater awareness to the scourge of gender-based violence and femicide that has racked Mexico for decades.

According to the federal Interior Secretariat, the statistics in Mexico have recently taken a turn for the worse.

Domestic violence against women has became an even more acute problem since the pandemic has forced women to stay insider with their abusers. Emergency distress calls reporting domestic violence have risen by 50%.

The occupation of the Human Rights building is just another chapter in the saga of the “Ni Una Menos” (Not One More Woman) movement, an anti-femicide collective born in Argentina that has steadily been gaining steam in Mexico since 2019.

In recent years, anti-femicide demonstrations have been sparked by various heinous crimes against women or girls that have been largely overlooked by law enforcement officials.

Unfortunately, the government of Mexico has appeared to be apathetic to the wave of femicide that is overwhelming the women of their country.

Recently, when President Andrés Manuel López Obrador was asked to address Mexico’s gender violence epidemic, he demurred, stating that he didn’t “want femicide to detract” from the raffle his administration was holding for the sale of the presidential airplane.

As for the feminist activists at the heart of Ni Una Menos and the federal building occupation, the government’s failure to respond to anti-woman violence is the primary fuel for their anger. 

“We’re here so that the whole world will know that in Mexico they kill women and nobody does anything about it,” said Yesenia Zamudio to the LA Times. According to Zamudio, she is still seeking justice for the murder of her 19-year-old daughter four years ago.

The women of Mexico appear to be fed up, grasping at any and all tactics that have the potential to incite change on a grander scale.

Their tactics may seem dramatic to some, but it’s undeniable that they are no longer being ignored. As of now, the radical activists are pulling attention-grabbing stunts like decorating a portrait of Mexican Revolution leader Francisco Madero with lipstick and purple hair.

They’re also making headlines for vandalizing the federal building’s walls and splashing paint on the doors of the presidential palace.

One thing is for sure: something has to change. Otherwise, thousands of innocent women and girls will continue to be raped, abused, and murdered while their perpetrators escape with immunity.

Joe Biden Speaks Alongside ‘Fearless Fighter’ Kamala Harris In First Appearance And Recalls Her Family’s Immigrant Story

Joe Biden Speaks Alongside ‘Fearless Fighter’ Kamala Harris In First Appearance And Recalls Her Family’s Immigrant Story

After weeks of speculation and anticipation, presidential candidate Joe Biden announced on Tuesday that he has officially picked his running mate.

In a history-making announcement, Biden revealed that he had tapped California Sen. Kamala Harris to be his VP Pick.

“I have the great honor to announce that I’ve picked @KamalaHarris — a fearless fighter for the little guy, and one of the country’s finest public servants — as my running mate,” Biden announced in a tweet.

On Wednesday, Biden held his first campaign event alongside running mate Kamala Harris in Delaware.

During their speeches, the two candidates wore masks and kept their distance in keeping with COVID-19 standards.

Speaking about his VP pick, Biden described Harris as coming from an “America’s story.” Biden described Harris as “a child of immigrants” who “knows personally how immigrant families enrich our country as well as the challenges of what it means to grow up Black and Indian-American in the United States of America,” he explained. “And this morning, all across the nation, little girls woke up, especially little Black and brown girls that feel overlooked and undervalued in their communities, but today — today just maybe they’re seeing themselves for the first time in a new way as president and vice presidents.”

In a speech of her own, Harris emphasized the importance of family and urged citizens to vote.  “We need a mandate that proves that the past few years do not represent who we are or who we aspire to be,” she said. “Joe likes to say that character is on the ballot. And it’s true,” she explained. “I’ve had a lot of titles over my career and certainly vice president will be great. But ‘Momala’ will always be the one that means the most.”

Harris’s nomination makes her the first Black and first Indian-American woman on either major party’s presidential ticket.

Harris is a former prosecutor from California who challenged Biden in her own presidential bid last year. Her nomination makes her the fourth woman to appear on a major presidential ballot. Before her, Geraldine Ferraro ran as a Democratic vice presidential nominee in 1984. In 2008, Republican Sarah Palin ran as a vice presidential nominee, later in 2016, Hillary Clinton became the Democratic presidential nominee.

Biden’s choice was one that has long been in the works. In March of this year, he revealed that he would make a point to have a woman as his running mate and in July he announced that he had narrowed his picks down to four Black women.

Kamala Harris was elected to Congress in 2016.

This has been Harris’ first term as a senator. Before, she served as the California attorney general. During her time as AG, Harris formed a lasting friendship with Biden’s late son Beau who was attorney general at the time in Delaware. Writing about Beau’s death, in her memoir The Truths We Hold, Harris recalled that “there were periods when I was taking the heat when Beau and I talked every day, sometimes multiple times a day,” she wrote in her memoir. “We had each other’s backs.”

Biden’s son Beau died in 2015 from brain cancer. Harris attended his funeral.

During his announcement, Biden mentioned Harris’ friendship with his son.

“I watched as they took on the big banks, lifted up working people, and protected women and kids from abuse,” Biden tweeted. “I was proud then, and I’m proud now to have her as my partner in this campaign.”

So far, it seems there are quite a bit of Harris x Biden supporters.

Fans were quick to give their support and applaud her candidacy.

In a tweet acknowledging her nomination, Harris wrote “@JoeBiden can unify the American people because he’s spent his life fighting for us. And as president, he’ll build an America that lives up to our ideals. I’m honored to join him as our party’s nominee for Vice President, and do what it takes to make him our Commander-in-Chief.”

Here’s to 2020 y’all. Get ready to make history.
