Riverdale Season 2 Episode 6 Recap: The Black Hood Claims Another Victim

The residents of Riverdale should probably think about the past and reflect on whether they have done anything that could put them on the outs with the Black Hood. 

Betty continued to work with the villain on Riverdale Season 2 Episode 6, and it became apparent that the killing is far from over. 

When the episode got underway, Betty rushed to Nick’s hotel room and expected to find a grisly sight. Instead, she found him being arrested by Sheriff Keller for alleged assault. 

The killer informed Betty that Nick was not on his hit-list because his sins were nothing compared to the crimes of people in the town.

The killer told Betty it was time to take down the dealer of jingle-jangle, the drug that every teen in the town seemed to be hooked on. 

While most had heard tales of the Sugarman, the person who apparently crafted the drug and released it to the masses, she did not know where to look. 

She turned to Cheryl because her father had a huge association with the drug dealers of the town before his death. When Cheryl tried to find out the truth from her mother, she was stopped in her tracks. 

Cheryl recalled an old story that her mother used to tell her to scare her when Clifford was meeting with the elusive drug dealer, but Penelope shut her daughter down, saying that she was a liar. 

Then, Penelope met up with the Lodges and learned that Cheryl was almost assaulted by Nick. Penelope claimed she wanted it to be kept quiet, and on a more sickening note, said that nothing really happened to her daughter. 

Is this mother the worst one on all of TV? It sure seems that way. Cheryl then bumped into the man who tried to rape her, and he said that her mother accepted hush money in exchange for Cheryl keeping quiet. 

This sent Cheryl on the warpath as she returned home and took the check her mother had from the St. Clair family until her mother opened up about who the elusive drug dealer was. 

Veronica decided she did not want Nick to do anything to anyone else, so she confided in her father and mother that he tried to attack her. This was met with words of wisdom from her parents, who said that they would not accept a dime from the family. 

Later, it was revealed that the family was run off the road and that Nick will be in the hospital for several months. Yes, the Lodges definitely orchestrated the whole thing, and it was well deserved.

Meanwhile, Archie told Jughead the Southside High was going to be raided by Mayor McCoy, and they each agreed to get rid of the Ghoulies to restore normalcy around the town. 

Jug and Archie got into a car race with the Ghoulies, but Archie set the Ghoulies up, and they were arrested. This meant that they were going to jail, but Jug was not impressed because it was a short-term solution. 

The big twist at the close of the hour was that the seemingly nice teacher from Southside High was the drug maker and he was murdered in prison by the Black Hood. 

Oh, and we can’t forget Betty realizing that she’s in control of the whole situation after telling her friends about what happened. 

Will she live to tell the tale again?

We have no idea.

Mariah Carey Accused of Sexual Harassment, Only Liking “Black Guys”

We’ve known for awhile now that Mariah Carey wasn’t very good at singing live.

But we had no idea she was also so terrible at treating people with respect.

This is what a security company alleges, at least, as its owner has threatened to sue the legendary artist for sexual harassment and general misconduct.

According to TMZ, an attorney for Michael Anello is preparing a legal draft in which Anello claims his company did work for Mariah for about two years, starting in June of 2015.

The initial aspect of the official complaint focuses on a supposedly outstanding balance of $ 221,329.51 that Anello alleges he is owed.

He also says Carey promised him two more years of work that would add $ 511,000 to the stiffed tab.

But the issues Anello takes with Mariah go beyond mere money.

He claims the singer often referred to him and his colleagues as members of hate groups, such as the KKK, while also making it clear she “wanted to be surrounded with black guys, not white people.”

The draft lawsuit goes on to allege Carey of sexual harassment, claiming she committed “sexual acts with the intent that they be viewed by Anello.”

Meaning what, exactly?

Anello says, for example, that during a trip to Cabo San Lucas, the star asked him to come to her hotel room to move some luggage.

Simple enough, right?

However, when he got there, she was wearing see-through lingerie that was open and pretty much exposing everything.

He says he tried leaving… but she insisted he move the aforementioned luggage.

Weird and random, but Mariah Carey has long been known to be kind of weird and random.

Those associated with Carey say the singer is willing to settle a few invoices with her ex-employee, but Anello isn’t satisfied with the offers thus far.

The actual filing of the lawsuit is on hold, though, due to these settlement negotiations.

In other unexpected Mariah Carey news, meanwhile, Page Six has learned that the artist recently underwent gastric sleeve surgery in Beverly Hills.

An insider says that “criticism online from body shamers” caused Carey to become self-critical and led to a procedure that involves removing part of one’s stomach.

“Mariah underwent the procedure about a month ago, and she is already seeing some good results, and she feels a lot better,” this source tells The New York Post.

Safe to say we didn’t see either of these Mariah Carey stories coming when we woke up this morning.

What about you?

Kim Kardashian: Huh? Kanye West is Black?!?

Kim Kardashian has a very simple explanation for why she dressed as Aaliyah for Halloween this year.

In a lengthy note on her website, the reality star says she meant no offense by wearing an ensemble that invoked the late R&B singer because she didn’t even realize Aaliyah was African-American.

Kardashian came under pretty harsh fire this week for channeling Aaliyah, who tragically died in a plane crash back in 2002.

A lot of the criticism centered on the concept of cultural appropriation and how some critics thought Kim wasn’t respecting Aaliyah’s ethnicity…

… she was just exploiting it instead for her own self-serving purposes.

The backfire stemmed from a video Kim shared on Instagram last Sunday in which she donned a glimmering bra and large rhinestone choker, including with the footage a caption that simply read:

“Baby Girl Aaliyah.”

Wrote one Twitter user in angry response:

“Legend or not Aaliyah is a black woman and you’re not. It’s offensive and you shouldn’t push this limit.”

In our view, it was stranger that Kardashian dressed up as a dead singer (something she actually did TWICE this week) than it was she dressed up as a person of color.

Except in certain circumstances, it’s just weird to use something as awful as a fatal plane crash as the basis for your Halloween costume.

But here is how Kim defended her decision.

“When I was deciding what I wanted to be for Halloween this year, I had a lot of ideas that I narrowed down to musical icons and my second costume was Aaliyah,” Kardashian wrote on her website yesterday, adding:

“The look was inspired by what she wore in her ‘Try Again’ music video.

“I wore a custom bra top and J Brand leather pants. Ariel Tejada did my makeup and Chris Appleton did my hair.”

Continued the mother of two:

“Aaliyah was such an amazing singer and she will forever be a music legend.

“I saw online that some people thought my costume was in poor taste and I am truly sorry if that offended anyone.”

When Kim thinks of Aaliyah, she says she only thinks about her in the context of her impressive career and influence.

“When I was creating the costume, I wasn’t dressing up as a race or culture but rather as a woman whom I will always admire.

“I play every kind of genre of music in my home and I like for my kids to be exposed to many different artists.”

Last year, North West dressed up like Axl Rose.

This year, Kourtney Kardashian dressed up like Michael Jackson.

Kim referenced both of these costumes in her conclusion:

“For me, it’s always about love and respect. I loved that Kourtney was Michael Jackson for one of her costumes, and that my son was Axl Rose.

We don’t see color in my home. We were paying homage to people and artists we love and respect  it’s that simple!”

Oh, Kim. You had us on your side until the end there.

You don’t see color?!? Come on now.

First, you actually joked with Jennifer Lawrence this week that you’re only attracted to black genitalia.

Second, there’s nothing wrong with seeing color. The idea isn’t too ignore other ethnicities and cultures, it would actually be disrespectful to pretend they don’t exist.

The idea is just to treat everyone equally and fairly and with respect.

What do YOU make of this Kim Kardashian costume controversy, readers?
