With her parents back together, Veronica finds herself stuck in the middle of their parenting styles. Hiram has been away in prison and hasn't done much while Hermione is trying to rein her daughter back in. Who will win in this familial war?
Pop Tate's Chock'lit Shoppe has been hit hard since the recent robbery with the gunman. The beloved Shoppe is closing its doors! But, our favorite "girl-next-door Nancy Drew" isn't ready for it to go out without a fight.
Veronica: What the hell is a "Sticky Maple"? Kevin: It's kinda what it sounds like. It's a Riverdale thing. Veronica: No, Kevin, it's a slut-shaming thing. And I'm neither a slut nor am I going to be shamed by someone named, excuse me, Chuck Clayton! Does he really think he can get away with this? Does he not know who I am?! I will cut the brakes on his supped-up phallic symbol.
Hermione: So, because you’re so determined to paint your father as a villain, you assume he must have put a hit on Fred Andrews? Do you? Veronica: Not him. You. I don’t think you’re an innocent pawn, Mom. I think you’re Daddy’s eyes and ears on the ground calling the shots. Hermione: You genuinely believe that? Veronica: If the Manolo Blahnik fits. [Hermione gets up] Hermione: Miha, your disrespect will no longer be tolerated. Not by me and certainly not by her father when he comes home. So word of advice: get back in line with this family. Because you are a Lodge before anything else. [She learns forward] Hermione: I should slap you for what you’re insinuating, but I’m not a violent person.
