Title From:


  • Conflict Killer: Varchie and Bughead have a major blowup. Then, thieves break into the cabin and hold them hostage. Only Veronica's quick thinking with the panic button ends up saving everyone from being killed.
  • Death by Sex: Played with. All of the kids are sexually active, but Veronica has a fight with Archie and goes down to town with Betty. Then she flirts with a store clerk...and accidentally reveals the four teens are all alone and unprotected. Which is just a thematic extension of the "immorality" of having pre-marital sex.
  • Easily Forgiven: The argument between Archie/Veronica and Jughead/Betty over Jughead's paranoia of Hiram's supposed schemes was soon forgotten (for now) after their ordeal with the masked men breaking in.
  • Evil Is Not Well-Lit: The setting for the scene in which Hiram is cemented as Archie's Evil Mentor.
  • Advertisement:
  • Internal Reveal: Kevin finally learns that his father is cheating on his mother with Sierra McCoy from Josie.
  • It's Personal: Betty was against Jughead's vendetta against Hiram...until the latter buys the newspaper that her parents own. Then, both she and Jughead lash out at Veronica and Archie.
  • Love Triangle: Kevin is in one with Moose and Midge.
  • Product Placement: Several of the characters see the then-upcoming film Love, Simon, and a clip from the film is shown in the episode. An ad for the film also aired during one of the commercial breaks.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Cheryl's mother gives her a brutal one.
  • The Reveal: Cheryl is a lesbian.
  • Shout-Out: The Lodge's cabin "Really is The Last House on the Left".
  • Undying Loyalty: Archie showcases this in this episode, as he defends Hiram and stands by the Lodges. He also keeps quiet about Andre killing one of the thieves that broke into the cabin.
