    Where are the police?!

    🚨 Warning: This post contains spoilers! 🚨

    Riverdale is a blessed creation filled with teens who do some of the wildest things on TV.

    So wild, in fact, that I'm pretty sure real life teenagers couldn't even concoct these shenanigans if they tried! So, in no particular order, let's take a minute to marvel at the mischief that the Riverdale teens are getting into, like...

    1. Burning down their enormous mansion just to spite their parents ('cause, ya know, teen angst).

    The CW

    2. Catching serial killers without any regard for their own safety.

    The CW

    3. Doing literally ALL the police work, but also having time to study for the SATs.

    The CW

    4. Getting "gifts" from serial killers and NOT telling any adults.

    The CW

    5. Tracking down a guy who MIGHT be a long lost brother.

    The CW

    6. And asking him to move in even though he's SUPER creepy.

    The CW

    7. But then leaving him to be chased by a serial killer after finding out he faked being their brother, because this show has absolutely no chill.

    The CW

    8. Opening and fully funding their own speakeasy, but still not be old enough to legally drink.

    9. Forming a shirtless school vigilante group and posting a video about it, instead of letting the police do their damn jobs.

    The CW

    10. Getting secretly engaged and then learning they’re actually cousins.

    The CW

    11. And then having twins (!!!) with that same cousin.

    The CW

    12. Getting mauled by a freaking bear and living to tell the tale.

    The CW

    13. Sending anonymous death threats to keep their parents from getting divorced, instead of just talking to them.

    The CW

    14. Chloroforming their parents (?!?) and holding them hostage in the newly christened teen sex bunker.

    The CW

    15. Joining a cult led by Chad Michael Murray.

    The CW

    16. Then learning that the cult is actually harvesting their friends' and families' organs.

    The CW

    17. And then trying to destroy the cult from within using literally whatever means necessary.

    The CW

    18. Helping their parents dispose of a dead body (!!!!) and then never speaking about it again.

    The CW

    19. Performing a blood ritual with their S.O.'s dad, who they totally have a bromance with.

    The CW

    20. And then getting framed for murder by that same dad and spending half their junior year in juvie/on the run.

    The CW

    21. Doing drugs called Jingle Jangle and Fizzle Rocks, and then somehow being able to keep a straight face when talking about them.

    The CW

    22. Raiding a *very* active drug house without any regard for their own safety.

    The CW

    23. Asking their parent — who's also a serial killer — for advice, but then not listening to anything their non-serial killer parents have to say.

    The CW

    24. Joining a prison fight club and nearly getting killed.

    The CW

    25. Oh-so sneakily breaking their friend out of juvie and somehow not getting arrested.

    The CW

    26. And last but certainly not least, performing a strip tease — underscored by "Mad World" — in front of their mother, their boyfriend's dad, and a bunch of other uncomfy adults.

    The CW

    But to those great minds behind all of these wonderful Riverdale high jinks, PLEASE keep them coming.
