Riverdale season 2 episode 18 live stream: Watch online


Riverdale performs the musical Carrie. This is what you need to know about Riverdale’s season 2 episode 17 live stream and how to watch online.

This is not a drill, Riverheads. Riverdale takes on Carrie: The Musical and now we get to see our favorite abs and cheekbones sing and dance.

This show has never been afraid to take risks with form and genre, but tonight’s musical ode to the frightening teen horror play (and film of the same name) has real promise. Aside from its thematic parallels — sadistic mean girls, meddling and frightening parents, attempted murders — it also offers up the kind of camp we love to see Riverdale roll around in.

The trailer offers a little sneak peak to tonight’s treat. It peppers in cryptic snatches of other Riverdale-y stuff like a ransom note and menacing confrontations among major players.

However, in advance of tonight’s big premiere, Riverdale has dropped two numbers from the episode that look like a heck of a lot of fun.

Here’s “A Night We’ll Never Forget:”

And here’s more sinister and compelling “In:”

After a three week break, it’s a power move to come back with an episode that will surely pack a lot of buzz among fans. I, for one, know I’m pretty pumped to get my eyes on this bit.

Taking cues from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Grey’s Anatomy, and How I Met Your Mother, Riverdale has big shoes to fill. When it comes to translating a television episode into a musical format, it’s definitely not as easy as it looks. Sometimes it goes really well (paging Buffy’s “Once More With Feeling”) but other times it can change the way we see our favorite shows. Let’s hope it’s the former.
