Now having received the official Riverdale blessing via a visit from Veronica (Camila Mendes), Lucy Hale's Katy Keene introduced us to her new NYC life – and those who will end up loving her and helping her (and hindering her) along the way – in last week's The CW series opener.
Now the fun really starts with this week's "Chapter Two: You Can't Hurry Love" (directed by Steve Adelson and written by Michael Grassi), as Katy begins losing control over her own personal life while Jorge's (Jonny Beauchamp) last chance finds him reconsidering his life/career choices – while for Pepper (Julia Chan) and Josie (Ashleigh Murray), it's about finding a way (and the money) to invest in their short-term and long-term goals.
And we can't shake the feeling that the episode title speaks volumes to what that proposal answer's going to be…
"Katy Keene" season 1, episode 2 "Chapter Two: You Can't Hurry Love": SIGNS – With Katy's (Lucy Hale) personal life in a holding pattern, which everyone seems to know about thanks to the newspapers picking up Pepper's (Julia Chan) blog, she can't seem to escape even at work. Josie (Ashleigh Murray) finds a job to help pay the bills but picks up an extra job at a record store, and quickly learns it might be closing, leaving Josie with an idea to help keep it open.
Because of Jorge's (Jonny Beauchamp) outburst at his last audition he finds himself on the outs with the Broadway community. After begging for one last audition and waiting to hear if he got the part, he must decide if he wants to give up performing as Ginger. Meanwhile, Pepper (Julia Chan) finds herself low on cash, but is somehow able to secure a warehouse in which she dreams to open up "The Pepper Plant." Katherine LaNasa, Zane Holtz, Lucien Laviscount and Camille Hyde also star.
Of course, obsessive television fans (like us) no longer live on promos alone – so if you are like us (pretty sure you are), you'll want to see some preview images, too.
No worries – we've got you covered:
