K.O. Throws A Mean Right Hook In A Preview Of Next Week’s ‘Katy Keene’
by Rachel Bellwoar
It might not be his place to rub it in, but Guy (Luke Cook) makes a fair point. Katy (Lucy Hale) did decide not to marry K.O. (Zane Holtz), and from the looks of next week’s preview that remark is going to earn Guy a run-in with K.O.’s fist.
Still, it’s not like Guy’s lying. Taunting K.O. might be immature, given Katy just told him she wanted to keep their relationship professional, but what is it with the show not being able to go one episode without making Katy’s storyline about her love life? It wasn’t bad enough that last week’s preview tried to make out like her sex dream with Guy really happened. Anytime Katy seems prepared to get down to business, that business mixes with pleasure.
Josie (Ashleigh Murray) is dating her manager (Lucien Laviscount), and she has a better handle on keeping her personal life separate. What Alex brings to the table as her manager needs to be seriously questioned, though, because there’s no way Josie shouldn’t have known about her songs or that Xandra (Camille Hyde) should’ve been able to crash the Pussycat’s gig.
For being this week’s guest star, Kevin (Casey Cott) and Josie didn’t spend a lot of time together, but I think this is the first we’re being made aware that Katy Keene and Riverdale are on different timelines. Maybe the schedule changes played a role in this, but here Kevin is a high school drama teacher and on Riverdale he hasn’t graduated high school.
As for Jorge (Jonny Beauchamp), working out with Bernardo (Ryan Faucett) would’ve been a nice gesture (and his workout gear was extremely cute). Now it looks like Bernardo was just looking for an excuse to break up. He and Buzz (Eric Freeman) really did Jorge wrong.
Katy Keene airs Thursdays on The CW.
