Alice nearly became Riverdale's next victim on Riverdale Season 3 Episode 13. Her brush with death came at the hands of her eldest daughter, but it's The Farm that has mass-produced this dangerous line of thinking. The path to "ascension" is a big cost.
Alice should count her lucky stars that Betty saved the day. She's the only one thinking clearly.
Betty is so underappreciated for the amount of work she puts in to help her family.
Between Alice, Polly, Hal, and even Chic, Betty had been their guardian angel who saved the day on countless occasions. And yet, they turned on her and scoffed her concerns every chance they got.
If a "baptism" required a waiver excusing death, the right course of action would be to feel concerned. It would be heartless for someone to not care.
