Ringer- Maybe we can get a dog instead

“He thought the withdrawal would make me give you up”

How much more twisted can this show get? And how oblivious can some of these characters stay? For the amount of scheming they involve themselves in, they should really be more cautious and aware of things happening around them.

 

Bridget found a very clever escape from her “fake pregnancy”. It still shocks me that everything she says is just so believable to Andrew and the doctors wouldn’t give her more tests to actually see if she was ok. I thought Andrew would think she purposely got rid of the baby or something. Something more dramatic then the pity party for her “loss.” It also kind of astonished me that Andrew got so mad at her that he said without the baby he didn’t know where their relationship stood. It was fine when Henry said that because well Bridget let him go, but Andrew cannot base his marriage on a baby. I also wish we got an update on Siobhans pregnancy. Is she going to tell Tyler that he is the father of the baby to keep him around now. I mean she is screwed. Now that he broke up with her she has nowhere to stay and no money. She should have probably did a background check to see who he worked for. When I saw Andrew calling Tyler and inviting him to New York to offer him a position I was like things are about to get insane!!!! Then Bridget wanted to join in for the dinner but Andrew was mad  at her so he kind of ignored her. I assumed they were in the clear but then Bridget surprised them all by showing up for the company dinner. This was good for Andrew and her relationship with her husband but really bad for the real Siobhan. Its also hilarious that she introduced herself as Siobhan cause then when he called to break up with the real one he called her by her real name. It all came full circle. My question still remains- when he leaned over and asked why she introduced herself to him as Cora before, wouldn’t Bridget be like wait… he thinks he’s seen me before oh my god is my twin alive? He basically handed that one to her!

 

Malcolm is addicted to drugs again. It is really painful to watch, especially when they show flashbacks of his time in AA and how good he was doing without it. When Bridget gave him that wad of money I knew it was going to go downhill from there. When I saw him shooting up the heroine I almost couldn’t watch! Cops found him shortly and he was interrogated by agent Machado who is very persistent on finding Bridget. He put “Siobhan” in a weird place because when she went to meet Malcolm to finally talk he had her wired in listening devices to see if Malcolm would say anything about her whereabouts. She had to pray to God that Malcolm would play along with her “I am Siobhan” story. Her note to him on the waiters menu was awesomely clever. I feel bad for the guy though. He, unlike Bridget cannot start over and hide behind someone else’s life. He has no one, cannot trust anyone, is on the run, and a relapsed addict. He turns to Shiv for help who obviously gives it to him but how long can she help him before it becomes suspicious, Andrew becomes jealous, and everyone finds out who she really is. As much as it pains me to say this, Malcolm is actually posing a threat to Bridget by staying with her.

 

There are good changes happening with Juliet (so I guess taking her trust fund away keeps her from buying so many drugs) but then she goes and pulls a move on her teacher. Although yes I called that this would be a teacher-student affair I never wanted her to make a move on him first. That is wrong on so many levels and can cause a lot of mayhem if caught or reported. Usually with situations like this it is the teacher making the move on the student so I guess it is a new and interesting change to the story. I wonder if the teacher really “doesn’t like her like that” or if he is just trying to be professional about it. Will he cave? I assume he will and that mean bully girl will walk in on it and try to sabotage them both? Something along those lines.

Other Thoughts
      When will Bridget realize Charlie is playing her? Brining Malcolm to Charlie’s house was probably the worst idea she could have had. Does he want him dead? Is Siobhan trying to kill everyone off? Why? What is her end goal?
      Where is Macawi? Is he secretly spying on all of them?
      How will Siobhan get out of this mess? She doesn’t have a hit man in Paris so it will be harder to get rid of (her bf).
      I wish they would show more scenes including Siobhan so I could better get a feel for her.
      These people really need to learn to not talk about secrets and important matters out in the open.
      Will Bridget stay with Andrew or come clean because she is in love with Malcolm? His jealous was very clear this episode.

Ringer- I’m the Good Twin

Published

on


“I knew you were too good to be true… Bridget”

Oh My, What a season finale! For every horrible or un-clear Ringer episode we have been given the finale and they literally pulled out all the stops on this weeks episode. For starters what are we going to focus on now that Botoway Macawi is dead???? That, aside from many side story lines, was our major concern. What will agent Machado do now? And does this mean that Bridget is finally safe to get her well deserved second chance??


Bridget really did become a better person in the 7 months that she knew Andrew and Juliet. As messed up as she was before, she was always a better person than Siobhan. All Siobhan does is destroy the things around her because of her need for vendetta. Her sister never intentionally killed Sean, but because of that mentality she hasn’t been able to let go, so she holds on to what’s safe. And in order to keep Henry, she needs to lie. Except that it seems Henry grew some…. and was finally one step ahead of her. He caught her in a lie and realized that she’s the reason his life is falling apart. A woman that is capable of killing her own sister is definitely not a woman that can be trusted. Without any remorse he literally just threw her out onto the street. I have never been prouder in my life. 

If Bridget wanted too she could have kept her real identity hidden. She could have went on a great vacation, with a man that was deeply in love with her and she could have gotten married and lived happily ever after, but she would always live with that guilt. The guilt that she was lying to the people she loved most. So she told the truth. Of course, after revealing that you’ve been impersonating your twin sister for 7 months its perfectly understandably that everyone would push you to the curb. What really pissed me off is that no one really asked why she did what she did? Sure, Catherine is mentally sick so thats her excuse but Bridget has a legit reason too! She was being chased down by a psychotic murderer….. If thats not a valid excuse I don’t know what is.

But than we come to that pulse rising, heart stopping scene in the loft where Bridget realizes that Macawi is in the building, but Siobhan is already being attacked by him. I had absolutely no idea how this was going to end I just knew that the it was about time Bridget realized Siobhan was alive and playing her. I didn’t think Bridget had it in her to shoot someone but than I guess if she didn’t shoot him he would have killed her without thinking twice about it. What really caught me off guard was when Bridget came into Henry’s apartment and demanded answers and he told her the truth! He really is on this whole honesty kick! My assumption for next season is that Henry is going to team up with Bridget to get revenge on Siobhan and Arbergast. I know if I was Bridget my number one priority now that Macawi is dead would be to get revenge on my manipulative, lying sister. 

 I also think that Andrew will come around and realize that although Bridget lied to him, he hated Siobhan, but was able to make a life with Bridget that actually left him happy. Not once in those 7 months was Bridget a threat nor did she come off as a prostitute druggie. He couldn’t even tell the difference between them both. Plus, once he finds out that Bridget was set up and lied to by Siobhan, he might think differently about the whole situation. Plus Juliet really bonded with Bridget and Bridget really is the reason that they were a family.  But what’s going to happen when Andrew realizes the real Siobhan is alive and just gave birth to his twins? I swear it is like one day your life is going smoothly and the next your on a sinking ship. Either way, the producers, Eric Charmelo and Nicole Snyder, really did one on us with this episode! It’ll be exciting to begin a second season with a whole new motive and storyline.

Ringer- Its Called Improvising, Bitch!

“I mean whose life is so pathetic that they have to pretend to be someone else?”

Sorry for the late Ringer update but believe it or not it actually wasn’t on Tuesday where I’m at but rather aired Sunday night. Nonetheless, it was full of OMG and gasp moments! How many of you are happy that Catherine is finally locked away??? You know Machado was fired from his job for being too into his cases, well someone needs to be since the police are not capable of protecting the innocent. But that love triangle with Olivia threw me for a curve. This just proves that Catherine really isn’t all there and all she needs is someone to comfort her. First it was the whole scam with the teacher, who she was sleeping with. Now she planned to kill Siobhan cause she stole her husband so she slept with his partner… Clearly not all up there. It really is unfortunate that Juliet has to witness all of this. I wonder what this all means for Martin Charles now that the police know its a ponzi scheme and they finally found Olivia. 


But lets talk about the problems that Henry and the real Siobhan might have. While Henry may or may not go to jail, Siobhan tried messing with the case again. She was at the scene where the witness took too much cocaine and died right than and there. Truly sad but my question is when the cops get there and they will, wont they check the place out? If she left those passports I’m sure they have her finger prints on them. Anyways, the closet really isn’t the most convenient place to go into labor but unfortunately for Siobhan thats what happened. I assume that she had two twin girls, which kind of make the odds of the kids being Henry’s more believable because he already has twins. Either way, Henry is definitely faking being in “love” with Siobhan since he asked for a paternity test. Do you guys think the kids are his? Wouldn’t it be something if they were actually Andrews! Seems to me that if Henry had to throw Shiv under the bus to save himself and get his boys back he definitely would.



This brings me to Bridget. After hearing Catherine call her pathetic for living someone else’s life she hit a weak spot. This is the moment where Bridget will realize she has to tell the truth about who she is, but she is risking loosing Andrew and Juliet and going back on the streets. Jail is even an option if Macahdo finds out. Is honesty really worth it at this point? Although maybe its better if she tells the truth because the lid is bound to come off sometime. Does no one really catch on that Siobhan just gave birth to twins at a hospital, while Siobhan was a hostage at home with her husband and daughter? I mean really, someone please make the connection. What do you guys think will happen on the season finale? Preview spoiler alert: Macawi is getting his revenge on “the wrong girl.” Whichever the right girl is anyways.

Ringer- If You’re Just an Evil Bitch Than Get Over It

Published

“Lucky for me dead men don’t talk.”

With the ways things were going it was just a matter of time before someone went completely crazy on Ringer. That is if Catherine wasn’t already looney. I don’t think many sane people hire hit men on their ex husband’s new wives, no matter how jealous they are. I will admit that this was well played on the writers parts. I knew Catherine would go to extremes but to physically try to kill Siobhan. And after she slit her own wrists only to make Andrew feel guilty for her pain. That’s ridiculous. Its actually a surprise Juliet is still “normal” with a mother like that. As most of the episode seemed to be pretty bland and monotonous, Catherine really brought on the drama. And while danger seems to be following Bridget’s middle name, its a good thing Machado is still working on the case despite getting put on probation. We need more cops like him around. Cops that are willing to break the rules and do some illegal sh*t just to get to the bottom of something. (By the way how creepy is it that that guy was actually hiding a dead, frozen body in the basement of his house. A house that his wife and kids lived in. Gross). Anyways, the fact that Machado got the finger prints for the picture means that Catherine cannot get away with staging Siobhan’s “murder.”


Siobhan really just destroys everything she touches. She ran from a marriage with a husband that hated her and a step daughter that despised her. Yet, when Bridget took over she somehow pieced the whole family together. Its because of Siobhan that Gemma is dead. Now Henry has lost his boys and is going down for the murder of Tyler. If thats not enough, Siobhan tried to fix the situation by paying the maid to change her statement. You know you may be able to manipulate Henry Shiv, but other people will do the ethical thing when it comes to testifying against a murder. How long before she gives up the charade and reveals herself. I mean these people must really be clueless since they haven’t figured out that for some reason multiple people keep claiming to have seen Siobhan in places Bridget hasn’t been. Piece the puzzle together Bridget, it will really bring some new light to your world. She caught on to Henry’s lies its about time to realize that your sister is full of them. 

Aside from the psycho ex wife and screwed over Henry, the show has sort of lost direction. Yes, they picked up the hit man storyline again and cleared that one up, but in the process we lost the Macawi storyline. After all this time why is he still looking for Bridget? Is her life not in danger anymore? And truthfully, how the hell will everyone get out of this mess sane? Seems that the odds are against Henry, Siobhan is going to pop her unborn child out any minute, Bridget may or may not live and Andrew and Juliet are going to need LOTS of therapy after they lock Catherine up in an institute. Oddly enough, she really is the only one that shows any emotion in this show. 

Memorable Quotes
  • Catherine: I just want to die.
  • Machada: Do you have any idea who might want you dead?
  • Arbergast: I will make you and Siobhan pay for what you did. 
  • Juliet: If your sick I want you to get better but if your just an evil bitch than get over it.
  • Siobhan: I don’t care about revenge if I lose you.
