Ringer has hit it off with high ratings since its premiere last week, but that truly is no surprise. We have been thrown into a world where there is no way out from the problems. Running away from her own life and her problems Bridget didn’t stop to think that what she knew about Siobhan rarely scratched the surface of all the secrets she was hiding. After killing a man in self defense Bridget has no idea how to cover up her tracks. Through an hour long episode we watch anxiously as Bridget tries to hide a dead mans body from her best friend, who is trying to the bottom of her husbands affair, and from her husbands work cocktail party. In between that she is dodging the detective Victor, still faking a pregnancy (I wonder how she’s going to pull that off), and bonding on emotional levels with her husband and his daughter Juliet.
What makes this show so intriguing is the raw emotion of the characters. Siobhans relationship with her husband has been falling apart pretty obviously (possible sexy co-worker threat?) and while we all thought Bridget was the messed up sister we see that Bridget would be a better wife than Siobhan was. Andrew points that out saying “It was like I had the old Siobhan back. Don’t go away again.” But what happened to Siobhan that she so drastically changed?
While plotting to run away with Malcolm, Bridget soon learns that she has to stay. After repeatedly running into Juliet, who is quite the hot mess, she see’s a lot of her past in Juliet’s actions- the drinking, the drugs, the need to feel accepted and loved. In some weird way she feels the need to help Juliet with her struggle and in that touching bathroom scene when she asks Juliet what she wants her to do Juliet replies “don’t leave” and we have the making of a beautiful mother-daughter relationship.
Making up her mind that she is going to stay and tough it out for the people that need Siobhan she ditches Malcolm, but I think Malcolm is soon to have some problems of his own with a serial killer horror movie style flashing his lights at him in a parking lot.
As Bridget finally attempts to clean up the mess (aka the dead body) she realizes it has dissapeared from her clever hiding spot. Meanwhile real Siobhan is in Paris trying to withdrawal money from her account which Bridget conveniently took out the day before. She makes an angry “This has to get done, She’s Ruining Everything” phone call, but come on Shiv did you really think you would leave your sister and she would need your money? Whats she ruining? Who is the man that eerily crashed the party? What happened to the dead body? I just have so many questions.
Also, GREAT music choice today. I especially loved Little Deschutes by Laura Veirs. Seriously just added more goosebumps for me.
Ringer- I’m the Good Twin
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??
Ringer- Its Called Improvising, Bitch!
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
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.”
- 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.
