Ringer-What we have is worth the pain

Published

“I told you they would kill to keep their secret.”

One thing I cannot stand is having my mind messed with. One minute we believe that Andrew is capable of murder the next minute he is saving Siobhan’s life and turning over a new leaf. I feel like Ringer is turning into a murder mystery a la Pretty Little Liars and I’m sitting here trying to figure out what happened to half the cast and who killed who. For one thing Siobhan is back in New York which means trouble ahead for everybody. Henry was thinking clearly for a good 2 minutes before she had him wrapped around her finger again and convinced that having Bridget die was the best thing for everyone. We even found out the reason why Siobhan hates Bridget so much and yeah it doesn’t go any deeper than her anger at her sister for killing her son. The story I remember Bridget telling was one that happened even before Bridget was using. She was the caretaker and it happened on pure accident, so why is Siobhan holding such a grudge? Somewhere in this episode you could tell that the sisterly love still remained though, despite Siobhan’s anger she still loved her sister. 


We’re slowly piecing all the pieces of the puzzle together. The hit-man from the first couple of episodes that was going after Siobhan, well yeah he was hired by Andrew. Before Bridget came and brought love back into a doomed relationship Andrew was so miserable that he hired a hit-man to kill Siobhan. Those flashbacks that showed him threatening Siobhan were literally terrifying because they portrayed a man we seem to have never met. Not until now that is. The whole reason why Bridget has found herself in her sisters shoes is because Siobhan found a way out. She knew her husband wanted to kill her so she left to Paris to try and bring to ponzi scheme to life. Everything was actually going according to her plan but she miscalculated one thing. If Bridget didn’t have Juliet on her side than Andrew might have actually went through with killing Siobhan, but Juliet was like his guiding light that helped him figure out that Siobhan makes them a family. That’s probably why he ended up saving Siobhan from gunshots. But who was trying to kill her than? The text messages to come to the loft were sent from Malcolm’s phone. Truthfully the most surprising part in this whole episode was that Soloman, the secret driver, is more observant than anyone else in Siobhan’s life. It didn’t take him very long to figure out that Siobhan is actually Bridget, but even her closest family isn’t able to tell. 


The writers never show what happened after Andrew visited Malcolm, but right after that visit Malcolm dissapeared. Never showed up to testify. Now things aren’t looking to bright for Andrew especially since Machado now knows that he stole the surveillance tapes from Malcolm’s hotel. What is he trying to hide? Could he really have killed Malcolm? But if Andrew did than who was shooting at the loft? There are just too many loopholes. Although Andrew looks suspicious part of me believes that he really is harmless. Olivia on the other hand has Tyler’s blood all over her hands. But who has the flash drive that could expose Martin Charles? Is Bridget really THAT good of a liar or did someone else get to it before they did? Or was the flash drive a fake all along?


The Juliet story is predictable. The minute that boy approached her by the elevator it was clear what his intentions were. Girls are just so gullible. But in reality none of this is Juliet’s fault…Her mother is to be blamed. Now things are getting pretty un-safe for both of the girls and its only a matter of time before the Juliet gets the wind knocked out of her. If Juliet’s scheme and the ponzi scheme both blow up at the same time there will be some serious hell to pay. That is if Andrew survives.

Ringer- I’m the Good Twin

Published

“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

“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.
