Ringer Review: There's Two of Them?!?

by at . Comments

Every week on Ringer, Bridget Kelly dances faster and faster, trying to keep up with her web of lies. But it may be too late now.

Finally Bridget (as Siobhan) has to tell everyone that she has a twin she's been hiding. Juliet's reaction was perfect. "Oh Gawd, There's Two of Them?" Other than that, the teen really didn't care. She had a party to get to.

What was Andrew thinking when he said Juliet could run off to Connecticut with her new friend? Seemed like a lot of trust to place in a girl who really hasn't earned any lately. I gave him some credit for at least calling Monica's parents but Juliet finding trouble this weekend was a given.

At least he finally took away something the girl really cared about. The money. That certainly got her attention. Not that she'll starve but life without her limitless credit cards should be more interesting.

Henry didn't seem fazed by the news of Siobhan's twin. I suppose he had other things to worry about. For once, he actually seemed concerned about his missing wife. Nevermind that he cheated on her for months and then destroyed all evidence of her abduction to supposedly save his mistress. Now that Gemma might be dead, he's realized what he threw away. Too little too late.

Poor Gemma. It appeared as though she might truly be dead. I know that was a lot of blood in the house, but somehow I had hoped she'd survived. However, from the looks of that fight with Charlie, it seems unlikely. 

Why was Bridget trusting Charlie with so much information? I know he's her new sponsor but he's also a former addict and in the scheme of things she's known him for all of 10 minutes. I suppose she had to ask someone for help and Charlie had the police connections she needed... but talk about a bad call.

Who the heck is this guy anyway? How is he connected to Siobhan other than he now appeared to be her hired henchman. Now that Charlie's covered his tracks, will Siobhan set up her sister for murder?

Malcolm got away from his captors, only to find out they're following him in hopes of tracking down Bridget. So what does he do? He heads straight for her! How could he be certain he still wasn't being followed? No good can come of Malcolm being in New York.

And couldn't Malcolm go to the cops, tell them he was kidnapped and tortured by Malawi? It's not a murder case but it could still put the bastard behind bars and buy Bridget some time. Just a thought.

The person I felt for the most this week was Andrew. First his newfound trust in his wife was put to the test when he found he'd been married five years and never heard about her twin sister. Now that twin may have something to do with the disappearance of their good friend. His daughter's troubles continued and, to top it off, he's about to learn the baby that now means everything to him doesn't exist. Ouch.

The ultrasound will obviously show that there's no child or at least no heartbeat, but could it show she was never pregnant? Could Bridget get lucky and possibly have this written off as a miscarriage? Or will the truth come out? I don't know how Andrew will deal if he's hit with one more lie. How fast can Bridget spin a new tale if this all goes wrong? I can't wait for next week to find out.

I hope Gemma isn't dead. I loved that Bridget had one person who knew who she was in the show.
This episode was as great as the others. I love the twist at the end. I never saw it coming. To be honest, I truly trusted that sponsor guy.
I also find it funny the police investigator Machado still hasn't started suspecting Siobhan herself. An easy fingerprint test would probably reveal who she really is.
I love Andrew. He is the only character in the show who is so clueless about it all. It's hard not to feel bad for him. When Bridget ever comes out, it's going to destroy him.
As for Henry, I feel bad for him. If Gemma isn't dead, it would be interesting to see if these two can ever work it out.
I don't think Siobhan is as cold as killing a friend so may be she abducted Gemma only. Or may be she is a psycho bitch!
This show is amazing because as much as there are answers, questions always arise. Cannot wait for next week!

I thought this episode was fantastic. There were so many amazing twists that I did not see coming at all. I love Andrew and Bridget/Siobhan. I hope its Bridget and Andrew who ends up together but clearly they have a long road because he thinkins so low of her already. Anyway, I thought this episode was genius. One os the best by far. The only flaw that really annoyed me was Malcolm going straight to Bridget instead of the cops now that this is being brought up.

Great show. Lots of mysteries,lies and who done it. Finaly brigette tells andrew about her twin. Crazy how she was explaining 2 andrew that she had never mentioned her twin because she was disapointed in her when she wa realy talking about herself, crazy. Step daughters reaction priceless. Im glad daddy finaly put his foot down and took away wht his daughter loves, money the one thing that wht enabling her 2 keep on doing drugs. The ultra sound! Wow, wht excuse will she come up w when its discovered she infact is not pregnant? Unless she got pregnant w her sponsor and friend malcolm, but it will only work if the time line adds up but then the elephant in the room will be once the baby is born and looks nothing like daddy andrew and is infact a difrent race. Lol, wht will she say then. Cant wait 2 see how the writers will deal w this dilema.

I can honestly say I love this episode as much as the rest. I also think that Bridget will do the miscarriage thing and I am so happy that Bridget and Andrew kiss because I love them. I am anticipating that the end will be that Siobhan will come back and try to finish off Bridget but Bridget will end up winning and everybody finds out that they been with Bridget all along but they care more for her than they ever did with Siobhan.

*Malcom is black. Sorry for my english. It's eary in the morning here!

I fear that Bridget is pregnant and it's Malcom's. And Malcom's it's black so she can't pretend it's Andrew's. I hope that that's not the case 'cause it will be too predictable...

Bridget: Please tell me you didn't bake.
Malcolm: Hey, I'm trying to celebrate, not kill you.
