Ringer Season Finale Review: Do You Want More?

by at . Comments

The season finale of Ringer ramped up the action and suspense while giving fans most - but not all - of the big reveals for which they've been waiting.

On last week's episode, crazy Catherine stole the show. But "I'm the Good Twin" was all about Bridget and Siobhan.

Andrew & Bridget Wed

Let's start with Siobhan. The moment Henry started talking about needing a down payment for the house in Chicago I knew he was scamming her. I actually felt a little sad for Siobhan. She's got twins in the NICU and she's planning to start over with the man she loves, until he pulled the rug out from under her.

When Henry walked away without even looking at those test results I suspected he already knew the truth. Siobhan's lies finally caught up with her, as they should, but I didn't think Henry had any right to act so self righteous. When he wasn't acting gullible he could be just as devious as Siobhan. Heck, he actually killed a man. 

Kicking the woman he said he loved to the curb with her newborn twins was pretty cold, even if they weren't his.

Cut over to Bridget. The vow renewal ceremony would have been lovely. Bridget even inspired Andrew to poetry. But in the end it was never meant to be. There was no way Andrew was going to hear the truth and want to forgive, forget and love again. If Bridget thought that she was fooling herself.

In one of the entertaining Ringer quotes, Bridget obviously knew what was coming…

That pedestal he puts me on, it's a long way to fall. | permalink

That's not to say that I don't hope that Andrew and Bridget won't somehow find their way back to one another. It would be great to see them get to know one another as Andrew and the real Bridget but there are a lot of lies to get passed before that happens. 

Andrew and Juliet rightfully felt betrayed but I did like how it bonded the two of them together. Between Catherine, Bridget and Siobhan, the two must feel as though they're surrounded by crazy, manipulative liars.

I loved that the final confrontation with Macawi involved both Siobhan and Bridget. Siobhan stabbing him in the leg with a high heel was apropos. It's about time someone found a decent use for those things.

Siobhan's weird looking shiny black gloves almost distracted me from Macawi's huge knife, too. Almost.

Apparently Bridget hasn't watched enough horror movies. You should always shoot the bad guy multiple times. If you only shoot him once he's likely to get up and attack you again. Of course blowing his head off works too.

So at the end of the finale we still don't officially know where Malcolm is. Yes, they found a body that could be his but we've heard that before.

My biggest disappointment was that we didn't get an actual confrontation between the two sisters. I was certain we'd have that for the finale and felt a little cheated that we didn't. 

But Bridget now knows that her sister is alive and tried to have her killed. I suppose that's something.

So as the season ends both sisters have lost everything. Neither Bridget nor Siobhan are quitters, which means they'll both be vying to get their lives back. The problem is, they want the same one.

As we all wait to hear if Ringer will continue, do you think the show deserves a second season and if so, what do you want to see in it?

Please!!!!!PLEASE!!!!!PlEaSe!!!! Bring back RINGER!!! The show was amazing and they left me wanting so much more. Someone above made an awesome comment that all these silly little reality shows are taking over the television. The show "RINGER" had an incredible story line with real suspense and drama that left me wanting The next week to hurry back around. I truly hope that some Network if not CW (who obviously has no sense when it comes to real talent) will pick this show back up. I really loved Sarah Michelle Gellar's double role. She was truly effective. All the actors were great! BUT, Please bring the show back. I will comment wherever I have to, to see it come back. ���� that damn show!!! ��������

Ringer needs to come back. This is such bull. Every time a good show comes on they cancel it. Me and many people I know are thinking of boycotting the CW. They do this all the time. Especially considering where they left off with the show. At least they could of brought a 3 series ending to finish it off right. To just cancel and leave us hanging what a messed up network!!!!!

ringer needs to be renewed for a 2nd season. CW that was not a good move. Ringer was better than any other show on your network. The creators should take it to another network

This is one of the best shows that I have seen in such a long time, and CW just cancels it! We need to make ourselves known to other networks that we want it back!

Ringer was the one of the best shows I've seen on the CW in awhile. The drama and suspense kept you on the tip of your seat wanting more. Sarah Michelle Gellar played her role perfectly. I hope they reconsider and make a Season 2. Shows with an all-star cast like this and a story line that keeps you wanting more comes around once in a lifetime. We the loyal fans need answers to the questions this series has given us! You won't regret it!!!!
