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?

We live in world that cant handle a good show. This world would rather watch honey boo boo and housewives then a show that has a good story line and keeps you guessing. Thats why i dont watch tv anymore because everything i ever like gets cancelled. Birds of prey witches of eastwick ect. Go figure. I wish they would have left us wanting more cuz now we wont get to see what happens

I think it is unfair that it doesn't even get a chance at a second season PLZ RECONSIDER!!!!!

PLEASE bring Ringer back for a new season!! It was literally the perfect show in all aspects: excellent cast, stupendous scriptwriting, phenomenal direction, gorgeous sets, amazing soundtrack... All of the elements for quality film were put into a television series!! And there are still SO MANY of us devoted fans demanding more!! It would absolutely be the CW's advantage to bring this show back on the air, especially after the massacre of this current year's shows they released.

Ringer was awesome - it has to be continued.
It`s interesting, sexy and dangerously.
And Andrew has to forgive Bridget - they love each other.
And Siohban has to be punished - she`s really a whore and a bad person.
So, please... - we need a Season 2!
Go on Ringer.!
