Ringer Review: "She's Ruining Everything"

by at . Comments

Bridget's web of lies continued on Ringer this week, as "She's Ruining Everything" featured this twin trying to hide not only her identity but the body of the man she'd shot and murdered.

First off: thank goodness Bridget deleted that message to Malcolm. Confessing to a murder via voicemail is never a a smart idea. I'd ask what she was thinking, but given that she just shot and killed her attacker, I'll give her this moment of stupidity.

Even telling Malcolm seemed very foolish. I know she's all alone in this and she's looking for an ally but anyone could be listening.

My favorite part was watching poor petite Bridget drag that body across the floor, leaving a huge blood smear across the concrete. I hope she bought the value size bottle of bleach. However, I was disappointed that we didn't get to see her try and haul that 200-plus pound body into the trunk. Now that could have been entertaining.

And why would Andrew think the loft was the perfect place for a party? I suppose he was in a bind, but the place was a construction zone. Little did he know about the added bonus of a decomposing body in the corner.

The body in the trunk was a nice touch during the party scene, but eventually it's going to start to smell. And it was certainly disconcerting having Agent Machado walk up as Bridget was moping up a dead man's blood.

The flashbacks were obviously meant to give us some insight into Bridget's past but I found Siobhan's scene the most interesting. She was fed up with her sister, yet wasn't nearly as cold and certainly didn't have the money she has now. Perhaps both came with her marriage.

Slowly, Bridget's going to care more and more about her new "family" and that will make things even more complicated. Heck, it already has. And at some point she'll have to deal with the fact that she isn't actually pregnant. I'm looking forward to her dealing with that twist.

I couldn't say that I cared much about Malcolm other than he's her one link to her past. Correction: there's a second link, the gun she used to kill a man. That fact will definitely come back to haunt her if whoever now has the body decides to analyze the bullet.

Finally, we got another look at Siobhan in Paris. Tough break when your doppleganger sister steals your secret stash. Was Siobhan's plan to kill her siblinh and make the world believe she was dead, therefore having a clean slate with which to start over? If so, what was so horrible with her life that a nice divorce settlement wouldn't cure?

Ringer left us with more questions than answers but that's the fun of this show. I'm looking forward to seeing where this mystery leads next.
