Ringer Review: A Secret Revealed
Wow! I really never saw that coming. Not this soon. "It's Gonna Kill Me, But I'll Do It" let one of Ringer's biggest secrets out of the bag and I couldn't be more shocked or delighted.
But let's review the rest of the episode and save the best for last.
Did anyone else find Agent Machado's ability to pop into a room a little creepy? Was it his FBI training that allowed him to sneak up on people like that? It was rather disconcerting but I'm guessing Bridget found his recording more of an issue. Thankfully for her, he interpreted it wrong. He thought that Siobhan was calling about Bridget, not the other way around.
Of course, once he figures out the truth, our mystery may be over... and who wants that?!?
The birthday necklace was a sweet way to give us a glimpse into Bridget and Siobhan's childhood, along with another look at their falling out. Siobhan was furious with her sister and looking to move on when she met Andrew. It appeared she had started to soften towards her sibling but maybe not since she seems to be actively trying to kill her now.
Speaking of Siobhan, she seemed to have men falling all over her. First Andrew, then Henry, now Tyler, who literally got shoved out of her bed and still came back for more. So, was Siobhan simply searching to steal funds or was she out to destroy Andrew? Time will tell.
Henry really wasn't getting the message and I almost felt sorry for the poor sap. Yes, your married lover has gone back to her husband now that she's pregnant. As a writer, you'd think that storyline would be something he'd understand. Then again, writing it and living it are two different things.
Given all of their incredibly compromising conversations with Andrew and Gemma in the same house, you'd think the adulterous couple would have the common sense to close a door. Someone overhearing was really just a matter of time... yet I still didn't expect it when Gemma heard all of their sordid details.
The poor woman looked like she'd just gotten hit with something. The whole thing must have seemed surreal. Her entire reality turned upside down as she sat at this lovely party and the truth sunk in that her husband's lover was her pregnant best friend. Talk about feeling sucker punched.
I don't know what I expected Bridget to do when Gemma threatened to tell Andrew but it certainly wasn't that. How do you explain that you took your sister's identity and have it go well? How does the rest of this conversation follow? Oh, and by the way I think she's dead but I didn't killer her. Really, please believe me. Yikes!
I have no idea where Ringer goes with this, but I can't wait for next week to find out. And that should be the goal of every episode.
