Two major developments went down on the 2011 finale of Ringer, both of which will have a major impact when the show returns on January 10:
- Gemma was killed.
- Bridget and Sibhan are now in the same city.
In response to the first issue, producer Eric Charmelo tells TV Guide the return episodes will take place "almost in real time, so there will have been a mourning period," while fellow producer Nicole Snyder adds that Henry "has to direct his anger towards something and someone, and that target becomes Bridget."
Now that Siobhan is back in New York City, you have these two sisters playing this chess game, and the stakes are much higher because they are in the same city. Ultimately, paths will cross.
With the focus off Gemma in 2012, Bridget "can return to the original mystery," Snyder teases," saying questions established in the pilot will come back in to play. To wit:
Who is trying to kill Siobhan? Why and how is she going to stop them?
Also, yes, the siblings' "paths will cross" at some point, Charmelo promises: "You have these two sisters playing this chess game, and the stakes are much higher because they are in the same city."
