Ringer Review: Who's the Devil Now?

at . Comments

As I've said for probably half of my reviews of Ringer, I never saw it coming. And unlike last week, the twists and turns in "What We Have Here is Worth the Pain" had me on the edge of my seat...

Andrew's nasty side. Since the majority of what we've seen of Andrew this season has been him romancing Bridget, it came as a bit of a shock to see him threaten to kill Siobhan via flashback. I couldn't blame Siobhan for being scared. He looked damned serious.

Strong Arming

But did that mean he actually hired a hit man? It could have been Olivia behind the assassin. I honestly couldn't say either way, but Siobhan was obviously convinced her hubby wanted her dead.

The moment of truth. The most shocking scene for me took place when Siobhan came clean with Henry. Well, mostly. She told him more of the truth than I thought she ever would but I suppose Tyler's death limited her options. She needed an ally and that role has fallen to Henry.

Of course, she didn't tell him he's most likely NOT the father of her twins. That would certainly put a damper on things.

The other thing that surprised me was that Henry seemed perfectly fine with Siobhan setting her sister up to die yet again. It's one thing to know what happened in the past, but now Henry was actively participating, as his text messages kept Bridget away from the office so that Siobhan could threaten Andrew. It made me wonder what Henry's truly capable of.

The hero returns. Just when I was about to write Andrew off, he found Bridget and professed his undying love. He wanted to work things out, no matter what. That doesn't sound like a man who hired someone to kill his wife. Nor does jumping in front of a bullet to save her.

Across town, poor Juliet couldn't catch a break. She truly is a naive high school girl if she so easily handed out her cell phone to the cute guy who accosted her by the elevator. Thankfully, she quickly learned he didn't just have an air of danger. He was downright deadly. 

Now she knows just how twisted her mother is and it sent her running to Bridget. Unfortunately, Bridget was busy running out the door in the hopes of finding Malcolm.

So where the heck is Malcolm anyway and who killed Tyler? Will Andrew survive? What will Siobhan do when she hears Andrew jumped in front of a bullet to save her sister? Were you able to hang on for all the twists and turns on this week's Ringer?

Ringer is just too crap. I managed to watch until they killed off the redhead. Game of Thrones or The Killing.


ps: I also don't get why she had Gemma abducted!


I love this show and everything makes a lot of sense now! The one thing I don't get is how did Henry accept Siobhan wanting to kill Bridget. Was it because she merely said she had killed her son and not the truth, which was that it was an accident?! I want to shake them both and yell that it was an accident! It wasn't her fault and it shocks me that someone would want to kill their own sister over that!


I definitely agreed that Ringer has been so awesome. It has been renewed for a second season few months ago. I guess the best that can happen in the finale is Bridget learning that Siobhan is alive and meet her face to face. It's just kinda sad seeing Bridget still think her sister killed herself.
I love Solomon and I hope he doesn't turn out to be a bad guy. He's just been very helpful and awesome to Bridget and compared to Malcolm? I will take Solomon any day.
Andrew confuses me from scene to scene. Is he bad or good? He did threatened Siobhan then he lied about his whereabout at Malcolm's place. But then again, he wanted to make things right and he took a bullet for Bridget.
And I love Juliet deeper and deeper. Now, she found out her mom is a big fat liar and how sweet when she blurted out, "I wish Siobhan was my mother". Oh, honey, "You wish Bridget was your mother." Siobhan is as ugly as Catherine.
And Henry and Siobhan continued to be the worst people ever on the show. Period.


Siobhan is still lying though - she reeled Henry in by blaming Bridget for Gemma's death, when in truth, she had nothing to do with it. I basically just can't stand Siobhan, she's evil. Bridget didn't kill her son, a car did.


Oh my God Ringer is SO good!

I said last week Andrew was not a murderer and I was right, while his temper is scary he is trying to protect himself and everyone he loves.
I still stay Olivia killed Tyler she had the flash drive in her hand and it was someone he knew. Also I am sure the person she talked to on the phone when she was in the limo was the person she sent to kill Bridget.
I like Solomon I hope he remains as a good guy helping Bridget and he knows her secret and as he said Siobhan writes the checks so he will never spill that she is Bridget.
I felt that the whole scene in the lobby with Juliet and Chase was creepy and weird, but I knew immediately that he was the one that beat the crap out of Tessa.

This show has to get renewed! It is so good!
Siobhan is an awful person! Bridget did not kill her son, it was a car accident, but she needed to get Henry back on her side after she admitted so sleeping with him. Sorry but Henry will get all he deserves eventually, I really hope he ends up feeling super bad for helping Siobhan. He has his doubts and everytime I think that he is smartening up he just believes all the stuff she says.
Where is Malcolm? What happened to him?


i absolutely LOVED this episode!!!


Has anyone ever considered that Henry may have been the one who killed Tyler?? It seemed as though that person could have easily overheard Tyler and Siobhan on the phone right before he was killed. Then in this episode Henry was asking about her sleeping with Tyler and said that he too saw the body. Olivia could have been give the flash drive by Tyler seeing as it was a dummy drive anyway.
