Ringer Review: Beware of the Sleepy Time Tea
"If You're Just an Evil Bitch Then Get Over It" featured Catherine doing anything but getting over it. In fact, she embraced her evil bitch persona with gusto.
If anyone thought that after last week's Ringer episode Catherine was going to lick her wounds and slink away, they were woefully mistaken. Instead Catherine inflicted more wounds... on herself.
That was such a great scene as Catherine clung to Andrew, swearing that she just wanted to explain things to Juliet as we saw the blood dripping down her arms, onto Andrew's shirt. That's when I began to understand just how broken Catherine was. Well, almost.
I couldn't help but feel for Juliet. The poor kid was being pulled along on her mother's emotional roller coaster ride. With all of the lies and deception she couldn't even trust that this was a real suicide attempt.
Then to have Catherine confess that she never really wanted kids and that when she and Andrew divorced, she gave Juliet to her father because she knew he loved her more. Ouch!
And in one of the great Ringer quotes that inspired the episode title, Juliet told her mother:
If you're sick, I want you to get better but if you're just an evil bitch, then get over it. | permalink
I knew that Catherine had hired the hit on Siobhan but somehow that didn't seem quite as twisted as personally handing her the sleepy time tea. Never take a drink from strangers or crazy evil bitches.
On the other side of town, Henry was getting hauled off to jail. Lesson to be learned? Don't cheat on your wife when her husband is rich and vengeful. Tim was out to destroy Henry and Siobhan and I didn't really blame him, especially after what these two put poor Gemma through. They deserve a little torture.
Again, Bridget and Siobhan got closer to coming face-to-face but honestly I knew it wasn't going to happen so it didn't hold much suspense. That said I'm sure we'll get that scene before the season's over.
Agent Machado might be on suspension but he's doing as much investigating as ever. He even found the man Bridget shot and killed stuffed in a freezer. Who knew he'd end up being Bridget's ally once again, even if he doesn't realize it.
As we wait for next week, do you think Andrew, Juliet, or Machado will be able to save Bridget? I honestly don't believe she's in mortal danger, but I do believe it will go down to the final minutes of her survival. Siobhan looks like she's about to have those twins any day now. And again... what the heck happened to Malcolm? What's your theory?
