Ringer Review: What Are You Hiding?

at . Comments

Another Ringer episode, another incident of head-spinning and question-asking: What was Bridget thinking? What was her game plan?

"The Poor Kids Do It Everyday" featured Henry bleaching down his walls as Juliet started her first day at public school. Perhaps they were both looking for a fresh start.

Henry v. Bridget

Henry's idea about leaving the car at the airport seemed like a particularly bad one. At some point they're going to find it and then they're going to check all of those security cameras they have at JFK International and guess what they'll see. It could be the nail in his proverbial coffin.

I was shocked when Henry tried to turn everything around on Siobhan. Did he really think he was saving her when he was mopping up his wife's blood? Does he love Siobhan that much or was he simply covering his own ass?

For Juliet's first day of school, meanwhile, I couldn't believe Andrew didn't make her change her top, too. It was just as fabric-challenged as the skirt. 

Did anyone else question her new teacher's helpfulness or am I too suspicious? Was he trying to be a nice guy and give her a new start or was he looking to take advantage of the poor little rich girl with daddy issues and this was the first step? Call me a cynic, but I don't trust him.

I know I've said it before but I've grown tired of Malcolm's storyline. This was the third week we've seen Makawi pump him full of drugs. If there's a point, I wish the show would get to it.

Elsewhere, Charlie is still a mystery. Bridget's new sponsor is the wild card in this conspiracy. I'm still not sure how he figures into all of this, but there's clearly a lot going on here. Stay tuned. Stay guarded.

I was beginning to think that Gemma set up Henry but they have two kids. That would be really cold and cruel. Then, when they found Bridget's fingerprint I was wondering if Gemma set them both up. That's what Ringer often does: leave you wondering. And guessing. And waking up at random hours of the night with new theories about what's going on.

But Bridget left the print. Was that her way of throwing them off the scent of her and Henry? Unfortunately, it brought Agent Machado back to her doorstep but maybe she thinks she can handle him.

So... is Gemma really dead? Did Siobhan have her killed and, if so, to what end? What the heck happened and how long will we have to wait to find out? Whatever the answers, I grow more intrigued with every episode.
