A Whole New Kind Of B*tch



Holy sh*t!! What the hell is going on here? What a cliffhanger!! Gemma is seemingly dead? At least that's what they are implying at the end of the episode with the blood stained walls.  This episode was all about damage control for  Bridget / "Siobhan" to tie up loose ends that could lead everyone to know who she really is and at the forefront was Gemma, who did a 180 and pulled Siobhan tactic of her own and tried to blackmail Bridget into...what else...sleeping with her Husband so that she would have leverage in divorce court. Well played....not. You're dead!

Ha. I don't think she really is. But it's a nice twist at the end. Yo Ganthc, don't spoil anything for me till I get a chance to watch this weeks episode which won't be online till next week....or at least put spoiler tags around it. This series is too good to have it ruined. I have been avoiding spoilers everywhere, even when they run promo's for the upcoming episode on TV, I have to switch the channel as fast as possible.

Anyway, I have to amend how this season could possibly conclude. Bridget does such a bang up job in fixing Siobhan's crappy life and is able to unify Hubby, Daughter, Best Friend that when push comes to shove, everyone around Bridget will rally around her in spite of knowing who she really is, but they won't care, because by then because they will have all fallen in love with her. And that's why they will all help her, by selling the lie that she really is "Siobhan". Of course there is the question of the real Siobhan coming back and blowing the secret wide open. There's your Season 2 plot.

Oh, and if I hadn't already clued you guys in, THIS episode was AWESOME!

The Poor Kids Do It Everyday



Man alive! This show is constantly pulling the rug out from under me. It's next to impossible to figure out what is gonna happen next. So, watching this one, I had Bridget pegged into trying to set up Henry as the fall guy by retriving the bloody rags and planting them in his home and then calling to cops with the tip. So I of course think, "Wow, Bridget is morphing into her evil sister Siobhan. But nooooooo. All she was doing was leaving a finger print on the evidence to giver herself an alibi of sorts.

And then the kicker is at the end when Siobhan herself gets a call saying the "Gemma problem has been taken care of". Ack!!! This is good stuff!!! I still don't think Gemma is really gone though. Because right when I accept that, BOOM, she will come back!!

Sheesh, talk about skating on thin ice. So many worlds about to collide. Some sooner than others. When Tyler sees Shiv/Cora/Bridget at the resturatnt and blurts out about their rendezvous earlier in Paris, I was expecting her to piece together that her sister was alive. And now Bridget/Shiv has Malcom Ward staying with her other "sponsor" who is working for her evil twin sister Shiv. You get all that? No? Sucks to be you then.

Juliet is gonna be baaaaaaad news for Mr. Carpenter (Jason Dohring), the teacher. Where's Veronica Mars to watch his back when he needs it?

Now that Bridget and Malcom know that John the "Sponsor" is not on the up and up and are actively digging into his past, this just raised the bar to a whole new level of intensity. The ending was just that. I was certain that Malcom was gonna....

That's What You Get For Trying To Kill Me



Sarah Michelle Gellar


Zoey Deutch


Billy Miller

Famous last words. Literally. I wasn't expecting them to kill off Gemma. I mean, hell, she got the upper hand on John/Charlie, utters those words and then just hangs around long enough for him to come back and..BLAM! I can't predict what's going on in this show at all. They are creating twist just for the sake of going against what is expected and I like it. You can't say that Ringer is predictable at all, that's for sure.

Not sure how the hell Siobhan can keep hopscotching from Paris to New York, back to Paris, back to New York without leaving a trail of evidence that she is alive and living abroad. The whole Juliet (Zoey Deutch) / Mr. Carpenter (Jason Dohring) angle took a very interesting turn and that fact that the supposed **** took place behind closed doors so we the viewer are kept in the dark adds to the whole "who is lying and who isn't". I'm not gonna even try to figure out where that one is going. But whatever happens, he better have Veronica Mars on his side to prove his innocence.

Now that I have had time to think about the whole **** story angle and the longevity of the show, I'm more inclined to think that Mr. C did in fact do it, because when the main story wraps up I was thinking of what could sustain the series. What else? Murder. So, I have Bridget killing Mr. C in protecting Juliet (Zoey Deutch) after the fact. Some how this incident will come off premeditated and Bridget will look guilty in the eyes of the law, forcing her to be on the run...again. But this time, her new "family" knows about who she really is and still protects and harbors her from the authorities.

Possible? I dunno. Just throwing it out there. My theories about this show are constantly changing as I adapt to all the twist and turns so far.

It Just Got Normal














I wouldn't say this was a bad episode, but there was a huge disconnect between me and what I was watching and I blame the CW for putting the show on a 2 month hiatus. That is way to long to shelve a series like Ringer that feeds off the momentum it generates each week. I came into this one cold and I just didn't feel that snap, pop and crackle that it usually has. They really dropped the ball on that one and it wouldn't surprise me one bit to hear that the ratings took a huge hit because of it.
