My Review of Ringer 1.02- She's Ruining Everything

Bridget covers up the events of last week and prepares to run ruining Siobhan's plans in the process, Gemma has a confrontation in a very public location, and Agent Machado continues to circle....

Bridget had an interesting week.  First, Gemma comes along after the shooting while Bridget is hiding the body.  Then, after Bridget decides to run, she just keeps getting roped into staying.  Between Juliet and Andrew, she just can't get away.  I actually think this is a good thing.  As made plentifully; and painfully; clear by the flashbacks, Bridget has never been in a position to help anyone.  Now, she can use her past to help Juliet out.  This could be interesting.  Juliet seems to be; ok is; spiraling out of control and while I don't think one good night is going to solve anything, it is a good start.  When Bridget was comforting her in the end, you could see the decision to stay; at least for now; being made.  After being abandoned by Siobhan; probably for valid reasons; Bridget is determined not to make the same decision with regards to Juliet.

I am also impressed with how she handled Machado.  Although obviously flustered during the first meeting, when he came to the party she handled him with grace and aplomb.  That was impressive.  And I don't know how involved she was in the party planning, but it came together incredibly well.  With only two minor problems, the phone and Gemma's confrontation, it came off rather nicely too.

Poor Gemma.  She knows that her husband is cheating on her, but she just can't figure out with who.  I shudder to think what will happen to Bridget when Gemma figures out that Siobhan was sleeping with him.  But, for now, she is relying on Bridget for support.  Yet another person that Bridget can help.

I was highly amused when it was revealed that Bridget had unknowingly spiked Siobhan's plan.  I do wonder what Siobhan is planning.  That is one of several questions raised this week that need to be answered.

Andrew was so happy to have the old Siobhan back.  If only he knew.  Well, at least he has a "wife" who is trying to be helpful, both to him and his daughter.

Until next week!
