My Review of Ringer 1.06- Poor Kids Do it Every Day


And tonight we deal with the effects of Gemma's disappearance which brings some definite tension between Henry and Bridget....

I find the way that Bridget dealt with Gemma's disappearance very interesting.  Once she finds out about the rags and vase, she finds them and then proceeds to frame....herself.  I suspect that she is trying to stop Agent Machado from looking for her by making it look like she had something to do with Gemma's disappearance and then fled.  Unique method, I must admit.  I am also very proud of the fact that she took Juliet's drugs and gave them to Charlie to get rid of.  Good girl, you get a cookie.  Now all she has to worry about is convincing Machado about what happened, which ought to be a challenging exercise.

Could Henry make himself look any guiltier?  He cleans the crime scene really well, makes it look like Gemma fled, and then flips out at Bridget about it.  And any bets on how long it is going to take him to figure out that "Siobhan" called the cops?  I want to witness that little confrontation.

So Siobhan did have something to do with the disappearance after all.  Not entirely convinced Gemma is dead, but given that little conversation between Siobhan and her associate, I am willing to bet good money that she is.  Then there is also the little conversation she had with Henry.  Andrew had better watch his back because Siobhan has a long reach.

Juliet, sweetie, just a little idea.  Mouthing off during your first day of school at a girl who looks like a punk?  Not a good idea.  At least she had a teacher who was ready to defend her and spoke the truth, even if he didn't know it for sure.  Now just learn to control that little mouth of yours, ok?

Malcolm, Malcolm, where oh where art thou Malcolm?  Machado was so close to you, but then you got moved.  And I so hope you didn't tell the gangsters where Bridget is.

Andrew didn't do much other than react to things.  Not the best reactions either.  Take some time to reassure your daughter that you believe her first before you send her out.  Sigh....

Question of the night: Is Gemma dead?

Next episode in two weeks.  Until then!
