My Review of Ringer 1.08- Maybe We Can Get a Dog Instead?

Andrew finds out that "Siobhan" is not pregnant, Juliet gets a nasty surprise from her teacher, Malcolm shows up in New York, and Tyler (aka Siobhan's boytoy) gets a serious shock when he is recalled to New York by Andrew....

Well, Bridget certainly had an interesting week, although the most interesting parts she doesn't know about yet.  Despite the fact that Tyler said that he slept with her, she didn't put two and two together and figure out that Siobhan is in fact still alive.  Am surprised about that to be honest.  I mean, if I had a twin who I thought was dead and then someone came up to me and said that he had been sleeping with me, putting 2 and 2 together would not have been hard.  Weird, granted, but not hard.  Although, in her defense, she had a busy week.  Between "losing" the baby, Malcolm showing up, and trying to salvage the marriage with Henry, Bridget is a busy little beaver.

And Siobhan got a rude kick to the head courtesy of Andrew, Tyler, and Bridget.  Boy, is she going to be pissed!  She loses her wonderful hotel room because Tyler got called back to the US (thanks to her!) and meets "Siobhan".  Ow.  Refuse to feel sorry for her though, at this point she has racked up *SO* much bad karma that she deserves this kick in the ass and oh so much more!

So Juliet has a crush on her teacher.  He's cute, sweet, helpful, and defended her to her dad and the principal.  I get it.  Unfortunately, by getting her out of his class, he guaranteed that she'll get worse.  That was so not the way to deal with the situation.  Honestly, I don't know what he should have done, but by getting her out of his class, he just made her that much more determined.  Bad, bad, bad, bad, bad....

Well, Malcolm is now trying to get clean, which is a good thing.  And he is with Bridget's new sponsor which is both good and bad.  Good because Bridget can keep an eye on him easier.  Bad, because the sponsor is Siobhan's plant.  And given the previews for next week, Malcolm gets suspicious of the new sponsor.
