S1E7: After giving fans a week off from all the exciting plot twists, Ringer made sure to return bigger and better than ever. Tonight's episode of was all about telling the truth -- well sort of. We found out that Bridget, who's still impersonating Siobhan, came clean with Andrew and Henry about having a twin sister shortly after Gemma's disappearance. Of course, she neglected to mention the fact that she's the imposter twin who has taken over her sister's life to escape getting killed. But those are just unimportant details, right? Her little love triangle is complicated enough, although it's quickly becoming more like a rhombus now that Malcolm is back in the picture, although he doesn't exactly appear to be in a stable frame of mind. Last we knew, he was about to give away Bridget's whereabouts to Macawi, but we never actually saw him do it, but just because we didn't witness it, doesn't mean it didn't happen, which makes you wonder just whose side he's actually on now. On a show based entirely upon secrets and lies, I'd say that another doublecross is entirely possible. We may have to add him to the list of people Bridget cannot trust. Speaking of trust, Bridget's new sponsor, Charlie, revealed his true colors tonight in a surprise twist, so the list just keeps on growing.
But her other men have their own separate problems to deal with. Even though the police found Bridget's fingerprints on evidence related to Gemma's disappearance, Henry is still being considered a potential suspect and is being hounded by the police and press. Andrew is also dealing with his own form of stress regarding Juliet, who seems to be quite the magnet for trouble. It looks like her latest little escapade is going to cost her a fortune literally.
"Oh God, there's two of them?" - Juliet
Since Bridget knows the police will be bringing everyone in for questioning after Gemma's mysterious disappearance, she decides to come clean to both Andrew and Henry about having a twin sister. Naturally, they're both very upset that she wasn't completely honest with them from the very beginning, but they're fine once the initial shock value wears off. And sure enough, Bridget is right and all three of them are hauled down to the station for questioning, but not before she uses her old phone to call Siobhan's phone and leave a message as Bridget. That way when Agent Machado starts questioning her, she's able to pull up the voicemail, making it sound like Bridget is responsible for Gemma's disappearance and announcing her plans to leave the country. Despite the evidence, Agent Machado still seems a bit skeptical of the evidence, but he goes along with it for the time being.
"Whoever did this, I want my wife back." - Henry
Up to this point, Bridget's covered her tracks pretty well, but what she didn't plan on was coming face to face with Malcolm. Remember poor Malcolm, who's been drugged, beaten, and held hostage by Macawi's men? Well he escapes from two of Macawi's guys who are taking him to an unknown destination in a shady van. And in what seems like no time at all, he magically appears in New York City to find Bridget (someone give me the name of his travel agent). But the Bridget-Malcolm reunion isn't exactly a sentimental one since Bridget passes out at the mere sight of him, perhaps overcome with relief that he isn't dead. I'm still going back and forth about whether to trust him or not. This show is giving me some serious trust issues because everyone seems to be lying or double-crossing, so I'm not convinced Malcolm's intentions are entirely pure. Let's keep in mind that he's now back on the drugs and users will pretty much do anything to get another fix. I really hope I'm wrong though.
But because she fainted, Bridget is immediately taken to the hospital so the doctors can check on her and the baby. The only problem is, the real Siobhan is the one that's pregnant, not Bridget, so she tries to stop the exam from happening, but Andrew is adamant about making sure the baby is okay. I'm having a hard time seeing how Bridget's going to lie her way out of this one.
"Call me with the next move." - Charlie
Since she knows the police are nowhere close to finding out who's really responsible for Gemma's disappearance, Bridget decides to turn to her new NA sponsor, Charlie, for help. Initially I didn't really think much of this guy, but I immediately became suspicious of him in this episode. Bridget starts confiding in him and he seems a little too calm and willing to help (sort of like this was his plan all along). She asks him to go down to the precinct and see if he could find anything out about the investigation and he agrees, which is really suspicious since he barely knows her. But when he comes up empty on any answers, she makes the mistake in telling him exactly where Henry hid Gemma's car. So he goes to inspect it and finds blood in the backseat and .cleans it up! Yup, it was his blood. This guy is yet another person who's guilty of the double-cross (that seems to be the main theme of this show). A flashback reveals that Charlie is the bad guy who attacked Gemma on the real Siobhan's orders. After cleaning up the only evidence that could've linked him to the crime, he calls the real Siobhan and informs her that everything is being taken care of and he awaits her further instructions. Best twist yet on the show!
