Ringer (Tuesday at 9pm on the CW) definitely upped the ante last night. FBI agent Machado,(Nestor Carbonell), told Gemma, (Tara Summers) about Bridget (Sarah Michelle Gellar), putting fauxShiv in an awkward position. This move set the stage for later when fauxShiv needed a get out of jail free card, her confession diffused Gemma’s anger. Side note, the actress who plays Gemma was on season 3 for Damages she played Alex Benjamin. I love IMDB, don’t you.
Bridget telling Gemma she is not Shiv but really Bridget, will prevent Gemma from telling Andrew (Ioan Gruffudd) about the affair and confronting Henry (Kristoffer Polaha). How she will convince Gemma she is Bridget, since she just burned her id, she has quite a challenge on her hands. Only next week will tell, the previews make it look like it isn’t going to go so well. Any savvy TV watcher will tell you the previews are edited to mislead the viewer, dubbing in dialogue for a completely different scene into the action from another.
We all knew Bridget was going to need a confidant, Andrew was my first thought, but Gemma makes more sense. This developement also makes Gemma more interesting and will give the actress more to do, besides whine about Henry.
I like the concept of the real Shiv being alive, I wonder who her partner is, who is on the other end of the phone. I wonder if the show will hold back that piece and decide later based on how the action develops or if they have it planned out.
When does Bridge find out Shiv is still alive, until last night I was betting on a season one cliffhanger. But since the show exposed two big secrets in the fourth episode, it seems like they have fast tracked the action.
As to when Andrew finds out, I think when Bridget finally tells him, he is going to tell her he already knew, somehow he knew about the twin, plus all the differences in her personality and behavior, no surprise he put two and two together. He has been so happy with her and has fallen in love with her so he just let it go. By that time, and the time Shiv shows back up Bridget will be pregnant with Andrew’s baby, yeah!
I am on team AnBridge.
Somebody has to die for sweeps, will it be November or February and will it be Gemma, Henry or Andrew’s Partner?
Shiv’s next move, frame Bridge for murder, it brings the FBI agent into the picture and nothing says drama like a murder trial, false accusations and a pregnant defendant.
I am begging you to watch this show, and tell your friends to watch. If you need to catch up on episodes they are available at the http://www.cwtv.com/.
