Ringer, if there is one thing I can count on this show for it is the wacky. When the Tarot card fell out of the shooters back pocket I laughed out loud. I guess it could have been a matchbook, but a Tarot card is so much more mysterious? And kind of Buffyish.
The episode picks up exactly where last week’s ended Agent Guyliner (Machado) is chasing the shooter down the alley, he doesn’t catch him, but is able to rip is back pocket before he gets away. The Tarot card falls out of the ripped pocket, the symbol on the card is The Tower. Our trusty FBI agent informs us it represents one of two things, ruin/failure as in the Tower of Babel, or dualism ( like twins), opposing forces clashing into each other. He tracks the card to a dry cleaner that was giving them away.
Andrew is alive and in surgery, Juliet calls Henry he comes to the hospital, Bridget tells him Andrew saved her life. This gives Henry pause, perhaps Shiv has been full of it the whole time. Henry confronts Shiv, he calls her a liar and a sociopath, he kicks her to the curb. Whoo-Who he grows a pair. That lasts about a day, he takes her back and tells her he killed Tyler, but it was an accident, they were fighting and Tyler hit his head. He switches Tyler’s flash drive with a fake and takes off, that means Olivia has the fake.
Henry goes one better, he gave the drive to his father in law, to convince him to pull his investments from Martin Charles. Good Henry.
Andrew wakes up and he and Bridget make up and are all lovey dovey. Best line of the night, when Andrew woke up, Bridget says “hey Superman”, no he’s Mr Fantastic, get your superheros straight. Bridget asks Andrew why he went to Malcolm’s room, he said Olivia suggested a bribe to get rid of him, he took the money and hit the road. He’ll be back. Bridget tells Andrew about the guy she killed. She explains to him that she didn’t tell him at first because she wasn’t sure he wasn’t involved. BTW Olivia is in the wind.
What if Andrew is also twins? That would explain how he goes from nice to evil. I wouldn’t put it past this show to pull something like that, they are that crazy.
Catherine, Andrew and Bridget decide New York isn’t a safe place for Juliet and she has to return to Florida with her mom. She doesn’t want to go, she runs away to the beach house. Bridget tracks her down, Juliet confesses the plot she and he mom hatched to Bridget. Bridget heads back to Park Ave to tell Andrew, Machado is there he informs them that one of Macawi’s henchmen has been found dead, with Malcolm’s id. My guess, Malcolm killed the guy. Agent Machado informs Bridget and Andrew that he thinks Macawi’s men are here to kill Shiv because they think she is really Bridget. (good guess)
I think it would be a good twist if Macawi and Shiv were in on the whole thing from the beginning.
Shiv heads off to the hospital to confess all to Andrew, she calls Henry to let him know he arrives just in time to stop her. They are in the hall talking just as Bridget shows up. Lucky for Bridget and Shiv they are both wearing the same coat or Andrew might had figured it out. I guess the baby bump wasn’t that noticeable, no coat can hide that. Ok he just got shot maybe I should give him a pass.
Just to recap, Andrew is ok, Olivia is missing, Flash drive on the lose, Juliet confesses, Henry sort of got his balls back, Shiv’s control is slipping and Malcolm lives to see another day.
God I hope this show gets renewed it is just good old fashioned fun.
The preview for next week made my head hurt, we see a dead body, maybe Olivia, maybe Catherine, Henry being questioned by the police. what the hell is my Andrew doing kissing Catherine!!! Shiv shooting someone, we are led to believe it’s Bridget. But you know how the promo monkey’s edit stuff. I think she is shooting Olivia or maybe Catherine. Maybe Shiv has been working with Catherine to destroy Andrew.
