Ringer: “It’s Gonna Kill Me, But I’ll Do It” Episode 4 Review

10 Oct

SPOILER ALERT:
This particular Ringer episode focuses on Brigdet’s/Siobhan’s (Sarah Michelle Gellar) birthday.  They reflect on their past celebrations when money was tight and they were children.  This year, Bridget gets to celebrate her birthday in the Hamptons with Gemma (Tara Summers), Henry (Kristoffer Polaha), and Andrew (Ioan Gruffudd).  While Andrew tries to get closer to his wife, Henry also takes his shot, reminding Bridget of their romantic tryst at the Hamptons house for her last birthday.  Bridget tells Henry the affair has to end and Gemma overhears.

Meanwhile  in Paris, Siobhan repairs her relationship with Tyler (Justin Bruening), the banker from her husband’s company.  She confesses it’s her birthday and she has no money (Bridget made that large withdrawal as Siobhan a couple of weeks ago), so Tyler comes to her rescue and puts her hotel bill on Andrew’s company’s bill.  Problem solved.  It appears that Bridget, as a drug addict and alcoholic, has far more integrity than Siobhan.  So far.  Siobhan manages to steal some paperwork from Tyler’s briefcase and make a call to her anonymous partner that their plans are still moving forward.

Agent Machado (Nestor Carbonell), not one to miss a party, shows up at the Hamptons after the FBI discovers two things:  Bridget/Siobhan made a distress call from Siobhan’s boat in the Hamptons back in September when Bridget first arrived in town, and, Bridget/Siobhan, accessed the locker where Bridget’s belongings were stored and took her bag.  He confronts Bridget (as Siobhan) and tells her that he knows all of Siobhan’s secrets and he will find Bridget.  He also informs Gemma that Siobhan has a twin sister (before any of the revelations of the affair has taken place) so Gemma confronts Bridget/Siobhan who admits to having a twin who she is no longer close to.  Finally, Agent Machado quickly searches Bridget’s phone and sees through the call history that she has placed calls to Malcolm (Mike Colter).  Things aren’t looking good for Bridget.

In the Hamptons, things go from bad to worse for Bridget.  She discovers Gemma overhead the conversation wtih Henry and gets decked in the face.  Then, in a desperation move, she admits to Gemma that she’s not Siobhan, she’s Bridget.  Next week’s previews look like Gemma tells Andrew that Siobhan is really Bridget.  Things will now hopefully pick up.
