Ringer: “If You Ever Want A French Lesson…” Episode 3 Review

9 Oct


Things aren’t going so well for anyone in this episode.  Bridget (Sarah Michelle Gellar) tries to discover who hired Siobhan’s killer through any clue she can find in the killer’s phone but that’s proving to be a bit of a problem.  First, the second hit man demands the phone back more than once through the episode and she discovers that unless she’s a drug dealer with surveillance equipment or an FBI agent, she probably can’t discover any sort of call history on the disposable phone. Bridget tries to get help from her NA sponsor Malcolm (Mike Colter) but he gets kidnapped by the bad guy gunning for her and beaten.  By the end of the episode he’ll be shot up with heroin (I’m guessing) so Malcolm might be accidentally giving Bridget up sooner than anticipated.  And just to make Bridget a bit more paranoid, she discovers a copy of the photo the hit man had.  First, she is positive that Andrew gave it to him because the photo is in a cabinet.  Later, Bridget discovers Gemma  (Tara Summers) has the same photo.  She questions her and Gemma reminds her most of the New York power players have that photo since it was the one Siobhan and Andrew (Ioan Gruffudd) sent out as a Christmas card.  Oh well, my money is still on Gemma or Andrew, or Andrew’s business partner, Olivia (Jaime Murray).

In the meantime, Gemma and Henry (Kristoffer Polaha) fight about money.  Henry decides to withdraw funds from their joint hedge fund account brokered by Andrew without telling Gemma.  In Paris, Siobhan meets a banker who she flirts with (he’s working for one of her husband’s branches) then later attempts to seduce.  She has to abort the seduction as she is so nauseated she kicks him out of her room and takes a pregnancy test.  It’s confirmed, she’s knocked up with Henry’s child.  If we weren’t sure, she calls him to listen to his voice as she looks at the positive pregnancy test in her hand.

Bridget has her own troubles.  Hit Man #2 is angry.  She refuses to give up the phone.  Bridget calls FBI Agent Machado (Nestor Carbonell) so the hit man will see her talking to him.  She then tells Hit Man #2 (on a phone call) that if he tries to kill her, etc. that Agent Machado will get the phone in question.   Andrew tries thank Bridget for her party the previous week but she doesn’t trust him, probably for good reason, although I’m not entirely sure how untrustworthy he is.  It looks like something juicy will be revealed next episode.  I’m looking forward to seeing what that might be…
