Anyone hoping to see Gemma again should have had that firmly dashed last night.

I guess what I'm most interested in knowing is what turned the "good" twin into such an evil witch.

Bridgett has her drug addiction and falling in with the wrong crowd to somewhat "defend" her shady past... but Siobhan has done more in just the recent past than Bridgett ever would have dreamed of doing even when stoned out of her gourd... and it sure looks like Siobhan is doing all her nastiness sober.

Yeah baby!  It's Halloween!

Ya, that is my guess as well. But, it has been long enough that she should have been missing her periods. We'll know next Tuesday.

I love that Bridget's new NA sponsor is working for Siobhan. What does he get out of all of this; or is he just working for money? And I wonder if he's just pretending to be a cop, or if he actually is a cop. I still don't know what Siobhan's end game in all of this is.

That revelation caught me by surprise. Cop. not cop? I was wondering the same thing. Still waiting for some clues as to what Siobhan is up to.

In keeping with the soap opera feel to the show, I'd like to see Gemma turn up alive a couple of episodes from now. But she'll have... wait for it... amnesia!

100% agree... Gemma is literally dead & (probably) buried.

And yet... this is a show about a girl who has an evil twin that was a secret...

So... who is to say that maybe Gemma couldn't have an unknown twin somewhere too

Yeah baby!  It's Halloween!

To heck with her sister, whats Bridget up to? She seems to be purposely framing herself for the murder. Does she believe Sioban will be mistaken for her and be the one caught? of course once they take her fingerprints they will know its not Bridget. This show is unbelievable-and I mean that in a good way

Well, I guessed wong about Gemma. We have yet to see what Bridget's plan is, especially deliberately her planting her own fingerprint on the vase fragment. She took a big risk in them not fingerprinting HER for some reason.

The revelation about the NA sponsor was unexpected too.

For Sioban to have her best friend killed makes her genuinely evil.

As far as Bridget knows, her sister is dead.

She is framing herself, because she knows Bridget can't be found as long as everyone thinks she is Siobhan... and they have no reason as yet to suspect the switch...

Unfortunately, she tried to point the police to Europe... where Siobhan actually is alive and well... so IF the police bite at that and look for "Bridget" they might find Siobhan.

If you thought that you were fast forwarding through a lot of commercials and network promos, or worse yet, watching all of the clutter in real time, you were right.

The CW is the worst OTA network when it comes to commercial clutter.

The 11/07/11 episode was only 39:25 in length and that includes the closing credits. That is the shortest program yet on the CW. Back in February, it was 39:55 (90210).

This crap has to stop.

She still doesn't... since that guy didn't go far enough to say "I just slept with you in Paris"... Bridget probably just assumes "oh no, my sister the slut had an affair with someone else"...

I have to say, though, I was amazed they went as far as they did... Most shows, especially soap-opera types will drag plots like this out... but WHAM, he gets to see her right at the end of the episode for shock value.

I can see where this show might not be some people's cup of tea... but you have to like the pacing of how each episode is moving the story forward and actually crashing various people together to almost let the cat out of the bag.

Yeah baby!  It's Halloween!

True, but he did mention that coming to see her husband was the reason for not going with him to Italy. That makes it a recent thing. Her coming late to the dinner made it seem like she just got in from a flight.

Your other points are right on. each week a new shocker.

And then there is the daughter. Me, I think she is lying, saying that to the person she knows will talk. She just wants to get back at him for his telling her that nothing will ever happen between them.

Come January, the plot thickens.

What I hate is that the episodes are too damn short. The show is on the worst network when it comes to program length. The CW is terrible, where episodes (no matter the scripted program), hover around 40 minutes in length and have gone under 40 minutes.

Agreed on the daughter... Except the way this show twists... She might even be telling the truth and have no one believe her.

Agreed, and man, you're good, btw.That whole arc is yet another sign we are in bizarro soap opera land:

So "Logan" knows she's coming on to him and his reaction is to send away the only witness so they are alone? And then he closes the door! Either he's the dumbest adult in the history of teaching, or what happened is what she says did.


Ringer is one cliche after another, turned upside down and inside out. And amazingly they play it straight, although their tongue is firmly in cheek. Its joining Wonerfalls and Profit as shows that make me wonder "how the heck did that ever get on tv?"

It really is a guilty pleasure. You have to like soaps, but this is like a bigger budget slick soap... And I like that they keep twisting things and moving plot at a fast pace.

The only secret they keep on the back burner is that the real Siobhan did not die... But everything else they reveal in a couple of episodes without dragging it out.

If you miss an episode, you are lost in a hurry.

Yeah baby!  It's Halloween!

I was surprised by how happy I was to have this show finally back. Had a huge smile on my face the whole time I was watching...

So what does everyone think about the daughter? Was she really raped? Does it matter? And how does the stolen ring figure in to further complicate Bridgett's life? Poor Harry, the guy is going to get a terminal case of confusion dealing with both sisters. Speaking of which, isn't SMG amazing? A very clever performance in a very clever show...half expect her to give a sly wink at the audience any time now...
