COntinued craziness. Loved the reverse scam on mom to get Andrew's money back. And didn't see her as the likely villain against Siohban, though that actually makes sense (insofar as this show makes sense :)

They really moved things along here in tonight's episode.

It's preposterous, campy but yet strangely entertaining. Zero chance it gets renewed and it seems like they knew that.

Season (and probably series) finale next week. Things are definitely coming to a head. I didn't expect the twist with Olivia tonight.

I certainly hope it doesn't come to an end with this season. Been loving all the twists & turns coming at us over the last few weeks. Would definitely hate to see it not get renewed, especially as it'll likely end with so much still up in the air.

Oh, Olivia! How she betrayed us!


Usually these ridiculous conspiracy plots spin out of control. Surpirsingly, Ringer makes more and more sense as it goes along!

I bet the last image next week will be Bridget and Siobhan face to face.

It came close and I wish we had seen that.

I thought it was a pretty good finale

Meh...I was looking at the clock through most of it.  I was going ballistic at the idea that Bridget decided to go up to the apartment knowing Bodaway was up there, but I suppose they justified it with the idea that she thought Juliet and/or Andrew were up there.  And it was pretty comical when Machado showed up so quickly, seemingly taking about the same amount of time as Bridget did to get there, despite having to get on an airplane.


Overall, I guess the show was mildly entertaining (I did make it this far without bailing afterall), but I think the writers went too far out of their way and cheated too much for the cheap thrill or plot twist.  Even if it did go another season, I'm not sure where they could take it.

I thought it was rather awesome. Everything out in the open, thank God. At the first station break, the CW referred to it as the finale--not the season finale. That's pretty apparent from the ratings, and at least I'm okay with where things ended up. It would have been nice to have seen a season without the shadow of Macawi hanging over everything, and I would have liked to have seen a happy ending for Andrew, Juliet and Bridg. But, I agree that I'm not sure what a second season would have looked like. I'd tune in if the impossible happened, though.

I wonder if there was anyone who did not expect to see Macawi confronting Siobahn. I'm glad we got that. I wish that Andrew had stuck around after punching Henry for Henry to attempt to spill some of what Siobahn's been up to over the past 7 months. One question - at the end of the first episode, Siobahn is on the phone talking to someone - does anyone remember who that was?

It might have been a call to the great Jonathan Banks. That was the call referenced last week, at least, where she was informed her hit man had failed and that another wouldn't be sent due to the loss of the phone. I have a very short memory for TV show specifics, however, so it could be something else.

Could it have been Charlie?

But it wasn't Siobahn's hit man - it was either Juliet's mother's or Olivia's. Of course it might have been an inconsistency.

Good episode. Fun show, tightening up at the end. Is this the end of the series?

Given the CW's anemic ratings across the board, you never know, but I think most of us are not counting on a renewal.

At least there should be some cost savings having one actor play two roles.  Or does SMG pull in two salaries? Posted Image

I was watching Fairly Legal last night and ... Spoiler for April 27 episode of Fairly Legal: [SPOILER=Warning: Spoiler!]The A-plot went in a direction very similar to what we saw on Ringer with Mr. Carpenter. When it went towards that direction, I just knew that had to be the case. [/SPOILER]
