Episode Ten of RINGER had two really good moments. One was Siobhan’s self-inflicted black eye (from a medicine cabinet door that opened from the right making one wonder why the right eye wasn’t blackened instead) , and the other was Amber Benson’s fleeting appearance as a Wyoming stripper (whose body showed no apparent wounds that might have caused her death. Perhaps she was poisoned, but then why was she face down on the floor?) Emily Swallow’s return as Detective Elizabeth Saldana was also noteworthy. Swallow is primarily a stage actor, and she has the most expressive face of anyone on RINGER.
Lots happened in this episode. Siobhan returned to New York to stop Gemma (Tara Summers) from being killed, failed, and ended up killing her killer (Charlie). In an attempt to get back in the good graces of Tyler Barrett (Justin Bruening), Siobhan told him that the baby she is carrying is his. (This is not true, of course. The father is Henry Butler.)
Bridget (pretending to be her sister) had sex with Andrew. Juliet (Zoey Deutch) began spreading a rumour that Mr. Carpenter (Jason Dohring) raped her. This may or may not be true. With all the other stuff happening, Juliet’s travails were relegated to the back burner, but in the next few episodes, I suspect the show will focus on her character quite a bit.
We won’t find out for sure until 10 January.
