In New York, Bridget is trying to get ahold of Gemma, but she’s not answering, and Henry is in the back of the car and asks Bridget if she knows why Gemma left (actually asking if she told Gemma about the affair) and she says no. Flashback to Gemma walking out, and doesn’t believe that Siobhan is actually Bridget but just lying as an excuse for having slept with Henry.
Bridget and Andrew return home, and “Whore” is written on the picture of Siobhan in the entry way.
Music is playing loud, and Andrew goes in the other room to see who is there. A blonde haired woman is sitting on the couch and runs out, and Juliette is laying passed out on the other couch. He asks why she isn’t at her mother’s, but she asks why Bridget isn’t throwing her opinion in. Juliet says she will never apologize to Siobhan for what she’s done, and Andrew says they all need to go back to therapy and Juliet walks out.
Bridget tries Gemma again.
Gemma is sitting at home watching a video taken on New Year’s Eve and freezes it when Henry and Shibahn are sharing a glance. Henry gets home and ask her what’s going on. She freezes the video again, and notices a mark on Siobhan’s arm, and then Henry tries asking her again, but she walks out. He opens an evelope with his transcript and a note that says calls me.
Andrew is trying to clean up, and tells Bridget Juliet will come back eventually. Andrew says he say them together the night Julette came home sick, and was touched when he saw them together. Bridget says she thinks she knows what the problem is, and begins searching Juliet’s room for drugs. She tells him he has to be the adult and not expect her to be. He tells her he’ll handle it.
Gemma finds Bridget and asks to see her arm, and see’s that Bridget doesn’t have a scar (Siobhan got it from a burn at a cooking class) and realizes she’s tell the truth about being Bridget, and they go to talk.
Malcolm has been drugged for days, but still not talking to Malcowi.
Julieit goes to her room and can tell it has been gone through. She knows it was Briget because Andrew would never go through her stuff. She goes into Siobhan’s room and starts ruining her stuff. She finds Bridget’s subway ticket…
Bridget tells Gemma Siobhan killed herself, and Gemma says she didn’t realize she was in pain. She asks how long Bridget has been pretending, and she says 2 weeks. Bridgette tells her she was desperate because Malcowi wants her dead. Gemma tells her she doesn’t have to do anything Bridgette asks, because she doesn’t even know her.

Bridget, Andrew and Juliette are eating dinner, and Andrew forces Juliet to apologize. Juliet asks her why she saw her at Union Station…and she knows what her secret is and tells Andrew that she was at narcotics anonymous and is not going into rehab and walks out. Bridget tells Andrew she was just doing research on addiction and he tells her again to just let him handle it. Gemma walks in, and tells Andrew she needs to talk to him. But then says she’s going ot speak with both of them, and says she can’t work on the loft anymore. Andrew steps out and she tells Bridget she has a favor to ask.
She tells her it’s been awful trying to act like everything is normal with Andrew. She tells Bridget she wants to divorce Henry, and they have an infidelity clause, and she needs irrefutable evidence that he was cheating…she tells Bridget she needs to sleep with Henry, or she will tell everyone who she really is.
Bridget gets ready for her night and smears whore on the picture, and then pulls out some pills. She tries calling Malcolm, and tells him she needs his help. She says “what am i donning” and dumps the pills down the drain.
She meets up with Charlie and tells him she almost took some pills, and she also tells him either she does something awful to save her family or she looses it all if she doesn’t. He tells her to take the road that will save her dignity. He offers to be her sponsor, but she tells him she already has one, and he asks where he was when she needed him.
Henry is on the phone, and Gemma walks in. He says things keep seeming to fall through, and if he looses this book, he looses who he is. Gemma gets mad at him for defining himself from his books, not as a husband or father and tells him she’s going to the loft to pack up.
Bridget arrives at the loft, and tells Gemma she’s not going to sleep with Henry. She tells Bridget she did research and knows her past as a drug addict/stripper/whore. She tells her if Bridget doesn’t sleep with Henry, she’ll call Machado and tell him about her and if she doesn’t do it by midnight she’ll tell Andrew everything.
Juliet is at Andrews office, and he tells sher he’s going to public school starting the next day. He tells her it’s a fresh start, not a punishment, to get her away from kids who are a bad influence on her. She tells him it’s not about drugs it’s about Siobhan, and the real reason she hates Siobhan is because “she’s a cheating bitch who sleeps with married men.”
Bridget meets Henry at a bar. He goes in to kiss her, and she tells him Gemma knows, and tells him Gemma’s plan, and to go home and make things right by trying to love Gemma again for his kids, but he says he can’t live the lie anymore and he’s done. She walks out.
Bridget arrives at Andrews office, and he tells her Juliet is mad because he cheated on Juliet’s mother with Siobhan, and now he doesn’t know where she is. Bridget pulls out the match book she found in Juliet’s room and tells him to try there before calling the police.

It’s midnight, so Gemma shows up to tell Andrew, and Bridget tells her he’s not there, and if the truth gets out it will destroy Juliet. She tells Gemma she called off the affair and has no interest in Henry, and to give her a chance to be the friend that Siobhan wasn’t. Gemma says she doesn’t even know who she is anymore.

Bridget arrives at the club Juliet is at because Andrew said to meet him there. They find Juliet. Andrew says what happened is in the past, and she has to look at the reason her parents aren’t together everyday. Bridget says she’s right that they never should have been together when they were still married, and to hate her as much as she wants, but not her father or herself. Bridget then apologizes, and says it’s not Juliet turn to apologize and she wants to make up for her mistakes. Juliet says she wants to go home. Andrew says he’ll stop at a drug store to get something for her head, and Juliet says it’s okay for Bridget to take her home.
Gemma calls Andrew and says it’s an emergency and she needs him to stop at her place.
Bridget washes whore off the picture of Siobhan, and Juliet comes in to help her.
Andrew arrives at Gema’s and Hnery opens the door. Henry says he doesn’t know why she called him, but he won’t let Andrew in, and Henry says he hasn’t seen her all night. Henry closes the door and wipes seat off his forehead. There is blood on the walls and the place is a mess…he heads upstairs…
Another awesome episode! It’s great to see Ringer moving forward. I think it’s easy to catch onto the fact that most of the characters don’t mean what the audience is led to believe they mean, and things don’t always to appear to be what they seem. I don’t think Henry killed Gemma (and the preview I saw for next week on Conan the other night when SMG was on, seems to prove that). I don’t think Gemma is actually dead, but she was desperate enough that I think she faked her own death. When she called Andrew there didn’t seem to be anyone after her, and I didn’t hear any kind of chaos going on in the background.
It’ll also be interesting to see how everyone else is going to react once they find out about Bridget. I thought it was interesting the way that Gemma tried to take advantage of her, and I wonder if anyone else will try to do the same.
