Ringer: Shut Up and Eat Your Bologna

Updated on April 21, 2013

Ringer: Shut Up and Eat Your Bologna

The new hit show on CW starring Sarah Michele Gellar is the most fascinating of the Fall Season. To review the plot Bridget and Siobhan are identical twin sisters who are very different.

Bridget is a former prostitute and recovering drug addict who witnessed a mob murder and is now being forced to testify against a mob boss. Bridget is sober thanks to the help of her sponsor/slash former lover Malcolm. She goes to visit her sister before she is set to testify against the Mob boos for one last visit before entering the witness protection program.

Siobhan is a New York socialite who lives with her husband Andrew and his daughter Juliette who also has substance abuse issues. Siobhan has had an affair with her best friend Gemma’s husband, Henry, and is currently carrying his baby. She has faked her own death and is now setting her sister up as herself to die so she can abscond with her husband Andrew’s fortune. She is managing all of this from Paris and having an affair with one of her husband’s European employees. But he finds out and dumps her so she is back to square one. She has however creatively managed to get a man to pretend to be an addict and sponsor Bridget while pretending to be Siobhan. And this man has murdered Gemma and implicated Siobhan.

Andrew is a rather clueless husband. He doesn’t realize his wife isn’t his wife and he seems oblivious to the fact Bridget a former prostitute will not even have sex with him.

Malcolm has really gotten he short end of the stick in this entire series. When Bridget took off the mob went after him and injected him with heroine sending him out of recovery and he is an active user. They also beat him half to death but he wouldn’t tell them where Bridget was located. And the FBI is also after Malcolm hoping he will lead them t Bridget but instead he keeps seeing Siobhan who is really Bridget. But Malcolm begins to suspect Bridget’s new sponsor in NA and starts investigating him.

And that has only been the first five shows. The basic plot line is identical twin sisters in every way imaginable trying to succeed with the one good fate that is between them.

Ringer: SHutu Up and Eat Your Bologna Promo


We find out that Bridget was tipped off to run as she was not protected in witness protection and given gun. And that gun is going to be a problem for Bridget. We also find out Gemma is still alive in this episode. Bridget's NA sponsor, Charlie, is holding her captive.

Malcolm has been clean for six days. Given Chariie's try agenda he would have been better off letting Malcolm stay addicted. Henry is very occupied caring full time for his twin.

Bridget goes to her sister's therapist as her sister to try and glean information. And she recognizes she is falling in love with Andrew. Bridget discovers Siobhan was prescribed anti-depresants for paranoia.

Bridget goes to a church that she thinks Siobhan attended only to find out it is a bar. She finds her NA sponsor, Charlie, in it drinking.

This is a very clever show that has ben nominated for a Peole's Choice award.

      This sounds like something I would need to start from scratch with and catch up on the episodes! At this point I am confused but would then be enlightened. It sounds interesting. What channel is CW? I am not familiar with it. Thanks for sharing this. I am intrigued.
