Not long after last week’s Ringer post, in which we speculated that SMG’s clothes were kind of heinous and big because they were full of fetal secrets, we got a truly lovely e-mail from the lady herself in which she a) was totally classy and awesome; b) said we are NOT, in fact, headed for some episodes of the show where both her characters do nothing but sit behind desks and carry potted plants (as in, not prego); c) reassured us that brighter wardrobe days are ahead; and d) told us not to pull our punches, regardless. And when Kendall Hart 1.0 essentially asks us to keep being Rich Twin/Poor Twin’s Get-A-Grip friend, we feel compelled to oblige, even — nay, especially — if it means being brutally honest about what dumpy hellfire Rich Twin is wearing in the last shot of the episode.
Ergo, come with me as I take a few swings at this week’s Ringer, which ponied up ANOTHER good ending, and continued the plot hot streak that started with last week’s surprise blood stain (and BFF’s sad-sack husband/Rich Twin’s secret lover and baby-daddy staggering around his house like he was drunk on muuuuurder). It also kept up the streak of putting SMG in the same outfit for 90 percent of the hour. I wonder if she gets as bored as the Lost cast. Poor old FBI Agent Richard Alpert must be like, “Really? THIS OUTFIT AGAIN? Can’t we do an episode where I go to Bermuda for a week and wear a bunch of different exciting shorts?”
