She called Siobhan and told her to meet her there because she thought she figured out who Henry was having an affair with.
So why did Gemma call Siobhan and tell her to go there at the end?? Did they kidnap her and force her to lure Siobahn there, or what? I was confused.
We never saw her though, so I am not sure if she was luring her there.

I hope the ratings pick up and that it can stick around for a long, long time!

Anyway, I finally watched it and I liked it much more than I expected. So much cliched dialogue and actions (ie answering the phone, listening to what they say and then hanging up before replying, and why didn't she burn the letter they found in the locker?) but I didn't mind that as the whole thing ffeels like a modern hommage to those great old Noir films centered around a woman and questions of identity like Laura. Similarly some of the visuals (ie the Indian heads on her building mirroring the face of the killer she witnessed, and all the mirrors) are heavy handled symbol wise, but work.
Like I said, I can see some finding it too self serious, but that's part of the genre as I see it--so yeah I liked it quite a bit. My main fear with any show like this is how they can keep it interesting over several seasons--or even one season. It has a great setup for a pilot, and then who knows...

Vampire Diaries has it too...
Wasn't sure at first I was going to like it, but half-way through I was hooked! Very nice! Can't wait to see the next episode. I hope it's not a typical schizophrenic CW show, like 90210. And speaking of, Ringer seems to have that same loud ambient background audio that 90210/Gossip Girl suffers from. Must be a CW thing.
Drugs of some kind, whether it was cocaine, ketamine, et al.
Prety sure it was coke--K isn't usually snorted out of those weird little party thingies. Not that I'd know (Plus havign someone hooked on K on a tv show would make for pretty boring tv--not the drama and over heightened coke thing)
I love this show!
It is so good. I like the storyline set up with Siobhan sleeping with her best friend's husband and I can't wait to see how Bridget plays along now that she is "pregnant"
Totally wasn't expecting the twist that Siobhan is still alive and went to Paris. Can't wait to see everything unfold. I hope its a hit.
You'd think after being so careful to cover her tracks she would have known better to loudly blurt out "I'm pregnant" with others home...
The Paris thing was ruined in one of the extended trailers the CW released. Grrrr.

But I guess we will see how Ringer stacks up when The CW premieres The Secret Circle (Charmed Redux) and Hart Of Dixie (Fake Scrubs/Grey's Anatomy medical comedy).
The boat scene with the two Sarah's is getting some major flack on blogs, twitter, etc.

Skin have you seen Secret Circle it's very different from Charmed--it's much more Vampire Diaries with Witches--and good. I never got the Charmed love though I admit--it felt like bad camp to me.
Ohthat boat scene did look really odd--I assume it was done in studio? but i didn't really mind as I assumed it was meant to have an unrealistic dreamlike look.

So SMG returned to television last night in the new CW thriller Ringer. I know I already compared it to Buffy, but it actually is much more akin to a Brian DePalma movie. It’s a little Hitchcock, a little soap opera, and a lot over the top. The premiere episode is far from perfect, but I think it lays enough ground work and suspense to keep watching. Plus, the lead character has a giant, wall-size photo of herself in her living room a la Sigourney Weaver in Working Girl. That is something you just have to respect.

I think Gemma is helping Siobhan too - at first I thought she called her there because she found out about the affair and hired a hitman.
So Bridget is using Siobhan's identity to get away from her problems, while Siobhan is using Bridget to get away from her problems! I love it! LOL And it's so soapy with Siobhan having an affair with her friend's husband - and now she's pregnant. So now Bridget has to pretend she's pregnant. What a fun show to watch!
