I hope you all had a good Thanksgiving and/or week off from the show. My husband, kids, mother and I went Disney World — a first for all of us. While in sunny Florida, we also had a lovely Thanksgiving at my sister-in-law’s house. We just got back Monday night. It was a fantastic trip, and I’ve never been so tired in my life, so this is going to be a quick and dirty recaplet of this crazy “mid-season finale.” I’ll hit all the details in tomorrow’s weecap, okay? Okay.
Our show is fully behind my quick and dirty plan, because just minutes in, Andrew and Bridget hit the sheets for what must be their first time. Andrew has filled his Park Ave. home with white roses and strewn petals all about the place, too, because he’s just that perfect. He and “Shiv” will be celebrating their six year anniversary. When he asks Bridget if she can believe it’s been six years, she cracks that it feels more like six weeks. Heh. Don’t lose your sense of humor, B.
When last we met, Malcolm broke into NA Charlie/John’s real house — the one in which he was holding Gemma prisoner. Remember? While there, Mal snagged a cell phone. In this episode, he charges it up only to find it’s not John’s, but Gemma Butler’s. John knows Bridget and Malcolm are onto him, so he calls Siobhan (who is in Paris trying to make nice with boy-toy/sugar daddy/pawn Tyler, and has blackened her own eye in a failed attempt to win Ty’s sympathy) and tells her he’s going to get rid of Gemma. Shiv, surprisingly, is not down with this plan, but since she can’t immediately come up with the funds to pay John double what she promised him, he says he’s doing things his way.
Malcolm convinces Bridget that they need to notify the police about Gemma’s phone. They do, and the cops search John’s real house, but he’s already moved Gemma. Since John is an ex-cop, and Malcolm has only been clean for about six days, the cops are more inclined to believe John’s lies. Bridget goes to Henry, to update him on what they know about Gemma. Henry tells “Shiv” that she’s making matters worse. She should just stay out of it, and let the cops do their job.
