As mentioned before (and not originally by me) no one in this joint has the benefit of peripheral vision, so Andrew never spots Shiv, even though she's standing in the very room where he finds his briefcase. When he's distracted by a phone call from Olivia, it gives Shiv a place to hide (okay, she's only behind a curtain, but it's better than when she was standing out in the open). She takes her own cell phone out and looks at the time. She's 37 minutes late for her 10:00 AM with Tool Belt. We cut to the loft, where he's cursing Siobhan's name, and then back to Park Ave. Bridget arrives with the dry cleaning, and is surprised to find Andrew home. Shiv seems a little put out that Bridget and Andrew can make such easy conversation about Juliet, the party, dress selections and the new boulder of a ring. She gapes as she watches her sister kiss her husband. When the couple walks out of the room, Shiv makes her way out of hiding and finishes downloading the files and makes to leave. The elevator dings, but the noise that stops Shiv is the sound of the shower.
We're back to where we were at the top of the hour. Bridget is getting ready for the shower in which she washes neither her hair nor face (you never pointed that out, mum). She lays down the ring, disrobes and gets in. Shiv enters the bathroom, gets way too close for comfort and stares at her nekkid sister (as well as her own reflection in the glass shower doors). The shortest shower on record comes to an end. Did you just have some dirt on your belly, B? Bridget turns around. Shiv is gone. Bridget wraps herself in a towel and walks by the vanity, not noticing the soap dish which is now shockingly devoid of her bling.
Outside, Shiv slips on the ring and calls Henry, but her call goes straight to voicemail. Inside, Bridget returns to the bathroom and finds the ring gone. She gasps and fiddles with the drain stopper. Her phone rings. It's the doorman, announcing the caterers have arrived. Bridget asks him to find her a plumber.
Party, Night: Andrew compliments Bridget, but notices she's not wearing her ring. She lies that she took it to get resized. "It fell off again, today. I should have taken it yesterday." Why lie about the resizing, Bridget? No one complicates your life more than you do, honey. Not even your sister.
In Juliet's room, Andrea peeks out the door and confirms that Mr. Carpenter is there. Andrea is still counseling Juliet to tell her parents what happened. Juliet says she has done a lot of crappy stuff and doesn't want to screw things up with them. She talks about the trouble between her and Shiv, and then gets to utter yet another episode title (is anyone keeping count): "It just got normal." She wants it to stay that way. Andrew pops his head on and tells Juliet to hustle and get out to the party.
