Henry is questioned by the cops. Bridget is shot. Andrew makes out with Catherine.
And then we flash back two days earlier. Henry wants Tim Arbogast to take the flash drive to the authorities. Tim does go to the authorities -- but the NYPD, not the SEC. The cops question Henry about Tyler Tool Belt's murder, which is perfectly fair. Poor Tool Belt.
Between episodes, Juliet came clean with Andrew about the scheme with Carpenter, Tessa and Catherine. Andrew wants his money back, so he sets up Catherine and manipulates her into buying his Palm Springs property. He gets some investor in on his plan, so Catherine thinks she's going to make a windfall. She pays Andrew the amount he was taken for in the fraudulent suit.
Meanwhile, Agent Victor "Guyliner" Machado gets suspended from the FBI for roughing up a tarot card dry cleaner customer (who is wearing a suit full of money); I'll hit that in the weecap. Anyhow, Bridget-as-Shiv goes to him and offers to testify as Bridget. Instead, Guyliner decides they should fake Bridget's death, using Shiv, who is really Bridget. That goes to hell, so Guyliner ends up shooting the shooter. When the shooter's cell phone rings, Guyliner answers it. On the other end of the line is Catherine!
I'll be back with all of it in the full weecap, tomorrow. In the meantime, please grade the episode at the top of the page and then join us in the show thread, where we'd rather kill Siobhan.
We open at the police station. Henry "Tool Belt" Butler is being interrogated about Tyler "Boytoy" Barrett's death. The cop suggests it was an accident. Henry swears he didn't do it. The cop asks, "If you didn't, who did?" Okay, I realize Henry did do it, but I still want to ask the cop, "Isn't it your job to figure that out?" We cut to a shot of Catherine making out with Andrew. From there we cut to a shot of a sniper. He's training his sight on Bridget, who is inside some abandoned building, talking on her cell phone. The next shot shows her lying on the floor. Is she dead? She sure looks it, but let's not be silly; this is her show. Title card. Commercials.
After the break, we flash back two days earlier. Agent Victor "Guyliner' Machado shows Bridget-as-Shiv and Andrew the tower tarot card from last week. It means nothing to them. When Guyliner tells them the guy who shot Andrew was carrying it and goes into this spiel about it being a marker from a dirty dry cleaner's shop and my word, I respect Nestor Carbonell and you, my gentle readers, too much to go over this nonsense.
Talk turns to Daniel Eknath -- the Macawi minion who was found dead in the park last week. The cops or the feds or someone found his van. There was a log book inside. Eknath had been watching Malcolm Ward. He had addresses in it for Martin/Charles, Malcolm's hotel and the Martins' Park Ave. apartment. Guyliner's theory is that Eknath followed Malcolm to Park Ave and mistook Bridget-as-Shiv for Bridget, which you know, would make him smarter than anyone else on this show. In case Eknath reported back to Macawi that he "thought" he found Bridget, Guyliner is doing everything he can to keep the Martin family safe. Andrew does not find that at all reassuring, since Malcolm disappeared and blah blah incompetence cakes. Guyliner keeps his cool and tells Bridget that NYPD will have some officers watching their apartment and Andrew's office.
When Guyliner leaves, Bridget tells Andrew that Eknath couldn't be the person who attacked her six months ago, because he wouldn't have been in town yet. Andrew's all, "Unless Guyliner is wrong about that, too." And wait a second. Wouldn't it be calming to think Eknath is Bridget-as-Shiv's assailant, since he's dead and all? And wait another second, by the end of this hour, we're going to find out most of the stuff is a red herring, so why am I wasting my time on it? UGH!
