We pick up right where we left off, last week. Agent Victor "Guyliner" Machado goes after the gunman who aimed at Bridget, but shot Andrew. He gets away, but not before Guyliner nearly rips off the perp's back pocket. A tarot card -- the Tower -- falls out. The FBI guys trace it back to a dry cleaning shop. No. I'm not drinking anything stronger than pink lemonade. I swear.
While Andrew is in surgery, Bridget and Juliet sweat it out at the hospital. Don't worry. He lives. By episode's end, he is home in his own bed and he and Bridget are all lovey-dovey again. While Andrew is still under the knife, though, Juliet calls Henry "Tool Belt" Butler and asks him to bring some things to her. When Bridget-as-Shiv explains that Andrew took a bullet for her, Henry realizes that perhaps Real Shiv has been blowing smoke up his ass about Andrew trying to kill her. Back at his place, Henry tells off Shiv and kicks her to the curb. Oh no. If he keeps smartening up, I might have to stop calling him Tool Belt.
Henry asks his father-in-law, Tim Arbogast, to take the invisible twins for the weekend. When Tim picks them up, Henry tells him that he should take his money out of Martin Charles. We later learn that to convince Tim of the Ponzi scheme, Henry gave him the flash drive. That's because Henry killed Tyler "Boytoy" Barrett, but it was an accident, which I'll explain in the recap. Really, if you ask me, that murder rests squarely at the feet of hotel housekeeping.
Shiv leaves Henry a message. Without him, nothing matters, so she's going to visit Andrew and reveal herself. Henry rushes to the hospital and stops her just in time. While they're talking in the hall, Bridget-As-Shiv shows up to visit Andrew. Shiv ducks out of sight. Henry leaves. He ends up taking back Shiv, so I guess he's still a Tool Belt.
In other news, no one can find Olivia. Juliet (who is supposed to Miami with Catherine) goes missing. Andrew suspects Olivia took her, but Bridget finds Juliet at the beach house. Juliet confesses to Bridget about the scheme with Mr. Carpenter, Tessa, and Catherine. When they get back to Park Ave., Bridget is going to tell Andrew, but Guyliner is already at the apartment. He tells her he found one of Macawi's minions -- dead -- and thinks he was in town to kill "Shiv," thinking she was Bridget. Dun dun dun.
Unlike last week, a lot happened, including Bridget telling Andrew about the man she killed. 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 pack for every kind of weather.
Hey Ringlets! A lot happens this week, so let's get right to the story. We return right were we left off last week. Andrew has just been shot. Bridget applies pressure to the wound (and gives us epic Buffy boo-boo face), while Solomon calls 911. Meanwhile, Agent Victor "Guyliner" Machado is off in hot pursuit of the shooter. He confronts the masked man in an alley, but then a club lets out so the shooter runs into the crowd. Guyliner pursues him and almost stops him from hopping a fence. For a second, I think he's going to pants the guy, but instead he just rips off his back pocket. Something falls to the ground. The perp kicks Guyliner in his handsome face and gets away. Guyliner picks up the fallen item. It's a tarot card -- the Tower. Title card.
Juliet finds Bridget in the hospital waiting room. Bridget tells Juliet that someone tried to shoot her and Andrew jumped in front of the bullet. He's in surgery right now and it will be a few hours before they know anything. Poor Juliet. Bridget is the best mother she'll ever have.
Over at Gramercy Park, Shiv and Henry are sleeping when he gets a phone call from Juliet telling him about the shooting. When Henry tells Shiv there was a shooting at the loft, she nearly has a hate-gasm as she asks, "Bridget?" She's surprised to hear that it's Andrew. Henry's off to pick up a few things from Park Ave and bring them to the hospital.
FBI Office: Guyliner exposits to Agent Handsome about the symbolism behind the Tower tarot card. I will spare you. Guyliner figures the shooter is on his way to Canada now, so there's no sense focusing on him. Instead, he wants to look at the fact that all these Martin/Charles employees -- Tyler, Malcolm, Andrew -- are dead, missing or injured. Handsome says SEC Agent Lanfair reports the Martin/Charles case is going on the back burner, because without Tyler, they have no evidence. Guyliner is frustrated that the growing body count isn't keeping the case front and center. He hands the tarot card off to Handsome. "You can figure out why our hitman was carrying that." Meanwhile, Guyliner will try to figure out how Malcolm got involved in this mess. Hopefully, Andrew will survive to give them some answers.
When Henry arrives at the hospital, Juliet is sleeping with her head in Bridget's lap. Henry takes in Bridget's tears as he offers to get her coffee and asks how Andrew is. She tells him someone tried to shoot her and Andrew saved her. Henry asks, "Who'd want to shoot you?" Is it just me or does Bridget almost look guilty as she says, "I don't know." I was gonna crack that the list is too long to sum up, but it may just be Macawi and Shiv. Soon, the surgeon comes out and reports Andrew did just fine and will make a full recovery. Juliet's awake now. Henry cocks his head with interest, as he watches the warm embrace between Bridget and Juliet.
