Storage Facility: John unlocks his storage unit, turns on the light and returns to his car. When he opens the trunk, Gemma is not there! She springs up out of nowhere, clocks him with a tire iron and says this week's episode title: "That's what you get for trying to kill me." John: "How are you even alive?" Gemma: "You've got bad aim." An ex-cop couldn't shoot her, and at least disable if not kill her, at point blank range? That's just...sacrificing characterization at the altar of suspense. Bad Show. No biscuit for you.
Now I don't want to be hard on our girl Gemma here, because she's been through hell, and I'm still wondering how she got to relieve herself when she was all tied up. [I'll take away your bucket. --Wesley] But the thing is, she only hits him once with the tire iron. Once. And it's not like he's pretending to be knocked out. So...does she hit him again, or go for his gun, or anything reasonable? No. She grabs his phone and tries to call 9-1-1, but she can't get a signal. She then starts looking for his....keys. After all these weeks of hoping she was alive and the last couple of weeks of being glad she's alive, I'm wondering if we're being shown that Gemma is too stupid to live.
Gemma makes it to John's car and sees the keys in the ignition, but instead of sitting her ass down in the driver's seat, she plops across it, belly down and just paws at the keys. John comes up behind her, with the gun she so should have grabbed. Gemma sobs. "Why are you doing this to me?" John: "Blame Siobhan." Gemma: "You mean Bridget." John: "No. I mean Siobhan. That bitch is still alive." BANG, he shoots her.
We cut to John dragging Gemma's body across the floor. She certainly appears dead, but after everything that just went down, I'm less sure of this than I am of the rape/not-rape scenario with Juliet and Logan. It doesn't matter though, because SMG is here, and she's pointing a gun at John. [These things? Never helpful. --Buffy] Is she Bridget, or is she Siobhan? With such dim lighting it's hard to tell, but John certainly thinks she's Shiv, and since she is alone (instead of with Andrew, Tool Belt, and She-Cop) I'm thinking it can't be Bridget. Oh wait, now I can see her black eye. It is Shiv. How the hell did she get to New York so quickly and manage to find John, at just the right time? Willow must have helped her out with some mojo, yeah?
