Terriers "Ring-A-Ding-Ding" Review

TERRIERS “Ring-A-Ding-Ding” Season 1 Episode 6 – Hank and Britt are asked to find a ring that is a family heirloom of a woman who is dying of cancer. She thinks it was stolen but her husband actually gave it his mistress before he found out about her illness. He stayed with his wife to save her from going through a divorce too and when the girlfriend dumped him for that, she refused to give the ring back. The boys go all over town, tracking down each person who bought the ring and finally track it down to the wife herself. She found the ring, bought it and tried to track it down. All so she could find the name of the woman her husband slept with so that she can file for divorce and amend her will. When she finds out that her husband has a daughter with the woman, it breaks her heart completely and she asks Hank and Britt to keep the ring safe so that it can go to her son someday after she’s gone.

Meanwhile Hank has to attend Gretchen’s engagement party and see how happy she is with her new fiancé. Not only that, he’s got a lovesick Britt on his hands after seeing another couple in love makes Britt realize that there’s no reason to keep on waiting to ask Katie to marry him. But when she goes out with a bunch of friends from school, she has too much to drink and ends up sleeping with someone else. Now she’s got a terrible secret to keep from the man she loves.

My favorite bits…

Britt coming out of the shower and taking Katie straight to bed and her turning around and doing the same thing to him when she got out of the shower herself.

This line from Steph: “Societal norms baffle me. I mean you feel this need to formally announce your engagement to the world and yet I assume you already put your penis in her.”

The look on Britt’s face when he saw Katie with the baby. So sweet.

Feeling so bad for Hank through Jason’s speech.

This bit –
Britt: “Your boob s are huge.”
Maggie: “Stop staring at my son’s lunch.”

Britt telling Katie to go ahead and hang with her younger classmates as he had no trouble hanging out with Hank even though he was “old”.

The dude showing Hank and Britt all of his various ring, even the one.. erm. “downstairs”.

Hank saying the girlfriend kept making a “little” finger gesture and asking the husband what that meant. LOL.

Katie trying to unlock the wrong car. I did that once, completely sober, and it was totally embarrassing.

Steph climbing back up to her “room” after finishing entertaining Jason.

Jason figuring out that it was Hank who has been using his credit cards.

Katie’s horror when she woke up in the wrong bed and realized she’d slept with her professor. Oh boy.

Being not so sure that Hank advising Katie to never tell Britt what happened is such a good idea. Although I agree that it will hurt Britt, I just don’t think she’ll be able to keep a secret like that without consequences to their relationship.

Overall not as much action in this episode of Terriers, but it made up for it in the angst and drama departments. Between a dying woman dealing with a cheating husband fathering a child with another woman, Hank still in love with his ex and seeing her happy with another guy and finally Katie’s dilemma over what she’s done – lots of good stuff.

What did you think of the episode? Got any favorite bits or least favorite bits of your own? I’d love to hear from you!
