Can anyone id this plant?
I think it is bitter... something?
It has tiny purple flower buds that I think will turn into red berries?

Do you really think so? When I Google it, the leaves look quite different...?

Yes, deadly nightshade refers to Atropa belladonna, which is truly deadly.

Belladonna is an upright plant with really shiny single black berries. Bittersweet has more of a sprawling form and gets red berry clusters. Bittersweet is mildly toxic, whereas belladonna can really pack a punch, and the berries are apparently fairly palatable. Your plant looks like bittersweet to me, which grows as a non-native weed in many parts of the U.S. I find it down by my creek.

Climbing Nightshade (Solanum dulcamara)

This is my first seeing bittersweet (without including the word nightshade) to refer to something other than Celastrus.

Regardless of common name confusion, there seems to be a consensus that the asked-about plant is S. dulcamara.
