Episode 1 of “Ginny and Georgia” Season 2 focused on the growing rift between the mother and the daughter. Georgia cannot seem to understand Ginny’s angst. Meanwhile, Ginny cannot believe the fact that her mother is in denial about many factors and incidents that have taken place in their lives for which Georgia is mostly responsible. Ginny refuses to share her mental health-related issues with her mother, which leads to Ginny indulging in self-harm. On the other hand, Georgia believes that Ginny is acting up because of her age.
Ginny Is Back In School, And Georgia Is Back At Work
Ginny is all set to go back to school, where she knows she will be hated by the gang to which she was closest. She informs Marcus that she is worried about heading back, but she has no other option but to join the school after two weeks of a self-imposed hiatus. As expected, Ginny is ignored by Maxine, Norah, Hunter, and the rest of the gang. Ginny did not expect anything else from them, and she walked off quietly. She also notices Marcus not paying any heed to her, which makes her angry.
Meanwhile, Paul decides to move in with the family. Georgia and Paul agree to tell the kids together about this news. Georgia, trying to make conversation with her daughter, reveals this news to her. Ginny is not surprised. She knew her mother revealed this news to get a reaction from her, which she did not give. She did not want her mother to get satisfaction from her reaction to her mother’s conversation starter. Ginny believes her mother is in denial and cannot come to tell her the truth about all the things that have been happening to their family. Ginny ignores her mother to prove a point.
Georgia drops her son at the preschool when she learns of Cynthia’s news. Her husband is dying, and Cynthia is spending most of her time at home taking care of him. Her son is deeply affected by his father’s terminal ailment. Georgia overhears all this conversation and decides to use this as an opportunity. Georgia is keen on joining the Neighborhood Club. Joining the club would require her to submit a sponsor’s letter written by a member. Georgia decides to woo Cynthia by being nice to her in the wake of the tragedy that has befallen Cynthia. Cynthia also realizes Georgia is taking advantage of her situation and having the audacity to visit her, asking for a favor. Georgia has no love for Cynthia; she is selfish, and she knows it. She is shameless about asking for a favor from someone who stood against her and her fiancé in the elections. Cynthia gets irritated with Georgia and decides not to support her bid for membership at the Neighborhood Club. Cynthia is mad about the fact that Georgia’s concern for her well-being and her husband’s health is not genuine. She knows from the get-go that Georgia is here to ask for a favor knowing Cynthia mentally is in a horrible state.
What Is The Status Of Ginny And Georgia’s Relationship? Are They On Good Terms Or At Loggerheads?
Ginny is very upset at her mother’s behavior towards her. Ginny cannot reveal to her mother the details of her therapy session. Ginny knows her mother would immediately make jokes about her situation and will try her level best to trivialize the matter. Ginny, though, is happy to have found new friends at school. She makes acquaintances with Bracia, who is keen on becoming a part of the school play, which is important to gain points for college applications. Though Hunter helps her with notes for the classes, Ginny is happy to find Bracia’s company.
Georgia joins work after Paul is re-elected, but Nick, who was her good friend, is aware of her embezzlement incident. Nick is afraid to work with her and makes that clear to her. Nick makes a good point that Paul intends to run for higher positions in the future, and if her embezzlement news is leaked, it will hamper his job and Paul’s. Georgia is too confident of the fact that the news will never come out, and she will make sure it is buried. Georgia does not seem to have the foresight to assume it might affect her down the line. Georgia now seems like someone who is very shortsighted and is acting up to protect herself financially. Now that she is marrying the mayor, it does not appear she will have to worry about her finances. But what Nick points out is that her embezzlement might become an issue in the future. Georgia is also confronted by the PI, who harasses her even though he has no proof against her. Georgia threatens to file a case against him. Georgia is confident in the fact that she has covered all the tracks that would link her to Kenny’s murder. She is sure no one can harm her or her family on this basis.
Ginny and Paul talk about the standoff she and Georgia are going through. Paul inadvertently reveals credit cards in the name of Austin. This alarms Ginny and she realizes her mother has opened several credit cards in her name as well. Ginny is shocked to know more of her mother’s secrets. She uses Austin’s credit card to buy a video game for him and threatens her mother by serving Paul a drink that looks like a wolfsbane-derived drink. Georgia is shocked, but she knows Ginny will not take such an extreme step. Ginny pulled this stunt to let her mother know that she was on to her. Ginny and Georgia’s rift is nowhere near an end. She reveals a lot of the pain she has gone through, which led to her indulging in self-harm. Ginny’s self-harming tendencies began when she was 12. The therapist recommends she start writing in a journal that will help collect her thoughts. Zion and Marcus help her by listening to her. Meanwhile, Georgia is not aware of Ginny’s therapy.
The second episode of “Ginny and Georgia” Season 2 did not serve much of a purpose other than to show that Ginny’s fight with her mother and friends is still going on. But thankfully, she has two people to whom she can turn. She is not alone, and she has begun therapy in the hope that it will help her down the line. It will be interesting to know when Ginny and Georgia’s rift will reach a ceasefire.
