I mean, is there anything truer than the fact that feelings are hard? Me thinks no. Feelings are a bitch. Feelings are overwhelming, feelings feel too much, and feelings can make everything overwhelming, as we learn in Ginny & Georgia 1×09 “Feelings Are Hard.”
At the end of episode 8, Ginny was overwhelmed with her feelings and told off Marcus. Naturally she’s upset by what she said and filled with all sorts of regret. She reacted out of fear and now that she’s texting him with no response, her feelings are heightened. She knows that he has a concussion and he’s going to be okay, but she wants to hear it from him.
That morning after Marcus’s accident, Ginny is pulling away from Zion. She feels bad, which hey is growth because she feels bad. She goes into work and Paul and Nick remark that she looks tired. I mean we all get it – when someone says that you look tired, they are telling you that you look like shit. She tells them about Marcuses accident.
Georgia’s world is collapsing. In Texas, Gabriel has won a request to get Kenny’s body excavated. In her house Zion and Austin are playing hide and seek, which leads to Austin hiding in her room and finding all the letters that he’s written his Dad have never been sent.
He’s mad and broken.
Ginny’s upset over her love triangle, but is accepting what is. Like mother, like daughter.
Zion is playing Daddy and has made dinner to take over to the Bakers. He’s really wanting to give everything a go, but he knows that it’s complicated. Him and Georgia are always complicated. Ginny’s excited to go over there, she sees her opening to talk to Marcus.
The dinner is going great. The Bakers are more interested on if Georgia is dating Paul or Zion than anything. But Ginny she’s focused and excuses herself to go check on Marcus. While in his room, Padma arrives with his homework. She warns Ginny that he will hurt her. But I don’t think that Ginny believes that because as far as she’s concerned she hurt him.
There is a lot of hurt to go around, because later that week, Sophie dumps Max. This means that MANG is going to need to pick up the pieces and when it comes to Max, I am pretty sure it’s gonna be overkill and dramatic. Ginny wants to be there for her best friend, but also sneaks off to see Marcus. Girl shoulda stayed focused, because there is just too much that could go wrong here.
And it does. Because Abby comes looking for Ginny and finds her and Marcus about to kiss. Abby tells her to keep quiet, because if Max finds out this will ruin MANG and Abby can’t deal with that right now.
I want to know where was this way of thinking when you were like slapping people and telling them off Abby?
These kids don’t realize that the truth is always going to come out and the longer that you prolong it – well, the worse that it is going to get.
Up until Paul’s rally, I would really believe that Georgia and Zion were going to make it work. But when he sees Georgia in her element, he knows that he can’t take them away from that. So when she gets home, she sees his bags packed and he’s ready to go. He knows what Paul can provide for her and wants her to have everything that she wants, so he’s going to leave.
I have a lot of questions about that – cause he was just talking about how he’s successful and can work from anywhere and how he’s going to contribute. What changed?
The thing is he now has to break this to Ginny. How’s he going to tell his daughter that he’s leaving? He explains it to her and she’s pissed. She has every reason to be. But what it does make her realize is that she loves Marcus. Oh how the tides have turned when she’s the one climbing through his window versus him through hers.
She confesses her love and the two end up hooking up. Full on dry humping and then sex. They have a connection and you can tell that these two love each other, but you also can’t help but wonder if they are good or toxic for each other.
He opens up to her about how dark shit got after his friend died and it’s nice to see his walls down. It’s nice when hers come down too. He had thought a lot about death, and the whole conversation you can just tell that with her – things feel different. He feels lighter and as if someone sees him.
It leads to Ginny explaining why she burns herself. He suggests therapy – which honestly, I am proud of him for doing – and she’s open to it. He lets her know that it has done wonders for him and she thinks it’s a good idea.
But this is Ginny & Georgia and if you think that shit is calming down, you’re wrong. Shit’s just starting to get real. That’s the thing – you become too complacent and comfortable you miss the pieces that are falling out of place around you.
Kenny’s body is missing.
Austin’s founds his letters and tells Ginny.
Cynthia’s broken into the mayors office to find out if Georgia is stealing money.
And then there is Hunter. Hunter wants to talk. But I am ignoring that because Hunter is on my last nerve.
I have a feeling that Georgia’s house is about to crumble and well, we all know that won’t end well. But who is it going to fall on?
