This season of Ginny & Georgia is weird. It’s weird because we’re only four episode and it feels like an entire season has passed. It feels like so much has happened, keeps happening, and as if there is no end to it in sight. Not that it bothers us, per say, but more so that we’re having a hard time keeping up with everything.
But this episode felt as though it was a little bit of a filler. A way to tie up old storylines in order to move forward with new ones. And while parts of it felt forced, it all felt a little necessary. Why?
Because this show isn’t anything like its first season, even though it’s everything like it. It’s the character growth that makes it unique. It’s the character growth that makes us need to wrap up moments and move forward.
And part of that means wrapping up the anger and resentment that is happening between Max, Abby, Nora, and Ginny. What better than a birthday to make that happen. Max and Marcus’ birthday to be exact.
We all know that Georgia isn’t a normal mom, but she’s definitely trying to do better. Granted Georgia’s like is still a bunch of lies and regrets, but she’s also wanting to build a life that is different. At least, that’s what we’re believing because she is marrying Paul. We have to find some reason for her marrying Paul, because we don’t understand why anyone would really want to do that.
He’s hot, yes.
BUT HE IS BORING.
Georgia sees Marcus sneaking over, and while she continues to sit on her balcony and smoke her weed (which we’re not hating on, cause weed is expensive), she lets Marcus get into the house, before she makes her way to Ginny’s room to interrupt the moment.
While no one wants their Mom walking in on them, Ginny should be a little thankful that Georgia knocks at the door, because judging by the look on Marcus’ face, she doesn’t know to guard the teeth and is scraping at his dick versus well… doing pleasurable things to it.
Georgia and Marcus smoke a blunt, getting down to the nitty gritty of their conversation. Georgia tells Marcus that when the time comes, she wants him to promise to let Ginny go. While, I don’t think it’s right that she tells Marcus that Ginny is better than him – it doesn’t shock me. After all, isn’t this part of what parents do?
At least every single parent that I have ever met has always had something to say about their kid being too good for someone else. One has to wonder if anyone ever realizes what someone is at one age, doesn’t mean that they’ll be that person at another age.
Marcus though, he’s taking it all in and to heart. The boy is used to people underestimating him and thinking the worst. In his fragile state of mind, he’s also thinking that people’s opinions of him are right. It’s fucked up how Georgia treats the situation, but also I get it. We don’t think anyone is ever good enough for our kids or the people that we love.
But the main reason for this episode was to establish relationships. It was to make sure that relationships were fixed, changed, or established. It was to move all of the characters forward. It was for some sort of peace.
Max and Ginny finally have it out and they realize where they both stand. You have to admire Ginny, because no matter what has happened to her, she remains loyal and there for the people that she loves. That includes Max. She doesn’t get the way that Max is behaving, but she also knows that she can call her on it.
The two of them have it out and honestly, it’s pretty civil for teenagers. I was a lot crueler as a teenager and our fights were stupid. The truth is teenager is cruel. But seeing them all come together, seeing the way that friends reunited was a good thing.
Georgia and Paul had told Ginny that they would be out on Friday, so Ginny has Max and Marcus’s birthday party at her house. Of course Georgia finds out, which I am not hating on. She and Ellen have also forgiven each other and are forging this new relationship where they report what their kids are doing to each other.
So they break up the party and it’s amazing. It’s amazing because they were funny and it was hilarious. It was amazing that Georgia is finding a way to be the parent she wants to be.
And well, I don’t think that Georgia and Paul are meant to be together. I think she’s trying to be this person that she thinks is perfect. However, if she can’t be who she is… is it really love? Personally I think that she belongs with Zion.
It’s Georgia being excited over Ginny throwing the party that is everything though. She, at that point, is like Ginny’s a normal teenager.
Paul may not get the way that things are, but we’re not concerned about him. If anything, he won’t be around long enough for us to care.
At least one hopes.
- We’d rather die than ask our parent how to give a good blow job
- Love Zion and Ginny’s talks
- Ginny needs to be more open in therapy
- Georgia and Ellen getting along – didn’t see it coming
- Hunter and Ginny’s talk is long over due
- We need more Bracia in our lives
