A Very Merry Ginny and Georgia Christmas Special

Episode 6 of Ginny and Georgia season 2 starts with Ginny narrating how she loves Christmas and how her mom used to make it nice even though they were poor. She says this as she puts up Christmas decorations. Ginny finishes up by saying ‘merry Christmas’ but in a gloomy mood.

In their bedroom, Paul puts the gun inside a box saying he’s going to drop it off at the police station. Georgia is still in bed covered up because Ginny apparently called her a monster. Paul tries to make her feel better by telling her Ginny still loves her. He also asks her if there are more guns that she has hidden. Georgia says no and Paul leaves.

At the breakfast table, Georgia shows up still covered up in a blanket looking all gloomy. They are talking about hosting Paul’s parents for Christmas Eve and Ginny notices her mom is still upset. She suggests that the two go to Boston to shop while Austin and Paul go out to cut a tree with his brother and his father.

Georgia leaves to take a shower and Ginny thinks she broke her. Ginny tells Marcus that she has never seen her mom so sad. They talk about Christmas but Marcus is not as into Christmas as Ginny is.

The girls pick Ginny and she leaves her notebook behind. They head over to where Bracia is and Bracia has to do what Ginny decides between giving tickets or giving a hat to Bryon. Ginny decides on getting tickets.

Marcus is leaving and he sees Ginny’s notebook and he picks it up. Georgia is busy getting the venue for the Christmas carnival ready. He buys costumes for both Paul and Nick. Nick is to be the elf helping Santa while Paul becomes Santa.

Georgia shows him a photo she posted on social media and Paul is not pleased. Abby and Maxine are walking while talking when Maxine tells Abby how she liked Sophie and Josh’s photo on Instagram and how she sent her a long text message. Sophie did not reply and so Maxine feels awful about it.

At the restaurant, Ginny is all excited about Christmas and tells her friends that they’ll be doing face painting for the children at the carnival. At Austin’s school, Gil is busy doing some magic to make the kids happy. After the magic tricks session, Austin asks him why he doesn’t want her mom to know if he is around and Gil tells him it is a secret that he shouldn’t let out.

Gil is leaving and before he is out of the door, Paul comes to pick up Austin for the tree-cutting activity they had planned for.

Bracia and Bryon see each other and Bryon discovers that Bracia had him as her secret Santa. They both plan to go to a game. Next, Maxine gives Silver her gift and she is very happy about the gift.

Georgia goes to get Ginny from Joe’s restaurant for their shopping in Boston. Joe tells her Ginny is a kid and she didn’t mean anything she said in her poem.

Ginny tries again to apologize to her mom but Georgia is not hearing any of that. So they proceed to go shopping.

There is a flashback of when Ginny was young and enjoying a simple Christmas time with Georgia but young Gil shows up with lots of gifts and a necklace for Georgia as a Christmas gift.

Simone and Zion are busy catching up at Zion’s home and   Ginny and Georgia show up but Georgia seems a little jealous of Simone. The two don’t say much and they leave saying they visited to say hi to Zion.

Georgia invites Zion and Simone, but Simone declines saying she is to have hers with her family. Georgia invites Zion’s parents to the Christmas Eve dinner and Ginny and Georgia leave.

Georgia is busy trying to find  Simone’s social media profile, she’s kind of jealous. She is disappointed that Ginny never told her about Simone. Paul and Austin arrive with a big Christmas tree. Austin is excited about Christmas gifts and goes upstairs. Georgia breaks the news to Paul that she may have invited Zion and his parents for Christmas Eve dinner and Paul is not happy about it so Georgia covers her face with a blanket she was holding.

While upstairs Austin looks for something and accidentally finds a gun and sees it in his mom’s bedroom. Paul calls him and he returns it and runs downstairs.  On the other hand, Gabriel is busy with his investigation and sees an image related to Ginny. He googles and finds out it is related to ‘the Blood Eyes biker gang’ which is connected to money laundering and racketeering cases.

At the Christmas carnival, Ginny’s friends are busily face-painting the kids from the shelter.   Georgia welcomes everyone and invites Paul who is the mayor and Santa to welcome everyone. Paul sits on Santa’s chair and looks at Georgia with a pissed look.

Marcus and Austin are playing and Ginny joins them but Marcus leaves saying goodbye to Austin. Max joins Austin and Ginny and tells Ginny that Marcus must love her because he hates being around people.

Paul is busy taking pictures with people and  Gabriel, the private detective comes in. Georgia sees him and is not happy. She approaches him. Gabriel tells her about his findings and this makes Georgia uncomfortable butcher hides it well.

Cynthia visits Joe at the restaurant and tells him that what had happened between them was a mistake and she does not want any more complications in her life. She says Merry Christmas to him and leaves.

At the carnival, the mayor is now pissed and goes to Georgia to tell her how he is feeling. He feels disrespected both at home and at work.

Maxine, Ginny and Bracia are together and  Bryon says hi as he passes and all the girls look at him. At the kissing booth, Sophie and Silver are next and Maxine notices that. She asks Silver to let her be next so she can meet Sophie. Bracia tries to stop her but she wouldn’t hear her.

She proceeds to the booth where she finds Sophie and asks if she would like to kiss. Sophie tells her to stop liking anything about her on Instagram and to stop texting her.

Back at Ginny’s house, Marcus and Ginny are talking and Ginny does not like that they won’t spend Christmas together. Marcus gifts her notebook with a new cover and leaves.

Ginny asks if Georgia needs help and she accepts the help.  Georgia falls down with potatoes and she lays there frustrated wondering why no one likes her. Ginny assures her that she loves her. Ginny is also overwhelmed and she gets a lighter. She then leaves Georgia to pick up the fallen potatoes. In Ginny’s room, she closes the door behind her and lights up the lighter.

At dinner, Georgia thanks Lynette for coming last minute but Lynette says she loves spending Christmas with Ginny. The conversations become unfavorable to Georgia and she leaves to get more wine, Ginny joins her but she doesn’t want to hear anything Ginny has to say.

Zion tries to talk to her, and she listens but Paul comes and tells Zion he will handle it from there. Georgia however doesn’t want to hear anything Paul has to say and she leaves.

Ginny is playing the piano in her bedroom and Lynette, her grandmother, joins her in singing. She later tells her she doesn’t hate Georgia and that she should always call them when she needs anything.

Georgia goes to Joe’s restaurant and wonders why Joe is all alone. But Joe says he will be at his parents on New Year’s. They talk and Georgia says she feels like Joe doesn’t judge him in the end, Georgia hugs Joe and leaves. As she leaves she mentions that she has always loved horses and Joe says he remembers.

Georgia finds Paul sitting and drinking wine, he offers her a glass and she accepts, lying on his chest. At the same time, Joe is closing the restaurant, and Cynthia comes in and they start making out.

On Christmas day, Austin runs to open the gifts. The rest of the family joins him and Austin does some magic trick that makes Georgia uncomfortable. There is a knock at the door and in comes Gil. They are not pleased by the surprise visit or the gifts he offers Georgia.  Austin and Paul go sledging while Gil and Georgia are left behind to say goodbye. Gil tells Georgia he’s changed and she tells him he needed to. After Gil leaves, Georgia rushes to shut the door.

Georgia sees Ginny’s therapy notebook and opens it. Immediately she calls Zion to tell him that Ginny has been burning herself. Zion tells her he knows about it but she’s trying to be better. She rushes to Ginny’s bedroom and demands that Ginny shows her where she’s been burning herself. Georgia tries to force her but Ginny throws her off. She removes her pants and shows her.

Georgia is heartbroken and asks if this was after Kenny and Ginny tells her it was before. They embrace and they both start sobbing. Georgia tells her she is sorry she never noticed and she should tell her all about her pain.


The Episode Review

I felt bad for Georgia when she saw the burn marks on Ginny’s legs. She looked broken and Ginny looked sad and vulnerable. As parents, it is not easy to see your child going through pain or to learn they have been hiding it from you. Georgia has always tried to protect Ginny and she is realizing she can’t protect Ginny from herself.

Ginny has been through a lot and self-harming is what she does to deal with the emotional pain she feels. It is good that Zion is getting her the help she deserves.

The return of Gil shook Georgia and I don’t blame her, he doesn’t come off as a good guy. I can’t wait to see how Georgia will handle this.
