The Episode Review

What an episode! I thought Gil was dead for sure. It never ceases to surprise me how Georgia manages to think fast in the face of a storm. She managed to cover up a shooting in a suburb, which takes some skill. At this point, she really shouldn’t marry Paul though.

Gil is right, she will ruin his life too. He is living his dream of being the mayor of the town and helping people. All his dreams will be affected once the truth is revealed.

I find it hard to side with Georgia. The reality is, she’s a criminal and her justifying killing people shows she has no remorse. She is also not a good mom and it is time we stop romanticizing this toxic kind of maternal love. I hope Gabriel finally nails her on a crime.
