Ginny & Georgia is the story of a daunting mother who loves her children unconditionally. As the storyline unfolds, the audience sees that her life journey had been nothing less than a roller-coaster ride.
The show is a typical whimsical American drama revolving around Georgia Miller (Brianne Howey), her teenage daughter Virginia Miller or Ginny (Antonia Gentry), and her young son Austin (Diesel La Torraca).
The story of season 1 revolves around the trio, who moves to Wellsbury, Massachusetts after the death of Georgia’s husband Kenny (Darryl Scheelar). Ginny is a teenager who has had a difficult childhood adjusting to her mother’s lifestyle which makes them switch cities every few month or years. While Georgia promises Wellsbury to be different from the rest, we see how their lives unwind in this new town.
As the story unrolls, we see that it was actually Georgia who poisoned Kenny because he molested Ginny. This action proves her to be a protective mother and reveals her character to be of someone who likes to keep the power in her own hands. Georgia’s character traits are further conveyed to the audience by continued oscillation between the present and Georgia’s bitter past.
Contrary to Georgia, Ginny is confused, under-confident and is in a continuous struggle to get to know herself. A large part of her problem is that she is half black and half white, which makes her unfit for either community, in a society that is woke about the fundamentals of racism. Wellsbury transforms her and gives character to her personality. As she moves towards adulthood, she tries to understand the layers in Georgia’s demeanour.
Where does the mother-daughter duo stand at the end of season 1? Let’s find out.
Here is the Ginny & Georgia ending explained in detail:
As elated and satisfied Ginny is to be friends with Maxine (Sara Waisglass), Abby (Katie Douglas), and Norah (Chelsea Clark). Her spirits are soon in tatters when all of them get to know that she has slept with Marcus.
Max gets extremely mad at her and so do the girls. Hunter, Ginny’s boyfriend overheads the conversation and immediately breaks up with her.
Soon Marcus arrives, and in an attempt to clear out the air, he says that Ginny and he made a mistake. His statement does not help to ease down the situation much, rather makes Ginny more upset.
Does Georgia really have it all?
While Georgia very gracefully veers her way through the groovy path. The last scene of the web series leaves the audience with a loose end about Georgia’s past.
While the audiences, all along knew that she killed Kenny, framed Austin’s dad for embezzlement, laundered with her Mayor’s office accounts, but her list of bad deeds doesn’t end here.
It is revealed that Georgia was once identified as Georgia Greene and Anthony Greene, her then-husband, has been missing from New Orleans for years now.
Although a flashback shows her killing Greene, the mystery is yet to unfold, if Netflix decides to come with season 2 of the web series.
Ginny and Austin’s great escape
Ginny, all her life, has struggled to find who she truly is. At the end of the web series, she finally realises that she is no different from Georgia. Therefore, in order to take power in her hands, she flees, taking Austin along with her.
We see her desperate to run away, just like her mother has been doing all her life. Meanwhile, Georgia’s voiceover says, “[Ginny] will never have to know the fear and desperation that I did.”
