Georgia on the other hand would much prefer that the past be left in the past, after all, she’s got a wedding to plan! But the funny thing about Georgia’s past is that it never stays buried for long…”
Ginny & Georgia follows the complicated dynamic between thirtysomething single mom Georgia (played by Batwoman‘s Brianne Howey) and her teenage daughter Ginny (Raising Dion‘s Antonia Gentry) following their move to the picturesque New England town of Wellsbury. As they attempt to start fresh, Georgia’s dark past and secrets follow them to their new home. In the Season 1 finale, Ginny learned that her mom poisoned her stepfather after she witnessed him, suggestively, putting his hands on Ginny. Knowing the truth about Georgia’s dangerous actions, Ginny did just what her mom taught her: she ran away with her little brother.
