The ending of season 1 was tumultuous, to say the very least. With the death of Georgia’s husband, Kenny, hanging over the whole season, the plot point came to a head when Ginny discovered that it was Georgia who killed him. (Georgia murdered Kenny after finding out that he had sexually abused Ginny). With this information, Ginny takes off with Austin, leaving their mother behind, to find her father. Meanwhile, Georgia is none the wiser about her kids’ departure, nor about Ginny’s recent discovery. She believes she has avoided any further investigation into Kenny’s murder and believes that Ginny will “never have the fear” that she did.
Season 2 will likely pick up right where season 1 left off, with Georgia discovering her kids have left. Creator Sarah Lambert spoke with Oprah Magazine about her hope for a season 2, saying, “Season 1 really did feel like a season 1. We just started uncovering some of the layers for all characters, across the board, that we want to dive into. [We’re] hoping we get the chance.”
Lambert also discussed the further exploration of the mother-daughter relationship that awaits in the next season. She told Oprah Magazine, “The relationship between Ginny and Georgia is the third character in the show. It lives on its own. It’s constantly changing and evolving. There are so many scenes where the two of them are communicating with each other over everyone’s head. They’re intrinsically wound.”
Let’s hope we get to see more of Ginny and Georgia soon.
