Ginny and Georgia (2021) s01e10 Episode Script

The Worst Betrayal Since Jordyn and Kylie

We live in a man's world.
I learned that from a very early age.
And it is exhausting to exist in a world not designed for you, a world that doesn't take you seriously, where you matter less.
Women are 75% more likely to die in a car crash because all seat belt safety tests are designed for men.
What do you do with that? It's not one big thing that crushes a spirit.
It's death by a million paper cuts.
Men, the space they take up, the room, their entitlement, their voices just louder and more.
Men growing up, seeing more men.
Men at the top.
Men in power.
They don't see out of their own eyes our vacant stares back at them, our bottled anger, our wonder at how they got to be so satisfied in their knowledge that the world is made for them.
So what was I supposed to do with that? How does one climb the ranks of a system rigged against them? I'll tell you.
You adapt.
You learn to survive.
I've done things I'm not proud of, and I've done things I never want my kids to know about, but I'd do 'em again.
I'd do anything to protect my kids like no one ever protected me.
Anything.
OK.
The election is tomorrow.
Your opponent, Cynthia Fuller, is running her campaign attacking your lack of family values, and now you're engaged.
How would you respond to critics about the timing of your proposal? I am marrying Georgia because I fell in love with her and her kids.
It's as simple as that.
How did you propose? I, um… It was so romantic.
We were working late one night, and he handed me this file and asked me to put it in my desk drawer.
And I'm like, "The file goes in the filing cabinet.
" On and on about this desk drawer until finally, he opens it, and inside is this little velvet box.
That's a very good answer.
Hey.
What a happy tableau.
I know, right? Thank you.
Now, Georgia, you're relatively new to Wellsbury.
Would you say it's a good fit for you and the children? Absolutely.
It helps that everyone's been so welcoming.
Austin, what do you like about Wellsbury? Austin? Buddy? Mom.
Mom.
He's… He's shy.
What about you, Virginia? What do you like about Wellsbury? My friends.
Hey, guys! Hey, I waited for you at berry tree.
Oh, ha ha! Avoid eye contact.
Don't sit with her.
I get it.
Hey, joke's over.
Expelliarmus! This is it.
 Polls open at 10:00 a.
m.
If your fingers aren't broken, you aren't crossing them hard enough, so pray and rub whatever crystals you believe in.
Hi, yes.
The fireworks are a rush order.
Amazing.
This means the world to me.
Thanks again.
Does it make me nervous that you're buying fireworks and planning a huge party, though not a single vote has been cast? Am I superstitious about that? Yes.
Yes, I am.
I'm gonna agree with Nick on this one.
We should not jump the gun.
Not right now.
How about we combine it with our engagement party? Invite the whole damn town.
Really blow it out.
- Um, no.
Not happening.
- Yeah.
Hi.
Paul.
We need a moment.
OK.
Yeah.
Of course.
Um, why don't you step into my office? Cynthia.
You think she's here to concede? Hey, Nick.
Why don't you, uh, join me on this? Sure.
Hey.
Hey.
We should talk.
Yeah.
We should.
Seats, please.
Class has begun.
We'll talk later.
Yeah.
Everyone take out your copies of A Room of One's Own.
We were just finishing up with chapter three.
- "It is one of the great advantages…" - Hey, are we OK? "…that one can pass even a very fine…" I'm gonna take a brief pause to point out the word that comes next.
Now, the N-word is obviously a problematic word in today's context unless, of course, you're listening to a rap song… Word! However, I think it's important that we highlight that during the time, this word was not as polarizing.
It was a different time.
Also, I'd like to point out that a female wrote this book.
But back to the word.
I'm not going to say it out loud because, well, frankly, it can be very upsetting.
Right, Ginny? "That one can pass even a very fine…" Blank.
"…without wishing to make an English woman of her.
That woman then, who was born with a gift of poetry in the 16th century, was an unhappy woman, a woman at strife against herself.
All of the conditions of her life, all of her own instincts were hostile to the state of" Hey, you OK? Yeah, um… My English teacher's just a dick.
Huh.
Let me guess.
You have Mr.
Gitten? - You had him? - Yep.
All last year he called me "B" 'cause he couldn't pronounce "Bracia.
" I feel like I've been going crazy this whole year.
No one else seems to notice or care.
Just because there's no bullying, and we have a gender-neutral bathroom, people think this place has no issues.
Yes, exactly.
Gitten's the worst.
He's like the dad from Get Out.
You just know he voted for Obama twice and is really proud and gross about it.
And he never chose me to read for Juliet.
And I'm a phenomenal Juliet.
I go to theater camp every summer, so I have Juliet on lock.
Whatever.
He sucks, but I'm here for you.
Oh my God.
Hearing you say that makes me feel really relieved.
Well, I've been in Wellsbury my whole life, so I didn't want you to think you were on your own.
I sort of got the feeling you didn't like me after Halloween.
Dude, I don't care what you do or what you don't do.
It's just… It's hard sometimes.
I don't have that same option you do.
The wear-a-blonde-wig option.
Yeah.
I can join leadership.
I can do field hockey and be high honors, but I can't change my skin color.
I can't modify it the same way you can, and that's just fact.
And I know how it is with those girls.
Mm… They're my friends.
Maybe.
What, you telling me they don't touch your hair? Fist bump you? Call you homie? Do all that fun tokenizing? Yeah.
I just wanted you to know that I'm here, and I get it.
Thanks.
So, what do we do about Gitten? Nothing.
Look at you, V for Vendetta! I gotta get to class.
I know you embezzled money from the city! All I can tell you is that account has the proper balance.
I saw it! On your computer! You looked on my computer? I saw you with that little checkbook at the bank withdrawing cash.
Yeah, I go to the bank, Cynthia.
Doesn't everyone? Are you feeling OK? Do you wanna sit down? No, but she did it.
She wrote the checks, but they weren't registered.
Cynthia… She must have known to put it back! I must have kn… known that you were gonna barge into my office and accuse me of a crime? Oh, Cynthia.
Maybe the stress of the election, it's a little bit much.
I'll handle it.
Get some rest, Cynthia! Oh God.
I am so sorry that happened.
- You know I trust you, right? - Yeah.
And I meant everything I said in that interview.
I love you.
And I am so grateful that you are allowing me to join your family.
OK, I hate to interrupt such inappropriate office behavior, but we have mere hours before the polls open, so if we could all get back to work… He's right.
Poor Cynthia.
There were several checks that were written out to cash that were unaccounted for.
But the money's all there.
Yes, and a deposit was made just this morning for the exact amount that was missing.
Let's just get through tomorrow.
One oat milk latte with a Splenda and an ice cube, please.
Hey, Sam.
Hey, have you heard anything? About what? About Max and them.
Are they mad at me? Oh no! Is there MANG drama? That's too bad.
See ya.
Hi, Hunter! Hunter, I'm working.
Look, we both said some seriously screwed-up stuff.
- But… - I… I feel terrible.
- I don't want it to end like that.
- I don't want it to end at all.
You don't? I know things got heated and ugly, but… I miss you.
I… I love you.
Ginny, we are really busy right now, so… Uh, are… are you coming to Sing Sing later tonight? - We can talk after.
- O… OK.
OK.
OK.
Those are for table eight.
- What? - The plates in your hand, yes? Oh, OK.
OK.
Uh, Jess? Table eight, thank you.
Are you OK? OK.
OK.
Come on.
In 24 hours, two different boys have told me they loved me.
And Hunter, he's… he's so good to me, and he's also really good in bed, and I - Oh my God.
- Oh my God.
Oh, keep… Nope, just truck ahead.
All my friends are mad at me, and I don't know what I did.
I can't lose them because I've felt lonely in every single school until now.
But I wanna be with Marcus, and I don't know how to tell everyone that.
And they're all gonna hate me.
And I know, I know, brutal honesty.
That's right, brutal honesty.
You just… You gotta do it, kid.
OK, fine.
Why don't you go get a coffee? There's coffee here.
I mean, just go.
Take a walk.
Take five.
Aww.
Cool shades.
Oh, thanks.
They're my mom's.
Can I see these? These are, uh… Yeah.
These are vintage Ray-Bans.
These are super rare.
Yeah.
She says they're the first nice thing she's ever owned.
Apparently, a stranger gave them to her at a rest stop when she was a kid.
"These sunglasses and half a sandwich changed my life.
" Whatever.
She says they're lucky.
Like a sign of hope that means that her life could always get better.
So, I stole them.
Um… Yeah.
A horse named Milkshake.
She… She… She kept those the whole time, huh? - What? - That's wild.
Um… Nothing.
I… I just… I guess that's a really long time to… keep a pair of sunglasses.
Right? I mean, that's gotta mean something.
I guess.
Anyway, thanks, Joe.
I'm gonna do that thing you said.
What thing? Brutal honesty.
Oh… Hmm.
Marty, you beautiful man.
I told you Amber Lynn didn't have a leg to stand on.
That money was legit.
I just wish I could have seen her priggish little face when the judge said the will was valid.
Oh, and thanks again for that other thing.
I was, uh, worried there for a second.
No, but seriously, Marty, go into comedy.
Your timing is impeccable.
Hey, Joe! Georgia.
Where's Ginny? Isn't she working now? Uh, she'll… She's gonna be right back.
Uh… - Georgia.
- Joe.
There's something I've wanted to say to you for so long, and now's the time to say it.
Hey! - Show me the ring! - Hi! Let me see.
Oh my God.
- Way to go, Paul.
- Right? Sorry, you were saying, Joe? Nothing.
It can wait.
Congratulations.
- Thanks.
- That's… Let me see.
Let me see.
Joe, are you OK? You know, why'd you tell me about the stupid sunglasses? - What? The sunglasses? - I just need five.
- Of course.
- Hey, Ginny! Ginny, come here! Guess I don't need to ask how she's doing with all this.
She misses Zion.
Is she the only one? You had to make room for someone new.
Paul's amazing, and Ginny will come around.
Yeah.
Maybe.
Austin isn't speaking.
- To you? - In general.
He's just not speaking.
He did this a few years ago when his dad went to jail.
I guess he's doing it again now.
I feel like a bad mom.
Stop it.
Listen, at least after tomorrow, the election will be done, and you'll have less things on your plate.
Yeah.
- Are you coming to Sing Sing tonight? - Oh, I want to so, so bad.
- Oh, I bet.
- So bad.
Gotta work.
Uh-huh.
But tell Max to break a leg.
OK.
Max, hey! - Why are you avoiding me? - I need to get into character.
Max, stop.
Are you mad at me? What? I love you.
You're my best friend.
Why are you guys being mean for no reason? Places.
Places! You.
Sparkle like a star.
Max, please just tell me what I did.
You had sex with my brother.
Eighteen years and 50 days That's how long my sentence is Got to pay my dues… In the Suffolk County Jail Never have I felt so alone Say goodbye to the world that I know Now I've got time to lose In the Suffolk County Jail Life in Suffolk County Jail Lights out at 7:00 Fistfights at 11:00 It gets a little nutty In the Suffolk County Jail Time for processing.

Should I… Sorry.

- If you want someone to… You had sex with him behind my back and didn't tell me.
What kind of horrible friend are you? How could you do that to me? - How? - Max! Hey, new girl.
Why so glum? I'm Pam.

Please wait.
Please believe me.
I wanted to tell you.
I… I'm really, really sorry.
I love you.
You're my best friend.
I kept this a secret because I love you, and I didn't know what to do.
- Hey, girls.
- Officer Thompson.
I had just moved to town, and then the second time, you had just broken up with Sophie.
It happened twice? First, this place looked very strange Then he crossed my path Now, 18 years and change Doesn't really seem so bad In Suffolk County Jail In Suffolk County Jail Max.
Max! Hallway.
Now.
- Max.
- Ginny, shut up.
- Max, I can expl - I'm serious.
The play.
Yeah! Whoo! Hey, Max and Ginny just walked by.
Come on.
Talk.
Max, I'm… I'm so, so sorry, OK? I've never had a friend like you before, and I didn't wanna screw it up.
No.
Don't give me that poor little new girl bullshit, Ginny.
You are my best friend, and you've been lying to me from the jump? I wanted to tell you.
But I thought it was over with Marcus, and then… and then you were so sad about Sophie, I couldn't.
Yeah.
See, you could.
You say, "Hey, Max.
I'm an asshole.
I wanna tell the truth about how I wasn't a virgin, and I lied to you about that and about sleeping with your brother.
" - Hey.
- OK, guys.
Calm down.
No, Norah.
You do not get to be Switzerland on this! You don't have to yell at me! How could you tell Max about Marcus when you told me to keep quiet? Um… - Wow.
I didn't.
- You knew? And you let me tell you about it.
You acted all surprised and indignant! Oh my God, Abby! Wow! Did you know about this? No.
No, I swear! Max, I didn't want you to get hurt.
That's funny.
That's what everyone who keeps hurting me keeps saying! - I cannot even look at you.
- Max.
Hey.
Ginny cheated on you.
Yep.
She had sex with Marcus.
Is that true? Hunter.
Turns out Ginny's not the person we all thought she was.
She's got secrets.
You know that sexy photo she sent you? You told them about that? Well, turns out she sent it to Marcus, too, right before you sang that song for her.
'Cause that's the kind of person she is.
I… I told you I loved you.
Hunter, I… I feel so much love for you, I do, but I… I also love Marcus.
'Sup? - I was going to the bathroom, so… - We know about you and Ginny.
Ah.
That's all you have to say? You're not gonna deny it? I'm not gonna deny it.
Well, what the ever-loving frick-fest? I mean, seriously? You're just having sex? That's a thing now? Are you dating? Is he your boyfriend? Are you guys in love? No, it's not… We're not together.
It was… It was a mistake.
I need to get out of here.
Hunter.
Hunter.
Hunter, please.
No, I'm better than this.
I was great to you.
You didn't deserve it.
You're throwing all that away for this.
This guy.
Cool.
Good luck with that.
That's on you.
No, you know what? Come on, man.
It was God! OK.
Ow! I have a concussion, asshole.
I'm in the next act.
- OK, Max.
Maxine.
- No.
No.
Don't.
Don't talk to me.
Norah, leave the liars.
You're a bitch.
Ginny.
It was a mistake? I came out here, and you were all fighting.
I thought it was the right thing to say.
W… Wasn't it? Padma was right.
You're only ever gonna hurt me.
I cannot believe you.
- Have you no self-control, ya feral cat? - It was none of your business.
If my friend and my brother are sexting each other, I feel like I deserve to know.
I helped Ginny edit that photo.
God! Why would you do that? My best friend? She wasn't your best friend when it first happened.
She just moved here.
The second time, I'd just had my accident.
No.
No, no, no.
You do not get to blame this on your concussion.
You have no idea how annoying it is to be operating on half a brain.
You always operate on half a brain, so you should be used to it.
God, you're such a piece of shit.
I may be, but Ginny is a better friend than you realize for letting you run around like an entitled brat all the time.
You don't even notice all the shit she's struggling with.
You don't understand boundaries.
You make everything about yourself.
You overstep until people suffocate.
God… Like Sophie.
No wonder Ginny was so afraid to tell you.
Fall in a ditch! Well, I already did that.
- I am going to literally kill you! - Oh yeah, what? Please! - I will put my fist to your face.
- Murder me! Please.
Do it! - Now that you know - Murder me! Enough.
Enough! I have had it with both of you, and I wanna know what is going on right now! Oh, Mom, I don't know boundaries.
- So I can tell you.
- Max.
Don't.
It's the worst betrayal since Jordyn and Kylie.
- Max.
- Marcus and Ginny had sex.
What? Hey! I quit being a mom.
The hours are long, and the pay sucks.
No kidding.
Austin still hasn't said a single word to me.
Oh, not mine.
Mine talk.
They won't shut up.
You OK? I have something hard to share with you.
Mm-hmm.
Apparently, my son has been sleeping with your daughter.
Mm.
You knew.
I caught him climbing through her window a few days ago.
Whoa.
- He did what? - Mm-hmm.
Why didn't you tell me? - Ellen - I'm his mom, Georgia! If my 15-year-old son is climbing through some girl's window, I need to know that! Yeah.
You're a mom! I am your friend! - Yeah.
- OK.
We can't all do this, like, weird, loosey-goosey, cool, free-range parenting thing that you're doing, OK? - Excuse me? - You know what? I have to go.
Ellen, hold on.
No, I'm gonna say something I'm gonna regret, and I don't wanna do that.
I would hate to call you something terrible like a bad mom.
- Ellen! - Bad mom! Wait a minute! You… Wha… Jesus, Mom! Ginny… Mom.
Hold on.
You can't just storm into my room.
I was changing.
Holy boy through the window, Batman.
I think we got our guy.
What? You had sex with Marcus? - How do you know? - Ellen told me.
That was fun.
Jesus.
So what? You and Hunter, I'm guessing that's over.
What do you care? You go through men faster than Taylor Swift.
Oh, good.
I was waiting for this one to be all my fault.
It's not your fault.
It's definitely mine.
What is going on with you? I'm worried, peach.
Wh… Why would you have sex with Marcus? Because I was horny.
OK.
But why all the sneaking around? It's not like you to hurt people that you care about.
You lied to me.
You lied to Max.
You lied to Hunter.
Mm-hmm.
I'm awful.
I'm sick.
I'm a bitch.
I sneak around.
I'm a liar.
Who do you think I learned it from? You broke Dad's heart.
Zion and I both agreed this wasn't gonna work out the way we thought, OK? - It was mutual.
- Oh, right.
Yeah.
Of course you won't take responsibility for making me believe I was gonna get my dad back.
I should be used to it, but how could you do it to Austin? He found the letters, Mom! Don't worry, I'm sure you just forgot to send them, so I made sure to mail them.
You did what? Ginny, did you put our return address on them? He should be able to communicate with his dad.
You have no idea.
Maybe that's because you never tell me anything ever! Because you can't be trusted.
I don't know you! I don't know this person who sneaks around behind their friend's back, behind their boyfriend's back, behind my back! That's exactly where you're wrong.
You know who I am, Mom.
I'm you, remember? I'm tired of these petty games Does everybody stay the same… Lies, and you're rolling the dice What are the chances… I say that I'm fine But I'm out here wondering why I feel so lonely I need somebody To show me That I'm not just an outsider Just an outsider Ms.
Miller.
What's up? Did you have a problem with the homework? What am I looking at? What do you think your problem with me is? I don't have any kind of problem with you, Ms.
Miller.
I have one of the highest grades in the class, yet you consistently single me out.
Ms.
Miller, I You're a racist, targeting me, thinking I'm the only student who has a problem with the N-word.
This is entirely inappropriate.
You're being too aggressive.
I am not a racist.
I voted for Obama.
Twice.
You have had a vendetta against me since you got here.
I don't like you.
You're right about that, but you are a racist, and even if you don't believe it, I'm sure the school board might.
That is a very ugly, ugly accusation to play around with.
It is.
Very ugly.
Luckily, there's another way this can go.
You're looking at a glowing college recommendation letter that you wrote for me.
All you have to do is sign.
You're blackmailing me? I'm taking control.
It's important for sophomores to get recommendation requests.
I don't wanna inundate my teachers my junior year.
Thanks so much, darlin'.
There you go.
Hey, Austin.
Uh… I know you're not talking right now, little man, but, um… I know you found the letters, and I'm really sorry.
This is really hard, but… …uh… your dad, he's um… He's not He's not really a wizard, is he? Georgia! Austin! Hi, Ms.
Jakob.
Hi.
How is Austin feeling? Fine.
Austin's fine.
Did he catch that nasty bug going around? Poor guy.
We missed him all week.
Hmm.
I see.
Well, Austin is feeling loads better now, ain't ya? All right.
You go on in.
I'm just gonna stand right here and watch you walk to that door.
I know the transition's been hard.
Um… I've noticed some behaviors of Austin's that I'd love to schedule a time with you to discuss further.
Yeah, of course.
Absolutely.
OK.
OK, great.
Thank you.
Georgia.
Cynthia! How are you? This election can really take its toll on one's mental health.
Oh, and don't forget to vote.
I hate that woman.
What? Oh, come on.
Don't tell me you believe her.
She embezzled funds.
- We're not doubting you.
- We're worried about you.
With everything you have going on at home… I'm not crazy! Don't even look at her.
Indifference is the best revenge.
Feeling like I'm always stuck in my head Do I have trembling hands? Didn't want to pick up the phone Afraid that I might Say something wrong Don't want to keep talking on And on and on and on I've got my head in the clouds So out of the moment Thinking about what to say… It's fine.
Just breathe.
Just breathe.
It's good.
- Guys, this is Ginny.
- H… Hi.
This is Wes, Stacy, Jackie.
You dance.
You can do a split, right? Can you do one for a TikTok I'm trying to make? - No! - Do it.
It'll be fun.
- Don't encourage her.
- It'll be fun.
No! - Anyone else freaking out? - You freak about everything.
OK, you can't be one to talk because you're brilliant, all right, at every activity on the face of the planet.
I don't like you now because I'm drowning in college applications.
I got BC, Howard, Morehouse, Syracuse, American, Michigan.
- Michigan? - What's wrong with Michigan? You do not understand.
You can go anywhere in the world, and you're picking cold-as-shit Michigan.
I applied to University of Hawaii.
Hawaii? Please… - Here we go.
- No.
I have a philosophy.
You pick where you wanna vacation, and just live there.
Don't look at me like that.
OK, I'm brilliant.
You're dumb.
OK, Stacy.
Know what? Stop shitting on my philosophy! Back me up, new girl.
Where are you applying? Oh, I'm a sophomore, so… My dad wants me to go to Howard to pledge Sigma.
He'd be like, "Hey, I'm your brother and your father.
" And my mom, she wants me to go to BC so I can come home for dinner.
I would do what Nicole says.
That woman scares the hell out of me.
Yeah, she's scary.
That's why I'm going to Michigan.
I don't want to be ordinary… Hey, Jesse, right? Hey.
How are you? Listen, Ginny, I need to talk to you.
Is everything OK? Did my mom send you? Yeah.
I need to talk to you about Mary Atkins.
Uh… Would you? I'm gonna be candid with you 'cause I don't think that many people are.
OK.
I'm a private investigator.
Kenny's first wife hired me to look into your mom and the will, and in doing that, I found out some other stuff.
I think your mom is dangerous.
Dangerous? I think she murdered Kenny Drexel.
- What? - Think about it for a second.
Are you telling me you think your mom isn't capable of something like that? Of course she's not.
OK.
I learned recently that you and your mother used to live in New Orleans when you were a baby.
I already knew that.
And that she ran an illegal gambling ring and was arrested and temporarily lost custody of you.
OK.
Look.
This here is wolfsbane.
It's extremely poisonous, and it causes heart attacks.
Your mom owns this plant.
That look familiar? Why would your mother own this plant? Why would Kenny Drexel, a man in peak physical condition, randomly have a heart attack? Why would his body go missing just as I was about to have it exhumed for further testing? I'm worried about you, all right? I'm worried about Austin.
I don't want kids living under the roof of someone capable of murder.
If your mom did this, if she killed someone, do what's right, Ginny.
You are not your mother.
Let me protect you.
Is there anything, anything at all, that you wanna tell me? No.
I'm sorry, but you're mistaken.
My mom loved Kenny, and she would never hurt anyone.
I wanna thank you For you makin' life so tough for me And I want to thank… Mom? For wakin' me up, never letting me sleep And I wanna… Is anyone home? Ginny.
…so hard for me, and I want to… How do I look? I wanna thank you… I'm not ignoring our conversation from yesterday, but I wanna put it aside just for tonight.
Tonight, we're a family.
A family about to win a mayoral election.
Imagine me saying that a year ago, huh? It's unbelievable.
It's all working out.
Things are good.
It's all gonna be OK.
I know it.
Are we good? Can I count on you and Austin to come tonight? - The results are in at nine.
- We'll be there.

- Hey.
- Hey.
I didn't mean it was a mistake.
- I'm sorry.
I… - It's all right.
I shouldn't have said that.
I… I don't think it was a mistake.
It's OK.
I forgive you.
OK.
Good.
I do love you.
Ginny? Marcus.
It's fine.
OK? We're all good.
Let's just talk about this later.
OK.
You seem kinda off.
I don't want you to… hurt yourself.
I can stay here if you like.
I'm fine, but I do have to get to city hall, so… They painted the hills the day… Yeah.
Yeah, OK.
Um… Everybody talking in their head… I'll see you later.
Well, it was a state of disarray Chaos control, delay of faith And we lose again… Come on.
OK, got it? We were on fire They watched us as we burned… - Torch it.
- We were on fire Will we ever learn… We were on fire They watched us as we burned We were on fire Will we ever learn? We were on Fire We were on Fire They watched us… Come here.
Austin, you understand, right? Mom isn't who she says she is, and I need to get out of here.
Are you sure you wanna come with me? I need to hear you say it.
I wanna come.
It's hard to find another 'Cause some things you can't undo And words are always… Win or lose, I appreciate you coming tonight.
Thank you so much.
Thank you so much for your support.
It really means a lot.
Thank you.
Thank you.
- Hey.
- Hey! You haven't seen Ginny and Austin around, have you? No.
Do you need help looking for them or… No.
They'll be here.
They wouldn't miss it.
Here we go.
Folks, the results are in.
It is my honor and privilege to introduce to you our newly re-elected mayor, Paul Randolph! Whoo! Whoo! Hey, Zach.
Hey, Mom.
How's Dad doing? Thank you! Thank you all very much! Wellsbury means the world to me.
And throughout this entire campaign, I heard your voices loud and clear, and I agree with you.
Wellsbury is an amazing place, but there is always room to make improvements, and that is what I am planning to do over these next two years.
I want Wellsbury to be a place that fosters forward thinking and great ideas.
I challenge us to do… Congratulations.
Don't forget to tell Paul.
You got more to celebrate, don't you? You know, you're right.
Everything worked out exactly how I wanted.
It's almost like Kenny's here with us right now, just looking down on me.
What'd you do with that body, Georgia? Hmm? I know you're responsible for digging it up.
Thank you.
I could not have done it without you! Pretty, aren't they? I love fireworks.
I find it takes something that big and bright to really… scatter the ashes of the past.
Sometimes, it does feel like Ginny's turning into me, and it scares me.
But there's a big difference.
- Congratulations.
- Thank you.
Life started me out way behind everyone else.
Hey, what's up? I told you about the gambling charges when I ran Georgia Warren, but I found something else that's interesting.
Yeah? What, another arrest? No, a marriage license.
Georgia Warren became Georgia Greene.
Kenny wasn't her first husband.
She's been married before to an Anthony Greene.
He's a missing person.
He disappeared a few weeks after they were married.
'Cause there's blood in the water And it's not coming off of us… The deeper we get in The darker the color Blood in the water… I had to spend every day doing whatever it took to catch up, and look where I've gotten us.
I've done more than protect Ginny from that life.
I've put her miles in front of it.
All these bad intentions… She'll never have to fall through the cracks like I did.
She'll never have to know the fear and desperation that I did.
And now her road ahead is all clear.
…than never at all… Georgia's a survivor.
She's had to be.
But she's right.
Knowing some things about a person… you can't come back from that.
I know what I have to do.
I have to do what she's always taught me.
I have to keep running.
Now it's all in the covers Blood in the water 'Cause there's blood in the water
