Season 2 relies on emotional endings so far, but it doesn’t quite make up for a clunky chapter for Episode 4.

We recap the Netflix series Ginny and Georgia Season 2 Episode 4, “Happy My Birthday to You,” which will contain major spoilers. 

There’s a whole lot going on in Season 2 Episode 4 of Ginny and Georgia. It feels like they are trying to squeeze in as many plot points as possible, and you can feel that in this chapter. Regardless, there’s plenty of meat in the story to chew on as Georgia (Brianne Howey) and Paul (Scott Porter) tries to make a “house a home,” which includes the weight of parental responsibilities.

Ginny and Georgia Season 2 Episode 4 Recap

Season 2 Episode 4 opens up with Ginny narrating that her mother is not a “normal mom.” And then Georgia narrates how the rules were not made for them, so why follow them? As this narration plays out, Georgia sees Marcus sneak into their house. 

Knowing she’s on her period, Ginny decides to give Marcus a blow job. It’s her first time, and Marcus doesn’t think it feels good. Georgia then opens the door, and Marcus hides. She asks Ginny to go to CVS to get her birth control. When Ginny leaves, Georgia calls Marcus out of the closet where he was hiding. 

Marcus leaves the closet, and Georgia interrogates him. Marcus claims he loves Ginny. Georgia tells Marcus that Ginny is special and that one day, she’s going to leave them all. Georgia asks Marcus not to hold her back “when the time comes.” Marcus promises her. Georgia then lands the comedy and tells him that if he gets her pregnant, she’ll kill her.

At this point, Ginny walks back in and sees that her mother set them both up. Once Marcus leaves, Georgia tells Ginny that Marcus is in love with her. Ginny wants sex advice, specifically around blowjobs. With things seemingly feeling normal, Georgia checks in that Ginny is okay with her. Ginny confirms she’s fine with their relationship. 

But it’s not all smooth sailing in the Miller household; Paul starts questioning Georgia’s parenting and wants a different approach between them. Paul clearly wants to be involved in decision-making more now that he’s the “man of the house.”

At school, Maxine is excited because it’s her birthday. Abby put up a birthday sign for her, but Maxine rips it down. And then, Sophie wishes Maxine a happy birthday. Maxine invites Sophie to her birthday party. 

Joe walks into work with a bruised eye, and Ginny and Padma ask him about it, but he deflects. And then, Georgia asks him, and once again, Joe deflects. Georgia then asks Joe to help cater a party she’s doing for the Neighbourhood Club. 

Pressing her parenting ability, Paul asks Georgia why she wouldn’t take the recommendations from the teacher regarding Austin. Georgia doesn’t want labels on her child and gets irritated by explaining they are not his children. Paul and Georgia start arguing about responsibilities. Afterward, Georgia asks her daughter Ginny if she’ll be her Maid of Honour at her wedding. Of course, Ginny accepts.

It’s therapy time for Ginny, and the conversation is about her mother. Ginny asks the therapist if “who you are is predetermined.” The therapist tells Ginny that she needs to be honest about how she’s feeling, or she will not get better. 

To ease tensions with the family, Georgia launches a Living Room Dance Party. Ginny is resistant at first, but she joins in with Georgia, Austin, and Paul. Ginny says she will head out, and Paul asks about a curfew. Ginny says she will return at a “reasonable hour.” Georgia warns Ellen that Ginny is heading over. Ellen walks into Marcus’s room as Marcus was hooking up with Ginny and sits in between them. Parents working together!

Maxine’s 16th birthday party is nearly at risk of being canceled due to a basement being flooded. Maxine loses her cool and finally has a heated conversation with Ginny. Ginny tells Maxine that she wants an apology because she hurt her. Ginny slips up that she loves Marcus, which softens Maxine’s tone. Maxine finally apologizes, and Georgia offers her house as a location for her party. 

Paul and Georgia decide to have a meal at Joe’s restaurant to celebrate Paul moving in. Paul senses that Joe has a crush on Georgia, which she quickly dismisses. And then, Georgia senses Ginny has fooled her (she was meant to be at Zion’s with Austin). 

Ginny and Georgia Season 2 Episode 4 ending

At the party, Hunter and Ginny apologize to each other for how they behaved. Hunter confesses that he loved Ginny. He feels it was his first love. Ginny tells Hunter that she loved him too, but implies as a friend. Hunter tells Ginny that she should make sure that Marcus is good to her. 

Marcus tells Ginny that she wants to be in a relationship. It’s a nice moment between them before Ginny practices her b*****b skills. But then, the parents show up and break up the party. 

Paul tells Ginny that they expect more from her. Paul is trying to play the stepfather’s role. Georgia is proud that her daughter threw a rager and thinks it’s a sign that she hasn’t screwed up too badly.

Meanwhile, Ginny lays in bed, pondering why her mother murdered for her. She’s struggling to sleep thinking about it. She feels there is blood on her hands. Feeling she’s on the edge, she rings her therapist before she self-harms herself. She admits she’s not okay. 

Season 2 relies on emotional endings so far, but it doesn’t quite make up for a clunky chapter for Episode 4.
