A lot of what happened in this episode felt like it was treading on old ground, but it certainly helps lead into the finale for Season 2. 

We recap the Netflix series Ginny and Georgia Season 2 Episode 9, “Kill Gil,” which will contain major spoilers. 

Season 2 Episode 9 runs over a story we saw in Episode 8, but from a different perspective. We find out what caused the gunshot and why Ginny (Antonia Gentry) knew Marcus (Felix Mallard) was going to break up with her. 

Ginny and Georgia Season 2 Episode 9 Recap

Season 2 Episode 9 opens with Ginny narrating, telling viewers that her mother, Georgia, always told them to “stay on guard.” We then hear a gunshot in their home, but the situation is unclear. 

Episode 9 then moves to Three Days Earlier. Ginny is late for work and has to rush to work and leave Marcus in bed. Meanwhile, Georgia and Paul are excited about the big wedding day. And then, Georgia has a tense conversation with Gil. Georgia implies that Gil is a violent man. A flashback shows a younger Georgia who lives with Gil. Georgia seems apprehensive around Gil. 

Back to the story, Private Investigator Gabriel confronts Georgia. Georgia realizes that Gabriel has nothing on her and tells him she’s won before walking away. 

Georgia heads to Cynthia’s to pick up Austin, but Gil has already picked him up. She’s furious that Gil is not even communicating with her and is seemingly doing what he wants. 

Later on, Georgia asks Ginny to “give her away” at the altar. Ginny accepts. Georgia confesses accidentally overdosing her first husband. She tells Ginny that’s the last “skeleton in the closet.” She wants to be honest with Georgia after their therapy together. Ginny is clearly overwhelmed with honesty.

Ginny goes over to Marcus’s house, and she overhears Marcus telling Maxine that he’s not sure if he wants to be anyone. This is why she makes the strong assumption that Marcus is going to break up with her. She missed the part where Marcus truthfully states that it’s not Ginny that’s the issue and that he loves her. 

After the town meeting, Gil messages Georgia telling her that they need to talk. He explains that a Private Investigator has asked about her. Georgia meets Gil and asks him what he wants, knowing that he’s going to threaten her with Gabriel. Gil antagonizes her, stating she’s only marrying Paul, so she feels protected. He intends to keep blackmailing her. Gil knows about Paul’s finances and wants a part of it. Georgia knows she cannot run from this situation. Georgia returns home and spends time with Ginny. They both express how they’ve had a bad day. 

The next day, Gil turns up at the school to get Austin and threatens Georgia, telling her not to stop him from seeing his son. Luckily Cynthia turns up, which dies down the situation. 

Meanwhile, Private Investigator Gabriel talks to Ginny about Georgia’s first husband, Anthony Green. Ginny tells him that Anthony is a missing person. Gabriel asks Ginny if she can protect her mother from everyone else. He claims he’s leaving and that he’s worried about what she’s going to do next. 

Georgia drinks with Cynthia. Cynthia tells Georgia that she cheated on her dying husband with Joe. Georgia is in shock. Cynthia feels guilty, and it’s killing her that her son Zach is seeing her father like this. Cynthia expresses that she wants it to be over. And then, Cynthia reveals that she blocked Gil’s apartment application. Georgia is thankful for her friend’s help. 

Did Georgia suffocate Cynthia’s husband to death?

While Cynthia looks for Zach, Georgia heads into the room where Cynthia’s husband is. She sees him lying there in a coma. She has no idea that Austin is watching, hiding in the closet. Georgia tells Cynthia’s husband that Cynthia is strong and she’s going to look after her. Georgia suffocates the man, and he flatlines. She then calls for Cynthia. 

And then we see the break-up between Marcus and Ginny again. Ginny walks away, sobbing. She’s lost someone she loves but doesn’t understand why. She wants Marcus to follow her, but he doesn’t. 

Does Georgia have feelings for Joe?

Georgia heads home, and Joe heads over to give her the sunglasses back that represent a long past they have. Georgia asks Joe why he slept with Cynthia. She’s annoyed that he didn’t tell her. They talk about the sunglasses and end up arguing. Joe is flabbergasted and tells her he has no idea why she kept the sunglasses. His feelings are spilling out. Georgia insists they are friends, but Joe asks her if she has feelings for him. Georgia reminds Joe that she’s getting married. Joe wants to know if he’s crazy and if it’s all in his head. Joe leaves, leaving their story unresolved. 

It seems clear that Georgia has feelings for Joe too.

Who gets shot in Ginny and Georgia Season 2?

Ginny returns home sobbing and tells her mother that Marcus broke up with her. She comforts her. Austin is home too, and he’s clearly traumatized by what he saw his mother do. 

Georgia heads downstairs, thinking Paul has returned, but it’s Gil. He attacks Georgia. Georgia tries to pick up a knife, but he continues to hurt her. Austin then points the gun (the one hidden in the house) at his father, Gil, and shoots him in the arm. Georgia grabs the gun and points it at Gil. She tells Gil to stay where he is and asks his children to help clean the situation up before Paul gets home. 

Georgia stitches up Gil’s wounded arm. Paul comes home to Georgia and her children all smiling. He sees a drawing on the wall (the one Austin did to cover up the damage caused). 

After Georgia speaks to Paul, she checks in with her children. Ginny asks why she never told them about Gil, but Georgia explains how she was young and dumb and had no options. Austin and Ginny do not want to see Gil again. A flashback shows a younger Georgia looking at a positive pregnancy test. Gil apologizes for hurting her, but Georgia tells him she’s pregnant. Gil is over the moon. He wants to be a father. 

Ginny and Georgia Season 2 Episode 9 ending

Georgia narrates how she’s survived this long by staying ahead. She rings the wedding venue and cancels the wedding. She then heads to bed and nestles into Paul’s arms.

Season 2 Episode 9 ends with Nick visiting Gabriel. Nick tells him that Cynthia’s husband died and that Georgia told him he died peacefully. Gabriel’s ears perked up. He suspects Georgia killed him. When Nick leaves, Gabriel rings the police to report a suspected murder. 

A lot of what happened in this episode felt like it was treading on old ground, but it certainly helps lead into the finale for Season 2.
