Ginny & Georgia, Season 2 Recap


“It’s you and me against the world Peach,” and boy did Ginny and Georgia go through a roller coaster in the latest season that premiered on Netflix January 5th. 

 With all truth, season two didn’t knock my socks off like season one did. Starting off where they left us in season one, season two enters us with the opening scene of Ginny running away with little brother Austin. Running away to Ginny’s dad, Zion (Georgia’s first love), this conflict continues for the next four episodes. In my own personal opinion as the best critic in the world, this entire season felt as though they never got to the point. They continued the old conflict for too long and didn’t have any solutions. Now I’m not saying you have to have a solution to all the problems, but make a better one if you’re really trying to keep us engaged with what is happening. 

Brought to the surface, mental health has been very present in a lot of newer releases on Netflix. (TW DISCUSSING SELF HARM), Ginny has been battling issues alone in secret, but finally it became too overwhelming. In season one, it was revealed that Ginny burned herself when conflict rose with her friends, boyfriend, and most of all, her mother.  I think they did a good job of showing how self harm is an ongoing conflict for many different people. The only thing that I would change is the unrealistic deposition of it. 

All in all, I would rate this season of Ginny & Georgia a 7.5/10. The character development was strong for some, but lacked in many. I loved the girl power that was expressed while still taking into consideration their faults. I will be watching season three when it comes out, not because I want to, but because I’ve already made it this far.
