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

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

Knowing that she is on her period, Ginny decides to give Marcus a blowjob. It’s his first time, and Marcus doesn’t think it feels good. Georgia then opens the door and Marcus hides.

Marcus leaves the closet and Georgia questions him. Marcus claims he loves Ginny. Georgia tells Marcus that Ginny is special and that one day she will leave them all.
