The Netflix series Ginny & Georgia delves into the complex relationship between its titular mother-daughter duo who have been everything from best friends to sworn enemies at certain points in the series.

Flashbacks feature young Georgia
Since the first season of Ginny & Georgia, the series has told its story through two timelines, one in the present day and the other set several years in the past through a series of flashbacks.
These scenes extensively explored the events that made Georgia the sensible woman she is today, delving into her relationships with her family and former love interests.
After season 1 gave viewers a glimpse of Ginny’s father, Zion, and Georgia’s first husband, Anthony Green – whom she accidentally killed years before murdering her ex-husband Kenny, season 2 has emphasized his relationship with Austin’s father, Gil Timmins, which began as a nice, mild-mannered young man before a more sinister and controlling side emerged.
