Also @netflix afterwards Miss Americana That outfit doesn’t look cute on you. Have a nice women’s history month, I think.”

Following the backlash, Antonia posted a lengthy message on Instagram alluding to the TSwift controversy. Part of Antonia’s message read, “I fell in love with the role of Ginny Miller because she is a character who dares to make mistakes, a character who tries her best to seamlessly connect with the world around her merge, but people keep saying no. She is one character among many on the show that draws us all in. It shows us our own prejudices, prejudices and injustices.

She continued, “She loves, she lies and she stands up for what she believes in — even though she may not have all of her facts straight. She makes mistakes — morally, mentally, physically, emotionally — and not just within herself, but in the broken world she lives in.”

The official synopsis for Season 2 reads: “How do you live with the knowledge that your mother is a murderer? Ginny needs to find out. Burdened with the new understanding that Kenny – her stepfather – did not die of natural causes, Ginny must now confront the fact that Georgia not only killed, but killed to protect Ginny. Georgia, on the other hand, would prefer to leave the past in the past, after all she has a wedding to plan! But the funny thing about Georgia’s past is that it never stays buried for long…”

In an exclusive video, published exclusively on Tudum, Georgia goes into her house and finds Ginny and Austin gone, as well as the remains of the wolfsbane that Ginny burned. Georgia throws a poker and bursts into tears.

“The missing piece of the puzzle suddenly slides into place and I see it. I see you. Who she really is,” says Ginny.

“We wanted to pick up the story right where we left off,” series creator and executive producer Sarah Lampert told Tudum. “We left it at such a juicy cliffhanger.” She added, “We spent all of season 1 breaking down these characters and putting them in specific places. So we wanted to honor that by picking up Season 2 just two weeks later. We went right back to where we all left emotionally at the end of season one.”

“I don’t know if you notice, but as she packs her bag, she grabs the book that Zion is giving her, and if you’ve been paying attention when Zion arrives and gives her the book, you know he’s got an address has stated . He has this secret coded message in it and she finds out it’s his address to his apartment in Boston. So I think it’s pretty reasonable to assume that Ginny might be on her way to Zion,” Antonia said TVLine.

The finale also teased the arrival of Austin’s father, Gil. Ginny sent Austin’s letter to his dad, which Georgia was clearly freaking out about. “Did you write our return address?” Georgia asked Ginny, startled.

Georgia and Mayor Paul got engaged at the end of the season, and Scott recounted it HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY that he’s looking forward to learning more of Paul’s backstory. “He went to Brown. He has an Ivy League education, and then gave it all up to travel overseas, backpacking, teaching English, and getting a feel for the world that’s very different from a lot of people trying to to find their way into politics. But then, upon his return to the States, he magically did so. What drives such a person? He is multifaceted, but still very direct and focused. So what made him like this? I’m really excited to learn more about his family and origins,” he said.

Ginny’s group of friends called MANG exploded after it was revealed that Ginny had slept with Marcus. Ginny’s relationship with Hunter ended while the situation with Marcus remained fluid at the end of Season 1. “I think Ginny’s relationship with Marcus and Hunter is a little mirror of Georgia’s relationship with Zion and Paul. I think ultimately they make different decisions,” Sarah said HollywoodLife in an EXCLUSIVE post-season interview.
