01x02 - It's A Face Not A Mask

Post by bunniefuu »



Ginny, wake up!

- What, Mom?
- Is there a hair?

What time is it?

I can sorta feel it
if I do this, but I can't see it.

- It's 5:00 a.m., Mom.
- Come on.

Get the tweezers away from my eye,
you psycho!

- Ginny, I'm serious! Is there a hair?
- Ugh! Jesus, hang on!

Come on. Hurry!

- No, there's n...
- Oh.


- What?
- Yeah, there's a hair.

Wow, it's really long.

Pluck it! It's my first day.
I can't show up all Chewbacca!

Is this about Paul?

No. It's about the fact that aging
is a horrible, inevitable death sentence

where your body betrays you slowly
till you die. Pluck it.

If I could skin you and wear
your prepubescent face, I would.

Stop talking, Chewbacca.

Got it.

Oh, this really bums me out.

My mom knows she's beautiful.

She guards her beauty like someone's
trying to break in and steal it.

For a woman, life is a battle.

And beauty is a g*dd*mn machine g*n.

I never go anywhere without my face on.

If they can see where your makeup ends
and your face begins,

you've done it wrong.

It's a face, not a mask.

You have to blend.

I know about masks.

My mask never comes off.

Moving around all the time,

I'm too white for the black kids
and not white enough for the white kids.

I've never really had friends.

OK, what do we think? Kylie?

Mm. Trixie Mattel.

Girl, you gotta blend!

OK, help me 'cause auditions
for Wellsbury's original production

of Sing-Sing:
A Musical of Love Behind Bars

is today, and I have
to b*at out Riley Nichols for the lead.

OK, my dude, you are putting
so many toxic chemicals on your face.

I love toxic chemicals.
Give me all the toxic chemicals.

I've accepted that everything
that sparks joy is cancerous,

and I love string cheese.
I'm embracing death.


- There you go.
- Oh!

- Now I have cheekbones!
- I really am very good.

Ginny, want Norah to do your contour?
She's, like, crazy good at it.

- Um…
- I don't have the right color.

No. That's definitely too light.

I'm like if Casper and Snow White
had a baby.

It doesn't matter.
I don't really wear makeup.

Color blends are so sexy.

Blending has never been
my specialty.

- So, that was Sophie Sanchez.
- She's a senior.

She's done cocaine,
and she's got the best ass in school.

She hangs out in blue
with the popular seniors,

then there's deaf kid yellow.
Hi! How's your summer?

Good, thank you.

Cool. My dad's deaf, and my mom runs EDCO,
it's the district deaf program.

Yes, Wellsbury has many programs.

We've got, like, springboard,
auto, metco, culinary, BB…

- My last school just had school.
- Light green is for losers.

Abby, be nice.

That's ABC Hallway.

It's like a jock hallway,
but it also just smells a lot like Axe.

And red is for delinquents
and stoners and my brother.

And here, we have berry tree.

- For the h*m*!
- Cool h*m*.

- Cool.
- We're not cool.

Cool people say they're not cool,
so we're very cool.

Hey, MAN!

Oh, people call us MAN, Maxine, Abby,
Norah, because we're inseparable.

Samantha has been trying
to weasel her way in for years,

but she is the definition of second-tier.

Guys! With Ginny, we can be GMAN.

- Come here for a second.
- What are you doing?

- I'm Samantha.
- I'm Ginny.

They can be really cliquey.

Why are you messing with MAN?

- What? I like Ginny.
- OK. Well, I mean, she's fine, I guess.

- She and Hunter would be cute together.
- I love love.

Oh my God. You are so transparent.
You just want a girlfriend.

Why don't you just date Rachel? She's gay.

That doesn't mean
I wanna hook up with her.

She puts the "yike" in "d*ke."

- Hi, Rachel!
- You're the worst lesbian.

Ginny, what are you?
You're so, like, exotic looking.

- ♪ I'm giving up with the make-belief… ♪
- Catch ya later, kid.

- Uh… Sorry.
- ♪ No one here's being fooled ♪

♪ Back to the days
When I was your thief… ♪

Hey, I'm Bracia. You're new, right?

Uh. Hi. Yes, I'm Ginny.

If you're down, I'm field hockey captain.
We don't do cuts.

Oh, that's really nice,
but I'm really bad at sports.

Go, team! b*at the opponent!
That's all I got.

Well, I also do leadership. It's basically
just teaching kids that date r*pe is bad.

Our first meeting is Thursday.

You should think about it.

OK. Still, if you ever wanted, you could
come hang with me and my friends.

Yeah, OK. Thanks.

It's pretty much your typical office.

We use Slack, submit your expense reports
to AP, weekend events count as OT,

school board meetings are once a month,
and passwords are in the C drive.

Thanks so much, darlin'.

I'm not your key demographic.

All right, gather around, everybody!
Morning check-in. Georgia, hi!


Um, Nick, bring us up to speed.

Mm-hmm. Hmm.

Yes. OK, of course. Uh…

So, uh, as you know, city council vote
passed last month for RMDs in Wellsbury.

It barely passed, but it did pass.

Uh, Recreational Marijuana Dispensaries.

Many mothers were…


Vehemently opposed. Uh…
But Grey Gardens, uh…

Sorry, Grey… That's an amazing movie.

Green Gardens, the approved dispensary,
was set to go for 87 King Street...

Wellsbury stands to make
an enormous profit off of this.

Newton made over 600,000 in tax revenue
after their vote passed.

With that kind of money,
we can renovate the library...

But they were just denied
by the City Planning Office.

What? Why?
It took seven months to get Grey Gardens…

Green Gardens.

…approved, Nick.

What happened?

I let you down.

It's a part of the platform
for my re-election campaign.

That's it for today.
Grab your pop quiz on the way out.

I was very disappointed.

AP English is supposed
to separate you from the herd.

There was only one perfect score
in the entire class.

Hunter Chen is the one to b*at.

Riley Nichols, annoyingly talented.

She posted a YouTube cover
of an Adele song

and h*t, like, 90% of the notes.

She's probably gonna get
the lead in Sing-Sing.

By the way,
we're hanging at Brodie's tonight.

Hunter's probably gonna be there.


Something is not right.

87 King was good to go.

It's a historic building, so I made sure
we jumped through all the necessary hoops.

Anything I can help with?

Yes, it's one o'clock now.
You can go pick up lunch. Thank you.

I'm talking about Green Gardens.
What makes the building historic?

The whole damn town's historic.
There's not a block

where a founding father didn't smoke,
drink, or contract chlamydia.

They're saying the issue is the AC.

City Planning won't approve
new electrical, which is a huge problem

because the dispensary needs
climate control in order to operate.

We're screwed.

Anyone I can talk to?

Paul told me
you never completed high school.

Aw! Did you know I went to Cornell
to get a poli-sci degree to land this job?

And you have, what?
A candy cane and a smile?

I know what you're doing,
and it's not gonna work.

Paul dates women
who smell like persimmons and pilgrims,

and you are out of your depth.



One, two, three.

Listen to me!

Thank you.

All right.

As everyone knows, tomorrow is…

Star of the Week!

Because we have a new student,

I think it'd be great
if we let Austin be this week's star.

Wait, it's my week!

I'm the star!

I think it's important
that we get to know Austin.

I don't wanna know him. He's weird.

Zach, do you need to spend some time
in the Reflection Corner?

But I was bringing my new drone!

What's Star of the Week?

Uh, Zach,

do you wanna explain to Austin
what Star of the Week is?

It's where you bring something awesome
that no one else has yet.


It's when you get to bring in
something from the outside

that represents who you are on the inside.

Can you do that for tomorrow, Austin?

Ginny, are we weird?

A kid said I was weird.

Hey, you're wonderful.

Wellsbury is weird.

I'll be right back.

Have a nice day.

Um… a Plan B pill, please.

Do you have a coupon?

A coupon?


Wouldn't that level of preparation
make this Plan A?

No, I don't have a coupon.

Usually, the boyfriend buys it.

I'm sorry.

Do you have an opinion on this?
I had sex, and now I'm being responsible.

Your only job is to hand me this box
and to tell me to have a nice g*dd*mn day.

Have a nice day.

Coming out of the hairpin turn,
it's Martinez ahead by two lengths…

I can't wait to hear about your first day
with yummy Paul.


Who do we have to k*ll?

Clint, this is…


Good to see you again.

You've never met her.
She just moved in across the street.

He says nice to meet you.

How are you liking Wellsbury?

Are you liking Wellsbury?

Like a cat on a marble floor.

Like a cat…

on a marble…

She feels awkward.


Oh, I'm so sorry.
I can't imagine what you're going through.

Yes, Kenny.

Every day is a struggle.

Hey, Georgia. You look amazing
as per ushe. See y'all later.

No, you don't. C minus
doesn't get you out on a weeknight.

Mom, this is for AP English.

Wellsbury Theater's
showing Romeo and Juliet,

but not the sexy one
where Claire Danes is all soaking wet

on a balcony, wearing white,
not that I'm complaining.

Clothes kinda hold Claire back.

But seriously, this is the boring one
with no g*n and no cars.

We're going for extra credit.

Money, please.

- Thanks, Dad.
- Max!

Could you give this to Ginny?

For the movie.


I understand half of what she says.

Oh. Hey, kid!

- Whatcha doin'?
- I'm the Star of the Week.

Uh… saucy!


Let's go! I told our moms
we were going to the movies!



- "Can cause nausea and period changes."
- Dimitri's two minutes away!

Oh wait. No, he's on Bell Street.

C'mon, Dimitri. That's a cul-de-sac.
Get your head outta your ass!

I'm at the middle school today.
This little boy lets one rip in class.

Everybody starts laughing, and he says,
"Why is everybody laughing?"

And I have to explain to this little
deaf boy that you can hear farts.

He had no idea!

- They're not going to the movies.
- What?

- Where are they going?
- Not sure.

But a girl doesn't wear heels and lashes
to sit in a dark theater with her friend.

Oh my God. I got old
and forgot what youth feels like.

Where are you going?

I don't know.
Why would Maxine lie to me like that?

I expect that kinda crap from Marcus
but not from her.

- Hey!
- I'm a bad mom.

Hey! You're a good mom!

They're bad kids.
Does Max have an Instagram?


This account's for adults.

- What?
- Want me to find the real one?

You may not like it.

Find the b*tch.


All you need is lots of photos,
a sunset, sprinkles, sneakers.

Vivien Leigh?

Gone With The Wind
is one of my favorite movies.

Now we just do a deep dive
on her friends' feed

to find a tagged photo,

and we got it.

And now what?

Now we wait.

What do you know
about the dispensary opening in town?

Oh, that was a total shitshow.

I have never seen Cynthia
lose a fight before.

It was not pretty.

- Cynthia?
- Yeah.

She threw a total hissy fit. She thinks
that if Wellsbury gets a dispensary,

that our kids'll turn into stoners.

♪ High, high, high, high ♪

♪ Yeah… ♪

OK, we have two hours.
I told our moms we were at the movies.

Wearing that?
My mom knows we're not at the movies.

- Hey!
- Max!

- Oh my goodness!
- You're so beautiful!

Oh my God, oh my God!
Gross. Don't look at her.

She's gonna think
that we want her to sit with us.

Oh my God. So embarrassing.
It's actually so embarrassing.

Guys, avoid eye contact.

OK, we're kidding.
That's a joke that we do.

- Oh my God.
- Uh… I've never smoked before.

Really, huh?

You sound interesting.

OK, you ignore Press

because he's a literal sociopath,
and only smoke if you want to.


Peer pressure. Do it!


Uh, put your lips inside. Not outside.

You wanna inhale, then hold it in.

But… be careful.

Pootie Tang hits really hard.

I made it myself
in Pottery Camp Manitou last summer.

- Yes! Yes!
- Hey! Yeah, girl.

Nice start.


does anyone know Vivien Leigh?

She just requested to follow me.

I think she, like,
dated Jimmy Ashinski or something.

- Yo.
- Oh.

You want some Chardonnay?

- We're in.
- Here it is. Max's secret life.

What the…

That's our summer house in Maine!

What the…

Oh, she is so d*ad.

Let's see where they really are.

What the…

She is so grounded.

- Oh. Oh, I don't wanna…
- Mm.

So, Ginny,
I hear you had a date with Hunter.

Just to be perfectly transparent,

Hunter and I dated
for all of eighth grade.

But you totally have my blessing.

Oh yeah,
they were actually really serious.

- They took each others' virginities.
- Abby!

But yeah, we did.

He made this picnic in a field.

It was the perfect first time.

Aww! Isn't Hunter the sweetest?

Hunter has the second biggest d*ck
of all our friends.

We measured this summer.

Brodie's got the biggest.
Probably why he's so dumb.


Big d*ck dumb.

Get the b*lls in my mouth!
Come on.

Do it!

Samantha, I have a feeling
that Hunter's still in love with you.

Oh my God.
Don't worry, he's definitely not.

Dude, I see him looking at you
all the time.

- Wait, really?
- Yeah.

OK, what are you doing?

Oh, he was such a good boyfriend.

Yeah, he's also a great kisser.

Right, Ginny?

Um, I wouldn't know.

Wait, why do you know? Aren't you… gay?

You can say it.


It's not a secret.
I'll make out with pretty much anyone.

I've actually made out with
all our friends. Norah's the best kisser.

- Rude!
- I've never kissed a girl.

- Oh, are you h*m*?
- What? No.

She's kidding. She's hilarious.

Come here.

Jordan and Hunter and Brodie
are all in a band together.

3SB, 3 Sexy Boys.

Maxine named them.

Where is Hunter? Is he coming?

No. Uh, he's at SAT prep.

Or choir practice.

Pretty much whatever the hell it is
that he can do

so he can be president one day.

So, Ginny,
which one of your parents is white?

Um, my mom.

Oh yeah, that makes sense.

I'm gonna marry a black man

so I can have
adorable little mixed babies.

So, Ginny,
what, uh, kind of music do you like?

Uh… I like Mac DeMarco, Lana Del Rey...

Lana Del Rey got so basic.

She's so mainstream now.
She used to be alternative,

but now she just, like, does
whatever society wants her to do.

- OK, but she's still whimsical.
- You know what else I think?

No, Sam, we don't.
But I'm sure it'll be worthwhile.

I think Lady Gaga got really basic
since A Star is Born.

OK, you know what? That hurts my heart.

Do you remember
that meat dress that she wore?

- That was groundbreaking.
- Wait, what meat dress?

It was a dress
totally made out of meat.

Why would she do that?

To be groundbreaking.

Maybe I just hate Samantha.

You love me.

A Star is Born is so good.

I love the Janet Gaynor version
because it was revolutionary for its time.

But Judy Garland made it camp
in the best way.

She shows up, and she's like,
"Let's do a tap number."

But my favorite has to be Barbra's.

There was just
this amazing amalgamation of the '70s

and the women's movement and, and…


Gaga's was great,
but it didn't elevate the story.

I remember my first high.

Jesus! Serial k*ller much?

- How was the movie?
- Mom, please. I know you know.

But they don't know
that we know they know we know!

Come gossip to Mommy.

You never had friends to lie to me
about before. It's so exciting!

We just hung in Brodie's basement,

which was ridiculously nice.

It had a carpet
and a ping-pong table and everything.

Oh, rich people.

They snort caviar and talk about Aspen.

They smoked weed out of a bong.

Did you smoke?

Yeah. Is that OK?

Did you like it?

I was very aware of my arms.

Like what do they normally feel like?
I couldn't stop thinking about it.

First time I had an edible,
I pulled out all my eyelashes.

- That's so strange.
- I know. Super strange.

- Just be careful.
- I'm always careful.


- Hmm.
- What?

- Oh! Oh!
- No! What? No. Oh no!

- Oh my God, sex.
- No, God!

And intercourse.

And P in the V!

Is this Hell? It feels like Hell.

Just promise me you'll come to me
before you lose your virginity.

Why? Will my value as a woman
suffer a steep decline?

I'll get less cows for you.
Notably less cows if you're not a virgin.


Promise me.

OK, I promise.

- Mom?
- Hmm?

Is Lana Del Rey basic?


Lana is a goddess of sadness.

Thanks for telling me about the smoking.

- No secrets, right?
- Mm-hmm.

My regards to Vivien Leigh.

Scarlett O'Hara's been canceled, Mom.

I love you, Peach.

My mom is so pissed that we lied.

I'm so grounded, she almost didn't let me
come for callbacks today.

What if she doesn't let me go
to h*m* Sleepover?

- What's h*m* Sleepover?
- Only the sexiest night of the year.

It's when the h*m* sleep at school.

It's what h*m* get instead of prom.
I cannot wait for Junior Prom.

Isn't that not until May?

You are such an assh*le.

All right.

- Um, I have to pee.
- Oh fun! I'll come.

No, it's cool. I'll meet you there.

Later, loser.


Hey. I know things have been weird.

Things aren't weird.

Uh… Um, OK.

We haven't spoken since,
you know, you were inside of me,

so I'd say that's weird.

You seriously wanna do this here?

I took a pill to be safe.
Just wanted to let you know.


Our next book
is Catcher in the Rye. Now…

Do you have a tampon?

…is Salinger's gentle hand
guiding us…


When I look in the mirror,
I basically… Yes?

May I go to the restroom?

You had ten minutes before class,
but fine. Yes, go.

I basically see myself
when I see Holden Caulfield…

These are letters
that my dad wrote me from jail.

What makes me special is
that my dad isn't in a regular jail.

In fact, he's a wizard so powerful,
he's in Azkaban for dark magic.

Uh… Well…

Thank you, Austin.

Wizards aren't real, dummy.

- Yes, they are.
- Ms. Jakob, tell him.

Time for recess!


My drone is real,
and it would've been so much better.

And plus,
there's not even lenses in his glasses.

Everybody gets their period.

It's no big deal.

But, like,
did it really h*t him in the face? Oh!

Hey, Ginny?

My sisters always crave salt.


Sorry I wasn't at Brodie's last night.
I had some last-minute tutoring.

Maybe we can hang soon.



That transcended gender!

OK, I have to run to audition,
but have fun shopping. Love you, mean it.

Hate you, kidding.

- Oh, we were totally gonna invite you.
- Don't worry about it.

Uh, you should come.

Really? You think?

Oh, honey,

Hey, what boobs?

When she remembers the little boob.

Mm-hmm. You are a mood.

You have a massive crush on Paul.


No. Absolutely not.
I am a professional. I just admire him.

The way one would a Kennedy. Or Obama.

Or Jake Gyllenhaal.

Oh, come on.

You are just as thirsty.

It's your turn to get lunch today.

- You're a real b*tch, you know that?
- Hurry up. I'm hungry.


Yes? This is she.

My daughter would never steal.
This is an outrage. She would never...

Mom, I did it.

Did you check the other girls' purses,
or just my daughter because she's Black?

I work at Mayor Paul Randolph's office,
and he'd be fascinated to know

that a store in Wellsbury
was racially profiling.

Race had nothing to do with this.

Don't tell me race had nothing
to do with it. Did you see her shoplift?

- Yes, a pair of earrings and...
- Oh my God. Oh, I feel faint.

I'm sorry.
Social injustice tends to upset me.

I'm sure this was a misunderstanding.
I'd love to pay for the earrings.

And this lovely jacket.

Such beautiful things.

What an eye.

You take cash?

So, gals, fun day?

We had no idea that Ginny was stealing.

Get on home, girls.

You comin'?

Is that 87 King Street?

Come here.

Georgia, hi!

- Hi!
- I've been meaning to chat.

Zach was so disappointed
Austin took his Star of the Week slot.

He'd been really looking forward to it.

Is this your office?

Don't wanna let all the cool air out.

I don't think it's right to switch up
the order on the kids. Do you?

Oh, I'm sure I think
whatever it is that you think.

Right, well…

I hardly think it's Austin's fault
that his presentation was such a disaster.


I'm off. Enjoy your day.

What's Star of the Week?

I'm not sure. I can only deal
with one child in crisis at a time.

- What are we doing?
- We're having a late lunch.

- I'm tired. I wanna go home.
- Oh, criminal activity tucker you out?

Mom, do you really think
I was being racially profiled?

I dunno, Ginny. What's important is
they didn't press charges.

Can it be racial profiling if I did it?

Wake up, Ginny. It's not about that.
Do you think those girls care about you?

You're not their friend.
You're not one of 'em.

How quickly did the scary redhead
throw you under the bus?

I raised you smarter than this.

What would Zion say?

Dunno, Mom. Why don't you call him?
He always asks about you.

What possessed you, seriously?

I just wanted them to like me.

- ♪ Joe, Joe, Joe, Joe, Joe! ♪
- Oh no.

My daughter and I were shopping,
and we were suddenly famished.

I'll give you more time.

While shopping, I was thinking,
Ginny never learned the value of a dollar.

She's just been handed things
her whole life,

and what she isn't handed,
apparently, she just takes.

I'll come back.

And that isn't healthy
for character development.

- So I was wondering...
- No, I'm not hiring.

I was just gonna say
we'd love two turkey clubs.

- No mayo.
- Extra mayo.

- I think you should hire Ginny.
- Mom!

- I knew it.
- Just part-time.

I mean, look around.
So many customers not being helped.

That's because I'm standing here
talking to you.

Fine. She can start this weekend.

Two hands.

Thumb there.

Index finger right on the trigger
until you're ready to pull.

It's more accurate that way,
and you're not a cowboy.

If you're gonna be a Blood Eye,
you need to learn to defend yourself.

Powerful, ain't it?

You into g*n now?

Have you ever been to Utah?

Oh yes. I summer there.

I'm headed there next.

I think you should come with me.

You're leaving?

Yeah. I'm on a road trip, remember?

What, don't tell me
you wanna become a Blood Eye?

Join a motorcycle g*ng? Come on.


frown, and brown are all common nouns,

but brown can also be an adjective.

Come in.

Hi, Ms. Adams.

Thank you.

OK, OK, one at a time.

Yes, I did! I got the lead! I did it!

Oh my God. That's amazing, Max!

- I'm so excited.
- Yo, Max!

Don't look. We are mad at them.
What they did…

… bullshit.

- Ginny, you coming to leadership?
- Can't. Sorry.

Abby is, like, such a nightmare,

and also Norah thinks
your mom's, like, terrifying.

It's really funny.

She's so scared.

Why do I have to be here?

You're grounded
for your near misdemeanor.

Because we're bonding as a family.

Because I wanna cheer up Austin.

Pick your favorite.

Hey, guys. I'll be right back.

You've done such a great job.

We have
some new theater coming to town.

Uh, it's very interesting. Super exciting.
So we'll see how it all works out.

- Yeah.
- You know?

Fancy seeing you here!



I'm here with my kids.
You have to join us.

What a coincidence. Um…

- 'Cause my mom's a lying skank.
- Know what?

Left foot forward, follow through.

- Whoo!
- There you go! Good job, man!

I was thinking about Green Gardens today.

City Planning's claiming
they can't install AC

because the building's historic, right?

Right. Please, do not remind me.


"Hmm," what?

The building next door has AC.
Cynthia's real estate office.

They share a wall.

- You'd have to assume...
- That they share electric.

Cynthia was the one leading the charge
against the RMBs in Wellsbury, right?





I have a door.

I wanted
to make sure we were cool.


I am so cool.

I'm the coolest.

Really? 'Cause you…

kinda seem upset.


Well, maybe I'm upset

because I have hormones
literally coursing through my veins.

By the way, apparently, the guy buys it.
I didn't even have a coupon.

I have no idea what I'm doing
'cause that was my first time.

It was nothing how I thought.
Nothing in this town makes sense.

Everyone just kisses everyone,
and that's fine, apparently.

And I'm one of seven black kids
in the whole school,

and I just got caught shoplifting.

And… and now we have this huge sex secret,
and I can't even tell my new friends.

And I've never really had friends before,
and it's not been great.

I feel like I'm in a board game,
and I don't know any of the rules.

Like chess.
I never really figured out chess.

And I've been emotional all day. I…

I saw a kid litter,
and I started crying because…

nobody cares about the planet!

I was your first time?


Wait, what are we doing?

You already took Plan B, right?

That lasts for another day at least.


Get out right now!

Jesus, fine.


You OK?


I'm mad. I'm mad at you.
I'm mad at myself. I'm just mad.

It's OK.

It's OK to be mad.

I'm mad at you, too,
if it makes you feel any better.

I know what you need.

Mm-hmm. Come on.

She's a true chameleon.

All right.

Hi, girls!

- Oh. Hi, Ms. Miller.
- Hi, Ms. Miller.

Um, is Ginny home?
We wanted to see how she was doing.

She's inside. Go on in, girls.

Love the shirt, Abby.

So we went to, like,
three different stores,

and finally found the right shade.


'Cause the cosmetic industry's r*cist.

No, I mean, why would you do that?

Oh, we felt bad. You're our friend.

Oh my God.

There is the most amazing contour
YouTube video that I have to show you.

Oh my God. It's actually b*mb.

OK, but we have to listen to Lana Del Rey.

She's the goddess of sadness.

Oh, Max just texted me.

"You guys can't have fun without me!
I hate being grounded! Ah!"

There's, like, a million sad face emojis.
Oh my God. She's so extra.

We should take a picture
of the three of us to make her really mad.

Have fun!

What the hell?

- You're kidding me.
- Mary.

You've got a lot of nerve coming back.
Hey, get out of my house!

- Easy. Hey.
- What?

Easy with that, huh?
Hey, hey, hey, wait! No, no, no, no, no!

If beauty is a w*apon,

then Georgia has always been
locked and loaded.

Oh, Mary, no!

Stop it! Please!

- No.
- Please!

An eye for an eye.

I've never felt beautiful,

but I understand hiding.

Makeup works best
if no one knows you're wearing it.

Like Georgia says,

"It's a face.

Not a mask."

I see how my mom does it
because I'm doing it too.

The hiding,



I'm used to not being seen,

even by my mom.

If they can see where your makeup ends
and your face begins,

you've done it wrong.

Here's what I found
on your ex-husband's widow.

Georgia's real name is Mary.

She was born in Alabama
to mother Daisy Atkins.

Her father Shane Reilly
currently serving time in New Mexico

for attempted m*rder.

When Mary was six years old,

her mother remarried a man
named Ed Atkins.

Now, from age 14 to 18,
Mary's lived completely off the grid.

But at some point, she reemerged
and started going by Georgia Miller.

She has two kids with two different men.

Zion Miller is a photographer.

They were never married,
but she took his name.

Gil Timmins is her son's father

and is serving time
for fraud and embezzlement.

There are big gaps in the timeline
because Georgia's always on the move.

I'm not letting that trash
get Kenny's money.

Can we take her down?

I'm headed up to Wellsbury tomorrow.
Don't you worry.

If there's something, I'll find it.
