Why is Ginny in therapy? And does it have anything to do with Mike and Amelia? Well after getting signed with Nike, she finds out what fame really is — and if it’s too much to handle.
This week’s Pitch was an emotional one, so I hope you had your tissues. After signing a huge deal with Nike, Ginny was understandably shook, leading to a middle of the night panic attack. She called Amelia who rushed to her aid, leaving Mike in bed — a fact that Ginny wasn’t thrilled about when she later found out she told him she had a panic attack.
While getting ready for the huge Nike launch party, Ginny told Amelia she wouldn’t call her in situations like that going forward. Naturally, that led to a
discussion break up between Amelia and Mike — I couldn’t tell you who dumped who, since neither of them wanted to break up but clearly felt they both should. Plus he definitely wasn’t over his ex-wife, and ended up having dessert with her and her soon-to-be husband invited him in. He also told her he was still in love with her, but she reminded him that he only wanted what he couldn’t have — and he needed to figure out what he really wanted. (Will it be Amelia? Ginny? TBD.)
Meanwhile, that huge Nike party was not what Ginny wanted so a waitress broke her out and they headed to a house party where she finally let loose, and also put on New Balance sneakers in a dunking video that ended up online. Luckily, the waitress made sure she got to the stadium in the morning, and Amelia handled the sneaker fiasco, but the team was still worried — more about the other video of she and her new friend chatting in the bathroom and her breaking down in tears saying she wasn’t happy.
No, the waitress didn’t post the video, she gave it to Amelia and the Padres, because she was worried about her. So, she had to see a therapist. That’s how the entire story was told this week, through flashbacks during a meeting with her doctor (guest star Rita Wilson). Ginny finally admitted to her that she wasn’t sure this was what she wanted to do for the rest of her life. For the first time, Ginny felt in control of her own life.
And she kept that confidence through the last moments, when Amelia entered her room and let her know that those naked photos she took years ago have surfaced.
