Austin grabs a gun and shoots his father in the arm, Georgia takes control and holds Gil at gunpoint until he calms down.

Does Paul learn the truth about Georgia?

In the season finale, Georgia confessed to Paul that she isn't as innocent as he thought and in fact, she is the reason that Gil went to prison, as she framed him for embezzlement as he was an 'abusive a**hole.' She told him that she stole from work and although she gave it all back, she said she has 'been a hustler and a criminal' her whole life. She omitted the murders she has previously committed but told him that she previously lost custody of Ginny, was once in prison, and is being blackmailed by Gil.

Paul confronts Gil in front of a lawyer, a police officer, and Georgia and tells him he will not be getting a penny of his money and he will never be able to control Georgia or get custody of Austin. Paul then tells Georgia that although he is still angry with her, he loves her and can't imagine his life without her.
