Christina is Ms. Mina's daughter. She's a year older than Ruth and growing up, the two were close friends. However, Christina led a life of privilege and never fully understood what Ruth's life was like, which led Ruth to distance herself just in case Christina started to exclude her. Christina was also traumatized by watching her mother give birth, which led her to choose to have her son via surrogate. In the present, Christina is married to a man named Larry and is struggling with his decision to run for Congress. As Ruth is charged with murder, Christina explains that the two can't be seen together, as it'd be damaging for Larry's campaign to be involved with such a scandal. Ruth sees this as proof that Christina is biased, racist, and privileged. However, in the final days of the trial, Christina shows up at Ruth's house and explains that she's been in court in disguise. She apologizes for her behavior and her ignorance, and it's implied that she and Ruth start to repair their relationship and be more honest with each other after the case ends.
