Another Ground Question

When installing 20 AMP GFCI duplex outlet in a metal box, where the ground wire from breaker bus (12-2) to wire nut containing 12-2 wire going to next duplex outlet and pigtail to green screws on both duplex outlets need to be attached to metal boxes too?

Yes, metal boxes must be grounded directly, not via a path through a receptacle or switch.
