Spoiler:

I do wonder how she and the commander got together... They seem to have grown apart on the show.

Couldn't it be that they were married before all of this started?

I believe it's a must, in order to get a handmaid in the house.
Maybe something happened with the predecessor and it has to do with it too.

dont mind me, just randomly jumping in here guys.

i believe the rationale behind it (as far as Atwood's book is concerned and the subtext there) is that even if its the man that is infertile, they would never acknowledge it as such - they are the 'superior' species... in their own perverted version of utopia and therefore are never at fault. the women serve one real purpose - to procreate, if they cant (unless they are already married to men of import, like serena was) or serve some other purpose, like becoming a Martha, then they get shipped off to the colonies to sort through toxic gunk and die (apparently ). So it very likely is him that is sterile
Spoiler:


Yvonne has spoken a lot about how this woman has been stripped of her voice, her words, her identity as a woman across the board (including things like you can only have sex for procreation... - since she is considered 'barren,' even though its likely him that is the issue, they no longer have an intimate relationship of any kind (something that we see she still wants (ie intimacy) in ep 4) and that they certainly shared pre gilead. I think what we will see in this next ep
Spoiler:
but im really excited to find out.

haha we don't mind. We haven't read the book so we are guessing

If that's the case then I look forward to what is ahead of her on the show! I can't wait to see that tomorrow (or day after tomorrow for me )

Yeah he seemed to have a problem with her touching him in ep 4 when he couldn't get it done!

yeah, im really excited about it too.
from what i can make out, the critics and those that have had access to the ep are saying its great.

also, it sounds like yvonne has done a bunch of promo in conjunction with its release. so looks like we're going to get loads of interviews and things tomorrow and probably thursday too.
