The Handmaid's Tale (Hulu) #8: We'll make heaven a place on Earth. 🎶







+






Adapted from the classic novel by Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid's Tale is the story of life in the dystopia of Gilead, a totalitarian society in what was formerly the United States.
Facing environmental disasters and a plunging birthrate, Gilead is ruled by a twisted fundamentalism in its militarized ‘return to traditional values'.
As one of the few remaining fertile women, Offred (Elisabeth Moss) is a Handmaid in the Commander’s household, one of the caste of women forced into sexual servitude as a last desperate attempt to repopulate the world.
In this terrifying society, Offred must navigate between Commanders, their cruel Wives, domestic Marthas, and her fellow Handmaids – where anyone could be a spy for Gilead – all with one goal: to survive and find the daughter that was taken from her.

Yeah it's 13 which is good. If the finale is airing this week, I'm disappointed because nothing is remotely happening this season.

I'm actually relieved this season is less graphic but it's just extremely slow.

yeah, there's time for action still.

wow, this week's ep was heavy...I mean they usually are but this one really hit

I guess no household can escape the ceremony in this hellish place..no matter how powerful the commander is. it was so terrible and this time for the first time probably I felt sorry for the wife too I really love Mrs. Lawrence. she's got issues but she's such a great person. and I think they're the only couple we've seen who really love each other.. they just so did not want to do it bc how messed up it is in any marriage to have someone else involved, and also bc they're actually good people at heart and would never want to hurt a handmaid or anybody. so it was just so heartbreaking I really felt for all 3 of them...

Fred is really just the devil honestly, of course what else is new...I did love that June told him afterwards that "at least it wasn't" him it's the least he deserves..friggin scumbag...

the ending was so badass!!! loved that Jaws reference from June it's really amazing how many Marthas are on board with her plan despite all the hangings lately. of course they got nothing to lose.

Last episode was pretty good. The scene for the ceremony was very emotional for sure. June saying that to Fred I think will only fuel the fire for his vendetta against her. I'm still waiting for the commander to make the moves on him

I also think Lydia needs to get a taste of her own medicine, I feel like something needs to give her a different perspective on the handmaids roles.

Finally a much better ep. When I saw the room all lit up and cozy, I knew a ceremony was gonna happen but I'm surprised they didn't show it?

Best line was definitely "At least it wasn't you" from June to Fred.

I like Mrs. Lawrence too. I wonder if her condition really took it's toll being in Gilead? I mean if it wasn't for this system, she'd be on her right state of mind or at least better?

FINALLY June is onto something. I don't know why it took this long though.
