I found a sneak peek and needed to find a way to share it with you guys. I thought this was the safest way!

The sneak peek looks very interesting though! I wonder what it is going on with all those handmaids!

You're welcome!

Another teaser from Elisabeth Moss' instagram



I love how they tell you nothing but they still make me very curious!

I have mixed feelings on Moira's development this ep. Part of me was "this was a bit too feelgood Hollywood" (the show, unlike the book, has those moments from time to time; fortunately not too many, but they are still there). But another part of me was "go, girl! I've always wanted you to win!" Watching her drive off was very satisfactory and my happy-ending-loving self kinda hopes she survives. And sees and helps Gilead go down.

Poor Janine, her part was the most heartbreaking.

Serena continues being complicated. On one hand, we see something akin to solidarity with other women, with both that other wife (I forgot her name) and Rita. On the other hand, I still feel more sorry for poor Handmaids and Marthas who have to put up with these ladies.

The Commander continues being the easiest to hate.

I've seen it!
It was a really interesting episode.

June becoming part of Mayday and Moira helping her didn't like their fight.. well it was well acted but I don't want them to fight.. they're all they have left in this crazy world!

Poor Janine! I felt for her so badly
It was surprising to see aunt Lydia by her bed when she was in the hospital. I do hope we see more of her!

Who else has seen it?

I didn't like the fight either. I understand where June was coming from, but I thought it was very unfair of her to respond to Moira's trauma like that.

I like what the actress who plays Janine and the author of this article's comment about Janine and the significance of acknowledging not everyone is going to be the brave hero(ine) under these kinds of circumstances.

Quote:
“I think a distinction that can be made between those two suicides is Ofglen is letting the world know that they won’t break her,” Brewer said. “And Janine is kind of succumbing to the fact that this world has broken her. I think that the big difference between the two of them is that [Ofglen], all the **** that happens to her, she only gets more and more fire. And Janine, all the **** that happens . . . she’s just tired of it. This world hasn’t completely broken her. She just doesn’t know what else to do.”

The Handmaid’s Tale is chock-full of characters whose strength is both undeniable and inspirational. Offred’s refusal to give up is nothing short of heroic; Moira, too, proves her boundless bravery when she makes a second escape attempt—this time from the brothel Jezebel’s. It’s this abundance of courage and fortitude that makes Janine—a more fragile person—so important to this world. Viewers need a reminder that while survival and sanity can be found in Gilead, some people will permanently collapse under its weight. The collateral damage this dystopia has wrought amounts to not just psychological trauma—as bad as that alone would be—but also the loss of so much innocent life. Janine represents that loss—and because of that, her decision to jump from the bridge is one of the drama’s most powerful moments yet.
