Serena it to me was quite obviously trying to kill her self. Then something made her change her mind. If it were a baptism she would have put her face in the water. She did not. I for one am glad she did not do the star is born ending, because she is by far the most interesting character on the show.
Yes, even more interesting than Lawrence, who I believe is not a psychopath. But he doesn’t want to show all his cards. He wasn’t really being cruel asking June to choose. As even I did not realize until the very end, offering her soldiers.
June could get Waterford in big trouble and he knows it so it makes sense she’d talk to hima and he has a kind of soft spot for her.
re mom and the reading and the walking partner: come ON show. Gilead is only a few years old. Every adult in the world grew up in in time before Gilead. There’s no way those men could possibly believe June has forgotten how to read, what was the point of that? Serena having a mother who is all in on Gilead only makes sense if this show takes place about 70 years from now. the thing with the walking partner. Even if she’s young, she went to high school and everything else in the world before Gilead. We know Gilead can’t have gone on that long because her daughter still a child.
aunt Lydia got mean when she couldn’t make it up the steps. Not dementia or concussion just lashing out in embarrassment.
dont know where Cora is but guessing she’s safe.
