    I don’t understand Serena’s appearance in the hospital nor their appearance at this forced ceremony. Of all the “observers” to pick from, why them? It worsens an already contrived plot

    It looks like he’s going to be forced to force himself on June. As if this wasn’t a fucked world already. Taking a wild guess that if that’s what’s going on, he won’t be able to get it up

    Only the last 3 episodes of S2 was eligible so the 11 noms is actually an over performance. They were nominated in all the categories in which they were eligible. Lead and supporting actors/actress weren't eligible

    The problem with this theory of June unleashing like the previous Handmaids is that they are no longer in Gilead for various reasons. Emily and Moira escaped but for Emily, it wasn't before she was severely punished, (FGM and Colonies) and the others are dead. None of these things will happen to June for meta reasons so the unleashing of her anger won't have a credible fallout.

    Of course she did. The twat knows she's an Executive Producer of the show and is going nowhere

    I am not sure if you guys found evidence of Serena's fertility. I came across this screenshot of a Business Insider article with Miller on Reddit

    Saying June has plans to steal her own kid won't be the first time Gilead ideologies has bled into our discourse. It is along the lines of referring to Serena as Holly's mother, adoptive or surrogate. Even going along and buying into the notion that she's a multifaceted character pointing to her she's suffering due of the absence of Holly is falling into the same trap. It calls on us to disregard a large part of the narrative, that Holly was never her's, should have never been around her to "mother" in the first place. Yet many have bought into it and see Serena as an interesting character because of it. Same with letting her go. It disregards why Holly is positioned to be let go In the same way that it is not debatable that June is and will always be Hannah's mother thus isn't 'stealing her, Serena wasn't and will never be Holly's anything yet ........

    You stated what I find most the disturbing about this show because ever since her pinky was chopped off, the show has positioned Serena as someone to sympathize with. What with June holding her hand in solitary. I repeat, in solidarity. The show drew parallels between Serena Joy and the Handmaid she’s just held down to be raped. With the Handmaid being the main source of comfort. It wasn’t a contrast, its as if as if by suffering that laughable punishment, she’s now on pare with the oppressed in the regime. So yes, the show does want us to feel for Serena when she agonizes over the baby she raped into being then stole from her mother. They want us to see her “letting her go” as honorable. It is verbatim what June herself said. June felt so strongly that she saddled the kid, for a lifetime, with a name to reflected that feeling. Now they expect us to see her as tortured over that honorable decision and find the back and forth compelling This show lost every shred of credibility the moment they decided to showcase Serena Joy in this light.

    I was going to watch this after the Debate but I guess I'll read the reviews linked in addition to yours. Emily is the only thing working for this show and she's barely on. The June, Waterfords and Nick show no longer works.

    Serena choice was made in an incapacitated state. She's shown since she sobered up that it was a moment of weakness. Remember that screaming in June's face and walking around like a zombie since? No, Serena's "choice" wasn't a choice at all. It was someone who was caught in a moment of weakness

    All of this is why I was livid that he allowed her to hold Holly. That move, the relenting, invalidated everything that proceeded, I felt like.

    You went there. A villain who stops being a villain 1 out of 10 times is still a villain. And yes, they are plentiful in real life. Fred also took June to see Hannah, let her read and gave her a new dress. Where is the parade being held

    She didn't help June. She stopped standing in her way. That is not helping. Many people helped June, Serena wasn't one of them. Next you'll be saying Serena should be given credit for coercing June and Nick to have sex under her watchful eyes
