Even though that was absolutely humiliating and I can empathize because she’s a human, I can not sympathize. She seemed a-ok with facilitating rape, verbally and physically abusing June and Rita, not to mention that yes, this was the society she helped to create. The only way I would start to feel for her and the hell she’s living in (of her own making) is if she starts to repent and see the things she’s been complicit in are wrong. I don’t see that happening. June gave her more concern than she deserved.
I just love Janine. Once again, I’m reminded how the Wives are really the most worthless women in this fucked up society. The handmaids have the children, most of the time not even biologically related to either eventual “parent”, the Martha’s do the cooking and cleaning. The econowives do all that stuff too, presumably. The Wives don’t do anything. Worthless.
Eden is a child and was obviously indoctrinated into this fanatical world. I feel badly for her, but she’s also annoying as all get out. I don’t think Nick is treating her badly at all (again, child bride statutory rape aside because this is Gilead and it’s fucked up).
