Welp, June's Ye Olde Plote Armour is stronger than ever. Probably not even going to lose an eye (not that I condone such punishments but it happened to Ofglen 2) and Janine is going to be fast tracked to the wall. Sigh. I am expecting no consequences doled out for June, why do the writers think it is a good idea for her to just futz around the whole house and no one cares? All in the name of defiance? Can she please just grab Hannah and get the hell out of Gilead so we can focus on a new handmaid? I want to learn more about OfMatthew the salty, pious one. Is she a true believer Eden status? Or is she playing a smarter long game than June? I'm glad, unlike the other handmaids, that she's not buying June's holier-than-thou attitude.
Aunt Lydia and Janine was just brutal. When Janine got tons of screentime and a sunny demeanor I knew it wasn't ending well.
For once in her life Naomi Putnam wasn't the coldest person in the room. She even seemed to kind of like the kid this time.
I am so over Serena and her "make us think she is going to do the right thing until she doesn't" routine. Cancel the Waterfords, back to the Lawrences please.
For all the ways June pisses me off I didn't blame her for correctly identifying Luke. She knows too well that when Eyes/Angels come around that they already know their answer and are testing their subject to see if they lie. But there seems to be this formula with each episode this season that June gets herself in trouble, almost learns lesson, gets final scene confirmation that her stinky attitude is worth it, lather rinse repeat. This is getting old!
That being said, Emily's bittersweet scenes saved the episode from being a total clunker.
