    S03.E13: Mayday

    That really bothered me. I was under the impression that it was a secret contraband plane that made regular smuggling runs. Suddenly it’s a giant jumbo jet that Gilead knows about? And nobody noticed the offloaded cargo got replaced with kids and notified the Gilead authorities? Or turned the plane around? Whut? WHUT? I suppose it’s possible that the crew was somehow in cahoots with the Jezebel guy — maybe some contraband always comes along with the Gilead-sanctioned cargo, and Jezebel guy paid them off against the promised paintings. (Speaking of which, I doubt Lawrence is gonna part with them, so Jezebel guy got rooked.) But that requires us to head canon an explanation. So sloppy. It should have been the Handmaids getting on the plane. The Marthas aren’t the ones being raped every month. The plane looked pretty packed. I think it’s possible some Marthas chose to stay behind so there would be room for all the kids. I admit to tearing up at the end when the kids all came out, Rebecca and her father reunited, and Luke was hopefully looking for Hannah. But the whole success of the mission was ridiculous. Not even remotely plausible.

    S03.E12: Sacrifice

    Both those reasons are why I thought it was stupid of June to just let her die. They could have all kept a close eye on Eleanor until the plan finished. As apt as Eleanor was to spill the beans, she was just one variable, one who could be controlled if they put in the effort. Her death could have created other variables, like Lawrence backing out of the plan or June being sent to another house immediately, which June couldn’t control. Just stupid. While Eleanor obviously couldn’t be taken to a hospital, I thought they could have possibly forced an emetic down her to get her to vomit up whatever drugs were still in her stomach, which could maybe have been enough to save her. (And where the hell did she get enough pills to OD on???)

    The Cast in Other Lands/Roles

    Amy Manson, our dear Merida, has a role in a Josh Whedon HBO series, with Jane Espenson on the writing staff.

    Swimming: Aquaman, Eat Your Heart Out!

    Oh yeah. Love it! Simone Manuel and Caeleb Dressel were dominant as expected. It’s such a shame that Katie Ledecky was sick — glad she was able to come back and gut out the 800. Regan Smith sure seemed to come out of nowhere (to me, anyway) to destroy the backstroke records. Kathleen Baker REALLY has her work cut out for her to get back on top in the U.S. after her pneumonia and broken rib. The U.S. didn’t seem to do quite as well in relays as usual, though they absolutely crushed a few.

    The Cast in Other Lands/Roles

    You can get a free trial that lasts a week -- if you wait until all the eps are uploaded, you can binge them. You can do the same for YouTube Live, too. So that would you give you two weeks between the two services.

    Pic of Colin for Right Stuff role. I'm very glad his hair isn't quite so period-authentic short.

    S03.E07: Under His Eye

    This season is so disappointing. I loved the first two seasons, but this season is not good. I feel like they have zero plan or end game in mind, so they’re just spinning their wheels. There’s no narrative flow or progress anymore. It’s becoming more and more ridiculous that June isn’t dead or in the Colonies. How did she not get even one harsh word from Commander Lawrence for getting his wife in that situation?? This season is making me so sad. I cannot possibly convey how little I wanted to see Serena and Fred dancin’ and romancin’ one another. Ugh. That said, I’m actually looking forward to next week.

    American Princess

    I'm concerned Lifetime is just burning this off with showing two eps at a time.

    I’m enjoying this. It’s light and fun. Good summer fluff.

    This Is Our Spoiler and Speculation Topic

    That was exactly my speculation when I saw that she was joining the show for a “major recurring role.”
