I agree with the disappointment about this episode and the season in general. Either let June lead a major coup, or take the focus off her and show us more of the others. I'm not as invested in Emily, Moira, and Luke as others are, but their story lines are more compelling than watching June lurch from one bad idea to another.
I guess stoning is so last year, and now the Handmaids have to pull on ropes like ancient galley slaves to hang people? After showing some glimpses of humanity last week, Aunt Lydia is back to ordering cruelties cloaked in piety. I can hardly wait to learn her backstory.
I wish Commander Stabler would quit flirting and make an all out pass at Fred.
I too was surprised that Gilead allows dancing among the Commanders and their Wives. So Fred and Serena love each other again?
I want to see more of Commander Lawrence and wife Eleanor. That was really resourceful of her to make up that story on the spot about wanting a tour of the school. She alternates between helplessness and cleverness, and I wonder whether she exaggerates her illness to throw people off the fact that she's playing some kind of long game. I hope she and June have more "adventures" together. I really want to know whether Lawrence turns out to be friend or foe. He doesn't seem interested in baby-making, but it could be a problem for June if she doesn't get pregnant soon.
Ofmatthew intrigues me also. Last week she didn't seem that happy about her latest pregnancy, but this week she's back to mealy-mouthed pieties. I hope she doesn't miscarry as a result of being attacked by June (for June's sake). She seemed to have some kind of pain during that shopping trip and implied that this pregnancy hadn't gone as well as the earlier ones.
