    June was screaming and going nuts on OfMatthew and the other handmaids were breaking their organized lines to rush over and block the view. That wouldn’t attract attention? We’ve seen in multiple scenes that the guards are ever present and sometimes even walking beside the women. It just really strains belief that they wouldn’t at least break up the fight and if nothing else, report the incident to aunt lydia, who would undoubtedly punish June in a way that wouldn’t be visible in the propaganda films (cut off a finger, whip her feet, etc).

    Oh, you are probably right. I just remember them having drinks at Jezebel's and it being super special and forbidden, but maybe just forbidden for anyone not a wife/commander. I was thinking either the lesbian angle or that the principal would get all sexual assault-y on Lydia once they got back to her apartment on New Year's. I was really glad that didn't happen since he seemed like such a nice guy.

    Agree! That part was legit interesting. And the Aunts enjoying some sherry even though it's outlawed (they're hypocrites as much as anyone else).

    Agree with that interpretation of Lydia's breakdown, and also agree it wasn't portrayed very well. I still think it's some BS though considering the guy was still into her, etc., just not RIGHT THEN.

    The thing that bugged me about Lydia’s backstory was that yes, the guy rejected her, but only because he said it was too soon after his wife’s death. Embarrassing, definitely, but it’s not as if he recoiled in horror and called her ugly and disgusting or anything. He said he wanted to “see” her again... Not that that makes her actions any more reasonable, but...

    Uh, she has reached and then left that stage over and over throughout the last two seasons. That’s one of the things about this show that’s getting old. So June can attack a *pregnant* handmaid with no consequences, but when said pregnant handmaid attacks Janine the guards immediately come over to grab her? Yeah, sure.

    In the second hanging scene I saw Trinity Church in the background.

    That's happened before, though. Every time Serena does her dirty, she's all "Oh hell no" and smirky by the end of the episode, only to have it happen again.

    My favorite part of the episode? Commander Stabler's wife's name was Olivia. Heh. If Nick is a Commander now, why doesn't he have a new wife and handmaid of his own? Especially since he isn't shooting blanks? Do the commanders get to choose when and to whom they get married?

    I thought Serena told Fred that Nick was the father, and even named the baby Nicole as a further dig.

    I had a moment of excitement when I thought SJ was glancing at the airplane door and thought she might throw herself out...

    Big shocker, Serena didn't live up to her word to June. That's never happened before! If I were Luke I would've taken that locket from Serena and thrown it into the garbage in front of her. Serena can go DIAF.

    How many times in the past seasons has June gotten close to Serena only to be “surprised” when Serena turns on a dime and treats June cruelly again? Agree that we need more of Lydia’s backstory.

    Was it meant to symbolize baptism? I took it as she intended to drown herself, but then saw the sunrise and realized that it was (literally and figuratively) a new day, and decided to hang in there.
