    I thought Treasure Island too. He mentioned a character named "Silver" so it makes sense.

    The weird editing of scene is very jarring. There will be a relatively serious scene of important exposition, followed by a 30-second shot of someone having sex to a jaunty soundtrack, and then suddenly we're back at the main plotline. It does get confusing.

    The shot at the end, with the handmaids carrying a bloody June in her cape, was very reminiscent of "Descent From the Cross" paintings. With June playing the role of Jesus, of course. 🙄

    I think with Subha being all "I'm meant to be here!" last week, he'll be eliminated this week.

    This is true for the individual challenges but not the "restaurant takeover" challenges, which I think are absolutely useless. They're not trying to be a head chef or run their own restaurant, so why are you making them cook on a line and screaming if they aren't the world's best team leaders?

    If there is (or was) seemingly serious discussion about returning Nichole/Holly to her "rightful" parents the Waterfords, how would these 52 children being taken into Canada be any different? If their commander parents made tearful pleas on TV for the return of "their" children as Fred and Serena did, wouldn't Canada consider doing so? As others have said, I'm not arguing that the kids will be "better off" staying in Gilead, but it just seems like there are so many variables in this plan that could go horribly wrong at any moment. But we all know there will be a tiny bit of tension that will end with June looking tearfully and triumphantly up at the plane flying away as she's hauled off once again, having been captured.

    Maybe I missed something, but why aren't the authorities coming to bring Kate and Lydia back to Bedlam...?

    I thought she just sort of didn't do anything...?

    I'm pretty sure I did hear Noah pronounce "macaron" as "Macron."

    I enjoyed Moira's verbal takedown of Serena, but what I don't get is why the hell Luke and Moira would even show up with Holly to let her not-mother/rapist's accomplice visit with her? What the fuck? I want to like the journalist dude but his flirtiness with Serena is NOT CUTE. Serena might be an interesting character but I still DO NOT feel sorry for her and I never will. It's so frustrating that the refugees in Canada aren't doing shit to expose Gilead for what it is!!!! The closeup of the eyes at the end made me LOL.

    Re: the children of color, I figured they were children taken from women who were then made to be handmaid's, like Hannah going to the McKenzie's. I'm not sure how we were supposed to infer that he'd killed other commanders for them...

    I enjoyed Cherry teaching Kate profanity. Also, maybe an unpopular opinion here, but while I don't mind the character of Harriet, the actress that plays her isn't very good. She always comes across so flat and monotone.

    Yep, that and the fact that after trying for children with both Serena and handmaids there was no success.

    Maybe, but honestly to me it almost looked like he was going to do some kind of footjob action with her. It looked like he was about to rub the shoes in his crotch. Not that June would have to be facedown for something like that, but it could even be that he didn't want to see her face or something.

    Don't the other commanders that are friends of Fred's know who his handmaid was? Especially since she was so visible with the disappearance of Nicole, etc.
