Critic reviews for The Bridge
Claustrophobia and heart-thumping tension were finely balanced in the penultimate episode of this portrayal of the United States as a Bible Belt dictatorship in which women are glorified slaves.
The penultimate episode of The Handmaid's Tale Season 1 has arrived, and to my delight, it managed to pull some punches along the way
June's relationship with the Commander progressed in an oddly satisfying way, while it was impossible not to become even more detached as a viewer from most of the men in Gilead.
Pour one out for poor Janine. "The Bridge," which climaxes on an actual bridge, is a swan song to Gilead's most damaged and endearing handmaid.
I think "The Bridge" was a necessary episode -- a bridge, if you will, between the first season and whatever the second is going to be.
