Critic reviews for Other Women
That separation between June and Offred is no longer a defense mechanism for June to hide her true feelings as a means of survival, it's full-on disassociation.
The Handmaid's Tale could never be called upbeat, but it goes to a truly dark place in the episode "Other Women."
It's so agitating that being back in the world of Commanders and the overwhelming number of Praise Bes dribbling out of the lips of Gileadeans that it was enough to drive this sane woman halfway crazy herself.
Although the violence is kept to a minimum, this week's episode is harrowing for a different reason as June loses the fight to keep her identity and appears to surrender to Offred.
