Critic reviews for Other Women
It's a testament to the show that they can make melodramatic affair confrontations land with as much of a wallop as someone cutting their own ear off.
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."
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.
