Critic Consensus: Quietly disturbing, "Seeds" shines light on the systemic pecking order of The Handmaid's Tale's world while providing a bit of sweet karma.
Critic reviews for Seeds
Since the beginning of The Handmaid's Tale, our perspective on the show's onslaught of horrifying, outrageous events has been filtered through June's eyes.
There comes a tipping point when the despair starts to feel hollow. "Seeds" is that tipping point.
I'm getting a bit bored and skeptical about Nick, as some of you were last week as well.
It's nice to see The Handmaid's Tale back to form after some uneven episodes and doing what it does best, which is beautifully conveying defiance in the face of overwhelming odds.
Boyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy, it's a tough watch. (The full extent of my feelings on this could only be conveyed by several hundred more Y's in "boy.")
