Critic reviews for Women's Work
Even though the show is careful about asking too much sympathy for Serena Joy, this is also the episode that exposes the awkwardness behind the show's diversity.
The Handmaid's Tale remains completely unpredictable, because there are no one-dimensional characters.
Serena not only took a very big risk to help others, she suffered very painful consequences for it.
For the first time all season, Fred is ascribing to the "superiority" of his gender that Gilead has given him.
Serena's punishment was awful and the apparent fate of baby Angela gave my heart a thorough going over before the surprise happy ending. So, I give this week a solid six.
