This week's episode reads a fairly excruciating eight on the grim scale, taking into account the diseased inmates, hanging academics and crucified Marisa Tomei.
There are hints that the show wants to make more of Ann Dowd, as any show would. Her Aunt Lydia is a fascinating amalgam of contradictions.
That added richness contributes heavily to the sense that this episode belongs to Emily, and not to June, and it's that sense that bodes most positively for this season, and for the future of The Handmaid's Tale as a whole.
If you've wondered to yourself, as I have, Why didn't more people just flee America when they realized what was happening? the airport scene answers that question.
Bledel (Gilmore Girls) is stellar in the episode.
'Unwomen' may have taken a step back to reveal those judgemental motivations, but its captivating sense of purpose means that it will always exceed expectations.
It may be difficult to watch but The Handmaid's Tale does something that is so rare for a show to do - it makes us feel right down to our very core.
Phenomenal. It is jaw dropping... Alexis Bledel is coming for that Emmy.
The dusty barren, radioactive landscapes feel like something out of Mad Max, with the "unwomen" in grey babushka outfits and the superiors donning gas masks and aprons.
Thanks to inspired writing and stunning performances from Moss and Bledel, as you watch June and Emily's stories - and their lives - unravel at the start of season two, you will be gripped, scared and mesmerised in equal measure.
Guys, Alexis Bledel kills it in the second episode of The Handmaid's Tale's second season.
...This was an excellent twist, because it's genuinely surprising without selling out the character in any way...
