Quietly disturbing, "Seeds" shines light on the systemic pecking order of The Handmaid's Tale's world while providing a bit of sweet karma.
The relentless horrors of life in the colonies bring this episode up to a hard-going 7/10.
Unlike the extended torture sequences of which the show has grown so fond, the scene in Offred's bedroom when Serena and Lydia discuss her health as if she's not there illuminates so much about her plight.
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.
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.")
Seeds isn't the first episode of season 2 I would choose to re-watch, but it was another very competent episode in what is a frighteningly consistent show...
Praise be, our girl is back.
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.
Let's take a second to celebrate one of this great-but-bleak show's tiny wins: June's fighting spirit has returned.
[It is] a sweet reminder that even the woman who created the hell of Gilead got herself swept up in something she cannot control.
Quiet is an effective way of making The Handmaid's Tale feel more disturbing than ever.
