"After" weaves various storylines beautifully in a bleak climate that turns strangely hopeful, with a standout performance by a featured character.
If you had given up on The Handmaid's Tale, my strong hunch is that now may be a good time to start watching again. Revolution is in the air.
I like how Eden's enthusiasm, despite her loveless marriage, is a source of major eye-roll to Offred.
As The Handmaid's Tale stops to recalibrate itself before heading into the home stretch, it stumbles a little, weaving its many threads together in a way that's somewhat satisfying, impeccably acted, and beautifully filmed, but frustratingly lightweight.
Last week, I wondered if the bombing would make things better or worse for the oppressed people of Gilead. To its credit, "The Handmaid's Tale" envisions a more complicated outcome.
The Handmaid's Tale has an uncanny ability to conjure up shots so bleak and yet so beautiful.
[Serena's] character gets more interesting by the day.
[The Handmaid's Tale] sparks a kind of quiet revolution.
In an otherwise incredibly empowering episode of The Handmaid's Tale, Moira is reduced to a woman defined by her reproductive choices.
As glimmers of hope increasingly threaten to crack through the oppressive atmosphere that dominates The Handmaid's Tale, we see the scales of power begin to tip.
So: The eternal mud-wrestling match between Offred and Serena would appear, at first, to be ended, or at least suspended, or at least different.
[Samira] Wiley has been consistently brilliant in the role, but this week, she utterly broke me.
We see instances of friendship throughout the episode - from June and Emily to, perhaps, June and Serena.
