'The Last Ceremony' is a soul-destroying episode that epitomises horror, not as a monster or a ghost but the wickedness of humanity.

It was very difficult to watch. You feel the pain of these characters in your bones... It was heartbreaking, it was sad, but it was necessary to watch.

This episode of the Handmaid's Tale leaves its viewers revolted. It shows the evil core of Gilead and parallels the culture of today.

BE BETTER, NICK! YOU ARE MEANT TO BE A SPY WORKING UNDERCOVER! HOW ARE YOU SO RUBBISH AT LYING?

It's brutal in the way The Handmaid's Tale refuses to sugarcoat what a nation like this would do to those it deems unclean.
