Diving deep into the gripping backstories of the powers that be is where The Handmaid's Tale excels, but mishandling racial dynamics within Gilead evokes more confusion than clarity.

Ultimately, The Handmaid's Tale flashback episode didn't reflect the complicated villain they've been building, and doesn't humanize her the way they want it to.

It's here! The sweeping Aunt Lydia backstory episode we've been waiting for, ever since the Gilead equivalent of Miss Trunchbull trudged onto our screens.
