I was honestly disappointed that they had June fire those shots to re-enter captivity... I don’t know, I guess seeng her sacrifice herself for the unborn baby just felt tired.
I loved the tiny moment of Emily’s pain and despair when her eyes flickered down to June’s belly... it was a great contrast to the other Handmaids getting excited over feeling the kick.
For me, most of the suspense of that final sequence came from June’s internal conflict- I was absolutely terrified she wouldn’t be able to make herself get on the plane. It was a lovely moment of (imagined) grace between June and her mom and Hannah, and I thought the brief moment of giddy solidarity between June and…
A subtle moment: Holt turning to Jake for confirmation that Amy Adams is, indeed, the name of a famous actress.
I can’t reconcile a show that expects us to take Annalise’s class action, and the various criminal and social injustices addressed at other times over the series, seriously while also being able to move past what Michaela did to Simon.
THANK YOU for mentioning Annalise in bright yellow.
Valencia’s very, very gay girlfriend!! Dog Josh!!! “Look, a podcast!”!!!
I can’t believe they’ve brought me here, but I agree completely. Darryl’s apparently genuine baby fever was so out of left field and honestly boring at best and annoying at worst.
White Josh’s delayed realization during Darryl’s break-up speech reminded me of Ann Perkins not realizing Chris had dumped her on Parks & Recreation.
Wow, you absolutely turned me around on the West Covina scenes. I really did not like them, as I felt that realistically Paula and Daryl should have been a lot more concerned about Rebecca’s safety. But in the context of highlighting how important Rebecca is to the people around her, even the ones she wouldn’t expect…
Wait... that twist with the blogger would have been kind of amazing
Wow, I was genuinely, viscerally horrified by what Rebecca did to Josh this episode.
to be fair but also pedantic, the behind-the-scenes reason White Josh isn’t singing is that David Hull wasn’t initially in the scene and hadn’t been given the song in advance
I’m starting to wonder if the reason they don’t give Oliver more scenes is that they’re worried we’ll realize how much more likable his is than everyone else, the bunch of whiny criminals
I know it doesn’t really belong here but I just feel the need to throw some love towards Coherence (2013).
