    OMG the latest episode. I actually kind of warmed to Serena Joy and she is my ultimate hate in this show. Felt sorry for her.

    Also Jeanine’s parts in the ep were so touching.

    Another solid episode. Teaser for next week is out and it looks like episode 9 is gonna be a good one!

    I feel so conflicted with Serena cos she can be such a cow but then you get those moments where you realise she’s almost as trapped as June is. The Commander is a warped man.

    Loved Janine and the baby, why does Janine not get referred to as Of-whoever though?

    I feel like Nick is gonna commit suicide - his life is so crap.

    Episode 8 I started to feel slightly different about Seeena but I just think her ‘change’ is due to her short sightedness and the shame it brings. She was integral to Gilead and it’s formation including all the ‘neccessary’ Deaths. Did she think she was exempt?

    I need more Aunt Lydia.

    From the season 2 trailer, who do you think the couple drowning in the pool are? I think/hope it’s that dumb demon Eden and her fancy man guardian.

    The last two episodes have been really intense, almost too intense to watch, like Offred being raped by the Commander and Serena.

    That was traumatising tbh. They’re so awful. I hope to god it was Nick come back to save her at the end of the last ep. She deserves some happiness.

    The rape episode was awfully sad.

    Like we’d all gotten used to the society but the most basic aspect was the most shocking.

    Last episode was pretty boring.

    As much as Enid was annoying, I didn’t want that for her. Very painful episode to watch. I think we need some joy soon in this show.

    It makes me laugh how they keep having Nick back despite knowing he tried to help Offred escape and he’s the father of her child.

    I think that Fred is aware that Nick's an Eye, so it would be dangerous to try to get rid of him, especially considering problematic events in his household and how they are perceived among other commanders with higher ranks. He doesn't have solid proof to report Nick. But according to the finale preview it seems he came to the breaking point, so he turned to the extreme actions. Can't wait to see how that will turn out.

    Omg I know!! It was really incredible. They really left it with so much more story to tell for next season. Can’t wait to see what will happen next for basically everyone. Such a nail biting episode. The writing on this show is really fantastic.

    Great final episode, I’m so happy for Emily and stoked at what she did to Aunt Lydia! That’ll teach her to be so condescending.

    I was like “what the hell is she doing?!” when June stayed, but then remembered Hannah.

    I agree with No Angel.

    Great episode, they all got what they deserved. I love Emily. She’s probably my favourite character. I live Lydia though (she makes me laugh with her vile antics).

    It was an inconsistent (we need another season in Gilead) ending. I mean what the hell is June going to do. Nothing.

    I’m so happy that Emily has “hopefully” gotten away scott-free after what she did to Lydia! It was brilliant seeing Lydia getting some comeuppance.

    I had a feeling that June was gonna end up going back for Hannah. I love the series so much but kinda hoping the next season is the last and that they all live happily ever after at the end.

    June is really and truly risking everything.

    Apparently, they plan to milks this for a long long time...

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-44614012

    Honestly, 3 seasons are more than enough for this type of show.

    Season 1 - Book
    Season 2 - Extension and further explanation of Gilead world
    Season 3 - Revolution

    It will be absolutely ruined if it’s keeps going on for much longer. I was really hoping the third season would wrap it all up.

    The showrunner said he's mapped out the story for 10 seasons! I doubt we're gonna get that many, but they're definitely gonna try and do at least a few more. Hulu will want to milk as much as they can. It just scored 20 Emmy nominations for this season alone.

    Unfortunately, for me, this season has been a bit disappointing. I never expected them to top the first one, but it seems that the absence of any more book material to work with took its toll.

    It's still one of the most expertly crafted shows at the moment, the acting and directing have always been top notch, but some of the writing this season lacked and they made some really frustrating choices, in my opinion.

    I‘m on Season 1 - Episode 3 now.

    It‘s horrible to watch yet astonishingly well-made. The portrayal of a society that sick and fucked up is executed to perfection.

    I am craving for harmony - like the scene in which Offred plays a party of Scrabble with the Commander.

    It‘s one of these series that benefits from longer breaks between episodes because there is literally too much evil stuff going on.

    Which season do you all prefer overall?

    I know that Season 1 elaborated on the book‘s content whereas Season 2 follows a screenwriter‘s script.

    What was more convincing to you?

    The book obviously left the reader desperate because there was an open end. These screenwriters had lots of possible sequels to create.
