The handmaids are forced to help kill three people. They kill the three people by hanging. June speaks to the Waterford’s Martha. They speak of Hannah, June’s oldest child. June wants her out of Gilead and safe. The Martha tells June where to go and who to ask for to help her and Anna.
Meanwhile in Canada, Emily is questioned about her escape from Gilead. Her sister is trying to reach out to her. Emily doesn’t seem very interested in support. Serena on thew other hand is tentatively looking at houses in the DC area to move into. She becomes stuck in the baby’s room.
There are talks of returning Nichole and a treaty about returning kids. Unfortunately, or fortunately depending on your view, Nichole must stay in Canada for a while longer. June talks Mrs. Lawrence into going for a walk. She wants to get to Brooklyn by 3 and cannot go alone. Commander Lawrence is away. After a time June comes clean to Mrs. Lawrence and says she will take her home if she would like. Mrs. Lawrence takes June to Brooklyn.
Emily and Moira protest the consideration Canada is giving to Gilead and the possibility of the return of Baby Nichole. They end up in jail for their trouble. June gets so close to seeing Hannah only to be denied. Mrs. Lawrence gets all worked up and confused. Commander Lawrence is pissed I think but has said nothing to June.
Either Serena is a master at manipulation or I think she and Commander Waterford are truly finding an emotional connection once again. June is once again forced to help with a hanging. One of the women June must help hang is the same Martha that gave June information on how to see her child.
Can June take much more? How much is this weighing on her soul? Watch the episode to see what I mean. Let me know your thoughts in the comments below. Til next week…
