The Handmaid's Tale - s01e05 - Faithful

Postby Tyler » Fri Apr 13, 2018 6:50 am

Serena Joy makes Offred a surprising proposition. Offred remembers the unconventional beginnings of her relationship with her husband.

Commander Waterford isn't a good guy after all :( and I keep finding it hard to hate Mrs. Waterford. It was totally wrong when she locked June in her room for 2 weeks, but she keeps having showing little things that makes me like her. Example: when she said it was terrible the way Handmaid's are treated and when she openly admits her husband is sterile. Just talking about these things are dangerous.

Staying with that, it seems like no one is actually faithful to The Eye and this new way of life, but they can't admit it to anyone but June. The Driver, Mr. and Mrs. Waterford, Ofglen, Ofsteven, the doctor, they all have talked about or done things that no one can ever know about, but June knows.

Did June want to have sex with the driver or is it a power play? Is Nick actually an eye, or is he just telling her that?

Interesting backstory on June and how her husband met. Homewrecker?

I was not prepared for Ofsteven (old Ofglen) to run over that guy's head.
