One needs a suspension of disbelief. Nick is a procurer. There is adultery and despair. The birthmobile shows up as Janine is in labour. There is a compulsory and endless conspiracy and destructive conflict. Offred does a portentous voiceover. Ofwarren aka Janine has her baby girl. There is an air of menace. There are flashbacks to June giving birth. Why were people praying outside the hospital where June gave birth? The Commander has cold intent and bad intentions. Offred dreads his presence. What caused such ideological decay?
The wives do bizarre rituals to harp music. Is that a wife playing the harp? Aunt Lydia resurfaces. The nurse in June’s hospital said “praised be” - when did Gilead get its start? This was good. Apart from June, the maternity ward was empty. Giving birth in Gilead is ridic. Janine gives birth in a birthing chair and the baby is given to the wife at once. Janine cries over baby Angela. The wives outfits look green not blue. WTF is a Code Yellow FMC? It was shouted when a mad woman tries to steal June’s newborn. Janine had a son before. What happened to him? Offred has ill-advised over-confidence. What happened to Ofglen?
“Offred, would you like a cookie?”
“I am Ofglen.”
“Nine volumes on the history of falconry.”

“They love to be forgiving.”
“We’re 2 legged wombs.”
“There’s real coffee. Can you smell it?”
“The others are with god.”
Ward was recruited to SHIELD by Victoria Hand. Coulson runs the Resistance. This show is so contemptuous of its audience. Jemma, Mack and Trip babble. There is no moral culpability. David O’Hara does copious over-acting. This is pantomime. Daisy is so selfish. Where is Framework Skye? Coulson can control emotional responses.
“Question the narrative she was programmed with.”
“This is how movements die.”
“Betrayal will not be tolerated.”
Charlotte has a Baronet who wants to own her. Lydia has a vendetta against Margaret. Emily tries to get a job at Lydia’s but is dismissed as a rutting post. She’s dim. There are sad reveals about Margaret and Lydia’s past. A creepy Lord (Mcinnerny) who deflowered Charlotte now wants to deflower Lucy. Lydia sneers, culls are vile and this was mmmm. There are no mention of STDs.
“Circle of bliss.”
“Disorderly Houses Act.”
“You need to be his property.”
“Damn you for a stupid slut.”
“The sluice rat.”
