Offred is pregnant. It’s Nick’s obviously. When Serena Joy is calm, she has unhinged amiability. Handmaids are indispensable to Gilead - yet are treated badly. Marthas are being arrested. Serena Joy is strident and has consternation. The Commander is intemperate and guilty of escalating provocations and is uncowed.
Serena Joy spits hate at her husband; Gilead will be the ruin of them all. The Commander is not venerable and has no reasoned opinion. He wants to avail of side daddies and fishlettos but realises a bit too late, that true believers who matter are closer than he thinks. Nick shows demonstrativeness. Serena Joy has determinism and gives Offred a glimpse of her pink clad daughter, cue general discomfort. Offred screams and blubbers. Nobody has a decidedly positive opinion of the Commander.
Offred has vocal regret. Wives act in a determined fashion. There are no fevered paeans to Gilead. The parcel given to Offred is letters. Offred is dumb. Moira makes it to Canada. The Handmaids are in shock when Janine is to be salvaged. Ofglen gets beat on, after she reaches her limit. Luke and Moira reunite. Rita is entrusted with the letters. Offred heads off to an unknown future. This was goodish.
“You answer to me.”
“What is wrong with you?”
“Crazy evil bitch.”
“Rent the sacred covenant.”
“I’m in Boston, I think.”
“I hate stoneings.”
“The price of his love is sometimes high, but it must be paid.”
“There will be consequences, believe me.”
“I am in disgrace.”
“You know the law.”
The Primal Riddle
Lee sneers. There is bad acting and people are other than concerned. The Riddler overacts, badly. The plot is all grand improbability. Lee is into lifelong character assassination of Gordon. Selina holds people’s origins against them and is shoved out of a window. Nobody is appreciative. This was okay. Riddler and his stupid hat lurks. Barbara screeches. Butch lurks. Selina is the subject of a ‘Batman Returns’ homage.
“You don’t matter.”
“What good are friends anyway?”
“I found your performance to be wooden and unrealistic.”
