I think so. Not being ageist, but we’re not really used to seeing, or at least I’m not, such ages’ love scenes, especially for women. But for the most part it was Ann Dowd, she just exudes innocence lol.
You haven’t seen the True Detective season 1 finale then!

I love Ann Dowd, and she was deserving to win for both Season 1 & 2. That being said, I thought the much-hyped backstory for Aunt Lydia was somewhat underwhelming. Dowd sold all of it beautifully (and this will be her tape), but I guess I wanted more.July 11, 2019 at 7:24 am #1202970619
Darlings, Ann Dowd is hot.

This episode was… underwhelming. This wasn’t the backstory episode Aunt Lydia deserved. The story itself was fine, and I guess it makes sense that Lydia’s backstory wasn’t something crazy, but the pacing was so off in this episode, it was kind of crazy. They should have devoted an entire episode to Lydia, and placed it after episode 4, when she beat Janine. It felt so out of place here, and had no effect whatsoever on the current storyline. Ann Dowd was absolutely flawless though and the only reason why it was watchable. She’s such a phenomenal actress; she can convey so many emotions with one small facial expression.
The current-day storyline was a bit ridiculous. I really didn’t understand that final scene, it seemed like June had orchestrated it all. Poor Janine, she can’t catch a break. And where’s some material for Madeline Brewer?! I hated the camera placement when it followed Ofmatthew as she was pointing her gun to different people. It looked like the gun was glued to the screen, lol.
Step it up, Handmaid’s!

The last scene in the latest episode was pretty cheesy.July 14, 2019 at 7:53 am #1202974535
I’m glad the critics are sanctioning these filler episodes. They want better ratings then MOVE THE PLOT.July 14, 2019 at 9:22 am #1202974620
I don’t know why I’m still watching this show. The same things keep happening and there doesn’t seem to be any further plot progression. Everything about this season feels like filler. Hated this week’s episode. The writers introduced a new character this season in order to take that same character away. Okay cool. Now what?
The show would have been more exciting if they allowed June to escape into Canada and we focused on her adjusting to normal society while dealing with the emotions of leaving her older child behind in order to save her youngest one. Just saying
