    Darling, Ann Dowd has an Emmy for the show and Annoying Strahovski only got a nod for season 2.

    So? Things change with session, Clarke was the first actress to be nominated for GoT, but you consider Headey the most acclaimed one, so stop with the double standards. Moss and Strahovski are the two locks for season 3, period. Thank me next year.

    Even I, a huge Strahovski fan, would not call her a lock. Dowd is IMO ahead of her, not only because of material but overall respect. Dowd has worked with so many people, already won for this show and probably came close to repeating last year. I love Strahovski, and she has the tape, but so does Dowd. So idk.

    Oscar FYC - Lupita Nyong'o & Elisabeth Moss ("Us") - Best Actress & Supporting Actress. It must happen; otherwise the Tethered are coming.

    The argument with the overall respect and the fact that someone has worked with many people is really outdated and has never been accurate. Julia Roberts and Kevin Costner have worked with more people than Down and have bigger respect than her, it did not helped them…

    Strahovski is a lock, the only way she misses is if they, for some bizarre reason, snub all supporting actresses from THT, at least IMO.

    SPOILER

     

    The season finale was good. I loved the parts in which they went full circle. As a viewer you kind of prepare yourself that the third season is too early for June to escape Gilead, especially without Hanna, so the point wasn’t anticipating whether June will escape with them. Apparently, the next season will delve on how Gilead was built and its mechanizations, so I will be definitely watching it (which was promised for this season initially). Though, I have to say that overall this was the show’s worst season due to early lackluster episodes. In my opinion, only “Liars” and “Mayday” were the standouts.

    I LOVED this finale so much, it may even be my favorite episode of the series. Watching those 52 children arrive in Canada, along with Rita, and the shock on Moira’s face was just beautiful. Rita’s reaction made me tear up so much! Resistance finally came, even if in a small dose. June’s character arc took many unexpected turns, but I think this should be Moss’ submission. That scene where she tells Lawrence that she’s in power was very powerful. The score & cinematography were brilliant, as always. With Djawadi no longer in contention for GOT next year, it’s time to give Adam Taylor his due!

    This season as a whole was rocky, but ultimately satisfying seeing what it led to. Episodes 7-9 were a bit of a drag, and I get why we needed them, but not sure I completely liked how we got to June’s decision to get the children out. The first 5 were pretty amazing though. I don’t like how Emily’s storyline was completely… forgotten? As was Nick’s? They don’t entirely know how to balance all those characters. Fiennes and Dowd did his series-best work this season, Moss & Strahovski continued their stellar work, and Whitford was just darn amazing.

    Can’t wait for season 4!

    The finale was so beautiful. Powerful and beautiful. I cried in all the scenes of the last 30 minutes. I am a total mess right now. It had a few cringe lines and dialogues, but it was a terrific finale for a uneven season.

    I think it helps that the most popular episodes are the last few this season, while S2 the last few were the most divisive episodes.

    I agree with everyone else that, despite a pretty bad season overall, they kinda nailed it with that finale. I still have many, many issues with June’s characterization and evolution throughout the season and am ultimately not thrilled that they’ve seemingly settled on the role of “martyr” for the character, but it led to what was honestly the most gripping episode of the show since at least last year’s finale. It’s exhausting seeing June get so close to escaping and getting sucked back in. At least this time she was able to help some others along the way. The final ten minutes in Canada were proof of why the show’s exploration of Gilead is losing my interest and why the adjustment of the aslyum seekers in Canada is the most interesting part of the show.

    Unfortunately, the writers either haven’t figured that out or don’t care. Seeing Alexis Bledel in the finale reminded me of the beautiful work she did for the first few episodes of the season, but then what happened to her story? Samira Wiley is great, but I want to know more about Moira’s journey, especially given that she looks to be a leader for relief efforts. Even O-T Fagbenle had a moment to shine in the last few minutes, which gave signs of a story of a father who is completely powerless and desperate from afar, but it’s a story the show doesn’t seem committed to explore too in depth. This season was really disappointing in terms of giving us more Yvonne Strahovski excellence. When she was on screen, she was great, but she didn’t get the material that made her MVP of season two. Joseph Fiennes was good, but once that story hit its apex, it just kind of got stuck there. Christopher Meloni and Elizabeth Reaser came in to do….what exactly? Ann Dowd appeared for maybe thirty seconds in every episode and only got a chance to do something in the Lydia-centric episode. I get you’ve got Elisabeth Moss and she’s great, even when she’s working with next to nothing material-wise, but you’ve got plenty of other great actors in this ensemble to let June step out of the limelight, especially with a story so thin. You’ve got a killer ensemble but the writing failed them every step of the way this season.

    I didn’t like that season so much, but that episode was amazing. I have a problem with some things that happened, like how the man from Canada believe in Fred that easy? I mean, he could’ve been lying. And what is gonna happen with the Marthas, June and Janine? I think it would a pretty good decision (not just for them, but for the script in general) if they could’ve flyed with the other people in the plane. I’m very curious for what is gonna be season 4, but kinda afraid too.

    Great finale, uneven season. Just like Game of Thrones, the highs make it worth sticking around during the frustrating lows. The Handmaids Tale and Game of Thrones are more similar than fans of either would be willing to admit imo. In the sense that it gives 1-2 great episodes a season

    IMO it’s becoming more like The Walking Dead, but with a lot more highs.

    About Game of Thrones, the only seasons that gave just 1-2 great episodes that I could remember were season 5 and 8.

    hahaha

    “The Knight of the Seven Kingdoms” and “Long Night” are two of my favorite GOT episodes, so I can’t agree with you.

    “The Knight of the Seven Kingdoms” and “Long Night” are two of my favorite GOT episodes, so I can’t agree with you.

    So the masterpiece that was “Mayday” had “some cringe lines and dialogues”, but the dark mess that was “Long Night”, full of completely unbelievable moments (I always have a good laugh when I remember the ridiculous editing of the fighting scenes of Brienne, Jaime and Podrick with the Ice Zombies, you mentioned The Walking Dead, but they have NEVER had a ridiculous scene like that) and cheesy fan service scenes (the stupid Brann letting Theon die for no reason at all than redeeming his sins), and I don’t even want to start speaking about the sacrilege that they did with the Dothrakis, is amazing? Hahahahahahahaha.
