    Maybe spoilers lol?

    For clapping at the fundraiser?

    Not just that
    I loved her breakdown of how she’s tires of June continue to fight and i loved her calm scenes with her partner and with Luke.

    It’s a calm and nuanced performance, that is very welcoming in this show when everybody is acting loud.

    For Your Emmy Consideration:
    Matthew Rhys for "Perry Mason" as Leading Actor in a Drama Series
    Ethan Hawke for "The Good Lord Bird" as Leading Actor in a Limited Series, THE GOOD LORD BIRD in ALL CATEGORIES.
    Elizabeth Olsen and Kathryn Hahn for "Wandavision" as Leading and Supporting actress in Limited Series
    Tobias Menzies for "The Crown" as Supporting Actor in a Drama Series.
    MJ Rodriguez for "Pose" as Leading Actress in a Drama Series.

    SPOIlERS!! I put off watching Episode 3 for the longest of time knowing it’ll be torture porn. Elisabeth Moss directed the hell out of it but Bruce Miller’s script was terrible, and I don’t say this lightly. Moss’ ability to set the mood for the scenes imo were what stood out. I loved the way she chose to film the scene in the elevator in particular, building tension. However, everyone knows June isn’t about to die; not with her titanium thick plot armor. As a result, what should have been an anxiety inducing episode felt like a slog. I have often looked past the plot holes in the past, especially in Season 3, and even defended Heroic, but the last ten minutes of this episode were just ridiculous. Not to mention, how do they have so much security escorting June around her torture chamber but only have a driver and Aunt Lydia to escort the Handmaid’s towards the end? Not only do they kill four characters they spent no time giving dimensions to, they add that final scene to make you feel sorry for them. The whole name scenario was already done in a much better way in Season 2 and felt like a very cheap way to tug at the audience’s heartstrings. Additionally, I hate it when the show is internally inconsistent: Lydia says the Handmaid’s are more precious than ever and watches as the guard continuously shoots them? Ridiculous. One of the things that drew me to the show initially was how grounded it was. Even though Season 2 had it’s flaws, it still felt realistic. Season 3, and now Season 4 just seems aimlessly rehashing same plot points just to make the show run for longer than it needs to. The writers need to stop insulting the talent of everyone involved and the audience by giving us one good final season after this.

    This.

    And I assume they will continue to go up as the season airs.

    I’ve watched the first 2 episodes and really liked. The show is so beautifully shot and the acting is always great. But again, that end in episode 2 makes me wonder ”why??”.

    They really said every male character in this show has to be the absolute worst.

    This was a beautiful, toned-down episode that gave the spotlight to the characters and actors from whom we don’t get to see much. Madeline Brewer and Amanda Brugel were just wonderful. More praise for them, please! Elisabeth Moss, too, was brilliant. Absolutely loved this one.

    Wasn’t a fan of this week episode, but it had nice moments. Good to see more of Brewer.

    I’ve seen episode 3 just now and it’s sad to continuously repeat myself about the great quality of everything in this show but the writing. It’s so wrong, those last minutes were offensive.

    Episode 4 was great. Madeleine Brewer deserves more attention.

    Spoilers?

    Showed that they were aware of June’s extreme savior complex behavior and reigned it in by showing her she’s not this untouchable symbol of freedom. Makes the previous episodes seem more purposeful.

    This episode was heaps better than the previous ones. The writing was better, and I actually teared up watching the final scene between Janine and June. Also yay Rita, go get that sushi!
