The Handmaid's Tale on HULU leaves us once again with no idea where the show is going. Episode 12 "Postpartum" followed up the highly emotional, very different episode "Holly" in which June gives birth to her daughter.

He brings us an episode in which things unfold and reveal the depths of the flaws in Gilead's society and the toll that it takes on all involved. "Postpartum" sets in motion...

6/27/2018
More
The Handmaid's Tale on HULU follows up one of their most intense and violent episodes with something entirely different. In S2/E11 - "Holly" we essentially get a one woman show as Elisabeth Moss absolutely puts one of the best performances of her run on The Handmaid's Tale. As June finds herself in the middle of nowhere, having just seen Hannah and Nick taken away, she steels herself and focuses on the two things she can control. Herself, and the baby. The only break in the Elisabeth Moss...
