What Happened Last Week

You can see our full review of last week’s episode here. But we’re also providing a quick recap below. 

Beware of spoilers from last week below! 

Last week was all about dragging us through intense worry about June, and the show even managed to almost convince viewers that June was going to die. 

Gilead sympathizers caught June and Luke, and they had a few heartbreaking scenes before they were torn apart. And then, instead of shipping June to Gilead as intended, they took a detour and brought her to Serena. This was intended to give Serena a chance to witness June’s death. 

But Serena was already in a desperate situation. Mr. Wheeler wasn’t allowing her any freedom — she couldn’t even leave the premises. And now she’s being pushed into marrying a man who is firmly entrenched in Gilead’s philosophy. So Serena decided to take her chances with June. She freed her and now they’re on the run together, as strange as that sounds. 

But that wasn’t the only plot twist of the week. Commander Putnam is now dead for raping Esther. Lawrence and Nick put together a late-night tribunal, found him guilty, and then Nick executed him in the middle of the day, in front of his wife. 

Wow. With so many twists happening, it’s hard to imagine what’s next.
