Blessed be the fruit, friends, because The Handmaid’s Tale season 3 has finally found its direction and June is about to do the damn thing.
man Marthas have visited the Lawrence household to pledge their support for June’s batsh*t crazy plan to get children out of Gilead, Commander Lawrence is on board and THINGS MIGHT ACTUALLY HAPPEN.

Through episode 10, we learned a lot more about Fred’s icky attempts to gain himself more power by sucking up to Commander Winslow: He’s put in place a bunch of new regulations and they’re slowly rolling out the veils and ‘rings’ the handmaids in DC wear (they’re ‘voluntary’, apparently. Yeah right).
