Things people really need to talk about more: Lets just get this out of the way right off the bat. In the last few months, I've had over 30 women ranging from rail thin to extra large naked in my bed and I would routinely ask them to hug their knees.
My first thought at the end of this season was outright relief. This show is wearying in a way few others are, and not merely because of the painful viscerality of its subject matter. Rescue her first daughter? Obtain her revenge on Commander Waterford?
None of this tracked as anything but a way to keep the show moving forward, even at the expense of what had made June most interesting earlier on. He was scarier when he insinuatingly tried to play Scrabble with his slave; that dissonance felt like a more provocative statement about evil.

Commander Waterford turning his wife over to the authorities for reading a Scripture passage felt more like the wakeup call Serena needed to finally, finally, understand that Gilead is not and never has been for her — nor for people of actual faith.
As June tried to drive home at the beginning of this episode, Eden may have been the only actual believer in the house, and Gilead still found a way to punish her for it. So I was surprised that I liked the finale as much as I did — until that punishingly dark final act.
Which I also mean literally; I could barely see what was going on! How many times she and we can live through that same loop? Because there have been so many moments when it would make sense to say goodbye to a character only to have them come back and stretch out their story.
But at this point, do I need to see more of the Waterfords, for instance? Conversely, I actually wish we got more time with Joseph, and not just because Whitford turned in such a fascinating performance. As a sympathetic potential ally to June—and as a figure who seems likelier to reward psychological probing than good old Commander Waterford—I think he has more to give in season 3.
But over two years, we have seen June bear the utmost extreme of psychological burden, and end up, after much suffering, in a place of reckless willingness to risk it all.
But, if anything, it seemed almost too smoothly professional for a show whose story is so painful. Am I just a crank for feeling some gravity has been lost? Two moments stick out to me in which the show contracted a serious case of false equivalence as it tried to be more timely: It would be great to see the show broaden its scope and solidify its own mythology going forward, especially regarding the role of Canada and American refugees.
If this show is going to go on until further notice, it might as well build a world that makes sense.
