The Handmaid’s Tale 2.11 FAQ
What’s it called?
Teleplay is credited to Kira Snyder (“Pacific Rim: Uprising”)
What says Hulu?
“Offred faces a grueling challenge as she recalls her life as a mother. Serena Joy and the Commander deal with the fallout of their actions against Offred.”
How does this episode start?
Right where the last episode ended, with June alone in the snow. “I’m sorry there’s so much pain in this story,” she offers.
Does this episode offer flashbacks?
Is Serena caressing a matchbook and daydreaming about Waikiki?
Not this week. But maybe that matchbook is on her mind; she’s as pissed as we’ve ever seen her.
What’s doing with Emily/Ofglen and Janine/Ofwarren?
Janine appears only in flashback.
Does this episode offer visits to Little America?
It does not.
The big news?
Remember that episode of “24” in which Kim Bauer was menaced by a cougar and Kevin Dillon? This episode is better than that one.
What else is Hulu not telling us?
Alaska, we learn, is still part of America!
The radio. The shotgun shell. The Waterfords. The tongue. “I’m not leaving here without my baby.” “You are such a fucking idiot.” “When did you become such a bitch?”
What’s not so great?
If you’re curious to know what’s going on with Emily, you’ll not find much on that matter.
How does it end, spoiler boy?
With Bruce Springsteen.
11:59 p.m. Tuesday. Hulu.
