SPOILERS AHEAD - you've been warned
I'm pissed. What have they done to our hero June? Why have they done this??
She raped Luke. I know men can be raped my women and the specifics of if are quite complex, but why in the hell would June rape Luke??? She was repeatedly raped in Gilead, she was used as a human incubator, she was tortured... Why would she take it on Luke of all people?
I get that she's been through a lot of trauma and protagonists don't have to be perfect, but c'mon! I didn't see the character getting to this point. It felt completely out of the blue. She yealled at Serena in one of the most cathartic scenes in the show and then she raped her husband. Like, what the actual fuck? Yealling at someone she hates got her horny?? It makes no sense to me...
Someone said in another thread about the show that a man is writing this season. I guess it makes sense then... The show is mostly about the abuse women suffer in the hands of men, so now the male writer might want to do a turn tables of sorts, I don't know. I mean, this thing is so weird. I just don't think it's believable. That's not something June would do. What has this show become?
And the final scence where she's describing Serena's behavior while they show her, Luke and Nichole playing outside. She says "She's abusive, manipulative and narcisistic. She will beat you, she will rape you" etc. They clearly wanted to show how she was actually talking about herself. So ridiculous!
Do you guys feel the same way? I can't be the only one upset about this episode.
