Anyone else really excited about The Handmaid's Tale??

The Handmaid's Tale, a show that as we all know is clearly for gender critical women (sorry Margaret Atwood :P), just had its season 4 finale and can I just say....we need more justice like that. Fuck the whole "forgive and forget" / "let it go" shit - half the time the people sanctimoniously preaching that are abusers themselves who want to be let off the hook.

Completely agree. I was so annoyed with Moira's character this season after June got back. She would be the one to understand her and sympathize.

Also I can't believe the finale got such a big laugh from me - Fred's reaction to June and Nick kissing.

Moira is further along in her healing. Plus, she never was a handmaid, right? She was sent straight to Jezebel's after her escape attempt. So, her trauma and the crimes committed against her were different. She was raped but she didn't have to be part of a household or or get pregnant or be separated from children etc

Not like there's a hierarchy of suffering but healing is harder in complicated cases like June and Emily's where there has been sustained use of torture, mutilation and separation from children. Plus the whole emotional torture of being expected to be a household member too.

Moira is likely messed up too but I can believe she'd be able to somewhat move on.

Good old testament REVENGE. We need more of it. I hope season 5 is dropping soon with even more bloody violence against the rapists the enablers the murderers.

I haven't watched it because I'm afraid of being triggered, but agreed: those who preach for forgiveness (as in deny and forget) often don't want to be held accountable themselves, or are too scared to hold others accountable.

I really did not like the mob justice that Fred got. I was confused with Luke at the end and the 5 more minutes... is June going to be on the lamb again? So weird the meeting with Nick too. I was thinking Luke implied to trade Nichole for Hanna. And what about Lawrence's wife, no more mention of her? I do wonder about Serena, i really do hope she writes that book.
