Silly handmaid, taking too fucking long to shot Aunt Lydia and the thugs called Guards.

Powerful image: June standing astride the trail of blood.

Watching last weeks episode, in the hospital. Getting a bit weird!

This and previous episode just reminds you of the violence around any theocracy. When you are on gawd’s work any foulness is easily justified.

Ha! After the “Ceremony” with Cmdr Lawrence June tells Waterford “At least it wasn’t you!” He didn’t like it either.

Dunno, this season seems shapeless to me, tho it appears that Lawrence, to save his wife, will get them and some kids out of Gilead. Series should have ended in Season 2 I think.

“The Testaments” available from Amazon.

Some lucky people got them a week early.

Will definitely order a copy!

Reading Atwood’s “The Testaments.”

Whoo boy—how they made Aunts!

And—Who in Gilead was helping the underground railway smuggle Gilead refugees into Canada? Hmmmm!

Finished Testaments. . .hmmm. someway not as intense as The Handmaid’s Tale, sometimes more intense. Disturbing.

It suffers by comparison to the Tale, I think. Worth reading tho.
