The Handmaid's Tale - First Blood - Advance Preview

Share on Reddit

The Handmaid’s Tale “First Blood” was directed by Mike Barker with the teleplay by Eric Tuchman. The action is centered primarily on the new dynamics in the Waterford household. The flashbacks concern Serena (Yvonne Strahovski) and Fred (Joseph Fiennes). Strahovski and Elisabeth Moss (June/Offred) both give wonderful performances. In fact, you almost feel sorry for Serena…

Serena is surprisingly kind to June. June and Serena share an awkward evening. June is surprisingly kind to Serena.  June is very surprised.

Aunt Lydia (Ann Dowd) and Fred work together on a project. Aunt Lydia has sympathy for Fred’s position, but cautions him. Fred is under pressure at work. June has two midnight encounters with Fred. June and Fred have a new secret.

Be prepared for some strong language and a heavy dose of irony in the flashbacks to Serena and Fred.

Eden (Sydney Sweeney) tries to find her own place. June and Eden have an awkward conversation. Eden may be more dangerous than she looks. Alma (Nina Kiri) makes a statement.

The most unsexy foreplay ever – followed by the least sexy sex.

This episode premieres on May 23. Look for a shocking ending! And I know that the music I hear at the end of the episode isn't always what appears in the final version, so I'll spoil the final song because it was awesome (and perfect) - Oh Bondage! Up Yours! by X Ray Spex.

Some dialogue teasers….

This baby needs harmony.
Get going. You want to help? Help.
You scared me.
We will not allow a terrorist to silence us.
She has a right to speak! This is America!
Don’t scold or lecture.
I can’t lose you too.
I know what God expects of me.
What is her bedtime, anyway?
Stop it and be a man.
You didn’t back down. You’re incredible.
It must be hard to leave your family.
Maybe we were there at the same time. Serendipity.
