The Handmaid's Tale - Women's Work - Advance Preview

The Handmaid’s Tale “Women’s Work” was directed by Kari Skogland and the teleplay was by Nina Fiore and John Herrera. Fiore and Herrera’s other credits include Blood Drive, The Vampire Diaries and Alphas, and both move up from executive story editor on the show. I swear this show gets better with each episode. Relationships are changing in this episode, and I think this might be Yvonne Strahovski’s (Serena) most amazing performance yet.

The episode starts with a little Motown from the Commodores and ends with an acapella version of a Bay City Rollers song – well originally Dusty Springfield... Serena makes a surprising confession to June (Elisabeth Moss). June pays Serena a compliment. Not everyone is as happy as they should be when Fred (Joseph Fiennes) returns.

Serena leaves June a present. Rita (Amanda Brugel) continues to be unimpressed by Eden (Sydney Sweeney). Nick’s (Max Minghella) attempts at being a good husband fall short of Eden’s expectations. I begin to wonder if anybody every uses “Praise Be” unironically.

Janine (Madeline Brewer) is still happy to be back, and Emily (Alexis Bledel) is still angry. Janine asks June for a favor, June asks Serena for a favor, and Serena asks Fred for a favor. Some are granted and some are not. Serena continues to break rules. Fred resorts to some surprising behavior. Eden makes a discovery. Janine surprises everyone.

I can’t wait to see what happens next! This episode drops on Hulu on June 6th!

A few dialogue teases: 

May the force be with you.
This is the new normal and an offence to God.
She seems pretty fucking happy.
I just thought the sequel was better.
I’m going to need to examine her.
God give me strength.
I asked you to be my conduit, not my voice.
You sound just like one of them.
Character one: She’s trying. Character Two: Yeah. She is.
Men are afraid that women will laugh at them. Women are afraid that men will kill them.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
