Ideal dress for anyone wanting to channel their inner Serena Joy grin

I'm giving this another outing on this thread grin

Invisimamma Sun 11-Aug-19 20:24:38

Praise be. That dress looks like something SJ would wear.

OriginofSpecies Sun 11-Aug-19 20:26:23

Yes, I wonder if The Handmaid's Tale inspired the design?

Hello all... I put this on the last thread...

Now isn't that funny.
I have always been a bit colour blind with blues and greens and I see the wives dresses on the programme as teal, and nothing like the colour on that link. Style is spot on !

Crinkle77 Sun 11-Aug-19 20:54:48

Signing in for tonight's ep.

HeatedRollers Sun 11-Aug-19 20:59:43

I see teal also. I see the Martha's as not wearing green.

Roussette Sun 11-Aug-19 21:03:21

Looking forward to this.... the commentator has just said 'June is ready to strike back'

theGirlWithManyFaces Sun 11-Aug-19 21:10:54

That shuffle she is doing reminds me of the walking dead.

TheBrilloPad Sun 11-Aug-19 21:21:18

Why is she walking like that? What have I missed/forgotten?! I know she was confined to the hospital and kneeling 24/7 last week, but she seemed physically fine then, I thought??

Wavyheaded Sun 11-Aug-19 21:23:19

Why do the Waterfords continue to let her talk to them like that?

CaptainMyCaptain Sun 11-Aug-19 21:30:00

Methods to ensure virility??

theGirlWithManyFaces Sun 11-Aug-19 21:30:30

I find it odd that Fred speaks about commander Lawrence not being able to run a household after he has the whole issue with Eden and then June being "kidnapped" - surely rich of him to make digs like that

I don't know why June is so indulged. She was the only handmaid looking up during that scene. Aunt Lydia would have whacked her on the back of the head for that in the book. It's actually annoying me a bit how far they have gone from the sense of constant danger the book draws. The handmaid tells her they are constantly being watched yet June doesn't face consequences to her minor infractions.

TheSpottedZebra Sun 11-Aug-19 21:33:37

What's with the ensure virility? Observed ceremonies?

And will June be forced to 'voluntarily' wear the ring?

TheSpottedZebra Sun 11-Aug-19 21:35:39

Brillo she's walking like that as she wa confined to the hospital room, mostly on her knees (to pray) whilst the dead handmaid gestated her child.

TeaStory Sun 11-Aug-19 21:38:09

Oh no. No no no.

I’m finding it hard to watch.

getupgonow Sun 11-Aug-19 21:38:08

Oh no - so they're going to watch while she's raped??

BuzzShitbagBobbly Sun 11-Aug-19 21:46:50

How can Lawrence be such a bloody wuss when he invented the concept of handmaids and ceremonies etc?

Invisimamma Sun 11-Aug-19 21:48:14

Would he physically be able to go through with the ceremony? He appears obviously repulsed by the idea of it and his wife is weeping behind a curtain.

BuzzShitbagBobbly Sun 11-Aug-19 21:48:53

This rape seems a lot more awful than when it was the Waterfords despite the fact they treated June worse.

Maybe it's the humanity of it?

BuzzShitbagBobbly Sun 11-Aug-19 21:54:46

Loved June's retort to Waterford!

IfIShouldFallFromGraceWithGod Sun 11-Aug-19 21:54:55

Fred is a bastard. I hope he suffers

WellWhoKnew Sun 11-Aug-19 21:55:49

A few continuity errors with June's walking this episode smile
