'Motherland' (508) recap

We have just watched episode 8 of season 5 of The Handmaid’s Tale. This season is going too fast. This episode is called 'Motherland' and it was written by Yahlin Chang, and directed by Natalia Leite: June (Elisabeth Moss) receives an extremely tempting offer from a surprise visitor. Meanwhile, Serena Joy (Yvonne Strahovski) finally hits rock bottom and begins a desperate search for allies…any allies. This episode gives us so much of that world-building that we know and love, and some revealing moments into Lawrence. Join us for a deep dive and some wild predictions. Don't forget to tell us your own thoughts and theories. Use the hashtag #EyesOnGilead (Find us at: @anythingbutfifi / @NatalieHambly / @HaideeIreland / @Sana_Qadar)
