  1. I wonder if we'll see more of June's mom or Omar and his family. I'd like to hope they're still alive.

  3. I am finding season 2 riveting and brilliantly made TV as usual, but emotionally it is a slog to get through and I’m not sure if I’ll manage if it ends up being 4+ seasons of hopelessness. I feel like with the type of show it is, it would be nice to draw to some sort of conclusion (Positive or negative) by the end of season 3 or it’ll start to go round in circles, but given the success I can’t see them ending it so soon.

  4. I agree with you. It would be interesting to see June leaving with the baby or dying while trying.
    The show could then be about Canada and other countries try to destroy Gilead.

  5. That episode was utterly compelling. Elizabeth Moss is phenomenal as always, but Yvonne Strahovski was superb as well.
     
  6. I don't know if this is the thread (please politely tell me off if it is), but as someone who agrees with the article about the gratuitous violence depicted on the show, but who's still interested in Margaret Atwood's novels, which one's should I read? I'd prefer one's that aren't as emotionally draining as this show is. I understand that her books may not make me feel like the show does, them being different mediums and all, but I just thought I'd say it anyway.
     
  7. The book itself is nowhere near as painful and agonising as tv show. If you haven't read any Atwood's books I'd start with Oryx and Crake.
     
  8. Hmmmm, I don't know how I feel about this season yet.

    I though the ending of episode 3 felt way too cruel and then episode 4 felt kind of lifeless. I have yet to watch episode 5. I get what they're trying to do but I'm not sure how I feel about it yet. It really depends on what this season is working towards. I echo the idea that I don't want them to do too many seasons of this show.
     
  9. Episode 6 definitely starts to make it clear where the story is going. The ending is fantastic. And there are even some brief moments of levity throughout (but also some crushing sadness).
