Handmaid's Tale Season 4

Season 4 trailer is out! No specific date release date yet, just 2021. 

 

On a related note, I recently binge rewatched season 3 with a friend, and I gotta say I found it way better the second time around. I think the first problem (for me at least) was that the trailers for season 3 made it seem like we were going to get a revolution, so the season didn't really match my expectations. The second problem was having to wait a week between episodes really made it feel like it was dragging on. Like, really? Another episode trying to get me to feel sympathy for Serena? That's never going to happen! Where's my revolution! But on the rewatch I knew what to expect and I didn't have to wait. It didn't feel slow at all, and I actually enjoyed the season a lot. Though to be fair I tend to be more forgiving to June than most so maybe it's just me.

Anyway what do people think of the trailer?

I just saw this @TuringMachine . I really liked the third season. But didn't enjoy the second as much. I had watched the first season when it originally came out, but binged the 2nd and 3rd back to back within the past year. I found working my way through slow, and then it got super exciting at the end! I am definitely excited for the next season, looks good!

I read the original novel years and years ago. Have you read the second yet? I've been conflicted about reading it while in the middle of the show. 

Blessed be the FruitLoops!

I just read the second book and was surprised how much I enjoyed it!

A very slight spoiler for the mood/emotion at the end of the book, no actual facts mentioned:

Mostly I was scared that it would end sadly. But while the circumstances hindered something that you would call a truly happy end, it very much was a hopefull end and gave me a good feeling of closure.

Y'all..... my pup needed to wear a cone for a few days and then one day she laid down on our red blanket and I got inspired:

Ok, I watched the first 2 episodes of Season 4.

Serena, we got your blood work back, congratulations!?? Interesting development.

Just finished reading the book. Didn’t realize how much further the show goes.

I’ve only watched the first episode ... I was asking my husband why the name Esther Keyes was so familiar - we both agreed that she wasn’t in the previous seasons (it’s been so long I wondered if she might have been a minor character). Then I realised it’s from here - one of the Bates boys is dating a girl from a fundie family and her name is Esther Keyes 😆

I’ve caught up and I’ve finished watching all 3 episodes. I’m scared that season 4 will be like season 2 with gratuitous torture porn. Ugh. The last episode was VERY hard to watch, and the ending had me in shock. If that’s what they’re willing to put at the start of the season ... what are we in for?

I really like Esthers character though the scene where she gets into June’s bed was... a choice. But the “have you been poisoning him” thing made my laugh.

Nick keeps saying how he’s trying to keep her alive but what exactly has he done? It seems like they were gonna keep her alive anyway. Also he didn’t do shit for Holly. I’m also surprised Lydia was ok with the Hannah thing. Seems pretty out of character for her to be ok with a child being harmed. 
 

That Serena thing... ugh. I don’t like how sympathetic Tuello is to her. I don’t want her to have any access to holly. Holly is not her daughter. She’s her kidnapping victim.  And so is Fred not infertile? Does that mean he could be Hollys bio dad?

Oh, interesting thought about the possibility of Fred being Holly/Nicole’s dad! 
June is annoying me this season. And I feel like they are blowing by some good possible plot lines by getting rid of all those handmaid’s, locking up little Mrs Keyes, bypassing the breeding farm ....

I’ve wondered why they instituted this whole Handmaids living with the Commander’s families to begin with. They wouldn’t even need the ceremony. Just have the Handmaids live in a dorm and when they’re about to ovulate just do artificial insemination. Take away the personal relationship that often lead to trouble.
