The moment Rebecca/Kiki's father recognised her in the airport and the both of them hugged... I have never started crying so quickly. What a great season finale filled with so many emotions
Oh man, I unexpectedly lost it when Rita landed safely in freedom and was reunited with Emily/OfGlen. It'll be interesting to see where things go next season for all the handmaids since I can't see how it won't be carnage/a lot of draconian punishments.
totes emotional and i was anxiety ridden the whole time watching it.
"Mrs. Waterford, under warrant from the ICC and the government of USA, I'm placing you under arrest"I FUCKING LOVE THIS SONG!!
I held my breathe the whole damn episode because I was expecting the baby to start crying and tips them off. I was mentally cursing them I feel so guilty lmao.
I started crying when the girls went to help June and then I cried more when kiki saw her dad and went to hug him and then my heart just broke completely at Luke's face expecting Hannah IM-
Awesome. The first half of this season left me thinking that the writers were bored with this show but, he last few episodes turned that around. Great finale!
Yep, I teared up.
Then I teared up some more.
Thennnnnn when Kiki was reunited with her father? Cue the waterworks.
Possibly one of the best episodes so far from this show.
"Where does it come from, this talent for ruthlessness? Seems so easy for them. It isn't about being right, or having the people or God on your side. It isn't anything that grandiose. In the end, victory goes to the hardest heart. " -says June, who does not have a hard heart at all, just a brave one.
"The universe doesn't have a balance sheet." Commander Lawrence"Yes it fucking does." -June
I had some issues with realism in this episode- I figured she'd stay behind for another season, so wasn't anticipating her getting away- but them finding her like that in the woods felt a bit much. And would all those handmaids give up their spot on the plane to accompany June on her suicidally risky distraction plan? Maybe, maybe not. Then they say Serena is going away because Fred claims she made June sleep with the driver? That felt thin. I know a lot of you want to see Serena rot, but I think the more interesting story is her out. Also so much of this episode was in the dark, just them running. So I didn't give this finale the best grade. But the ending, especially when Luke was looking for Hannah, was powerful.
When they carried June away at the end, she had her hand on her belly like a pregnant woman. Foreshadowing? I'm going to guess that she is saved from the wall because she is pregnant with Lawrence's baby, although I suspect it will be given to the new no-nonsense commander mentioned early in this episode.
When June decided to go back, I said "again?!". They almost repeated the season 2 finale :unamused:
:sob: Carefully, she's a heroine.
At this point I don't even care that we didn't find out anything about Gilead's military like I had expected, they were just dealt a major blow and that was always the more urgent goal, so the payoff was great.
It was also a great turn of events that in this episode Moira and Emily, who had endured so much before, ended up being the ones that offered some comfort to others. Humanity may suck most of the time but I'll be damned if we don't have the potential to rise to the challenge in times of great need like that.
I was so rooting for June to finally get out, I cried sooo hard. What a great episode! also I'm so fricking relieved that Serena finally got arrested, I couldn't stand her going free and still be able to see the baby.
Satisfying payoff to otherwise very slow-paced, sometimes just painfully boring season. June's journey starting as a victim to becoming a survivor and a fighter was portrayed very well. Cinematography was on point this season, too.
It's the exact same ending as season 2. The main character sends someone out of Gilead and she sacrifices her self. I don't get it. What's the point? My guess on season 4: the main character is punished/tortured the first two episodes and then she is sent to another family. Season finale in season 4 is that she either escapes with Hanna or that she stays in Gilead for another season - depending on whether the creators want to milk this cow even more or not. Just as season 2 and 3 has been.
Boring and bad, zooms on her face killed me. Story for 2 seasons streched to 4 seasons or more.
I cried so hard. My face was red and itchy by the end but oh man, what a great episode.
Now THAT is what I call an episode and what we’ve been waiting for all season. Amazing. Showstopping. Spectacular. Anxiety most of the time and sweaty palms. Cried floods when Moria saw just how many kids June had got out and I lost it when one of them was reunited with her dad. The heartbreak for Luke in hoping Hannah was there just so saddening and the fact she might of been there had the situation at the school not happened. Also so pleased Rita got out because she became a favourite so was rooting for her to make it. Very strong ending to lead into S4. “You’re not in charge. I AM” :raised_hands_tone1:
Too Woke.... but atleast Rita is free now
Praised be. Amazing episode. Satisfying.
I was underwhelmed with this episode and season finale. There were simply too many stupid things to enjoy it.Some of them include:
- Men amirite, they're all such scum. All of 'm!- "We can walk." Cause we kinda forgot we could walk.- "It's still rape" even though well... you had immunity but ok loophole.- Looking for a little girl house to house, bet they are the last house on the block then.- Let me slowly walk upstairs to get a gun when a frantic woman is trying to get the fuck out.- "I'm going back" again... Victim complex much June or just Stockholmed?- Amazing how far you can get without any plan whatsoever and the whole "corpse" on your ass
But the plane landing was nice, at least if you don't know Moira is around and the emotional moment with Rita wasn't ruined by the other one.
I’ve been watching this season completely apathetically (and who can blame me, really? When all the attention is on Serena and her delusional ass), but the finale was like a bunch to my stomach by Thor’s hammer. Oh damn. I cried and cried and cried. It left me so fecking happy and satisfied. I was so afraid June destroying her soul would’ve been all for nothing. Thankfully it wasn’t.
OMFG I HAVE NO WORDS FOR THIS FUCKING EPISODE. FUCK!
awesome this tv show is good
