The Handmaid’s Tale 2×05 Review: Silence Sows Rebellion In “Seeds”
By Andrea Thompson
Where last week’s episode of The Handmaid’s Tale was unsettling and depressing, “Seeds” is bleak. June (Elisabeth Moss) has not only been returned to the Waterford house and had to conform all over again, all her coping mechanisms have been stripped from her. Except, that is, for Nick (Max Minghella), the lover who almost managed to free her. But in “Seeds,” the Waterfords do their damnedest to take him away from her too. If they can’t send him away, then in true Gilead fashion they’ll separate them in spirit.
