The Handmaid’s Tale 2×03 Review: Past Is Prologue And Burden In “Baggage”
By Andrea Thompson
After a very strong premiere, The Handmaid’s Tale once again shows its limitations in the episode “Baggage.” June (Elisabeth Moss) continues trying to build a life, and seems to be succeeding. But she can’t stay in her tenuous hiding place forever, so she is forced to once again put her trust in strangers and attempt to actively flee to Canada, and it’s finally revealed she was hiding out at the Boston Globe. It’s especially touching, as it makes her makeshift home not only a sanctuary, but one of the last bastions of freedom which was destroyed, but nevertheless still provides a safe harbor.
