The Handmaid’s Tale 2×08 Review: Gilead’s Women Try To Save A Life In “Women’s Work”
By Andrea Thompson
The Handmaid’s Tale crossed a major milestone in the episode “Women’s Work” by getting me to feel sympathy for Serena (Yvonne Strahovski). She’d been fleshed out in previous episodes, but the the reaction I was obviously intended to have never came. She knew what she was doing the entire time, and what would happen. Any consequences are of her own making, and any regrets stem from pure selfishness.
