The Handmaid’s Tale 3×09 Review: June Deteriorates, but the Show Slightly Improves
By Andrea Thompson
In the beginning of “Heroic,” it appears as if The Handmaid’s Tale has recovered something which seemed irretrievably lost: a sense of humor. It’s certainly hard not to feel amused while Belinda Carlisle’s “Heaven is a Place on Earth” plays during opening credits. Such wicked games don’t last long though, as the song abruptly cuts out to reveal Ofmatthew (Ashleigh LaThrop) in a hospital bed. June (Elisabeth Moss) silently assures us we’ll hear the song again. I did not, but then, that’s not really the point here.
