A few belated theories

Thanks for loving THT as much as I do. I discovered your podcast halfway through season 3 and listened avidly till the end of the season. Then I decided to immediately watch it all from the start and listen to your podcast from the beginning (season 2). So good!!
I have a theory about Eleanor’s death. It’s mentioned that the medication she needed had become impossible to get a week or so before her death leading to her unstable condition. This made her a liability, not only to June’s plan, but also to Joseph’s safety. So I’m theorizing that Joseph “provided” the drugs from his stash of contraband (remember the contraception he offers June?). We are never told what it was that she took but we know her drugs weren’t available. I think her left her alone for what seemed to be overnight so she could die.
Also, the bridge Fred and Serena go over looked like severed fingers to me!! Nice touch.
Can’t wait till season 4 of the podcast. I hope you read this before then though.

Found this late but glad I did

I only discovered this podcast after the last episode so yes I have basically binge listened! It was good to hear what others thought of the show. I read the Handmaid’s Tale in the early nineties and it was a set text in the English department I taught in for Year 10! And now this series, and all it’s “stuff” so much to discuss so thank you. A couple of questions: how did they get all those backpacks, reading is not allowed but numbers are?, why didn’t June and Emily take off their white caps when they were escaping? Winslow sealed his fate when he said “my children” so yes they definitely did not account for mother love (a Lawerence admission). Looking forward to the book club! Thank you again!
