    The Handmaid’s Tale -- “The Wilderness” - Episode 410 -- "Sure, Fred. We can Zoom." June draws on all her resources and relationships, risking everything to ensure her own kind of justice.

    That's it for this year, Handmaid's fans and instead of going out with a bang, Fred chose whistle instead (but he may have wanted to reconsider that later). In this podcast, Paul and Caroline have invited Mike, the third co-owner of Pod Clubhouse and a Handmaid's expert in his own right, to sit in and pinch-hit for an ailing Paul. Also in this podcast, creator of The Handmaid's Tale and writer of this episode, Bruce Miller, drops by and answers some questions about the creation of this episode.

    In this episode, the Pod Clubhouse triple-headed host-monster also talks about:



    * Why make a trade for 22 women and not even bring up Hannah?

    * Can a "good mother" just put things like June's history with Fred in the past and move on?

    * What is a "good mother" anyway?

    * Luke's risky decision to send June and Nichole into Nick's arms for the chance of more information about Hannah

    * The Waterfords' decision to take a deal with the US government in exchange for leniency

    * Janine's continued evolution into a strong person and leader back in Gilead

    Escaping Gilead! The Handmaid's Tale Podcast (Episode 408)

    PHOTO EMBARGOED FOR USE UNTIL June 2nd, 2021. The Handmaid’s Tale -- “Testimony” - Episode 408 -- June confronts Fred and Serena in court and challenges Emily to face a painful reminder of her Gilead past. Lawrence presents Aunt Lydia with a newly captured, familiar Handmaid. Moira (Samira Wiley), June (Elisabeth Moss), and Emily (Alexis Bledel), shown. (Photo by: Sophie Giraud/Hulu)



    This week we chat about:



    * June's style of "healing" and whether or not she's playing with fire trying to rile up the former handmaids

    * The previously thought unlikely source of support the Waterfords found in Canada

    * Lydia's struggle to remain relevant

    * And pretty much everything else in the episode

    Escaping Gilead! The Handmaid's Tale Podcast (Episode 407)

    The Handmaid’s Tale -- “Home” - Episode 407 -- June struggles with her newfound freedom, reuniting with loved ones and confronting her nemesis, Serena. June (Elisabeth Moss) and Serena Waterford (Yvonne Strahovski), shown. (Photo by: Sophie Giraud/Hulu)



    Man, this scene felt good to watch. June has had a pretty frustrating last few weeks, what with getting shot, scaring her daughter, killing her friends, and getting bombed, June has needed a personal "win". Angel Flight is great and all for Rita and the 85 kids - but none of them were HER kid. Sure, she got out of Gilead, but she has unfinished business there. In this scene, she gets to take a little something just for her and I for one (Paul) am glad she took it. In fact, I'm surprised she didn't lash out and strike Serena. After all, Serena established during June's pregnancy that a little hitting was perfectly OK. I just hope that this bit of completely justifiable catharsis doesn't come back to bite June.



    Paul and Caroline also talk about:



    * June's adjustment to life in Canada

    * The Waterfords' new uneasy alliance

    * The "love" scene with Luke

    Escaping Gilead! The Handmaid's Tale Podcast (Episode 406)

    The Handmaid’s Tale -- “Vows” - Episode 406 -- After a shocking reunion with a dear friend, June contemplates the possibility of freedom, and confronts the unfulfilled promises she’s made to herself and to Luke. Luke (O-T Fagbenle) and June (Elisabeth Moss), shown. (Photo by: Sophie Giraud/Hulu)



    Last week, Caroline remarked how the pace of this season was moving MUCH faster than usual and that she expected June to be flying the space shuttle in this episode. This Great Lakes hauler wasn't the space shuttle, but Caroline still gets full points for June's hare-brained attempt to steal and pilot a lifeboat back to Gilead. Jeez. That statement is almost too ironic to type.



    Anyway, in short, Moira was real, not a dream. Her girlfriend is a hard-ass with a nametag-maker for those just-in-case scenarios (like intelligence assets stowing away on your boat). June needs a CAT scan. Hopefully Luke cleaned up his house before coming to the dock.



    We talk about this stuff, and:



    * June's irrational, concussion-fueled insistence that she returns to Gilead for Hannah

    * Moira's hard-hitting tactics to keep June by her side and heading north

    * Luke's hands-off approach to escorting June off the boat

    Escaping Gilead! The Handmaid's Tale Podcast (Episode 405)

    The Handmaid's Tale - "Chicago" - Episode 405 - June seeks out more active rebels in the Chicago war zone, while Janine tries to help her fit in with their new group of survivors. Moira goes on her first field aid mission. Janine (Madeline Brewer) and June (Elisabeth Moss), shown. (Photo by: Sophie Giraud/Hulu)



    Janine made fast friends in Chicago, but June had trouble being content with her new surroundings in "Chicago". Unlike the observant, strategic thinker we met in Season 1, June has become more impatient and rash in her decision-making. Case in point, this week June essentially lost patience with Steven (Janine's new boyfriend) and his unwillingness to pointlessly engage a superior force with his rag-tag, semi-armed squad of civilians. What a wimp! And just like that, June wants to jump ship for a more aggressive chapter in the Resistance. She never got the chance to find them though as wheelings and dealings back in Gilead-proper sent bombers headed straight for her.



    Paul and Caroline chat up these plot points, as well as:



    * Aunt Lydia's new ambitious streak

    * Commander Lawrence's willingness to compromise anything to ensure his survival and advancement

    * Janine ongoing quest for a normal life in an anything but normal world

Great Show!

Happy to find a good THT podcast. Good content with some comic relief! Go back and cover S1-2.

This is the breakdown you need

I race through each broadcast because of the tension, the drama and the shock I want from the show. Having this podcast to slow me down and breakdown the episode to think about the events is great and really adds to my enjoyment of the show. Caroline and Paul are so fun to listen to!
All the podcasts on Pod Clubhouse are fantastic - something for everyone.
