Adapted from Margaret Atwood’s acclaimed novel, this is the story of life in the dystopia of Gilead, a totalitarian society in what was formerly part of the United States. Facing environmental disasters and a plunging birthrate, Gilead is ruled by a twisted religious fundamentalism that treats women as property of the state. As one of the few remaining fertile women, Offred (Elisabeth Moss) is a Handmaid in the Commander's household, one of the caste of women forced into sexual servitude as a last desperate attempt to repopulate a devastated world.

Two words sum up this episode....Fuck that....and no truer words have been spoken. Raise a fist. Say a silent prayer. Fight, however you can. We're with you. Wherever you are.

This episode made me reflect quite a bit about speech and its freedom. From the letters to the speech that led to Gilead, which speech is free, and which is not?
