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

For the first three seasons, you might have been listening to Paul and Caroline as the “Daley Review”, faithfully analyzing each episode of The Handmaid’s Tale. Since January of 2020, they’ve decided to team up with popculturereview.com to form Pod Clubhouse and continue reviewing the show under that banner. You’ll get the same analysis and the same repartee only a married couple can give, just under a new name: Escaping Gilead! The Handmaid’s Tale Podcast!
