The Handmaid’s Tale Season 4 Ep 9 | Agony of Defeat

The Handmaid’s Tale Season 4 Ep 9 reveals the agony of defeat! That’s right, we’re at such an awkward point for all the characters. There is only one episode left which means the season finale will leave a lot of open questions.


The Handmaid’s Tale Season 4 is coming to a close. Season 4 Ep 9,Progress, reveals the agony of defeat! So many of the characters are completely in defeat mode. They’re still figuring everything out and right now I’m not sure anything will be resolved. Make sure you watch our full reaction video.


Of course this episode all comes down to frigging Serena and Fred Waterford. Their actions have always rippled down to every single person they come in contact with. With the Putnams visit, Fred finally realizes that no one from Gilead will come for him. He either stays loyal and dies and maybe Serena will live or he betrays Gilead. Of course Fred goes with betray Gilead and that will now blow up this show even more.

The Waterford’s completely throw June into a downward spiral. This is a shame especially since June and Luke got a win with all the info that Nick gave June about Hannah. They finally know where she, know who is around, and have a full scope of what they’re dealing with to get Hannah out. But then of course Mark drops the Waterford’s flip on June which sends her into rage!

Nick and June’s meeting is so heartbreaking! It felt like a goodbye and definitely embodied so much of this episode. The agony of defeat truly rung loud with these two. I’d been frustrated by Nick’s insistence on protecting June through the first few episodes. It was mind boggling how he felt that keeping June in Gilead would keep her safe. Nick was so naive about how to keep June safe. He definitely redeemed himself with all of that info he got on Hannah. It didn’t seem necessary for him to hide the fact that he’s married. June would totally understand.

The Handmaid’s Tale threw so much at us in episode 9. I can’t see how much gets resolved in episode 10, but I can’t wait to see it. The Handmaid’s Tale Season 4 Ep9 showed us everyone’s agony of defeat! Share with me your thoughts for the season finale.
