This is the episode where June finally gets to see the Waterfords up close and in personal. She gives her testimony against them. June has been looking forward to this. She makes this known in her group and really encourages them to get in touch with their vengeance.

There is the whole thing with Emily and the Aunt. Emily definitely needed June to expose this Aunt to her. All the aunt wanting was for Emily to figure her, but this woman actively wronged Emily. She didn’t have to turn Emily in and she still did it. This Aunt didn’t deserve Emily’s forgiveness. She did what she did and it only feels like she wants her forgiveness now so she can move on.
Mandi and Dan love TV and Movies!
Finally, finally we see what happened to Janine! I knew she wasn’t dead, but Commander Lawrence basically gave her to Aunt Lydia. I don’t agree with Commander Lawrence thinking that Aunt Lydia needs someone to take her rage out on. That’s not true. Aunt Lydia was asked to turn women who they held against there role into subservient women. They took their children, killed their husbands, but now the new recruits are different. They’ve grown up in Gilead and some probably see this as their “duty.”
The Handmaid’s Tale season 4 ep8 really showed us just where all these characters are! Gilead has some serious enemies in June and the former Handmaid’s. What did you all think of this episode?
