The 100 Best Movies on Amazon Prime Right Now, Ice Cube in Hot Water After Revealing He’s Working With the Trump Administration, “He has actually hurt us way more than Donald Trump,” he says of Biden in a new, Kevin Morby’s Ode to the Midwest Rewards Patience. For embarrassing her husband by leading the other women to rebellion. June takes a picture of Hannah with her and carves "Nolite te bastardes carborandorum" (don't let the bastards get you down) in her room in the Waterford house, just in case they didn't get the message that she won't be held down by Gilead. June almost makes it to the corner of the yard where the first Martha will meet her when Serena appears like a bedraggled ghost. She says nothing as she walks into the night after handing Nicole to Emily, but it's clear that Hannah's safety is a big reason she decides to stay. Bradley Whitford was horribly underused. Serena once gave him that, but Gilead's continued oppression and June's influence has changed her. We never find out, because Commander Lawrence is far too busy kvetching about how hard it is to find good help these days (“How am I supposed to motivate employees if I can’t leverage salaries?”) to even remember that the ceremony was meant to take place. June uses the young girl’s scribbled attempts to understand the scripture to wound her conscience. See you next year, bitches. We expect better for our children than we had for ourselves. I’ve also really enjoyed the progression of Rita’s character this series. The latter is far more dangerous than the former.
