Serena has her sense of self shaken this week. (SBS)

We have just watched episode 8, which is called “Women’s Work’.

This week we with see the pros and cons of the women of Gilead banding together, for a little rule breaking. That has negative consequences for Serena and June when the Commander arrives home recuperated and wants his office back. But it has a positive effect elsewhere in the episode when the women of Gilead, from all social classes, decide the ends justify the means when the life of a baby is at stake.

Presented by
Fiona Williams, Sana Qadar, Natalie Hambly
