lol they lost me the minute the aliens chose for their ambassador a random farmer from Missouri just cause he was able to negotiate about corn. Could have been interesting too bad the writer had such a boner for the whole underdog thing which doesn't work here.
I'm was with Asia on the Vixen situation like I know there's been this thing where nowadays we're like drop toxic friends and all that which in most cases it's for real but this isn't the case. We're not asking for Ru to baby her or to try and talk to her because sometimes you don't have to say shit, just stand there and be like "I'm here for you, you might not want to listen now but I'm here for you". Yes you're allowed to be mad and frustrated at said person but that doesn't mean ignoring someone when they're obviously screaming for help but you couldn't be bothered anymore. I understand Ru's from a tough love kind of world and yes people shouldn't be bothered but you don't abandon people because you are a little inconvenienced, especial in a society that's built upon a sisterhood like that. What type of message does that send? Ru can be wise but his words aren't god and he can be wrong and in this instance he is.
The Handmaid's Tale Season 2 Episode 6 (s02e06)
In a dystopian near-future, the totalitarian and Christian-fundamentalist government of Gilead rules the former United States amidst an ongoing civil war and subjugates women, who are not allowed to work, control money, or even read. Widespread infertility due to environmental contamination has resulted in the conscription of young fertile women—called Handmaids, according to biblical precedent—who are assigned to the homes of the elite, where they must have ritualized sex with the men in order to become pregnant and bear children for those men and their wives. The main character, Offred, is the Handmaid assigned to an elite Commander and his wife, and as such is subject to the strictest rules and constant scrutiny; an improper word or deed on her part can lead to her execution. Offred, so named because her master is named Fred, can remember the "time before", when she was married with a daughter and had her own name, but all she can safely do now is follow the rules of Gilead in hope that she can someday live free.
