Man, is the McKenna Grace character really gone? That was a fascinating storyline.

From a comment on the last episode:

And that's the problem, she's losing it, making rash decisions, but everything keeps working out just fine. Martha gets cold feet and runs off before your big jailbreak? Presented as a fatal problem, but then it just... isn't. Plot armor for June is one thing, but plot armor for all her plans (modulo losing a stone-throwing friend or two to an AR)... less interesting.

I totally agree. I was over June's shit about midway through last episode. I'm glad the others are starting to be over her shit too, not just the other handmaids in Gilead, but also in Canada. She fucks shit up, mostly for the greater good, but then moves on while others clean up her messes. She doesnt let anyone else try to lead or sacrifice. It has to always be her. Everyone else around her will die but she gets to keep going.

I really think this show would have been in a much better place if they had decided to follow a different handmaid each season instead of focusing on the same one the whole time, because things are getting ridiculous now.
