House arrests, bold break-outs and horrific whippings this week, as Offred goes to war for her own survival. God, this is hard to watch sometimes
Spoiler alert: this recap is for people watching The Handmaid’s Tale on Channel 4 in the UK. Please do not add spoilers from the novel, or from later episodes if you are further on in the series.
