Episode 3 "Late" Review: An Episode With A Phenomenal Performance From Alexis Bledel, But Not Much Else
5 September 2018 | by ashboomstick-50540See all my reviews

"Late" the third episode of The Handmaid's Take saves itself in more ways than one because of it's top-notch actors. In the case of this episode, the actress who stands out (although Elisabeth Moss is always great) is Alexis Bledel. She doesn't even have a lot of lines in the episode, yet conveys such much through her facial expressions.

The problem is, not much else happens in the episode. A bunch of the main characters just wander around in circles, not really accomplishing a lot. There are however, a few other great aspects to this episode, that make it worth watching.

There are a multitude of details and truths uncovered about the invention of Gillead, through the use of gripping and haunting flashbacks. These flashbacks are incredibly effective, therefore making it the best part of the episode.

Overall, "Late" still succeeds, because of the phenomenal performance from Bledel, the haunting use of flashbacks, and some of the most disturbing and brutal violence depicted on the show so far. I'm still completely and utterly hooked.

Episode 3: "Late"=89% -five points taken off not much happening, a lot of wandering around -five points taken off for decision to include women on show accusing their boss of firing them on purpose! -1 point taken off still being a bit slow
