Handmaid's Tale

Elisabeth Moss is a true force to be reckoned with as June, the core heroine of The Handmaid’s Tale. For three seasons, June has endured beatings and cattle proddings, forced separation from her daughter ritualized rape, and the snarly, one-note acting skills of Joseph Fiennes. Moss made every second of it real and personal.

Yet, while Moss continues to gain accolades for her performance, there is a problem with Hune’s ongoing bad-a** antics in the Hulu series: According to the rules that govern the fictional world of Gilead, June should be dead a dozen times over. If the show continues to come up with absurd ways for her to escape death, will it lose its way entirely?
