Last week’s episode of The Magicians didn’t have me jumping out of my sofa (like the Les Miz episode) or screaming at the screen “That’s awesome writing!” like Be the Penny.

I may be late to the Moxie party, but late is better than never.

I’ve given you a week. If you’re watching The Handmaid’s Tale, I’m assuming you’ve seen the season finale The Word by now. If not, be warned there are more spoilers below than Eyes in Gilead.

As we gear up for the season closer of The Handmaid’s Tale, the two previous episodes have shown us some of the worst and best in Gilead and the show’s writing.
