The Handmaid’s Tale Season 4 Episode 8 Recap
The eighth episode is called ‘Testimony.’ As June gradually settles into life after Gilead, it is clear that she has not left the trauma behind. Instead, she uses that to fuel her rage and thirst for revenge. June testifies against the Waterfords in court and details her harrowing and painful experience of being a Handmaid in Gilead. She is further infuriated by Fred’s remarks in court and when his lawyer brings up her affair with Luke before she became a Handmaid. Much to the surprise of the Waterfords, some people in Canada support them.
In the Handmaid’s support group, it becomes clear that June’s vision for the group is different from that of Moira’s. While Moira tries to focus on healing and moving on from the trauma, June takes things in a vengeful direction. This becomes crystal clear when Emily flips her switch after former Aunt Irene comes to seek forgiveness. If Emily chose to do things differently, Irene could have been a solid witness against the ongoings in Gilead. Unfortunately, it is too late before Emily realizes this since Irene hangs herself.
Luke is struggling to connect with June, who has shut herself off from him. As much as he would like to help her and be there for her, she keeps pushing him away. He even attends the court hearing against June’s wishes, which gives him a glimpse of what she went through in Gilead. He is worried about the person June is becoming, and rightly so. By the end of the episode, June is willing to talk to him about the last time she saw Hannah.
In Gilead, Aunt Lydia is beside herself and unleashes her anger on other people, including another Aunt. When she goes to talk to Lawrence, she learns that Janine has been found, but June is free. The Commander lets the Aunt know that she could use Janine as an outlet for her anger. When Janine finally arrives there, Lydia begins to torture her psychologically. Janine even admits that she would rather die than become a Handmaid again.
