Season 2, Episode 2: ‘Unwomen’

Hello, fellow Handmaid’s analysts, aficionados, and fans! We’re back with our video analysis of Episode 2, ‘Unwomen.’ The episode was dark and full of terrors (literally and metaphorically) as we followed Emily in the Colonies and June wherever she is in Gilead. The bulk of our analysis comes from Dr. Hinson who’s expertise in imprisonment narratives and artifacts really came to the fore. But we also have some key insights on prayer from Dr. Donnelly as well as A LOT of questions for Episode 3. 

We discovered after filming, through this article, that Unwomen probably referenced the women in the Colonies, so we wanted to share that with you. It also has fascinating insights into the coloring of clothing in Gilead – we really could analyze everything! Catch our Episode 1 analysis here and our Season 1 recap here, or find all our videos on YouTube under Abbey Research!

Join us next Friday for our video recap/analysis of Episode 3, ‘Baggage’ and as always, feel free to join the conversation with us here, on Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, or any other platform you find Abbey Research! Until next week!
