I also echo everyone else that thought that episode 5 was brilliant.

Serena basically acted out my post on last week's episode - she knew that Nicole was better off in Canada, and she genuinely feels as though she is Nicole's mother and and this conflict was beautifully portrayed by Strahovski. It seems that the desire to be a mother ultimately won out

The Swiss.
It would have something to do with the UN who are onside with the the Canadians against Gillead, and now because of the tape the Canadians know the Waterfords have no biological tie to Nicole, so it will be up to Nick to no doubt avoid death and strike some type of deal.
I thought Swiss too. The blonde lady looked Swiss.
It's getting good.

If it is the Swiss, then that's Canadia, Hawaii, Alaska, the British and now Swiss government all against Gilliead.
Still not sure where Mexico stands, as we do know the resistance is opperating within the government.

It is getting good, but the downside is we're halfway through the series and theirs no real resolution or action taking place. I can see it building to a great climax and we'll have to wait another 12 months to see what happens :(

Come on and hurry up

This is getting pretty damn frustrating

Hour after hour of misery and no end in sight

I thought this Season was supposed to be about the Uprising

Whatever

It’s out if you know where to ‘look’, but SBS on demand tomorow afternoon.

Great episode.
Put a spoiler in so we know you're not talking rubbish. I'll check it out tomorrow night.

A bit confused about Nick now.

So was Nick playing June the whole time? Is he devoted fully to Gilliad as it is now?

Nah Nick loves her. Whether he is completely devoted to Gilead now, hard to tell. His baby with June is the wildcard

I think he has committed a war atrocity somewhere in his time as a Soldier and I am tipping it’s going to be something revolting that will be a game changer for June

Its possible. Would have to be something pretty wild if it’s going to be considered an atrocity in Gilead though. Perhaps we will get a flashback? Been a sad shortage of them this season. Would love some for Commander Lawrence. Can’t wait for his dry, sardonic response to Commander Fred and High Commander Winslow getting it on, assuming that’s where things are heading.

That episode should have been condensed into15 minutes, it was way too slow. Nothing really happened.
