It’s execution or a life sentence in the Colonies, both the radioactive ones that kill you shortly or the work Colonies that kill you slowly. June switches into Offred Coquette mode, the persona that works greatest for manipulating Fred. This is the persona who joined Fred for snacks in the kitchen and played scrabble within the workplace, not the one who went to Jezebels.

Nick reveals up and says he’s taking Fred into the custody of the Eyes. Babe in arms is great when you’re serious about it however, how may that probably happen?
