The US drama series is set in a dystopian society that treats women as property of the state and forces those who are fertile into sexual servitude to repopulate a devastated world.
Tonight’s episode saw Offred and the Handmaids assist with the delivery of Janine's baby, prompting her to recall her own daughter's birth.
Offred drew closer to Ofglen and dreaded a secret meeting with the Commander.
Last week’s episode saw Offred struggle to survive as a reproductive surrogate for a powerful Commander and his resentful wife.

While fans were shocked by her remarks, the 34-year-old has since opened up about her comments and clarified that she does believe the drama is "first and foremost feminist".
