The new episode of The Handmaid's Tale features a familiar voice, one I'm sure you recognised. You might've thought you were mistaken at first, or tried to clean your ear to make sure you heard it correctly, as I did. But don't fret. It's true: Oprah Winfrey was able to flee the repressive Gilead and escape to Canada, and she's helping the resistance (of course).

It's a moment nine months in the making - although, in another way, it's been in the works a lot longer than that. The most recent episode of The Handmaid's Tale isn't just a gorgeous hour of television, it's done something few other shows or films ever have: It gave us the miracle of life, in all its pain and beauty. It's an episode everyone should witness.

The Handmaid's Tale is a story about women in an eerily plausible dystopia where men have taken total control. While the struggles of the Handmaids are obviously still the main focus, Serena Joy, Commander Fred Waterford's wife, has emerged as one of season two's most fascinating characters: She's someone we loathe for her support of Gilead and its oppression of women, but someone we can't help but sympathise with as she grapples with the monster she helped create.
