This episode was everything!!! I really wanted June to get out but I know if she leaves Gilead then we wouldn't have anyone to follow there but it's super frustrating. Anyway Serena gets her comeuppance and I am delighted!!! She is not and will never be a good person, her selfishness will always win out. Love the Waterfords turning on each other, it's exactly what they deserve. The others turning back to help June, Rita getting out, that little girl seeing her dad, Luke looking for Hannah....phenomenal episode. At this point I'm sure June and Hannah will leave Gilead together, she has tried and failed too many times without her.

What an amazing, riveting season 3 finale! I have to say that I already admired Elisabeth Moss as Peggy in Mad Men, when she developed the main traits of her character--that of being a noble, humble, intelligent and extremely brave and courageous woman, thriving to accomplish a truly important goal in her life. Peggy alone--from among all the other players in the ad agency, understood the hunger that Americans had for something to mend, if at least for just a brief moment in history, their convoluted, twisted, drugged, family circles as they headed into the violent 1970s. Peggy's concept for the Burger Chef campaign, far more than selling burgers, brought together moms, dads, and kids around something as simple and yet as American as a good-old hamburger with fries and Coke. Now in Gilead, as June, Moss has further evolved into a true super heroine for the oppressed masses of a United States that has totally succumbed to the cruel power of the elites in control of the social, financial, political, and military structures of the land. June's acts of courage and selflessness throughout the first three seasons of the series reach a point of true ecstasis towards the end of s3e13, "Mayday," as she lies on her back having just being stricken by an automatic rifle, watching the airplane that carries 52 Gilead children towards freedom. She left herself behind from the plane, sacrificing her own personal integrity, for the good that she had set to attain. She's bleeding, in pain, but joyfully smiling for her accomplishment, as the plane's blinking lights disappear into the black sky. I can hardly wait for season 4 now, I'm badly in suspense. And neither can I wait to see more of Elisabeth Moss in this and in other series and/or movies.
