The 5 best episodes of The Handmaid’s Tale, ranked by IMDb users

This is the starting point for rewatching.

Many fans have been disappointed with the lack of news regarding season 6 of The Handmaid’s Tale. Since the final season premiered nearly a year ago, at least a possible release date has been speculated, but the network and the production team have remained silent.

The good thing is that you can always find some episodes to rewatch to satisfy your urge to return to the dystopian world of Gilead.


Here are the five best episodes of The Handmaid’s Tale that you might want to watch again, according to IMDb users.

5. Smart Energy (S2E9) – 8.9

This was the episode that made even die-hard fans of Margaret Atwood’s original book believe in the power of the series’ book. The way they’ve expanded the universe and made sure it translates perfectly into the visuals is amazing, and many viewers feel this episode really brought out all the horrors behind Gilead.

4. The Last Party (S2E10) – 9.0

The episode that closely follows the previous one not only matches it in quality, it also surpasses it. The Last Ceremony is really hard to watch, but Elisabeth Moss’ performance has your eyes glued to the screen the whole time. The episode as a whole is heartbreaking, but oddly satisfying, and well worth rating.

3. Night (S1E10) – 9.0

To establish itself as a series worth watching, the cast of The Handmaid’s Tale had to make sure the season finale was as dramatic and high-profile as possible. And that’s exactly what they do, making a perfect first impression and giving the audience a glimpse of what’s to come.

To this day, viewers enjoy learning about all the metaphors behind the art, and all the theories about the consequences of the Liars events.

1. Mayday (S3E13) – 9.3

Not only is this episode the best season finale of The Handmaid’s Tale to date, but it’s also one of the most emotional, poignant, and heartbreaking TV episodes ever. Seeing every victim of this miserable system unite and take a break to help the children out to Canada has been the most empowering story of them all.
