TV's Hottest Triangles: Veronica Mars -- Were You Team Logan or Team Piz?

While it’s nowhere near as bad as the time his wife and daughter were ripped from his side and forced into slavery, the latest episode of The Handmaid’s Tale probably isn’t going to go down as one of Luke Bankole’s Best Weeks Ever.

Ofmatthew isn’t exactly doing cartwheels for her walking partner, though. She makes a point of telling June that she’s praying for Luke to return Nichole to her “rightful home.” And when ladies part, June has the perfect retort to Ofmatthew’s “Under His eye”: “Bite me.”

SERENA HAS HER SAY | It must be Opposite Day in Gilead, because Fred makes a point of inviting Serena into the meeting...
