Unlike last time, Moira is not pleased to see Offred. She wants to know why she's come back, and when Offred describes her mission for May Day, Moira is horrified. She wants Offred to stop playing with fire and accept her fate, to just "go home and do what they say." Hearing this defeatism from Moira, the woman who once tied an Aunt naked to a pole in order to escape, is crushing. Offred tearfully reminds Moira of their shared promise to rescue Hannah, the one they pinky swore on, and implores her to "keep her [expletive] [expletive] together," but Moira doesn't want to fight. She wants to keep her head down, live a Jezebel life, and maybe not die in the colonies until she's 40.
