  • Goof (revealing mistake): Just before the handmaids enter the party, a last minute decision is made to remove at least 5 of the handmaids that were physically maimed. However when they enter the room and head to their tables, there are no empty spots. There are exactly enough seats in an even arrangement for the number of handmaids that entered after the 5 were removed.
  • Goof (plot holes): In one of Serena Joy's flashbacks she remembers moments where she was not present.
  • Goof (revealing mistake): When Serena Joy is waiting for her husband in a hallway in a US government building, in a flashback 32 minutes into the episode, there is a huge antique brass mailbox next to her on the wall which very clearly has the Royal Coat of Arms of the United Kingdom, because the series is actually filmed in Canada.
