In the criminal justice system, the sexually based offenses that happen on legit every episode of The Handmaid’s Tale would never, ever fly. Detective Elliot Stabler would make sure of that. That’s why it was so odd to see him pop up on today’s episode of The Handmaid’s Tale.
[There are spoilers coming. Hop out of this post if you haven’t watched last the episode yet!] His character is Commander George Winslow, a hot-shot D.C. person who is just as terrible as everyone else on this show. The Waterfords and June stay with his family while they’re in D.C. making the PR plea for their daughter. The Winslows have tons of kids, all fathered by the commander with various handmaids.
His character is pretty much the opposite of Detective Stabler, but that didn’t stop fans from legit losing their minds when they saw him on the screen.

.@Chris_Meloni has gone from playing someone who threw rapists in jail to playing someone who condones rape. I’m shook.
There’s also some very noticeable thirst happening.

Part of that thirst is coming from one scene in particular, where Commander Winslow and Commander Fred Waterford are playing pool together. At first, George kinda, sorta intentionally puts his butt almost in Fred’s lap. And at another point, he touches Fred on the shoulder. He definitely gives off a flirty vibe.
RE: that butt move, Chris told Entertainment Tonight that he did it super intentionally, but not for the fans necessarily. “I don’t do things so the fans will go wild,” he said. OKAY, sure.
He also said that there are lots of different ways to interpret the scene, but the dynamic between George and Fred is an interesting one. “The number of children [George] has is unheard of,” Chris said. “He represents everything that Fred aspires to be.”
