After being basically sidelined for two whole episodes, we finally got ourselves a serious dose of Alison this week — and the mix of flashback and present-day dilemmas gave us greater insight into one of the original Clone Club members than we ever had before. In an episode devoted almost exclusively to her, Alison struggled to reconcile the mistakes of her past (remember Aynsley?) and her feelings of inadequacy compared to her Leda sisters but came away the episode’s MVP.
“Sarah, you need to listen to her.”Mrs. S tells that to an unconscious Sarah as she drifts in Rachel/tranquilizer-dart-induced slumber. She’s referring to Kira — who is now showing interest in finding out why she’s so “special,” which hopefully means we’ll finally get some answers on that front — but it’s also symbolic of Sarah accepting M.K.’s decision to stay behind, to stop running after all these years, and to accept the (awful, painful) consequences that came her way.
WARNING: This post contains spoilers for the season finale of The Handmaid’s Tale. There’s more to come in the world of Gilead. After the acclaimed first season of The Handmaid’s Tale ended on an ambiguous note, series star Elisabeth Moss is excited to see what happens after Offred/June gets into that black van. Moss notes that the Margaret Atwood novel on which the series is based also leaves room for questions about June’s fate at its end.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
