The Handmaid’s Tale Season 4 finale aired last night, and it was every bit as harrowing as you might have expected. The season finale left me with many thoughts and feelings, but the one that stuck with me most is how Gilead has been liberated from the oppressive regime of its founders. It is liberating to watch handmaids walk free in a world where they are no longer slaves. Still, I also feel conflicted about this liberation because it means that there will be fewer opportunities for insight into what life under Gilead looked like.
What can we expect from The Handmaid’s Tale Season 4 finale?
The episode will explore the fraught relationship between Offred and Serena Joy (read our thoughts on their unlikely alliance).
We have a pretty good idea that there’s going to be an intense showdown. We’re not sure who it’ll happen with, but judging from this teaser image of Fred Waterford looking stoic while holding a gun in front of his handmaid, we can expect violence. A lot of people are speculating that he might kill June/Offred as she tries to escape Gilead—which would make sense given all the parallels she drew about what happened to herself when Emily punched her last season. Would you want your favorite character killed off? I know I wouldn’t! -Aunt Lydia is also going to be back in action. She’s been one of the fascinating characters on the show, and season four ended with her final confrontation with June, as she told her she would always find a way to get what she wanted from Offred.
I’m so excited for this episode! It’ll probably air sometime next year (hopefully). I hope Serena Joy lets go of some more secrets about Gilead or that Aunt Lydia finally snaps again.”
“The Handmaid’s Tale Season Four finale: called “The wilderness”
This is the last episode of The Handmaid’s Tale. Is this season finale really going to be the end? I don’t want it to be! Season four had so many twists and turns- but was also very heavy on coming back into Gilead, where Aunt Lydia, Serena Joy, and June are all still trying to figure out who they are now with the new life that has been thrust upon them.”
I’m not sure what could happen next in terms of a fifth series until we know what happens at Atwood’s finish line. There have been some loose threads left dangling from previous episodes, including how Nick knows that Luke is his son or if Janine actually survived her time as an Unwoman before she was executed. It’s possible that the next series could look at how Gilead is dealing with climate change and what efforts are being made to survive in a world where fertility rates have dropped even further.”
It’s going to be so hard waiting for Season Five- which might not come out until 2022? But it will definitely be worth it when we finally get some answers about how this story ends! I hope you enjoyed reading my thoughts on The Handmaid’s Tale season four finale, and please let me know if there is anything else from previous seasons that you want me to comment on before looking ahead!”
The Handmaid’s Tale Season Four Finale: Liberation and Violent Unknowability of Gilead
In the final episode of The Handmaid’s Tale, season four, Offred and Serena Joy escape the Waterford home to find safety from the Colonies.
As they make their way through a forest, Gilead is revealed as a hostile territory where refugees are executed without question. The irony that they could be killed before she was executed makes us think about how this story could end maybe with Offred being captured by those who want to overthrow Gilead? But if we look at what has happened so far – the brutal violence enacted against slaves and anyone deemed unworthy or “dangerous” within Gilead—we see a very different ending: one that takes place after all of these e people are dead.
The Handmaid’s Tale has always been about the power of women: how they gain it, lose it, and fight for it. Episode ten was all about what happens when you take that away from them- where Offred is no longer a handmaid but a refugee who can be killed without question in this hostile territory. The final episode may have been brutal to watch as we see her get lost in Gilead with Serena Joy by her side. Still, there’s more than just violence to think about here, too: After four seasons of watching these characters live out their lives as slaves within Gilead—watching Aunt Lydia force Commander Lawrence rape Janine.
