June abandons Resistance as star reveals a “new direction” in The Handmaid’s Tale?
Season four of THE HANDMAID’S TALE ended with a shocking conclusion, and as fans wait for the fifth installment, a new hint regarding June’s fate has been revealed.
The Handmaid’s Tale, a Hulu dystopian series, following June Osborne (played by Elisabeth Moss) as she struggled to flee Gilead’s wrath. She finally made it to freedom in Season 5, but a new indication suggests she may turn on those who rescued her.
June was reunited with her family and became a free woman in Canada after numerous failed attempts to flee Gilead.
She met many other women with the same purpose as her on her trek out of the misogynistic and patriarchal state.
Some were fellow Handmaids, while others were Marthas, whom she sought to persuade to join her, but some did not.
The majority of women who were caught were sent to be hung on the wall, to work in the Colonies, where they would eventually die from toxins, or to Jezebels, where they were forced into prostitution.
Regardless all the difficulties, June’s determination to quit Gilead remained unwavering.
She met The Resistance, four separate groups of women who wanted to aid her along the way.
Mayday was a clandestine resistance group with the goal of overthrowing Gilead from within. Its membership was never revealed, and it functioned through a clandestine cell system.
Members of the Underground Femaleroad provided Safe Houses for escaping Handmaids as well as a smuggling operation.
Oprah Winfrey hosted Radio Free America, an anti-government broadcast station based in Gilead. The station was rarely heard by the Handmaids because they were not allowed to drive or own electronics.
Although it was primarily intended to disseminate information, the Martha’s Network was also utilized to organize cell services for active members of the Resistance in Gilead by a group of Marthas who had had enough.
June had relied on these organizations for assistance on her way to freedom, and actress Elisabeth Moss warned that her character may abandon the Resistance in season five.
She confirmed it in a video with showrunners Bruce Miller and Warren Littlefield, as well as her on-screen husband O.T Fagabenle, on YouTube.
She revealed snippets from her chats with creator Bruce Miller, saying, “We ended up talking about season.” Brinkwire Summary News
