'The Handmaid's Tale' season 3 premiere will likely see Offred and Serena face the repercussions of their decisions
The world is waiting to see what Offred (Elisabeth Moss), Serena Joy (Yvonne Strahovski), and Aunt Lydia (Ann Dowd) will offer in the premiere of 'The Handmaid's Tale' season 3, which will air June 5 on Hulu. The show, set in the dystopian world of Gilead, caught the attention of viewers in 2017 when the series based on author Margaret Atwood's book of the same name made its debut.
While the book itself was written in 1985, the show's relevance made it popular, so much so, women across the world began to dress in the garb of the handmaids at Women's March parades and at relevant protests. Now, what are we looking forward to in the premiere of the show?
What will happen to Offred who tried to escape with baby Nichole and Emily (Alexis Bledel)? What will happen to Serena who did not stop Offred but instead gave her blessings and what about Nick Blaine (Max Minghella)? He stopped Commander Fred Waterford (Joseph Fiennes) from following Offred and even held a gun to him.
With just a couple of days left before the show airs, here are the things likely to take place in the upcoming season. Let's start with Offred and Serena's punishment. Commander Waterford is not one to let disobedience go, as we have seen before. He is the same man who whipped his wife with a belt in front of Offred for disobeying his orders. So what will he do this time?
It cannot be much, considering it didn't stop Offred from rebelling against the regime of Gilead, but this could be what really triggered Offred into really taking the rebellion a step further. We know Offred gets help from the Marthas because in one of the scenes in the trailers she is definitely seen walking stealthily in a Martha uniform. She will also find herself an ally in Commander Lawrence (Bradley Whitford) who helped Emily escape from Gilead. Along with Nick and Lawrence, Offred will plot and influence people who helped form Gilead and its regressive system.
The most fascinating part about the upcoming season will be how Offred uses the foundation of Gilead to burn it down. Like she said in the trailers, "Heresy. That's what you get punished for. Not for being a part of the resistance, because officially, there is no resistance."
