Serena Waterford joins Offred in 'The Handmaid's Tale' season 3 trailer as the resistance becomes a revolution
Serena, who stood by her husband Fred Waterford (Joseph Fiennes) throughout most of the first and second season, is ready to rebel and we cannot wait to watch what she will do in the name of resistance
'The Handmaid' Tale' season 3 is about revolution and resistance. Offred and fellow handmaids are ready to fight for respect, equality and everything that they deserve and the trailer that was just dropped by Hulu shows that we are in for an action-packed, intense new season.
Offred — June (Elisabeth Moss) says in the trailer, "Heresy, that's what you get punished for, not for being part of the resistance. Because officially, there is no resistance." In the backdrop of this, we a group of handmaids blowup a glass building as they are seen running away from it.
Offred is also certain that she is not going to run away from Gilead. She says that if she is going to change things, she needs allies and, as expected, after the emotional season 2 climax, Serena Waterford (Yvonne Strahovski), the commander's wife, seems to be on the side of the resistance.
From the looks of it, Serena will be joined by the Commander's driver Nick and Aunt Lydia (Ann Dowd), who was pushed down the stairs by Emily (Alexis Bledel), might also be helping them. She looks distraught enough in the trailer.
While convincing Serena, Offred says, "As Mrs. Waterford, you have influence." To which Serena replies as she takes a drag from smoke in her hand, "Up to a point."
Sure this shows that she is hesitant, but it also shows that she is open to what Offred might be suggesting. This is why, when Offred says, "So, move the point," we are certain that the two will join hands to make lives of women in Gilead better.
Serena, who stood by her husband Fred Waterford (Joseph Fiennes) throughout most of the first and second season, is ready to rebel and we cannot wait to watch what she will do in the name of resistance.
The trailer does not just show rows of handmaids marching on the streets of Gilead, it also shows that there is hope.
We see Emily has reached Canada with Offred's baby and is welcomed by applause from men and women around.
This season, according to the trailer, we will be witnessing the birth of a revolution.
At the end of the trailer, Offred says, "At least there is still hope if I am here. Now, mom's got work." She looks determined, and so does Moira (Samira Wiley).
What role will she play in the upcoming season?
We cannot wait to watch on June 5 when the show premieres on Hulu.
