We all know that everyone is out for themselves in Gilead and the penultimate episode of ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Season 5 gave us a proper look at where our main characters’ allegiances lie as we gear up for a scintillating finale. Two main characters – June and Serena –  are fighting their respective wars and are trying to get out of the clutches of Gilead men who are trying to suppress them in order to show their superiority. However, we know that both women are capable of giving an extraordinary fight back to their suppressors.

In the penultimate episode, Serena (Yvonne Strahovski) and her baby Noah are in the Gilead Center and their photo is taken for the newly-opened center. Meanwhile, June (Elisabeth Moss) and Luke get to know more details about Tuello’s planned attack to save children in Gilead. June is really happy that an attack like this is being planned and wants to see the live feed of it. However, things turn upside down when the live feed of the attack gets lost as soon as the three planes cross Gilead’s borders and all data is lost. A few moments later, Tuello tells June that the children are safe, but Gilead’s military struck down all the planes and there were no survivors.

June attends a candlelight vigil for all the victims of the attack and when we thought that everything was going smoothly, the peaceful agitation is overshadowed by protestors. Everyone, including June, is trying to remain calm and not do something that escalates the matter. A young girl comes forward and repeats the Pledge of Allegiance and June helps her in finishing the allegiance, but this peaceful moment is broken by gunfire. The episode ended with June saving herself and the little girl as the bullet misses the target and hits the flag. The concluding part of the penultimate episode was truly phenomenal and sets up a gruesome finale. So, when is the finale going to air? Let’s find out.

With that twisted ending of the penultimate episode, it will be interesting to see who fired the bullet and who ordered the hit.

However, she won’t go out without a fight, so we expect her to strike back really strong.

The finale will be all about finding which side ends up having an upper hand in the fight and it’s not going to be easy for any of the sides to fully neutralize the threat. Let’s wait and watch.
