The Handmaid’s Tale season 3 episode 12 preview: June, Serena’s next moves

Handmaid's TaleWhat’s coming up on The Handmaid’s Tale season 3 episode 12? Following what could have been one of the best episodes of the season, we’re going to have a chance to see what’s coming up after June and Serena’s big moves.

As we prepare for this season’s endgame, it already seems like the show is facing a different paradigm altogether. As the promo gives away (CarterMatt has that for you to watch below), this is not the same June anymore. She spent much of episode 11 trying to get a better understanding of Commander Lawrence; as Elisabeth Moss explained in the video, her character realized that she didn’t have to like him in order to work with him. The two forged their partnership to get the kids out of Gilead and were willing to do whatever it takes.

For Serena, meanwhile, she’s trying to move forward now following the decision that she made in regards to Fred. The capture by authorities makes it so that Serena and Fred are split apart and you have to wonder where things will go for the two of them now. Serena’s betrayal of him was an enormous move for her that fundamentally alters her trajectory … but does it absolve her sins? Will anything take away from some of what she has already done?

One thing that we are confident about is this — June’s status within this world is changing. She’s more of a revolutionary than ever before and it feels like we’re on the cusp of this society no longer being stable. We’ve dealt with a lot of grim stuff in season 3 — and that’s saying something given the bleak nature of the first two seasons — but now, we could be moving in a direction where there are at least some glimmers of hope. The remaining question is whether or not some of these glimmers can last. At least we know there is a season 4 coming up!
