Next week, The Handmaid’s Tale season 3 episode 13 is going to arrive on Hulu, and this will prove itself to be chaotic (as is the nature of this show). It has to be given what June is trying to do and everything that she has already given up.
Just think in terms of tonight’s episode for a moment — we saw the end of Eleanor. In the video that CarterMatt has for you below, you can see Elisabeth Moss explain how this was something that June felt had to happen at this point in the story — it was a means to her desired end of getting the kids out. That’s what she has cared about for weeks on end, and within this preview you see her doing what she can to desperately move the kids to the airport. It’s not going to be an easy thing to do, especially when Commander Lawrence starts to have concerns as to whether or not it can work. That’s when June says perhaps one of her boldest lines of the season: “You’re not in charge. I am.”
As for what else is coming next week, we’re left to mostly wonder if there’s any more to tell in regards to Serena and Fred for this season. Serena has been forced to hear some “hard truths,” as Yvonne Strahovski also notes in the video. Serena’s made some of the decisions that she now has to live with, and we’ll see if there is a way for those to change or transform coming up down the line.
Through most of the season 3 finale, we’re expecting some big moves and notable surprises. Yet, we’re not expecting closure of the fullest kind. It’s hard to think that this is going to come when we know that there is one more season (at least) beyond this current one. Given how much June has changed this season already, it’s a point of great curiosity to wonder just how she could change and transform herself from here on out. We don’t think that the start of season 4 is going to roll around and we’ll see some sort of regression, where June is somehow becoming more like the character that she was before.
