As we enter The Handmaid’s Tale season 3 finale on Hulu this Wednesday, it’s clear that we are entering one of the craziest situations to date for June. This is where the rubber meets the road when it comes to her plan to get the kids out. She’s worked so hard to figure out if there is a way to do that, and she’s put herself at risk and plenty of others, as well. This is Elisabeth Moss’ character with a rebellious streak, but it’s also not something that is wholly virtuous.
In life, you can be guided by a number of different motivations. Some of them may appear to be on the surface to be benevolent, whereas others appear to be slightly more sinister. Life is rather complicated that way, and the same can be said for the world at large. What we do know is that entering the end of season 3, June is thinking two-fold — helping others, but also making sure that some other people understand what it’s like to feel pain. She’s dealt with that pain herself and made a lot of decisions in the name of it.
In speaking about where June is in the finale and some of her guiding principles at the moment, show executive producer Bruce Miller said the following via Variety:
“She’s gotten opportunities before in the season, but she’s finally able to bring all of those skills she’s learned to bear, and we get to see if it’s enough — or not. Right now she’s kind of on both a noble and revengeful path. She wants to do something that’s good, but she always wants to basically make all of these mothers hurt the way she hurts.”
Miller also made it clear within this interview that he hasn’t fully begun planning the upcoming fourth season yet, but we’re sure it will build on the emotional journey that the June character has been on for the better part of this year. The question we wonder is this — how many repercussions will there be for some of her actions?
