In the event that you did not know already, The Handmaid’s Tale season 4 episode 9 is the penultimate episode of the season, we are nearing the end folks! During this episode (entitled “Progress”), you will see June and Luke team up like never before. Meanwhile, Janine will continue to do her best to survive now that she is back under Gilead control. We’ve said it before and we will say it again – Janine is really underestimated in this world and her ability to be able to adapt and play out a situation is a skill that not many have in this environment.
Oh, and of course Serena and Fred also have some stuff going on — not that we’re anywhere near as enthused about their stories since those two are the absolute worst people.

Below, you can get a few more details on season 4 episode 9 courtesy of a new synopsis (via SpoilerTV):
June and Luke work together to save Hannah, reaching out to Lawrence and Nick for help. Serena and Fred greet unexpected visitors from Gilead. Janine tries to assist Aunt Lydia when a Handmaid-in-training goes on a hunger strike at the Red Center.
Those who watched the promo for this episode knew already that June and Nick would be reuniting, so now there’s a little more context on what that means. Seeing Luke work alongside her is a nice continuation from episode 8, where she confided in him about the last time she saw Hannah. For the first time, it feels like the two are turning a corner together.
As for whether or not Lawrence and Nick are really about to help her, that’s where things get a little more complicated. While Nick would want to help June the best he can, Lawrence has long shown himself rather difficult to read or understand his motivations. He’s a wildcard.
