At the beginning of the season finale, the feeling of uncertainty is predominant throughout the entire episode. June is in a town where she was supposed to get help and she and Nichole want to get to Hawaii-one of the only remaining parts of what used to be the United States.

Meanwhile, Janine has been announced as a handmaid to Commander Lawrence and Mrs. Putnam and, as always, Aunt Lydia hopes she feels grateful. However, when Ms. Putnam calls her OfLawrence, she gets angry and argues with the mistress of the house, consequently being arrested by the Eyes. At the end of the episode, we don’t know if she will be sent back to the Colonies, as she is valuable to Gilead for still being able to have children.

Likewise, Hannah is fighting her own battles. She is sent to a school where she will learn to be a forgiving wife, but she has June’s blood. So, despite her being given another name, we see her writing “Hannah” on a piece of paper—a sign that she won’t give up on who she is.

After saving June from a Canadian man who runs over June, Luke beats the man until he dies. Now, he is wanted for murder. Therefore, they need to escape as quickly as possible.

After saying goodbye to June and Nichole, we also don’t know what the future holds for Luke. We’ll have to wait for The Handmaid’s Tale season six to find out!

Then, in the final moments of the season finale, June arrives at the train station and finds Serene there, comforting her son Noah. The journey of the two remains intertwined and an arc of redemption could happen in the next season.
