The Handmaid’s Tale Season 3 Recap
Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale concluded its Season 3 with a daring and heroic mission to free a group of children from Gilead. To close out this season of The Handmaid’s Tale, marked with June’s trip to the unhinged side and Serena’s desire to be with Nichole at all costs, we are recapping Season 3’s most shocking moments.
June was hell-bent on seeing Hannah. After learning where she went to school, June manipulated Eleanor into going there with her. Unfortunately, Ofmatthew had reported her to Aunt Lydia. June and the other Handmaids shunned Ofmatthew, driving her to beat Janine at Loaves and Fishes. The Guardians shot her, but since Ofmatthew was pregnant, her body was kept alive until the baby came. June was forced to stay by her side in the hospital and tried to murder her. When the baby came, the doctors sacrificed Ofmatthew’s life for the baby.
Ofmatthew’s death sparked a plan for June. She wanted to get as many young girls out of Gilead as she could. June had support from Handmaids, Marthas, and Commander Lawrence. She secured plane through a bartender at Jezebel’s and killed Commander Winslow who spotted her. Because Eleanor could potentially jeopardize the mission, she let her die. June even pulled a gun on a child. But ultimately, she ambushed a Guardian with a gun and took a bullet to give the children a chance to get away.
All Serena wanted was to see Nichole. She gave Fred up to the Americans in exchange and had immunity for what Gilead made her do. However, Fred told Tuello that Serena had forced June to have sex with Nick to impregnate her. Gilead hadn’t made her do that, and immunity didn’t cover it. Tuello arrested her too.
