This article contains predictions for the Hulu series The Handmaid’s Tale season 5, episode 5, and includes the release date, time and where to watch online.

“Dear Offred” continues the unmatched rivalry between Serena and June, as the Gilead ambassador finds a new home on Canadian soil and June attempts to destroy her enemy from a closer proximity. While this battle wages on, Lydia reassesses her teaching methods in Gilead and offers to change the Handmaid system. It’s another gripping and highly addictive instalment that will keep viewers coming back for more. Here’s what happened in episode four of The Handmaid’s Tale:

  • June is berated by a stranger at the park, who calls June a w***e. She physically pins this stranger back and replies with her own venomous abuse. June recounts this exchange to her therapist.
  • Serena is offered safe asylum by Tuello, but turns it down. She is given a new driver, who takes her to her new home. Gilead have an Information Center in Toronto to help spread their message and values. Serena is in charge of this safe haven for Gilead enthusiasts.
  • Tuello informs June of Serena’s new home. June and the gang are furious that this has been allowed to happen and warn Tuello of Serena’s manipulative ways.
  • June drives to the Center and stares at Serena from a distance. This unnerves Serena, who asks her security about their preparations for June’s likely attack. Serena sends June an invitation in retaliation, made out to Offred. This angers June even further and she verbalizes her strong desires to kill Serena.
  • Luke meets with Serena and threatens to close her building down, citing violating codes. He mentions June’s strong desire to kill Serena and offers up a different outcome. If she helps them to retrieve Hannah then she will be spared. Serena attacks back, mentioning Luke’s cowardice and how Nick helped June in Gilead. Luke now wants to kill her too.
  • Lydia helps Janine recover in Gilead and asks Commander Lawrence if she can redesign the Handmaid’s system. He rejects her proposal, demanding that she keeps her handmaids in check.
  • Luke manages to get the Information Center closed down due to building code violations. June burns her invitation from Serena.

  • Tensions will grow in Canada and news will spread of Serena’s arrival. There may be rioting in the streets and protests as people fear Gilead’s growing popularity. Violence may follow.
  • June will rally the troops and plot a new war, possibly going for Serena on home soil.
  • Lydia may soften up her approach to the Handmaids and her behavior management will slowly slide into disrepair.
