We provide predictions for the Hulu series The Handmaid’s Tale season 5, episode 10, and detail the release date, time and where to watch online.

Just before the season finale, our cast of characters makes their allegiances known to all around them and chooses a definitive side. June reaches the end of her tether with Lawrence and decides to stay in Toronto, whilst Serena decides she’s had enough of the Wheeler’s controlling hold over her and makes good on her plans of escape. The Handmaid’s Tale season 5, episode 9 is an action-packed instalment, one that still finds time to address the emotional side of the apocalyptic regime as well. We even end up feeling sorry for Naomi Putnam, of all people. Here’s what happened in episode nine of The Handmaid’s Tale:

  • Tuello explains their plans for evacuating Hannah and 29 other stolen children out of Gilead via three aircrafts that will sneak into the region. June asks to watch the live feed of the event and Tuello allows it.
  • Serena asks Alanis if she can attend the Gilead Centre’s grand opening, but is rejected. The two then argue over breastfeeding versus bottle feeding. Serena remembers June’s advice though and eventually submits to Mrs. Wheeler.
  • Lawrence and Lydia meet with Naomi to discuss her future plans. She fears they are going to take her to the colonies, but Lawrence actually wants her to move in with him instead. It’s an odd marriage proposal, but one that Naomi can decline if she so chooses. She is asked to think about it.
  • Serena tries to persuade Commander Wheeler to let her attend the event, she butters him up and convinces the man to grant permission with talk of recruiting new followers. Alanis is outraged by this betrayal and slaps Serena twice across the face.
  • During the live feed transmission of Hannah’s evacuation, they lose all data on the aircrafts and Luke and June are asked to leave the room. It is later revealed that Gilead have gunned down these planes and killed all those aboard.
  • Lawrence calls June to convince her one last time to move to New Bethlehem. They argue about the attack from the night before and June literally begs for Hannah to be returned home. Lawrence refuses and June loses her temper, destroying her garden in the process.
  • Serena is a hit at the Centre’s opening, which only angers Alanis further. She tells Serena that she will be attending alone tomorrow with Noah. Alanis then asks for a bottle, but Serena has forgotten to bring one. She asks to go and breastfeed in private. Serena then runs off and hitchhikes away from the Centre.
  • Tuello suggest June meets with Nick to try and persuade him to defect. They meet in person, but both individuals will not change their minds. Nick won’t leave Gilead and June won’t move to New Bethlehem. They say their goodbyes, possibly for the last time.
  • Commander Mackenzie and the others celebrate the attack and congratulate Lawrence for his expert vision. Lawrence stands next to Naomi and places his hand on her shoulder.
  • June attends a candlelight vigil for those that died in the attack. Protestors shout as Tuello calls out the victim’s names. A victim’s daughter recites the Pledge of Allegiance with June. There is gunfire and June is shot at, she dives to the ground, protecting the child.

  • It looked very much like the gunshots were squarely aimed at June. Going on the conversation the Commanders were just having, it would seem Gilead have finally had enough of the woman and have hired someone to kill her off. I think June will probably escape this attack unharmed though and the Canadian authorities will fight back, turning the vigil into a mass-shooting.
  • Serena finally made good on her plans and managed to flee with her baby. She’ll either head straight to Tuello or to June’s house to try and formulate a new plan so that she never has to step foot in the Wheeler’s home ever again.
  • Commander Lawrence and Commander Blaine seem to have cut ties with June for good now, will they try another form of attack or will they be forced to move June to New Bethlehem against her wishes.

    This is b***s**t! You guys are killing me. I love this show too much to wait a whole week to find out what happens next. I was fortunate enough to binge the 1st 4 seasons. Practically ignored my family for a week, & I love my kiddies (Lol). But for real tho…love it?
