The Handmaid’s Tale: Another Depressing Character
The ending of the third season of The Handmaid’s Tale showed the misfortune of June who is played by Elizabeth Moss, the actor and producer from America. June fails in her effort to flee the state, yet again. She is yet again unsuccessful in escaping to Canada.
The opening of The Handmaid’s Tale’s new season takes place with June convalescing into the countryside of the state of Gilead. Here, June and all of her friends are known as “Marthas.” They pose as women belonging to a low social status. As per the revolution, it is slowing down and regathering strength in order to fight the fundamentalist regime of Gilead.
After witnessing this scene, the viewers might get the idea that June and her colleagues will now get a chance to have a moment of peace. But this is not the case.

She is someone who got married to an aged commander of the farm by force. Hers is no less than any horror movie. She gets raped both by her husband and his associates. The story of this new character is a break from the mainstream plot of the Hulu series.
