Fans have come up with theories of their own regarding the fate of June in the 4th season of The Handmaid’s Tale :
The Handmaid’s Tale is a popular Canadian web television series. This Hulu original is based on a 1985 novel by Margaret Atwood.
The third season of the show saw June smuggling a large number of children and Marthas out of Gilead and into Canada. June willing sacrificed her place on the plane to distract the guards at the airport so the others can have a better chance at life. We last saw her lying on the forest floor having sustained a gunshot wound. This scene makes us wonder, what lies ahead for June? Will she survive?
However, we do know that Commander Lawrence knew about June’s plan. He allowed her to use his home to bring Children and Marthas in so they could safely get to the plane to leave Gilead, which he helped to create. If June was to be recovered and taken back, will her fate be decided by him? Some fans suggest that Lawrence having control over most parts of Gilead and being a prominent figure in the state, he will, after all, be the one to decide what happens next!
While some others believe that June will be sent to the colonies as it is much safer than mainland Gilead. We were given a small glimpse of the colonies in season 2 when Emily was sent there. She could be seen in a bunker with other women where she will be forced to work until death!
