The final scene of The Handmaid’s Tale season left viewers with one big question.
Who took Offred?
Was she rescued by the resistance or was she being taken to a fate or life worse than the one she was trapped in?
While many of us, optimists that we are, were hoping it was the latter it looks like we may be disappointed.
The full trailer for season two has dropped off and there’s one big clue about what happens to Offred.
Listen: The Binge hosts explain the other huge plot line you missed this week. This time on the new season of Black Mirror.
We really only see her ‘free’ in the flashbacks of life before Gilead. We’re also shown a confronting shot of her wearing the muzzle we saw Ofglen forced to wear last season. It looks likely that whoever took Offred, wasn’t the resistance.
So where does that leave us?
Not entirely without hope it seems. She still appears pregnant and in one later scene in the trailer we see her setting fire to something – perhaps clothes or documents.
“So much of this season is about motherhood. We’ve talked a lot about the impending birth of the child that’s growing inside of her as a bit of a ticking time bomb. The complications are really wonderful to explore,” actress Elisabeth Moss said on a recent press tour as reported in Variety.
