Lovers of the THE HANDMAID’S TALE on Hulu have been on this totalitarian journey with protagonist June (Elisabeth Moss) for four seasons now, and this fourth season has certainly kept the stakes high for June – who is now (spoilers alert if you’re not caught up) on Canadian soil still fighting her battle to get justice for those who were left behind and those loss in Gilead, testifying against Fred and Serena who are now captive in Canada, and hoping to gain freedom for her beloved Hannah who remains in Gilead.

Two of the highlights for me this season were watching the reunions of June and Moira (Samira Wiley) and June and Rita (Amanda Brugel). Since the women hadn’t shared much screen time for a while, it was a joy to also witness the actresses together in those moments.

Being a fan of the series since its beginning, it was a great pleasure last week to sit on the AAFCA virtual roundtable and chat with Wiley, Brugel, and executive producer Warren Littlefield about the show, and ask both Brugel and Littlefield (Wiley was late and I went first, so didn’t get to ask directly, sobs softly…) about who they think is most responsible for the horrors in Gilead.

Watch the video below for their responses and check out the full video now streaming on the AAFCA Channel on YouTube.

Until next thought, Thomasena
