Although the season finale leaves the upcoming events open-ended, there’s speculation that viewers have already witnessed the death of the series’ protagonist, June.
Some fans have taken to an extensive discussion thread to suggest some intriguing theories for how the highly anticipated season four will unfold.
Reddit user isabelmustdie said: “I kind of hope she dies honestly. There’s no logical way for her to go back to Gilead as a handmaid, so she either goes in hiding or is killed.”
Adding credentials to this theory, other fans have pointed to the original ending of Margaret Atwood’s novel of the same name, in which it is kept ambiguous whether June (or Offred) survives her oppressive ordeal as a handmaid.
