It’s pretty easy to guess what most fans would want for her at this point: A ticket right back to Gilead, where she becomes a Handmaid after she gives birth. They know that she can reproduce and pretty early on, we have to assume she’ll learn that Fred is dead.
Have you watched our video review for The Handmaid’s Tale season 4 finale yet? If not, what are you waiting for? Watch that below and SUBSCRIBE to Matt & Jess on YouTube! That’s where we have reviews of the full season, and there’s also coverage happening for The Bachelorette, Animal Kingdom, Power Book III: Raising Kanan, and more this summer.
Here’s the thing about Serena Joy, though: She’s smart. She was always the more terrifying villain than Fred because she’s manipulative and finds a way to get on top of any situation. She’s a planner and an enforcer rolled all in one, and you have to figure that she’s already had a plan in the case that something happened to Fred. (Could that involve Mark? We know there are theories out there aplenty on that already.)
Speaking via TVLine, here is what Yvonne Strahovski herself had to say when asked if Serena was already thinking towards her future:
One thousand percent. Oh yeah. I feel like she’s got that planned out in her brain already. She’s always five steps ahead in some way, shape or form…
I can see her becoming a political figure, and having success with her fan club in Canada, or something, you know? [She could] keep preaching what she used to preach, pre-Gilead. I can see her totally taking control, and being that person. But then again, I really think the fear of God is going to be put into her when she finds out what’s happened.
Let’s just all collectively cross our fingers and hope that season 5 shows us that moment where she finds out — if they don’t, what are the writers doing with themselves? You gotta have that in there!
