‘The Handmaid’s Tale’: What Fans Really Hope to See in Season 4

Fans can’t wait to see season 4 of The Handmaid’s Tale. With a premiere date nowhere in sight, fans have still found the time to discuss what they hope to see in the upcoming season of the hit Hulu series. Read on to learn more only if you are caught up with the show because there are spoilers ahead.

More flashbacks for side characters

Many viewers would like to see more flashbacks for side characters and the smaller roles on the show. The series has been very focused on June (Elisabeth Moss) and there’s still a lot we don’t know about many of the other people stuck in Gilead and even those in Canada.

Fans chimed in about what they would like to see moving forward in the series. “More about the other handmaid’s including flashbacks for Moira, Alma, Dolores, Janine even Nathalie. Edited to add Brianna,” a Reddit user wrote.

Many users agreed that flashbacks are clearly necessary. “I would love to see more flashbacks like we had of Aunt Lydia,” someone else said.

“I really want to see a Commander Lawrence flashback. How did he get mixed up in all this?” another Reddit user agreed.

“Flashbacks of Commander Lawrence and his wife pre-Gilead and during the formation. It would be good to know just how much input Lawrence had,” someone also said about Commander Lawrence (Bradley Whitford).

Another user brought up a great point about seeing Americans abroad in the beginning of it all. What was it like for them? “Would love to see Americans abroad when the coup happened….did some try to return or did they have the sense to stay put?” another user said.

The downfall of Gilead

Many fans all over the world are ready to see Gilead get destroyed. It’s been a long time coming and it seems like the perfect opportunity to show some battle scenes.

“I want to see the rest of the world landing troops on Gilead’s coasts, improvised bombs being detonated everywhere, and paratroopers dropping over Gilead’s cities,” a Reddit user wrote.

Reactions in Gilead now that the children are gone

After that explosive season 3 finale, fans can’t wait to see how things will play out in Gilead. June successfully got the children out and to the safety of Canada, but at the cost of her own safety and almost her life. Viewers are freaking out and want to know how the people in charge of Gilead will react.

“I want the season to open with reactions of the commanders and wives realizing the kids are gone. I want to see them suffer the way they have made the handmaids suffer,” another Reddit user wrote.

Fans want to see more Nick

People are craving more Nick (Max Minghella) in their future, especially involving a reunion between him and June. ”I would love a Nick/ June reunion where they’re upfront with each other and make a solid plan together on how to go forward with a rebellion or an escape,” someone wrote.

“I missed Nick a lot in season 3 I hope they show more of him,” another Reddit user agreed.

“More Nick. The reason I say this,” a Reddit user started. “For anything highly egregious in each episode you look to the grounding force. Nick has been that. I realized that after June went through everything that she could never be understood by Luke because he wasn’t there & didn’t witness the ****ery. I think Nick’s story is more complex, I hope they develop him more & god ****** make June & Nick fight the good fight together.”

Hopefully fans will get some answers in regards to what’s going to happen when season 4 premieres of The Handmaid’s Tale.
