The Handmaid’s Tale Season 4: Will [Spoiler] survive?
The Handmaid’s Tale saw June and Janine find a temporary place with a resistance group, but it didn’t last for long. Did they both get out alive?
Caution: There are spoilers in this post from The Handmaid’s Tale Season 4, Episode 5.
After getting away from Aunt Lydia again, June and Janine found themselves at the mercy of a resistance group. Naturally, this group didn’t trust any of them, but that started to change during the most recent episode. However, June wasn’t willing to stick around for too long.
June is on her own mission, and she needs to get out of Gilead this time. It’s a matter of life or death, but there are many people who want to keep her in Gilead. So, she decided to leave the resistance group behind.
Initially, Janine stayed behind, but she later joined June to escape. It was time to free herself from everything around her, but that’s when the airstrike came. We ended the episode with June waking from the airstrike but no Janine. And while we’re excited that Moira and June have found each other, we’re worried about Janine.
Has Janine died in the airstrike on The Handmaid’s Tale?
Let’s be honest; it’s highly unlikely the series has killed Janine off. Especially in that way!
There wasn’t a body. We haven’t seen Janine even hurt, let alone dead. So, with that in mind, Janine is still alive.
There’s a good chance we’ll see her during the next episode. June isn’t going to leave Janine behind, is she? While she was willing to leave Janine with the resistance group, will she really leave her friend potentially injured and dying? Well, admittedly, June has made some highly questionable decisions, but she has formed a bond with Janine.
Alternatively, Gilead has recaptured Janine. That could lead to Aunt Lydia arranging to have Janine tortured for information since Gilead will want to know where June is. It seemed like Episode 4 had foreshadowed this with Janine saying what she wouldn’t have done had she been captured. Well, maybe we’re about to find out.
