THE ENDING OF THE HANDMAID’S TALE SEASON 5 EPISODE 6 IS EXPLAINED
Serena sets out to murder June with Ezra at the end of The Handmaid’s Tale Season 5 Episode 6. She aims at her adversary and makes her kneel.
Instead of murdering June, Serena shoots Ezra and flees the scene, forcing June to drive her car. Although Serena desires to murder June, she prefers her freedom and that of her unborn child at this time.
Ryan & Alanis’ obsession with Serena’s unborn child suggests that they see her as a servant to them.
They must plan to take Serena’s baby away after she gives birth, which explains why the Wheelers installed a “birth suit” in their home.
Serena’s thirst for vengeance will be satisfied by killing June, but she will have to return to the Wheelers and become their servant.
She needs help to avoid this, and who better than June, who has overcome all the obstacles that have threatened her life?
Serena needs to find a safe place to get away from the Wheelers at the end of The Handmaid’s Tale Season 5 Episode 6, and she can force June to find one by threatening to kill her.
Serena knows she won’t be able to care for herself or her baby on her own now that she’s pregnant.
Having June by his side at gunpoint will aid him in devising an escape strategy. As a result, Serena decides not to murder June because survival takes precedence over vengeance.
Nick and Lawrence can save Putnam at the end of The Handmaid’s Tale Season 5 Episode 6, but they choose not to.
The impregnation of the maidservant verbally assigned to him does not result in anyone being executed in Gilead, but the commanding duo ensures that it is for Putnam.
Lawrence will be able to carry out his plan, making Gilead more accessible to other nations, if he kills Putnam.
