June was able to arrange a deal for 22 women and resistance fighters jailed in Gilead after season four following a successful negotiation with Commander Lawrence and Commander Fred Waterford (who are now detained in Canada). Waterford was consequently released into No Man’s Land, where he was hunted and beaten to death by June, Emily, and other former handmaidens.
According to actor Joseph Fiennes (Waterford), “I believed it truly achieved the climax that I felt, and believe my cast-mates felt, was required and deserved for the viewers.” His demise will surely have huge implications for season five, as we will witness in the lives of June and Waterford’s pregnant wife, Serena Joy, in the upcoming episodes (Yvonne Strahovski).
According to Strahovski, her “jaw dropped to the floor” when she first read the conclusion during an original interview with Entertainment Weekly. “It’s the most satisfying season finale that Handmaids has ever had for me, so it’s quite thrilling,” she remarked.
