However, it was too difficult to figure out what’s happening in the scene. Although, the lead actress Elisabeth Moss, who plays June on the show, was present in the lot of handmaids. She kneels before Commander Waterford (Joseph Fiennes) and Serena (Yvonne Strahovski). In a scene, a bunch of handmaids pull her while Moss yells a loud cry.

On the other hand, Emily, played by Alexis Bledel was also seen on the location. Speculations say that she appeared to sport a baby bump. Season 3 may explain Emily’s side of the story. In the previous season, she escapes from Gilead with June’s newborn daughter. Fans are still wondering about the contribution of all these scenes in the new season.
The Handmaid’s Tale Season 3: Trailer
Hulu recently released the official trailer of The Handmaid’s Tale Season 3. The short video features the rich and powerful women taking care of their newborn babies. They even go to work now, and their condition is stated to be improved than before.
Contradictory, the handmaids are treated like animals and are merely used to bear the children of the power-hungry leaders. Although this time, they seem ready to fight the wrongdoers. The narrator of 1984’s original TV show says, ‘It’s morning again in America,’ while talking about the powerful women. On the other hand, June bravely ends the statement saying, ‘Wake up, America. Morning’s over.’
This hints that the handmaids are up with something. Also, the third season may portray them seeking revenge over the greedy leaders. The exact plot of the series is still unclear.
