Season three of The Handmaid’s Tale concludes on Hulu tonight as June Osborne (Elisabeth Moss) tries her best to defeat the Gilead regime in any way she can.
However the return of one character could lead to a devastating blow to June as she tries to save the children.
Fans awaiting the dramatic finale have began speculating over how season three will come to a close and what’s in store for the caring handmaid.
Nick Blaine (Max Minghella) returned to the drama earlier in the series but has been fairly absent over the last few episodes.
Could Nick turn up in time to save June from doing something stupid in her bid to protect the children?
Reddit user neil525 predicted: “I just feel like the finale will end with Nick showing up to stop June and in the process, June gets shot.
“They did say this season doesn’t end good for Nick and June’s relationship.
“Well, if Nick appears at all.”
Other fans joined in the discussion and speculated over June’s fate in the season finale.
“That or Nick gets shot and that’s how the plane gets away,” pinkroseginger theorised.
“Like Nick’s final act for June is making sure her plan succeeds with his sacrifice?”
imnohelp2u added: “I think June will escape, leaving Nick behind and that’s why it doesn’t end well.
“I think in a confrontation, Nick will end up letting June go.”
The pair, who share a baby together, have a complicated history but his return could lead to dramatic scenes.
Will June be shot as she tries to save the children or will Nick sacrifice himself to help June?
Meanwhile, fans have already begun speculating over what’s next for June when the show returns for season four.
Despite handmaids being banned from marriage in the cruel regime, some fans believe the new season will see huge changes.
Reddit user XTeena9 has theorised June could marry Commander Joesph Lawrence (Bradley Whitford).
They began: “Could June marry Lawrence? Assuming the game is to stay and find Hannah, and stay protected while doing so…
“But the question is – could they find a loophole to allow for such a union?”
The Handmaid’s Tale season 3 finale returns to Hulu next Wednesday and airs on Channel 4 in the UK every Sunday at 9pm.
