Season 4 of ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’: Samira Wiley Knows Moira’s Dream Ending Isn’t Going to Happen
Moira Strand, played by Samira Wiley, has carved out a relatively quiet life for herself in Season 4 of The Handmaid’s Tale. June is the last thing she needs. However, Moira learns in episode 6 that her peace will not be as easy to keep as she had hoped. Wiley shared her ideal ending for Moira in a recent interview. But she’s also well aware of how Gilead can derail even the best-laid plans once you’ve escaped its clutches.

What happens to Moira in Season 4 of “The Handmaid’s Tale”?
Moira is raising Nichole, June and Nick’s daughter, with June’s husband, Luke, in Season 4 of The Handmaid’s Tale. Moira also assists her girlfriend, Oona, with humanitarian work (more on that later). She’s even found fulfillment in assisting Gilead children in their assimilation to Canada.
When all is said and done, Moira feels secure in her post-Gilead life. But it’s taken her a long time — both physically and emotionally — to get to that point. And she’s also haunted by the shame of escaping Gilead without June in the first season. Moira says in a trailer for Season 4 that she won’t rest until Gilead’s slaves are free.
“I was prepared to do whatever it took to make it through and out from the start,” she says. “However, even though I left, I knew that I’d never be free of Gilead until we all made it out.”
Luke’s Mental State is in “Mortal Jeopardy,” according to Season 4 of “The Handmaid’s Tale.” O-T Fagbenle, an actor, says
Moira and June must return to normal in ‘The Handmaid’s Tale,’ according to Samira Wiley.
Moira’s activism in Canada contributes to her joining Oona on a humanitarian mission to Chicago. They fly by boat from Canada to the war zone to help, arriving just as Gilead is dropping bombs… This is a condensed version of the plot. I hope you found it entertaining.
