Episode six of The Handmaid’s Tale, titled Vows ended with June (Played by Elizabeth Moss) taking her first steps in Canada as a free woman. Despite being reunited with her husband Luke (O.T. Fagbenle) and best friend Moira (Samira Wiley), June’s daughter Hannah (Jordana Blake) is still in Gilead and in order to move forward she may have to forget about her.
In a new interview, showrunner Bruce Miller has spoken about how June will try to forget what she has left behind in Gilead.
Could that include her eldest daughter Hannah who she tried so hard to free?
Bruce explained: “Any story that June is connected to or feels responsible for or has influence over, we’re still going forward with those stories.
“It’s part of our world and part of June’s story, especially Janine and Lydia and all of these other people she’s left behind.
“It’s not like she’s left them behind anonymously; she left them behind in a state.
“We still have lots and lots of stories and dynamics and I wanted to make sure I left a core of people.
“The venom is high [for some] and the connection is high, so all of those people, it’s like there’s a June-shaped hole in their life and they’re all filling it in a different way.”
In terms of adapting to her new life Bruce added “When June was in Gilead, her memory of Luke and home was what sustained her and gave her strength and was her anchor.”
“Now it’s swapped: she’s feel so at sea in Canada that her thoughts of Gilead are so much more grounded and easy to understand.”
Bruce added to Variety that he wants June to “forget about those people and move on with her life”.
Could she forget about Hannah and try to move on with baby Nichole and Luke?
Bruce’s comments also hints to the fact that now June’s in Canada with a network of support she will be able to focus on avenging the other victims of Gilead.
However this could be a hard adjustment for June, as she was the only mastermind behind all her plans of her attempted escape.

The Handmaid’s Tale: Elisabeth Moss lands major role away from Hulu [NEWS]
Before June made it onto the boat in episode six she was adamant on staying in Chicago to rescue Hannah.
It was Moira who lightly forced June to sneak onto the rescue ship by saying: “When we get back, we can work on trying to get her out.”
After many failed attempts to rescue Hannah, this was June’s only option.
Fans of the hit Hulu show will remember the colossal episode where June led a handful of Marthas and over 50 children to freedom in season three.
On one attempt June made it into Hannah’s room where she was asleep but could only cry as she tied a piece of red string on Hannah’s wrist.
This was because Guardians had pulled up outside the house, so she knelt outside the door with her hands on her head waiting to be detained.
Another attempt was when June convinced a housebound Eleanor Lawrence (Julie Dretzin) to take a walk to Hannah’s school in Brookline.
However this plan fails as only Eleanor Lawrence is allowed inside the building, leaving June waiting at the gates.
With all these failed attempts perhaps it is only right for June to move on with her new life in Canada.
It has proved too risky to rescue Hannah and bring her to freedom, plus a return to Gilead will undoubtedly have June on the wall.
Maybe June will take Moira’s advice and plan Hannah’s rescue with the others in Canada.
The Handmaid’s Tale is available to stream on Hulu now.
