No one ever accused The Handmaid's Tale of being optimistic, but as the Season 2 finale approaches, fans are starting to hope that June will finally get a happy ending. In Episode 11, June delivered her baby, Holly, and as we've seen throughout Season 2, she's more than willing to fight to give her daughter a better life. Will June escape Gilead? And if she does, will Hannah and Holly make it out with her? Fans have been speculating about what will go down in the final two episodes in Season 2, and surprisingly, their theories will give you a little bit of hope.
In Season 2, The Handmaid's Tale has gone to darker places than fans could have ever imagined. We've seen multiple brutal rape scenes, watched Serena Joy and Fred's relationship implode, and learned about the lengths Gilead is willing to go to suppress rebellion. Each episode, June's situation gets progressively worse, so it's natural to think that Season 2 is heading towards an equally dark resolution, but judging by these fan theories, that may not be the case. These five theories about The Handmaid's Tale will actually make you happy — a huge feat for a show that manages to disturb fans week after week.
