The latest wild-ass season of epic dystopian drama series The Handmaid’s Tale needed an equally wild-ass finale and the last ep of season 4 certainly delivered.

In last night’s finale, the show’s villain Fred Waterford (portrayed by Joe Fiennes) finally got what’s coming to him after years of wreaking havoc on women through barbaric torture. His death was rather poetic as it was at the hands of the almighty protagonist, June Osborne (played by Elisabth Moss) as well as a crew of other Handmaids.

The episode, written by Bruce Miller, was titled ‘The Wilderness’ and had viewers absolutely reeling because it was so damn satisfying to see the evil overlord finally get his in spectacular fashion.

One fan even likened the “satisfaction” to the season 4 finale of The Handmaid’s Tale to that of the season 6 episode 9 of Game of Thrones.

Speaking to Variety, The Handmaid’s Tale showrunner and writer of the finale ep, Bruce Miller, broke down the death scene.

“We did a ton of research about what would actually happen all the way through in terms of June, in terms of how they would be trying to flip Fred, which is what they’ve been trying to do since the beginning,” he said. “And then we use that research to make good creative decisions to make it as dramatic as possible. But in terms of kind of trading one person for a bunch of rebels, in terms of how porous the border is and how easy it is for people to communicate and actually move back and forth if you’re a man and if you’re a military person, those things are all true. It’s a lot more permeable, it’s a lot more of a no man’s land. So that part is all true and the physicalness is as true as we could make it.”

That being said, there’s still a ways to go in the future.

“Sometime we think if X happens, everything will be all right: ‘Once Trump is gone, once the pandemic is over, things will be fine,’” he said. “But life doesn’t work that way.”

The Handmaid’s Tale is now streaming on SBS Demand.
