The Handmaid's Tale Season 2 Episodes

Season 2 Episode Guide

13 Episodes 2018 - 2018

At the beginning of Season 2 of the drama series, Offred (Elisabeth Moss) is taken to Fenway Park where she and other handmaids are supposedly going to be hanged. Aunt Lydia (Ann Dowd) comes to her rescue and promises to help her as long as she doesn't do anything to jeopardize her pregnancy. Resigned to her fate, she's finally rescued for real by Nick (Max Minghella), who has her brought to a safe house. As the season progresses, Offred struggles with her hopes of helping her daughter and her sense of duty towards her unborn child. While the situation in New Gilead gets even more dangerous for handmaids, life as refugees in Canada is also not as easy as it seemed: Moira (Samira Wiley), now living with Luke (O.T. Fagbenle) in Canada, has trouble adjusting.
