'The Handmaid's Tale': Finale event brings questions and answers

“The Handmaid’s Tale,” based on Margaret Atwood’s 1985 novel, envisions America after a second civil war, and focuses on handmaid Offred (Moss), a.k.a June, who has been forced into child-bearing servitude for a prominent couple. And although the dystopian nightmare facing the handmaids in the theocratic Republic of Gilead (formerly America’s East Coast) has grown more oppressive and violent, the second season has featured themes of growing rebellion among the captives.
