However, things were a lot more intense between the pair in earlier seasons, as Serena would be physically violent towards June and emotionally blackmail her with her daughter Hannah Bankole (Jordan Blake).
Moreover, with Serena Joy being the wife of Commander Waterford (Joseph Fiennes), to whom June is forced to conceive a child with, her interactions with the handmaid almost pushed June over the edge.
However, series creator Bruce Miller revealed this makes it all the more interesting to watch.
He explained: “Just the power dynamics between a wife and a handmaid are fascinating, complicated, and so malignant and so flammable.”
The Handmaid’s Tale season three is now available to stream on Hulu.
