‘The Handmaid’s Tale’: Samira Wiley Says Moira and Luke Will Have Different Reactions to June as Season 4 Continues

There is only one episode left of season 4 of The Handmaid’s Tale, and the season finale will premiere on Hulu on June 16. So far, the fourth season of the Hulu series has demonstrated how much June Osborne (Elisabeth Moss) has changed due to her time in Gilead. This has made it incredibly difficult for her husband Luke Bankole (O-T Fagbenle) and her best friend Moira Strand (Samira Wiley) as she attempts to acclimate to Canada.

Samira Wiley Reveals ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Season 4 Scene That Was Hardest to Film

The Handmaid’s Tale Season 4 was already in production when the pandemic hit. Safety restrictions forced production to shut down for six months. For the fans, that meant a delayed release of season 4. But for the cast and crew, that meant losing the chance to film during the summer instead of winter like they’ve had to for every other season. The unexpected changes resulted in one scene having another layer of difficulty, according to Moira actor Samira Wiley.

Samira Wiley Says That Moira Just "Wants Everyone to Heal"

In last week’s episode of The Handmaid’s Tale, the series lead, played by Elisabeth Moss, steps foot in Canada for the first time with the help of her longtime friend, Moira, played by Samira Wiley, but only after a long-awaited reunion and a narrow escape. When Moira happens to find June in the rubble of Chicago following a bombing, she smuggles her out on the boat of her girlfriend’s humanitarian NGO, disguises her as part of the staff, and then convinces her to complete the journey home, with June nearly jumping ship to go back and find her daughter Hannah.

Samira Wiley on The Handmaid's Tale reunion: "June is the missing part of the puzzle to Moira’s happiness"

"Before I received the scripts for the season, I had a conversation with Bruce Miller, our showrunner, to talk through Moira’s arc and run down what was going to happen," says Wiley. "So, it got dropped on me then. And, I thought he was kidding at first! It was the best news ever. Fans have been wanting this and waiting for this, patiently, for so long, so I feel like they deserve this. But I also feel like, as an actor, I deserve this! The Handmaid’s Tale got sold to me that I’m going to be able to act with Lizzie Moss! And that’s what I fell in love with, being onscreen with Lizzie. Because she really, really has made me a better actor."

Samira Wiley on ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Reunion She Was Waiting For: “The Missing Part of the Puzzle”

[This story contains spoilers to the sixth episode of The Handmaid’s Tale‘s fourth season.]. When the star-crossed best friends in The Handmaid’s Tale finally set eyes on one another, those are the first words June (Elisabeth Moss) can offer to Samira Wiley’s Moira. In a state of shock and likely concussed after surviving a bombing in the streets of Chicago, June is laser-focused on finding her other friend Janine (Madeline Brewer), who disappeared amid the blast. At the episode’s end, Janine is still missing. But the sixth installment in the fourth season of the Hulu drama makes major strides for Moira and June, the friends who have long been at the heart of the series and who have been separated since the end of season one.

Spoilers for season 4 episode 6 of The Handmaid’s Tale, “Vows” below. When Moira (Samira Wiley) first laid eyes on June (Elisabeth Moss) in this season of The Handmaid’s Tale, you could almost hear fans let out a long, collective scream.

So when the two stumble into each other on the streets of Chicago, fate (or a heartstring-pulling writers’ room) seemed to be giving both characters a final chance at freedom.
