The Handmaid’s Tale’s Elisabeth Moss hints June and Luke will never rekindle romance after horrors of Gilead
THE Handmaid’s Tale’s Elisabeth Moss has hinted June and Luke will never rekindle their romance in series four after the horrors of Gilead.
The couple were torn apart when June was captured and Luke escaped to Canada in series one, not knowing if the other had survived the war.
Elisabeth, 38, said too much time has passed and June's feelings lie with Gilead solider Nick (Max Minghella), who fathered baby Nichole.
"With June and Luke there are three versions of these characters," she told TV Line.
"There are the ones that exist in the flashbacks, there are the ones that came into Gilead and then there are the ones that exist now."
“And I think this is true of Luke as well, I think he is a different person to the one when all of this started and June is 100 per cent a different person.
“Part of the reason she and Nick love each other is that they both have been through the same war.
“And having not been there and him having not, how could he possibly understand what that is really like?
“And so that is what she and Nick have; they went through a war and they will always have that.
Nick fathered baby Nichole – and is Ofred's former lover. But many of his scenes were cut from season three.
Fans hoped they'd find out the truth about the undercover Gilead soldier who had an affair with June in season one and secretly fathered her daughter in season two.
He was then promoted to Commander and deployed to Chicago, making him absent for much of the latest series.
Miller revealed he was forced to scale back Nick's scenes, noting the move felt like "s**t".
Speaking about Max Minghella's brooding officer, as well as June's fellow Handmaids Janine (Madeline Brewer) and Moira (Samira Wiley), the producer said: "We just don’t have the real estate in the show.
"We would love to delve into more stories. We had all sorts of other stuff with Nick, and with characters like Janine and Moira."
