There is no out. Gilead is within you.

Is this what freedom looks like?

So begins this rather harrowing trailer for The Handmaid’s Tale‘s second season, and so too do all the other questions that go along with an adventure in Gilead.

Of course, this being The Handmaid’s Tale and all means this trailer clocking in just under two minutes is filled with harrowing, heart-racing stuff. In fact, we’ve now watched it multiple times trying to glean some answers to the following pressing questions: Who is the Commander (Joseph Fiennes) threatening to shoot in the woods? Does Mrs. Waterford (Yvonne Strahovski, eyebrows still amazing) really still believe in the cause? Will Aunt Lydia (Ann Dowd) ever give it a rest? And why is there a mass handmaids hanging? Aghhhh!

The Handmaid’s Tale returns to Hulu on April 25 to begin to answer some of these. See you there.
