The story of the maid Season 5, Episode 7 focuses on the reunion of serena and June, after Serena saved her rival’s life and betrayed her colleagues from Gilead. Driving aimlessly away from this event, the two women find themselves in the wilderness with Serena showing all the signs of labor. These tense scenes are punctuated by a flashback in which June and Serena witness a traumatic birth in Gilead. It’s another stunning episode in which the two main actors give excellent performances while struggling with these unprecedented circumstances. Here’s what happened in episode seven of The story of the maid:

  • June drives Serena away from the crime scene. Serena points her gun at June while June wants to know what’s happening. Serena orders her to just keep driving, but is in agony herself. She accidentally fires her gun and June decides to flee.
  • Serena chases after June, but subsequently crashes the car into a ditch. June goes back to see if Serena is okay. She’s clearly in labor and about to give birth. June takes her to a nearby barn with her car immobile.
  • A flashback focuses on June and Serena’s visit to see a birth in Gilead. However, the maid struggles and begins to bleed profusely. The maids surround her and pray, but she faints. The doctors operate and save the baby, but the maid dies.
  • June tries to help Serena give birth, but she doesn’t want to be touched. June goes back to the car to fix it, she tries everything but it won’t budge. Finally, she gets it moving by placing a car mat underneath, supported by a wooden post.
  • June returns and helps Serena give birth to a beautiful baby boy. Serena names the baby Noah. Serena asks why June didn’t kill her when she had the chance. June replies, explaining that she didn’t mean to kill her. They discuss Noah’s future and why Serena isn’t going to the hospital. (Spoiler)
  • Serena admits she was held hostage by the Wheelers, who treat her like a maid. She thinks they will take her baby away from her. June is still urging Serena to go to a hospital before she dies. They have no food, no water, and it’s dangerously cold in the barn. Serena asks June to take care of Noah for her, accepting that she has no other options. But June makes her rounds. (Spoiler)
  • At the hospital, Serena and Noah are taken away. Later, Serena and the baby appear to be doing better. Canadian authorities arrive and arrest Serena. She is to be detained and her baby taken away from child protection. She screams and asks June for help. (Spoiler)
