In an interview in January, Elisabeth Moss (Offred) noted how the upcoming episodes would focus on [spoiler] her pregnancy and what it means to be a mother in Gilead’s dystopian society.
“So much of the season is about motherhood,” she told reporters during Hulu’s Television Critics Association press stop. “It’s a bit of a ticking time bomb. And the complications of that are really wonderful to explore…. It’s a dark season. I would say, arguably, it’s darker than season one — if that’s possible.”
The new clip shows us glimpses of perhaps that bomb’s metaphorical explosion. Offred is covered in blood and in the background her voice speaks utter shock: “Seriously? What the actual fuck?”
The first two episodes of the second season will hit Hulu beginning April 25th.
