In the screenplaythe three suitors were condensed into a single character, Gaston. In this version, Gaston was depicted very differently.
Do they ever deserve a redemption arc?
There is the Commander and his ilk. The religious dogma that grips what once was America. Without the mind of Serena Joy Yvonne Strahovskithe regime would never have been able to be created, and without the fist of Aunt Lydia Ann Dowd it would never be upheld.
Make no mistake, the men of Gilead are villains who all deserve to go out in a firey, painful blaze. Serena has grown to be a complicated character in season two, but the fact remains that she was also involved in the creation of Gilead and was just as responsible for the violence as her husband.
When she suffers for her actions by losing her voice and her ability to use her mind in Gilead, it is also equally difficult to feel sorry for her because she built her own cage. The more she rebels, the more likable she becomes.
This is not to say that all female characters need be likable, but she becomes someone to root for as she and June push the boundaries of what is expected of them. When the Commander punishes her for her rebellion, we ache for her in the same way we ache for June Elisabeth Moss as she endures torture after torture, because we want her to succeed in her rebellion.
Serena then manages to un-do all the good will audiences have built up for her by encouraging the Commander to brutally rape June to induce labor. Serena is content to have things go as they were as long as she has a child, until she realizes her system of oppression will impact her daughter.
Serena is not motivated by kindness towards other women. She has minimal empathy for June, and that varies episode to episode. Other than that, she shows no compassion for other handmaids or Marthas or wives.
She only cares about her own life, and the life of her daughter. What makes her interesting is her selfishness and her focus on only her own survival.
On the other hand, Aunt Lydia is a character who we can love to hate, or even just simply hate. She does not merely stand by as atrocities are committed, she actively engages with them. She tortures women, celebrates their sexual slavery and forced pregnancies, and idealizes the world of Gilead.
She is not given the same backstory as Serena is, so we do not know where she is coming from or what made her a true believer. She and the other aunts who uphold the laws of Gilead are as complicit in the atrocities committed as the soldiers and leaders are.
They are oppressing other women, and are happy to do so. The show does not shy away from holding these women equally responsible for their actions.
In the second episode of season two, Emily poisons one of the wives Marisa Tomei who is sent to the Colonies for adultery. Again, this is not to say the women in the show are as truly evil as the men.
Commander Waterford is the worst and deserves to be viciously murdered by June and Serena Joy. Maybe Serena can scrape together a redemption arc before she meets her fate, but she does not deserve a happy ending in the end. The show has to hold her accountable for all the grief she has wrought, and in turn, make a statement that being complicit in oppression makes you as guilty as those who actively oppress and commit violence against others.Linda Taylor, the haughty thief who drove her Cadillac to the public aid office, was the embodiment of a pernicious stereotype.
