The New Characters
In season three, we have two brand-new characters who do not appear in the novel. That means they have to play a pretty significant part in the plot moving forward, right? Up first, we have Christopher Meloni as Commander Winslow, "a powerful and magnetic Commander who hosts the Waterfords on an important trip." By his side is his wife, Mrs. Winslow, played by Elizabeth Reaser. She becomes "a friend and inspiration to Serena Joy." Could the Winslows be part of the redemption of the Waterfords in the eyes of Gilead, or could they be another step toward their impending downfall? Jury's still out.
