The Repercussions of the Finale
It should come as no surprise that the second season finale will be a launching point for what's to come. There are a lot of moving parts in that final sequence, in which June nearly pulls off the perfect escape.
Of course, Rita is the one who orchestrates the affair through an underground network of Marthas, but Nick is there to help June along. Then we have Serena, who sees the whole thing going down and eventually releases her hold on Nicole, the daughter given to her by June. During a Summer 2018 screening of the season two finale, showrunner Bruce Miller said she may have regrets about that decision. "I'm not sure whether she'd be so quick to let go of the idea of a child just because she made a decision in a moment."
Meanwhile, Amanda Brugel is ready for this emboldened Rita. "At the end of Season 2, I know where she's going," she told Vulture. "Now I have her voice, so I'm ready to use it."
Then there's Commander Lawrence (Bradley Whitford), who also has a hand in June's near-escape. "You never know what he's willing to do and what he's not willing to do," Miller told The Hollywood Reporter. "He seems a little gone, with a glint in his eye. So that makes him very tough to predict, what he's going to do. He can be helpful, or not so helpful. That's the kind of character we like, someone who is interesting and consistent, but in the end, unpredictable in some really basic and important ways."
As for Nick? He's probably going to be lying out of his ass to make sure he's safe. We've got so many fingers crossed. For everyone.
