Gilad's violent and theatrical justice has taken revenge on her, but it's not sure it's the right ending

From the beginning of the fourth season in the saga "The Story of a Slave" until the shaky end, it becomes clear how the trauma of life under the terrorist regime never stops, and how its cruel logic continues to exist beyond the border - but behind the revenge that comes at the end lies a depressing question.

Trailer "The Story Of A Slave" Season 4 (Hollow)

One of the most powerful moments of Season 4 in the "Slave Story" saga took place in a regular-looking Canadian supermarket.

The most simple, everyday and ordinary experience turned for the protagonist John into a scene from a horror movie full of flashbacks to the shopping centers in Gilad.



The supermarket - a site of choice from variety, of abundance and of random encounters with citizens from other backgrounds, and no less of some serenity and normalcy - evokes reminders of places where all of these simply do not exist.

This idea is well remembered from the movie "The Burden of Pain," for example, where the American veteran, a war veteran in Iraq, is unable to withstand the silence that awaits him in front of the refrigerators in the huge supermarket.

In this way, the trauma extends far beyond the geographical boundaries, to every good part of the being.

The new season of "The Story of a Slave" admits a truly cruel one: Gilad is here to stay

This idea underlies the fourth season. We wrote about it after watching the first few episodes, and at the end it's much clearer (spoilers from now on). Gilead does not invade Canada in the physical sense, but her logic is present culturally, above the surface with Waterford fans, and below the surface in the lives of the survivors - who find it difficult to return to a "normal" life, choosing between "reconciliation and recovery" and anger. The climax that comes along with the lynching of Fred Waterford reveals that even the violent, barbaric and theatrical justice of eye for eye and tooth for tooth (and finger for finger), is still part of the regime's refugee life system.



Waterford's iconic ending, which corresponds with a few key moments in previous seasons (wall hanging, graffiti, chase, collective killing, finger amputation and of course Leslie Gore's "You Don't Own Me" that accompanies the episode), is perhaps television-impressive - but Unreasonably plot-wise.

After all, Gilad was expecting a prisoner, would the regime not understand what happened to him on the way and by whom?

How will Joseph and Nick extricate themselves from this?

Wouldn't John be required in reformed Canada to take responsibility for the murder?

Equally important: revenge may be sufficient, but does not the moral victory over Gilead require a different kind of justice?

Is this not exactly the victory of Gilad's murderous terror on the brakes of liberal democracy?

Will you receive a symbolic punishment?

The end of the fourth season - in the declared hope that the fifth will be the last in this cruel epic - leaves us with final question marks about some of the main characters. Serena Joy is the most enigmatic: will the series give her a symbolic punishment, and take from her the unborn child, or has she already received her punishment? Will she herself accept responsibility for her actions, or will she continue to zigzag according to the occurrences between remorse and pride? On the other hand, it can be estimated that Aunt Lydia, even if Janin aroused some lost compassion in her, would not leave us with a good return and would be required to pay a painful price for her cruelty. On the other hand, Janin (and Esther), as well as Hannah, still need to be rescued from Gilead - but no lifeline for them is in sight.



In the middle are Joseph and Nick. In the last season their characters have been greatly reduced to side and quite instrumental partners to various conspiracies, including John's, and they are supposedly collaborating with the side of the good ones. Either way, both are active accomplices in Gilad's crimes, and even the most brutal of them. It's hard to believe that the series will not punish them severely for this despite the sympathetic tone towards them last season. In one of their meetings, Nick tells John that it's a shame he did not run away with her when he still could. There is no hint more meters than that.



And there is John, the brave, vengeful leader, whose anger fills her to the brim.

Joseph tells her in the last episode that even if Fred is betrayed to Gilead and punished as much as he is punished, it will not be enough for her.

Now that the commander is dead, it is difficult to assess whether she will embark on another route.

John left Gilead but she lives inside, and the years under the terror regime left her with such a deep imprint that she can not (does she want to?) Leave them behind, and she even draws strength from them: she even told Waterford that she misses Shelfred sometimes, and did not look happy This season like she was in a meeting with Nick.

If so, the fifth season will tell us as much as possible how the struggle for human survival continues deep into the life after the rescue, with the central question being just who will win: John or Gilead.
