So she tells Janine goodbye and leaves. When June and Janine are fighting to survive, the top commanders of Gilead, including Commander Lawrence and Commander Nick Blaine have come up with their own sinister plan. They plan to drop bombs in Chicago and 24 hours later, they want to call a ceasefire in an effort to begin trade talks with Canada.

Chicago is emptied on the day the commanders conspire to drop the bombs. Though it is the same day that June decides to pursue her own journey. As she walks on the empty streets, she begins to get a frightful feeling about the place and Janine arrives out of nowhere. Turns out, she didn't want to be left behind and will accompany her fellow handmaiden. Unfortunately, though, this delicate moment is split apart by bombs falling from the sky.
