Season 5 of The Handmaid’s Tale may have just begun, but as we all know, time flies! The end of this new season is near, and it will soon be time to say goodbye to our favorite characters. Every episode and news report appears to be a flash that keeps us on the tip of our seats. After these recent episodes, we’re left wondering: how will it all end? Hopefully the next episode will answer some of the issues raised by last week’s episode. Here is when The Handmaid’s Tale Season 5 Episode 9 will air. Times are enlisted below.

Season 5 Episode 9 Will be Available Tuesday Night or Early Wednesday Morning

The ninth episode of Season 5 of The Handmaid’s Tale will broadcast on Hulu at midnight Eastern time on November 2nd. Not familiar with this time zone? To make things easier for everyone from coast to coast, a bulleted list of time zones is provided below:

  • Eastern time: 12 a.m. Wednesday, November 2nd
  • Central time: 11 p.m. Tuesday, November 1st
  • Mountain time: 10 p.m. Tuesday, November 1st
  • Pacific time: 9 p.m. Tuesday, November 1st
  • Alaska: 8 p.m. Tuesday, November 1st

As a result, people on the West Coast and in Hawaii are more likely to watch the show before bed than to remain up late. If you’re fortunate, you may be able to see the programme on Tuesday evening, however others may have to wait until Wednesday. Nonetheless, one thing is certain: avoid reading spoilers. When others can see the performance before you, this is the most difficult thing to accomplish. Avoid using social media!

How to Watch S5E9 Online

If you need to catch up on missed episodes, Hulu has the most recent ones. The ninth episode of Season 5 of The Handmaid’s Tale may be viewed similarly to the previous eight. 

By checking in and doing a search, you may discover “The Handmaid’s Tale.” You may begin Season 5 immediately if you so want. If you have already seen the previous eight episodes, you may go directly to the ninth. 

(If you are certain that Episode 9 has been published, but it does not show in the menu, you may use the following approach to display it: Hulu will transport you to Episode 9 if it is available if you watch Episode 8 and fast-forward to the end.)

There are no plans to bring The Handmaid’s Tale to Netflix, nor is it available on any other streaming platform, including Amazon Video and YouTube. At a minimum, over a lengthy period of time. Given that The Handmaid’s Tale is a Hulu original series, this makes perfect sense. 

If you do not already have Hulu, you may sign up for a monthly membership instantly. When Live TV and Disney+ are bundled together, one of the offered bundles becomes a very tempting option. Potentially, students might subscribe to Hulu for $2.99 per month. Click this link to see whether you are eligible for one of these fantastic deals.

What Happened Last Week

To see a full recap of last week’s episode, check out our review here

Below is a quick refresher. 

Serena struggles with her new situation, but ultimately (after talking to June) decides it’s best to go back to the Wheelers. She’s going to play the role of a Handmaid and put herself in subjugation to them, until she can figure out a way to escape with Noah. 

While June feels sympathy for Noah, she recognizes now that sympathy for Serena is misplaced. They’re not friends, she reminded Serena, and she’s glad she’s suffering because it’s truly karma. 

As for June, she was just about to turn herself in to Gilead and enter New Bethlehem so she could be reunited with Hannah. But then Tuello reveals that a video that was sent to her helped them pinpoint Hannah’s location, and they’re mounting a rescue mission. Wow! 

Meanwhile, Commander Lawrence is still hard at work on his New Bethlehem plan. He revealed in this episode that he wanted to save humanity and used the religious zealots to make it happen. But then things got out of control under them, and he’s hoping New Bethlehem can be a means to reel things back in. 

But I wonder if his plans will work or not? And is Nick on his side, or is Nick wanting out himself?
