Holly is a vocal feminist who loves her daughter but also judges her sternly. In the Margaret Atwood book on which the Hulu series is based, there are strong indications that Holly was shipped to The Colonies after Gilead came into existence. As previously reported, Season 2 will show viewers The Colonies, a penal area exposed to massive amounts of radiation where those who break Gilead’s rules are sent to work. It’s also where we’ll meet Marisa Tomei’s previously announced mystery character, who’ll appear in Episode 2.
