“We are still here. Stars and stripes forever, baby.”— Oprah Winfrey (in a cameo appearance) encouraging opponents of the regime
Radio Free America is an oppositional broadcast station airing in the Gilead-controlled territory of New England. The host is Former talk show host Oprah Winfrey.
In the office of Commander MacKenzie, June Osborne, left alone at the MacKenzie house finds keys to the garage. She goes to the garage and finds a preserved 1975 Chevrolet Camaro. She starts the car, tunes the radio and hears Radio Free America announce that the US Capital in Anchorage has received aid from India and China; that the UK has imposed more sanctions on Gilead, and that it is also planning to raise the limit on American refugees relocating from Canada. The announcer then says, "the next tune is to remind everyone who is listening, American patriot or Gilead traitor, we are still here. Stars and Stripes forever, baby." Bruce Springsteen's 'Hungry Heart' begins to play. The song makes June smile, and seems to give her hope. "Got a wife and kids in Baltimore, Jack....I went out for a ride, and never went back. Like a river that don't know where it's flowing, I took a wrong turn, and I just kept going." June strokes her belly and talks to her baby as she considers her next decisions.
