Commander Daniel Monroe is a minor character in the first season of the TV Series. He serves as a Commander in the Republic of Gilead, as well as (presumably) being a member of the Sons of Jacob. He is married to Emma and is the head of the second household in which Janine is enslaved as a Handmaid.
In the Present Edit
Season One Edit
Commander Monroe attempts to conduct the Ceremony with his wife Emma and his new handmaid, Janine (Ofdaniel). Janine, however, is experiencing severe difficulties adjusting to both her new surroundings and the loss of her daughter to Commander Putnam and his wife, and pushes Daniel away, reverting to a child-like state and insisting that "he" (Warren) is coming for her.
Season Two Edit
Monroe's status in the aftermath of the attack on the new Rachel and Leah Center is unknown, although he may have been one of the twenty-six Commanders killed.
