Mr. Whitford is a minor character in televison adaptation of The Handmaid's Tale. He is the escape agent of June's family.

After the takeover Edit

June's mother, Holly, performs a vasectomy on Mr. Whitford two years after such procedures were made illegal. He later helps her daughter's family escape from Gilead because he thinks he still owes her[1].

June, Luke and Hannah try to escape to Canada and hide in the trunk of their car while Mr. Whitford drives them to a secluded cabin near the border. Mr Whitford tells them he still needs to grab them Canadian passports, because U.S. passports "don't mean shit no more". Before he leaves, Mr. Whitford teaches Luke how to shoot a gun, which he is clearly uneasy about. June and Luke later learn from a local hunter (whom Luke and June encountered earlier that day) that Mr. Whitford was caught by the Guardians and hung from a street lamp in town.[1].
