"I'm clean now. I've got a safe place to sleep every night and I have people who are nice to me. And I want to keep it that way."
          - Ofglen #2 interrupting a clandestine conversation between her predecessor and Offred.[1]

Ofglen #2 is a recurring character in The Handmaid's Tale (TV series). She is a Handmaid who replaces the arrested Ofglen #1 (Emily). Her real name is Lillie Fuller.

In the TV Series Edit

Offred prepares to meet Ofglen #1 outside, but it is a different woman, who introduces herself as Ofglen[2].

While grocery shopping, Offred and a few other Handmaids run into Ofsteven (formerly Ofglen) where she learns about Mayday. Ofglen #2 grabs Offred before she can learn anything else. She tells Offred that she used to be a junkie, and that she likes being a Handmaid because she has a safe place to sleep and her masters are nice.[1]

All of the Handmaids are called to come together to stone someone who endangered a child. To their surprise, that someone is Janine. The Handmaids hesitate and Ofglen #2 is brutally beaten by a guard when she breaks rank and voices her angry refusal to Aunt Lydia. The other Handmaids, beginning with Offred, drop their stones, each saying "I'm sorry, Aunt Lydia" (a phrase they were taught early in their indoctrination). Aunt Lydia promises that they will all be punished and sends them home.[3]

It is later revealed that Ofglen #2 has her tongue cut out as punishment for speaking out against stoning Janine.[4]

At the opening of the new Rachel and Leah Center, Ofglen #2 breaks away from the other Handmaids present and enters the building where Commander Fred is making a speech to Commanders from many different districts. She shows the Handmaids outside a detonator, causing them to run from the building, before running towards Commander Fred and detonating a bomb, causing a large explosion that appears to kill many of the people that were inside the building.[5]

After the bombing, Rachel Tapping reports the names of the deceased during a conference in Little America. Her true name is revealed to be Lillie Fuller.[6]
