At the bar, Offred treats herself to a Manhattan, hopefully with top-shelf liquor, but while The Commander continues to make advances, she suddenly sees a familiar face across the room —Moira! She's alive and sadly working nights in the lounge. Offred catches her eye and excuses herself to The Little Handmaid's Room, and finally, after so long, they reunite. It's actually extremely touching: the two collapse in sobs, Moira feeling terrible to have left Offred behind at the train station, and Offred just relieved that her friend is alive at all. They both have to return to their companions but plan to meet up again later that night. Offred rejoins The Commander in the lobby, and he wastes no time whisking her upstairs to a hotel room.
