Chucky And Tiffany's Child Glen Explained

If there is one new show that viewers should be tuning into, it is the "Chucky" television series for USA and SyFy. This show came up fast and furious and is doing everything right. "Chucky" is correcting what the unfortunate 2019 "Child's Play" remake got wrong. Brad Dourif has returned to voice the iconic character all with the same humor fans are accustomed to. He appears with all his murderous tendencies as well as deciding to be the life coach to middle school loner, Jake.

In a recent episode of the series, Chucky mentions his gender fluid child. This is an important distinction. Not only is the "Chucky" series within movie canon, but Chucky is pro LGBTQ. If fans have not seen the more recent "Chucky" films, including "Seed of Chucky," they may be wondering how this child came to be. Glen is Chucky's child with leather-clad partner Tiffany. To understand this character, viewers also need to understand Chucky's long history with Tiffany and how Glen came to be.

Chucky and Tiffany's relationship

There are quite a few movies before Glen becomes relevant. Chucky goes on a reign of terror for three films before his love interest even appears. In "Bride of Chucky," the viewers are introduced to Tiffany. She is the former lover of Charles Lee Ray when he was still a human. However, Tiffany becomes aware of Chucky's doll body and procures the remaining parts so she can sew him back together. Tiffany thinks that Chucky was going to propose before he died, but Chucky has no interest in marrying Tiffany.

Instead he transports her soul into a doll of her own. Chucky's main concern is to find a way to get his soul back into a human body. Along the way, Chucky and Tiffany consummate their relationship. The mechanics of how Chuck and Tiffany are able to conceive life in doll form is subject for confusion. Regardless, at the end of "Bride of Chucky," they are unsuccessful in transforming themselves into human bodies. Instead, Tiffany gives birth to their child.

Glen vs. Glenda

Chucky and Tiffany's child returns in "Seed of Chucky." After their deaths in "Bride of Chucky," their child uses an amulet to resurrect them. Initially confused about how they have a child, they decide to overlook it and accept Glen as their son. This is a reunion of sorts between Brad Dourif (Chucky) and Billy Boyd (Glen), who appeared in Lord of the Rings as Grima Wormtongue and Peregrin Took, respectively. 

Soon, they realize that Glen is not their only child. While attempting to transfer their souls into people, Chucky and Tiffany discover that Glen has another personality. While Glen is sensitive and avoids violence, the other personality is Glenda, who is a sadist. Glen and Glenda struggle with their dual personalities. Glen/Glenda becomes emotional, confused about what they are in life. "Seed of Chucky" is surprisingly progressive toward this issue. Tiffany caresses Glen/Glenda's face in comfort and brings sensitivity to a story about gender confusion.

Jennifer Tilly has twins

In a meta approach to the movie, Jennifer Tilly voices Tiffany and also portrays herself in a fictionalized version. Chucky and Tiffany decide that they will impregnate Jennifer Tilly with Chucky's semen. This is successful, and Jennifer Tilly has an exceedingly progressed pregnancy and gives birth quickly. Chucky and Tiffany are surprised to find that she delivers twins.

Chucky accepts himself as a doll and doesn't want to be transferred into a human body, but Tiffany is adamant to be transferred into Jennifer Tilly. In a final showdown, Glen kills Chucky. Tiffany then successfully transfers herself as well as Glen and Glenda into the human twins. This is the last time that Glen and Glenda are seen in a live action film. However, because Chucky has referred to his child in the "Chucky" television series, it is more than likely that some version of Glen and Glenda will show up again.
