- "I know what those monsters are out there are... Wendigo. Grandma told me about them. It's what happen when someone... eats another person."

Chesapeake Bay, Virginia
In the early days of the apocalypse, Alex and his family (assisted by Sam's childhood friend Paige) barricaded their house with a large gate and wall to keep themselves safe. About a year before he met Michonne, his mother committed suicide, though he was never told this.
Alex is first seen inside his house, concerned about the condition of his sister Sam, when she is brought in by Pete (Determinant) and Michonne. He watches as they work to heal Sam's bullet wound. His brother James then asks where their eldest brother Greg is. Michonne then informs them of their brother's death. Alex begins to cry, quickly comforted by his father, who is also distraught at the loss. He later visits his mother's grave, soon carried to his room by his father.
Alex is seen hiding in his closet, listening to his music box. Michonne finds him, talking to him about his father (Determinant) and brother's deaths. He is later seen at his father's grave mourning him, alongside his remaining siblings. When Norma arrives with what's left of her group, Sam had Alex hide in the closet with James so they will be safe. When the house catches fire, he's trapped in the closet, Michonne coming to his aid. They then flee to the back bedroom, and Sam helps him escape through the window. If Sam died in the fire, (Determinant) Alex will be upset, hugging James and Paige for comfort. He is last seen being carried to Pete's boat by Paige.
