―Bailey thanking Michonne for giving them the courage to leave their group.[src]

Bailey is a survivor of the outbreak in AMC's The Walking Dead and The Ones Who Live. He is a member of the Nomads, a transitory caravan of survivors.


Bailey is selfless and brave, being willing to put his life on the line for his friends and especially his girlfriend Aiden. His first encounter shows him with an injured ankle, which was revealed to be because he was out looking for honey for Aiden. He is grateful to Michonne after she saves him and Aiden and joins her on her mission to find Rick despite the risk. Tragically, he ends up being bitten by a zombified Aiden despite being warned not to sleep next to her, implying that he didn't want to live without her.


Location Unknown[]

Nothing is known about Bailey's life prior to or as the outbreak began.


At some point following the outbreak, he joined the Nomads.

"What We Become"[]

As Michonne Grimes and her pet walkers trudge through the wilderness, an injured Bailey and his companion Aiden suddenly emerge from the trees, startled to see Michonne. They cower in uncertainty and fear at first but Aiden pleads for help from Michonne, indicating they need to re-group with their caravan seen in the distance. She states that they need help and the caravan won't wait for them, to which Michonne agrees. After dispatching her pet walkers, she assists Bailey and Aiden and begin the trek to meet up with caravan.

The Ones Who Live[]

Season 1[]


Aiden, Bailey, and Michonne succeeded in getting back to the caravan and enter a meeting with Aiden's sister, Elle. As Elle annoys Michonne by trying to get her to a join a community, Nat storms in and confronts Elle about leaving Aiden and Bailey behind. However, Aiden catches Nat's attention and the three are happily reunited. Bailey explains Michonne saved them after he hurt his ankle.

Later, Aiden and Bailey bring Michonne Elle's horse which is one of the best. Nat pleads with Michonne to spend the night so that he can properly equip her and show Michonne how to use the equipment properly. Michonne agrees and an excited Nat starts giving Aiden and Bailey orders on crafting something while he walks Michonne through the screamsticks.

The next morning, as Michonne is about to set out, she questions why Bailey, Aiden, and Nat stay with the caravan if they don't like their rules. Bailey admits that they're just too scared to change. Michonne tells Aiden, Bailey and Nat that she's glad to have met them and they wish each other luck before Aiden and Bailey leave.

As Michonne is faced with a giant herd, two explosions go off and the herd splits, each half going towards one of the explosions, which opens the path for Michonne. Turning around, Michonne finds several of the caravan's vehicles and Aiden and Bailey leading Michonne's horse back over to her. Bailey explains that they were tired of the carvan's rules and left with others who felt the same way to look for her.

At night, the Nat's Group camps out and Michonne's friends tease her about getting knocked off of her horse by the Gasman. Michonne asks about the purple light, and Nat explains how Bailey and Aiden had wanted to go after Michonne which he finds to be insane for a multitude of reasons, but they'd had enough. Michonne thanks her friends, and Bailey thanks her in turn for waking them up, calling it a big move for himself and Aiden. Michonne promises Aiden, Bailey, and Nat that when she gets Rick, they will all come home with her to Alexandria. Bailey goes to get Aiden some food over her objections, which leads to Michonne realizing that Aiden is pregnant. Aiden explains that she had been craving honey, which was why Bailey had been out there when Michonne found him and Aiden. Aiden starts crying, and Michonne comforts her, suggesting that Aiden and Bailey should head for Alexandria immediately with some of the others. However, Aiden tells Michonne that they will go there after she finds Rick.

As the group stops to clear an obstacle, a CRM helicopter flies overhead and drops Chlorine Gas bombs on the town. Recognizing the deadly gas, Nat yells orders for everyone to cover their mouths with fabric and to wet it with their canteens. Nat's Group quickly falls victim to the gas, dying and reanimating. Struggling to breathe in the toxic cloud, Nat picks the lock on an abandoned mall and Michonne, Aiden Bailey, and Nat enter. Michonne, Bailey and Nat help Aiden, who is the worst off, to a bed in the mall. Knowing that Aiden has a low chance of survival, Michonne orders Bailey to find something to tie his girlfriend to the bed, warning him not to fall asleep next to her.

Unfortunately, Aiden eventually dies and reanimates. Despite Michonne's warning, Bailey fell asleep next to Aiden and bit him, causing him to reanimate as well. Michonne finds a zombified Bailey reaching over a burning countertop, and stabs him through the head. She collapses along with his body in her severely weakened state.
