- "Sorry, Spence, I thought-"
- —Barret to Spencer-Lee
Barret Deems, also known as Bear or simply Deems, is a character appearing in The Walking Dead: Return to Woodbury. He is described to have a bald, scabby pate and thick neck. He was the right-hand man of Spencer-Lee Dryden and part of his convoy as well.
Almost nothing is known about Deems' life prior to the outbreak. He used to be a Georgia State Building janitor.
It is unknown how Deems made it to Spencer-Lee's convoy. However, he became his right hand and one of the most trusted allies.
Soon after Lilly throws "The Musolino-Thing" in to Deems' car, it starts to feast on him. Deems loses the control of his camper and drives it off the road, finishing himself, presumably zombified Musolino and later on couple other survivors from both sides.
They had a good relationship. Deems took the job of being Dryden's right-hand man.
