Season 6


Having survived the attack by the the Wolves, Betsy is among the surviving townspeople to gather by the front gate and damaged wall panel. She is in a complete state of shock and stares at the wall, completely despondent over her recently deceased husband, David. As she and the others listen to Rick and Aaron addressing the crowd regarding the attack, she is briefly comforted by fellow widow Jessie Anderson. A short time after the speech, Betsy and two other women create a memorial on one of the wall panels and paint the names of those lost during the attack and the compromised redirection of the walkers from the rock quarry.

Later that day, Betsy commits suicide over the loss of her husband and having no will or reason to live. When Jessie walks by Betsy's house, she realizes something is off about her home and approaches the front door. At the window, she discovers a reanimated and bloodied Betsy and proceeds to put her down as other residents watch in horror.
