Whispers Into Screams

Later at the Hilltop, she is tending to horses with Maggie, where the latter expresses her concerns for being left in the dark about developments.

Brianna is present when Maggie and several other Hilltop members meet Pamela Milton for the first time, and is just as shocked as everyone else to find out Michonne was reunited with her daughter at the Commonwealth.

Rest In Peace

Brianna is seen watching Hershel with Maggie, who is expressing her worries over the Commonwealth. Brianna asks why Maggie didn't go with the scouting expedition she sent out. Maggie replies that she can't be away from Hershel for so long. Brianna reassures her and tells her to have faith in her people, but Maggie tells Brianna it's Pamela she doesn't trust and wonders if their entire army should've been sent to the Commonwealth instead of just one expedition. Brianna tells her if she feels like she should, then she should just do it, which prompts Maggie to go to the Commonwealth along with the Militia. She is later seen alongside Maggie, looking after Hershel.

After Rick Grimes' death, she is among the many people seen mourning and accompanying his casket back to Alexandria.

Brianna is mentioned by Sophia during the visit to Earl Sutton's home, when she asks him if he would want to move back in town, because there's a community for the old people he would like. Brianna is mentioned to be resident of that community, thus confirming her survival of the Trials.

Killed Victims

This list shows the victims Brianna has killed:

  • 7 unnamed Saviors (Alongside her fellow survivors)
  • Numerous counts of zombies


Maggie Greene

"You believe in Rick Grimes... Well, hopefully by the end of all this... We all will. Then I'll believe in Maggie Greene, too."
—Brianna to Maggie[src]

Brianna introduces herself to Maggie when the latter is mourning Glenn at his grave. They both have a conversation about how they lost people, and how it feels after months and years into the apocalypse. Brianna mentioned that she enjoyed talking to Maggie and stated she liked her more and more. Later Brianna is shown to be extremely supportive of Maggie after she takes the Hilltop's leadership from Gregory. Maggie often trusts Brianna to care for and babysit Hershel Jr.


"He's sweet on every girl before they go tell him to fuck himself. Guy's a creep."
—Brianna to Maggie, regarding Gregory[src]

Brianna doesn't like Gregory and thinks he is a creep for flirting with the women in the Hilltop. It is likely he tried to flirt with her sometime in the past.


Brianna and Dante have a positive relationship. They often jest with each other and are seen together often due to their proximity to Maggie. Brianna encouraged Dante to reveal his true romantic feelings to Maggie. While she refers to him as a "goofball" she admits his stories liven things up and make easy to pass the time.

  • Brianna had one of the largest known families before the apocalypse.
  • Upon their introduction, Brianna mentions losing a boyfriend a few weeks prior to meeting Maggie. This coincides Ethan stabbing Gregory after having returned from a failed supply drop that resulted in Andy and David being killed and Crystal being taken hostage, so it's possible she was in a relationship with one of the expedition members.
  • Brianna is the only named female character to be still alive in the Hilltop Colony.
