- "We can fix it. (...) I know it may not be perfect, but it's better than stopping in a different place every day. It's better than going out on a run and not even knowing if your home is still gonna be there when you get back. I've lived like that before, June. We both have. I don't wanna go back to that. (...) Is it really that different? (...) Yeah. I thought the same thing then."

Nothing is known about Charlie's life prior to or as the outbreak began, except that she attended school, her favorite subject was music, and her favorite food was pizza. She also had a mother and a father.
Charlie stumbled upon the Dell Diamond settlement after her camp had caught fire and her family went missing. After living there for approximately two weeks, Madison speaks with Charlie in the stands but she does not reveal much to Madison, except a few details about school and food preferences. She is warmly welcomed by Madison, who then proceeds to build a home for Charlie in the dugout.
Charlie spends most of her time with Nick, watching him as he deals with weevils destroying crops in the gardens. She is also seen playing with a walkie talkie before Nick hesitantly takes it away from her.
Charlie's suspicions about her family are confirmed when Madison and her group return from investigating Charlie's former camp, having found no trace of her family.
At night, Mel and the Vultures show up outside the settlement, and it is revealed that Charlie was working as a spy for the Vultures, gathering information about the Dell Diamond. After being praised by Mel for her work, she is sent to relax inside a bus while the Vultures surround the settlement.
Later, as she hangs out in her bus, Luciana approaches the bus and drops off a book for Charlie, who looks on with sadness.
Charlie is first seen in a flashback, when Madison and Nick were at a church looking for supplies. Madison attempts to speak with Charlie, but she ignores her blatantly. After Ennis makes a rude remark to Nick about food scarcity, Charlie watches in fear as Nick attacks Ennis.
In the present, after finding out that Nick killed Ennis, Charlie shoots him in the chest. At first she is in shock and is sad about it, but runs away before Alicia and Luciana arrive to a wounded Nick. They attempt to revive him, but he dies.
In a flashback, as Madison speaks with Mel in the parking lot, Charlie and Ennis sit on a bench and laugh as they eat.
Charlie arrives with the rest of the Vultures at the horse track where they find Alicia's group armed and ready for a confrontation. She witnesses Alicia fire the first shot that hits John Dorie in the chest.
During the firefight between Alicia's group and the Vultures, Luciana finds Charlie cowering behind a car. Though Charlie tells Luciana she's sorry, Luciana tries to kill her before being interrupted by the appearance of Edgar, allowing Charlie to escape. A short time later, as Morgan, Naomi and John Dorie prepare to make their escape, Morgan spots Charlie heading for the blown-out ambulance and stops her, telling Charlie that Mel is dead and she will only survive by leaving with them. Charlie reluctantly joins the escape in Al's van.
On the road away from the horse track, Charlie recognizes Morgan as one of Nick's friends and is shocked that he saved her after what she did. Morgan tells Charlie that the conflict has to end somewhere and Charlie explains to everyone that the fall of the stadium wasn't Naomi's fault, it was hers.
In a flashback, Charlie returns to the stadium to enlist their help to save a badly injured Melvin. After Melvin is exiled on his own, Charlie is shocked by the decision as she knows Melvin won't make it on his own and is allowed to contact him via walkie. When all Charlie can get is pained noises, she convinces Nick and Alicia to go after Melvin and help him. Charlie is with the stadium survivors when Ennis suddenly launches an attack with oil-soaked walkers.
In the present, Al's group returns to the stadium to find it overrun with hundreds of burned walkers which surround the SWAT van.
When Althea's group arrives at the stadium, Althea agrees to watch John Dorie and use her guns to clear a path for Naomi and Morgan Jones to reach the infirmary, but warns that she only has enough ammunition for one try at it. Althea brings the SWAT vehicle as close as possible and clears a path while Charlie keeps watch. When Alicia's group shows up, Althea exchanges fire with them before retreating into the vehicle to treat a bleeding John. Alicia takes Charlie hostage and orders Althea to tell Naomi that it's safe to come out of the tunnel.
Al picks up the walkie and tells Morgan and Naomi that it's safe to come out. She distracts Alicia while John quietly presses the transmission button on the walkie, allowing Naomi and Morgan to overhear Alicia and realize they're walking into a trap. Strand informs Alicia that Naomi has not emerged from the tunnel. Alicia sees the walkie next to John and realizes what happened. Alicia and Al fight in the SWAT van. Charlie hears John coughing and urges Naomi and Morgan to hurry. Alicia surrounds Naomi and Morgan and aims her gun at Naomi and accuses her of contributing to Madison's death. Morgan convinces Alicia to relinquish the weapon. Alicia breaks down in tears.
Charlie, Alicia, Strand, Luciana, Althea, June and John sit around a campfire. Althea begins filming and asks what happened at the stadium. Alicia tells Althea that Mel took their Land Rover. Charlie explains that Mel only took the Land Rover to get her to safety. Alicia's group tells Althea that Madison killed herself to save them, causing everyone to break down in tears over the story. Al lowers her camera and writes "Madison" on the interview tape. The group eats ramen around the campfire.
In the month or so since the fall of the Vultures, Charlie has settled with John Dorie and June in an abandoned bus and has stopped talking. Charlie is sitting in the bus when Morgan tries to convince John and June to join him in traveling to Alexandria. While near the river, Charlie is ambushed by a walker and doesn't call for help, but is saved by Al who has come to check on the group.
Later, John visits Charlie and asks to play Scrabble with her. Sympathetic with Charlie who he believes has gone silent out of guilt over killing Nick Clark, John tells her about how he went silent for awhile after a similar incident in his own past until he found June and told her about what he had done which allowed him to forgive himself.
As John leaves to deal with a walker, Charlie packs up her books and leaves the bus. As John and Victor Strand search for her, Charlie appears at Victor's house and runs out without saying anything when Luciana spots her. Luciana then finds that Charlie has left her The Little Prince and races into the storm after Charlie.
Charlie is encountered by Alicia, who discovers her occupying the same abandoned house as her in the middle of the hurricane. Alicia tries to grab Charlie, but Charlie escapes and locks herself in another room. Alicia tries to break the door down at first, but has no luck. From there, Alicia changes her tactics and begins to guilt Charlie, commenting on how she an awful person and that Alicia hopes that Charlie will live for a long time so she has to carry the guilt with her. However, Alicia notices that the family of walkers that she killed earlier have been covered in sheets, making her think again about her actions.
Alicia then goes to Charlie for help with nailing shut the window covers to prevent damage to the windows. Charlie helps her, and heads back upstairs to sort through the pictures of the dead family who lived in the house, and Alicia begins to become agitated by this, and tells Charlie to come downstairs so she can dry her jacket off. Alicia discovers Charlie's gun. She threatens Charlie and asks her if she came to finish the job, and then sends her away.
Upstairs, Charlie sees a walker that is impaled on a tree branch right in front of the upstairs deck. She goes out and interacts with it, allowing it to grab her with little resistance, before Alicia arrives and pulls her away. Shortly after this, Alicia tells Charlie that she now realizes that the gun wasn't for her, it was for Charlie. Alicia says that Charlie probably had the right idea (killing herself), but Alicia won't let do it. Charlie finally speaks up, asking Alicia why she saved her and Alicia states that she doesn't know, and that she's gonna have to live with it. Alicia also says that Charlie shouldn't be expecting forgiveness from her.
The two then eat dinner, and Charlie begins to ask Alicia a series of questions about her life, mainly about California and the beach. Alicia is irritated at first, but soon realizes that Charlie has never been to the beach before, and asks her for confirmation. Charlie says that when she reads, she tries to visualize what the beach looks like, and states that she and her parents were supposed to go to Galveston for vacation, but the outbreak then happened. Alicia tells her that the last time she was at a beach, it was overrun with the dead, and it was just another reason to keep running. The two finish dinner and Charlie goes to sleep.
Alicia later notices that Charlie isn't where she went to sleep, and goes to find her. Charlie is found again with the photos of the dead family, and becomes upset when Alicia tries to pull her away, stating that someone might come back for them. Alicia says that whoever cared about them is dead, and Charlie insists that she can't know, and states that she knows that she's garbage, but she wants to do this. Alicia finally relents, telling Charlie to do what she wants.
Charlie later joins Alicia downstairs as Alicia tries to start a fire, and Charlie tells her that the wind is getting stronger. Charlie has also brought the family's photos with her. Alicia tells her to stop, and says that she knows what Charlie is going through, quoting Madison's phrase, "No one's gone until they're gone." Alicia then tells Charlie that she's been trying to believe it as well, to feel better about the things that she's done, but she can't, "Because sometimes when you're gone, you're just gone." Alicia then tells Charlie that the family is definitely gone, and Charlie asks her why she cares.
Before Alicia can answer, Walkers break through one of the windows, and Alicia tells Charlie that they need to go to the basement, which has flooded a great deal. They go down there, see the flooding, and Alicia runs back up to try to get out, but the wind slams the door in her face, knocking her down the stairs. Then some of the ceiling collapses, blocking their way out. The two then try the other exit to the basement, but it's locked with a chain. Alicia tries other ways to get them out, but quickly gives up, all while the water level steadily rises.
From there, Charlie begins to becomes increasingly hysterical as she tells Alicia that she doesn't want to die and turn into a walker. She tells Alicia how she saw her parents after they died and turned, and she can't remember their faces from before that. She begs Alicia, who refuses at first, to shoot her, but Alicia eventually raises the gun, ready to kill Charlie, but then starts crying, and tells Charlie that she can't kill her. The two hold each other's hands as they prepare to drown, but something falls on the outside door, and the two escape the basement. They run out and notice that the walker impaled on the tree branch fell on the door, and Alicia shoots "him" in the head. Charlie notes that "he" saved them.
Charlie later approaches Alicia after Alicia has buried the walker family next to each other. Charlie asks Alicia if she did her for Charlie or for herself, and Alicia states, "I did it for the people who could come back." Charlie then offers Alicia her gun barrel weapon, but Alicia tells Charlie to keep it. She then asks Charlie if she's good at finding things, and Charlie responds affirmatively. After Alicia leaves the family's photos by their graves, Charlie says that she can see Madison in Alicia, even if Alicia can't her in herself. Alicia tells Charlie that she left Morgan in the storm, and abandoned everyone else. Charlie then tells her that she's good at finding things.
The two drive away from the house, and Alicia tells Charlie to close her eyes. Alicia then describes the beach to Charlie, and through this, Charlie is able to remember her parents' faces. The two arrive at Strand's mansion, only to find it abandoned. They then go to John and June's bus, only to find it overturned and abandoned as well. Charlie tells Alicia that they need to find and help them, but Alicia tells Charlie that they don't even know if they're alive, and tells her, "They're gone." Alicia also tells Charlie that things won't get better, and will continue to get worse and they'll experience this until they're not around to see it happening. An injured walker then comes out from behind the bus, and shuffles towards them. Alicia takes her weapon back from Charlie and stabs the walker through the head. She then tells Charlie to come with her, and the two leave the site.
After finding one of the boxes, Charlie and Alicia contact Morgan on the radio. Alicia tells them she found the channel from the box. Morgan tells her to wait at the mile marker and that they are gonna pick them, when suddenly, Martha radios both of them and warns Morgan for not taking her advice. She pulls the truck beside them, opens the gun hatch and opens fire.
A shocked Alicia and Charlie are left wondering what happened.
Charlie and Alicia discover the charred remains of the semi on the road along with several walkers corpses. Alicia consults a map and decides they will head east. She and Charlie get in their car.
A while later, Alicia and Charlie run out of fuel. They abandon the car to look for more. After walking a few miles, Alicia finally admits to Charlie that she is not looking for Morgan and the others, but instead, she's taking Charlie to Galveston to see the beach for the first time.
In the woods, Charlie insists to Alicia that they turn around to find Morgan and the others. Alicia explains that she wants to take Charlie to the beach because she needs something good to happen. Suddenly, they hear water nearby. Alicia and Charlie arrive at a lake created by the flooding. Charlie finds John's hat. They look across the water and smile.
Charlie and Alicia wave at John and Strand from across the pond, when suddenly Alicia hears June on her walkie. She tells her the good news while Morgan warns Alicia to watch what she says because Martha might be listening. He also informs them of their roof situation. Charlie and Alicia head out to locate a boat to rescue John and Strand.
On the road, Charlie and Alicia discover a kayak tied to the roof of a car when suddenly they come under fire from Martha. She tells them she's been listening to them and that she can make them stronger. Alicia attempts to reason with her to let her help, but Martha yells that she doesn't need any help, before collapsing due to her wounds.
Later, Alicia uses the SWAT truck and plows it through the lake to rescue Strand and John as the two men take a swig from their bottle in celebration. Charlie returns John's hat and he commends her for talking again.
After reuniting with the rest of the group, Charlie watches as Alicia and the others contact Morgan on the radio, telling him they're going to save him. Morgan looks down and sees their plan: a fire truck.
While Morgan tosses his stick down and gingerly begins climbing down the building, Alicia, June, and Luciana draw a herd of walkers and barely make it back to the fire truck alive, only to find Martha missing.
As the group gets surrounded by walkers, Jim decides to sacrifice himself to save them. Before he does, he radios Sarah the recipe for his beer. She writes it down, Jim takes a deep breath, and throws himself off the ledge and onto a car, attracting the walkers away from the fire truck.
On the road, Sarah decides they should name the beer "Jimbo's Beerbos" in his memory. Morgan proposes they find Althea and then travel to Alexandria together.
After the group finds Al, they sit around a campfire and Morgan describes his plan to pick up more boxes at the truck stop to distribute them en route to Alexandria.
The next day, the group arrives at the truck stop and stocks up on supplies from the store. Outside, Althea loads the van when some walkers approach. Al jumps down to fight them, but is too weak and passes out. Alicia shoots at the herd and then instructs everyone to get inside as the noise will attract more.
Inside, everyone doubles over in pain as more walkers scrape at the windows. June realizes that someone opened the water bottles in the store and poisoned the water. Al deduces it was Martha.
Finally able to communicate, Morgan tells them it's anti-freeze. June tells them the antidote is ethanol and the group hatches a plan to get it from one of the trucks outside.
Charlie and June create a distraction while the rest kill the walkers and push forward. Althea jumps in her SWAT truck and machine guns the walkers outside, while accidentally putting holes into the tank and causing the ethanol to drain out.
June updates Morgan on their problem and he tells them he can't lose them. John encourages him and says he's strong with or without them.
Suddenly, Morgan shows up and reveals that he brought a truck of Jim's Augie's Ale, saving the day. The group drinks the beer and suddenly regain their strength. John jokingly warns Charlie that this is the last time she drinks a beer until she is 21.
Morgan then brings Charlie and the group back to the place he left Martha. He finds her severed arm attached to the police car and sees her turned, walking on the road. He stabs her in the head and then buries her.
Morgan tells everyone he's no longer going to Alexandria. He says that Martha became the person she was because nobody helped her when she needed it and that more people need help.
The group arrives at Clayton's supply factory and Morgan says they should follow his path and help others. Alicia says it can't just be about boxes, they need to build something like Madison would want. Althea suggests they can start with the people she interviewed.
Shortly after, Charlie and Luciana open the gates as the group mobilizes a convoy of vehicles outside the factory. They load up on ammo and head out. Morgan gets on his walkie and broadcasts that they are coming to help anyone who might be in need.
Four months after using the denim factory as a headquarters to distribute the supply boxes, Charlie and the group have had poor luck in finding or recruiting other survivors, with many of the people interviewed on Althea's tapes dead or missing.
On the road, Charlie and Strand ride in Al's armored truck side by side with Sarah and Wendell's truck towards the factory following Althea's distress call asking them to find a man with a second plane using a tape labeled “Skidmark.”
At the factory, Charlie and the others discover Logan and his crew has taken over the place and are forced to leave at gunpoint. That night, Sarah and Wendell drink outside the factory and lament their failure. Charlie says she can find a way in and Strand vows to get the mill back. He wishes he was on the plane but vows to get on the next one and reunite with the rest of the group.
At night, Charlie is sent inside Daniel's warehouse to check out his plane. She finds it and radios Strand, Sarah, and Wendell. Suddenly, Skidmark finds her and starts meowing, causing Daniel to investigate. Charlie hides in Daniel's new car but Skidmark follows her as he approaches and loads up the truck with guns. Strand wants Charlie to run but she insists on staying as Daniel leaves in the truck.
In the morning, Charlie listens to Daniel and Strand's conversation as he tells Charlie to show herself, which she does. "I am going to save her from you," Daniel tells Strand. On the road, Charlie asks if Daniel set up the traps in the stores and he says he hasn’t, so she asks why he's been disarming them. "You ask too many questions," he says, as he plays a cassette on the boombox. Charlie recognizes it and the two begin to bond.
Arriving at the next trap location, Daniel is left stuck when he finds a herd of people in the store who had fallen victim to the trap. Charlie offers a suggestion on how to avoid the trap based on her own experiences and Daniel explains that the man he inherited the warehouse from set the trap and agrees to her plan. He starts breaking in from the back as the walkers become interested with Skidmark. One of the walkers sets off the gun, which shatters the glass and allows the walkers to break free. Daniel, Charlie, and Skidmark rush back into the car and slowly drive away.
Daniel then is radioed back by Strand, who begs him to bring the instruments back. He says he will, but they're bringing a herd of walkers with them. He gives him instructions about returning but Sarah says she broke their fence down to free the plane. Daniel stops the truck and tells Charlie to drive the truck back to Strand to give him the instruments while he deals with the walkers. She leaves as he leads them away.
Charlie returns to the warehouse and gives Strand the plane instruments. Suspicious, Strand radios Daniel to ask if he's putting him in danger. Daniel tells him he wants to get back at him for lying to him about Ofelia, confusing Charlie and the others. Strand explains how he lied about Ofelia's whereabouts and prevented him from saying goodbye before she died. Charlie says that despite their past, they need to save Daniel.
On the road, Daniel continues to lead the herd away as Sarah and Wendell arrive in Al's truck and release the machine gun lever but it doesn't shoot, so he hides underneath. Charlie and Strand then arrive in a truck with the plane in the back. Strand leads the walkers towards him, turns on the propellers, and watches as the walkers kill themselves until the plane engines stop. Strand confronts Daniel, who tells him he won't shoot him after all.
At the warehouse, Charlie asks Daniel what he would have said to Ofelia and he says, "Every day brings a chance to start over." He admits she could use that advice and then reveals he has to leave to take care of something. Charlie asks if she can come along but he says her friends need her more. He hands her Skidmark and says they can have everything in his warehouse except for a cigar, which is for when things get better.
Charlie, Strand, and Sarah work to relay instructions to the group via radio on rebuilding the crashed plane by examining Daniel's wrecked plane. However, due to the threat of a second power plant meltdown, Morgan and the others are forced to give up the truck stop's generator, leaving them without the ability to communicate with the others.
Charlie and the others are left with a plane with working propellers but no working engine while Morgan and the others have working engines but no propellers. As Sarah and Strand argue, Charlie looks at an old advertisement for Jim Brauer's brewery and asks Sarah if she and Wendell had gotten everything from the brewery. After Sarah states they took all of the bottles, Charlie draws their attention to something on the advertisement.
Later, Strand contacts the others to reveal that he and Charlie are coming with the propellers using Jim's beer-themed hot air balloon while Sarah and Wendell clear a runway for their return. However, the balloon runs out of fuel and crashes in a field in the radioactive zone caused by the power plant meltdown. Morgan warns the two against killing any walkers as they could become contaminated themselves. As Charlie and Strand assess their situation, a herd appears with at least two radioactive walkers, worrying them due to Morgan's warning.
Charlie and Strand stave off walkers at the crash site. She uses the balloon as a walker barricade as Strand finally frees the propeller. Strand then tells her they'll have to wait until help arrives. A while later, Strand reveals to Charlie he could have been on the first plane and promises he won't hesitate again. Suddenly, Morgan pulls up in a truck wearing a hazmat suit. He kills the walkers and reunites with them.
Charlie then listens as Morgan radios Grace to convince her to come with them to no avail. However, Morgan tells Charlie and Strand to get the truck and he'll meet them at the truck stop later.
At night, Charlie and Strand arrive at the truck stop and update Luciana on the situation. They then finish repairing the plane with the propellers. A while later, Annie and the kids arrive. Dylan asks Charlie if The Little Prince was her book and she smiles at this, but gets worried when Annie says Alicia's still out there in the woods alone.
In a flashback, Charlie and the group takes turns on the radio trying to reach out to strangers who might need help, to no avail. In the present, she and the group wait on the airfield for the rest to arrive.
Charlie then witness the nuclear plant explosion in awe, making her and the group proceed to get the plane ready to leave. After a while, Morgan radios Luciana to tell everyone to get ready to fly but she says John and Dwight aren't here yet, so Morgan asks them to help him fight the walkers. Charlie and the group then start walking backwards to the plane as the walkers close in. June tells Morgan she made John a promise and they have to get on the plane.
Charlie and the group makes a run for the plane as John and Dwight drive their way past the walkers in Sherry's van. Everyone makes it on the plane safely as a wall of smoke from the reactor fills the runway. Strand and Al steer through it and make it into the open air. She then watches happily as John proposes to June and she accepts. That night, the plane roars toward the dark runway as Wendell fixes the lights at the last second, allowing the plane to finally land.
Charlie reunites with Daniel and happily hugs him. Suddenly, a woman contacts Morgan on the radio, asking if that was his plane flying overhead. She's seen his boxes and wants his help. The communication cuts out as Logan interrupts the signal and says they need to chat. He pulls up in an old truck as everyone focuses their guns on him.
Logan tells Charlie and the group the gasoline is going bad and that Clayton wrote down an oil rig location. He says if they hand over his journal he'll help them find it. They're skeptical, but he makes the case they won't be able to help anyone without it and suggests they should find it first before his former crew.
Sometime later, Charlie and the group formed a convoy to travel throughout Texas to help others and invite them to join their community, while establishing additional outposts to recruit the survivors reaching out to them over the radio.
In an interview by Althea, Charlie explains that their mission of helping others has made them see themselves as good persons and has made things get better each day.
At night, Charlie and the rest of the group reunite in their camp to dine together. Al then asks the group what each want, with Charlie wanting to do right by the group who took a chance on her despite her previous actions. The tape concludes with everyone pleading with future survivors to help others.
Charlie leaves the group tired of the constant moving. At night, she hides in a car near a synagogue and watches as a Rabbi starts killing walkers. When he is attacked by one, Charlie opens the car door and knocks it to the ground, allowing him to kill it. He introduces himself as Jacob Kessner and welcomes her to his temple, saying God must have led her here.
The next day, Charlie reveals to Jacob she got separated from her group and he vows to help her reunite with them. Jacob then notices the bulb in his chandelier dimming and begins to panic, telling Charlie he has to leave to find batteries. Charlie says she knows where he can find some. She radios June to tell her she ran away because she was tired of the constant moving. She reveals where she is and asks her to bring car batteries.
A while later, John and June arrive with the battery and Jacob thanks them for keeping the eternal flame lit. Charlie asks them to help Jacob repair his fence and they agree. Outside, June tells Charlie the temple isn't the right place to settle down because it's too small and too far from a water source.
Charlie then suggests to Jacob the group could live there with him, but he politely turns her down as June and John tell her it's time to go. Suddenly, Sarah radios them about Logan's crew and June says they're on their way. They head outside to find all the walkers from the locked-up building surrounding them. Jacob takes them to the roof and explains he and his congregants were holed up in the temple at the onset of the apocalypse. He explains that he left to gather supplies and when he came back, everyone was dead.
John and June climb down and use a ladder to create a bridge in between cars to avoid the walkers. As they make their final ladder bridge the gate gives way and they get trapped on top of a car. June tells Charlie there's only one way out of this but Charlie refuses to give the place up. She reminds Jacob that he told her God led her there but he reveals he doesn't believe in God anymore and he began losing faith when the world turned, but had to pretend to keep his people alive. "I'm alive because I didn't believe in God," Jacob says, claiming he kept tradition because it's all he had left. Charlie finally relents and Jacob uses a horn to lure the walkers into the temple, where they extinguish the light, as they escape out the back.
Charlie and the group then drive to Dwight and Sarah's location in Al's SWAT truck and save them from having to confront Logan's crew. Later, Charlie apologizes for running away but June says the perfect place is still out there. Jacob says that's called faith and that he'll start looking around for what he wants.
Charlie and the rest of the caravan keep traveling in search of a permanent home. At night, Charlie is teached by Grace and Daniel how to play guitar. Suddenly, Charlie calls out for June to run over and help Grace, who has passed out. Later on, Morgan decides the group should leave in the morning.
The next day, the convoy stops their truck because they realize its too heavy to make it across a bridge. The wires start to snap so Morgan instructs everyone to cross the bridge without the cars. Suddenly, Virginia drives up and offers to help, explaining she's been following them and can't believe they used extra resources to help Grace. However, no one listens to Virgina and she orders her people to shoot their guns in the air so a nearby herd finds them. She reminds them to give her a holler and drives away.
Charlie and everyone works hastily to move the resources across the bridge while Morgan, Strand, and Al handle the walkers. When more arrive, Morgan is forced to move everyone across. Tom trips while recording as the truck falls through the bridge. He laughs at his good fortune until the bridge under him collapses too. Later, Charlie and the others rest on the side of the road before Morgan tells the group they should continue and Janis says it's what Tom would have wanted. They ditch their trucks and make the journey on foot.
Sometime later, the group finds a billboard for the Gulch. Later on, they arrive at the gulch but see that it is completely overrun with walkers. The group debates their next move. Charlie and the others then hear as Morgan radios Virginia for help.
Charlie and the rest of the caravan survivors rest along the outskirts of Humbug's Gulch as Morgan contacts with Virginia for help. After the theme park is cleared of walkers, Charlie and Jacob discover a church in the town. She later attends John and June's wedding in the chapel.
That night, Charlie and the caravan survivors are split up by Virginia into different groups as they are taken for re-settlement among her communities. Daniel assures Charlie everything will be fine as she is taken away.

Nick cared for Charlie, having tried to help her, even after she was discovered to be a spy for the Vultures. After the Vultures' attack, that caused the death of almost everyone in the Stadium and Madison. Nick kills Ennis as revenge, which Charlie witnessed, causing her to shoot Nick, being Ennis was one of her guardians. It is later shown that Charlie feels tremendously guilty about it, almost causing her to commit suicide.
Charlie and Alicia's relationship is complicated since Charlie killed Alicia's brother, Nicholas Clark, and was a part in the destruction of the stadium. In "Close Your Eyes", after learning about her tragic past, Alicia realizes that Charlie is just a scared kid, and "accepts" her existence, keeping her mother's legacy by helping her through their journey back to the group.
After realizing that everyone else disappeared, Alicia, tired of losing the people she cares about, decides to not look for them with the caution she usually would, afraid that she will find them dead our worse. Instead she decides to take Charlie to a beach, something the young girl has always wanted to do, even though Charlie wants to keep looking for the others. They end up at the small "beach" of a lake, finding John and Victor.
When suffering from the poison inflected by Martha Charlie tell's Alicia "At least I got to see a beach...", Alicia responding "Yeah, you did...".
In "... I Lose Myself", sometimes when they're on screen, Alicia can be seen taking care of sick Charlie, petting her head and back, showing that she cares for her.
Prior to Charlie killing Nick, Luciana wanted to help Charlie. Like Nick, she searched for books to give to Charlie, and still wanted to help her after she turned out to be the Vultures' spy, giving her "The Little Prince" book.
But, after Nick's death, Luciana resents Charlie, slowly raising a gun at her when she finds her in the middle of the fight between the Vultures and Alicia, Luciana and Strand.
In "People Like Us", Luciana finds Charlie and chases her off, screaming "Haven't you done enough?!", but as she gets back in the house, she finds "The Little Prince" book that she had given to Charlie, who had returned it to her. Seeing that, Luciana goes out into the storm looking for Charlie.
