Nothing is known of the bridge's history before the outbreak.
As Aaron, Eugene Porter, Daryl Dixon, Michonne Hawthorne, Magna, and Yumiko Okumura make their way back to the Hilltop with Jesus' body, Dog draws their attention to a nearby herd that is following them. Unsure of what they are dealing with, Daryl leads the group to the covered bridge to find out.
As a small group of the herd begins to cross the bridge, Daryl shoots one in the leg with his crossbow, but it fails to cause a reaction, proving that it's just a walker. When Daryl shoots another one, it proves to be a Whisperer whose screams of pain cause the actual walkers to turn on and devour him. As the two remaining Whisperers attempt to retreat across the other end of the bridge, they are faced by Michonne who quickly kills one of them. The second, Lydia, draws a knife, but quickly surrenders instead of fighting while Magna and Yumiko put down the walkers. Lydia claims that she's the only one left and that they had killed everyone else, but Michonne doesn't believe her. With the rest of the herd fast approaching, Daryl decides to take Lydia with them as they don't have time to question her on the bridge.
