The Fall of the Governor - Part Two

"Doomsday Clock"

During the first assault on the prison, Dale can be heard yelling at Andrea to stop as the survivors scramble during the initial shooting. At one point, Lilly Caul sees Dale frantically crawling across the exercise area for cover. After the biters around the fence are killed or lured away, the Governor orders the militia to shoot to kill at the prison's residents. The survivors dive for cover from the barrage of bullets, some of the weaker ones covering their heads and staying on the ground, others crawling madly for safety, and some of the older ones trying to help the younger ones. Many of the survivors appear to be unnarmed which bothers Lilly. The prison survivors arm themselves and start shooting back at the army. Within moments, more members of the milita start to fall. The rising number of losses causes Woodbury to retreat.

After the initial attack, it appears many of the prison survivors have evacuated, Dale being one of them.

For the rest of the events of the Novel Series, Dale's whereabouts remain unknown, until his story picks back up in the Comic Series. For further details see:
