Season 8

"Do Not Send Us Astray"

Following her evacuation to the Hilltop with the other Kingdommers, Dana has taken up the role of the community doctor. While the militia prepares for the upcoming battle against the Saviors, she is busy gathering supplies at the infirmary when Siddiq arrives with blankets and offers to help. Dana gives Siddiq a hard time until he snaps and demands that she start cooperating with him instead of fighting. Taken back in admiration, she tells Siddiq that she approves of him and sends him to work.

That night, at around 4:00 am, Dana heads towards the medical trailer until she finds the door wide open with a pool of blood at the doorway. Before she can react, she is bitten on the neck and killed by a zombified Tobin. A short time later, a reanimated Dana is along the zombified residents and refugees to attack the people sleeping inside the Barrington House. During the attack, Dana is put down with a knife to the face by Daryl. The next morning, she is buried in the graveyard with the other casualties.


Killed By

After turning into a walker due to the Saviors' tainted weapons, Tobin attacks Dana, biting into the side of her neck.

As a zombified Dana advances on Daryl, he stabs her in the forehead, putting her down.

This list shows the victims Dana has killed:
