"I didn't run out to help you because I like you. Or because you're a good man, a good father. Or because you can grow one hell of a beard. It's because you're one of us. That's the right answer."
—Deanna's last words to Rick Grimes.[src]

Deanna Monroe (née unknown) is a main character and a survivor of the outbreak in AMC's The Walking Dead. She is Reg Monroe's wife and the mother of Aiden and Spencer. She is the former leader of the Alexandria Safe-Zone.

After the death of her husband, Deanna passes a portion of her leadership to Rick Grimes, and shortly before her death, full leadership.


Deanna Monroe is known to be an extremely intelligent woman. Several times throughout her appearance, she picks up on small subtleties that other survivors give off about themselves and on what they are thinking. An example of this is when she realized that Rick Grimes had been telling her that letting his group in might not have been a good decision.

Deanna claimed that she would have been a professional poker player if she ever lost her status as a congresswoman. Her political party, presumably, advocated for her because of her deep understanding of people, and she was re-elected as an Ohio congresswoman.

Deanna also shrewdly came up with a way to force integration of Rick's group into her community: with a house party in their honor. In doing this, she had each of her people situate themselves in knowing Rick's people (except for Daryl Dixon and Abraham Ford, who did not socialize at the party and the former of whom did not even show up), become comfortable in the company of the strangers who would soon receive jobs in the community, and teach people that even people outside of their community could be good people.

Deanna is capable of looking at a conflict from both sides. Although she herself claims to care for the safety of only her people, she is able to perceive how Rick's group would have seen them at first glance. She's also very optimistic, wise and ambitious.

Deanna is very committed to her community. She barely let her son's death affect her rule of the safe-zone, save for what exactly she spent her free time doing. However, Reg's death drove her into a depression that caused her to shirk her responsibilities to an extent, though she continued to lead the community as best as she could up until her death, with the help of Rick and Maggie Rhee. In her last moments she is shown to be bold and strong-willed.


Columbus, Ohio

Not much is known about Deanna's early life. In her adult life, she entered into a career of politics. She later married Reg Monroe, a professor of architecture, and had two sons, Spencer and Aiden. Deanna eventually became a Representative for the 15th District of Ohio. She also spent time in philanthropy circles, many times working with Pamela Milton, whose father was the former President of the United States.

In 2010, Deanna Monroe was running for re-election as Senator in the mid-terms. While she was expecting to win, she was also prepared to lose. In the event that she would lose, Deanna decided that she would retire from politics and become a professional poker player. Deanna prided herself at being able to read people. She attributed this to being a successful at politics and poker. However, as the mid-term elections grew closer, so did the spread of the Wildfire Virus - causing widespread panic.


Washington, D.C

In the early days of the global outbreak, Deanna Monroe and her family drove to Washington D.C. to gather information and resources on how to help provide for Ohio. As the outbreak occurred, Washington D.C. was overrun with the undead and looters. Martial law was enacted and only allowed politicians and select people to evacuate first. Deanna and her family tried driving from Washington D.C back to Ohio so that she could help her district manage the crisis. Before they could reach Ohio, however, the army stopped and directed them to the safe-zone built for evacuating politicians in a self-sustaining, suburban community within Alexandria, Virginia.

Alexandria, Virginia

Deanna and her family arrived at the community of Alexandria. Also with her was former politician and NGO worker, Aaron, and his partner, Eric Raleigh. The soldiers who directed them to the community were supposed to come back later, but they never returned due to Operation Cobalt. However, Deanna and the other survivors found supplies in the community and used them to stay alive. The houses were also built with its own cistern, eco-based sewage filtration, and solar panels. Alexandria was able to produce its own clean water, sewage, and electricity away from the collapsed grid. Deanna then saw Alexandria as the start of sustainability.

With the Woodlands Mall Construction Site nearby the community, Deanna and her family used the material sources from the construction site to fortify the community. At first, Deanna and her family only built one of the walls, but after a few weeks, more people came in; including Tobin, Bruce, and Francine. Together the newcomers helped to finish building the walls. Deanna's husband being a professor of architecture made her realize who people were before mattered in rebuilding the world, and thus assigned roles in the community based on previous occupations. Aaron and Eric, who once traversed West Africa to deliver supplies to those in need became the recruiters for Alexandria.

Aaron and Eric eventually recruited a man named Davidson, who led a small group. He and his people did not work well in Alexandria, so Deanna had to make the decision to exile him and his people. She knew in her conscience that it was as good as killing them, but she argued it was needed to be done. However, she could not exile certain people. Pete Anderson, the community's surgeon, was physically abusing his wife, Jessie, and their sons Ron and Sam. Deanna encouraged him to end it, but was not able to stop the abuse due to the desperation of the community needing a doctor.

Due to what happened with Davidson's people, Deanna had Aaron and Eric recruit lone survivors rather than large groups. As time went on, however, Deanna realized that most of her people had been behind the walls since the beginning and have not had a reason to go out and face the realities of the world that most survivors had faced. Admitting that they needed experienced people who could protect their community and teach them how to survive, Deanna allowed Aaron and Eric to recruit large groups once again. After this order, Aaron and Eric spotted a large group of survivors from Georgia led by a man named Rick Grimes.

Season 5


Deanna is first introduced as she interviews Rick Grimes over his experiences since the apocalypse. She goes on to interview Michonne Hawthorne, Glenn Rhee, Carol Peletier, Daryl Dixon, Rick's son Carl, and the rest of the survivors in Rick's group. She realizes Rick's group is good and they stick together and expresses she wants to be part of his family. By the first night she has given everyone a job but Rick, Michonne, Sasha Williams, and Daryl and stops by to see them all sleeping in one room. When her son Aiden and Glenn get into a confrontation by the town gates, she steps in and restores order while assigning Rick and Michonne jobs as police constables for Alexandria.


Rick first talks to her about defending the walls with patrols and arming a few select people inside the walls, something Deanna believes to be unnecessary. When asked about the shifts people take in the clock tower, Deanna reveals that the town has no official lookout, which surprises and angers Rick. Sasha vehemently volunteers to be the first lookout on patrol and asks to have as many shifts as possible. Deanna notices this and refuses to let Sasha have a job like this so early, understanding Sasha's desire to shoot someone alive. Deanna tells them that she will host a house party for all residents for Alexandria to celebrate the induction of Rick's group (especially his infant daughter Judith) into their community, and tells Rick that she will authorize the use of a lookout in the tower if his group attends. He accepts, and Deanna leaves to make preparations for their party. She is later seen introducing her husband, Reg Monroe, to Rick and Michonne. She being the leader of the community, much of her time is monopolized by requests from residents, and she is therefore left not to socialize with Rick and his group. The following day, Deanna personally oversees the departure of Sasha for a quick walk.


Deanna is first seen with Reg, seeing off their son Aiden who is heading out on the supply run. Later Tobin, the concurrent head of the construction crew, comes to the house to make her elect Abraham Ford as head of the construction crew to replace him after his valiant actions earlier that day in the face of oncoming walkers. After he has gone, she is concerned about electing another of Rick's people into a position of power but Maggie Rhee, who is her assistant now, reassures her it'll be okay. Father Gabriel Stokes then comes to the house to warn her that Rick's group are bad people.


Deanna is first seen playing back Aiden's run mix CD, depressed over the sudden death of her son. She later receives Carol's casserole and burns the note that was included. The next day she has a conversation with Rick regarding the domestically-abusive Pete Anderson, and she reveals that she only kept Pete in the Safe-Zone due to his medical experience. She is called over by her husband when Pete and Rick are brawling in the streets. She repeatedly tries to break up the situation until Rick points a gun at her and the other Safe-Zone residents. She stands listening to Rick's speech.


Deanna first appears in the episode the day after the fight when she is talking with Maggie about what happened between Rick and Pete. She later says that a meeting will be held in the community that evening. Maggie tries to convince her that Rick did not mean any harm from what he did, but Deanna refuses to believe that, and tells Maggie that everything will be settled in the meeting later that night.

At the meeting, Deanna notices that Rick is not in present, escalating her distrust of him and the group. Deanna reveals what Gabriel told her about Rick's group, which angers Maggie, who storms off. Deanna and the others then were shocked when Rick threw a dead walker in front of them and told Deanna that walkers got in because the gate was left open. Spencer notes that he asked Gabriel to secure the gate, and Deanna sends Spencer off to find Gabriel. Pete then appears with Michonne's katana. Reg tries to calm Pete down, only to be slashed across the throat. Deanna becomes hysterical, holding Reg and feeling helpless. Enraged, she says "Rick, do it". Rick, without hesitating, shoots Pete in the head.

Season 6

"First Time Again"

After Rick kills Pete, Gabriel arrives at the scene of the murder and finds Deanna, alone, sitting beside the pool of her husband's blood. She croaks, "You were wrong." She is later seen after Rick argues with Gabriel about burying Pete's corpse within Alexandria. Deanna arrives and agrees with Rick, telling them to bury "it" out in the woods, to "let the trees have him." Another day, after Rick explains the plan to the Alexandrians about moving the mega-herd out of a nearby quarry and away from the Safe-Zone, Deanna agrees with Rick's proposition.


Deanna and Maggie head outside the walls by the burned-down houses to begin preparing the land for farming. When people are heard screaming inside the Safe-Zone, Deanna calls out to Richards, a look-out, to find out what's going on before a Molotov cocktail strikes him, setting him aflame and bringing him down off the wall. Deanna and Maggie, who has drawn her gun, head over to investigate. When Maggie and Deanna try to get inside they find Spencer. Maggie says they need to go inside and help, but Deanna acknowledges that she cannot use a gun and would only be another person to protect, and so Maggie heads in by herself while Spencer stays outside to protect his mother. After the skirmish, Deanna finds Richards' charred, reanimated corpse. She watches Maggie put it out of its misery.


Deanna is first seen in the beginning of the episode, where she is shown climbing up a ladder onto the walls. She absorbs the aftermath of the Wolf attack, and seems distant. When Rick arrives, it is obvious that the sheer amount of walkers behind him shocks her. She is also present for Rick's impromptu meeting, and for Aaron's confession to the Alexandrians. She leaves the meeting in a daze, obviously still struggling to cope with everything. When Spencer steps up and stops the Alexandrians from taking surplus food items from the pantry, Deanna appears to be proud of his actions.

Later, at her home, Deanna is phased by Reg's wedding ring, but snaps out of it. She then proceeds to take out a map of Alexandria, which she marks up with her various plans for expansion. She marks spaces for farm plots, future areas of development, and various other things. This seems to indicate that Deanna hasn't given up hope quite yet. However, the next scene shows her finding Spencer drunk in the kitchen, with stolen alcohol and food. She berates him for his hypocritical actions, but he simply remarks that he only wanted to prevent the chaos what could result from the Alexandrians acting solely on their own behalf's. He then proceeds drunkenly to blame her for the deaths of her husband and son.

That night, she returns the stolen items, only to discover a reanimated Wolf. She drops the crate of food that she was carrying, and uses a broken bottle to stab it multiple times. Rick intervenes and stabs it in the head before anything else can occur and comments that Carol had shot a Wolf whose body she couldn't find, speculating that the Wolf had crawled under a nearby house where he'd eventually died and then reanimated. Covered in walker blood, Deanna states that she wants Alexandria to stay standing, and asks Rick if that's unrealistic. Rick acknowledges this by saying that it isn't unrealistic for Alexandria to remain standing. Deanna, with regained confidence, walks up to the gates. She watches the walkers at the gate, who are banging at the fence. She responds by banging on the fence herself, an obvious act of resistance. She leaves, and observes blood leaking through a part of the walls.

"Heads Up"

Deanna first appears where she thanks Rick for saving Spencer, where Rick says that she should be thanking Tara instead of him, but she says that she already did. Rick then tells her that he could have jumped off the wall, got into one of the cars at the quarry and let the walkers corner Spencer, which would have resulted in his death, which Deanna remarks that he didn't and asks him why he didn't do so.

When Rick tells her that the reason he didn't do so was because Spencer is her son, where she then tells him that he gave the wrong answer. Later, along with most of the residents of Alexandria, she witnesses in horror as one of the watchtower leans, falls and eventually destroys a part of the wall, letting the herd outside in to Alexandria.

"Start to Finish"

Deanna appears by helping Rick shoot at the herd that are now entering Alexandria through a part of the wall that was destroyed by the watchtower that had fallen. She and Rick runs from and fight the walkers that begin to come up on them. When a walker is about to attack Rick, Deanna pulls it away and struggles against it and later a second walker comes up on her, causing her to fall onto a sharp gear, injuring her thigh.

Rick is able to dispatch both of the walkers and helps Deanna up, although injured. She and Rick are later joined by Michonne, Carl, Ron and Gabriel, as they flee from the herd that are coming after them, however, they are later cornered by some of the herd ahead of the road, where she and Rick shoot at the walkers who are getting close. Eventually, Jessie shoots at the walkers coming for them and lets them in at her house to hide in.

She is then put on one of the couches upstairs, where Michonne tends to her injury. When Rick asks her afterwards if she is okay, Michonne finds a bite mark on her side.

Later on, now becoming weak from the bite mark she had received, she talks to Michonne about their current situation and about Alexandria. Michonne says that she believes in Alexandria and that they can get through on what they are currently in and her plan of expanding the community. She then asks Michonne if there's something that she wants for herself, whom replies by admitting that she doesn't know.

Deanna then makes her way to the room Judith is in and, after being confronted by Rick who almost kills her after assuming that she had turned, she says that she wants to see her one last time. She then admits that she tried to go to the room herself, but her weakened state made it hard for her to do so easily. Rick then gently carries and puts her on the bed nearby where she gives him farewell notes to both Spencer and Maggie. She then asks Rick to look after Spencer for her, as he would with his own people, stating that the people of Alexandria are now Rick's people.

When the herd manages to break through the makeshift defenses Rick and the others had made downstairs, Michonne comes to Deanna's side and offers to kill her, saying that they're leaving, before she turns, however, Deanna insists that she will kill herself when the time comes, referring to when she and the others leave and when the herd reaches her upstairs. After Rick and the others leave, blending into the herd, she is about to kill herself when she hears the herd moving around outside and decides to open the door and open fire at them, killing a few of the walkers coming after her, before letting out one last scream of defiance against the herd.

"No Way Out"

Although not seen on-screen, Spencer spotted the reanimated Deanna during the final battle with the herd. Despite the slaughter, she was somehow able to escape the town and into the nearby woods.

"The Next World"

For the weeks following the final battle with the herd, Spencer combed the nearby forest in search of his zombified mother, convinced that he had seen her during the battle. About two months after the survivors reclaim the safe-zone for themselves, Carl and Enid encounter Deanna in the woods. Carl, knowing that Spencer is out there and having deduced that he is searching for her, leads the walker to her living son. Spencer, with the help of Michonne, who had followed him into the woods that day, puts down his mother and buries her under a tree. Michonne etches a "D" into the tree above the grave before the two head back to town.

Season 7

"The Day Will Come When You Won't Be"

Deanna appears briefly in a flashback when Rick reflects on memories with all of his friends while panicking over the possibility that his other friends could be killed by the Saviors.

Season 11

"The Lucky Ones"

While visiting Alexandria, Pamela Milton looks at a picture of Deanna and Reg and reveals to Daryl that she had known Deanna, much to Daryl's surprise. Pamela explains that before the outbreak, she and Deanna had crossed paths quite a bit in philanthropy circles and although Pamela wasn't interested in politics at the time, Deanna was born to run things. Daryl tells Pamela that Deanna had brought the Survivors in and that they'd never met anyone like that before. Daryl admits that he admires Deanna greatly and that she had built something worth fighting for for them. Although Alexandria has fallen several times, they've always brought it right back.

As a breach in the weakened wall lets in a walker, Pamela asks Aaron about Deanna's death. Aaron explains that Deanna was bitten and he admits that she turned and they had to put Deanna down.

Maggie later tells Pamela that she leads the Hilltop the way that Deanna and Georgie had taught her to and the Hilltop is fair which is not how she sees the Commonwealth.


Killed By

When the herd gets into Alexandria, Deanna is bitten on her side. Later, Deanna is about to kill herself when she hears walkers outside the hallway, so she decides to open the door and kill some of them while letting out one last defiant yell, before eventually succumbing to the infection.

About two months after the herd's assault on Alexandria, a zombified Deanna is spotted wandering the woods outside of the town. After finding her, Michonne restrains her while Spencer unsheathes his knife and tearfully stabs her in the back of the head, putting her down.

Killed Victims

This list shows the victims Deanna has killed:


Reg Monroe

Reg is Deanna's husband, and it is shown that they love each other deeply. Reg respects Deanna's leadership, but had doubts about some of her decisions. After Reg's accidental murder under Pete's hands, she is shown to be devastated by his death. Deanna, in a fit of rage and grief, tells Rick to execute Pete, which Rick does without any hesitation.

Aiden Monroe

"Thank you. (...) For knocking him on his ass."
—Deanna to Glenn after the fight[src]

Deanna and Aiden have a basic mother and son relationship. Aiden is shown to respect his mother, but somehow Deanna sees through his recklessness. Aiden is known for being a bully by using his power inside the community run by his mother, and Deanna is aware of that. When the fight between Aiden and Glenn ensues, Deanna thanks Glenn for punching her son in the face, further proving that Deanna sees the problems with her own son. Deanna is saddened when she finds out her son died, but she moves on quickly.

Spencer Monroe

Deanna is shown to love Spencer as a son. She trusts him with various tasks such as keeping watch on the bell tower. When finding him alive after the wolves attacked, she ran up and hugged him, showing relief after realizing he was alive. He then proceeded to protect her while she stayed in the truck. After Deanna witnesses Spencer's speech to the Alexandrians to conserve the food, she smiles at her son, proud of his actions. Deanna later finds Spencer drunk with some food that was stolen from Olivia's food pantry. Deanna reprimands her son's actions, to which he in a drunken aggression calls out Deanna for giving everyone a false sense of security in Alexandria. Deanna walks away from this shocked, but she most likely doesn't hold it against Spencer mainly because he was intoxicated. During Deanna's last moments she asks Rick if he can give a message to Maggie and Spencer, with Deanna telling Rick to look after Spencer as if he was one of Rick's group, which Rick sorrowfully accepts.

After his mother's death, Spencer dedicates his time to combing through the woods in search of his reanimated mother, convinced that he had seen her during the battle. Finally, after about two months of searching, he finds her with the help of Carl. Michonne restrains Deanna and Spencer is able to put down his mother at last. He buries her in the woods before returning to Alexandria.

Although their relationship becomes strained in the end after the deaths of Aiden and Reg, Deanna makes clear her love for her son in her final moments and Spencer strives to do right by his mother even after her death.

Rick Grimes

"They don't need me, Rick. What they need is you."
—Deanna to Rick about protecting the people.[src]

Deanna and Rick appeared to trust and respect each other. When Deanna first interviewed Rick, she clearly views his leadership and survival tactics as a great asset to the Alexander-Safe Zone and personally believes that she can trust Rick. Upon settling in the safe-zone Deanna continues to be inspired by Rick's ability to have come so far in the apocalypse and even jokes aboard his shaved beard Rick in turn views Deanna as a strong and independent leader for the safe zone and reluctantly trusts her.

After she witnesses Rick breaking up a fight between Daryl and Nicholas, their relationship strengthens greatly as she then gives Rick the position of constable for Alexandria. Rick is thankful for her offer and accepts his given position. Later, however, Rick scolds Deanna for not managing her community correctly, saying that she has to fight or die. Their relationship is hinted to be severed.

However, in the episode "Conquer", while mourning Reg after he was murdered by Pete, she gives Rick the go-ahead to execute Pete. This repairs Deanna's relationship with Rick, firmly ending their conflict.

In the episode "First Time Again", Deanna begins to allow him to have some leadership over the other survivors, showing that she trust Rick's leadership and that their relationship is good.

In "Start to Finish" Deanna is injured by a walker saving Rick, Rick carries her to Jessie's house. Rick is saddened to discover that Deanna is bitten by a walker. Before her passing, Deanna says of how proud she is of Rick and what he has done for Alexandria and he assures her that Alexandria will still be standing in her memory. Before Rick leaves, Deanna gives him a note to Maggie and Spencer to which Deanna asks for Rick to take care of Spencer as if he was one of Ricks group to which Rick tearfully accepts. Rick is deeply saddened of Deanna's passing and he works to keep Alexandria alive and standing in her memory.

Maggie Rhee

Deanna and Maggie are both shown to get along. This is shown when Deanna employs Maggie to work with her. When Deanna, Maggie, and Reg are discussing what should happen to Rick, the two disagree with each other and become slightly more distant than previously shown. This may also be due to when Gabriel warned Deanna of Rick's group, including Maggie.

Pete Anderson

"Rick... do it."
—Deanna telling Rick to execute Pete after the latter kills Reg.[src]

Deanna disliked Pete due to his use of domestic abuse towards Jessie but didn't act upon it because of Pete's medical experience. The relationship however quickly turned to sheer hatred from Deanna, so much so that she told Rick to execute him after Reg's murder at his hands.

Her hatred still continues in "First Time Again", as is seen when Rick is arguing with Father Gabriel and Tobin about how they should only dig one grave instead of two and shouldn't bury Pete's body. Deanna arrives, says that Rick is right and that Pete should be buried out where the "trees can have him".

Michonne Hawthorne

Michonne seemed to trust Deanna very much. Michonne was fond of Alexandria, Deanna's community. When a massive herd invaded Alexandria, Deanna had been bitten leaving Michonne upset. Before she died, Deanna was giving Michonne hopeful advice for the life she wants to live. After spotting the reanimated Deanna in the woods, Michonne restrained her so that Spencer could put his mother down. Michonne then helped Spencer bury Deanna before she carved a "D" into the tree above the grave as a memorial to the woman.

Gabriel Stokes

Gabriel and Deanna first talk when Gabriel tells her that Rick and his people are indeed dangerous, she then thanks him and also tells him she has a lot too think about now. After the death of Reg, Deanna is in his puddle of blood, Gabriel then walks up, Deanna looks at him and tells him he was wrong. Then Gabriel nods knowing he was wrong about Rick and his group being dangerous.
