- "Look, I don't know if I was thinking about my dad, or everything that happened with Briga, or, um... maybe both. But it made me realize something I've been thinking about for a really long time. (...) I want us to have a family. (...) Because I didn't even know if that's what I wanted. (...) Look, this life that we're living, it's good for us. And I just didn't see any room for a family. And looking at the Larsons, I thought, you know, the... the only way to do this was under Strand."

Dwight ambushes John Dorie and June near a strange walker roadblock. He later attacks them again in Humbug's Gulch during a dust storm, shooting out the tires of their van and getting the drop on John, demanding to know where "she" is. June knocks Dwight out and as a herd approaches, drags him into the club where they note his severe facial burn. John finds numerous notes from Sherry and tells June that whoever Dwight is searching for, it's been for some time. John is left pleased that they've found someone who actually needs their help.
Dwight then wakes up and yells for John to put down Sherry's notes. John tells him they just want to help him, but he insists no one can help him. John asks about the walker blockades but doesn't get an answer. Later, John and June barricade the doors with furniture and decide to head to the roof and get out of the town on foot. Dwight offers them his car but they insist he will come with them. He finally reveals his name and tells them about his mission to find his wife. They shake hands as John introduces himself and June. Dwight laughs at their names and John finally unties him.
The walkers break into the bar as they escape out the second-floor window. However, Dwight jumps from the roof, forcing them to follow him. He reveals to John that he calls the dead "walkers" and they make an effort to get away. They start making their way to the car but Dwight goes the other way and makes a break for their van, frantically searching through the glove box.
Dwight scans at a car registration with Sherry's forever symbol on it and a message to go "West on 30". He radios John and June to explain how Sherry has been leaving him messages for him in her travels and how he thought he'd find the next one in the car, but it wasn't there. "I've been looking for Sherry for, I don't know, at least a year," he says. Dwight begs to know where they found the car and June ultimately tells him they found the van without anyone alive in it but offers hope that Sherry could be alive.
Dwight explains that he doesn't deserve to find Sherry. "I'm never going to find her", he bemoans as he cocks his gun. He tells them that he has done terrible things that they can't even imagine, showing remorse for that and for trying to kill them just because he thought they'd hurt his wife. June tries talking him out of killing himself, saying Sherry is still out there and that he can't do this to her. Dwight lays down his gun and sobs, telling them he can't get back to them. John says to leave that up to them. They shoot at most of the walkers, leaving him a path to finally escape. As John runs out of bullets, Dwight kills one of the remaining walkers with his axe, but is pinned to the ground by its corpse. On the ground, John tells him to raise his axe, and John shoots it, causing the bullets to split and kill the last two walkers at once.
That night, Dwight carves a message into a wall reading "Still Looking". John approaches him and explains that the VIN from the car doesn't match the registration, meaning Sherry could still be out there and possibly left a note for Dwight in the car the registration actually belonged to.
Suddenly, Morgan, Alicia, and Luciana arrive at the town. Dwight walks up and calls out to Morgan. They are shocked to see each other and Morgan explains to the group that they come from the same place. Dwight explains his mission and tries apologizing for what happened with the Saviors, but Morgan assures him they can talk later. “We’re trying to start over,” he explains. Alicia asks Dwight about the walker barricades, so Dwight takes them to one.
At a roadblock, Dwight and the group are about to take it down when Max radios Alicia and says they're headed to the truck stop. On the way, they find a van stalled on the road. Inside, they find a bloody Dylan crying in the backseat. Alicia tries calming him and asks where Max and Annie are, but he won't answer.
Dwight and the group arrive at the truck stop with several parts of their plane. He then listens as Morgan makes a plea to the kids for them to stay together and to help them re-assemble the plane so they can leave the area together. "We can because we've done the impossible before," he says. Luciana reveals they will fly across the mountains together. Dylan steps up and agrees.
A while later, Dwight and John get ready to go out and keep searching for Sherry. He then listens as John tells June they will be back soon and kisses her. June also tells Dwight that he keep John out of trouble.
On the road, Dwight is getting frustrated with the search for Sherry. John is optimistic having found June. He asks how they got split up. "We got split up before we got split up," Dwight says. John shows Dwight the Scrabble pieces which June used to tell him she loved him. Dwight tells John he hopes the apocalypse never ruins his optimism, but John says the apocalypse actually made him better.
Dwight and John then search in a bar where a man is dead. Dwight explains that Sherry gave up her ring and everything to save him. "The only reason I'm still alive is because of her," he says. Dwight explains that the person that sent him away empathized with him loving his wife enough not to kill him. He says he needs some of John's luck. Suddenly, John finds a restaurant receipt with the word "honey" on it. John grabs a pencil and traces the paper, revealing a message from Sherry. "I've been looking on the wrong road this whole time," Dwight says in awe.
After arriving at a large house, Dwight finds the car identified on the registration he found from Sherry. He scouts the house while John stays behind and searches the car for a note from Sherry. Dwight then exits the house excitedly telling John he found supplies inside so Sherry must have been there and claims he's optimistic. He asks John if he found something in the car and John lies, saying he didn't. Dwight says it doesn't matter since he feels he's getting closer to finding Sherry, while also thanking him for giving him hope.
Dwight and John are searching on the road when June contacts John on the radio and warns the reactor will soon meltdown and he needs to rush. Dwight however insists on staying behind on his own to continue looking for Sherry, still unknownst to the letter she left behind. John decides to keep lying and goes with him.
A while later, John's unable to hot-wire a car as he and Dwight continue their search. John finally decides to tell Dwight about the letter he found. Dwight starts reading Sherry's letter and gets out of the truck as John apologizes.
At night, Dwight admits to John he understands why he lied to him and says he doesn't want to give up despite Sherry's request. Dwight then promises to return him the favor for helping him and promises to get him back to June.
Dwight and John desperately search for a car in an abandoned parking space. John then manages to hot ire a car and they leave. A while later, the car stalls out which Dwight suggests is due to the gas going bad. He then listens as June radios John and he confesses his love for her, telling her she's his reason to live and he wants her to have a reason to live, too.
Dwight is then left confused as John spots another message from Sherry on a tree and realizes that Sherry might've left Dwight more than her messages and asks him how far he thinks Sherry's car is.
Sometime later, Dwight and John drive their way past the walkers in Sherry's van as the group makes a run for the plane. 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. He 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.
Dwight is introduced by Alicia to Daniel, who jokingly says he needs a haircut. 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 Dwight 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, Dwight 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, Dwight explains that being with the group is having a second chance for him to make it right for his past actions by helping people and confesses he still hopes to find Sherry. He is also revealed to be the lookout for the caravan alongside Daniel, whom he has formed a close bond and spends time playing chess. Daniel then tells Dwight he wants to cut his hair, claiming it will make him look more presentable.
At night, Dwight and the rest of the group reunite in their camp to dine together. Al then asks the group what each want, with Dwight wanting to end each day making someone else's better. The tape concludes with everyone pleading with future survivors to help others.
Dwight, Morgan, and Grace go on a mission to find a man named Charles, who has been bitten, inside a mall and to put him down. At the entrance, Dwight cuts down a walker with his ax and leads Grace and Morgan inside. In an office, Grace and Morgan find an iPod. There is a note from Charles promising his favorite songs. They find a chair where he tied himself up until he turned and a herd of walkers on the ground level. Suddenly, Grace passes out and Morgan tells Dwight to find a first aid kit.
As Dwight gets the aid kit, he receives an updated from Daniel regarding Logan's crew. He enters and informs Morgan about it. Dwight is then instructed to return to the caravan to bring trucks so they can load up the supplies. Outside the mall, Dwight gives Morgan a package of water bottles to bring into the mall before he heads out. He reminds Morgan what it's like to be on the other side of taking people's stuff and asks how he thinks this will end for them. Morgan hopes Logan will recognize the good they're doing, but Dwight knows this morality won't be enough. Dwight ultimately radios to Daniel to tell him he is heading south.
On the road, Dwight gets held up at gunpoint while taking a leak. Rollie confirms he works with Logan before knocking him out. After a while, Dwight wakes up in the back of a truck at night. Rollie threatens him but Dwight reveals he knows how this works. He pistol whips him but Dwight recovers and tells the man he won't tell him where the oil fields are, reminding him he's been through much worse.
Dwight is visited by Rollie after several minutes but now with the letters from Sherry. Rollie believes those will get Dwight to talk and starts lighting one on fire. As Dwight lunges at him, Rollie pulls his gun at his face. Suddenly, a walker approaches and Dwight manages to throw him to the ground, take his gun, and knock him out. When Rollie wakes up, Dwight walks him to a clearing and tells him he was given a second chance and he's paying it forward by giving him one as well. He unties him and tells him to make a choice.
The next day, Dwight arrives with the rest of the group. He updates them on his run-in and suggests they should be more careful. Tess then mentions they could settle in at a ranch they passed on the road. They agree and the group begins loading the mall supplies into their trucks.
Dwight also has his hair and beard cut by Daniel. He then sees himself in the mirror and smiles happily at his new look, reminding himself of the man he used to be before he took the wrong path.
Dwight and the convoy set up camp in a field to rest for the night. The next day, he notices Charlie's missing and informs the group. Dwight then stays as lookout alongside Sarah as John and June go look for Charlie. They share a beer and discuss how they used to survive before the caravan. Suddenly, Dwight spots Logan's crew on the road and Sarah radios June to warn her about it.
They drive away from the camp as Rollie and the rest of the crew start chasing them. After a while, their truck runs out of gas as Logan's crew catch up. Before they can battle, the rest of the group arrives in Al's SWAT truck and Logan's crew decide to leave. Later, Dwight introduces himself to Jacob and talks with John about Logan's crew.
Dwight and Sarah ambush Rollie on the road using a fridge as a trap. As Sarah jumps out with a gun, Dwight points a gun at the people in the truck and says that they can use the truck to get into the oil field, claiming it was a good thing that he let Rollie live. Sarah fires her gun close to Rollie's ear to signal that she's not messing around. She says she can't abide with the fact that she killed Clayton, but she can live knowing she killed Rollie unless he helps.
After a while, Dwight and Sarah arrive to Tank Town and get out with their guns drawn at Logan. John shoots the walker carousel from afar and radios Logan that he better not try anything. Logan calls John's bluff and says he knows they don't have the guts to kill him. He offers to let the kids go if Dwight and Sarah agree to work for him. Sarah asks for a car and he obliges, so she instructs Annie and the kids to return to the caravan.
At night, some walkers manage to fall off the cliff and crawl. As the fire and walker herd grows larger, Dwight seeks shelter inside one of the trucks with Luciana and Wendell. They then hear as the woman on the radio is told she has to kill herself but is rescued on time by Wes. Later, the rest of the group arrives to help kill the remaining walkers and control the fire.
The next morning, Dwight and the rest of the group reunite with Logan until Doris and the others hold them up at gunpoint. He tells everyone to put their guns down and explains how he wants to continue Clayton's message after all. Suddenly, Logan and his crew are viciously shot and killed from afar by Virginia and her group.
Dwight then listens as Virginia reveals she's been watching them and suggests they could all help each other. She can offer them things they want like helping Dwight find Sherry in exchange for keeping the oil fields running. They refuse so she orders her people to prepare to kill them. Luciana offers to stay to help them make gas if she lets the rest go and Virginia agrees. Dwight and the group are then forced to abandon the place.
Dwight and the rest of the caravan keep traveling in search of a permanent home. At night, the group camps as Dwight kills a walker from one of the original western towns and John suggests that could be the settlement they've been searching for. 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. She turns to Dwight and tells him that one of her people broke bread with Sherry a couple of months ago and that he should trust her since he didn't reveal Sherry's name in their tape. Dwight points his gun at her but Morgan talks him down.
Virginia then 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. Dwight 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, Dwight 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. When they are out of options, Morgan decides to call Virginia but Dwight decides to leave the group and travel on his own.
Dwight runs through a field before collapsing. He hallucinates Sherry's voice on the radio and chucks it into the dirt from frustration. He makes it back to the convoy's abandoned cars before hearing a group of horses ride up to him. He stands up to shoot and discovers the horses without riders. "You just saved my life," he tells them.
A while later, Dwight arrives back to the Gulch with the horses and explains if they're alive then there must be water nearby. The group argues over whether to stay or not and eventually decide to stay, where they'll deal with the walkers and Virginia. Dwight and a group break open the fence and use the horses to lead the massive herd to ambush Virginia and take their supplies while the rest moves into the gulch.
On the road, Dwight tells June about his Sherry hallucination and says if he's meant to see her again it'll come naturally. He then gets surrounded by walkers and is forced to jump off his horse as the walkers devour it. Dwight runs off but Morgan follows him and eventually catches up. The rest of the group leads the herd into the river while Dwight and Morgan hide in the bushes. The group then returns to the Gulch, where Al shows them the bodies of the people Virginia killed. She insists that they will die fighting Virginia, but Alicia wants to fight back. Morgan just wants to make sure everybody survives and reminds them despite their failures they still made a difference in the world, and they should keep living their lives.
Later, Dwight attends John and June's wedding in the chapel. As they exchange vows, Dwight offers up his and Sherry's rings for them to use. Suddenly, Virginia and her pioneers arrive in a SWAT truck-leading caravan to take the group into different settlements.
That night, the group gets separated and driven away. Dwight is placed with the other adults on a truck and taken away.
Dwight and Al scout an abandoned building at Virginia's orders. Equipped with cameras, they record and investigate the remains of the building, as well as put down all walkers and count sleeping bags, assigned to find out what happened. When Al is attacked by an embalmed walker, Dwight narrowly saves her and the two drink beer outside. Hearing a woman's voice on Al's radio, Dwight takes it and questions who it is. He is told it is the "beer lady", who Al said she'd met before. After realizing she has been tracking her, Dwight insists they break protocol to make contact with the woman.
The two enter a nearby high rise office building, planning to make it to the roof. At the staircase, they find a cage of rats, and soon after are held at gunpoint by Nora, who brings them into a small community on a lower floor of the building. Dwight and Al observe several ill people, and as Dwight insists to Al that they stop and help, Al states that they are infected with the bubonic plague, and that they do not have the antibiotics to assist. The two move on to a floor further up, stopping to take shelter in a bathroom where Dwight realizes he is infected with the plague, possibly from being bitten days before. Al tries to convince Dwight to leave and find a pharmacy, yet he denies. Nora catches up, helping them clear a room of walkers. As they make it to the last door, Dwight, believing that Al would be leaving after making contact with the "beer lady", says his goodbyes.
While on his way down, Dwight is radioed by Al, being told that she is coming back down with antibiotics left by the woman's group. The two help hand out medicine to the ill. By morning, Dwight and Al make it back to the bottom of the tower. When a woman's voice speaks over Al's radio, Dwight quickly takes it, asking into the radio, "Honey, is that you?". After a brief hesitation, "Dwight?" is said on the other end.
Dwight rushes out of the building frantically, searching nearby alleyways and seeing a woman at the end. He runs over to who is revealed to be an emotional Sherry, who he embraces, with Al and Nora watching happily.
In a secluded building, Dwight prepares dinner for himself and Sherry. Seeing her reading her old notes to him, he says there was a connection between them despite how far apart they were. The two are interrupted when Hill radios in, telling Dwight to return with Al and the tapes. Dwight makes an excuse to check off-map areas, saying it would be worth their while. Dwight insists him and Sherry can leave, though she argues Virginia can find find them, and says she can't run away, before leaving the room to get a fork. Dwight, after hearing a noise in another room, takes his hatchet and investigates. When he checks behind a window's curtains, he is alarmed to see a masked man on the other side. Panicked, he rushes out of the room to find Sherry, but runs into three more masked men, before having his head bagged and being kidnapped.
Dwight is brought into the middle of a skatepark. When the bag is removed from his head, he looks around the seemingly empty park, before turning and attacking his captor. Managing to undo his binds and aim his own gun at the man, he demands to know where Sherry is, but turns to see he is surrounded by several masked people with guns. Sherry steps down to Dwight, assuring him it is okay. He questions why Sherry did not tell him about the group, to which she argues she didn't think he wanted to be a part of it. Sherry explains that the group is compiled of people who were rejected as members of Virginia's communities, or were hurt by them in some way. Ozzie demands to know from Dwight where Virginia is now, bringing up that Al is in their custody and threatening to kill her. They are interrupted by another member, who steps down into the park with them. He unmasks, revealing himself to be Rollie, whom Dwight quickly recognizes. Rollie explains to Sherry that Dwight saved his life twice.
Dwight is present when the rebels plan to blow up the Pioneer's MRAP. Their plan is stopped by Al, who says the vehicle is designed to withstand explosions, suggesting they steal it to use it against Virginia. Dwight, along with Al, Sherry, and other members of the rebels, ambush the MRAP on horses as it passes by. Riding up to the side of the vehicle after the group knocks out its communications, Dwight climbs onto the side of the van, nearly losing grip but making it onto the roof. He slips inside and holds the driver at gunpoint. When his gun is knocked out of his hand, along with his mask off his face, Dwight has a brief skirmish with the driver, kicking him out of the vehicle and slowing down the MRAP. Exiting the vehicle to meet back up with the rebels, Dwight states that the man saw his face. Dwight and Al are shocked to see Morgan ride up from behind on horseback, with the driver lassoed behind him.
When the group returns to the skatepark, Morgan, Dwight, and Al share what had happened since they were last together. The group later comes together for dinner. Dwight approaches the rebels' dog, who aggressively barks back at him.
In the morning, Dwight prepares to interrogate Reg. Entering the room he was kept in, Dwight turns off the looped music and removes the bag from his head. He demands to know where Virginia is, though continues to receive no answer. Dwight unmasks to look the man in the face, and is insulted on his burn, punching the man in retaliation. Growing progressively angrier, Dwight spills guts and blood on the man, and brings in the dog to threaten him with. The man continues to reject giving them any information. Dwight siccs the dog on Reg, but he is narrowly saved by Morgan, who flips his chair over and knocks him out. Morgan questions what Dwight is doing.
Outside, Dwight and Morgan argue over right and wrong. Dwight states that doing the right thing was what got them in their current situation, and argues that Morgan would do the same if Grace requested. Dwight returns to the group, who plan to lure Virginia and the Pioneers into a trap and kill them with the MRAP's turrets. Dwight radios Hill, telling him they found a new community of people and giving him the supposed location. Preparing to leave, Dwight is held at gunpoint by Ozzie at Sherry's request, telling him that he can't come, as she doesn't want him to become the person he once was. Forcing Dwight, Morgan, and Al into the same room Reg is being kept in, they are left there while the group leaves to the ambush location. Dwight admits to Morgan that he was wrong, and they should have waited for the right moment to attack. Dwight then starts cutting his binds.
Later that night, shortly before the scheduled attack, Dwight catches up to the rebels. He enters the MRAP, telling Sherry not to go through with the ambush, as it will ultimately cause more retaliation from the Pioneers. When Hill and the Pioneers arrive, Sherry emotionally backs down. Hill tells Dwight over the radio that they better have an explanation, and the Pioneers depart. After they leave, Sherry angrily hits Dwight, telling him, "you had to make it hard".
When the group returns to camp, Dwight enters Sherry's room, sitting beside her. He questions why Sherry is determined to take down Virginia, and then questions if it is because of Negan. Sherry tells Dwight that she could have done something to stop Negan, but chose not to, making her feel the need to take down Virginia for redemption. Sherry argues to Dwight that this was the person she is now, and demands Dwight to leave. Dwight walks out of her room. Walking through the skatepark, he approaches the dog's cage. Briefly sharing a bonding moment with it, Dwight opens the cage to release the dog.
Dwight approaches Morgan and Al. They suggest Dwight comes with them, telling him about the community Morgan is trying to build. Dwight accepts. The three grab two walkers that resemble them in appearance and put some of their clothing on them, also severely damaging one's face to cover for Dwight's burn. They leave the walkers chained to a truck. In the morning, the three arrive at a semi truck on the side of the road, where Nora's group are holding up. Dwight and Al tell them about Morgan's place, offering them to come, to which they accept. Before departing, Dwight leaves an infinity symbol written in marker on the door.
Dwight brings Alicia and Charlie to Morgan's community. Morgan radios Dwight and Al and tells them to mobilize for battle against Virginia. He asks Dwight to request reinforcements from Sherry.
Dwight, Althea and Alicia greet Morgan and Virginia. Morgan explains that he agreed to let Virginia see Dakota in exchange for Daniel and Grace's freedom. Morgan brings Virginia outside and tells everyone that she would be executed in front of the three comminutes, but decided against it, as he declares that killing Virginia would make them no better than her, then retreats behind the dam with Virginia. Dwight meets up with Sherry, and asks her to join the community, but Sherry says she wouldn't find what she is looking for with his people. She leaves with her group in the SWAT truck. Dwight later sees June leaving the community after she kills Virginia.
Dwight is seen helping residents of Valley Town work in harmony to rebuild the community. An explosion goes off in Valley Town. Dwight and the others race over and discover that someone set off some dynamite. Sherry calls it an inside job. A small group of walkers get through the dam and everyone has to improvise with chairs, tools and paint cans to fight them off. Dwight gets pushed down with a walker on top of him. Strand walks up and shoots the walker off of Dwight.
Dwight is present at the meeting in Valley Town where Morgan reviews the maps stolen by Althea, Luciana, and Wes from the Holding, detailing the cult’s future attack plans on settlements. When Dwight asks if they have any gasoline left, Rachel chimes in that they do not, but the horses are all fed and rested up, ready to be used if needed. After the meeting, Dwight checks in on Althea. Althea says Teddy’s group wasn’t out to hurt Nora’s people, they wanted the CRM. She wants to find Isabella and warn her. Althea wants to go by herself. Dwight says if he doesn’t hear from her in a couple of days, he will come looking for her.
In Grace’s dream, Dwight is seen with a longer beard pushing a wheelbarrow full of vegetables with his young son, John, following behind him. He greets Morgan and Grace as his wife Sherry and their infant daughter Tina approach to greet the newcomer. Sherry introduces her family and Grace to their settlement before proceeding to the vegetable gardens to plant seeds with the family.
Dwight finds June and assures her that Morgan didn't mean what he said. June wonders if John would still be alive if she'd left Virginia when he asked her to. Sherry joins them and searches the cars for fuel. June suggests they look for Ranger Hill to find out more about the group behind the spray-painted messages. Someone shoots at them. June looks for the sniper while Dwight and Sherry kill walkers.
Dwight tries to keep up with Sherry, as she rides her horse down the road at a furious pace, and worries they are working the horses too hard. He asks Sherry why she's out here. Sherry ignores him and just keeps riding. Dwight and Sherry race down the road. Dwight later finds Sherry on the ground, the horse dying near her. Sherry shoots the horse dead and finally reveals she is looking for fuel so that she can drive back to Virginia and kill Negan. Dwight agrees to help her find fuel if she helps him find June. Dwight and Sherry ride together and find June's jacket hanging off a tree.
Dwight and Sherry search the RV and find a note from June that she's heading to the cabin. They guess that Hill will have a truck that Sherry can drive to Virginia. Dwight and Sherry reminisce about their relationship, then hear June thumping in the bait shop nearby. They rescue June and they kill Hill before he can kill J.D. and they help J.D. up. Dwight, Sherry, June and J.D. stand by John's grave and they listen as June reads John's letter out loud.
Sherry tells Dwight that she's been using Negan as an excuse for breaking up, when in fact she's just afraid that she won't be able to change back to who she used to be. Dwight says that she doesn't have to be the same person as before. They hug and agree to start over. June gives her wedding rings back to Dwight and thanks him for letting her and John borrow them. Dwight and Sherry get on their horse.
Dwight joins the rest of Morgan's group in traveling to the beached sub near Galveston, Texas in order to stop the Doomsday Cult's plans to launch the USS Pennsylvania's compliment of nuclear missile. Dwight remains outside with many of Morgan's friends and watches in horror as the cult manages to get a nuclear missile with ten warheads off before Morgan and Strand can stop them.
After hearing Morgan's transmission, Dwight and Sherry desperately search for shelter on horseback. Finally, they come across a house. Sherry thinks they should search the house for some beer and pretzels, this being the one thing they promised they would do once they found each other. If it is indeed the end, Sherry says, then this is how she wants to go out, to which Dwight agrees. They find the house empty, but Dwight manages to find some beer. As they sip in on the porch, Sherry wonders why they didn't do this sooner. She tearfully laments how they could have had a life together after miraculously finding each other, but she couldn't get over the past, and instead wasted time being angry and trying to fight the bad guys, who always win anyway. All it did, Sherry realizes, was cost her time with Dwight.
Dwight comforts her, telling her she has nothing to be sorry for and that they can still have a life together, even if it's just for a couple of minutes. The pair are suddenly confronted by a couple of survivors who'd been hiding in the house, as Dwight and Sherry hold them at gunpoint. Dwight tries to deescalate the situation, assuring the couple that they thought the house was empty, with Sherry advising them to evacuate to a safe place. The man, Kevin, says that they have a place, but that "they" took it. He explains that they have a storm cellar which they were planning on hiding in after they saw the missile, when some "jackasses" showed up and forced them out. The woman, Kim, doesn't know who they were, just that they were ranting about how "the end is the beginning." Kevin bitterly says that they put a gun to his daughter's face, who then makes her presence known as well. Once they lower their guns, Kim asks Dwight and Sherry to leave them alone. Dwight, instead, volunteers to get the cellar back for them. When Kim asks how, Dwight asks if they have any rope.
Dwight and Sherry tie the cellar door to Dwight's horse. Dwight then slaps the horse so that it would gallop away. A few seconds later, the doors are pulled off their hinges. Two cult members emerge, guns blazing, but both are shot by Dwight and Sherry. While one is killed, the other tries to run away, only to be shot in the leg by Dwight. Once confronted, the cult member begs to be finished off, but Dwight denies him his wish, opting to instead do for him what he tried to do for the family in the house. Sherry sarcastically tells the cult member to enjoy the view, before shooting him in the other leg. As they walk away, Sherry is surprised by Dwight's conduct, as she hasn't seen that side of him in a long time. Dwight supposes they were both right about making sure the bad guys don't win, and says that maybe they should have been doing that the whole time. As another warhead detaches above, the pair scurry inside the storm shelter.
