"Walk With Me"

Eileen walks around town with groceries and waves hello to Rowan, who is giving a tour to Michonne and Andrea. Later she crowds around the military vehicles that are brought into town by the Governor and his men.

"Say the Word"

Eileen is seen enjoying the barbecue, where she is sitting at a table in the streets with a girl who is getting her hair done. A man brings Eileen a drink. A short time later, Eileen is seen listening to the Governor's speech at the town barbecue. She is later seen standing in front of the bleachers, cheering at the gladiator fight between Merle Dixon and Martinez.

"Killer Within"

One morning in Woodbury, Eileen takes a stroll in the street with several other residents as Michonne walks alongside the wall, casually inspecting the perimeter and the guards.

"Made to Suffer"

After the first round of gunshots, Eileen heads out to the street to investigate and is encouraged by the Governor to return home and stay indoors. Later after the firefight, Eileen is seen at the arena standing on the bleachers, after Rick's group infiltrates Woodbury and demands the death for the Dixon brothers.

"The Suicide King"

Eileen is at the arena with other residents, cheering and demanding for the death of Daryl. The next morning, Eileen is one of the townspeople attempting to depart Woodbury, but is denied passage through the gates along with the other residents. Later, she is outside of the Governor's apartment as Andrea calms down the panicked residents.

Post-Prison Assault

It is likely she was among the Woodbury soldiers killed in the prison or among those massacred by the Governor out on the road as she was not seen with the remaining Woodburians arriving at the prison.[1]
