"Hey! Hey! Slow down! Slow down! Slow-- I'm begging you! No! Please!"
—The survivor to Rick Grimes, Michonne Hawthorne, and Carl Grimes as they drive past him in their vehicle.[src]

This unnamed hitchhiker is a survivor of the outbreak in AMC's The Walking Dead.

Pre-Apocalypse

Location Unknown

Nothing is known about this hitchhiker's life prior to or as the outbreak began. 

Post-Apocalypse

Season 3

"Clear"

This survivor is seen hitchhiking along the side of the highway, eventually spotting Rick Grimes, Michonne Hawthorne, and Carl Grimes in a car driving past him. He yells for their help, but is ignored and continues to try and run after Rick's car, but stops and falls on his knees, realizing they aren't stopping for him.

The car shortly stalls at a pile-up. Rick, Michonne, and Carl get out to release the car. They ignore the hitchhiker's cries for help, despite the fact that they are slowly getting louder. After releasing the car, the three get back into the car and drive away. The hitchhiker, having run towards the group after seeing them stop, falls to the ground again.

On the drive back to the West Georgia Correctional Facility - their base - Rick, Carl, and Michonne pass the pile-up and notice a corpse and streak of blood on the ground, ending at the hitchhiker's distinctive orange backpack. The car backs up, and Carl hops out to grab the backpack before they drive away.
