The Hunter's School is a location seen in Season 5 of AMC's The Walking Dead.


This was a school before the apocalypse.


During the onset of the apocalypse, it seems like this place was used as a safe-zone of sorts, however, it ultimately fell.

Season 5


Bob wakes and sees blurry faces and a fire. They are the remaining residents of Terminus. One of them is Martin, beaten up- but not dead as Tyreese claimed. "The good news is, you're not dead yet," Gareth says. They have Bob tied to a pole. Gareth says they didn't want to hurt them, before, but these are things they have to do. "You and your people took away our home, and in order to survive, we have to hunt." During a montage of the group celebrating and eating, Gareth gives a speech about how the Terminants didn't start out eating people or doing the things they've done. One shot shows Gabriel looking at a picture of the church lady, who was a church organist, with him while she was alive.

"We evolved. We had to. And now we've devolved into hunters," Gareth says. "I told you. I said it. Can't go back, Bob." He says he just hopes Bob understands it's not personal, that even though they put them in that situation they would have done this to anybody. Gareth says that at the end of the day no matter how much they hate all this ugly business, a man’s gotta eat. Bob is shown to be missing his left leg, amputated about at the knee. He begins panicking out of shock.

Gareth takes a bite of Bob's cooked leg right in front of him. "If it makes you feel any better, you taste much better than we thought you would," Gareth says. The Terminants feast on Bob's leg, now roasting on a spit.

"Four Walls and a Roof"

As Gareth continues to calmly speak to Bob, while walkers growl at them from inside the elementary school they are camping outside of, Bob becomes more and more visibly distressed. Gareth admits here that his group had been leaving the marks on the trees as a way to find their way to/from Terminus. Finally, Bob begins chuckling, then breaks into a laugh as Gareth tries to chastise him for not listening. The rest of the group come over, commenting that Bob has "lost it". Bob, however, gleefully pulls his shirt down, revealing a bite wound on his shoulder, and laughing as he explains that he has been bitten and is therefore "tainted meat". As the members of his group react in horror, Gareth angrily kicks Bob into unconsciousness, while explaining that they will be fine - because they "cooked him".

Later on as Sasha tends to Bob, Rick asks Gabriel if he recognized the place Bob described. He seems reluctant to answer, but admits that it sounds like Bob was being held at an elementary school, which is to the south (and within walking distance) of the church

Under the cover of night, Rick, Michonne, Sasha, Glenn, Maggie, Tara, and Abraham leave the church to go to the elementary school. As they disappear into the woods, the Terminants appear, arriving at the church from a different route, and break in. As they search the church, Gareth asks the group to come out, revealing that he knows that Rick had taken some of their members and most of their guns to the elementary school. 


At the school where the Terminus residents used to camp, walkers are amassing inside the doors as Father Gabriel inspects the scene. He finds photos, a Bible with Mary's name written on the inside cover (which falls open to Chronicles 8:10 through 11:21 when he picks it up) and finally, the remnants of Bob's leg in the barbecue pit. He angrily throws the pit over, crying. As he does so, the walkers free themselves and chase him to the church.

After the credits, Morgan finds his way out of the woods, standing where Gabriel had stood earlier in front of the school. He stops over a walker that is disabled on the ground, putting it quietly out of its misery, and moves on to the church.
