Season 8

"The Big Scary U"

José, along with Brooke, Potter, and many other workers confronts the Savior lieutenants, demanding power, water, and other amenities. He shouts that the young and old need water. When Negan starts whistling and makes his way toward the crowd, José and the others quickly take a knee.

"Dead or Alive Or"

José is among the workers from the Sanctuary sent to Eugene's outpost to help produce bullets for Negan's army.


José is producing bullets with the other workers when he listens to Eugene's speech about meeting the minimum quota for Simon. When a soot-covered Eugene returns after his brief absence, José and the other Saviors are ordered to complete the entire bullet order in anticipation of Negan's final assault on the militia.
