I saw someone survive a bite longer than anyone I had ever seen, and she had been exposed to radiation, so I thought if it worked for her, it could work for Hannah. I gave her radiotherapy with equipment that we scavenged from a hospital. It stopped the infection. But the amount of radiation that it took... just made things worse for her and I wanted to end her suffering.
―June explaining her experiments on a cure to the Wildfire Virus.[src]

June Dorie (née unknown) is a main character and a survivor of the outbreak in AMC's Fear the Walking Dead. At some point, she met John Dorie (whom nicknamed her "Laura") and fell in love with him before running away in fear of emotional attachment.

Later on, June became a resident of the Dell Diamond Baseball Stadium community until its fall, and later a member of the Vultures until the death of their leader Melvin. June then reunites with John and decides to become invested in relationships again.

She was a member of Morgan's group until the caravan was forcibly split up and resettled into Virginia's various settlements. June was later relocated to Lawton as a reward for John's work as a ranger where she served as a nurse in the town. After the deaths of her husband and Virginia, June left Valley Town to build her own hospital.

After joining PADRE, June began performing experiments on a potential cure to the active infection of the Wildfire Virus using radiation. Although successful in stopping the infection from the bites themselves, June's treatment was fatal to her test subjects, driving June to flee PADRE and go rogue until she was forced back into her work years later.

Overview[]

She is described as "a capable survivor we'll meet living on her own early on in the season. She'll have her guard up as she crosses paths with Madison and her family, and — as we'll learn over the course of the season — she'll have a very good reason for keeping people at a distance. Even so, she'll end up developing some connections that surprise her, including a bond with Alicia."[1]

Pre-Apocalypse[]

Location Unknown[]

Prior to the outbreak began, she was an ICU nurse, she had one child, named Rose, and was married. During her time working at a hospital, she saw enough car accident and stroke victims to begin to tell who would and wouldn't survive their wounds.

Post-Apocalypse[]

Season 4[]

"Another Day in the Diamond"[]

June is found in the small town of Elgin, Texas, where she was camping out in the ruins of a burned car. She initially holds Madison at gunpoint, but is surrounded by Alicia, Strand, and Luciana.

She attempts to flee by climbing to the top of an oil tank, but falls through the deteriorated roof into the tank. Covered in oil, she is surrounded by the zombies that were lured into the tank by the Vultures before June's arrival. Madison jumps in to help June and the other survivors break open the door leading into the tank, releasing the oil and those inside. June is ultimately saved and rests with her rescuers.

Later, she is invited to come back with them to their community where she uses her medical experience to treat Nick's head wound. After she finishes treating Nick, Madison informs June that she can take a hot shower, much to her delight. However, June is on alert as the Vultures arrive at the settlement, demanding the survivors to abandon their home.

"Buried"[]

During the flashbacks, June accompanies Alicia Clark on a scouting mission for supplies to the Whirlin' Wavez amusement park. As they navigate through the amusement park, they realize that there was once a camp but was overrun after the fences fell. She and Alicia realize the remaining survivors of the camp must have barricaded the water slide's stairs and set up camp at the top of the slide. After climbing up the slippery slide, the two find medical supplies, but June takes the opportunity to distract Alicia and attempt to flee. The car she takes quickly runs out of gas, forcing June to explain that when she worked in the ICU, she saw all the time patients that she knew wouldn't make it and she believes the stadium will fall. Alicia eventually convinces June to return where she offers to set up an infirmary. Alone, June removes a six-shooter from her backpack and examines it.

In the present, June's backpack is amongst the things Alicia Clark, Victor Strand and Luciana Galvez have in a weapons cache. The group explains to John Dorie that when the stadium fell, they grabbed anything they could of use, including June's backpack. Inside the backpack, John finds June's gun, an exact match for his own. The shocked John identifies June as his missing girlfriend Laura whose real name he never knew. To the grief of John, Alicia's group tells him that June did not make it out of the stadium and is dead.

"Laura"[]

In a flashback, June is first seen lying unconscious in the water. John finds her and lays June on his bed and discovers a deep gash on her stomach. He dresses her wound and sleeps on the couch while she sleeps on his bed.

In the morning, June leaves the cabin and searches John's Jeep for keys and he catches her. John tells her where to find the keys but warns that the car needs a new battery. He suggests she at least takes some food, water and first aid supplies before leaving.

June gives John instructions on how to stitch her wound. She grimaces as John pierces her skin with a needle. John serves fish stew for dinner and asks if he can call her Laura because she refuses to tell him her name. He welcomes her to stay as long as she'd like. June insists she will leave as soon as she is better.

June rests in her bed and wakes up in the middle of the night and sees John cleaning his pistols. He mentions to June that he is also going on a supply run. June insists on joining him. He offers her boots to protect herself from snakes, but she refuses to wear shoes that might impede her ability to run. John and June row the canoe upriver. June inquires about John’s past. He informs her that he was a police officer.

June and John reach a bridge and notice a breached guardrail. They quickly deduce that Infected have been falling through the gap and floating downriver. John and June stop at a general store for supplies. June lays out first aid supplies for anyone else who visits the store.

June and John use corrugated metal from a gas station to mend the guardrail. June lies in bed while John watches a movie. She joins him on the couch. John offers to make some brittle. June watches John sleep during the movie. He wakes up and stares at her. She reveals that she lost her child.

June asks John to teach her how to fish. John gives June a fishing lesson and shows her how to gut the fish. They eat fish for dinner. June thanks John for teaching her. John and June play Scrabble and fish over the ensuing days.

June's stitches is removed by John. June announces that she's ready to leave, now that her wounds have healed. John goes outside to kill an Infected and realizes that their patch on the bridge isn't working. June offers to help John fix the bridge by blocking the gap with the Jeep.

June and John sit in the Jeep on the bridge. June says she learned how to hot-wire cars from a woman that she met in a camp. John sees one of his pistols hidden behind June's back and snatches it. June argues that they need the gun for protection, but John sternly refuses to use firearms.

June and John kill all the Infected on the bridge then drive the Jeep in front of the gap. An Infected attacks John in the driver's seat. June screams at him to use his gun. John refuses to shoot and, after a near-deadly struggle, stabs the Infected instead.

Back at the cabin, June points out that John almost died because of his refusal to use guns. John explains that when he was a cop, he fatally shot a robber in the leg. He says that he moved to a new town after everyone started calling him a hero.

Infected surround the Jeep on the bridge, jostling the Infected corpse inside and knocking the Jeep into neutral. Infected fall off the bridge into the river.

The two hear Infected piling up in the creek. They go outside and begin slaying the Infected. June becomes overrun by Infected. John gets his guns and saves her life by sharpshooting the Infected.

June thanks John and calls him an honorable person. John gives her a pistol to take with her on the road.

June joins John on the couch to watch a movie. John moves outside. She asks why he's avoiding her. "I love you," he says and asks her not to leave. They kiss.

June leaves the next morning, and leaves John with a message written with Scrabble tiles: "I love you too I'm sorry."

"Just in Case"[]

June removes glass from Alicia's arm at the stadium infirmary and asks Madison if they’re going out again for more supplies. Madison says they have no choice.

June tries to leave the stadium in a car, but Viv stands in her way. Viv tells Madison that June was trying to run off with one of their cars. June says that she was merely driving to a location that might have seeds and fertilizer. Madison and Strand join her.

June, Madison and Strand pull over at a motel and kill Infected in the front office. Madison deduces that the people killed each other over a can of baked beans. Strand finds a stash of snacks. Over dinner, June explains that she's taking Madison and Strand to an abandoned FEMA shelter. She admits that she had been planning to flee the stadium when Viv caught her but that she had intended to leave them with a map to the FEMA shelter. Strand orders her to hand over the car keys. Madison wakes up and finds June gone.

June drives to the FEMA shelter after hot-wiring a car. She knocks on the front doors and attracts a herd of Infected locked inside. June enters the FEMA shelter through a side entrance and goes to the pantry. She opens a locked box and retrieves a notebook containing instructions for survival. She also takes a set of keys with "JIC" written on a key-chain. June enters a cafeteria and breaks into tears when she sees kids' drawings on the wall. The herd hears her and migrates from the lobby into the cafeteria. She flees to another room and finds herself surrounded by Infected, some of whose faces she recognizes. She climbs to the top of scaffolding and sobs as the herd gathers below her.

Madison and Strand enter the FEMA shelter and spot June on the scaffolding. June tosses them the "JIC" keys and tells them there's a truck outside with supplies. Madison distracts Infected while Strand strings up some rope. June shimmies across the rope and escapes with Madison and Strand.

Madison, Strand, and June rest in the lobby. June explains that she and her daughter, Rose, had stayed at the shelter, where a woman named Ellen taught "Just in Case" survival skill classes. June says that she left the shelter to find antibiotics after Rose caught pneumonia. When she returned, Rose had died, turned and infected everyone else. June takes Madison and Strand to a well-stocked "Just in Case" truck that Ellen had prepared in the event of an emergency. After putting down the reanimated Ellen and removing her body, they prepare to return to the stadium. Strand assures June that anyone can start over.

In the present, June is revealed to be alive and part of the Vultures when she arrives at the designated meeting spot where Alicia and Melvin's group have a stand off. June arrives in a Land Rover and steps out. John is shocked to see her and walks toward her. Shocked and hurt by this deceit, Alicia reacts angrily towards this and shoots at June, but accidentally hits John as he steps in the way. He falls to the ground and June kneels beside him.

"The Wrong Side of Where You Are Now"[]

June tries to help John as he lies unconscious. Morgan runs over to help June while she gets medical supplies from an ambulance. Mel drives off in the ambulance. June runs after him to get the medical kit, but Alicia blows up the ambulance with a grenade launcher then strides up to June and accuses her of betraying their trust after bringing her in and blames her for taking away their home, but June hits her with a pipe and makes her escapes as the Vultures shoots at Alicia and June runs back to John's side.

She tells Morgan that she knows where to find more medical supplies. Alicia corners June and John at gunpoint. Althea rides up in the SWAT vehicle and aims her guns at Alicia, forcing Alicia to reluctantly lower her weapon. Morgan helps June carry John inside the vehicle and urges Charlie to board if she wants to live. Charlie joins him. June instructs Althea to drive to the stadium.

After leaving, Althea demands to know what happened to cause the stadium to fall and Charlie defends June and claims responsibility for what happened to Alicia's group.

In a flashback, Charlie takes June, Madison, Nick and Alicia to Mel, who is slumped over the driver's seat of a bus after getting into an accident. In the infirmary, Mel obtains a knife and orders June to bring him to Charlie. June punches him in the ribs and snatches the knife back. Mel urges her to flee the stadium and invites her to leave with him and Charlie.

June joins Madison where stands in the baseball diamond with her hammer. She starts undoing some construction over one of the dugouts. She tells her that they are not safe. She wants to consider leaving, but Madison shoots it down, argues that this is what the Vultures want them to do. June explains that she has been on the wrong side of what's happening to her and it's not worth risking lives to protect. Later, June informs Madison that she has prepared the infirmary for Ennis' imminent attack.

In the present, Althea's group arrives at the stadium in the SWAT vehicle. June explains that the Vultures never looted the stadium infirmary because even Ennis didn't dare go inside after the stadium fell. Althea plows through the stadium gates. As the dust clears, June, Althea and Morgan see that the stadium is filled with charred Infected. The Infected swarm around the SWAT vehicle.

"No One's Gone"[]

With John's bleeding temporarily stopped, June urges Al to get them to the closest entrance to the infirmary so she can get the medical supplies she needs. Al clears the way with her guns and June rushes inside along with Morgan Jones, fighting their way through walkers to the infirmary where she is able to get what she needs.

As they make their way out, Al contacts June to inform her that John is bleeding again and June gives her instructions. With Al claiming the way is clear, the two prepare to leave only to hear Alicia threatening Al over the radio. With John's condition worsening, Morgan and June argue about what to do before being confronted by Alicia. Though Alicia intends to kill June, Morgan is able to talk her down.

With the needed supplies recovered, the group leaves the stadium and June is successfully able to treat John's injuries and save his life. When John calls her Naomi, she reveals that Naomi is just another alias and her real name is June.

When the group stops for the night to finish the story, June listens to her friends explanation of how everything went down. June reveals that unlike everyone else, she didn't try to run and tried to talk everyone out of running. June had believed the walls could hold because of Madison but she was unable to change everyone's minds. Knowing the people were heading for trouble, June went for supplies but when she got back, it was too late because the caravan was overrun and the dead were coming at her. With no other choice, June ran until she couldn't anymore. Alicia points out that June still ran and joined the Vultures. As she hadn't been in the caravan, they thought she died inside the stadium. June revealed she thought they had died as well and when the Vultures found her, she joined them because she thought there wasn't anywhere else to go. Victor Strand acknowledges that June did what she had to and June listens with sadness to the rest of the story.

"People Like Us"[]

A month later, the group appears to have split up. As Morgan approaches and asks for John, June prepares a fish sitting in the back of a school bus.

Later, June is patching up John, saying he will be able to fish again soon. A hesitant June asks John if he's sure about returning to his cabin, to which he insists its safe.

They are interrupted when they notice Althea saving Charlie from a river walker. Back on the bridge, June advises Charlie to think about what happened with the walker and then leaves with Althea to figure out why walkers are washing up. Althea volunteers to lead June and John to the cabin before she leaves in the morning.

On the road, June and Althea discover a box that reads, "Take what you need, leave what you don't. See you further up on the road." They find MRE's and supplies and Althea decides to record it. June asks her about John's interviews and Althea says she only knows about her Laura and Naomi aliases.

As they continue walking, June asks Althea to turn the camera off for a moment. June laments to Althea that she's not the Laura John fell in love with. She explains that was a scared version of her, and she's afraid if she returns to the cabin with him he'll realize she's not who he thinks. Al doesn't buy it and reminds her she's not as different as she thinks. They decide to head back to the truck when they sense a storm coming their way.

As the storm hits, June and Althea get stuck in the truck, which gets pelted with walkers from the wind.

"Weak"[]

After the storm passes, June and Althea remain on the road. June watches John's story on Althea's tapes and radios him to thank him for the kind words he said on the tape. Althea returns and tells her to conserve the battery on the radio. Without gas, they're forced to hang out by the truck for a day.

The next morning, they hear someone on the walkie. June asks if it's John but is met with silence. Althea starts feeling ill due to lack of food and water, so June convinces her to come with her to track down the person on the radio.

On the road, June and Althea locate a truck and find a box telling them to take what they need. They drive the truck back and June apologizes for using all the battery in her camera. Althea forgives her and tells her that she never really had anyone before the apocalypse because of her strenuous work life. They try the walkie again and unknown to them, they are overheard by the woman Morgan communicated with before. For a moment, Morgan hears June over the radio. He walks off to try to find a better signal. June tries to answer but the signal doesn't allow it. Althea, meanwhile, begins vomiting. She has a fever and tries to downplay it.

Suddenly, the SWAT truck drives past June and Althea. Althea chases after it, dangerously speeding the truck, which maneuvers around a refrigerator and causes them to pop a tire and spin out. Althea, who's getting sicker by the second, reveals to June that all her medicine is in the truck.

June struggles to replace their truck tire while Al's condition continues to worsen. They hear the SWAT truck guns down the road and Al begs June to run over to it, which she reluctantly agrees to. She quickly locates it but is held at gunpoint by a man, who asks where her friend is. Turns out he overheard them on the radio.

June pleads that she just wants the medicine, but he won't budge. She grabs his arm and they wrestle for the gun until June wins. She runs over to the truck to discover it's out of gas again. Inside, June can't find the medicine and demands the man to tell her where it is, but he pleads ignorance, so she lets him go.

June radios Althea to ask where the medicine is, but she doesn't respond because she's busy fighting off a swamp walker while trying to stay awake. Althea finally kills it by crushing it with the truck and radios June to tell her there was no medicine and she just wanted her to get the van back.

June returns with medicine she found on the bus, which instantly helps Althea recover. June is furious that she almost killed someone for medicine that wasn't there, but Althea brushes it off. June's still upset, and demands to know why the truck matters to her so much. Althea confesses the tapes in her van are all she has left of the people she used to know and love.

Morgan climbs a water tower to communicate his location with a stronger signal, and June and Althea miraculously hear him. June attempts to contact him, however, their walkie dies but June says they have the gas to make it to his location. Unable to abandon the SWAT truck, Althea tells June to go without her. June pleads for her to stay but Althea leaves anyway. As June drives off, Althea fires her gun and then decides to come along after all.

June and Althea drive behind Morgan and his new group. They finally reunite and Morgan tells June he still hasn't found the others. Morgan introduces them to Sarah, Wendell and Jim and offers them water from the "take what you need" box while June takes Morgan's walkie to radio the man from before.

Alone, June radios to the person who left the boxes. "I'm sorry about what I did," she says. "I'm sorry I made you walk away. I wanna show you that you're wrong. Sometimes we don't just watch out for the people we know. Mile marker 27 on 365. I'm with a group of people. We've got food, water, supplies, everything you need to get back on your feet." She invites him to come with her and he reveals his name to be Quinn and she introduces herself as June.

He eventually shows up at the agreed upon mile marker and asks where she is, and to their confusion, they're both "at" mile marker 27. Quinn discovers a "7" was stuck on to the sign when suddenly he's attacked and eaten by a walker controlled by Martha. June is left wondering what happened to him.

"Blackjack"[]

At night, June hopelessly searches for Quinn, along with Althea. Morgan is willing to continue, but the others are looking forward to moving on.

After Sarah kills a walker, Jim notices the "Take what you need" message marked on its forehead and June immediately radios Quinn. However, she only hears walker groans on the other side, followed by Martha telling her he's dead. Morgan recognizes the voice and radios her.

The woman immediately recognizes Morgan. She learned it from watching Althea's tapes and insists people getting help makes them weak. She wants them to stop trying to help people, which will make them strong again, and she won't have to intervene.

The next day, Morgan plants more boxes to try to help people. This time, he instructs people to radio him on VHF channel 4. June is hopeful John will see one of these. Morgan is confident they'll find him and everyone else.

On the road, June and the rest pick up Luciana and continue on their way. Suddenly, they are contacted by Charlie and Alicia on the radio.

Alicia tells them she found the channel from the box. Morgan tells her to wait at the mile marker and that they are gonna pick them, when suddenly, Martha radios both of them and warns Morgan of not taking her advice to stop leaving the boxes.

Morgan tells her he'll continue to find the people they're looking for until they find and help her. Sarah spots Althea's SWAT truck appear behind them. Panicked, Morgan radios Martha to ask what she's doing and she tells him, "You lose people... You lose yourself." Morgan tells the group to get down just as the woman pulls the truck beside them, opens the gun hatch and opens fire.

"MM 54"[]

June and the others slowly get up after the gunfire stops. Morgan notices leaking fuel and says they need to get out of the truck immediately. June, Morgan, Althea and Luciana get out of the truck. Althea goes after Martha with a knife, but falls back as Martha emerges from the back and releases a zombified Quinn onto June.

Wendell shoots Martha in the chest and Morgan puts down Quinn before June can get bitten, when suddenly, the truck explodes and attracts a herd from the woods. Martha smiles and drives off in the SWAT truck as the group flees.

June and the others walk along the road with the herd in pursuit. June insists on checking everyone's injuries from the shootout. Morgan spots a sign for a hospital. Jim questions Morgan's leadership and refuses to go to the hospital with the group. He changes his mind, however, when he sees the herd getting closer.

At the hospital, Morgan guards the entrance, which he's barricaded with furniture. June updates him on everyone’s condition and assures Morgan that he made the right call in taking them to the hospital.

After the herd breaks through the front door barricade, Morgan leads the group onto a floor that is clear of walkers. They barricade the stairwell entrance. Morgan suggests they secure the other stairwells.

June, Luciana and Wendell flee as the walkers break through the stairwell barricade. The group meets at the elevators. The lights turn on and the elevator doors open. The group piles into the elevator just in time to escape the herd.

On the roof, June checks Jim's injuries and realizes he has been bitten on the back. Jim reels from the news and storms off, realizing his death is imminent. June assures a saddened Morgan that he will find a way to get them out.

"I Lose People..."[]

On the roof, June assures Morgan that they'll find a way off somehow.

June and the group, except for Jim, venture back into the hospital to locate Althea. Instead, they find Althea's note telling them she's going to try to escape, along with instructions on protecting her tapes if she dies. Morgan leaves to find her while June and the rest stay behind.

Back on the roof, Morgan tells June and the group that he'll find a way to distract the walkers below to let the rest escape. Suddenly, John radios Morgan to give him the all-clear on speaking freely on the walkies and June responds immediately. They're both elated to talk to one another. June gives him her location and he says they're on their way.

Morgan tosses a walker off the ledge an onto a car, attracting the walkers away from the hospital entrance. "Momo's a goddamn genius", Sarah beams as she and the rest escape into the ambulance. June radios Morgan to follow them, but he tells her to go without him and stays on the roof with Jim.

After a while, June radios Morgan again, this time she's with John and the others in the SWAT truck. Alicia and the others chime in on the radio, telling him they're going to save him. Morgan looks down and sees their plan: a fire truck.

While Morgan tosses his stick down and gingerly begins climbing down the building, June, Alicia and Luciana draw a herd of walkers and barely make it back to the fire truck alive, only to find Martha missing.

As the group gets surrounded by walkers, Jim decides to sacrifice himself to save them. Before he does, he radios Sarah the recipe for his beer. She writes it down, Jim takes a deep breath, and throws himself off the ledge and onto a car, attracting the walkers away from the fire truck.

On the road, Sarah decides they should name the beer "Jimbo's Beerbos" in his memory. Morgan proposes they find Althea and then travel to Alexandria together.

"... I Lose Myself"[]

After the group finds Al, June and John tell her they found her alone in the street with a tape from Martha. At night, the group sits around a campfire and Morgan describes his plan to pick up more boxes at the truck stop to distribute them enroute to Alexandria.

The next day, the group arrives at the truck stop and stocks up on supplies from the store. June and John have a conversation, where June confesses to John she was worried he would be disappointed in learning she was a different person than he thought, but he assures her she's everything he thought and kisses her.

Outside, Althea loads the van when some walkers approach. Al jumps down to fight them, but is too weak and passes out. Alicia shoots at the herd and then instructs everyone to get inside as the noise will attract more.

Inside, everyone doubles over in pain as more walkers scrape at the windows. June realizes that someone opened the water bottles in the store and poisoned the water. Al deduces it was Martha. June tells Morgan that Martha poisoned the water but loses contact.

Finally able to communicate, Morgan tells them it's anti-freeze. June tells them the antidote is ethanol and the group hatches a plan to get it from one of the trucks outside.

June and Charlie create a distraction while the rest kill the walkers and push forward. Althea jumps in her SWAT truck and machine guns the walkers outside, while accidentally putting holes into the tank and causing the ethanol to drain out.

June updates Morgan on their problem and he tells them he can't lose them. John encourages him and says he's strong with or without them.

Suddenly, Morgan shows up and reveals that he brought a truck of Jim's Augie's Ale, saving the day. The group drinks the beer and suddenly regain their strength. Junes watches as John jokingly warns Charlie that this is the last time she drinks a beer until she is 21.

Morgan then brings June and the group back to the place he left Martha. He finds her severed arm attached to the police car and sees her turned, walking on the road. He stabs her in the head and then buries her.

Morgan tells everyone he's no longer going to Alexandria. He says that Martha became the person she was because nobody helped her when she needed it and that more people need help.

The group arrives at Clayton's supply factory and Morgan says they should follow his path and help others. Alicia says it can't just be about boxes, they need to build something like Madison would want. Althea suggests they can start with the people she interviewed.

Shortly after, June and the group mobilizes a convoy of vehicles outside the factory. They load up on ammo and head out. Morgan gets on his walkie and broadcasts that they are coming to help anyone who might be in need.

Season 5[]

Four months after using the denim factory as a headquarters to distribute the supply boxes, June and the group have had poor luck in finding or recruiting other survivors, with many of the people interviewed on Althea's tapes dead or missing.

"Here to Help"[]

June and the group flies on a plane after hearing a message on radio from someone named Logan. However, the plane crashes in the middle of the woods on an unknown territory. In the overturned cockpit, June and Althea wake up with walkers clawing at them from the windows.

John shoots at the walkers from the windows and frees June. She then makes it into the fuselage to look at Luciana and her impaling. June helps her as John and Althea use hacksaws to cut her free. They place her on a stretcher and Althea hands Alicia her weapon.

Alicia takes the lead but a truck rushes in with Annie driving. Max says it's their sister so they all pack in the van and leave. On the road, Annie says walkers are the least of their problems. "You have no idea where you landed, do you?" She asks them mysteriously and says she stays away from this area but got stuck there recently. Morgan says they’re trying to help a man they met on the radio named Logan, who claims his place got surrounded. Annie stops the van and says the place is worse than it seems.

They arrive at a gate comprised of walkers chained together with their own intestines. The tree above them has walker heads hanging from the branches. Annie says they're all over the area and she refuses to drive through. Morgan says they'll walk and Annie reminds him he doesn't even know this guy, but Morgan still wants to try. Annie warns he better be worth it as Alicia cuts down the fence and they ride on through.

Later, the group arrives at a truck stop to look for Logan but find the place empty. They carry Luciana inside as John and Althea inspect the place. Morgan tries to reach Logan on the radio to no avail. Alicia reports that no one's here and that something must be up. Annie gets spooked and tells her brothers they need to leave now. Alicia tries to calm them down but Max points his rifle at her and warns them to leave soon. The kids leave as June pulls the pole out of Luciana's shoulder.

A while later, Morgan gets a radio call from Logan. He says he is the "L" in "C&L" which is the logo on all of the trucking equipment. He admits he never shared Clayton's world view and he made them fly to the furthest truck stop he knew of so they could take over without a fight. Alicia reminds him they crashed a plane to help him and Logan says he is just trying to reclaim what's his instead of hurting them. He cuts off communication and walks away.

That night, John tells June he's optimistic about the future, claiming they have all the luck in the world. She says he helped her when she thought no one could, so they might be able to help people in the future.

"The Hurt That Will Happen"[]

At the truck stop, June patches up Luciana, who is eager to heal so she can learn to play the accordion due to the pain killer drugs. John arrives to tell June and Luciana that Morgan and Alicia headed north and they should head south, while Luciana should stay at the station. He gives her one of his revolvers for protection.

In the woods, June talks with John as he radios Morgan and Alicia to tell them that their truck broke down. Alicia warns him of the radioactive walkers that he can't kill without risking their own health. A while later, June and John follow a sign to a nearby camp to find the kids. They arrive to find cabins full of walkers and several bullets caskets on the ground.

That night, John radios the others and the group meets up in the campsite, where Grace inspects the walkers in the cabins and confirms they were exposed to the radiation. June then inspects a car to ride back to the truck stop alongside John, when they get a radio call from Luciana who tells them they are getting a plane from Strand and that the long-range antenna was taken out by the wind. June then orders her to go back inside as the communication cuts off.

Afterward, June listens as Morgan tells Grace tells Grace they'll help her find the rest of her friends but she declines, revealing that she has been exposed to the radiation and has limited time to live and does not want to risk anyone else's lives. Morgan reminds her they'll always be on the other side of the walkie if she needs them and Grace requests they contact her if they find any more of her people.

At the truck stop, June and the group arrives and awakens Luciana, who is still drugged and scared that the dead are waiting. Outside, they find the heads hanging from a billboard.

"Humbug's Gulch"[]

June and the group kill several walkers barriers on different roadblocks in an attempt to find Althea as they cross off circles on a map, forming a perimeter.

On the road, June and John drive out of walkie range and find another walker roadblock. They approach it and immediately come under fire, forcing them to retreat in their van and drive through the barrier. They arrive at a ranch called Humbug's Gulch, which John says it's similar to his old stomping grounds and claims they can find guns there. They make their way inside one of the buildings and find a locker full of guns and ammunition.

Afterward, they go outside in the middle of a windstorm so they can return to the van. Suddenly, a stranger approaches and starts shooting at them, causing them to retreat. He shoots at one of the tires but John clips the stranger with his gun. June covers him from behind and knocks Dwight with her pistol. They carry him inside the building, where they tie him up.

June treats Dwight's gunshot wound as John rummages his stuff, finding maps from other states and notes from Sherry. Dwight 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, June and John 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 that his name is Dwight 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. He radios June and John 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 there isn’t one. "I've been looking for Sherry for, I don't know, at least a year," he says. June ultimately tells Dwight 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. 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.

June covers John from the car as he shoots most of the walkers and ultimately manages to save Dwight. That night, June loads up the car when John thanks her for talking Dwight off the ledge and confesses it made him reconsider how he was showing his love for her. They hug and kiss.

Suddenly, Morgan, Alicia, and Luciana arrive at the town. Dwight walks up and calls out to Morgan. June and the group are shocked that they know each other. 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.

On a roadblock, June and the group are about to take it down when Max radios her 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.

"The Little Prince"[]

June and the group arrive at the truck stop with several parts of their plane. She 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, June takes a look at Annie's ankle and advises she wait a week to run so she's more prepared. John shows up and tells June he and Dwight are going to continue looking for Sherry. They kiss and June tells Dwight to keep him out of trouble.

After Morgan leaves to help Grace, June accompanies Althea as she works inside the plane cockpit. She thinks Althea is hiding something related to her disappearance and offers an off-the-record conversation to help, but Althea doesn't budge.

June and Althea then witness alongside the others at the sky as Strand and Charlie approach in Jim’s beer-themed hot air balloon to their rescue, until it unfortunately crashes in the radiation zone.

"Still Standing"[]

At the truck stop, June and the group realizes there's a hole in the plane and they have to find more gas. Al claims she knows a place and goes along with June. A while later, they arrive at the mountain with the helicopter fuel as John finally makes contact with June. She warns him the reactor will soon meltdown and he needs to rush.

As they pack up the fuel on the truck, Althea finally tells June about Isabelle and claims she misses her. June explains how she was always grateful for what she had with John when she didn't know if she would see him again. June says she's certain she'll see Isabelle again, giving her a new sense of hope.

"Is Anybody Out There?"[]

In a flashback, June and the group takes turns on the radio trying to reach out to strangers who might need help, to no avail. In the present, she and the group wait on the airfield for the rest to arrive.

June then witness the nuclear plant explosion in awe, making her radio John immediately. She desperately vows to come get him but he tells her not to and makes her promise to get on the plane whether he makes it back or not. He confesses his love for her and tells her she's his reason to live and he wants her to have a reason to live, too. After a while, Morgan radios Luciana to tell everyone to get ready to fly but she says John and Dwight aren't here yet, so Morgan asks them to help him fight the walkers. She and the group then start walking backwards to the plane as the walkers close in. June tells Morgan she made John a promise and they have to get on the plane.

June and the group makes a run for the plane as John and Dwight drive their way past the walkers in Sherry's van. 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.

In the air, June tells John she didn't want to leave and he comforts her. John then tells June he worried he would never talk to her again and doesn't want to waste another moment. He fashions a candy wrapper into a ring, gets down on one knee, and proposes. She gleefully says yes and the two kiss. That night, the plane roars toward the dark runway as Wendell fixes the lights at the last second, allowing the plane to finally land.

June happily reunites with the rest of the group and meets Daniel. 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 June 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.

"Channel 4"[]

Sometime later, June 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, June remembers how she didn't trust Madison at first when she tried to help her but now she is following her example of reaching out to others in need. She is also revealed to be part of the basecamp security and of escorting people to outposts when necessary, alongside Grace. June then promises they'll eventually find a place to call home.

At night, June and the rest of the group reunite in their camp to dine together. Al then asks the group what each want, with June vowing to find them a permanent home. The tape concludes with everyone pleading with future survivors to help others.

"Ner Tamid"[]

June and the convoy set up camp in a field to rest for the night. The next day, Sarah admits they're running low on gas so June suggests they go on a supply mission to find more. June and John then debate what to do about Logan searching for them when Dwight informs the group Charlie's missing.

After a while, Charlie radios June to tell her she ran away because she was tired of the constant moving. She reveals where she is and asks her to bring car batteries. Sometime later, June and John arrive with the battery and Jacob thanks them for keeping the eternal flame lit. Charlie asks them to help Jacob repair his fence and they agree. Outside, June tells Charlie the temple isn't the right place to settle down because it's too small and too far from a water source.

June and John then tell Charlie it's time to go to the camp as she suggests Jacob the group could live there with him. Suddenly, Sarah radios them about Logan's crew and June says they're on their way. They head outside to find all the walkers from the locked-up building surrounding them. Jacob takes them to the roof and explains he and his congregants were holed up in the temple at the onset of the apocalypse. He explains that he left to gather supplies and when he came back, everyone was dead.

June and John climb down and use a ladder to create a bridge in between cars to avoid the walkers. As they make their final ladder bridge the gate gives way and they get trapped on top of a car. June tells Charlie there's only one way out of this but Charlie refuses to give the place up. However, she talks with Jacob and finally relents, making him use a horn and lure the walkers into the temple. June and John lock the doors as Jacob and Charlie escape out the back.

June and the group then drive to Dwight and Sarah's location in Al's SWAT truck and save them from having to confront Logan's crew. Later, Charlie apologizes for running away but June says the perfect place is still out there. Jacob says that's called faith and that he'll start looking around for what he wants.

"Leave What You Don't"[]

June and John drive towards Tank Town to confront Logan and his crew. On the road, they are contacted by Alicia, who tells them that someone might need help, but they're forced to continue onto the oil rigs. Once they arrive, they position themselves on a hill. John shoots at the walker carousel from afar and radios Logan that he better not try anything, but Logan calls John's bluff and says he knows they don't have the guts to kill him.

At night, June helps John pick off incoming walkers but some manage to fall off the cliff and crawl, causing a fire. She and John provide cover fire for their companions when Jacob, Annie, and Tess arrive to help. Later, June and the rest help kill the remaining walkers and control the fire.

The next morning, June 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.

June 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 June a settlement for the group 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. June and the group are then forced to abandon the place.

"Channel 5"[]

June and the rest of the caravan keep traveling in search of a permanent home. She checks on Grace and also informs the group of her current state, claiming they need to find a settlement soon. At night, June helps Grace after she passes 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. However, no one listens to Virginia and she 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.

June 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, June 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. June and the others then hear as Morgan radios Virginia for help.

"End of the Line"[]

June and the rest of the caravan survivors rest along the outskirts of Humbug's Gulch as Morgan contacts with Virginia for help. After a while, Dwight arrives with some horses and explains if they're alive then there must be water nearby. They argue over whether to stay or not and eventually decide to stay, where they'll deal with the walkers and Virginia. June 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 quickly 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. June and the rest lead the herd into the river while Morgan and Dwight 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, June and John get married inside a chapel in the town. They exchange vows and kiss as the rest of the group looks on with hope. 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. John tells June he loves her as they are separated and placed in different cars.

Season 6[]

"The Key"[]

When John is at his home, he hears a knock at the door. Going to answer it, he is surprised to see June, who hugs him. June says that she was relocated to Lawton as a reward for John's work as a ranger. She is welcomed in and unpacks.

"Bury Her Next to Jasper's Leg"[]

June rushes a patient into Sarah's truck, which has been transformed into a mobile medical unit, and enlists Sarah to help her surgically remove the patient's infected appendix. The patient dies during surgery and turns, then attacks June. Sarah stabs it in the head. June buries the patient on the side of the road and says they're stretched too thin to reach patients in time. She says that she approached Virginia about building a hospital, but Virginia rejected her proposal. John radios June to report that he's enroute to rendezvous with them.

June rides with John while Sarah follows in the truck. John proposes that he and June run away to the cabin that Janis told him about. Without going into detail, he says that he needs to get as far away from Virginia as possible. June worries that Virginia would hunt them down. They're interrupted by an urgent call from Lucy on the walkie, requesting medical help at the oil quarry. John proposes they leave for the cabin after they're finished helping at the quarry.

June and John arrive outside the quarry and find burned and bloody workers staggering out of the entrance. Lucy explains that an oil well exploded and that people are still trapped in the quarry. Virginia arrives and orders her men to interrogate survivors about the explosion. June privately tells John she'll run away with him after they leave the quarry. June, Lucy and Sarah enter the quarry. Virginia sees a spray-painted message, "The End is the Beginning", and refuses to let anyone leave until she finds out who was responsible. June argues that they need to evacuate all the victims to give them medical attention.

June finds Wes with a grave stomach wound and tries to stop the bleeding. A walker attacks June. Virginia shoots the walker and finds nails taped to the walker's fingers. She vows to find out who put the nails on the walker's fingers. Virginia tells June that she's wasting resources by treating a patient who is probably mortally wounded. June ignores Virginia. Wes screams in pain. June asks Lucy to get sedatives. Virginia refuses to let June sedate him until he's interrogated. June says Wes might die if they don't move him to the truck. Virginia insists on questioning him and reveals that Hill and Marcus found spray paint in Wes' bunk.

Virginia asks Wes how long he's been with the rebel group. Wes insists he only uses the spray paint for art and does not know what she's talking about. Virginia shoves her finger in his wound. Wes screams but still maintains that he knows nothing. June injects Wes with sedatives, angering Virginia. June opens the truck and finds that a number of the quarry victims have already died, turned and eaten other patients. Lucy loads Wes onto the truck and leaves the quarry as June and Virginia kill the walkers. Virginia ushers June inside a building as a well explodes.

Virginia wakes up and finds a walker on top of her. The walker bites Virginia as she fights it off. Someone radios Virginia and says they're trying to get back into the quarry. Virginia spots an axe and douses alcohol on her wound to amputate her hand. June grabs the axe before Virginia can get it. Virginia asks June to chop off her hand to prevent the infection from spreading, but June refuses. Virginia tackles June. June holds the axe to Virginia's neck and keeps it there as she radios Lucy with instructions to remove shrapnel from Wes' stomach. Virginia tells June that she's just trying to protect everyone from a dangerous group of rebels, then asks what June wants from her. Virginia insists that everything she does is for Dakota.

June hacks off Virginia's hand. Virginia wakes up and finds her amputated arm cauterized with hot metal. June tells Virginia that there is something she wants in exchange for helping Virginia. John digs through the rubble and rescues them. Wes wakes up in the truck. Lucy and Sarah ask June why she saved Virginia's life. June says that Virginia agreed to give her a hospital and that she also agreed to assign Wendell to the hospital. Wendell arrives in a car and reunites with Sarah.

John tells June that he's ready to leave for the cabin. June reveals that Virginia is giving her a hospital and that she no longer wants to run. John pleads with June and says that he can't stay. June insists that Virginia can change and that she's actually trying to protect them all from a rebel group. John tells June that Virginia is duping her. June and Sarah ride in the truck as John follows in his car. The truck veers left, toward Lawton. John veers right, toward the cabin.

"The Door"[]

June, Grace, Sarah, Luciana, Wes, and Daniel were rounded up by the rangers and held in the Lawton town jail as bargaining chips for Virginia as she attempts to get her sister back. June is set free and goes with Virginia and Hill to John's cabin. Morgan radios Virginia and explains that John is floating toward the cabin after Dakota shot him. He offers to talk with Virginia only after she finds John and helps him. June runs outside when she sees John's body wash up on the river shore. John crawls toward her: he's turned. A heartbroken June stabs him in the head with a knife.

"Things Left to Do"[]

Following John's murder, the heartbroken June digs a grave for her husband outside of his cabin while Virginia desperately attempts to contact Morgan on the radio. After finishing, a crying June looks at John's blood on her hands and rolls John's body into the grave. June notices that John's remaining gun has fallen out of his holster and takes it and contemplates shooting Virginia, but is stopped by Hill who takes the gun. June demands to know why Dakota killed John, reminding Virginia that June had saved her life and that it's the only reason that Virginia is still breathing and John isn't. Virginia claims not to know why Dakota killed John, but June doesn't buy it. Virginia silently walks away and June fills in John's grave.

That night, in Lawton, Daniel, Luciana, Sarah and Grace are lined up by the Rangers as Virginia, Hill and June arrive. Luciana asks where John is and June simply nods at Virginia, causing her friends to realize that John is dead. June is lined up next to Daniel and Virginia begins demanding Morgan's location from the group without success.

Virginia threatens Grace's life and Morgan arrives to confront Virginia, threatening that if anything happens to Grace or his friends, she won't see her sister ever again. Instead of giving in to Virginia's threats and demands that he turn Dakota over, Morgan reveals that she is a liar and a hypocrite who broke her own rules by covering up Dakota's murder of Cameron. Despite Virginia's orders to begin executing everybody, Victor Strand turns his gun on Virginia and leads several Rangers he has been recruiting into an army for Virginia in turning against her. When Virginia draws a gun, Strand shoots her in the shoulder and she takes Grace hostage, provoking a gunfight between the Rangers loyal to Strand and the Rangers loyal to Virginia. Virginia ducks under a car for safety along with Sarah and Luciana.

The next day, June, now wearing her hair loose, arrives on horseback at the Valley Town with Daniel, Luciana and Wes as Morgan argues with Strand and Sherry over the captive Virginia's fate. Morgan successfully argues to make Virginia live with what she's done and impales his battle axe into the dirt until the day that it's needed again. Strand backs up Morgan's decision and when Morgan asks for people willing to live by the laws and foundations that they are building at the dam, June is the first to join him, followed by Daniel, Luciana, Wes, Sarah, Grace and Jacob. Jacob hands June a letter that John had written to her when he thought that he would never see June again, stating that he thought that June should have it. June puts the letter in her pocket without reading it.

Later, as a chained-up Virginia wakes up, June tells her that she has removed the bullet and Virginia will be fine to go if she rest up a few more days. Virginia thanks June for saving her life for a second time and Morgan announces that they have decided to allow Virginia to take Dakota, who is actually her daughter and leave as Dakota needs her mother. However, Alicia warns that if either of them show their face again it's the end for them which Virginia acknowledges and Morgan gives Virginia directions on a back way out so that she can avoid her Rangers. As Morgan and Alicia leave to get Dakota, June announces that she's staying to change Virginia's dressings.

As June starts to tend to her wound, Virginia recognizes that she owes June a lot of apologies, but June states that it has nothing to do with Virginia and that death seems to follow her wherever she goes "like some kind of punishment for my past." June reveals to Virginia that she had a daughter named Rose who was sick and whom June tried to protect but instead ended up getting every survivor in her camp killed. As a result, June thinks that the love of her life getting killed by someone's daughter that they were trying to protect is exactly what she deserves.

As June walks away, Virginia insists that they were both just trying to protect their kids, but this makes June angry. June demands to know if Virginia knew what Dakota was capable of before she murdered John after what Dakota did to Cameron and if Virginia protected her anyway. Virginia insists that she would do anything for her daughter and June approaches her, drawing one of John's guns. June identifies it as the gun that Dakota had killed John with and points it at Virginia's head. Stating that she didn't protect her daughter after Rose killed someone and reminds Virginia, who begins to plead with June, that she had asked why Dakota had killed John. June believes that Virginia lied about not knowing why Dakota did it and that Virginia is the reason for John's murder. As Virginia begs June to stop, June shoots Virginia in the head, executing her in revenge for John's murder.

June leaves the church as Morgan, Alicia and Dakota approach, putting on John's hat and ignoring Morgan's demands to know what happened. Wiping Virginia's blood from her face, June silently walks out of the dam and down the road.

"Handle With Care"[]

Daniel sits in a jail cell and performs a cognitive test. He answers someone's questions and says he felt hopeful on the day it began. It's revealed that his interrogator is June, and she is asking questions as part of a psychological evaluation. Daniel completes some psychological tests for June. She concludes that his problem is psychological, not neurological, and says it's treatable. She promises to read more about his condition and return.

"In Dreams"[]

In Grace's dream state, an older June is a doctor with Charlie as her assistant. Apparently not recognizing Grace, June performs a checkup on Grace following her arrival to Valley Town.

In reality, Morgan and Grace are on their way to the hospital that June is building when they are ambushed by Riley and four cultists. June is five to six hours away and without gas to drive to them and promises to come by horse to help. With Grace unconscious, Morgan keeps in touch with June via radio for medical advice on dealing with the situation.

"J.D."[]

June approaches Valley Town to check on Grace's health. Morgan bars her from entering and says Grace's baby would still be alive if June hadn't teamed up with Virginia to build a remote hospital. June checks abandoned cars for supplies. "The End is the Beginning," is spray-painted on the road. June marks the location on a map of locations that the enemy group has been to. She looks at the letter that John wrote her but does not read it. 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 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. June finds an RV on the road and climbs in through a window. She sees a map marked with photos of places that the enemy group has been to. The sniper corners her at gunpoint and asks why she's here. June says they're on the same team and proposes they share information about the enemy group. The man says he's been searching for the group longer than she has. June says his map is missing a location – the orchard. The man orders her to drive him there.

June drives at gunpoint. She swerves to a stop and aims her gun at the man. He recognizes her revolver and says the "J.D." initials engraved on the handle are his: He is John's father. June asks J.D. if he has any questions about John. J.D. deduces that John is dead. June realizes she lost her jacket with John's letter and says they need to backtrack. J.D. instead orders her to drive to the orchard. June turns the engine but the RV doesn't start. J.D. finds a walker stuck on the underside of the RV. The RV smokes up when June tries to start it again. J.D. says the RV is busted.

June reads a newspaper clipping about J.D. putting Teddy away for life. J.D. says Teddy is responsible for the spray-painted messages and admits he had to frame Teddy to land him in prison. He says that his lie drove him to drink and that he left his family because John was better off without him. June realizes that Hill is probably hiding at John's cabin and says they must go there. J.D. refuses, but June says Hill has John's other pistol. June and J.D. walks through the woods. June offers to dress a wound on J.D.'s hand. J.D. suggests they stop at the local bait shop — the same one where June and John used to rent movies.

June patches up J.D.'s hand at the bait shop. J.D. locks her inside a room to keep her safe while he goes to the cabin. Dwight and Sherry later rescue her and June shoots Hill in the head as he was about to kill J.D. He wakes up in the cabin and goes outside. He sees June thanking Dwight and Sherry for finding her jacket.

June finds J.D. outside and urges him to get more rest. J.D. laments that he never said good-bye to John. June says it's not too late. June, Dwight, Sherry and J.D. stand by John's grave. June reads John's letter out loud. In his letter, John hopes June will forgive him for leaving her to save Janis, just like he forgave his father. He says his father was a good man who left him out of love. John says June helped him realize his life was worth living. June cries.

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. June starts the truck. June and J.D. arrive in Valley Town. Morgan and June reconcile. J.D. says they need to start strategizing, because Teddy won't stop until they're all dead.

"USS Pennsylvania"[]

June will appear in this episode.

"The Beginning"[]

At a lookout, Dakota discusses with Teddy how he'd encouraged her to be who she really is and Teddy embraces her. John Dorie Sr. arrives and reveals that he has come to forgive Dakota for his son's murder. Teddy insists that Dakota has nothing to feel sorry about, but she questions if John really means it, apparently pleased that she is being forgiven despite Dakota's claims that she feels no remorse. John drops his gun in a gesture of his honesty, but as Teddy goes to shoot him, June shoots Teddy in the arm, causing him to drop his gun which lands with a metallic clanking sound. June reveals that she also forgives Dakota and that her husband was right about it not being too late even if they only believe it for however long they have left. Dakota questions why June would've killed Virginia if she truly believes that and June explains that she lost what John believed when she lost her husband but she found it again and she encourages Dakota to do the same thing.

Kicking away Teddy's gun, John uncovers a hidden trapdoor leading to a secret bunker. John confronts Teddy on his claims that he intends to die at the end and suggests that it was "just a bunch of hot air to get your lambs to march to their slaughter" and June insists to Dakota that they aren't lying to her and are only doing what they believe. Dakota demands answers from Teddy who states that as they didn't shoot off all of the missiles, they will go back to the sub to finish the job once the dust clears. Dakota demands to know if Teddy even meant it when he said that he understood her and demands to know why he didn't reveal the existence of the bunker. Teddy claims that he couldn't take the risk of anyone else finding out and that he wants it to be about the two of them. However, John reveals that Teddy is only keeping Dakota alive as he needs two people to launch the remaining missiles, the two launch keys needing to be turned simultaneously. Shaken, Dakota insists that she and Teddy are family and he doesn't want Dakota to be something that she's not, but John attempts to convince her that Teddy will Dakota once he's done with her. June tries to get Dakota to see the bunker as a sign that she can have a second chance, but they are interrupted by the missile's warheads breaking apart in the sky. Teddy pushes Dakota to make a choice: die with him bringing about the end or go with John and June into the bunker and pretend to be someone that she's not, leaving Dakota conflicted over what to do and suffering an emotional breakdown. Asking if his son had ever told June about the St. Louis Barn Raiser, John distracts Dakota by firing his gun into the air and as she shoots John in the arm, June shoots Dakota's gun out of her hand. Entering the bunker, June tries one last time to convince Dakota to come with them, but she insists upon seeing the end. John follows and locks the bunker door behind them.

When one of the nukes hits nearby, the shockwave rocks the bunker, sending debris flying and forcing John and June to take cover deeper inside.

Season 7[]

"Cindy Hawkins"[]

John Dorie Sr. sleeps in an underground bunker. A sign on the wall reads: "Day 25, days til opening 340." John wakes up and eats breakfast with June.

John and June perform their daily routines. John tries to make contact with outsiders via radio. They play Life and share some whiskey. Before bed, June changes the "days til opening" count to 339. They perform the same routine every day up to day 69.

June and John are awoken by a deep rumble. A shelving unit topples over, revealing a hole in the wall. They tear down the wall and discover the room where Teddy tortured and killed his victims.

John sets up lights in the torture chamber, determined to find answers to questions he still has about Teddy's murders. He tells June that he never found the body of Teddy's final victim, Cindy Hawkins. The walls groan.

June applies sealant on their homemade hazmat suits. Sensing John's impatience with her progress, June reminds him that according to a pamphlet that she found on surviving a nuclear attack, it's unsafe to go above ground until the "days til opening" countdown is over.

John goes into the torture chamber to look for boards to shore up the wall. He finds some of Teddy's notes.

John shores up the wall, then asks where the whiskey is. June says the bottles were destroyed when the shelves fell.

Unable to sleep, John goes to the torture chamber and looks around. He finds a necklace bearing the letter "C," for Cindy. The lights blink.

John tries to wake June, but she stays asleep. The walls groan loudly. He climbs toward the exit hatch and hears a woman's voice outside.

John goes above ground in a gas mask and hazmat suit. He finds Teddy's skeleton and Dakota, who is now a burnt, immobile walker. He stabs her in the head, then sees Cindy's ghost. "Help me," Cindy says, grabbing him. June exits the hatch and shoots Cindy. John realizes Cindy was actually a walker. They spot three figures in gas masks and race back underground, locking the hatch.

John tells June he went above ground because he heard Cindy's voice. June wonders if he hit his head.

John asks June if they have extra whiskey. June realizes John is an alcoholic. They hear loud thumping above ground. Over the radio, a man orders them to open the hatch. June turns off the radio, then warns John that he will be going through some severe withdrawal symptoms.

June shores up the ceiling. John hears a voice coming from the torture chamber.

John wanders back to the torture chamber and sees Cindy's ghost. She tells him to find her body. June discovers John in the torture chamber and warns that being there doesn't help him. The ceiling groans. John asks if June checked the radio, but June insists the ceiling will hold.

June boards up the entrance to the torture chamber and tells John to get some sleep.

John wakes up drenched in sweat. Cindy's ghost tells him to find her. June wakes up to find John prying the boards off the entrance to the torture chamber. June sedates him. The wall caves in, burying them in beams and knocking them unconscious.

The strangers' voices come over the radio, saying this is their final warning. John wakes up and sees June lying unconscious. Cindy's ghost convinces him to find her body instead of helping June.

John goes into the chamber and tries to figure out where Teddy hid Cindy's body. June calls out for him. He ignores her. John guesses Cindy was on her way to see her boyfriend when Teddy abducted her. He finds her boyfriend's house on a map and tells June he's going to find Cindy's body. June warns him it's too risky. John confronts her about the actual dangers of radiation exposure. June admits she invented the daily countdown because she's afraid to abandon their life in the bunker. John leaves to find Cindy's body and says he'll come back for June.

John exits the hatch and sees the three figures digging up a second hatch nearby. They finally open the hatch. John shoots at them and kills two of the figures, but the third one descends into the hatch.

June sees the figure enter the bunker.

John races towards the hatch and trips. He sees the ghosts of Teddy's victims then realizes he's just looking at walkers.

The masked figure looks for June in the bunker.

John starts killing the walkers.

The man finds June and aims his gun. John kills him, then frees June from a fallen beam. A piece of wall falls down, revealing Cindy's body behind it. John returns the necklace to Cindy. The ceiling groans. They suit up and race toward the hatch, but the bunker caves in and buries them in dirt.

John wakes up in a bedroom at Strand's tower. June says they were rescued after someone heard his radio messages. Strand checks in on John. John refuses to join Strand after he tried to kill Morgan. Strand says they don't have a choice. John asks who the strangers in the gas masks were. Strand says John can help him figure that out. He pours drinks and toasts to their future. John declines his drink. After Strand leaves, June shows John a large horde of walkers surrounding the tower. She says that escaping isn't even an option.

Morgan searches for June and John at the bunker after hearing John on the radio. Strand radios Morgan and says June and John are safely with him. He says Morgan failed as a leader and that he will now help people his way. Morgan vows to kill Strand if he finds out that Strand is hurting his friends.

"The Portrait"[]

June examines Mo. Morgan accuses June of siding with Strand, but June defends her decision. She reports that Mo has a double ear infection and says it will take 36 to 48 hours to know if the antibiotics are working.

John Sr. aims his rifle at the Stalkers, but warns that shooting them would cause a massive explosion. Morgan offers to radio Grace for help, but Strand says there are no radios in the tower. Morgan implores Strand to relay a message to the armory, where the walkies are located. Strand reluctantly agrees. Howard tries to radio the armory, but the line has been severed. Arno flings another walker at the tower as a warning after spotting John Sr.'s gun. Strand vomits blue liquid. June realizes he was indeed poisoned.

Strand wakes up almost fully recovered from the poisoning and finds June and Morgan at his side.

"Follow Me"[]

"Sonny Boy"[]

"Divine Providence"[]

Strand reveals that he locked June, Grace and Wendell on the top floor after the escape of baby Mo. With Wes taking over the Tower, Strand and Alicia plan to enlist their help to save the rest of Morgan's Group. After Strand kills Wes, Daniel is sent to free June, Grace and Wendell while Strand and Alicia go to shut off the lighthouse beacon that's drawing in radioactive walkers from the crater.

Outside, Dwight puts down a walker that is drawn to the Tower by the beacon. Dwight is worried since Alicia should've been out by now and Luciana points out that they can't wait much longer with Sarah agreeing that as long as the beacon is on, walkers will be on them. Sherry notices that someone is coming as Daniel arrives with June, Grace and Wendell. An emotional Sarah reunites with her brother for the first time in months and Dwight and Jacob question what's going on inside of the Tower and how the four got past the Rangers. Daniel tells everyone that while he doesn't have time to explain, they all need to get back inside of the Tower immediately. Grace asks about Morgan, but Sherry reassures her that Morgan had followed Grace's request and took Mo somewhere safe, but they don't know where.

Daniel warns everyone that they need to hurry as the beacon light is drawing the dead from the crater to the Tower. In Spanish, Luciana asks if he's sure and Daniel confirms it, telling Luciana rather pointedly that he's not a liar. Dwight asks how far they are, but Daniel isn't sure, revealing that Alicia and Strand are turning the light off as they speak. "Vic and AC are on the same team? What the hell did we miss?" quips Sarah. Daniel begins leading everyone inside of the Tower and brushes off June's attempts to patch him up, wanting her to tend to Charlie first. Daniel explains to a confused Luciana in Spanish that Strand had tried to convince him that Charlie is Ofelia, continuing what Luciana had started. Luciana apologizes for her actions, and a confused Daniel asks why she did it. Luciana admits that she thought that it was the only way before three Rangers open fire from the roof, killing two members of the group and sending the rest ducking for cover behind the platform. The group desperately returns fire as Wendell notices the herd approaching and he realizes that the Rangers are trying to box them out, forcing them to move out of cover.

On the roof, Strand kills two of the Rangers from behind while Alicia kills the third, ending the gunfire from the roof. Strand and Alicia notice five Rangers below charging at their friends and Strand guesses that the Rangers guarding the tunnel must've circled around. Knowing that the others are sitting ducks and seeing that the walkers are almost here, Alicia orders Strand to turn off the light while she gives the others as much cover as she can. Alicia shoots the five Rangers, but Strand hesitates to turn off the light. Strand realizes that Alicia is never going to forgive him, that even if Strand turns it off and helps Alicia to save everyone, the damage has already been done.

Stating that they don't have time for this, Alicia charges Strand, but he throws her into a cable, severing it and damaging the light. Strand angrily states that it was never going to be enough to make Alicia love him, but Alicia tells him that it could've been, but Strand ruined it by killing Wes. An emotional Strand insists that he didn't have a choice, but Alicia angrily accuses him of always having a choice and making the wrong ones. Although Strand tells her that he had killed Wes to save her life, Alicia believes that Strand was only trying to save himself and he didn't care who he had to kill to do it. Alicia kicks Strand backwards and struggles with him, telling Strand that "the person you used to be -- the person you said you wanted to forget -- that was never you!" In the struggle, Alicia punctures a gas can with the blades on her prosthetic arm and breaks another cable in the process, sending the antenna falling and shattering the light. The herd arrives, devouring a few members of Morgan's group as the rest rush inside of the Tower and barricade the doors against the radioactive walkers, watching them through the glass in horror.

Alicia climbs the platform holding the light with her transmitter and she hooks it up to the antenna. A despondent Strand tells Alicia that it's too late and there's no way out of here, but she ignores him. Stating that there's one, Alicia begins her broadcast. "This is Alicia Clark. If you're listening to this, you're not alone. The place you've been looking for, the place you've heard about, PADRE, it's here -- the Tower. Coordinates 29 degrees, 20 minutes, 14.1 seconds north, 94 degrees, 59 minutes, 25.7 seconds west. We're gonna build the new home you've been looking for. We can help you. But first... we're gonna need a little help from you." Sparks from the broken light suddenly set the spilled fuel on fire and it quickly spreads. Strand warns Alicia that the fire is going to spread through the whole building, but Alicia passes out as the fire spreads across the roof and Strand calls out for her.

"Amina"[]

A massive number of gas mask covered and frantic survivors carrying supplies make their way through the Texas landscape. Barely conscious and extremely feverish, Alicia is carried on a stretcher by Dwight and June and experiences flashbacks of various walkers attacking before passing out again.

On a beach, Alicia notices a bird landing next to her stretcher and Jacob Kessner alerts everyone else that she's waking up. June warns Alicia not to stand up as she's low on fluids and febrile, but Alicia ignores her orders, so June sends Jacob to get saline and the epinephrine. Alicia notices the frantic survivors prepping the rafts, and June explains that Strand's Tower is burning and Alicia notices a large cloud of smoke rising in the distance. "The walkers from the Crater -- when they breach those walls, when they burn, everything's gonna be released into the air," meaning that Texas is going to be flooded with all of the radiation stored within the radioactive walkers, rendering Texas completely uninhabitable. The group doesn't know where they're going yet, and Morgan hasn't made landfall himself yet either. Knowing that it could be just as dangerous out there, Alicia gets up. June warns her that if they can't get it under control, the fever could kill Alicia, but Alicia reminds June that it's been like this for months. Strand isn't with them as he didn't want to come with the group and, as far as they know, he's still in the Tower. As Alicia looks around, Jacob brings over the packed med kit in which he has included adrenaline in case Alicia needs it.

Alicia notices the young girl that she had encountered before nearby and guesses that she heard the message that Alicia had sent out. However, when Alicia gets to where she had seen the little girl, she's gone. The little girl catches Alicia's attention again and tells Alicia that she needs to find her friend who is out there somewhere. The girl asks Alicia to help her find him as her friend knows how to get to PADRE. The girl runs off towards the Tower and, after a moment's hesitation, Alicia follows her.

Alicia awakens on a stretcher carried by Sarah, June, Luciana, Dwight and Daniel. Luciana explains that they wouldn't leave her behind and the four put down the stretcher at Alicia's request. Dwight explains that they had heard her SOS and Josiah LaRoux introduces himself, with Sarah explaining that Josiah is a friendly who got to Alicia before they did. "Good thing, too, or you'd be part of that herd." Alicia sees no sign of the little girl, mentioning that she can help them find PADRE, surprising Sarah that Alicia actually found her. Alicia tells them that the little girl had radioed them for help, but Luciana reveals that it was Alicia herself who had radioed them, and she points out that they don't even know if PADRE is real. Although Alicia believes that the little girl had helped kill the walkers, Dwight asks if she's sure about that and he points out the blood on Alicia's arm blades as proof that she had killed them herself.

Alicia insists that the little girl was there and that she had saved her twice while the blood is from before. June notices that Alicia is still burning up and Alicia admits that she had taken the adrenaline shot and that the little girl is real, but Josiah informs Alicia that she was alone when he found her. Alicia guesses that the little girl must've gone back to the Tower in order to send a message to find her friend that can help them find PADRE. Alicia insists upon going back to the Tower, but her friends are dubious, wanting to bring her back to the rafts. "I get it. I do. I would be doing the same thing if I were you, but... I'm not leaving without her." Dwight points out that they don't even know if the little girl is real, and Luciana asks why saving the little girl is so important to her. Alicia believes that it's not just how she's going to save her friends, but how she's going to save herself too.

June believes that going back to the rafts is Alicia's best shot, but Alicia reveals that the little girl got bit and she survived because her friend helped her. However, Luciana has seen someone tell the exact same lie before, and Alicia admits that she's been dreaming for months about dying and turning into a walker. Alicia doesn't want to die and turn into a walker, and she's convinced that the little girl can help her to live. June suggests that Alicia is just seeing the little girl because she wants to, but while Alicia knows how it sounds, she's convinced that the little girl is real. Daniel notes that when people doubted him, it didn't feel good, and Sarah points out that Daniel wasn't operating with all of his faculties, causing Daniel to joke that he might still be not. "Alicia helped me to see things more clearly. And I can't leave her to try to do this on her own. So, I'm coming with you," declares Daniel. Telling Daniel that she owes him one, Luciana agrees to help too, with June agreeing that Alicia will clear the tunnel faster with help and Dwight commenting that Sherry will kill him if he lets Alicia go alone. Commenting that she doesn't want to be the only asshole who said no, Sarah agrees to help, and she pulls Josiah in too.

Near the tunnel entrance, Alicia tries to raise the little girl on the radio while her friends work to clear the tunnel. Alicia doubts herself about the girl being real for a moment before the girl answers her. The girl reports that she's moving up the stairs and that she thinks that she can get to the roof from here. Alicia orders the girl to stay where she is as it's too dangerous to do this on her own, reporting that she's coming, and her friends are clearing the tunnel for her. Before the transmission breaks up, the girl tells Alicia that, once she's through the tunnel, the stairs are clear. Taking her single bullet, Alicia loads her gun in preparation for what's coming.

Luciana reports to her that they've cleared a path through the tunnel and, if the girl is in the Tower, they can get to her. Alicia tells Luciana that the girl is, Alicia talked to her, and she's going in after her. June and Sarah refuse to let Alicia go in alone, while Josiah reports that although they opened the tunnel up pretty good, they can't be sure that it'll be stable for long. Addressing her friends, Alicia orders them to get back to the rafts and prepare to leave, promising to radio them if she learns where PADRE is. Alicia tells Dwight that Sherry needs him, Sarah just found her brother, Daniel has to be there for Charlie, and Luciana has to show Arno's people the way while Alicia has to do this on her own. Reluctantly accepting this, Luciana promises to see Alicia and the girl at the shore and Alicia dons her gas mask and enters the tunnel.

As everyone gets the rafts ready for departure, a deeply concerned Luciana looks towards the burning Tower for Alicia. June orders everyone not to leave anything behind as they don't know how long they're going to be out there. Charlie looks around worriedly as Daniel comforts her and Josiah throws his stuff into a raft. June tells Luciana that they're ready and they can't miss the tide, reassuring Luciana that Alicia will catch up, but they can't be here when the radioactive walkers burn. Luciana reluctantly orders everyone into the rafts as they're shoving off, before a weak Alicia suddenly radios in, needing help. Alicia reveals that they're in the SWAT van, but they need help getting the rest of the way and Luciana promises to meet them there. Alicia admits that she found the little girl, but she found someone else too.

Alicia passes out again and she wakes up in a raft on the beach. June tells Alicia not to move, that the fever's still rising, and they have her on fluids and will try to make this raft as comfortable as they can. Grace reports that they need to move now as radiation readings are spiking and the walkers must've breached the fence. Alicia asks Grace if she's heard from Morgan. Grace reveals that the current took him in a different direction, but Morgan cleared the radiation. Alicia asks Grace to give Morgan a message for her, but Grace hands Alicia a radio and tells her that she can tell Morgan herself as Morgan had wanted to talk to Alicia too.

Alicia contacts Morgan, still floating on the ocean in his life raft and holding Mo, and apologizes to him for not doing what she said with the Tower. However, Morgan tells Alicia that she got everybody onto the rafts which is what matters. Also, Morgan thinks that Alicia might be right: he's been hearing some chatter on the radio that Morgan thinks might be PADRE. Morgan thinks that PADRE is real and that they might actually have some place to go to. Concerned, Morgan asks Alicia how she's feeling. Alicia tells Morgan that, no matter what happens to her, he needs to know that he won't be doing this alone. Morgan states that he won't be doing this alone because Alicia's going to be alright, but he loses contact with Alicia. Grace promises Alicia that if Morgan didn't hear her response, she'll make sure that he knows.

As the raft that she's on is dragged by, Charlie calls for it to stop and approaches Alicia who apologizes that she wasn't able to stop this from happening to her while Charlie is sorry that she wasn't there for Alicia either. Alicia tells the dying girl that Daniel's going to look after her, and Charlie tells Alicia that it's okay because Charlie finally got to do something that she never thought that she would and they finally got to see a beach. Daniel calls Charlie back to the raft and tells Alicia that he wasn't there for Ofelia at the end, but he will be there for Charlie. Daniel tells Alicia that he will see her again and leaves before Sherry thanks Alicia for taking Sherry and Dwight in like she did as they might not have made it this far without Alicia. Luciana tells Alicia that, if she didn't have to look after everyone else, she would be in the raft with Alicia, but Alicia tells Luciana that it's too dangerous and she has to do this alone.

However, Strand joins Alicia telling her that she won't have to do it alone. Strand jokes that while the raft might not be The Abigail, they can rough it out together. Against Strand's protests, Alicia climbs out of the raft telling Strand that she doesn't know much longer she has left or how fast she'll turn. While Strand is willing to take that chance, Alicia isn't. It's now up to Strand to make sure that everything they've been through means something. An emotional Strand refuses to go, but Alicia insists that he has to while people may have heard her message and are heading to the Tower. "You did make it mean something. You saved all of them. You saved me. You did what I asked you to do back at Lawton," Strand tearfully tells Alicia. Alicia pushes Strand's raft into the water and tells her old friend that she didn't just save him so that Strand could do what Alicia couldn't, Alicia did it because she loves him too. Alicia watches as the rafts leave, sharing a final wave with Strand. Falling to her knees as the rafts move out of sight, Alicia grabs her gun, but she passes out again before she can use it.

Season 8[]

"Blue Jay"[]

In her hideout near PADRE, June prepares her medical supplies and a tranquilizer rifle and puts up signs warning anyone coming to "turn back or PADRE will take your children," "PADRE is a lie turn back," and "collection route ahead stay away." As June wanders, she puts down a passing walker and notices that someone has added to one of her signs "they took my daughter please help." Over the radio, a woman and a man called Warbler discuss the man being ten minutes out while the woman has a lead on an egg, another child that PADRE can kidnap, noting that it might be a whole nest. Watching a PADRE boat approaching in the nearby waterway through her binoculars, June shoots both of the occupants with her tranquilizer rifle as they go to beach the boat. June slices off the index finger of Warbler and his companion and cauterizes the stumps before she shoves the boat back into the water.

Returning to her hideout, June adds the guns that she stole from the two Collectors to an already impressive hidden arsenal of stolen guns. June puts the severed finger in a jar of similar severed fingers as Warbler wakes up and calls in the attack over the radio as his companion screams in the background. The woman chides Warbler for not being ready for the attack as June has been at it for years. Warbler angrily states that he's going to cut off both of June's hands in revenge when he finds her.

Returning to the shore, June finds another one of her signs altered asking who she is and where they can find her. June nervously looks around for the person responsible, staring in particular at a nearby sign for the Coastal Railroad Museum, before PADRE 3 calls in about a successful rescue. Moving on, June ambushes the guards on their way to PADRE 3 and cuts off their fingers as well.

As June adds the fingers to her collection, a man enters her hideout asking to talk and June holds him at gunpoint. The man admits that he followed June and that he's the one who's been writing on June's signs, introducing himself as Adrian. June angrily refuses to help Adrian who explains that he needs her help to find his daughter Hannah who was taken from him nearby by Collectors years before. Although June insists that she doesn't know his daughter, Adrian knows that she knows PADRE from June's signs and her jar full of severed fingers and he believes that she can help him. June orders Adrian to get out, stating that she doesn't want to get to know him or anyone else anymore. Adrian realizes that PADRE did something to June and asks if they took her kid or made June take kids for them.

Refusing to give up despite June's order to leave and not come back, Adrian shows June a picture of Hannah that was taken five years ago when she was seven. Adrian reveals that he and Hannah have matching bracelets that she had made for them both. Softening her tone but refusing to give in, June orders him to leave again, but Adrian leaves the picture and promises to return every day, revealing that there are a lot of like-minded people who would help June with what she is doing. The group that Adrian is a part of is forming an army to take on PADRE which June could be a part of. Moving closer, she threatens to kill Adrian if he ever returns, but Adrian knows that she's just trying to scare him off and asks why. June sadly offers Adrian a piece of advice "if PADRE has had your daughter this long, you're not getting her back," adding that PADRE uses the people you care about the most against you when Adrian asks her why. Adrian refuses to give up regardless of June's warning and states that she can either kill him or help him. June forces Adrian out of her hideout, but Adrian reiterates that he's not giving up, his people know who June is now and they will be back. As Adrian leaves, June stares sadly at the picture of Hannah that he left behind.

That night, after finally pulling herself together, June begins packing up her belongings to leave due to her hideout being compromised. The next day, June tranquilizes three people in a passing PADRE boat. However, one falls overboard and drowns, forcing June to stab him in the head to keep him from reanimating after checking the man's pulse. As June goes to cut off the fingers of the other two, she notices that one's face is scarred and is shocked to discover that they're actually Dwight and Sherry. Armed with June's tranquilizer rifle, a young boy confronts her, and June apologizes as she didn't know that there were kids onboard. The boy explains that he hid under the tarp when June shot the adults and takes Sherry's radio to call the attack in, revealing his name to be Finch. Finch reports that June killed Whistler while Red Kite and Starling have only been knocked out. As Finch goes to report their location, June grabs the gun and the radio from him, but the gun goes off in the process, puncturing the rubber hull of the boat.

Finch sits down, holding his side in obvious pain, as Dwight and Sherry regain consciousness and recognize their old friend. Finch explains that June had shot them with the darts and was trying to steal the boat while Sherry is shocked that June is the one who has been cutting people's fingers off. Dwight takes June's kit from her and questions her actions while Finch is confused by the use of Dwight's real name and that June used to work for PADRE. However, June refuses to answer their questions. Stating that they don't have time for another boat, Dwight asks June for help, revealing that they think that Finch has appendicitis and he needs surgery. June tells Dwight and Sherry to take the boy to the clinic, but Sherry states that they were doing that when June ambushed them.

Over the radio, a man reports to Finch that they've sent a patrol out and Finch tells Dwight to tell PADRE where they are. As Sherry tends to the boy, Dwight refuses, telling him that June will do the surgery as she was a nurse. June refuses, ordering them to go to the clinic where someone can help them, but Sherry points out that the clinic is 20 miles away and Finch's appendix could burst by the time that they arrive on foot. However, June doesn't have what she needs in her kit to do an appendectomy. Dwight threatens to tell Padre who has been cutting off all of his Collectors' fingers if she doesn't, but June just wants to leave as it's not safe for her here. With Finch experiencing more pain, Sherry has him move away so that June and Dwight can talk to each other alone and Dwight hands the boy an oar with a sharpened handle, reminding Finch how he taught the boy to aim for the eyes if he encounters any walkers.

Left alone, June questions why the couple is forcing her to do this while they want to know why they have to force her to help them in the first place and what happened to her. Sherry offers June a deal: do the surgery and she and Dwight will get June a boat and she can go wherever she wants and Dwight and Sherry will keep her secret. Looking at Finch, June finally puts the pieces together. "That's your kid, isn't it? The one you were pregnant with when they found us on the rafts." Their reaction confirms June's suspicion and Sherry admits that June's right, explaining that Padre doesn't know that Dwight's the father. Dwight now teaches all of the kids combat training while Sherry works in the nursery and Finch has no idea that they're his parents. Although Padre would never let her spend time with her own kid, Sherry got in the boat by lying and getting herself reassigned. Dwight and Sherry have been following Padre's rules and, as a result, they haven't spent time together in years. The couple wanted to make sure that their son will be alright before taking Finch back with no one ever knowing what they did. Sympathetic, June finally agrees to do the surgery, admitting that she knows a place. However, she will not answer their questions and they must hold up their end of the deal and get her a boat which they promise to do.

That night, June leads Dwight, Sherry and Finch to an abandoned lab in a train. All of the equipment is covered in dust, there are notes on radiation safety and a severed walker head is mounted on an extension device. Dwight and Sherry are skeptical of the lab's safety, but June simply puts down the head and states that it's safe now. June powers up the lab and preps Finch for surgery as his parents reassure Finch and joke with him. As Sherry retrieves supplies for June, she notices an open file documenting experiments upon bite victims that were performed on the train with at least 78 trials. The notes one particular patient talks about increased aggression, biting off his own tongue, seizures, loss of hair and teeth, paralysis and eventually death and turning into a walker while the pictures show the bite marks, hair loss and lesions forming on his back near the bite mark. Calling June and Dwight over, Sherry demands answers from her and although June reiterates her refusal to answer any questions, both Dwight and Sherry refuse to proceed without her giving them something.

Adrian enters the train and holds the three at gunpoint, mistaking their intentions with Finch and, believing Dwight and Sherry to be Collectors, demanding answers from them about Hannah. Dwight and Sherry offer to help Adrian and Dwight tells the desperate father that PADRE hasn't lost a kid yet and, as the person who trains them to protect themselves, Dwight might be able to tell him something if Adrian can tell Dwight what his daughter looks like. A man calls Adrian for his location and Dwight takes advantage of the distraction to disarm him. However, the gun goes off in the process, knocking out power to the train and drawing in a nearby herd. As Sherry tends to a worsening Finch, Dwight smashes Adrian's radio as Adrian warns him that there a lot of people in Adrian's group and they will do anything to keep PADRE from hurting anymore kids. Dwight angrily explains that they brought Finch here to save his life while June reveals that the control panel has been hit and she can't do the surgery without power. Dwight agrees to hit an emergency override located at the back of the train to restore power while Sherry covers Adrian.

June stops Dwight from passing through the train itself to get to the back, revealing that it's full of the undead. June finally reveals that she used to work there and that it was an off-the-books operation as Padre didn't want anyone to know about it. Shrike was performing experiments to try to find a way to stop the infection from the walker bites. Although it's supposedly impossible, Shrike thought that it could be done, and her idea was to use radiation which is slow, painful and worse than dying from the bites. Shrike tried to force June to administer treatment, but June refused so she ran. As Finch cries out in increasing agony, Sherry states that they have no choice but to get the back of the train and they can't go around with the herd outside. However, Dwight comes up with the idea of climbing over the roof of the train instead.

June holds Adrian at gunpoint as Dwight and Sherry go to hit the override and he apologizes for his actions. June reminds Adrian that she had warned him away, but Adrian is glad that he didn't listen as he wouldn't have seen the lab otherwise which has shown Adrian that June knows even more about PADRE than she let on before. June insists that she can't help Adrian, but Adrian thinks that she just won't and informs June that her attacks are barely even slowing PADRE down, let alone stopping them. Adrian urges June to do something by helping him find his daughter or by getting Finch out before Dwight and Sherry come back and take Finch back to PADRE. June again refuses and Adrian points out that she's afraid and reminds June that she had told him that PADRE uses the people that you care about against you, and you can't run away from that. Adrian is truly sorry for whatever PADRE did to her, but June if lets that stop her from getting close to people again, he wonders what June is living for. Dwight and Sherry succeed in restoring the power before she can answer him and June warns Dwight that, while Finch is still asleep, the medication won't last for much longer.

However, on their way back, the train's roof gives way and Dwight and Sherry fall into a car full of walkers. Dwight uses his last bullets to shoot five of them as he and Sherry climb to safety on top of a shelf. Dwight reports their predicament to June and refuses her help as it's too dangerous with the number of walkers in the car. Dwight tells June that Finch needs her more and begs June to promise him that she will look after Finch if Dwight and Sherry don't survive. After looking at Finch, June decides to go and help instead against the objections of both Dwight and Adrian. June tells Adrian that Dwight and Sherry need to survive for Finch, but Adrian accuses her of only being afraid of being left to raise Finch. June warns Adrian not to follow her and moves deeper into the train.

June slowly passes through a car full of severed walker heads in jars and more walkers chained to the walls, the lab's test subjects. An emotional June apologizes to the walkers as makes her through the car. June struggles with the padlock on the door at the other end as the walkers become agitated and begin straining against their bonds. Six walkers break free and June shoots three of them before being knocked to the ground, losing her gun in the process. As June struggles to hold back the last three walkers, Adrian appears and puts them down with a knife, saving her life. Adrian wryly notes that it's a good thing that he didn't listen to her and that they're a lot alike. The only difference is that Adrian still has someone to live for while June needs to find hers. Adrian reminds June that there are more people like them and together, they can take down PADRE. However, June again refuses to help Adrian, but Adrian tells her that he's not doing this for himself, he's doing it for Hannah. Adrian is going to find her with or without June's help and when he does, Adrian wants Hannah to see that her father isn't the man PADRE says he is.

Having woken up, Finch insists upon coming with them over June's objections, having been taught how to handle walkers by Dwight. With Adrian's agreement, June reluctantly concedes. In the car where Dwight and Sherry are trapped, June shoots three of the walkers trying to reach the couple while Finch puts down a fourth with his oar, which Dwight praises, as June and Adrian finish off the last two. Finch is excited to tell Padre how he fought the walkers, but Dwight and Sherry explain that they're not going back to PADRE as they want what's best for him, which is not on the island, confusing the boy. Dwight finally reveals the truth that they're Finch's parents and Sherry promises that they will figure it out as a family. Finch doubles over in pain and June begins leading the family back to the operating room.

As the others begin to leave, Adrian notices a walker in the window to the next car and, in despair, recognizes it as his daughter Hannah. Adrian furiously attacks June, realizing that she knew all along and that that's why June wouldn't tell him. June finally admits the truth: she treated Hannah for asthma when she first came to PADRE, and she was just a scared kid who missed her dad. Hannah reminded June of her own daughter Rose and June wanted to take care of her and make her feel safe. June thought that she was until Hannah went on a scouting run off of the island and got bitten on her back where June couldn't amputate, but she had to do something to save her. To the shock of everyone, June reveals that the treatment wasn't Shrike's, it was June's. June explains that "I saw someone survive a bite longer than anyone I had ever seen, and she had been exposed to radiation, so I thought if it worked for her, it could work for Hannah. I gave her radiotherapy with equipment that we scavenged from a hospital. It stopped the infection. But the amount of radiation that it took... just made things worse for her and I wanted to end her suffering." However, Shrike wouldn't let June do it as she wanted to let Hannah turn so that Shrike could continue studying her and see how long it took for her to turn. Adrian accuses June of letting Shrike do it, but June tearfully explains that she didn't have a choice: Shrike held a gun on her and told June that as long as her finger was on the trigger, June had to keep the experiments going or other people would pay the price. This whole place happened because June tried to save someone that she cares about, and PADRE made sure that other people suffered as a result so June took Shrike's trigger finger to make sure that she couldn't do to anyone else what she did to June. June knew that PADRE couldn't do the experiments without her, meaning that as long as June stayed away from the lab and other people, no one else she cared about could get hurt.

Releasing June, Adrian tearfully tells her that Hannah is all that he had left, and he understands now why she wanted to be alone. As everyone watches, Adrian makes his way to the next car and holds his hand against the window for a moment before going inside. June tries to stop Adrian as Dwight and Sherry shield their son from the view. Adrian embraces Hannah and lays down on the ground, allowing Hannah and three other walkers to devour him.

In the operating room, June finishes stitching up Finch after successfully removing his appendix. June reports that Finch is stable, and he should be awake soon. Dwight promises to uphold his end of the deal and arrange for a boat for June, but when it arrives, he and Sherry want them all to get on it together. June reminds Dwight that they agreed that she would leave alone, but Sherry tells her that things have changed, and she and Dwight want to take their son away from this place when he wakes up with Dwight adding that they're going to try and be a family. Dwight and Sherry consider June to be family and they know what happened to her and they understand why June left and has been out here on her own, but they can't let her end up like Adrian: someone who doesn't have anybody to live for. Dwight wouldn't be here if it wasn't for June and John and he has a family because of that and Dwight wants June to be a part of it if she wants to be. June tearfully agrees, noting that Adrian had saved her so that she could find someone to live for. First though, June needs to go put Hannah and Adrian to rest as they have both suffered enough already.

However, armed PADRE guards and Shrike enter through both doors to the train, having presumably either led the herd outside away or eliminated it. Greeting June as Blue Jay, Shrike has one of her men knock June unconscious. June wakes up laying on a table and, showing June her missing left index finger, Shrike explains that they had figured that June was responsible when Collectors had started showing up on the island missing their trigger fingers as no one else could be that precise. After hearing that a transport got hit with a kid who needed surgery onboard, Shrike knew they'd come to the lab. Dwight demands to know what's going on and Shrike guesses that June told them what the lab used to be and how much promise it had. Sherry accuses Shrike of murdering people, but Shrike insists that they never killed anyone. Rather, this place was about saving lives and protecting PADRE's future. Shrike points out that Dwight was the one who lied to Padre about what he was doing that day, but Dwight argues that he brought Finch here to keep him safe from people like Shrike.

Shrike insists that "no one wants these children safe more than Padre. That is why this place is so important. What we were doing here could've protected these children from carrion. Can you imagine? But Blue Jay ran off before she could perfect the cure." June points out that whoever they tried it on died, but Shrike has faith that June will get it right this time. Shrike reveals that Padre has something big and expansive planned and he wants the children to be as safe as possible and June has to pick up where she left off. June refuses, but Shrike states that she just needs a little motivation. As one of the guards moves June, another one carries in Adrian's severed zombified head. As Dwight and Sherry angrily protest and plead, the guard attaches the head to the extension device and Shrike uses it to have Adrian bite the still unconscious Finch in the left shoulder. Dwight swears that he's going to kill Shrike, but she smugly states that she and June are the only ones who can save Finch's life. Shrike has a sobbing Sherry and Dwight, who is still spewing death threats at her, dragged away. Shrike instructs June to get to work, stating that she has a lot to catch up on and they have new patients on their way at this very moment. First, in order to make sure that June can never hurt PADRE ever again, Shrike cuts off her trigger finger.

"Odessa"[]

Madison awakens tied to the operating table in the train lab with a hooded walker head growling at her from the extension device. A guard notices that she's awake and apologizes for the sedative, telling Madison that it's easier that way. Madison questions how long she is going to be kept her, and the guard reveals that PADRE has gone beyond studying her blood, but it will be easier for Blue Jay to explain that. Two more guards lead June in and Madison recognizes her as Naomi, which June states was a long time ago. The guard is surprised that Madison and June know each other which Shrike didn't mention. Stating that Padre wants her back at the island, the guard orders June to get Madison ready.

Left alone, Madison accuses June of being a part of PADRE too and the one who had her blood drawn for years, but June explains that she wasn't responsible for the blood draws, and that she isn't working for PADRE by choice. June had thought that Madison was dead until Shrike just gave her Madison's records. Madison asks what is going to happen next and June reluctantly explains that, although June had done everything that she could to put Shrike off, Shrike has ideas on how to heal walker bites based on Alicia surviving a walker bite for as long as she did. Looking at the walker head, Madison realizes that Shrike wants to test it on her. June suggests that that's why Shrike was collecting Madison's blood: she thinks that Alicia's survival was due to more than the radiation, that there was something genetic that Madison, as her mother, might also share. June admits that anything's possible, but Finch seems to be responding to the radiation, although it hasn't even been a week since he was bitten. If June doesn't do this, Shrike will, and Madison's chances of the cure working are better with June.

After a moment, Madison asks June to find a file on the island containing the real names and where they were taken of the kids that Madison had kidnapped and keep Madison's promise to Mo to track down their parents. However, June is reluctant as every good thing that's she's tried to do at PADRE has blown up in her face which Madison knows all too well personally. Shrike arrives, interrupting their conversation and, recalling that she left Madison once at the stadium and Madison had saved them all, June refuses to leave her again and promises to be right beside Madison until the end.

Shrike uncovers the walker head and tells Madison that she this is how she can make up for betraying Padre after everything that he gave her. Madison won't be alone either as Morgan will be right next to her as soon as they can find him. Madison asks why Padre is doing this and Shrike tells her that it's for the same reason that he does everything: "to ensure what he's built endures." Shrike tells Madison that years in the future, when people look back and wonder how Padre was able to stop infections from walker bites from killing people, they'll remember today, and Madison will be a hero.

Shrike begins to use the walker head to bite Madison, refusing to allow June to sedate her due to all of the pain that Madison has brought to Padre. Just before the head can bite Madison, Mo boards the train and unplugs the extension device, demanding that Shrike let Madison go. The guards rush to restrain Mo, but June takes advantage of the distraction to grab Shrike's gun and pistol-whip her unconscious before she can call for help. Grabbing a pair of scissors, June puts down the walker head and cuts Madison free before opening fire on the guards as Mo knocks one away with her sledgehammer. Madison and Mo take cover as June exchanges fire with the guards. Mo wants to continue with Madison's plan and to enlist Morgan's help, but Madison informs her that Morgan can't help them right now and, until he's back, they're on their own. June eventually manages to kill both guards and Mo tells Madison that they just need to get through to the Prefects the way that Madison got through to her. If they do that, the other kids will follow. Madison warns Mo that it won't be easy while June provides Madison with an oxygen tank to help her breathe.

Shrike begins to wake up as a Prefect reports that they're done for the day and are heading back to the island. Madison kicks the radio away before Shrike can reach it, but it lands at Dove's feet. Dove holds them at gunpoint as Shrike instructs her to call the Prefect for more guards, but Mo protests, revealing that Shrike was going to kill Madison. Dove thinks that Madison deserved it, and Mo asks if Finch did too. Shrike orders Dove not to listen to her, but Dove hesitates. Mo asks if Shrike had killed Finch, but Shrike claims to have saved Finch's life. June reveals that Shrike is the reason that Finch got bit while Shrike states that Finch is somewhere where his parents can't do him anymore harm. Shocked to hear that Finch got bit and seeing the walker head on the extension device, Dove demands answers from Shrike who insists that she's protecting what Padre has built and she's ensuring that the kids have a future. Madison asks if that's what this setup looks like to Dove who continues to hesitate as the Prefect asks for her location.

Shrike orders Dove to tell the Prefect where to find them and to come, but Madison tells her not to do it, reminding Dove that if Padre lied to her about this, he's likely lied to her about other things as well. Dove's parents could still be out there, and Madison can help her to find them, but Dove doesn't want to find her parents as she believes that they had abandoned her and couldn't take care of her. However, Madison knows that that's not true because she's the one who took Dove away from her parents. Madison doesn't know who they were or where she took Dove from, but she knows Dove's face. Shrike insists that Madison is just trying to trick her while Madison insists that the only one tricking Dove is Padre with June adding that Madison is right, and Padre had kept all of this a secret so that none of the kids would know. Madison believes that they can change that if they can get to the island and the file containing all of the names of the kids that she took and where she took them from. That's how Madison can help Dove and all of the other kids that Padre has taken. Dove finally agrees to help them get back to the island as, while she doesn't care what's in the file, she wants to hear the truth from Padre himself. They can get past the guards if Shrike helps them with Dove making it clear at gunpoint that Shrike has no other choice. Shrike warns that if Dove kills her, Padre will do way worse than Shrike had planned to do to Madison today because Shrike is actually Padre's daughter. The group is shocked at this revelation.

The group emerges from the train and Shrike warns Dove that she's making a big mistake and whatever Dove wants, it's not what she thinks. Diane and an armed group of adults surround them, demanding answers. Madison recognizes Diane, although she can't place where from, and she recognizes a man with her as someone who had been living in an auto yard running out of food with a baby that he couldn't feed and a woman as someone who had a sick son that she thought had pneumonia. Madison realizes that the group is made up of parents whose children have all been kidnapped by PADRE's Collectors. Diane stares intently at Dove for a moment before asking where their kids and Adrian are. While Madison doesn't know any Adrian, June knows who Diane is talking about and she reveals that Adrian was at the train and that he is dead. Diane tells June that Adrian had just wanted to find his daughter and June sadly admits that Adrian did find Hannah who had died too, a long time ago. Shrike states that Hannah died because of June, but June corrects that it was because of what Shrike made her do.

The group disarms Madison and the others, but Mo tells them that Madison is no longer with Padre, and she can help them to find their kids. Diane is dubious, but Dove tells her that Padre has lied to everyone, and Shrike is his daughter. Together, they might be able to find out what else Padre has lied about. Diane decides to let the Commander decide and the man emerges from behind his group. Madison is shocked to recognize the Commander as her old friend Daniel Salazar whom she hasn't seen in almost 12 years while June is surprised that Daniel is still alive. Diane is surprised that Daniel knows Madison and June and he orders their weapons to be returned to them, wryly noting that "it looks like we all have nine lives" and Madison agrees that they're going to need them.

Walking along the road together, Daniel admits that he had often considered the possibility that Madison was still alive, but he'd never thought that it would be like this. Daniel identifies his drink as Yerba Mate which is good for keeping his mental focus, but Madison rejects his offer of a sip. Madison admits that she's not proud of what she did and who she became, and Madison just wants a chance to make it right. Daniel feels the same way about himself, and he suggests that they can help each other as Daniel's group has been looking for the island for years and, if what Madison says is correct, she's the best and only shot that the group has to get their kids back from Padre.

Daniel explains that seven years before, Morgan had told Padre that his group were out there and they found the rafts and brought everyone to a ship to assess them before deciding where they were going to be sent according to their skills and usefulness. Some people went to the mainland, others went to the island, while others Daniel doesn't know where they went. In Daniel's case, he was thought to be too old to be useful and so Padre's forces dumped him in a swamp. Daniel knows that Padre was right about him being old, but he was wrong about the fact that being old meant being useless as Daniel could take care of himself and so could everyone else in the group except for Charlie. Madison asks what became of Charlie as Morgan didn't get to tell her much before Padre figured out what they were doing and separated them. Daniel sadly explains that Charlie was very sick and that Charlie had become like a daughter to him. Daniel had promised to stay with Charlie until the end so that she wouldn't have to die alone like Ofelia did. Daniel broke his promise, and he wasn't there for Charlie or for Luciana either whom Daniel had also considered to be a daughter. Madison offers her condolences and that of Morgan, sure that he would also be sorry for Daniel's loss. "I had no purpose. And then I found these folks, this angry, desperate group of people in search of their kidnapped children. It motivated me. It gave me a reason to stick around. So, I organized and trained them, turned them into an army. Strong, getting stronger, because there's more of them out there. I lost my family, Madison. But I'm gonna fight with everything I got to help these folks get back to theirs," Daniel explains. Madison suggests that Daniel may not have lost everyone and that he can use Padre's files to find out what had happened to Charlie and Luciana.

As they approach the Prefect transport boat, Dove states that they can use it to get back to the island. Shrike asks if Dove is sure that she wants to go down this road, but Daniel suggests that Shrike start answering some questions instead asking them. Madison asks who else knows that Shrike is Padre's daughter, and she admits that not many people do. Daniel questions why her father separates children from their parents while not doing the same thing himself. Madison calls Padre a hypocrite, but Shrike tells her that the way the island is run and they do things is something that Padre has believed in for a very long time. June demands to know why Padre is sacrificing people for an experiment that will never pay off, but Shrike tells her that, not only will it pay off, but it already is and to look at Finch. Madison questions what happened to Shrike's father to make him build a place such as this, but Dove interrupts as they need to get moving. Diane questions who the girl is and where she came from before she went to PADRE, but Dove admits that she doesn't know. Diane asks if Dove knows her, but she's never seen Diane before in her life.

A group of Prefects led by Hawk emerge from the woods, armed with guns and staffs and demand that they let Shrike go. Madison reveals that Shrike has been lying to them and that she is Padre's daughter while Daniel points out that Padre has been ripping families apart, but he has kept his daughter by his side this whole time which Mo confirms Shrike told them herself. Shrike suggests that he should focus more on getting her out of this and Hawk tells Dove that she and Mo don't have to go along with this anymore, but Dove and Mo are determined to go to the island to get answers from Padre. Although Hawk doesn't think that Dove has any right to question Padre, she has seen too many things today that Padre has to explain for her to just let it go. Hawk is too brainwashed to relent, but Daniel tells him that everyone present has lost their children to Padre and there are more of them, possibly including the parents of Hawk and the others. Hawk believes that their parents abandoned them, but Diane tells him that they didn't, and they have been fighting this whole time to get back to their kids. Daniel offers a visibly shaken Hawk the chance to join his group, but he asks Dove to just hand Shrike over to him. Dove refuses so Hawk goes to radio Padre, prompting Madison to hold a knife to Shrike's throat, knowing that the files will be destroyed if Padre knows that they're coming. Madison reveals that the files tell them who everyone is, where they came from and who their parents are, but Hawk refuses to let them get on the boat. While he's willing to shoot Daniel, Mo challenges Hawk to shoot her. Daniel and Mo order Madison to go while they hold Hawk and the others off, telling her that if Madison can show Dove the truth, the rest of the kids will follow. As the parents, Daniel and Mo form a human blockade against Hawk's group, Madison, June, Dove and Shrike leave for the island on the boat.

As Padre talks with Finch, one of the guards receives a message that they have a situation and Madison comes on telling Padre that they have questions and his daughter. Madison demands that Padre order his guards to stand aside so that they can come and talk to him. Shrike asks Madison not to do this, but she simply tells Padre "no more hiding behind the mirror. Time to tell the truth." Shrike protests that Padre doesn't have to answer for anything, but Madison tells them both that every kid deserves to know why Padre had them ripped away from their parents while he wouldn't do the same for his own daughter.

Daniel reports in that his group got away from Hawk and his friends and he asks if Dove is still with her. When Madison confirms it, Daniel reveals that one of his people thinks that she might be Dove's mother. Taking the radio, Diane admits that she didn't think that it was possible, but a mother knows. Shrike tells Dove not to fall for it, but Diane identifies Dove as her daughter Alex who was taken away from her years ago by a Collector at a campground outside of Baton Rouge. Diane thinks that the Collector was probably Madison and she's sure that Dove is her daughter. An emotional Diane tells Dove that she's searched for her for a long time, and she sang "You Are My Sunshine" to her as Alex was taken away from her and she never stopped looking. Shrike insists that Diane is not Dove's mother and that she is just trying to get into her head. Madison orders Shrike to stop lying to her, but Shrike insists that she's not lying. Madison asks Padre for Dove's file so as to find out for sure while Shrike continues to insist that she's making a mistake. Madison threatens to tell everyone who Shrike really is, something that's overheard by all of the guards at the dock and Finch, and Padre relents and orders that Madison be brought inside and given what she wants. As the guards let them in, Madison tells Dove that she's about to get all of the answers that she came here for, and Madison grabs a sledgehammer from a nearby bucket of tools.

In the interrogation room, Madison puts a box full of files on the kids that she took down on the table and tells Dove to look inside and get her answers. However, Shrike interrupts them, insisting that there's something that they need to know before they read the file. Although they already know that this place is built on a lie, it's not what they think. June demands to know what it is then, but Shrike tells her that it's the only way to protect the kids from what happened here before. Madison asks Padre what happened before, but Padre refuses to answer to her. Madison recalls that Padre has always said that he's never lost a kid, but she doesn't believe it to be true and asks who he lost.

Madison continues to demand answers, but Shrike tells her that she will never get her father to admit to anything. Fed up with the lack of answers, Madison smashes the mirror with her sledgehammer, revealing Ben Krennick on the other side. "My father can't answer you 'cause my father is dead. My brother and I lost him a long time ago. You wanted to ask Padre for the truth. Go ahead. Ask us. We are Padre," Shrike tells the group.

12 years ago, Sam watches the herd milling around below the shipping container while in the present, Madison asks how it went from what Krennick was doing at the shipyard 12 years ago to what his children are doing here. Shrike explains that they didn't know how to go on while in the past, Ben emerges from a container stacked on top of theirs with a gun that he'd found in the container. As Ben watches a zombified Krennick amongst the herd in the past, in the present Shrike elaborates that they were left wondering what they even had to go on for. As Sam contemplates suicide in the past, a voice calls out for Krennick on the radio. In the present, Shrike states that the universe answered while Ben explains that it was one of the kids from the island wanting to know what happened to his parents with the rest of the kids wanting to know too. Dove demands to know what Ben and his sister told them, and Shrike admits that they knew that it would break the kids to know that their parents had died so they told the kids that their parents abandoned them, that they knew they couldn't take care of them, so they fled. As their parents left and never came back, the kids believed Shrike and Ben's lies. The two told the kids that they'd face the new world together without their parents and that they'd be better for it. Krennick died protecting what was inside the shipyard, so they made sure that it stayed that way, but Ben refuses to elaborate on how. June asks how a bunch of kids were able to recruit adults to their cause, and Ben explains that they had used the faulty PA system to make the adults believe that Krennick was still there, and they kept on believing it afterwards.

Dove asks why Shrike lied and she states that it was to protect the kids and directs her to open her file. When Dove hesitates, Madison looks in the box for herself and she finds Dove's file. As Shrike challenges Madison to reveal Dove's true identity, she discovers that Dove is actually Odessa Sanderson, the daughter of Ava Sanderson. A shocked Madison remembers meeting Ava in Louisiana with Morgan as both Ava and Morgan searched for their kidnapped daughters. Madison reveals Dove's real name to her and that she knew her mother Ava. Madison remembers putting a zombified Ava down to save Morgan's life and she sadly admits that Ava is dead. Under Shrike's prompting, Madison admits that Ava had died trying to get her daughter back from PADRE because Madison had made her believe that it was possible. Furious and in tears, Dove shoves Madison up against the wall, yelling at Madison for being responsible for her mother's death and for making Dove believe in something more. As Dove prepares to shoot Madison in revenge, Shrike orders her to let Madison go, promising that she will pay for what she did. Ben calls in guards who disarm June as Dove reluctantly stands down.

Shrike and Ben reveal that they intend to continue what they started at the train, making it clear that June has no other choice but to help them. June calls them monsters, but Shrike states that she and her brother are protecting these kids from the worst pain of all: the pain of losing a parent. Madison asks what that has to do with the train and the experiments and Ben explains that "as long as the world is the way it is, children will continue to experience unimaginable loss. But if there's a cure, that would change everything." Shrike adds that if that happens, they can go back to family and connection, but until then, they will protect these kids the way that they always have. Shrike offers Madison Ben's microphone to tell the kids that she rescued and the whole island the truth, but she decides to remain silent as Shrike had expected.

On the boat back to the train, Madison asks June what Nick and Alicia were like after her supposed death and June doesn't think that Madison would've recognized them. On shore, Daniel, Diane, Mo and the others emerge from the trees to surround Shrike and her forces. Daniel demands that Shrike let their people go, promising to walk away in exchange and no one has to get hurt. Daniel claims that they have another 12 soldiers deep in the woods with Shrike's Prefects, implying that they will kill Hawk and the others if Shrike doesn't agree to the deal. When Shrike doubts Daniel, he asks if she really wants to take that chance and Shrike relents, ordering her men to stand down. Daniel's people move in and disarm the PADRE forces and Diane addresses Dove as Alex, only to learn that Dove isn't her daughter and that Dove's mother is dead because of Madison. June tells Dove that she can still have a family even if it's not the one that she thought that what Madison made her believe in is still there. However, Dove chooses to stay with PADRE and Shrike tells the gathered parents that the rest of the kids will all make the same choice. Mo tells Shrike that the other kids won't, and Shrike will see, causing Shrike visible concern for a moment.

Madison apologizes to Daniel, while Diane tells him that this was a mistake and Madison can't help them. Daniel is sure that Madison can still help them, but she knows that Diane is right, and the kids will never follow her after everything that Madison has done. Diane makes it clear that the adults won't follow her either which Madison silently acknowledges. While Madison isn't the leader that they need, she thinks she knows who might be: Morgan Jones. Madison, Daniel, June, Diane, Mo and the others depart on the PADRE boat, leaving Shrike, Dove and the others on the shore.

"More Time Than You Know"[]

Morgan, Mo, Dwight, Sherry and Finch attempt to rush Grace to June. Grace is burning up while Morgan attempts to raise June on the radio. Grace wakes up on the boat, confused, and Morgan explains that Grace had gotten bit and Grace remembers what happened in the rubble of the house. Morgan tries to reassure Grace that everything is going to be alright because June has a way of treating bites, but Grace doesn't believe it. Mo and Sherry use Finch as an example of how the cure works and Morgan explains that the treatment helps to stop the infection and it stops the fever. Morgan promises Grace that they're going to get to do the things that they said and spend time together as a family.

Suddenly, shots ring out as two PADRE guards in another boat catch up to them. Dwight pushes the engine as much as he can while Morgan finally manages to raise June on the radio. Morgan tells June that Grace has been bitten on the side and they can't amputate, asking if June thinks that what she did for Finch will work on Grace. June admits that it might work, which Morgan is willing to take, but they will need equipment that PADRE has to do it. Morgan asks where she treated Finch and June reveals that it was on a train car. The boat's engine begins to overheat, and June asks for Grace's temperature, but Morgan can only tell her that Grace is really hot.

June tells Morgan that they must treat Grace fast, and Morgan asks for the last place that she saw the train car, but Shrike cuts in to tell Morgan that the train is no longer there. "Why do you think I put it on wheels in the first place? To keep people like you from messing with it." Morgan asks what Shrike wants and she claims that she wants to help save Grace's life. Morgan tells her to call off her men then, but Shrike wants Morgan to hear her out first. Shrike offers to tell Morgan where the train car is, have her people escort them there and even allow June to administer the treatment, explaining that she had paid a visit to King County and saw how many walkers that Morgan had killed single-handedly aside from the one who bit Grace. Morgan demands to know what Shrike wants and she tells him that there's a shipyard that is very important to their future. Standing next to a large machine gun looking at the shipyard, Shrike reveals that it has thousands of walkers inside that she needs cleared out. Shrike doesn't care if Morgan gets help from Dwight, Sherry, Madison or even Daniel's Resistance, she just wants the walkers dead. While Shrike was going to have the Prefects do it, she can risk Morgan instead of them. "That's how Grace gets a shot at living," she finishes.

After having passed out, Grace awakens again in the back of a PADRE truck. Morgan explains that they're on their way to the shipyard and Grace is then going to be taken to the train to meet June. Grace is shocked that Morgan surrendered to PADRE, asking how he knows that they will keep their word. Morgan reveals that they won't clear the shipyard until they're sure that Grace is safe with June, but Grace thinks that it's too dangerous despite Morgan's assurances that they've got it handled. Morgan radios Daniel who's people are armed and ready, but they need reassurances from Shrike that they're not walking into a trap. Shrike assures Daniel that the walkers are real and that she wants them dead, revealing that the contents of the shipping containers are valuable to her. Grace asks what they're going to help her do and Morgan tells her that they're going to help Shrike clear the shipyard, and they have the people and the weapons to do it with.

Morgan asks where the train is, but Shrike tells him that the job has to be done by hand, not with guns. The containers hold supplies that are needed to rebuild the world such as fertilizers and munitions. "One stray bullet and PADRE's entire legacy goes up in smoke," warns Shrike. Shrike didn't tell them before because she knew that Morgan had an army, but she didn't know that he had an armory too. Daniel backs out of the plan, telling Morgan that he's already told Shrike too much and it's too dangerous for Daniel to ask his soldiers to do this. Morgan begs Daniel not to back out on this now, but Daniel tells Morgan that he's not the one that Morgan should be angry with. Agreeing with Daniel, Grace takes the radio and reassures him that it's okay as Grace doesn't want anyone to die for her. Visibly saddened by the choice that he has to make, Daniel apologizes to his old friend as he genuinely wishes that they could help her.

Taking back the radio, Morgan is willing to do it without Daniel's help, but Grace tells Morgan that he doesn't know that he can do and he needs to be there for Mo while Dwight and Sherry need to be there for Finch. Morgan had to watch Jenny die from a bite and he isn't willing to do it again, but Grace tells Morgan that it's not up to them and it's not like she has much time left anyways. As her daughter begins to cry, Grace reveals that "before the bite, I was sick. It's cancer, Mo. I've been running away from it for a long time. It's finally catching up to me." Grace only has months left to live, maybe a year at most, which Mo points out is a lot more than a day.

The truck suddenly pulls over and Shrike tells Morgan that if he's not going to take the deal, then they need to make sure that Grace doesn't hurt Mo or Finch when she turns. Grace is dragged out of the truck and Shrike tells Mo that this is to protect her while Morgan begs Shrike that he will do whatever she wants. Grace begs the guards not to let her daughter watch while Mo begs them to stop. Morgan and Dwight share a look before attacking as Mo suddenly rushes in and shoves the guard's gun away as he shoots at Grace. Morgan strangles one man unconscious from behind while Dwight gets the other's gun and pistol-whips him unconscious as well. Dwight praises Mo's instincts and Mo credits Dwight's teaching of her. Mo promises that she's going to fight for every moment that she can have with Grace while Shrike calls in, ordering Kingfisher and Magpie to kill Morgan, Dwight and Sherry next. Grabbing a radio, Dwight informs Shrike that her men won't be able to comply with her orders, and Shrike warns him that while others have tried, no one has ever managed to steal a child from PADRE before. Before turning off the radio, Dwight tells Shrike that he thinks that Finch and Mo are going to be the first of many.

Morgan has Dwight get the map out of the truck cab in the hopes that it contains the location of the train car. However, Grace weakly warns him that even if they find its location, they won't make it there and neither will June. However, Morgan insists that it doesn't mean that they shouldn't try. Grace hands Morgan a set of coordinates that she wants to spend whatever time she has left with her family at, but she refuses to explain what they lead to, begging to just be taken there before Grace passes out again. Morgan knows that, with Grace's fever getting worse, they don't have much time. Dwight and Mo examine the map and find the tracks that train was on and guess that Shrike must've moved it further down the tracks. At Morgan's request, Dwight identifies Grace's coordinates as being a repeater station like the one that she serviced for PADRE, confusing Morgan as to why Grace would want to go there. Mo thinks that it's just because Grace is sick and confused, but Morgan doesn't think so as Grace had seemed pretty clear to him. However, Mo just got her parents back and she's not going to lose them again. Mo tells Morgan that this is no different than him and Grace sending Mo back to PADRE when they first met because it was what was best for her. Morgan finally concedes and agrees to take Grace to the train car, ordering Sherry to raise June and do everything that she can to meet them there. Shrike isn't going to make this easy, but Mo tells her father that they're fighting for someone they love and that's why they're going to win this. Having retrieved their weapons from the truck's cab, Mo returns Morgan's latest staff to him.

Later, in an underground area, Dwight joins his family and finds Finch out of breath. While Dwight at first thinks that it's because they've been running, Sherry tells her husband that Finch is running a fever. Sherry contacts June about Finch's condition and, when they check Finch's bite, they find it to be red and inflamed with the skin around it being hot. A worried June admits that the bite infection could be back, but she'd have to see it in order to be sure. Dwight demands to know what June means, but June needs to see Finch in person before she can make any kind of an assessment. Sherry points out that Grace's repeater station is close by, and Dwight agrees to send June the coordinates. Morgan orders June to go to Finch who needs her, and June promises to get to the train car as soon as she can and to talk Morgan through the procedure over the radio if she has to.

While Mo insists that June has to get to the train car, Morgan recognizes that the situation may well be hopeless after all since Finch's infection seems to have returned. Morgan and Grace explain to Mo that if Finch's infection really is back, "then whatever June's doing, it doesn't work." Mo refuses to give up and while Grace doesn't want her to, she also doesn't want her family to risk their lives for a treatment that doesn't work. Grace wants to spend whatever time she has left with Morgan and Mo and Morgan suggests heading to the carnival that he and Mo had walked through with Madison and blocking off the entrances so that they can stay there for as much time as they have. Mo won't give up, but Grace tells her that it's accepting how things are, not giving up. More flares shoot into the air and Morgan realizes that Dwight was right that PADRE's forces are getting closer. Morgan decides to lead PADRE's forces away and take the long way to the carnival, promising to meet Mo and Grace there against Mo's objections. Morgan gets off the boat and Grace tells him "thank you for understanding my love. It's what I want." Morgan promises to see Grace soon and, with a kiss to her hand, sends Mo and Grace off without him, instructing Mo to look after her mom.

Dwight and Sherry carry Finch to Grace's repeater station, confused as to why Grace wanted to go there, but deciding that it doesn't matter as June's on her way. Dwight promises Finch, who calls Dwight "Dad" for the first time, that he'll feel better soon as he lays Finch down on the bed. Looking around at the well-decorated room, Sherry realizes that Grace must've been preparing for a life after PADRE, and Dwight promises that both Grace and Finch are going to get it. Sherry tends to their son as June knocks at the door and enters with Daniel, telling the couple that Madison and some of Daniel's people are standing guard outside.

Mo helps Grace into train car, laying her mother down on the operating table. Outside, the Prefects move Mo's car away and Hawk shoots flares into the air to draw in walkers. Mo blocks the door and Grace asks her daughter how she knew that the Prefects wouldn't hurt her, and Mo admits that while she didn't know, she had to take the chance. Mo contacts June for help and she confirms that Finch's infection is back. June didn't give Finch a high enough dose of radiation to kill it as she didn't want the radiation to kill him. However, June did come close to getting it and if Grace already has cancer, they don't have to worry about how much radiation she gets. As a result, the cure might work on Grace and buy her the time that she wants. June promises that they're working on a solution for Finch, but Mo can't let PADRE destroy her equipment.

Under June's directions, Mo performs the radiation treatment on her mother while June observes Sherry tending to a very ill Finch. June tells Mo that it could take awhile for the treatment to work, but they have to watch Grace's temperature. If it starts to fall, that's a good sign, but if it keeps going up, they'll deal with it. Dwight asks what that means for Finch and June explains that Grace had the infection for longer than Finch did when June treated him. If this dose of radiation works on Grace, then it might work on Finch too. Dwight is concerned by the might in June's statement while June has Mo power down the equipment and the generator so that Mo isn't exposed to anything that she doesn't have to be. Mo notices a herd gathering outside and realizes that they won't be able to get out themselves, but Grace reassures her that Morgan is on his way. Grace asks about the Prefects and Mo is sure that they're hanging around somewhere, Dwight having taught them not to leave themselves exposed unless they had to. Mo knows that the Prefects are likely going to try to stop Morgan from getting to them.

Grace proudly commends her daughter's bravery when the Prefects tried to stop her and Mo admits that losing her mother had seemed scarier. Grace recalls that when she was Mo's age, she couldn't even pick up the courage to pick up the telephone when Grace's parents left her at home with her sister. Mo is confused by what a telephone is, getting a chuckle out of her mother who forgets how different things are for her daughter. "That's what I was trying to do at the repeater station. Show you how things were. How they still could be." Grace grows increasingly weaker and Mo discovers that her temperature is only going up. Mo discovers that Grace has a temperature of 106 degrees which June sadly reports means that Grace didn't get the radiotherapy in time. Even though Mo got her mother to the train car as fast as she could, it's not her fault: even if Grace had gotten the treatment right after the bite, it might not have been enough as it hasn't worked on anyone else. Mo desperately suggests giving Grace more, but both Grace and June tell her not to, knowing that Grace won't survive either way and more radiation would just kill her outright. June admits that she can't help Mo anymore and she instructs the young girl to enjoy the time that she has left while Grace reassures Mo that it's alright and that she did everything that she could.

"All I See Is Red"[]

June radios in with the news that they're picking up chatter from the prefects that they're getting bogged down and surrounded by walkers on a couple of sides.

At the repeater station, Dwight loads a gun while Sherry tends to a worsening Finch. June reports that they're just trying to keep his temperature down and she asks where Dwight is going, and he tells June that he wants to make sure that Shrike doesn't come back out of the swamp. June points out that killing Shrike won't save Finch, but he's determined to stop Shrike from doing to other kids what she's done to his son. June offers to do it instead, sadly admitting that there's not much that she can do for Finch now. "I wasn't there at the end for my daughter, I should've been. He needs you. So does Sherry." Crying, Dwight hands June the gun and he goes to tend to his dying son with his wife.

Shrike awakens on the train car with June standing over her and a severed walker head in the extension device. June tells Shrike that no one's going to hear her, and that June had found out Shrike's location from Morgan and Madison and June brought her here. Shrike begs June to try the treatment on her with a higher dose of radiation, but June states that it's not up to her. June contacts Dwight and Sherry for what to do with Shrike and Finch, near death from his returned walker bite infection, tells his father "don't make her feel this. No one should feel this." Complying with his dying son's wishes, Dwight instructs June to make it quick and painless. Telling Shrike that it's more than she deserves, June draws a knife and puts down the walker head.

A tearful Ben runs in, having heard that his sister was here and wanting to see her before she dies. Ben pleads with June who finally relents, telling Ben that either he ends Shrike's suffering or June will, and Ben agrees, showing June that he's unarmed. Walking away, June tells Ben that once he buries Shrike, he needs to find another place to live. June departs, leaving Ben with his dying sister and June's knife to end Shrike's suffering. Ben cries at Shrike's bedside, apologizing to her before mercy killing his sister.

"Anton"[]

Before Troy can swing the hammer, Daniel comes in using one of Troy's men as a human shield, ordering Troy to drop the hammer. June, Sherry and several others enter from another doorway with June reiterating Daniel's order. Troy complies and Daniel knocks out his hostage and Daniel cuts Madison and Strand loose. Strand thanks Daniel, greeting him as an old friend, but Daniel tells Strand that they're not friends. Troy comments that he'd hate to do to Daniel what he did to Daniel's daughter and Daniel finally recognizes Troy, promising to make sure that Troy really dies the next time that they meet. Troy asks if Daniel really thinks that what he's doing right now is going to stop them, pointing out that they know where the hotel is now, and they'll just keep coming back. However, Madison announces that if Troy does that, there won't be anyone left there for him to hurt. PADRE is about to expand with Madison offering to take in the hotel residents since they had helped her when Madison needed help. Troy asks how they can be sure that Madison won't do the same thing to them that she did to him, and Madison admits that she's done some things that she regrets, but the place that Madison is building is not about her, but rather about keeping something bigger alive. Troy asks what that is while Daniel warns Madison that they don't know how many people Troy has, and they have to get out. Madison tells Troy that she's going to build PADRE into what it should've always been for her kids, for Alicia.

As the group prepares to move out, Troy tells Madison that she can do that, but she's making a mistake "'cause that's the same thinking that got her killed in the first place." Madison angrily demands to know how Troy would know that and Troy claims to have been the one to kill Alicia. As proof, Troy kicks his duffel bag to Madison who opens the bag while ignoring Daniel's orders to leave and not listen to Troy, finding Alicia's Prosthetic Arm inside. Although Madison doesn't recognize it, Strand, June and Sherry are visibly devastated as they realize the implications of Troy having it. Troy reveals that it belongs to Alicia, claiming that he took it off of Alicia's corpse after Troy killed her. In grief and rage, Madison grabs the fallen hammer and charges at Troy, but Strand holds her back telling Madison not to let Troy get into her head. Troy states that he would've put Alicia down, but after all of the wandering around that Troy did in Mexico, he thought that it was only right that Alicia should do the same. Troy suggests that maybe one day Alicia will find Madison or vice versa and finish the job. Cradling the duffel bag while Strand carries the hammer, Madison and her allies back out of the room. "You want a fight, Madison? We'll give you that. Oh, we'll give you a fight. My question for you is... what are you even fighting for?"

"Sanctuary"[]

Dwight returns to his house, calling for Jay that he got the medicine. However, a zombified Jay emerges from inside, having succumbed to his diabetes while Dwight was gone and reanimated. Saddened by his friend's death and his inability help him, Dwight stabs Jay in the head, putting him down. Experiencing a breakdown over all of his losses and seemingly hallucinating, Dwight yells to Daryl that he tried to make it right, but he couldn't, and Daryl should've just killed him when he had the chance. No longer wanting to live, Dwight pleads for Daryl to come and kill him. Sherry, June and Dove arrive and Sherry and June explain that they've come for Dwight because they need him, but Dwight passes out before they can explain.

Inside of the house, Dwight awakens to Sherry stitching up his wound and tells the three that they need to get out of here. Dwight dodges Sherry's questions about who shot him aside from telling her that it wasn't Jay, only telling his estranged wife that the people responsible will kill her if they see her here with him. As June guides Sherry through the stitching, Dwight asks why she's not doing this herself, but June puts her injured hand behind her back, claiming that it's better this way. Dwight insists that they need to go, but June refuses to leave without him. Sherry and June explain that there's a fight coming that they can't win without him. Troy has a score to settle with Madison and he plans on doing it by taking over PADRE. While it's Madison's fight, she's made it there's, gone MIA and left Strand in charge of the island, surprising Dwight that Strand is still alive.

Sherry and June explain to a confused Dwight that he had trained every kid on the island, meaning that they'll listen to Dwight because they trust him. However, Dwight doesn't think that he can say or do anything that they couldn't do better, and he questions Dove's presence. Dove simply tells Dwight that PADRE is the only home that she's ever known and without it, Dove's got nothing. However, Dwight insists that he can't help save the kids as he couldn't even save his own son. Even though June insists that it's not Dwight fault that Finch died, he feels that it doesn't matter whose fault it is because Dwight believes that someone always gets hurt every time that he tries to make something right. Dwight tells a surprised Sherry how the guy outside had needed insulin just like her sister Tina and Jay had died because Dwight couldn't get him his insulin in time. Dwight tells the group that the best thing that they can do for PADRE and the kids there is to just leave Dwight here alone.

Dwight asks Sherry why she even came here in the first place since Sherry could've just given June directions, and Sherry tells him that it was for their son. While Finch is gone, PADRE isn't, but Dwight asks why Sherry wants to fight for it since PADRE is the reason that Finch is dead. Sherry insists that "maybe something good can come from something bad" and that they have to try so that Finch's life can mean something. By helping these kids and helping make PADRE into something better, they can honor Finch. However, while Dwight promises to honor Finch in his own way, he can't go back there. Sherry angrily demands to know what Dwight thinks that Finch would say if he knew that his father had walked away from kids that needed protection, but Dwight sadly explains that it's not because he doesn't care about the kids that he won't go back, but rather because Dwight does, fearing that he'll cause more harm than good if he tries to help and leaves the room, followed by Sherry. Left alone with June, Dove appears to be upset by what she has witnessed.

The next morning, Dove is missing, and June tries to raise her on the radio. Dove drives up in the group's truck, visibly injured to June's concern. The group finds Dove slumped over the wheel, shot in the side of her abdomen. June determines that there's no exit wound, meaning that they need to get the bullet out right away. Dove explains that she was shot by some assholes who were trying to steal the truck because they were looking for someone who burned their friend and Dwight realizes that Dove was attacked by the same men that he had encountered the night before. However, June's medical kit won't be enough to treat Dove as she needs anesthetic and surgical tools to get the bullet out and get it all cleaned up before she goes into septic shock. June insists that she can't do it on her own and asks if there's anywhere in the area with medical supplies and equipment.

Marty interrupts the discussion, disarming himself and apologizing for shooting Dove, but after what Dwight did to Phil, it feels like some beautiful karma. Dove realizes that Dwight was the one who had burned their friend and Marty offers his group's help, pointing out that that they have some top-notch medical supplies back at their place which Dwight knows because he was there. Dwight reveals to a shocked Sherry that the group's base is the Sanctuary, and she joins him in facing off against Marty. Marty intends to give Phil - who is still right where Dwight left him - the satisfaction of finishing what he started and offers to ensure that Dove gets patched up if Dwight gives himself over to them.

After exchanging a look with Sherry, Dwight lowers his gun in apparent acceptance, giving Sherry the chance to draw her own gun and open fire on Marty and his men while he's distracted, giving Dwight and Sherry time to take cover behind the truck. Needing the medical supplies for Dove, Sherry decides that they're going to the Sanctuary now, but Dwight protests that if Marty finds them there, he'll kill them. Sherry points out that the Sanctuary is 20 miles away and Marty's group is on foot, meaning that they can be in and out before Marty's people even know that they're there. "This is happening all over again. Us, a kid who needs surgery. I mean, it never ends," states Dwight, but both June and Sherry feel that they don't have a choice and Dwight reluctantly concedes. Drawn by the gunfire, walkers emerge from the woods, distracting Marty's group and giving Dwight, Sherry, June and Dove the chance to escape in the truck.

At the Sanctuary - now extremely dilapidated and with vines growing on the walls near the roof - Sherry is briefly consumed by flashbacks of Negan from her time living there before Dwight snaps her out of it. As the group ducks behind the furnace, Dove's coughing draws the attention of a guard who was left behind. Dwight exchanges fire with the guard, but he quickly runs out of ammo. Taking Dwight's place, Sherry shoots and kills the guard. A severely burned and zombified Phil bangs on the inside of the furnace, distracting Dwight for a moment before June reminds him that they need to move.

In the infirmary, June collects the supplies that they need for the surgery while Dwight reports that the rest of the building is clear, but they need to hurry up as they probably only have an hour before Marty and his people get here. June starts giving Sherry instructions, but Sherry is distracted by an old positive pregnancy test sitting on the table and Dwight and Sherry have a flashback to when Sherry had informed Dwight of her negative pregnancy test following their return to the Sanctuary and Sherry becoming one of Negan's "wives". Snapping them out of it, June begins guiding Dwight and Sherry through the surgery, insisting that she can't do it herself. Dwight tells June that it's not the train car, but June tells him that it's more than that. Sherry gives Dove a local anesthetic around the wound and June tells Dwight to start the extraction once Dove is numb. However, Dove refuses to let Dwight do it, telling June that Dwight couldn't even save his own son and she's not letting him do the same thing to her.

Suddenly, the building begins rumbling and through the window, Dwight sees a large herd, made up of both the fence walkers and regular walkers, pouring in through a hole in the fence and banging on the metal walls of the unstable building. Dwight guesses that the walkers must've been drawn by the gunfire and reports that with the perimeter fence broken, they're pilling in. Distressed, June tells Dwight and Sherry that this isn't going to work as the bullet is too close to one of Dove's arteries, meaning that one mistake in removing it while the building is shaking could be do more damage taking it out than the bullet did going in. With the Sanctuary hanging on by only a thread, they need to clear the walkers away from the wall. Dwight decides to go, and he orders Sherry to stay with June while Dwight holds off the walkers for as long as he can.

As the walkers continue to bang on the weakening walls of the Sanctuary which start to give under them, June tells Dove that they have to wait for the building to be stable for her to operate and June needs the extra hands. Recalling that June had said that this isn't about her missing finger, Dove demands to know the real reason that June won't operate on her, pointing out that by waiting she could die. June finally admits that the real reason is that she's afraid of acting and failing someone again in the process after having lost Finch, Hannah, and her daughter Rose while they were under June's care, something that has badly shaken June's confidence in her abilities. Dove is surprised to learn that June has a kid and June fondly recalls that Rose would've been about Dove's age now. June explains that Rose had pneumonia and June went out to look for medicine, but when she came back, it was already too late, and Rose had died. Tearfully, June admits that she couldn't save Rose, just like she couldn't save Finch.

"You know, PADRE was right. You can't protect me. None of you can protect me! It's exactly why I wanted to get away. I didn't come here for Red Kite. I came here to get as far away from PADRE as I could. I was trying to run away from you," reveals Dove, rejecting June's insistence that they can protect her. While PADRE was the only home that Dove ever knew, that's gone now because people like June are in charge now, people who will just let them down because that's what people who can't get over their own shit do. Hearing gunshots, June tries to contact Dwight and Sherry, asking what's happening.

Standing in a doorway, Sherry shoots at the walkers, although she has some trouble at first with the walkers that have metal protecting their heads until Sherry aims for the eyes. Sherry admits that she's fighting the herd alone because she's locked Dwight in his old room. Emerging from the building to face the walkers out in the open and lure them away from the wall, Sherry tells June that PADRE needs Dwight because the kids there will follow him to the ends of the Earth. While June tells Sherry that they need her too, Sherry states that she can keep the walkers distracted overriding June's worries that she can't handle the herd all by herself. Sherry orders June to do what they came to do and help Dove and get Dwight back to PADRE. However, while Sherry's distracted fighting the walkers in the courtyard, some of the walkers still behind the fence cause a section of it to topple over on Sherry, trapping Sherry beneath the fallen fence and the walkers laying on top of it. Sherry tries to reach her fallen gun, but she can't reach it or her radio as June tries to reach her.

Returning to the infirmary, June finds Dove trying to remove the bullet herself using a scalpel and a broken mirror. Aiming the scalpel at June, Dove states that she's going to get the bullet out herself. Although June tells Dove that she needs help or she'll die, the crying girl is convinced that she's not going to get it from Dwight and Sherry or June. As Dove goes to cut into herself again, she passes out.

No longer held back by Dwight and Sherry, the herd finally breaks through the Sanctuary's outer walls and Dwight and Sherry warn June that their friends are here and while Dwight has locked the door, it won't last long, and neither will the increasingly unstable building. Needing to get somewhere safer for the surgery, Dwight and Sherry carry Dove out while June gathers up medical supplies. As they leave, the concrete walls of the infirmary develop a large crack.

The group reaches the main room and take out a walker that approaches them, but realize that they're surrounded with nowhere to go as the Sanctuary continues to collapse and is overrun. Marty and his group break through the doors, but struggle with the walkers following them in through it, Marty losing his gun in the process. Marty's group falls victim to the herd and the falling celling with Dwight and Sherry just barely dodging a piece of falling debris themselves. June stabs a walker that gets too close to her and the still unconscious Dove while Marty grabs Dwight and shoves him up against the furnace which still contains a zombified Phil. Marty reminds Dwight of what he had said about giving his friend satisfaction and states that he thinks that he's going to enjoy this even more than Phil. Marty starts to unlatch the furnace door, but Dwight smashes him in the face with Negan's iron and releases Phil himself. Phil attacks Marty before he can recover, biting him in the face and starting to devour him. With the fire out, Dwight has everyone take cover inside of the furnace as the celling collapses on the herd.

Dwight uses his lighter to illuminate the furnace as a confused Dove wakes up. June explains that the building's collapsing, and Dove is convinced that this was never going to work, and they can't help her or anyone else. However, Dwight suggests that maybe they can help her. The furnace is stable, and it will protect them from whatever is happening outside, meaning that they can do the surgery in there. Although June still doesn't have the faith in herself to perform the surgery, Dwight has finally accepted that maybe Sherry was right all along. Maybe something good can come from something bad and maybe there's a reason that they all wound up in here and they just needed each other to see it. Inspired by Dwight's words, Sherry tells June that "what happened to you... what happened to all of us... it doesn't have to happen again. And maybe we -- Maybe we just needed to work through the bad to get to the good." June asks Dove if she trusts her, and Dove tells June to ask her again when she gets the bullet out which June agrees is fair enough and she begins to operate on Dove.

Later, the group emerges from the furnace to find that all of the walkers have been crushed by falling debris, leaving only a zombified Marty and Phil impaled on a fallen beam and pinned to the floor together. The Sanctuary - once the seemingly unbeatable fortress of Negan and the Saviors and a source of many bad memories for Dwight and Sherry - has at last been destroyed. June reports that Dove is still resting, but she's going to be okay. Dwight and Sherry spot a finch - the bird that their son was named after - perched on top of the furnace.

June drives the truck inside of the ruins with Dove in the passenger seat. Dove tells Dwight that she's doing better now and asks if he's coming with them, having abandoned her plans to run away from PADRE. Dwight states that he is, and he never should've left, suggesting that maybe they can turn PADRE into what it's supposed to be, the way that Finch wanted it which Sherry agrees with. Dwight gives June a wooden finger that he had carved for her to replace the finger that Shrike had cut off. Dwight recalls that before things went bad back at the train car, he'd asked June to be a part of his and Sherry's family. While Dwight had run away, he's here now and his offer to June still stands and he extends it to Dove as well. Dove thanks Dwight, calling him by his old PADRE code name of Red Kite, but Dwight tells her that since they're family, she should call him Dwight. Dove tells Dwight to call her by her real name of Odessa, finally shedding her past in favor of looking forward to the future. Dwight, Sherry, June and Odessa drive away with Dwight stopping to take one last look at the ruins of the Sanctuary before leaving it for good.

"Keeping Her Alive"[]

Amidst regular daily life on PADRE, Klaus, who is helping a younger boy with his math, notices the return of June, Dwight, Sherry and Odessa to the island. Panicking, Klaus warns Hildy and Marietta, who are guarding the door to the cell area, in German that the group is back and orders them to stall the others while he tells his father.

The two refuse to allow the group inside under Strand's orders before Strand rejoins them with Frank and Klaus. June demands to know where Tracy is, revealing that they'd had someone keep an eye on Strand while the group was gone, not trusting him alone due to Strand's past. Strand suggests discussing the situation in a more civilized manner and greets Dwight whom he hasn't seen in a long time. Strand instructs Frank in German to bring Klaus to their room, but Frank refuses to leave his husband so Hildy takes the boy instead.

Strand explains that he had brought Tracy to PADRE because he knew that Troy wouldn't dream of attacking the island while they had his daughter as leverage, but Dwight points out that it's also the perfect reason to attack. Strand points out that Troy doesn't know where they are, but Sherry is sure that, because they have his kid, Troy will find them. Strand sarcastically wonders how since Tracy hasn't been tagged for migratory purposes, but June angrily tells Strand that maybe he'd know how badly a parent would fight for their kid if Strand was doing more than just playing father to Klaus, forcing Strand to hold back an enraged Frank. Strand claims that June still doesn't know him after all of these years, but June states that she does and she had stood by at the Tower as Strand had made one bad decision after another, causing people to lose their lives because of his actions, including John Dorie Sr., and June won't make the same mistake again. Strand reminds June that many people lost their lives because of June when they first met and that they've all done things to build and survive and none of them are ones to throw stones. Tracy went missing while June was gone, Strand saw an opportunity, and someone had to make the call. June argues that none of them had asked him to do that while Odessa points out that there are plenty of Prefects who could've held down the fort in their absence, but Strand calls the Prefects and Odessa children. Strand insists that he's not the man that he used to be, and that June knows that because she's not the woman that she used to be either, calling June by her old alias of Naomi. Frank reveals to the group that Strand told him everything and introduces himself as Strand's husband.

June challenges Strand to prove that he's changed by returning Tracy to her father. While that might not be enough to satisfy Troy, giving him the man who kidnapped her too might. Dwight orders Strand to start walking, but he objects that it's not gonna work and they don't know Troy the way that he does. They've already lost the hotel and this island is the last chance that Strand has to do good on what he had promised to Alicia. Dwight admits that he wishes that he could believe that, while June challenges Strand to take this chance to prove that he really has changed. Strand reluctantly agrees and Sherry and Odessa go to get Tracy. Frank objects while Strand insists that he'll figure something out. Having seen what Troy did at the hotel, Frank knows that Troy is likely to kill him if Strand hands himself over, but Strand thinks that the others will kill him if he doesn't, and Strand doesn't want his husband to be caught in the crossfire. Strand asks Frank to wait for him, promising to come back to his family, and Frank reluctantly agrees.

On a boat heading for the mainland with Dwight, Sherry, Odessa, Strand and a blindfolded Tracy, June attempts to contact Troy, letting him know that they have his daughter who is safe and will be returned to him once they can agree to terms. Tracy questions if she really has to be blindfolded, but Strand tells her that they're not going to remove her blindfold so that she can see where they are as PADRE has lasted so long because it's impossible to find. Tracy tells Strand to stop trying to be her friend, reminding Strand that he's the one who had brought her in. Strand insists that no matter what Troy says, he's going to kill him and hurt Tracy. Tracy tells Strand that he doesn't know her dad who will do anything to protect her, but Strand says that he thinks that he knows Troy better than Tracy thinks he does, and that Troy is not the man that she thinks he is. June points out the hypocrisy of the idea that Strand can change but Troy can't. "He's a sociopath on a revenge tour. I have issues. There's a difference," states Strand. Strand wonders why he's the only one looking out for the girl, but Sherry implies that Strand is just looking out for himself. Strand again insists that this isn't about him, but about Tracy, and PADRE and about building the place that Alicia had wanted him to build, but no one believes Strand.

Troy finally responds, demanding to know who is calling him. June introduces herself as one of the people who had freed Madison and Strand from the hotel and allows Tracy to talk to her father who tells Troy that they're going to bring her back to him. June confirms this, but asks for Troy's assurance that he will not try to take PADRE. Troy points out that they took his daughter and asks why he would make a deal with them, but June clarifies that it was Strand who took Tracy, promising to bring both Tracy and Strand to him. Troy tells June that the one problem is that his people still need a place to live, but June tells him that Troy already has one with the hotel. June promises that they won't bother him there and reveals that Madison's no longer at PADRE anyways, meaning that whatever problem Troy had with her, he doesn't have with everyone else who is left there. Troy agrees to the deal as Strand tries to protest, instructing June to bring both Tracy and Strand to the hotel. Strand pleads with June not to do this, but Dwight tells him that it's too late. As they approach shore, a desperate Strand removes Tracy's blindfold and orders her to remember a lighthouse that they're passing. Strand informs his friends that they can't hand Tracy over now as she'll tell Troy where PADRE is. Tracy escapes over the side of the boat while Strand breaks free as well, cuts his bonds on the railing, yanks a wire out of the electrical panel and jumps overboard. Sherry orders Dwight to turn the boat around, but Strand's sabotage has disabled the power and the engines.

On shore, Tracy gets attacked by three walkers and falls. As the walkers close in on her, Strand takes them all out with a fallen tree branch. Strand promises that he's not going to hurt her, but Tracy thinks that it's only because she's not worth anything to him if she's dead. Strand notices Tracy wearing a St. Christopher's medallion, the same one that he had given to Alicia, and asks where she got it, but Tracy just asks why he's interested. Hearing the others calling for Tracy in the distance, Strand frantically tells the little girl that she doesn't want the others to find her because they're not going to take Tracy back to her father after what she just saw. Instead, Strand intends to take Tracy to the one person who can help both of them and Tracy finally agrees.

At Lowcountry Landing, Luciana and the Gearheads confront Troy, Russell and the rest of his people and Troy recognizes Luciana from the ranch as Nick's girlfriend, asking her in Spanish "shame about Nick, isn't it?" Luciana tells Troy that they don't want any trouble, but Troy states that it's too late for that as his daughter's already in some. Luciana is willing to let Troy use their roads to get to Tracy as long as none of her people get hurt. Troy asks if Luciana is going to help him even though Nick chose the ranch instead of her, but Luciana's people are more important to her than her pride. Troy warns Luciana to stand down if she really cares about her people as the Gearheads are outnumbered and outgunned and Troy orders his men to fan out and to take anything worth taking.

Luciana warns Troy not to as this won't end well from him. A large number of PADRE residents emerge from hiding and surround Troy's group, amongst them June, Dwight, Sherry, Odessa, Frank, Hildy and Marietta. Surprised but impressed, Troy realizes that he's fallen into a trap and Luciana admits that she had just needed him to get close, ordering Troy to stand down. Troy warns Luciana that he had trained every one of his men and that they will take out more of Luciana's people and the PADRE residents than they will of Troy's people if it comes down to a fight, but Dwight is happy to test out that theory while Frank quips that they want to make some room in their hotel again. Troy expresses concern about his daughter being in danger while they delay, and Luciana and June try to convince Troy to stand down and negotiate a ceasefire for his daughter's sake. Russell looks to Troy for directions, but he orders Russell not to act. Grabbing his radio, causing a moment of tension as everyone thinks that Troy is going for his gun instead, Troy contacts Strand and tells him that he's been held up, meaning that Strand is the only person that can help him. Strand promises to make sure that Tracy is okay, and Troy tells him where to find Madison, Daniel and Tracy.

Madison, Daniel, Strand, Ada, Della and Sara arrive at Lowcountry Landing which has been destroyed by a gunfight that has left most of both sides dead and more wounded. Tending to a wounded woman, Luciana explains to Daniel that they had Troy and his men surrounded, but it was like they didn't care whether they lived or died. Daniel reassures Luciana that Strand and Madison had no part in this and June runs over with a medical kit to tend to the woman as one of the PADRE fighters dispatches a member of Troy's group who reanimates. Strand finds Frank desperately tending to a dying Hildy who has been shot in the chest and is bleeding out fast. Frank begs his husband to get more dressings, but Hildy dies, and Strand sadly informs Frank that it's too late. Frank refuses to give up on Hildy, but he quickly reanimates, so Strand grabs Hildy's knife and stabs his friend in the head with it. The devastated Frank declares that they need to stop the man who did this to all of their friends and Strand promises his husband that they will.

Sherry dispatches another of Troy's men who had reanimated and tells Madison that Troy isn't here. Luciana explains that someone had stolen one of the Gearheads' trucks after the shooting broke out, and Madison knows that Troy is going to find his kid and PADRE. Luciana points out that Troy lost most of his men in the gunfight, wondering what it matters that Troy knows where to look, but Madison has realized that Troy isn't going to use his men to take it: Troy's going to do the exact same thing that he did at Broke Jaw Ranch 12 years before. "The dead. That's what they were for. They are his army," explains Daniel. Dwight doesn't know how many people they have left, and he and Sherry set out to do a headcount. Madison subsequently declares that she can help them by finishing what she had started at the dam and, watched by Strand, Daniel, Luciana, Frank, Ada, Della and Sara, Madison drives off alone in the SWAT van to confront Troy, unwilling to risk the lives of anyone else.

"Fighting Like You"[]

June will appear in this episode.

"The Road Ahead"[]

Russell's group releases a wave of grenades on PADRE's walls, creating an opening for the herd to get in. Scrambling to go back to help his family, Victor opens the door to the auto-shop and the group starts taking down walkers. At PADRE, Dove brings June the pistols that once belonged to John, while Dwight gives commands to the prefects. He throws Russell to the incoming herd to serve as a distraction.

Odessa asks June where she would go from here. June intends to visit John's cabin again. Odessa wants to come with her to learn medicine. June accepts, saying that maybe the cabin would help her the same way she had been helped once.
