Lou is first seen inside the house that Rick Grimes, his son Carl, and Michonne Hawthorne have been staying in with the group he is with. He is encountered by Rick as he tries to find a way out of the house without being seen. As Rick has a close call, he hides in the bathroom while Lou is sitting on the toilet seat. Rick hits Lou in the stomach with a trophy and then struggles with him as he begins to choke him. Lou tries to reach for a pair of scissors that are lying on a countertop to defend himself, but he ultimately ends up dying. Shortly after, Lou reanimates as a zombie and can be heard attacking the other members of his group who are in the house.
