The Road to Woodbury

Five days after arriving in tent city, Lydia and her sisters play hopscotch on a makeshift court etched into the red-brick clay with a stick while Lilly Caul babysits them. The settlers hear an engine in the distance and worry about it being a possible gangs of raiders. The Bingham girls freeze mid-skip but Lilly assures them that it's probably one of their own vehicles. Lydia, Mary and Ruthie start looking around for their mom. Lilly rounds up the four children and herds them all into the Bingham family tent.

On November 2nd Lilly babysits the Bingham girls while most of the camp goes on a run to gather firewood. Lydia and her sisters play musical chairs with three broken-down lawn chairs inside the circus tent. Lilly hears walkers approaching and Sarah grabs the hands of Lydia and Mary. They start to make their way out of the tent when a walker approaches from outside. They retreat back into the darkness and Sarah huddles with the twins in terror. Lilly says they're going to play a new game "hide and seek" but all the girls know this isn't a game. Lydia whimpers as they hear an axe split a head from outside. While Lilly grabs a shovel, Sarah's leg is grabbed by a walker from under the tent. She shrieks and instinctively pulls away to escape, causing the walker to get dragged further inside. Lilly jumps into action and kills the zombie. Lydia and her sisters cling to one another and slowly back away towards the tent's exit where half a dozen walkers enter the tent. The group plans on sneaking under the tent flaps when another walker blocks their path, having crawled in from underneath. The zombie bumps into the centre pillar and collapses the whole circus tent. In the darkness, Lilly orders Sarah to take her hand and grab the other girls to pull them out. The girls escape from under the collapsed tent, but Lydia is missing. Lilly sees her under the tent with several lumps moving towards her and goes back under to rescue the girl. She grabs onto Lydia's jumper and pulls her out just as a zombie claws for her Hello Kitty sneaker. Lilly bear hugs the girl as Lydia gasps for breath.

The girls cling to Lilly as they run towards a silver Chrysler 300 parked with it's keys in the ignition. Sarah goes to put the twins in the right rear passenger door when a dozen dead emerge from the trees behind her. She gets the door open but Lydia and Mary don't have enough time to get inside as they sprawl to the grass. In the chaos, they safely shut themselves inside the car as Sarah is surrounded by walkers. Lydia and her sisters watch in catatonic horror as Sarah makes a run for the circus tent and is quickly devoured by walkers. Lilly bangs her shovel on the row of vehicles to lead all the walkers away from the girls. The next day a funeral is held which Lydia and the seventy-two settlers of tent city (excluding Lilly and Chad) attend.

It is unknown what happened to her and her family after tent city was destroyed by walkers and engulfed by flames. Lilly's group speculate that it is very unlikely there were any survivors.
