The Walking Dead: Red Machete

"Behind Us"

Mandy is with her family in a hardware store as they witness a walker attack a young man and devour him alive. David secures the man's machete and the group retreats back home.

As time passes, Mandy practices with the machete gifted to her by her father. As the family's food supply begins to dwindle, they embark on another supply run.

As the group is overcome with walkers, Alyssa is grabbed by her hair by a walker, leading to her demise. Following the tragedy, Mandy receives a haircut by her father with the machete to prevent a similar incident.


Mandy comforts her father as he mourns over his daughter's grave. Later that day, they sit at an outdoor table as he teaches her how to properly cut a fish.

The next day, Mandy continues to practice using her machete, impressing her father. Afterwards, Mandy rests inside as her father gives her the machete, now with her name carved in the handle.

Outdoors, Mandy secures the makeshift barrier around their home, until she's alerted by the sound of her father's scream. As she rushes over, she notices her father covering his arm and realizes he's been bitten. After putting him down, she buries him next to Alyssa and uses a rock as a tombstone with the word "papa" carved into it.

As weeks pass, Mandy is inside of her house until she's spooked by the sound of a bell, signaling her that someone is nearby. As she hears the front door open, she quickly hides from the intruders in a closet. She watches a strange man walk into the room, and grows fearful as he approaches the closet. After he unsuspectedly walks away, she watches as the intruder takes her machete.


Over a year after the invasion, Mandy strolls through a field. Much to her surprise, she notices her former machete in the ground and happily retrieves it, now reunited with her weapon.

"We Find Ourselves"

Mandy camps alone, having left her home sometime before. She inspects the red tape wrapped around the handle of her machete and removes it. She stares at her name carved into the grip until hearing walkers approaching and killing them.

The next day, Mandy returns to her former home. She heads upstairs, and reminisces about the bed where she, Alyssa, and David had once slept. She heads back downstairs and looks at herself in the mirror until a walker emerges. After a short struggle, Mandy kills it.

Mandy visits the graves of her father and sister and decides to leave her machete next to their tombstones in remembrance. She walks off, now being able to move on from their deaths and begin elsewhere.

Following Mandy's departure from the area, her fate and location remains unknown.
