Matthew is a survivor of the outbreak in AMC's Fear The Walking Dead. He is a former worker at Lonestar Power & Light in Texas. He is also the lover of Grace and the father of Athena.

Pre-Apocalypse

Texas

Before the outbreak, Matthew worked at a power plant called Lonestar Power & Light in Texas where Grace was an operations manager.

Post-Apocalypse

Texas

When the outbreak began, Grace called in all of the plant's shifts to keep it running, later calling in all of their families when things got worse. Due to the abundance of supplies and the sturdiness of the plant itself, the survivors were able to form a safe community with the plant's walls.

During their time together, Matthew and Grace formed a romantic relationship with each other. However, they lacked the infrastructure to properly maintain the plant and one of the reactors melted down, killing all but Grace. Grace, wearing her radiation suit, returned in time to find a dying Matthew in the hallways as alarms blared in the background and tended to him briefly. However, Matthew died and reanimated, forcing Grace to put him down.

Season 5

"End of the Line"

Grace discusses her and Matthew's romantic relationship with Morgan Jones briefly. Later, Dr. Holt discovers that Grace is pregnant with Matthew's baby.

Season 6

"In Dreams"

Matthew appears as a vision in Grace's dream state. She also has a flashback of finding him dying in the power plant and tending to Matthew before he reanimates, attacks Grace as a walker and she puts him down.

Making their way through Grace's dream state, Grace tells Athena about her father.

"The Beginning"

Grace tells Morgan that she had to watch Athena's father die of radiation poisoning and that it was long and painful for Matthew.

Death

Killed By
  • Reactor Meltdown (Caused, Alive)
  • Radiation Poisoning (Alive)

Following the beginning of the outbreak, the survivors at the power plant lacked the infrastructure needed to properly keep the plant going. As a result, one of the reactors melted down, killing all of the survivors at the plant. Matthew developed radiation poisoning from the meltdown and died shortly thereafter despite Grace's attempts to tend to him. He then reanimated.

After reanimating, Matthew attacked Grace and she stabbed him in the head, putting him down.

Killed Victims
