He is unable to answer Tara when she asks about Morgan. After a lengthy gunfight, Oscar and his allies are able to gain the upper hand as the Saviors call a retreat.

Six years after Rick's assumed death, Oscar started working in the Hilltop's fields and informs Tara about the ongoing farming operations and the crops.

A while later, Oscar assists Jesus' funeral and watches in sadness as the other residents hammer nails in the coffin.


Oscar is part of Tara's group in charge of clearing a tree from their path to the Kingdom to ensure the roads are cleared for Alden's convoy carrying the food and trade goods for the fair. Upon finding a downed tree, Oscar remains alert and checks the surrounding area. He then helps chop the tree into pieces to clear the road.

Later that day, a small herd of walkers approaches the group. They get in position and remind themselves to watch for the Whisperers. Suddenly, the Highwaymen ride up on horses and introduce themselves to Tara after helping to take down the herd. They then escort them to the Kingdom, having accepted Carol's deal. Upon arriving at the Kingdom, Oscar helps unload the trade goods and interacts with the welcoming Kingdommmers.

"The Calm Before"

Oscar watches from the crowd as Ezekiel declares they've finally accomplished Rick, Carl, and Jesus' dreams of reuniting the communities. "Let the fair of a new beginning begin!" Ezekiel says as everyone celebrates and applauds.

Later that day, Oscar and a group prepare to leave the Kingdom to go to Hilltop and leave some soldiers in case of a possible attack. He then fist bumps Tara goodbye. In the woods, Oscar and the rest encounter Ozzy, Alek, and D.J. and find one of Hilltop's carts overturned. The group decides to split up, with Oscar going to the Hilltop.

The next day, Oscar listens from the crowd as Siddiq delivers the tragic news about the fate of the missing fair attendees, tells them how brave the victims were in their final moments and how he was intentionally kept alive to tell this very story. He encourages everyone to remember the fallen as brave heroes and to honor them.

Some months after the blizzard, Oscar is among the coalition members drafted into the militia that was formed in response to the Whisperer threat.

He joins several dozen soldiers and militia on the frontlines and helps kill as many zombies as he can along the barbed wire fences. After getting the call to retreat, he and the others flee back towards the gates but are quickly stopped in their tracks as fire arrows ignite the walls and ground around them.
