When Hershel is attacked by a zombified woman in Cell Block A, this woman comes to his aid. However, the woman is accidentally killed when another man's gun goes off, striking her. Moments later, the woman reanimates and is lured into the observation tower with the two other zombified patients. She is then killed by Hershel with a shotgun.
