Season 3

"The Suicide King"

Paul is first seen the morning after the raid on their town by Rick's group. He is one of the angry and scared townspeople attempting to leave Woodbury. As Karen pleads with Shumpert and Martinez to let them leave, Paul demands the guards to let them out. He watches as one man is kicked off the wall as he attempts to leave, and another man pulled from his car after he refuses to stop honking at the gate. Moments later, screaming is heard from within Woodbury and people are fleeing down the street. The walls had been breached and several zombies have invaded the streets. A group of them managed to attack Richard Foster and seriously injure him with several bites. Paul watches in horror as the Governor walked up to Richard lying in the street and shot him in the head, out of mercy and annoyance, and because of Richard's cries of agony.

Later that day, after Andrea gave her speech about why everyone should stay in the town and rebuild, Paul agreed with her, but otherwise looked unimpressed.

"Welcome to the Tombs"

Paul is seen invading the prison and firing on walkers. He is also seen making a retreat once Glenn and Maggie opened fire. Afterwards, he is one of the first to object to what just happened, he attempts to walk away from the Governor resulting in him being the first to die when the Governor opens fire on his own people, being shot in his shoulder.

Paul's corpse appears in a brief flashback after he was killed with the other Woodbury residents by the Governor.


Killed By

  • Originally, Paul was not a character being cast for. However, the producers were impressed with E. Roger Mitchell's performance that the character Paul was created for him, after he did not get the role of "Citizen" that he originally auditioned for.[1]
