"I'm sorry, hun. Men can be jerks."
—Paula speaking to Lori Grimes.[src]

Paula is a character in AMC's The Walking Dead. She is a resident of King County, Georgia, alongside her husband Tom and their children.


King County, Georgia

Nothing is known about Paula's life prior to or as the outbreak began, except that she lived in the same area as the Grimes family and was good friends with Lori Grimes. She was married to her husband, Tom, and had a child/children that attended the same elementary school as Carl.

Season 2


During a flashback, Lori is waiting to pick up Carl from school, and while waiting for the school dismissal, Lori is seen talking to Paula in a conversation about Lori's overall struggles with Rick and her family. Lori tells Paula that she sometimes wishes Rick would just "blow up" instead of always remaining dispassionate. Paula states that she does not have that problem with Tom. Paula is listening to Lori talk until the conversation is interrupted by Shane Walsh, a friend of the Grimes family, who arrives with bad news for Lori about Rick.


Location Unknown

As King County quickly fell to the undead, Paula's fate remains unclear. It is unknown whether or not she was able to survive the initial stages of the outbreak.


Lori Grimes

Paula and Lori have a seemingly positive friendship; most likely meeting through their children attending the same school. Lori has some form of trust, as displayed when she opens up and talks about the issues she was going through with Rick at that time. Paula attempts to console her before they are interrupted by the arrival of Shane and his news about Rick.
