Season 1

"So Close, Yet So Far"

As Travis drops Madison and Nick off at their home, Peter can be seen loading up his car with supplies. Despite being sick with the flu, Peter gives Travis and Madison a wave.

Later that night, Madison and Alicia witness a zombified Peter attacking their neighbor, Joanna Cruz.

"The Dog"

As Madison, Nick, and Alicia enter the Tran's home, they watch from a curtain an unknown stranger entering their house, killing the Cruz family dog that had wandered inside earlier. As Travis returns from downtown with his family and the Salazars, they enter to find the mysterious figure is their neighbor, Peter. An undead Peter attempts to attack them but is killed by Daniel with the shotgun they found in the Trans' house. The next morning, Travis wraps Peter's body in a rug and drags him into the backyard, burying him and discarding the bloody rug in the trash.


Killed By
  • Infection (Alive, Off-Screen)

During the day, Peter seems to be sick of the flu. At some point, he succumbs to the infection and reanimates.

As a zombified Peter is attacking Travis, Daniel enters the room with the Tran's shotgun, and shoots him in the face, blowing most of it. Daniel takes a step closer and shoots Peter again at point blank, blowing his head off.

  • While unconfirmed, Peter may have been bitten and died of that rather than having and dying of the flu as the true nature of the Wildfire Virus outbreak wasn't yet known.
