Post-Apocalypse

Wal-Mart Shootout

Sam was a member of a four-man squad led by Bruce Cooper that were sent to sweep the parking lot of the Wal-Mart near Woodbury, Georgia, due to the nearby National Guard Tower being blown up by the prison survivors.

Bruce split his four-man team into two, with Sam accompanying him and two unnamed men investigating the vehicles in the car-park nearby. Bruce and Sam discovered the survivors present within the abandoned Wal-Mart. Bruce had ordered them to come out, which resulted in Glenn coming alone and being promptly shot by Bruce. In response, Andrea shot Bruce through the throat and Michonne sneaked up and mutilated the two other men.

Sam witnessed the deaths of his three companions and despite Andrea ordering him to lower his gun, he instead cried out in an outburst, screaming "You killed them... YOU KILLED THEM!", before raising his gun to shoot Andrea.
