Main Article: Saul (Comic Series)

Saul doesn't appear after the events of 'The Fall of the Governor'. It is possible he was killed in the Pentecostal People of God's suicide pact or devoured by walkers after it.


Killed By

If Saul wasn't involved in the Prison assault, he was possibly killed by the walkers that overran Woodbury, or was poisoned in the suicide pact by the Pentecostal People of God.

It is confirmed, however that Saul did not escape onto the courthouse roof.
