Season 6

"JSS"

Shelly is at the pantry with Carol, Olivia, and Erin going over the food supply and gathering ingredients to prepare for dinner, where she adds a comment about her disgust for paprika before complaining about the old noodles they have in stock. Carol then tells her she can teach her how to make noodles, only if she stops smoking inside the house, to which she quietly agrees. As Shelly smokes outside her house later that day, one of the invading Wolves takes her by surprise and brutally kills her with a machete as Carol watches horrified from her window.

Death

Killed By
  • Aaron (Indirectly Caused)

Aaron leaves his backpack at Del Arno Foods, which causes the Wolves to locate and attack Alexandria.

As Shelly is smoking outside her house, a Wolf comes up and slashes her stomach open with a machete. As she falls down and screams in pain, the Wolf then uses the machete and hacks her head open, killing her.

Relationships

Carol Peletier

"You know, Shell, I can teach you how to make pasta with your own two hands. But you'd have to promise not to smoke in the house. It's just a disgusting habit, and it kills you. If you ask me, there are too many things trying to do that already."
—Carol to Shelly[src]

Carol and Shelly seem to have a stable relationship. When Shelly is complaining about the lack of a pasta machine, Carol says she can teach her how to make pasta with her own hands, but Shelly would have to promise not to smoke in the house, saying it is a disgusting habit that kills you, and that there are too many things out there trying to do that already. After the Wolves' attack on Alexandria, Carol mournfully looks upon Shelly's body and takes her cigarettes, and later breaks down over what has occurred and the deaths of her neighbors, especially Shelly and Erin.
