"I want them to know they can count on me when trouble comes. That they have a leader that shows up for them."
—Tara telling Gabriel that she wants the Hilltop residents to know they can count on her as their leader.[src]

Tara Chambler is a main character and a survivor of the outbreak in AMC's The Walking Dead. She is the daughter of David, the younger sister of Lilly, the aunt of Meghan, and the last remaining survivor of her immediate family until her death. After encountering Philip Blake, better known as The Governor, Tara and her family left their apartment complex they had been holding up in to find a safer place.

After helping Glenn Rhee escape the destroyed West Georgia Correctional Facility, Tara became a part of the group led by Abraham Ford on a mission to Washington, D.C., in search of a cure. She soon becomes a member of Rick Grimes' group. After joining the Alexandria Safe-Zone, Tara formed a romantic relationship with Denise Cloyd. During a supply run with Heath, she finds a community named Oceanside.

Six years after Rick's assumed death, Tara resides at Hilltop and serves as a co-leader to Jesus. After his death, she becomes the de-facto leader of Hilltop due to his and its residents' trust in her. During the fair, Tara becomes one of the leaders of the Coalition alongside Gabriel Stokes, Ezekiel, Carol Peletier, and Cyndie until her death.


Tara initially came off as cold and hostile upon meeting The Governor as he made his way into her family's apartment building. She was seen exhibiting varying degrees of rude behavior towards him, even when Lilly insisted it wasn't necessary.

As her character continues to be explored, we see that Tara's hard exterior is only a facade, which she presumably puts on for reasons of self-preservation or insecurity. In later appearances, she demonstrates a more friendly, compassionate, and honest nature. She is shown to be playful at times, such as when she played a game of tag with Meghan, as well as when she expressed amusement at finding a yo-yo in a discarded bag with Glenn and Rosita.

Tara is shown to express severe guilt for her involvement in the attack on the Prison that ultimately caused its downfall, as well as the deaths of Hershel Greene and countless other residents; even though she had little to no influence on the actual fight, she still bears the brunt of responsibility by virtue of having been there at all. This guilt eventually subsides after Tara is accepted into Rick Grimes' group and receives forgiveness from him, as well as Glenn Rhee and Maggie Greene.

Throughout the fifth season, Tara shows numerous signs of developing emotional maturity and inner strength, often shown through her growing friendship with Eugene Porter. The strength and determination she exhibits later gives Eugene the courage to display those same traits, saving Tara's life after she herself is seriously wounded and rendered unconscious during a supply run for the Alexandria Safe-Zone.

By the eighth season, Tara has grown much more cold and vengeful, especially towards the Saviors, and she has a strong desire to kill them all, except for the workers and prisoners, to avenge her girlfriend, Denise Cloyd, and her friends, Glenn, Abraham Ford, and Olivia. This shows that she is perfectly willing to eliminate human threats, just like most of the rest of her group. She was particularly hostile towards Dwight, who was responsible for Denise's death, wanting to kill him despite his decision to switch sides and help them and conspiring with Daryl, who likewise wanted all of the Saviors dead regardless of whether or nor they surrendered and likewise particularly despised Dwight, to do so. She was also the only one who participated in Daryl's plot to let walkers into the Sanctuary despite knowing that innocent workers and prisoners would die if they did so, showing that like Daryl, she has allowed her hatred to blind her to what is the morally correct thing to do.

However, after Dwight lures his fellow Saviors away from their location, Tara seems to soften, and remembers how she had once been one of the Governor's people, acknowledging her own hypocrisy. When she thought she had been shot with a poisoned arrow by Dwight and would die soon, she accepted this and said she thought she deserved it for the way she had behaved before, stating she may have pushed Dwight into switching sides again. After realizing he had shot her with a clean arrow and she was not dying, she seemed to finally let go of her hatred and told Daryl she would no longer aid him in his desire to kill Dwight and all the other Saviors.

Following the 6-year time jump, and the deaths of Gregory and Jesus, as well as Maggie's departure, Tara has found herself as the leader of Hilltop. As a leader, she seems to be stern and pragmatic, but still kind, understanding, honest, and willing to listen to others. When Alden and Luke went missing, she wasn't willing to put an entire group of her people at risk to find them, by going out to face an unknown threat, preferring to return to Hilltop to get more information before acting. Though she appears certain in her decisions, she openly admits to Yumiko that she doesn't know if she knows what she's doing, inviting her to talk to her if she ever disagrees with one of her decisions, and is also quick to forgive Yumiko and her group for going against her orders to search for Luke, understanding their fear for the safety of their friend.

In her final moments, Tara proved her bravery and strength of character, as she fought to the death against Whisperers, fighting to protect her friends until the very end.


Atlanta, Georgia

Tara had aspirations to become a police officer. This was evident in her actions. She held a gun as if training, had been well underway before the "virus." She talked the talk. She may have been fresh out of the academy. She speaks of a past relationship that meant more to her than the other half. This character develops and grows as the episodes progress.


During the initial stages of the outbreak, Tara's sister Lilly, their father David, and Lilly's daughter Meghan had picked Tara up from the academy and holed up together inside of an apartment complex. For about a year, Tara continually cleared their area of walkers. However, she was unaware that she needed to destroy the brain in order to kill one.

Season 4

"Live Bait"

This is the episode that introduces Tara. She is first seen with Lilly, her sister, talking to the Governor about what had happened prior to the outbreak.

Later on she is seen crying next to her father, David Chambler, who was sick and had just passed away. He then turns and almost bites Tara, but the Governor saves her. Later on she is seen talking to the Governor about her father's death. She tells him she knows that those who die will turn no matter what, thus seeming to know a little more about the outbreak than we initially thought. She then fist bumps the Governor, as acknowledgment for saving her life. Tara, Lilly, and Meghan leave with the Governor, thinking he can possibly take them to a safer place and protect them. They are then swarmed by a mob of walkers and in an attempt to escape, Tara runs away and twists her ankle, but is saved by Lilly. They trudge through the forest and she is last seen standing with Lilly outside the forest, unscratched and unbitten.

Rick tries to reason with Tara, asking her if this is what she wants. When the fighting begins, she ducks behind the tank and vehicles, showing that she is uncomfortable with the assault. Mitch Dolgen tells her to pick up her gun and to fight. Tara tries to reason with Alisha, telling her that they shouldn't be doing this and that The Governor decapitated Hershel. Alisha tells her to stay behind her and run into the forest if things get bad. As The Governor's militia moves into the prison, Tara runs away, leaving Alisha behind.


Tara is seen hiding in a fenced enclosure at the prison. As Glenn Rhee is leaving, he spots her in an almost catatonic state. She mentions her sister being swarmed by walkers. Glenn convinces her to accompany him. As they reach the road, Glenn asks if she has seen his wife Maggie Greene, but she hasn't. She mentions she wasn't supposed to be here, and once "Brian" killed the "old man", she knew instantly that she was on the wrong side, that she and his militia should never have trusted "Brian". Glenn asks if it was Hershel, since she describes him as an old man. She nods. She repeatedly tells Glenn how horrible she is for participating in the prison attack; Glenn responds that while he is not on good terms with her, he needs her help. She kills one walker as Glenn fights off the majority; after Glenn collapses with fatigue, she attacks the one who is about to bite him, repeatedly bashing its head in. She looks up to see Abraham Ford, Eugene Porter, and Rosita Espinosa, angrily and sarcastically asking them if they enjoyed the show.


Tara is first seen riding in Abraham's army truck. She is writing down coordinates on her hand with a marker so she knows where they're going. Walkers appear and she pulls out her gun to shoot but Abraham orders her not to and instead he attacks them with a crowbar. He is smiling and Tara said she's never seen that before. He replies saying he's the luckiest person in the world. Glenn wakes up on the back of Abraham's army truck, and Tara tells him not to move as she offers him some water. He asks where they are, she explains that she doesn't know and that he passed out after the prison. Glenn asks Tara if while driving they passed a bus. She replies yes, and then he asked her what she saw. Tara says they're all dead and it's been three hours since they've passed the bus. Glenn says they need to go back to the bus, so the two of them bang on the window from the back of Abe's army truck to stop driving. Abraham tells Glenn and Tara that they can't stop because Eugene knows the cure, shocking them both. But Glenn's only concern at this point is Maggie's whereabouts, so he decides to walk off. Tara follows him and explains that she wrote down every coordinate on her hand and she knows her way back. Tensions rise between Glenn and Abraham and they begin to fight, causing Abraham to push Tara over. She and Rosita tell them to stop fighting as Eugene notices some walkers. The four of them run back towards the truck to help Eugene fight off walkers. Glenn apologizes for the army truck and walks off, Tara gives Rosita her gun and follows Glenn. Rosita convinces Abraham and Eugene to go with them, and the five venture off. Abraham calls Tara a good person for going with Glenn and then says that saving the world is more important. She tells Abraham that she's not a good person, and questions Abraham on why he agreed to drive Eugene to Washington. Then she told him not to lie to her as they continue walking.


Tara is seen along with her group, walking the tracks on their way to Terminus. Eugene tries to strike up conversation with her, firstly by theorizing the dinosaurs could have been wiped out by the same virus that has wiped out civilization, before asking her what kind of gamer she was. Later, Glenn comes upon another Terminus sign marked by Maggie, Bob and Sasha and sprints ahead in search of them. Later, the group come upon a tower along the tracks and Abraham insists the group stops to rest, not having done so since they began their trek to Terminus. An impatient Glenn dismisses the plan and Tara is quick to agree with him. When a lone walker appears above in the tower and almost falls on top of Eugene, Tara is pushed out of the way by a protective Abraham and injures her knee. Nonetheless, she is still adamant in her support of Glenn. Rosita interjects, calling Glenn an "ass" and demands him to show more concern for Tara's well-being. The group argues, but eventually resolves to push forward.

Eventually, Tara and the group come upon a railway bridge in the mountainside. Abraham reluctantly parts company with Tara and Glenn, saying the risk is too high to Eugene and they will instead go around, telling them they'll likely be camped at the other side should they survive and make it through. Tara and Glenn enter the tunnel and find evidence of a fresh cave in, as well as many trapped walkers. Glenn insists he needs to see the faces of the walkers to ensure none of them are Maggie and Tara helps. When the two set a diversion with a flashlight to sneak around the overwhelming swarm of walkers, Tara slips and gets stuck in the debris. Glenn, refusing to leave her, is forced to empty his handgun clip into the surrounding walkers. Out of bullets, the pair are then saved by Abraham, Eugene, Rosita, Maggie, Sasha, and Bob Stookey, who have now converged and joined forces. Tara is later introduced to Maggie by Glenn, who tells his wife that he and Tara "met on the road." An appreciative Maggie gives Tara a hug of thanks. Later, with the newly formed group deciding on their next move, Tara agrees to go with Abraham to D.C. after they reach Terminus. The following day, Tara, now walking with a cane, arrives at Terminus with the others and is met by Mary, a middle aged woman who offers to get them settled and make them a plate of food.

Later she creates the groups team name 'GREATM' which consists of each member first name in the group making up a letter in 'GREATM'. The order goes: Glenn, Rosita, Eugene, Abraham, Tara, and Maggie, making them a team or 'band of brothers', as she later mentions.

Tara is later seen, along with Glenn and Rosita, looking for fresh water where she makes fun of the lying situation, being optimistic after what happened and she mentions how Eugene lied about being a scientist because lying is his only strength so the group shouldn't put him down for it, as she stands up for him, feeling sorry for how Abraham knocked him onto the ground. While at the small river Rosita suggests to catch some fish so the group go back to where the walkers were stuck underneath the telephone pole and Tara finds a backpack, which she takes with her back to the lake.

Season 7

"The Day Will Come When You Won't Be"

Tara briefly appears in a dream sequence with the rest of the group at Alexandria having dinner outside.


Tara lies unconscious on a beach. Two girls approach, the younger ready to kill her. The older girl stops her from killing Tara, despite being reminded that they're supposed to. She drags Tara's body up the beach.

In a flashback, Tara and Heath eat in the RV at the end of a two-week scavenging mission. Heath proposes they head back to Alexandria, but Tara insists they keep scavenging for ammo and medicine. Heath laments killing the Saviors at the satellite station – he realizes everyone's looking out for themselves and "nobody's in this together."

Cyndie later returns to the beach and finds Tara asleep in the hiding spot where she left her. She leaves water, fish and a spear next to Tara then walks away. Tara, who had only been pretending to sleep, follows Cyndie into the woods where she discovers a bustling village inhabited by a large group of women. Young girls run around and play. As Tara watches, hidden, the children are herded indoors and the adults begin arming themselves. As Tara looks on, one of the women turns and fires at her.

Tara flees and takes one of the women down, knocking her out. Rachel steps in front of Tara and is about to shoot her when Cyndie again intervenes. More women emerge and surround Tara, holding her at gunpoint. The leader, Natania, orders Cyndie to step away from Tara.

In a flashback, Tara and Heath cautiously move forward on a barricaded bridge blocked with cars and tarps. Tara tugs at a duffel bag lodged in a large sand pile. Heath tries to stop her, but it’s too late - the mound collapses, releasing a herd of walkers that were trapped inside. They are separated, and Heath disappears as Tara tries to fight off the walkers.

In the present, Tara sits handcuffed to a radiator. Natania walks into the room, joined by Kathy and Beatrice, and starts interrogating Tara about her background. Tara lies and says she was travelling with a friend who had worked with her on a fishing boat. She fell off a bridge after they were attacked by walkers and eventually washed up on shore. She offers to leave their settlement, but Natania worries that she knows too much.

That night over dinner, Natania invites Tara and her friend to reside at their settlement to ensure they never reveal their location to anyone. Tara observes that there are no men. Natania explains that the men were all killed in a skirmish with another group, after which the women decided to relocate their home and stay hidden. Tara confesses that she comes from a community that killed a threatening group at an old satellite station. She suggests their groups band together. Natania agrees to send a guide with Tara to find Heath and meet with her community.

The next day, Tara leaves the settlement with Kathy and Beatrice. In the woods, Tara catches on to the real plan: they are going to kill her. When a walker appears, Tara volunteers to kill it and seizes her opportunity to flee. Beatrice catches up with Tara. After a struggle, Beatrice has Tara at gunpoint. Tara pleads that she has to get back to her friends, but Beatrice tells her it's too late, assuring Tara that her people are dead. The satellite station was only an outpost: there are more outposts, and more Saviors.

Beatrice explains that her group tried to fight the Saviors too. When the Saviors won, they lined up every man and boy over 10 and shot them in the head. Beatrice explains that rather than work for Negan, they vanished and hid. She tells Tara "we can't let you lead them back to us," and apologizes but before she can pull the trigger, Cyndie tackles her to the ground and tells Tara to run.

Cyndie catches up with Tara and makes her swear to keep her settlement a secret. Tara agrees. Cyndie gives her a backpack with food and water and offers to take her to where she last saw Heath. They eventually arrive at the bridge and Cyndie refuses to leave until Tara safely crosses. She makes her way across the bridge as Cyndie shoots down walkers from the top of a car. Tara looks for Heath but is unable to find him.

In a flashback, Tara is surrounded by the sand walkers when Heath suddenly lays down gunfire to save her. He runs out of bullets and becomes overrun by walkers as Tara tries to make her way over to help him, but she's caught struggling with walkers. He insists that she go, but she refuses. "We're in this together!" she yells, before the walkers shove her back and she tumbles over the side of the bridge.

In the present, Tara safely crosses the bridge. She finds Heath's broken glasses and some tire tracks in the dirt. She picks up a badge that says "PPP" and puts it in her pocket.

Tara makes her way back toward Alexandria on foot. She camps out in a gift shop and eats the food that Cyndie gave her. She reaches the front gate and is met by a broken Eugene. Tara's face falls.

Tara sits in the infirmary, despondent over the news of Denise's death as well as the deaths of Glenn and Abraham. Determined to seek revenge on the Saviors, Rosita asks Tara if she has any leads on guns or ammo. Tara keeps her word to Cyndie and tells Rosita that she didn't find anything during her scouting mission.

She watches in horror as Negan disembowels Spencer, and is horrified when Olivia is shot in the face as punishment for Rosita trying to kill Negan. When Negan demands to know who made the bullet, Tara steps in and claims it was her. When the Saviors turn their guns on her, Eugene interjects and confesses it was him.

Tara accompanies the group as they reunite with the others at the Hilltop. Together, they all stride towards the mansion.

"Rock in the Road"

Tara is present when Rick tries to convince Gregory to fight against the Saviors. She tells him he should do the right thing and step up, but he cuts her off.

Jesus tells the group it is time they met King Ezekiel.

Tara accompanies the group to the Kingdom, where they are reunited with Morgan and meet Ezekiel. They leave the next morning when Ezekiel refuses to fight.

On their way back from the Kingdom, they encounter a blockade of cars on the highway set up by the Saviors. Tara helps to dismantle the explosives and Rosita takes some dynamite away from her, telling her she doesn't like the way it looks.

As a herd approaches the highway, Tara, Carl and Rosita work to block the onramp again until they are surrounded. They are eventually joined by Rick and Michonne and as they head back to Alexandria, the leftover dynamite explodes behind them.

Once they are back at Alexandria, Aaron and Tobin inform them Gabriel disappeared with most of their food and weapons. Rick finds a note left from Gabriel and they head off to find him. They end up at a junkyard, where they are held at gunpoint by a large group of strangers.

Tara watches through a tube as Rick is forced to fight a walker covered in metal armor and steel spikes. He later comes back to the group, injured but smiling, and tells them a deal has been made.

Later, Tara suggests heading back to Alexandria to regroup but Rosita says they need to search for guns. Tara reasons that Rick and Aaron are injured and the people back home need food. Rosita says she will go on her own but Tara says they are sticking together. Rosita asks what her problem is and Tara says they aren't looking for a fight but getting ready for one. Rosita says it's always a fight and tells her to grow up.

When Rick and Michonne discuss where they should look for guns, Rick says to Tara she's been out further than any of them and she can tell them where not to look, and she laughs it off nervously.

"Say Yes"

Tara arrives at Rosita's house to find her removing her stitches and says she was on her way to help her do that. After an awkward pause, Tara assures Rosita that it's going to work out. They have the numbers, they just need the weapons. Rosita asks if she knows where they can find that many guns. Tara says no. Rosita says she can't just wait. Tara again assures her they will find the guns and they will fight. She tells her to save her anger for the Saviors.

Tara inspects the bracelet that Cyndie gave to her. She hands the bracelet to Judith as she debates the pros and cons of telling Rick about the guns at Oceanside. She’s torn by her promise to keep its location a secret.

Tara accompanies the others in delivering the guns to Jadis and her group. She looks defeated when Jadis says it is not enough and they need nearly twice as many.

Back in Alexandria, Rick asks Tara if she's seen Rosita, who didn't show up for guard shift. Tara says she has something to tell Rick.

"Something They Need"

Tara reveals to Rick and the group that she encountered a group with guns while on her supply-run with Heath called Oceanside who had once fought the Saviors but lost, and are now in hiding. Realizing she needs to break her promise in order to acquire the guns and people to win the war against the Saviors, Tara leads the group of Alexandrians to the distant community. At Oceanside, Tara sneaks into Natania's home and holds her at gunpoint.

Cyndie suddenly enters Natania's home and Tara calls her out. She is angry and hurt that Tara broke her promise, but she says she had no choice and explains that her group is taking their guns in order to fight the Saviors. She begs them to talk to Rick and join their resistance. Natania refuses. Natania feigns an injury, distracting Tara, and giving Cyndie enough time to grab a hidden gun. Tara turns her gun towards Cyndie, and is tackled by Natania. As Cyndie holds her at gunpoint, Tara reveals that her own gun was never loaded. Natania asks for Cyndie's gun and she reluctantly complies.

As the other Oceansiders are taken captive outside by Rick and his group, Natania appears holding Tara at gunpoint. Cyndie tells her people that Rick's group wants to fight the Saviors. Beatrice suggests they join the fight but Natania refuses to lose more people to the Saviors. When Michonne warns Rick that walkers are approaching, Cyndie knocks Natania out, saving Tara's life again. The Alexandrians and the Oceansiders organize a combined defense that allows them to efficiently kill the walkers. Natania angrily concedes, allowing Rick's group to take their guns; but she remains adamant against fighting.

The Oceanside residents later watch the group leave with their guns. Cyndie informs Tara that Natania has forbidden her community to fight the Saviors. She thanks Tara for what her group is doing.

When the group returns to Alexandria late at night, Rosita opens the gate for them. She tells them they have a visitor. Rosita leads Rick's group to the Alexandria prison cell where Dwight sits behind bars. Rosita says that Dwight wants to help.

"The First Day of the Rest of Your Life"

In the Alexandria prison cell, Tara furiously reprimands Dwight for murdering Denise, to which he replies that she was not his intended target. In response, Daryl slams Dwight against a wall and holds him at knifepoint. Tara tells Daryl to kill him, but Dwight tells Daryl that he served Negan for Sherry's sake and Sherry had saved Daryl, but Sherry is gone now. Daryl reluctantly releases Dwight, believing his story.

When Dwight leaves to head back to the Sanctuary, Tara and Daryl exchange glances.

Later, a Scavenger watches Tara as she helps set up a blockade outside the gate.

Tara, along with the others, looks shocked as Eugene arrives with the Saviors and tells the group to surrender.

Simultaneously, the Scavengers all turn their guns on the Alexandrians. Negan emerges from a truck and taunts Rick as the Saviors open the truck that holds the explosives. She witnesses Sasha - who has died and reanimated - attack Negan and Carl uses the distraction to start shooting at the Scavengers and the Saviors. Rosita is shot during the firefight and Tara grabs her by the arm and leads her to the infirmary.

As Negan prepares to strike Carl with Lucille, Shiva leaps onto and mauls a nearby Scavenger. Ezekiel, Carol and the Kindommers arrive at the head of the Kingdom regiment in an attack, as Maggie arrives with the Hilltop fighters.

After the Saviors and the Scavengers have fled, Tara is seen sitting by Rosita's side as she recovers in bed. She also attends the funeral held for Sasha as well as the meeting of all the communities.

Season 8


Tara and Carol stand watch on a bridge. Tara checks the time and notes it is "10:28" as they are waiting and Carol notices a walker spray painted on the highways railing. They spot a herd of walkers in the distance and smile. The two of them sit on the bridge and wait as the herd of walkers moves along the road below.

At the highway, Daryl meets with Carol, Tara and Morgan on his bike. Morgan is sitting, contemplating his bloody stick.

Now, it's 7:50 and Tara awaits a herd with her group of four on a highway. She counts down to their arrival but is disappointed to see they didn't arrive but the herd eventually come around the corner, they vacate the road in haste. Moments later, the SUV they parked on the exit ramp explodes. Dwight dispatches a large team of Saviors to investigate the explosion.

Daryl and Morgan rig a tripwire across a road. They join Carol and Tara on a pedestrian overpass. The four of them are carefully tracking the bombs they planted for the herd to follow. The group spots a walker nearing the tripwire. Morgan stops the walker from tripping the explosive. On the road, the Savior caravan trips the wire and sets off an explosion. The herd approaches, drawn by the explosion. Morgan and Tara get in a car, preparing to leave. Carol and Daryl go separate ways.

Tara is later seen with a small group of soldiers from the militia, which includes Morgan, Jesus and Dianne, as they stand outside the fence of the satellite station outpost they previously cleared out. It has since been re-settled by Saviors. Tara, Morgan, Jesus and Kingdommers are about to raid their location.

"The Damned"

Tara is among the Hilltoppers to sneak into the Satellite Outpost that has been re-occupied by the Saviors in order to take it over. Tara, Jesus, Morgan and Diane prepare for a raid on the Satellite station. Tara claims they did it before and can do it again, Morgan says he wasn't there before. Jesus insists if a gun fires they won't get in. Jesus tells Tara to ensure no one gets the chance to do that.

Morgan bangs on the fence to attract walkers. Two Saviors head over to investigate. Diane hits them in the head with arrows almost simultaneously. Tara, Jesus, and Morgan venture inside. They use silenced pistols to put down Saviors. Diane whistles the rest of the group in. They form up outside the various inhabited rooms and await Jesus' signal to attack. 

Jesus gives the signal, and the Militia soldiers burst into the rooms and begin taking out Saviors, catching them by surprise. Morgan, Freddie and Andy prepare to breach a door, but before they can do so, a Savior opens it, and they promptly gun him down. Unbeknownst to them, at least half a dozen others were behind a corner, and before they can react, Freddie and Andy are killed and Morgan is concussed. 

As they sweep the station, Jesus and Tara discover a Savior named Dean cowering in a closet, having seemingly peed himself in fear. He claims to be a worker from the Sanctuary forced from his family. Jesus decides to show mercy and let him live, but Tara is furious, desiring to kill all the Saviors out of revenge for Denise. Outside the room, Dianne and the others have been pinned down by Saviors, and the gunfire provides a distraction for Dean to take Jesus hostage, revealing his deception. Before he can shoot Tara, Jesus swiftly disarms him with his skills in martial arts. Regardless, he refuses to kill Dean, instead choosing to tie him up, much to Tara's disgust, who questions Jesus on Abraham, Glenn and Denise. Over the radio, the Saviors order a retreat from the outpost, so they join the others to press the attack. 

Outside, Jesus leads the rest of the fighters to the back exit of the compound, intercepting around a dozen fleeing Saviors, including Alden, who appear to consist mostly of workers. Heavily outnumbered and outgunned, they surrender without a fight, but Tara angrily declares that even if Maggie listens to Jesus' reasoning, Rick will listen to hers. Meanwhile, Morgan continues his killing spree, before finally emerging outside. Still reeling and unbalanced, he is shocked to see the Militia taking hostages. He is shaken from his trance when he sees Jared amongst the captured Saviors. He is prevented from killing him by Jesus, who insists that they do not kill those who surrender. After a while, Morgan is struggling to accept whether they should let the Saviors live or not, Jesus is contemplating his decision, Tara is unhappy about their choice. 


Tara is among the militia taking the Saviors back to the Hilltop, while riding on the back of a pickup truck with Eduardo. He tells Tara that Maggie will know what to do with them. Tara acknowledges him, believing she will kill them for what they've done. As the militia gets ambushed by on coming zombies, she helps defend their prisoners, and watches as Morgan chases after Jared and his chain gang into the woods.

Tara and Dianne arrive after Morgan and Jesus have their fight about the Savior's fate. He tells Jesus that he isn't right, but that doesn't make him wrong either. He concludes that he can't be a part of the war, and leaves on his own, but not before Tara tells him that he is right about killing the Saviors.

Tara, along with Jesus' group arrives at the Hilltop. Gregory immediately insists that they can't stay, but Maggie shuts him up and sends him away while she talks to Jesus. Tara says she agrees with Gregory that they shouldn't be allowed to stay, and Maggie notes that with families and children at the Hilltop, the arrangement would be dangerous. Jesus insists they can't kill those who surrendered, and makes plans to keep them under armed guard in two empty trailers.

"The King, the Widow, and Rick"

Tara talks to Daryl after he returns to Alexandria. She tells him that she understands why he spared Dwight and feels he made the right choice as Dwight is the only reason they've gotten so far. However, Tara is determined to kill Dwight when its over. Daryl suggests that they will kill him together and that they won't have to wait for the war to be over. Later he and Tara get in a truck and crash into Zia's vehicle killing her. Then, Tara, Daryl, Michonne and Rosita are outside of the Sanctuary looking at the walkers with Daryl saying "finishing it",

"Time for After"

Tara and Daryl discuss their rogue plan with Michonne and Rosita; Morgan joins them soon after. Rosita shows doubts about the plan, concerned about the workers inside the building and the plan going awry. Daryl argues that, without the Kingdom's forces, they do not have the numbers to force a surrender, but Rosita reminds them of Rick's proposition to the Scavengers. Tara confronts her about her apparent change in attitude towards the Scavengers, but Rosita insists she's just following Rick's plan.

Tara recounts how she had waited before telling Rick about Oceanside and their weapon cache, showing regret at the fact that she had not informed him earlier, which could have helped better their situation. She explains that she is not going to wait again and is willing to follow with Daryl's plan, with or without Rosita. 

Rosita leaves, while Tara and Daryl continue their plan and Michonne insists on seeing it through. Daryl, Tara and Michonne drive the truck to the edge of the Sanctuary's perimeter as Morgan keeps watch. As Tara takes point, Daryl turns to Michonne, asking if she's prepared. Having taken Rosita's words into consideration, Michonne decides the risk is not worth it. Daryl allows her to leave.

Tara, Morgan, Daryl and the lookouts set themselves up for the breach. Several Saviors perched at the window are fired upon by Tara, Morgan and the lookouts as Daryl crashes the truck into the Sanctuary, breaching the walls and allowing the herd to pour in. Tara and Daryl retreat as the walkers begin making their way inside.

"How It's Gotta Be"

Tara is first seen with Rosita unloading some boxes. She suggests that, they take the air horn to direct the herd, Rosita with a smile on her face puts the heavy boxes on her arms. She is later seen when Negan destroys Alexandria. Tara is seen with Daryl leading a convoy, when they trap and kill all the Saviors, except Laura. Tara is then seen sitting with everyone in the sewers.


Tara remains in the sewers with the other Alexandrians as the Saviors' grenades continue to blow apart Alexandria above them. Tara listens as Dwight explains that the Saviors will soon run out of ammo and insists they stay put until the siege is over. After the explosions subside and the remaining Saviors leave, Tara says goodbye to Carl and she and the others prepare to head to the Hilltop for refuge.

"Dead or Alive Or"

Tara and the other Alexandrians evacuate through the woods towards the Hilltop. The group comes across a walker in the forest. Tara moves in to deal with it, but allows it to cross over to Dwight, claiming that it escaped her grasp. Dwight dispatches it before the group heads forward. The Alexandrians, having walked a considerable distance, rest in the forest. As Daryl and Rosita retrace their steps to cover their tracks, Tara, still vengeful, questions why Dwight is still alive. Daryl and Rosita agree that Dwight may still prove to be a valuable asset, with Rosita deciding to wait on dealing with him until they reach the Hilltop.

Tara, Daryl and Rosita look over a map at the different routes the Saviors can travel from the Sanctuary to the Hilltop, finding that most of their paths can be potentially dangerous. Dwight, however, points out that an alternate path, through a swamp is seldom used, due to the risks it poses against the Saviors. Silence falls over the group, and Tara realizes that they are considering taking the swamp route, voicing her opposition to the plan.

Tobin and Scott also question Dwight's loyalties, fearing that he could potentially turn against the Militia the same way he deserted the Saviors. He argues that while he put down his fellow survivors, one escaped, and affirms that he will not return to the Saviors, seeing that there is now a price on his head for his betrayal. He solidifies his choice to side with the Militia, accepting that whatever happens to him after Negan's fall happens. Having heard his words, Daryl agrees to traverse the swamps.

Daryl gathers volunteers to assist with clearing out the infestation. Dwight is disallowed and Tara opts to stay behind to watch the group. As the rest of the Alexandrians wait at the bank, Tara spots a small group of walkers in the trees. She asks for a volunteer to help her clear them, before tossing a knife in Dwight's direction. Picking up the knife, he and Tara head towards the zombies. Dwight swings at walkers with his knife, while Tara holds back with her handgun. As they continue forward, Dwight expresses his remorse for killing Denise, accepting that he may not be forgiven for his deed. After putting down the last zombie, Dwight turns to find Tara holding him at gunpoint. He attempts to reason with her, explaining that his choice to change sides was a sincere gesture. Tara, however, is fixated on avenging Denise, and makes several attempts to shoot Dwight, chasing him through the forest. They come to a clearing, but are interrupted by the arrival of a Savior patrol and are forced to hide in the bushes.

As the Savior patrol passes, Tara continues to hold Dwight at gunpoint. She then turns her attention towards the patrol, who are inching closer to their position. In an effort to divert their attention away, Dwight makes his presence known, explaining that he survived the ambush near Alexandria and leads them away from the swamp.

Tara is surprised by this and turns to leave and finds Rosita, having followed the pair. She asks why she didn't attempt to stop her, with Rosita explaining that she would have also pursued him to no end.

Back at the swamp, Daryl lets his rage fly, berating Tara for allowing Dwight to leave and risking him giving away their group to the Saviors. Having seen Dwight's efforts to sway the Saviors away from their location, Tara is convinced that Dwight has changed for the better. Daryl remains unconvinced, but forgoes continuing the conversation any longer, leading the Alexandrians through the now-clear waters. Tara and the Alexandrians arrive at the Hilltop gates, bearing the news of the town's downfall and the loss of Carl.

"Do Not Send Us Astray"

Tara is among the Alexandria residents and refugees who are prepared to defend the Hilltop from the Saviors. During the battle, Simon spots Tara and orders Dwight to hunt her down. Daryl sees Simon and Dwight sneaking up on Tara and shouts a warning, but is too late as Dwight shoots Tara in the arm with an arrow. She is removed from battle as the militia manages to drive the Saviors out.

Hilltop cleans up in the aftermath of battle. Tara and Daryl discuss Dwight shooting her. Tara tells Daryl that she was with the Governor when they first met. Daryl references his brother and says he would be with the Saviors if he were still around. Tara has been vouching for Dwight since he saved their lives, "I saw him try and help us win," she tells Daryl, but he refuses to accept her word and leaves.

Later, during the night after the reanimated residents were turned and killed, Tara sits on a bed surrounded by Enid, Rosita, and others. Tara questions how this happened. Daryl tells her that the Saviors did something to their weapons and that everyone they cut up, got shot, they all turned. Having been wounded by a Savior arrow, "Karma's a bitch", Tara says as she accepts her fate.

"Still Gotta Mean Something"

A day after the attack on the Hilltop, Tara meets with Daryl and she tells him she isn't sick and that Dwight shot her with a clean arrow. Tara reasons that Dwight shot her to save her life and probably couldn't break away to warn them about the coming attack though Daryl refuses to believe it. They disagree on their stances with the character. Dwight's actions cause Tara to let go of her vendetta against him.


When the Saviors are seen approaching, the Hilltoppers evacuate. Tara, worried that the wailing of Gracie will put the Saviors on their trail, stays behind to fight. Alden and the other prisoners insist on helping her. Tara and the prisoners prepare to attack. To their surprise Cyndie and the Oceansiders ambush the Saviors with Molotov cocktails, preventing a battle. Tara smiles on as they finally join the battle.

After the war with the Saviors ended, Tara and Rosita deliver supplies to the Sanctuary, where they greet Tanya and Frankie while Saviors are rebuilding their compound. 

Season 9

"A New Beginning"

On the road, Tara is scouting when Eugene radios her, informing her that Daryl will be meeting the rest of the group so they can go to Washington D.C. to search for farming materials.

Later that day, Tara and the group go to the Smithsonian in Washington D.C, to search for a covered wagon and farming equipment. However, she stays outside as a lookout along with Aaron, Jesus and Alden.

Shortly after, the group leaves D.C. and prepare to head back to their own communities.

On the road, Daryl and Rosita catch up with everyone to inform them that the main bridge is out due to a storm. Rick tells Tara, Gabriel, Aaron and Anne to head back to Alexandria and the rest will go to an alternate route and spend the night at the Sanctuary.

"The Bridge"

At a camp, which the communities have set up in the woods, Tara walks around with Anne and salutes Rick when she passes by his side.

Later, Tara sits on a crane and radios Rick to update him on the walker distraction plan, before radioing Jerry, so he could turn on a siren. However, she notices that the other siren hasn't been turn on and radios Rick again to warn him that the herd is coming.

In the camp, at night, as everyone laughs and talks, Tara is seen laughing with Rosita, Eugene and others.

"What Comes After"

On the bridge, as Rick limps away before collapsing, he hallucinates as Tara and the others rush past him to kill the walkers. Michonne stops and sees Rick's wound. She reminds him she fell in love with him because he's a fighter. After killing the walkers, everyone stops to watch them. Michonne tells Rick how much she loves him and he tells her, "This isn't real." Michonne tells him to wake up and he does, now alone on the bridge.

The walkers approach as Rick hobbles away. He makes it across the bridge and turns around hoping to see the walkers fall through, to no avail. A walker makes its way inches away from Rick before getting shot in the head by a crossbow bolt. Rick watches as Tara and the rest arrive nearby.

Maggie and Michonne hatch a plan to divert the walkers but Rick won't allow it. He notices the dynamite on the bridge, takes aim, and says to himself "I found them," before shooting and igniting the dynamite. The bridge ignites and explodes as Tara and the rest can only watch in horror, assuming Rick to be dead.


At some point, during the six years after Rick's supposed death, Maggie, along with Hershel, left Hilltop to join Georgie's group. Following her departure, Jesus was elected as the new leader. Tara, knowing he doesn't like the responsibilities, moves to Hilltop to help around.

Six years later, in a thriving Hilltop, Tara checks as residents tend to their crops. Inside the Barrington house, Tara asks Jesus about any news on Maggie. He reveals she and Hershel are with Georgie and she has send another letter, where she admits to be happy.

Tara updates him on some minor problems at their community and congratulates him on being reelected as the leader. He reminds her he ran unopposed, but Tara suggests he should take Maggie's office and he refuses.

At night, Tara updates Jesus on Rosita's condition and asks what he was doing out there. Jesus confesses he was training Aaron while trying to get Alexandria on board with the Fair. She scolds him and tells him that people are noticing his constant absence from Hilltop. She reveals she’s leaving tomorrow to look for Eugene and that he needs to stay.

In the morning, Tara greets and hugs Daryl and Carol as they arrive with Henry. As the rescue group gears up to go find Eugene, Jesus tells Tara he will go instead of her and next time he promises to stay, to which she agrees smiling.


At Hilltop, everyone runs inside as Michonne and Siddiq arrive with Magna and her group. From the guard post, Diane makes them all surrender their weapons before entering. 

Inside, Tara coldly greets Michonne and updates her on Eugene, Aaron, Daryl, and Rosita's situations. She then informs Magna's group that they'll have to wait for Jesus to return before deciding on their future, but they can stay until he gets back. Connie thanks her for everyone.

At night, Tara takes Earl down to the jail where Henry sits in a cell as punishment for misbehavior.


In Hilltop, Tara talks with Enid, Alden, D.J., and Marco to organize a search party to look for the rest since they haven't come back. Luke offers his help and goes out with Alden.

Later, the others arrive at Hilltop with Jesus' body and the captive girl, causing Tara to look in sadness at the sight of her friend's corpse. Tammy tells Tara that the Hilltop will now look to her for leadership, reminding her that includes getting justice for Jesus. Tara affirms she understands.

Afterward, Tara, Daryl and Michonne interrogate the girl. She claims to not have a name and that her group were good people just trying to survive. Michonne asks if her people know about Hilltop but the girl begs to be left alone. Outside, Michonne tells Daryl and Tara she's heading back to Alexandria. Tara agrees and tells her she's going to allow Magna's group to stay because it's what Jesus would have done.

A while later, a funeral is held for Jesus and everyone take turns hammering the nails in his coffin. Tara looks in sadness and puts the final nail.


In the woods, Tara leads Magna and her group in the search for Alden and Luke. They find a group of walkers feasting on their horses and kill them, while checking they aren't Whisperers. Connie notices that the horses were cut open and skinned with knives. Tara realizes that Lydia lied about it just being her mother out there and decides they should go back to Hilltop until they find out what this is.

The next day, Tara watches from a guard post as Magna and Yumiko return to Hilltop. Yumiko apologizes to Tara for leaving and Tara tells her to talk to her next time. Suddenly, Yumiko spots a small group of Whisperers approaching Hilltop as guards grab Kelly to get her inside, while Connie hides in the cornfield.

Tara calls out to Daryl and Magna below to join them on the guard post. In front of the gate, Alpha leads a group of Whisperers. She introduces herself and tells them she just wants her daughter back.  


In a flashback, Tara and Jesus ride up to meet Carol, Ezekiel, and Jerry on a clearing in the woods to trade some medicine. Tara tells them that she has left Alexandria and hands Ezekiel the community charter before leaving.

In the present, at Hilltop, Tara listens as Alpha and the Whisperers wait for them to bring Lydia to her. Daryl asks them to leave and Alpha signals for more Whisperers to show up. Magna asks Alpha if they killed their people. Alpha says no and promises if they don’t bring her Lydia there will be conflict. Daryl then decides to walk outside to talk to Alpha face to face, to which Tara is unsure of.

From the guard post, Tara watches as Daryl walks outside and Alpha instructs one of her people to bring someone. Daryl informs Alpha he’s ready to fight her people to ensure she doesn’t get Lydia back, when he then spots one of the Whisperers with a baby. Alpha explains they’re animals and “animals have babies.” Suddenly, a couple of whisperers bring up a tied up Alden and Luke. Alpha offers to trade both of them for her daughter. 

Inside, Daryl informs Enid he’s going to make the trade when Magna says Lydia and Henry are missing. Tara tries to tell him they need to do something and he tells everyone to split up and find them. Later, Lydia and Henry return to Hilltop and Daryl goes outside to make the trade. 

From the gates, Tara watches as Daryl hands Lydia over to Alpha in exchange for Alden and Luke, who are embraced by Enid and Magna's group. Lydia apologizes to her mother and Alpha smacks her across the face, ordering her to address her as Alpha like everyone else. She then smiles at Daryl as they leave.  

At night, Tara talks with Daryl and watches as he sets off to search for Henry.


On the road, Tara and Magna’s group clear a tree from their path to the Kingdom to ensure the roads are cleared for Alden's convoy carrying the food and trade goods for the fair. Kelly lets Tara know she’s worried about Connie, but she assures her she’s fine with Daryl. 

Later, a small herd of walkers approaches the group. They get in position and remind themselves to watch for the Whisperers. Suddenly, the Highwaymen ride up on horses and introduce themselves to Tara after helping to take down the herd. They then escort them to the Kingdom, having accepted Carol's deal.

In the Kingdom, Tara greets Carol and Ezekiel. They ask her where Henry and Daryl are, but Tara admits she thought they’d be there by now.

"The Calm Before"

In the Kingdom, Tara watches from the crowd as Ezekiel declares they’ve finally accomplished Rick, Carl, and Jesus' dreams of reuniting the communities. “Let the fair of a new beginning begin!” Ezekiel says as everyone celebrates and applauds. She then sees as Daryl, Michonne, and the convoy arrive. Tara is glad to see the group together again, but spots Lydia among them. “The plan was to bring Henry…just Henry” she says angrily to Daryl.

Inside the theater, Tara and the other leaders listen as Michonne says she’s finally ready for Alexandria to help out. “We’re here now,” she says. Gabriel announces Alexandria is willing to grant asylum to Lydia, but Tara warns if her mother retaliates it’ll be against Hilltop. Michonne reminds her that none of them were trusted when they were first introduced to Rick’s group, and Tara relents.

They all agree to send some of their own to Hilltop to guard against any potential attacks from the Whisperers and Michonne decides to re-establish the charter, establishing that an attack against Hilltop counts as an attack against all of them. Ezekiel then retrieves the original charter as Tara and Michonne finally make up. They all sign the charter, and Michonne tells Gabriel he should sign for Alexandria as the head of the council.

Later, Tara walks with a group who is going to Hilltop and leave some soldiers in case of a possible attack. She decides to stay instead and leave later and then fist bumps her companions as they leave for the woods.

At the fair, Tara talks with Gabriel and Rachel about looking for areas for the residents to train in case of a fight. Gabriel then tells her he thinks she's a good leader and she knows it. Tara smiles and then goes to gear up to go with a second escort to Hilltop. Somehow, Tara is among the residents kidnapped by Alpha and taken away to a stable in the woods.

In the stable, Tara alongside the other tied up residents are about to be attacked by the Whisperers but are found by Ozzy, Alek, and D.J., giving the group a chance to fight back. In the middle of the chaos, Alpha arrives and the group is subdued and then killed, only leaving Siddiq alive as a witness. Later, Alpha puts Tara's decapitated head on one of the several pikes used for the Whisperers' border.

The next day, Daryl, Michonne, Carol, Siddiq, and Yumiko find the border and watch in horror at the victims, a reanimated Tara being among them. 

Later, in the Kingdom, Siddiq delivers the tragic news to the crowd, tells them how brave everyone was in their final moments and how they all fought back. He encourages everyone to remember the fallen as brave heroes and to honor them. 


Killed By
  • Alpha (Alive, Off-Screen)

In order to mark a border between the land belonging to the Whisperers and the communities, Alpha disguises herself and infiltrates the fair to kidnapp several residents. Afterward, she decapitates them and then places their heads on wooden pikes to mark the border, with Tara being among them.

After finding the border, her zombified head is put down by either Daryl, Carol, Michonne, Siddiq, or Yumiko.

However, during the prison assault when Philip decapitates Hershel, Tara seems to grow afraid and disgusted by him. Tara later expresses deep regret for ever trusting him. It is later shown that Tara was told of Phillip's previous identity as "The Governor". In "Swear", when Cyndie states that nobody is evil and that they just decide to forget who they are, Tara corrects her by saying that some people are evil and that Tara herself has seen it (she was most likely referring to Philip given that she had witnessed him decapitate the good-natured Hershel Greene in cold-blood and for no good reason whatsoever).


"We have to stay here, it's too late, you understand me? You stay behind me, and if we get separated, you just run somewhere safe and hide, you hear me? You go someplace safe and hide, and I will find you when this is all over. I will find you. "
—Alisha to Tara[src]

While Lilly Chambler heals some wounds on Alisha's hands, Tara comments on her rifle, saying its not good in the field, and that she is more of a "Smith and Wesson gal" herself. Alisha asks if she is always so full of shit, in which Tara replies yes. Later they are seen sleeping together and hanging out together, implying they have started a relationship. Tara's opinion of fighting the prison quickly changes after the Governor kills Hershel; Alisha's doesn't. Though Tara pleads with her, that they shouldn't have to fight, Alisha talks her out of it. Instead, she reminds her of their plan to meet in the forest after the chaos dies down. Tara revealed in "Us" that she knows that Alisha is dead.

Caesar Martinez

"Wait, your father was a Catholic priest? So the father became a daddy?"
—Tara chatting with Martinez[src]

Initially, Martinez was surprised to see Tara and her family with "Brian," but he agreed to let them join the camp. Tara and Martinez formed a friendly, mutually respectful relationship during their time at the camp. As the group bonded over drinks, she praised him and his leadership. Tara was shocked when she learned of Martinez' death.

Mitch Dolgen

"You. Pick up your weapon! Fight, now!"
—Mitch telling Tara to fight[src]

Tara doesn't say much about Mitch, though it can be assumed she was grateful to him and his fellow survivors for saving her family. However, when Tara expresses her dismay of Pete taking over the camp, Mitch silences her and starts a fight with her, but Lilly steps in. This was most likely the start of why Tara didn't like the new camp. During the assault on the prison, Mitch becomes angry at Tara for doing nothing, and orders her to fight.

Pete Dolgen

"You can't just take over!"
—Tara to Pete[src]

Tara doesn't say much about Pete, though it can be assumed she was grateful to him and his fellow survivors for saving her family. When Pete announces that he will take over as the leader of the camp, Tara expresses dismay over him taking leadership of the camp, and says that he can't take over. This results in Mitch silencing her and starting a fight with Tara, but Lilly managed to step in. Before returning to her business, Tara glares angrily at Pete until Mitch shouts for her to move in her face.

Rick Grimes

"Tara, what the hell?! You almost died once for these people already!"
—Rick scolding Tara for making the risky decision to shoot walkers while hanging from Alexandria's walls to save Spencer.[src]

Rick first interacted with Tara during the prison attack in "Too Far Gone", asking her if she was okay with attacking and taking over the prison. After the rescue from Terminus, Rick interacted with Tara again as he could tell that Tara was worried while she watched Glenn and Maggie hugging. Rick forgives her for her involvement in the prison attack, saying that he could tell she didn't want to be there and it's why he tried to reach out to her while he was negotiating with The Governor. The two seem to be on good terms as he accepts her as a member of the group and fist bumps her back when she reaches out to him. In "Heads Up" Rick and Tara's relationship seems to be on good terms. Rick scolds Tara for attepmting to save Spencer from the walkers, which Tara replies by flipping him off. Their relationship seems repaired by the end of the episode, as Rick apologizes to her, which she accepts.

Glenn Rhee

"Rule number one of scavenging. There’s nothing left in this world that isn't hidden."
—Glenn to Tara and Maggie[src]

Glenn and Tara became great friends in the time that they knew each other despite their opposing relations to different factions.

In "Inmates", Glenn finds Tara closed off in a fenced off area of the prison courtyard. He goes back for her and convinces her to help him, even though he knows she was part of the destruction of the prison. Glenn and Tara discuss what happened and she realized they shouldn't have trusted "Brian" when he decapitated an old man and she is the one who has to tell Glenn that Hershel (Glenn's Father-in-Law) was killed. They discuss Maggie who Glenn wants her to help him find Maggie, but Tara can't understand why. Glenn tells her he doesn't want her help, but in his weakened state he needs it, they are interrupted by a walker attack and Glenn collapses of fatigue. Tara is shown to be apologetic for her role in the prison assault and helps save his life. Their relationship improves significantly in "Claimed"; Glenn seems to genuinely trust Tara by the end of the episode, and Tara even assisted him in getting Abraham to stop the truck so he could go back and look for Maggie. In "Us", Abraham mistook Tara for having romantic feelings for Glenn, which he soon realized wasn't the case. Tara is also shown to be feeling very guilty and in a great deal of debut to Glenn since even when she injuries her leg she continues walking and follows him into a dark and dangerous tunnel, in the tunnel she is trapped by fallen debris and the walkers move in, Glenn refuses to abandon her and fights off the walkers until they are rescued by more of the group. When Glenn is reunited with the others he decides not to mention Tara's involvement in the prison attack so she can have a fresh start with them.

After the group's escape from Terminus, Glenn and Tara continue to be close and have gone on numerous supply runs. While she was gone, she had no knowledge of his tragic death when he was captured alongside fellow group members by Negan and the Saviors. Tara is seen to be heartbroken by his death on her return to Alexandria.

Maggie Greene

"You're here with us, now."
—Maggie to Tara[src]

Maggie and Tara didn't know each other but Maggie was grateful to Tara for saving Glenn and gives her a hug. In "A", Maggie notices Rick looking at Tara and says, "they're our friends", showing that she trusts her. After the group's escape from the train car, Tara spends more time alone with Maggie and Glenn, which increases her guilt about her role in Hershel's death. Once Tara tells her about being with the Governor, Maggie forgives her. She has since accompanied her and Glenn on runs. In First Time Again Maggie tells Tara that she is one of the most important people in the world to her and the two hug, suggesting a now very close friendship.

Abraham Ford

"You got a damn mouth on you, you know that?... What else you got?"
—Abraham to Tara[src]

Despite having a rough and disagreeable first meeting, Tara and Abraham seem to have a good relationship, as she follows his "orders", even though Tara questions why he smiles while killing walkers and doubts Abraham's intent to assist Eugene to Washington. While on watch Abraham tells Tara when they first met he thought she was in love with Glenn until he caught her looking down Rosita's shirt and realized she was a lesbian. Tara didn't get mad at Abraham after he accidentally pushed her when he was protecting Eugene.

When Tara leaves for a supply run, she is unaware of Abraham's execution at the hands of Negan. When she learned of the news on her return, she was devastated to hear about his unfortunate demise.

Eugene Porter

"Thank God; nothing happened to your hair."
—Tara to Eugene[src]

Eugene and Tara have become best friends in their time together. While they don't speak a lot during their first meeting, it is shown in "Us", that Eugene spends time talking to her about video games. When Abraham decides to let Tara and Glenn go through the tunnel alone, Eugene confesses to Tara that he finds her hot. Tara explains she "likes girls" and Eugene claims he already knew that. Later, Eugene tricks Rosita into driving to the tunnel exit so he can make sure Tara and Glenn made it out safely. Eugene and Tara interact several times throughout the journey to Terminus, Gabriel's Church and the road to Washington. Eugene confides in Tara that he was the one to disable the bus carrying them to Washington, and despite her best judgement, Tara keeps his secret.

During their time at Alexandria, Eugene goes on a run with Glenn, Tara, Noah, with two Alexandria residents to find a device that would restore power to Alexandria. Tara is severely injured in an explosion, and due to his new found friendship with Tara, Eugene has a change of demeanor. He vowed to Glenn that he'd keep Tara safe, and surrounded by walkers, Eugene picks Tara up and exits the warehouse in which they'd entered to find the device; killing walkers as he brings her to the van outside. Later when Tara wakes from her injuries Eugene greets her with much happiness.

As the series progressed Tara has spent less time with Eugene. It is assumed they still have a healthy relationship.

Rosita Espinosa

"I'm sorry, Tara."
—Rosita consoling Tara about Denise's death[src]

It is mentioned that Tara is attracted to Rosita, during a conversation with Abraham he reveals that he saw her staring down Rosita's shirt at her breasts. Rosita seems protective of Tara because when Tara agreed to carry on walking for Glenn after she injured her leg, Rosita accused Glenn of taking advantage of Tara's debt to him. Tara has often been seen close to Rosita when in the group and even peeped in on her and Abraham having sex, showing how close they've become.

In "Conquer", Rosita cares for Tara while she is in the infirmary and is visibly joyful when she wakes up, offering a warm smile.

In "Start to Finish", Tara motivates Rosita not to give up on Abraham or Alexandria. She also calls her gorgeous, reaffirming her sexual attraction and possible romantic feelings towards Rosita.

In "New Best Friends", Tara and Rosita get into an argument about going to search for and instead of going to back to Alexandria, despite Rick and Aaron being hurt.

In "The First Day of the Rest of Your Life", after Rosita gets shot by the Scavengers Tara gets her to the infirmary.

In "Time for After", Tara and Rosita argue on wether they should attack the sanctuary by driving the truck into the building and Rosita says it's too risky and leaves.

Bob Stookey

Tara and Bob met for the first time on the way to Terminus in an attempt to reunite Glenn and Maggie. Tara is now ready to help Sasha to bring Bob into the church since the group Gareth cut his leg and threw it on the ground outside the church. Later Tara is present with the rest of the group in the sacristy of the church to say goodbye for the last time to Bob since he was bitten by a zombie.


Tara and Noah didn't interact much, but it is assumed they trust each other. Noah joins Glenn, Tara, Eugene, Aiden and Nicholas on a run for micro-inverters, suggested by Eugene to repair the power grid, at a nearby supply store. Before they go, Tara teases Noah about Holly and playfully threatens to hurt him. During the drive there, Tara bothers Noah to tell her what he and Reg were talking about, if it was about Holly, but Noah resents. The group arrive at the supply store and is impressed with Noah's accuracy as he shoots a walker from quite a distance. She was unaware of Noah's death initially due to the fact she was in a coma, but asked for him soon after she woke up, and was shown to be deeply saddened when she found out.

Denise Cloyd

Tara and Denise, in the time that they knew each other, developed a strong relationship. During the attack of the Wolves, Tara encouraged Denise while she tried to save Holly. When Denise failed, Tara went to see how she was coping. Later on, outside, Denise kissed Tara on the lips, implying she might have feelings for her. Tara was flattered and surprised by Denise's kiss. When Denise is taken hostage by the Alpha Wolf, Tara appears heartbroken as he has the knife to her and is the first one to turn over her gun when he orders them to. When the Alpha Wolf takes Denise outside with him, Tara looks at them devastated as they go outside to the walkers. In "No Way Out", Tara is eager to go out to find and save Denise, despite the large amounts of zombies. Tara is relieved to find out Denise made it safely to the infirmary. Between "No Way Out" and "The Next World," Denise and Tara developed a loving relationship.  

However, when Tara leaves with Heath to go on a supply run, Denise is killed by Dwight in her absence. Tara was never aware of her girlfriend's tragic demise among the executions of close friends Abraham and Glenn until she returned home from her supply run. Tara lies despondent in Alexandria's medical facility in which Denise used to work. 


"You have to swear that you'll never come back, that you'll never tell anyone about us, not even to your own people."
—Cyndie to Tara[src]

Tara is saved by Cyndie many times when she arrives at Oceanside. When Rachel attempts to kill Tara, Cyndie stops her, telling her that she's alive. Rachel tells her that they're supposed to, but Cyndie refuses. This causes Rachel to tell the members of Oceanside about Tara.

When the members of Oceanside are surrounding Tara, Cyndie stops them, telling them to let her live. After much disagreement with her grandmother, Natania. They finally decide on letting Tara stay. After Tara attempts to leave and is almost shot by Beatrice, Cyndie tackles her, giving Tara a chance to run off. When Tara is surrounded by walkers, Cyndie helps kill them to save her. As Tara flees back to Alexandria, she looks back and see's Cyndie being captured by Kathy and Beatrice.

Daryl Dixon

Daryl and Tara are on good terms and seem to care about each other. In "Hearts Still Beating," Tara hugged Daryl when the group arrived at Hilltop. In "Time for After" Tara helped Daryl to attack the Sanctuary by providing the covering fire.

Gabriel Stokes

Despite Gabriel trying to get Tara and her group kicked out of Alexandria, the two are shown to be friends. This is shown when Tara opens up to Gabriel about how she lied to Denise before heading out to take on the Saviors' outpost. Tara is also shown to be in disbelief upon learning that Gabriel had disappeared, along with everything in the pantry, noting that Gabriel had found his courage.

Morgan Jones

Although the two have barely interacted, Tara and Morgan are shown to be friendly towards each other. Despite Morgan being involved in Denise's capture, Tara doesn't seem to hold this against them, as she is shown to be happy and hugs him when she sees him upon arrival at The Kingdom.


"After this, I'm going to kill him."
—Tara to Daryl about Dwight[src]

Tara possessed a hatred for Dwight due to his direct role in Denise's death.

After the Saviors assaulted the Hilltop and Tara was shot (and presumably infected) by Dwight, she started to believe that maybe Dwight deserved a chance to became a part of Rick's group. In "Still Gotta Mean Something" Tara decided to end her vengeance on Dwight even though she still remembers what he did.




As with most newcomers, Tara was slightly distrustful of Yumiko and her friends at first, but was willing to give them a chance, since Michonne vouched for them.

When Luke went missing, and Yumiko went against Tara's instructions to search for him, Tara, understanding how she felt, didn't hold this against her, simply telling Yumiko to talk to her next time. Tara seems to have accepted Yumiko and her friends into Hilltop, telling her that she doesn't want to see anyone dead, including them.

Yumiko seems shocked and horrified by Tara's death.






Suprisingly Tara and Carol haven't interacted much. However they appear to have a good healthy relationship.

Carl Grimes

Tara and Carl have not interacted much, but upon returning to Gabriel's church, Tara quickly embraced Carl, suggesting that they had become somewhat close after escaping Terminus.

Tara was deeply saddened by Carl's death.
