Wayne Dunlap was a citizen living in Atlanta, Georgia. He appears as a walker and is killed in the episode "Guts" by T-Dog and is used by Rick Grimes and Glenn Rhee to disguise themselves as walkers.

Pre-Apocalypse

Atlanta, Georgia

Very little is known about Wayne's life before or as the outbreak began, other than that he was born in 1979 and had a girlfriend, wife, daughter, or sister named Rachel. He is also an organ donor.

Post-Apocalypse

Season 1

"Guts"

When he died while attempting to be evacuated from the city, Wayne had 28 dollars in his pocket, as well as a picture of a girl named Rachel.

Wayne was part of the herd roaming Atlanta. He and another walker attacked Rick Grimes and Glenn Rhee in an alleyway, but were ambushed and beaten to death by Morales and T-Dog.

Later, in a desperate attempt to escape the department store, Wayne's corpse was dragged inside the store, and gutted and dismembered by Rick and Glenn, but not before Rick looked through the contents of his wallets to show that he used to be a human as well. They used his decomposing innards and blood to camouflage themselves in order to escape the store. Rick said that if he ever found his family he would tell them about Wayne, although it is unknown if he ever did.

Using Wayne's guts, Rick and Glenn managed to get most of the way to a nearby construction site before rain washed the guts off of them. However, it allowed them to get close enough to run the remaining distance and steal a cube van to rescue the others.

Killed Victims

This list shows the victims Wayne has killed:

  • At least one survivor (Infected)
  • Possibly a few zombies

It is assumed that Wayne had killed at least one other person as a zombie due to the blood on his shirt that did not belong to him.

Death

Killed By

It is unknown how Wayne died, although the most likely explanation was that he was bitten and succumbed to the infection when Atlanta was overrun.

Glenn met up with Rick and was bringing him back to the group when Wayne was in a back alley. Both T-Dog and Morales came out and beat both Wayne and another walker to death. Later, the survivors used Wayne's body by dismembering it and placing his entrails all over themselves to pose as walkers and escape the city.

Trivia

  • Wayne was an organ donor before the outbreak took place.
    • This is ironic as Wayne's organs are then removed and smothered on Rick and Glenn to cover their scent. This may actually be what Glenn meant rather than that Wayne was an actual organ donor.
  • While using Wayne's guts to move through the walkers undetected, Glenn has Wayne's intestines slung around his neck while Rick has Wayne's cut-off hands.
