It is unknown where Willy lived before being sent to Ericson's Boarding School; however, he claims to have been sent there for "chronic masturbation". Due to the fact he would have been at the most five years old when he was sent to Ericson's, it is unclear whether Willy was joking or not.
During the early days of the outbreak, the teachers at the school left Willy along with rest of the children to fend for themselves. Willy was often looked after by Mitch, and they soon became close friends.
Willy is first encountered by Clementine while Marlon is giving her a tour around the school. He is visibly both fascinated and shocked at the presence of Clementine, staring at her until she either asks him to stop, greets him, or threatens him. Either way, he ends up running away nervously. Later on, he calls Marlon to the gate, alerting him about the walkers.
In the evening, Willy is seen relaxing with Mitch. When Clementine and AJ speak to them, depending on Clementine's response to AJ swearing earlier, Willy will either laugh at Mitch being corrected by AJ for swearing or think AJ is hilarious by repeating what Mitch said.
He is last seen among the rest of the group during the standoff between Clementine and Marlon. He remains mostly silent during the entirety of it, however, he does blurt out about how the situation is "fucked up".
Willy is first seen in flashbacks depicting Marlon's death. Then, he is seen at Marlon and Brody's funeral. As a result of AJ shooting Marlon, he is visibly angry at both AJ and Clementine, and it can be assumed he voted against them staying. He is later seen on guard duty and impulsively fires an arrow at James , confusing him with an actual walker, though he misses.
Later on, Willy is seen arguing with Aasim about setting up traps for the upcoming Delta raid. Aasim is heard insulting Willy for proposing the idea of using log traps to defend against the raiders, while Aasim claims they should use dufflebags filled with bricks. Eventually, Clementine will need to make the decision on with trap is more practical. Either way, Willy will lose his temper on Aasim and end up punching him in the abdomen before rushing off.
He is then seen being greeted by Aasim after Louis' game of truth or dare. He is asked by Aasim if he would like to help set up the whichever trap Clementine agreed on, to which Willy agrees and they make up.
Willy is lastly seen toward the end of the episode, moving stealthy along with Mitch during the Delta raid. After Mitch is suddenly killed by Lilly, he is clearly upset and can later be seen mourning over his body.
Willy has a much larger role in this episode. The morning after the events of "Suffer The Children", Willy is seen mourning over Mitch's body while Ruby digs a hole to bury him in. Tenn offers to help Willy carry Mitch to his grave, but Willy shoves him down in anger. Willy yells at Tenn, claiming he is responsible for Mitch's death by ruining the plan. Tenn runs off in guilt.
He is later seen walking to the Delta's boat docked in the river outside the safezone along with Clementine, AJ, and Louis/Violet (Determinant). He expresses his frustration against Tenn and is threatened by AJ. The group set up in some brush near the riverbank and plot the search and rescue of Aasim, Omar, and Louis/Violet (Determinant). Clementine can visit Willy to see if he has gotten any ideas, to which Willy will say they can release the raft holding the raiders' supplies down the river as a distraction. AJ later speaks to Clem about Willy, claiming he wanted to punch Willy in the face for saying what he did about Tenn.
Willy is later seen in the Headmaster's office, showing Clementine a collection of books on ships he had been reading. He proposes a plan to use one of Mitch's bombs to blow up the boiler room of the Delta's ship in order to prevent them from returning. He then confesses his guilt for lashing out at Tenn for Mitch's death, and is told by Clementine to apologize directly to him.
He follows Clementine down to Ruby's scheduled party, where he approaches Tenn with the homemade bomb and they make up. Clementine mingles with them soon after, where Willy suggests they give the bomb a name. Clementine can optionally give the bomb a selection of possible names, one of which being "Willy Junior". The group then gets together to play a game, where Willy jokingly claims he was sent to Ericson's for "chronic masturbation", to which the group sits in an awkward silence.
Willy is lastly seen later that night, where the group sets out to rescue the captured students. Upon seeing James, he is fascinated at his face mask, calling it "cool" and asking if he could try it on. Once Clementine begins the operation, Willy does his part by sending himself along with the raft carrying their supplies down the river. A raider notices and chases him down, allowing Clementine, AJ, and Louis/Violet to progress down the pier. It is unknown what happens to Willy for the remainder of the episode.
Willy appears near the wreck of the Delta's ship, defending Ruby from walkers. When Sullene spots him, she orders Gina to open fire on him. Willy takes cover beside the carriage. After Minvera sets off a grenade, the horse carrying the carriage panics and runs off with Willy and the rest of the group, besides Clementine, AJ, and Tenn.
He is lastly seen toward the end of the episode, dining at the picnic table with the others. He tries to amuse the group by shooting a piece of food at Omar. Omar stares Willy down before breaking out in laughter. If AJ burps (Determinant) Willy will laugh hysterically.
