Since then, he has been roaming the area. While Aaron and Daryl chase after him, they are attacked by walkers. Buttons is swarmed by walkers and killed before he can be saved. Aaron then shoots the horse in the head to end his suffering due to his mortal wounds caused by the walkers.

    • This episode wrecked me. Worst death so far. No human death bothered me as much as this. RIP. I really hope we can ID which IRL horse played ...
