Season 4

"30 Days Without An Accident"

This woman is sitting with a man and two children eating breakfast and greets Daryl as he walks by.


This woman managed to survive the attack on Cell Block D and was seen mourning the death of her child who was covered in a blanket in his cell. While Rick informs Carl, Michonne, and Maggie of what happened, the woman walks past them, weeping and holding the bloodied blanket that covered Owen.


This woman is a part of a group of residents, consisting of Jeanette, Noris' son, a Woodbury resident, and another woman, brought to Cell Block A to be quarantined.


When Hershel is attacked by a zombified woman in Cell Block A, this woman comes to his aid. However, the woman is accidentally killed when another man's gun goes off, striking her. Moments later, the woman reanimates and is lured into the observation tower with the two other zombified patients. She is then killed by Hershel with a shotgun.

She reanimates and attacks Hershel with two other walkers who kills them with a shotgun.


TV Series

Season 4


  • The crying mom was supposed to appear outside working in a garden with her son but the scene was cut.[1]
  • There was a brief scene from "Infected" that showed the mother carrying her son's body as she exited the cell block that was removed from the final episode but was included in the Comic Con trailer for Season 4.
  • This character's name refers to when she cried over her son's death in "Infected", despite the fact she was not credited. It wasn't until "Internment" that she was credited, and she was not crying nor was her deceased son involved in any way.
