"Because I want him stopped. I want Negan dead."
—Dwight to Rick about why he wants to help[src]

Dwight, also known to go by the initial "D.", is a main character and a former antagonist as well as a survivor of the outbreak in AMC's The Walking Dead. He is a high-ranking member of The Saviors who serves as an antagonist of the second half of Season 6 and the first half of Season 7. After his ex-wife Sherry released Daryl and fled the Sanctuary, Dwight becomes estranged with life as a Savior, and decides to ally with Rick to dethrone Negan.

Pre-Apocalypse

Virginia

Dwight was born in the early 1980's, he experienced an average childhood where he grew up in a small town in Virginia[2]. During his youth, he was taught by his his late grandfather in the art of woodcarving, which became a valued hobby of Dwight's and thus he would practice the skill in his spare time[3]. As a young adult, he later met and befriended a local female babysitter named Sherry, originally, when the pair began dating, Dwight was noted for having problems with his memory, and thus would generally fail to remember the pleasant times they both shared as a couple, which caused great frustration on his part[4]. Due to his memory problems, he used post it notes to remind him to do certain tasks.

Eventually the pair soon fell in love and got married where the two lived together in a single-story house located somewhere in Virginia, through their marriage, Dwight befriended his sister-in-law Tina who had diabetes and required insulin in order to treat her condition[5]. Over time, Dwight and Sherry gradually aspired to start a family of their own and thus would attempt to conceive a child together, however their attempts ultimately proved futile[6].

Post-Apocalypse

Washington D.C

During the onset of the outbreak, Dwight was present alongside Sherry when the initial chaos and devastation occurred. The pair were forced to flee into a nearby forest which had become infested with a large herd of walkers. In an act of desperation, the pair utilized a large truck through opening the vehicle's valve in order to spread a trail of gas throughout the forest which they ignited to create a massive wildfire that engulfed the pursuing walkers.

After this event, Dwight and Sherry managed to reconnect with Tina who was located in Washington D.C at the time. At some point later, the trio somehow came into contact with a group of survivors known as The Saviors, whom they subsequently joined and settled into a compound known as The Sanctuary. Originally, the trio worked together to earn 'points' in exchange for supplies; over time, however, they grew to become fearful of the community leader, Negan, due his violent sociopathic actions and oppression.

Eventually, Tina fell behind on points and became unable to purchase the insulin which she so desperately required. She was offered the opportunity to marry Negan and become part of his harem, in exchange for no longer operating in a point capacity and therefore always having access to medication. However, acting on impulse, Dwight personally stole the medication whereupon he, Sherry and Tina fled from The Sanctuary. To their misfortune, they were begrudgingly forced to travel on foot with only a limited amount of supplies as well as a lone pistol for protection. At some point later the three managed to take temporary refuge in the forest which they had previously inhabited.

Season 6

"Always Accountable"

Daryl Dixon, Sasha Williams and Abraham Ford are intercepted by a group of survivors apparently led by Wade. When Sasha and Abraham are split from Daryl, they deduce that they were looking for someone else. When Daryl wheels his motorcycle far ahead of the survivors following him into a burnt out forest to hide from them, he walks straight across the road in the other side of the forest. He collapses in fatigue due to his injuries he sustained falling off his motorcycle, when he gets up and decides to try and find the others. He walks past several charred corpses, some still undead and as he gets closer into the heart of the forest he hears noises. He hides his motorcycle and vest under a fallen tree branch and finds two women, Sherry and Tina, who proceed to tell Daryl "You found us" and "We earned what we took." As he hears a noise behind him Daryl turns around and Dwight knocks him out with a baseball bat.

As Daryl is tied up against a tree, Dwight (who refers himself as "D") is keeping an eye on him until the next morning when he forces Daryl to get up and move via gunpoint to help look for 'Patty'. Dwight proceeds to accuse Daryl of being one of them. He keeps Daryl at gunpoint and on the move and Dwight proceeds to tell Daryl it was him that burnt the forest down, to kill the nearby walkers, by driving a gas tank along the woods and setting it alight. They soon reach a fuel distribution plant overrun with walkers, when Dwight, Sherry and Tina look on in horror and claim that Patty is gone. All three of them are suddenly dampened and Tina says that she'll return to the camp and claims that the others will stop looking. As Tina faints, Daryl uses this as a distraction and grabs the duffel bag with his crossbow and runs into the woods with Dwight shooting at him.

He runs far enough into the forest to dive into a small crevice and untie his hands and proceed to try and reach Abraham and Sasha with his walkie-talkie. Just as he catches his breath, he hears a nearby walker approaching and struggles to get his crossbow out the duffel; he eventually succeeds and shoots the walker. As he does he looks down at the contents fallen out of the bag and notices a cooler filled with insulin. Tina is a diabetic. He returns to Dwight and the rest and demands Dwight's gun, which Dwight gives him, and returns the insulin. He is about to leave until Wade shows up with several others in cars and begins searching for Dwight, Sherry and Tina and what they took. Dwight shouts at Wade, telling him he isn't going back and that his people shouldn't be trusted.

Daryl feels guilty and returns to help them and returns Dwight's gun. Daryl distracts Cam who gets bitten on the arm by a hidden walker. Without any hesitation, Cam asks for it to be cut off there and then; Daryl knows these people are bad news. They then give up the search, with Wade telling Cam, "He only wants ass that's willing". Dwight is surprised at Daryl for helping them because he thought he was one of them. Soon, they stumble across a melted greenhouse. Dwight feels guilty because he burnt the forest down and they knew the people residing there.

Tina finds two corpses engulfed in hardened molten glass, who were friends of theirs. Tina proceeds to cry and grieve, until the corpses suddenly turn into walkers, breaking out and biting Tina to her death. Daryl kills the walkers and Dwight, Daryl or Sherry put Tina down before she can turn. As Dwight is burying Tina, Daryl asks him the three questions. When asked how many walkers he has killed, Dwight says a lot, couple of dozen at least. When asked how many people and why he responds with none and that when you kill in this world, there's no going back.

Satisfied, Daryl invites Dwight and Sherry to Alexandria to which they accept. All is well until Dwight holds Daryl at gunpoint again, apologizes and takes his bike and crossbow.

As they say they're sorry, Daryl mutters "You're gonna be" and the pair proceed to ride away on Daryl's motorcycle.

Dwight and Sherry decided to return to the Sanctuary as they felt it was their best chance for survival. Upon their return, Negan was infuriated that they had gotten Tina killed and about the maiming his men suffered while going after them. As punishment, Negan was about to kill Dwight, until Sherry offered to marry him if he spared Dwight. Negan agreed, but felt that it was not enough punishment, so he burned the left side Dwight's face with a clothing iron. After his maiming, Dwight spent a long amount of time in solitary confinement. At some point he was let out and became one of Negan's top guys and no longer had to work for point and was given private living quarters, but he was now separated from Sherry.

"Twice as Far"

A little over two months after his encounter with Daryl, Dwight reappears alongside Neil and several Saviors after having accidentally shot Denise Cloyd through the back of the head in an attempt to kill Daryl. Emerging from the brush, he presents to Daryl and Rosita Espinosa a bound Eugene Porter, whose life he offers to spare if they take him and his men back to Alexandria for their supplies. Dwight begins to taunt Daryl by explaining how he is still trying to become accustomed to handling his crossbow, reasoning that his poor handling is what caused him to miss his shot and strike Denise.

After more tense confrontation, Eugene speaks up and gives away the position of the nearby Abraham Ford, pointing towards a nearby stack of oil barrels. Dwight orders his men to scout the area, before he is suddenly attacked by Eugene with a powerful bite to the crotch, causing him to scream in pain and drop the crossbow. He and his men are then fired upon by Abraham, Rosita and Daryl, and a mass firefight between the two groups ensues, resulting in the deaths of Neil and several Saviors, the wounding of Eugene, and culminating in Dwight retreating with the remainder of his group.

"East"

A day after Denise's death, Daryl goes out to find and kill Dwight, blaming himself for Denise's demise. Glenn Rhee, Michonne and Rosita go after him. After Rosita splits from the two of them, Glenn and Michonne are ambushed and captured by Dwight and a few Saviors. Some time later, Daryl and Rosita find them gagged next to a group of Saviors resting. Daryl tries to sneak up on the Saviors to save them, but Dwight and another Savior appear behind him and Rosita. Dwight greets Daryl and then shoots him as he turns around, assuring him that he will be fine.

"Last Day on Earth"

After Rick Grimes, his son Carl, Abraham, Sasha, Aaron, Maggie Greene and Eugene are ambushed and surrounded by a large group of Saviors, Dwight appears and brings out a captured Glenn, Michonne, Rosita, and an injured Daryl from a cargo truck. When Glenn tries to intervene to stop Negan from hurting Maggie, Dwight jumps up and subdues him before lining him up again. He is present when Negan beats one of Rick's group to death with his baseball bat, Lucille.

Season 7

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

Dwight briefly appears standing along with the rest of the Saviors. When Daryl struck Negan across the face, he asks if Negan wants him to kill Daryl, as he looms over him with his crossbow; however, Negan spares Daryl, and drags him back to the lineup. Later Negan asks Dwight to put Daryl in a van, which he does.

"The Cell"

At the start of the episode, Dwight watches TV, plays air hockey with Laura and carves wooden figurines. He is seen inspecting loaves of bread, and he takes one. As he makes his rounds, he searches through the belongings of a man, who tried to steal some supplies for his pregnant wife and son, where he finds pickles and mustard. Dwight grabs tomatoes from a vegetable garden and eggs from a chicken coop. Dwight, Gordon and the workers kneel as Negan passes by. He travels around the Saviors base collecting various other ingredients which he uses to make a sandwich. As he eats his sandwich, he watches distastefully as prisoners "earn points." He then makes another sandwich; unlike the care and variety of ingredients as shown previously, Dwight slaps some canned dog food between two pieces of bread which he takes to Daryl's cell. Dwight leads Daryl out of his cell and takes him to Emmett Carson’s office, where Carson has just finished examining Sherry. She recognizes Daryl, but Dwight forbids her from talking to him. She tells Dwight that her pregnancy test is negative and he leaves.

Dwight takes Daryl outside and shows him the compound’s fence-line. They watch as two workers secure a new walker outside, it’s the red-headed man from the marketplace. Dwight says Daryl will be forced to work in the yard if he doesn’t make the right choices. Back in his cell, Daryl tells Dwight that he will never kneel for Negan. “I said that, too.”, says Dwight. He shuts the door. The sound of the lock is heard and the music resumes.

Over the course of the episode, Dwight appears to be trying to "break" Daryl into servitude; Negan later approaches Dwight, who has Daryl in custody, and encourages him to be pulled aside for a talk. Once Daryl is secured back in his cell, Negan discusses their efforts in trying to break him with Dwight. As a reward, Negan offers Dwight to sleep with one of his wives with Sherry being the first option. However, Dwight declines. Negan is slightly angered by Dwight’s refusal but allows him to follow through on his choice. When news of an escaped worker comes over Dwight’s radio, Dwight offers to go to which Negan accepts. After some time he leaves to search for a man who escaped from the Saviors' base. Whilst on the road, Dwight encounters several dismembered and mutilated walkers under an overpass. He has a close brush with death as walkers fall from the overpass above, and force him to dive to the ground amidst the walkers near him.

Eventually, Dwight finds the man he is looking for. He tackles him to the ground and the two set off back to the Saviors' base. However, during the journey, Gordon has a conversation with Dwight, whereupon the man tells Dwight that there's nothing left for him back at the base, and that he'd rather die than go back. Dwight threatens him saying if he doesn't come back, he'll kill everyone the man had ever spoken to and would dig up the man's wife whose corpse would be put on display. Resigned, Gordon goes with Dwight. After a few moments, Dwight changes his mind and shoots him, giving him what he wanted.

When Dwight gets back, he finds Sherry in a stairwell and they smoke cigarettes together. “Is he good to you?” Dwight asks. “Yeah,” she says. “We did the right thing,” he tells her, “it’s a hell of a lot better than being dead.” he forces a persistent Daryl to look at a photo of Glenn's corpse taken right after his brutal death, all the while Roy Orbison's "Crying" plays. Dwight hears him sobbing from the hallway and slightly smiles and walks away. Later on, Dwight takes Daryl to Negan, who once again gives Daryl a choice. Negan explains to Daryl how Dwight became one of his top men. Dwight, Sherry and her sister Tina used to work for points. When Tina fell behind on points, on account of her costly medication, he asked her to marry him. Dwight, Sherry and Tina stole the medicine and ran away.

They returned after Tina’s death. Dwight asked for forgiveness and begged Negan not to kill Sherry. Sherry offered to marry Negan if he spared Dwight’s life. He agreed, after burning Dwight’s face with an iron. Dwight has been on board ever since. Negan tells Daryl he can be one of his top men and he can live in this apartment. “All you’ve got to do, is answer one, simple question: Who are you?” Negan asks Daryl the question, first Daryl is silent. He asks again. After a long silence, Daryl refuses to submit to Negan, Dwight takes Daryl back to his cell; where he expresses anger at Daryl, suggesting that he has some compassion for Daryl despite everything that's gone down.

At the end of the episode, Dwight is seen looking out at the fence, where Gordon's reanimated corpse snarls back at him, revealing to the audience that Dwight's kill shot was through the chest so that Dwight could bring him back anyway.

"Service"

Dwight, along with Negan arrives with a large group of over 30 Saviors; Daryl is among them, looking injured and pale. Negan demands to be let in; Spencer opens the gate for them. Rick meets Negan at the gate and notes that he came earlier than planned. Negan strides into Alexandria and thrusts Lucille into Rick's hands, saying, "Hold this."

Dwight confiscates Rosita and Spencer Monroe's guns. He taunts Rosita by taking her hat and pouring her water out before ordering them to find Daryl’s motorcycle and bring it back.

Dwight later retrieves the motorcycle from Spencer and returns Rosita’s hat. He asks if she found anything else. “Just your dead friends”, she replies. He rides up to Daryl and tells him he can have his bike back - all he has to do is say the word. Daryl remains silent, and Dwight rides off, smirking.

"Sing Me a Song"

Dwight first appears attacking Carl after he kills George and Chris. Daryl watches helplessly from the other side of the walker-encrusted fence. Negan tells Dwight to back off and offers to show Carl around the compound. Later, Dwight arrives with Daryl in tow, and witnesses the kiss between Negan and Sherry. Daryl carries a snack platter for Negan. Dwight is shown at a furnace on the factory floor, where Mark is tied to a chair. Negan reiterates the importance of rules then brands Mark's face with a hot iron as punishment for his infraction, which is how Dwight got his face burned.

Dwight and Sherry smoke cigarettes in a stairwell. She recalls that their deal with Negan was only supposed to affect them. Dwight points out that if you're still alive, it's always at someone else's expense.

Negan and Carl prepare to leave in the cargo truck. On their way out, Daryl warns Negan against hurting Carl. Negan tells Dwight to put Daryl back in his cell and drives off.

"Hostiles and Calamities"

At the Sanctuary, Dwight forces his way to the front of the crowd when a group of Saviors discovers Fat Joey’s body in the bike lot where Daryl killed him, and he immediately notices a missing motorcycle. He panics and runs through the halls of the Sanctuary, until he arrives at Daryl’s empty cell. It’s moments after his escape. Dwight grabs his walkie from his apartment and spots Daryl’s prison clothes on the floor. He finds the note that Daryl received from his liberator and studies it: “Go now.”

Dwight sits in his room, examining the handwriting on the scrap of paper he found. Gary, David and other Saviors barge in and start to beat him up as Negan watches from the doorway.

Dwight sits in Daryl’s dark cell, now his cell. Negan informs him that Sherry ran away and wonders if she helped Daryl escape. Dwight defends Sherry. Negan continues hypothesizing and questions whether Dwight changed his stripes and helped Daryl himself; he then orders Dwight to find Sherry and bring her back. In the infirmary, Emmett Carson stitches Dwight’s wounds and remarks that Sherry was soft and probably helped Daryl escape.

In a flash-forward, Dwight looks at a photo of himself and Sherry in happier times. Back in the present, Dwight retrieves his backpack from his apartment. He grabs a carton of cigarettes from a hiding spot. Inside the carton is a cigarette stained with Sherry’s lipstick. Dwight leaves the compound on a motorcycle.

Dwight rides his motorcycle through a dead suburb; he parks in front of an abandoned house and enters. He looks for Sherry in their old home, where they agreed to rendezvous if they ever got separated. He gazes at the photo of himself and Sherry in happier times. He finds a farewell note from Sherry, along with her wedding rings. She admits to freeing Daryl and apologizes for forcing Dwight into Negan’s world. Dwight is shaken with emotion; he places the rings in his cigarette carton. In Dr Carson's office, Carson treats Dwight’s wounds. Dwight tells him he killed Sherry. "She ran away from me right into a mess of dead ones, so I made it quick," he says. Carson insists people were cowards before being part of the Saviors. "We don't get to have big hearts," Carson says. "Remember that."

Dwight clipped from her farewell letter and planted in Emmett Carson’s desk. “Goodbye. -- Honey,” it reads and frames him. Negan accuses Emmett of helping Daryl escape in order to impress Sherry. He shows Emmett a note from Sherry, that Dwight planted. Emmett accuses Dwight of lying, but he quickly folds and falsely confesses when Negan threatens him with the iron. He spares him the torture, but then he grabs Emmett and throws him face-first into the furnace, burning him alive. Negan puts his arm around Dwight, saying “Good thing we have a spare Dr. Carson.”

Dwight joins Eugene on the upper stairway. Dwight asks him if he’s on board; Eugene assures him that he is. After a name exchange, Eugene ends his introduction with, “We are Negan.” To this, Dwight reluctantly replies "...yeah."

"The Other Side"

Near the end of the episode, Dwight is seen outside of the Sanctuary with Daryl's crossbow, watching Rosita from afar.

"Something They Need"

Upon their return to Alexandria, Rosita leads Rick and the others to the jail cell where Dwight is waiting. Daryl tries to attack him, but is held back by Rick and Michonne. Rosita insists Dwight wants to help them. Rick asks if that's true, and Dwight says it is. Rick pulls his gun and orders Dwight to his knees.

"The First Day of the Rest of Your Life"

Dwight is questioned for his reasoning to why the Alexandrians should trust him and he tells them that he wants Negan dead. Tara reminds Dwight that he killed Denise and he tells them that he wasn't aiming at Denise. This enrages Daryl who holds a knife near Dwight's eye, poised to kill them. 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. Dwight offers to help them lay an ambush for the Saviors who are coming to attack Alexandria and then to help them take out the Sanctuary and spread out from there until all of the Saviors are gone.

While Dwight is released to implement his plan, he returns with Negan armed with a rifle when its revealed that the Scavengers betrayed Alexandria. Dwight keeps quiet during the confrontation that follows and doesn't take part in the first gun battle.

As Negan is about to hit Carl with Lucille, Shiva is released by Ezekiel and another commotion ensures as Dwight and the rest begin to open fire and find cover. Due to the overwhelming forces of Alexandria, Hilltop and the Kingdom, Simon hops back into the truck he drove in on, along with Negan and Dwight, and drives them away from the battle, making their retreat. At the end of the episode, Dwight joins Negan alongside Simon and Eugene in addressing the Saviors as they prepare for war.

While cleaning up from the battle, Daryl finds one of Dwight's wooden figures he'd hidden while escaping. Upon the figure, Dwight left the message "didn't know" as a way of telling Daryl and the Alexandrians that he didn't intentionally betray them and wasn't aware of The Scavengers turning on Rick.

Season 8

"Mercy"

Dwight will appear in this episode.

Killed Victims

This list shows the victims Dwight has killed:

Relationships

Sherry

Being his wife, it is obvious that Dwight loves Sherry very much, and likely attempts to keep her safe, noticeably when they discover and join the Saviors' group. When Dwight possibly realizes how frightening they can be, he suggests it's not as safe as he expected for Sherry, and together they leave. It is assumed that Dwight continuously risks his own life for her, and tries to find a better life for themselves. He also helps take care of her younger diabetic sister, Tina, and comforts her when she is killed by walkers. Dwight shows his most concerned safety for Sherry when he betrays Daryl, the man who helps them escape a group of Saviors searching for them, by holding him at gunpoint and demanding for his motorcycle and crossbow. When he finally gives them up, Dwight and Sherry both get onto the motorcycle and take off, returning to the Saviors.

It is later revealed that upon returning to Negan, Dwight begged for forgiveness, so that Negan will spare Sherry. However, when Negan is about to kill Dwight, Sherry begs for Dwight's life saying that she will marry Negan if he spares Dwight. Negan agreed, but decided to punish Dwight by burning his face with an iron. After this incident, Sherry joins Negan's harem, and Dwight rises through the ranks, becoming one of Negan's lieutenants. Their relationship becomes significantly strained, as they are forbidden from intimate or romantic contact with one another, restricting their relationship to a platonic one when others are around. Ocassionally, they meet in secret to share a cigarette and talk, but it is clear that they no longer open up to each other, each of them trying to convince themselves that the life they now endure is the best option for them.

Tina

Tina and Dwight had a positive relationship as she was Sherry's younger sister. Dwight tries his best to take care of Tina as she was possibly all that Sherry had left in their family, and he also helped her fight her diabetes by using insulin that he keeps in their bag. When Tina is bitten in the neck and bled to death by her own reanimated friends, Dwight was saddened and felt responsible for her demise, as he would later tell Daryl that he got Tina killed, showing his guilt.

Negan

Upon entering The Sanctuary, Dwight, his wife and Tina worked for points under Negan. When Negan asked Tina to marry him, Dwight stole from Negan and fled with both Sherry and Tina. Eventually Dwight came back to the sanctuary with Sherry and begged Negan for forgiveness. Negan punished Dwight by burning the left side of his face. Their relationship is currently strong, with Dwight being one of Negans top lieutenants. This is proved by various statements by Negan himself and the fact that Dwight lead a group of the Saviors deep into the woods, and likely became one of his high ranking members.

In "Last Day On Earth" Dwight is shown to be very loyal to Negan, going as far as almost killing Glenn for desperately jumping towards Negan in fear of Maggie dying. Dwight is told to get Glenn back in line, which he does.

When Daryl punches Negan across the face, he asks him if he wants him to kill Daryl, as he looms over him with his crossbow; however Negan decides against it, and then later asks him to take Daryl prisoner, which he does with no questions asked.

Hence, Negan puts intense trust in Dwight and occasionally jokes with him much to Dwight's dismay.

However, their relationship may have been strained when Dwight witnesses Negan kissing Sherry, making him jealous, and reaffirming is already strong disdain for Negan.

It is with Sherry's escape from The Sanctuary that draws the final straw for Dwight as later on he decides to join forces with Rick's group to end Negan's reign of tyranny, acting as a double agent for them.

Simon

TBA

Daryl Dixon

"Negan trusts me. We work together, we can stop him. You knew me then, and you know me now. You know I'm not lying."
—Dwight to Daryl[src]

Dwight initially distrusted Daryl, believing him to be a member of the group they were hiding from sent to locate them. Dwight discovers this not to be the case as Daryl helps them escape Wade and his men, even surprising Dwight that Daryl would want to help them after holding him captive and threatening to kill him. Despite Daryl saving him, he is still only concerned about his safety and Sherry's as he takes Daryl's crossbow and motorcycle at gunpoint, and even fires the pistol to show how serious he is. This puts an immediate strain on their newly negative relationship.

In "Twice as Far", Dwight re-encounters Daryl with Rosita after he kills Denise with Daryl's crossbow that he stole. He and his group have taken Eugene hostage and threaten to kill all three of them if they do not lead his group back to their community. He further taunts Daryl by explaining that he wasn't even aiming for Denise, suggesting he may have been trying to kill him instead; this shows that, despite Daryl's efforts to save Dwight in their earlier encounter, Dwight sees him as an enemy and possibly a potential threat. Dwight later ambushes Daryl in "East" and greets him in a mocking tone before shooting him as he turns around, telling him "You'll be alright". Altering from a basic uneasy alliance, it can be confirmed that Dwight and Daryl have developed into a violent, hostile rivalry with one another.

After Daryl punched Negan, Dwight volunteers to kill Daryl himself but didn't at Negan's request. Their relationship remains negative towards each other.

After Daryl learns about what Negan did to Dwight, Daryl tells him he understands why Dwight is like this.

After finding Dwight in Alexandria's jail, Daryl has to be held back from attacking him.

Rosita Espinosa

Dwight and Rosita share a tense relationship. Rosita hates Dwight for killing Denise while Dwight acts that he is above her, going as far as calling her "darling". After Eugene bites Dwight on the crotch, causing a commotion, Rosita attempts to shoot Dwight before he and the remaining Saviors manage to flee. In "East", Rosita lets an angry Daryl leave Alexandria to hunt down Dwight and to avenge Denise's death. She later joins him despite Glenn and Michonne pleading them not to, showing how much she hates Dwight. She and Daryl, alongside Glenn and Michonne are then caught by Dwight and his Saviors. They are then brought up to Negan as well as Rick and the rest of the members.

In "Service", Dwight talks to Rosita about having Daryl's motorcycle and tells her to get it for him.

In "The Other Side", Dwight finds Rosita at the Sanctuary and apparently helps her to escape without detection. By the end of "Something They Need", Rosita has locked Dwight in Alexandria's jail, but appears to genuinely believe he desires to help them, or at least enough to hear him out and get Rick to do the same.

Eugene Porter

Dwight and Eugene's relationship started off badly. They first met when a group of Saviors led by Dwight ambushed Daryl, Rosita and Denise (killing Denise in the process) and using an already captured Eugene as hostage to capitulate them into leading them back to Alexandria. However, Eugene was able to distract Dwight long enough to bite him in the crotch and a firefight ensured, killing many Saviors and injuring Dwight who managed to break free and shoot Eugene in the stomach before retreating with the rest of his men.

Near the end of the episode 'Hostiles and Calamities', Dwight and Eugene are seen exchanging names and having a small conversation, showing possibly they are now on steady terms compared to prior.

Emmett Carson

TBA

Gordon

It appears Dwight and Gordon have known each other and basically close friends as mentioned by Gordon in The Cell. After Gordon escapes from the Sanctuary, Dwight voluntarily decides to hunt him down. When heis finally caught by Dwight, he begs Dwight to let him go or shoot him to which Dwight declines, forces him to go back or threatens that he will hurt everyone he knows at the Sanctuary. Gordon then grudgingly agrees. Dwight later changes his mind and decides to fullfil his wish by shooting him in the back. His zombified body is later seen outside the the chain-linked fence of The Sanctuary. It is unknown if Dwight did this out of mercy.

Rick Grimes

Dwight and Rick first interact when Rosita brings Dwight to Alexandria and holds him in a makeshift cell. After Dwight tells Rick he wants to help the Survivors, Rick pulls out his revolver and orders him to get down on his knees.

Tara Chambler

TBA
