Nothing is known about Emmett's life prior to or as the outbreak began except that he was a doctor. He may have lived somewhere in or near Virginia.
At some point he became the doctor for the Saviors. It's unknown if or how he was separated from his brother Harlan Carson, but it's likely that the Saviors forcefully recruited him from the Hilltop Colony.
Dr. Carson was finishing up an examination with Sherry regarding a possible pregnancy when Dwight enters the room with Daryl. Dr. Carson tells Daryl that things will get better and that Negan will take care of him as he tends to his wounds.
Dr. Carson is present when Negan makes an example out of Mark and tends to his injury after the ironing of his face is finished.
Dr. Carson stands in the hall as Negan addresses Dwight in his cell. After Dwight is released, Dr. Carson discusses getting to know Sherry when he performed check-ups for her. When Dwight returns from a run, he has his bandages replaced and listens as Dr. Carson shares his opinion on if he thinks Sherry is the one who let Daryl go. He changes his bandage and at one point Dwight puts Sherry's note in his desk. Later, as the Saviors and workers surround the furnace, Negan turns and whacks Lucille against Dr. Carson’s shoulder. He shows Dr. Carson a note from Sherry, which Dwight clipped from her farewell letter and planted in Dr. Carson’s desk. “Goodbye. -- Honey,” it reads. Dr. Carson accuses Dwight of lying, but he quickly folds and falsely confesses when Negan threatens him with the iron. He pleads Negan to not iron his face and apologizes to him. Negan stares intently at Eugene before he grabs Dr. Carson and throws him face-first into the furnace, killing him.
This list shows the victims Emmett has killed:
- Possibly numerous counts of zombies
Dwight sets Dr. Carson up by planting Sherry's letter to his office, Negan accuses Dr. Carson of helping Daryl escape in order to impress Sherry and throws him face-first into the furnace, burning him to death.
