"Guts" to Present
Steven Yeun Gallery
Glenn Rhee is a main protagonist in AMC's The Walking Dead. He is commonly the main supply runner for the group. Glenn makes his first appearance physically in "Guts" and helps Rick Grimes safely escape the walkers on the street and meet up with his group. Eventually, after the group stays on the Greene Farm, Glenn is engaged and married to Hershel Greene's daughter, Maggie Greene.
Appearance and PersonalityEdit
Glenn is an American male of Korean descent in his early 20's with black hair and a light complexion.
Glenn is bright, loyal, resourceful, quick-thinking and brave. Keenly aware of the extreme dangers he puts himself in for the group, his youth makes him willing to take the risk. Glenn thinks on his feet and shows great compassion and humanity. Despite all the horrors he has seen, he maintains a youthful enthusiasm for life and its unexpected pleasures. He is an integral part of the group, showing surprising depth and emotion when experiencing even the most devastating tragedies. In the second season while on the farm, he begins a relationship with Maggie Greene. Over the course of the latter half of season two and the third season, he has become extremely close and loving toward her, doing whatever is necessary to keep her safe. He is trustworthy and loyal, as seen in the episode "When the Dead Come Knocking", when Glenn and Maggie are captured by The Governor, he is brutally interrogated by Merle but will not reveal where the rest of Rick's group have set up camp. Glenn's main sidearm is a Glock 19.
Glenn was originally from Michigan, born of Korean immigrants. He moved to Atlanta sometime within his adult years, he delivered pizzas for a living. As it turned out, his knowledge of every short cut in Atlanta proves extremely useful to the group's scavenging needs. In the episode "Cherokee Rose", Glenn wears a shirt that has some Boy Scout markings on it, a sign that he might have been a Boy Scout.
He knows the city fairly well and can navigate his way through back alleys and the streets . When the outbreak began and the city was converted into a refugee centre, Glenn, being resourceful, was able to survive despite the city quickly being overrun by walkers.
In the episode, "Nebraska", Glenn talked about his mother and revealed that he has multiple sisters, but their fate after the apocalypse is currently unknown.
At the end of the episode. Rick Grimes is hiding inside a tank, Glenn contacts Rick via a radio after he shoots a walker inside it and says, "Hey you...Dumbass...Yeah you in the tank...Cozy in there?"
Rather than go into Atlanta alone, Glenn brings more people with him to scavenge for supplies (though he later comes to regret the idea since this was the first time he did it. And the results were not as favourable as working alone.) He spots Rick as he was attacked by a mob of zombies upon entering the city and see him escape into a tank parked in the middle of the street. Glenn manages to reach him through the CB in the tank and helps him escape the zombie mob. He then later leads Rick to his group as they try to think of what to do next since the zombies are aware of their presence (due to Rick's earlier action, though he was unaware there were survivors). At first the group thinks they can escape through the sewer, but Glenn scouting it with Morales reveal bars blocking their way and a zombie feasting on a rat. After telling the others that idea is out, Rick gets the idea to put zombie entrails on their person to mask their scent and wade through the zombies to get transportation. Glenn volunteers to go with him and the two make their way to a parking lot. The plan works until a sudden rainstorm passes through and washes off the entrails, giving the two away. Rick and Glenn are forced to run but manage to make it to the lot and secure a loading truck. Realizing they need a distraction, Rick hot-wires a Dodge Challenger and has Glenn lead the zombies away from the store while Rick picks up the others. The plan succeeds and Glenn is seen leaving Atlanta in the Challenger, whooping in victory. He makes a great asset to Rick's group.
After they all get back to the camp-site and reunite with the other survivors, Glenn is asked by Rick to go with him back in the city because he knows his way in and out. He leads Rick, T-Dog, and Daryl Dixon to the building that Merle Dixon was handcuffed onto. Heading up the stairs they find no walkers. On the roof, Daryl calls out to Merle, but they only find Merle's hand, a bloody hacksaw, and the bloody handcuffs.
When Rick decides to go back for Merle he enlists the help of Glenn because of his knowledge of the city. Glenn reluctantly agrees and joins the party to go save Merle. In the city, they realize that Merle was able to escape by cutting off his hand and after following Merle's bloody trail the group starts to organize how to get the Bag of Guns back. Glenn organizes the plan to get the guns like a skilled tactician arguing that he's agile enough to get in and out of the streets. At one point Daryl asks Glenn what his profession was before the apocalypse to which Glenn replies, "Delivered pizzas. Why?" Glenn succeeds in acquiring the weapons, but is taken hostage by a group called the Vatos who also want the guns. Rick and the group come to the Vatos hideout with a hostage called Miguel but the negotiation goes badly and both groups draw their guns on each other. The battle is interrupted by Abuela, a woman who reveals to the group that the Vatos are actually looking after an abandoned nursing home and its residents. The group decide to split the guns between themselves and the Vatos group, and return to the spot where they left the van only to find it missing. Assuming Merle to be the culprit, they immediately head back to camp and are just in time to fend off an attacking herd of walkers.
After the attack on the camp-site which left many people dead, he and the others struggled to decide what to do with Jim, who was bitten. Glenn says his goodbyes to him, as does everyone else, and leaves the man sitting by a tree. Glenn and the group arrive at the CDC only to find it seemingly abandoned, and they are about to leave until a door opens, bathing the group in light.
Following their arrival at the CDC, Glenn takes advantage of the building's luxuries (food, clean clothes, etc.), and follows around the rest of the survivors. He, along with everyone else except for Jacqui and Dr. Edwin Jenner, escape the building before it explodes, and then head to Fort Benning, a military base.
Glenn was forced to stop along with the others when Dale's RV breaks down. He is then later seen fixing an old truck; when a herd of zombies come their way, he hides under a car with Shane. Sophia then gets chased by a duo of zombies and the group looks for, but she is not found by the end of the episode.
Glenn and the group continue to look for Sophia when all of a sudden Maggie appears on a horse and takes Lori and tells Glenn and the others to head to their farm they make it back to the highway, but Carol does not want to go and wants to keep looking for Sophia. Dale, Daryl, Carol, and Andrea stay at the RV to see if Sophia comes back while Glenn and T-Dog head to the farm.
Glenn makes it to the farm with T-Dog and watches Hershel perform surgery on Carl. He then sits out on the porch, prays for this to end and starts to form a relationship with Maggie (Hershel's daughter). Glenn then waits for Shane and Otis to return to the farm with the supplies. Shane reveals that Otis is dead and Glenn feels sorry even though he didn't know him.
At the farm, Dale and T-Dog find a walker inside of one of the wells, and the group quickly rallied to devise a plan to rescue the walker from the well without contaminating the water. The survivors then lower down Glenn as bait. The plan goes awry when the old rusty water pump they’re using as a pulley breaks, sending Glenn within reach of the ravenous reverent. They save Glenn who, despite his panic, managed to lasso the corpulent creature. Unfortunately, the risk and subsequent struggle to haul out the zombie is all for nothing, as its rancid body gets snagged on the lip of the well only to rip in half, dropping its fetid bowels into the water below.
Later, Glenn and Maggie go for an excursion to the local pharmacy to get more medical supplies and a pregnancy test for Lori, and while they are there, they end up having sex.
Glenn is frustrated by Maggie's hot and cold behavior towards him. He shares a theory with Dale that all of the women are acting strangely because their menstrual cycles are aligning. Dale advises him to keep that theory to himself, and also discovers that Glenn and Maggie had sex. He mentions that Hershel would likely not approve, to which Glenn replies, "tomorrow I might be dead." Glenn is the only person at this point that knows Lori is pregnant. Maggie passes a note to Glenn during dinner asking him where he thinks they should have their second sexual encounter, and he replies the (barn) loft. But Maggie does not read his reply right away. Glenn sets out to investigate the barn and wait for Maggie, but makes the shocking discovery that the barn is already in-use as a containment and concealment vessel for numerous walkers.
Glenn, unable to hold the secret of the barn, tells Dale about it, as well as Lori's pregnancy. After this incident, Maggie feels betrayed by Glenn and initially refuses to speak with him, though she does another run into town with him. While there, Maggie is attacked by a Walker and Glenn jumps into to rescue her. They manage to get Lori´s morning after pills, which Rick finds.
Glenn reveals to the whole group that there are walkers in the barn. Maggie is again frustrated by Glenn's inability to keep secrets, but he reassures her that it was to keep her safe. Later, when he participates in the shooting at the end of the episode with Shane, Andrea, T-Dog, and Daryl, he first looks at Maggie for approval of shooting, and she agrees.
At Hershel's home, Maggie asks Glenn if he would stay if the rest of his group were to leave, but Glenn is unsure how to answer. Beth suddenly grows ill and collapses. She suffers from a fever and other serious symptoms, and seems to be in some state of shock. The group looks for Hershel to care for Beth, but discover that he has vanished, leaving behind his empty flask as a clue. Rick decides to look for Hershel at the local bar, and takes Glenn as backup. En route to town, Glenn confides to Rick that Maggie told him she loved him. Rick says that they need more good things like that in their lives, and that he should embrace those moments. At the bar, Rick and Glenn find Hershel and tells him about Beth. Hershel reflects that he had robbed his daughters of a normal grieving process by giving them a false hope, and allowing himself to believe it too. Hershel also says that Rick must relate, saying he saw the same feeling wash over Rick's face when Sophia emerged from the barn that there is no hope. Rick argues that nothing has really changed, and people are counting on them to be strong. They are interrupted when the bar door opens and two strange men walk in, identifying themselves as Dave and Tony. The five men converse cordially at first, but the strangers become impatient when Rick's group will not divulge information about the Greene farm. Glenn and the group are immediately untrustworthy of the strangers when Tony loses his patience and says he is considering shooting them all. When Dave reaches for his gun, Glenn watches as Rick pulls out his gun and shoots the two men.
At town, after killing Dave and Tony, Rick, Hershel, and Glenn are about to leave but instead get pinned down in the saloon by members of Dave and Tony's group: Sean, Nate, and Randall. Rick tells them that Dave and Tony pulled their guns out on them first but the group begin to shoot. Rick tells Glenn to check the back exit. As Glenn walks down some creaky steps and approaches the door, a shadow outside reaches for the handle and begins to twist it but Glenn shoots through the glass and scares him off. Rick tells Hershel to cover Glenn while he makes a run for the car. A man named Sean who was part of the group sneaks up behind Glenn and attempts to shoot him but Hershel shoots and wounds Sean, who starts crying out in pain. Rick asks Hershel what happened, he says he thinks Glenn was hit. Rick finds Glenn is just frozen behind a dumpster and approaches him. Rick, Hershel, and Glenn return to the farm with Randall blind folded in the backseat as a hostage. The group argues on what to do with Randall, Rick says they will fix him up and than drop him off to defend himself but Shane thinks that he will tell his group where the farm is and this will start a war. Hershel reminds Shane that it is his farm and while he is there he needs to keep his mouth shut. Maggie pulls Glenn aside and asks him if anything is wrong, he explains how her father saved his life, and that he froze and could not do anything to help. He had froze because she told him that he loved him, and he was afraid to die because of how it would affect her. She tries to embrace him, but he pushes her away.
Glenn is not seen this episode, but is talked about by Lori and Maggie about how he froze during the shoot-out between Rick, himself and Hershel and Dave and Tony's group.
In the farmhouse, Glenn finds Hershel checking up on Beth. Hershel asks Glenn about his family and tells him about his own Irish heritage. He hands Glenn a pocket watch that belonged to his grandfather. "No man is good enough for your little girl," Hershel says, "until one is". As the sun sets, Rick again asks Lori if she thinks he's doing the right thing. Lori nods. The group gathers in the house. Rick asks if anyone thinks Randall should be spared. Dale posits that the only people who think so are himself and Glenn, but Glenn too sides with Rick. "He's not one of us," Glenn offers. Glenn along with all the other survivors gather around Dale before he is shot by Daryl to prevent reanimation.
Glenn attends Dale's funeral and is sad because he regrets going against the latter's wishes to spare Randall, but Andrea comforts him and tells him that Dale was proud of him overall and knew how much Glenn cared for him. Later, Randall disappears from the barn and while the group is looking for him Shane emerges from the woods claiming Randall has escaped and is armed. Glenn and Daryl are sent to look for him in the woods. They are attacked by a walker, and when Glenn kills it, it turns out to be a reanimated Randall. Both Daryl and Glenn are puzzled by the lack of bites on his body, and also find it strange how his neck had been snapped. They return to the farm to tell the rest of the group about what happened.
When the zombies invade the farm, Glenn and Maggie get into Shane's car and attempt to corral the zombies and lead them away from the farm. Glenn shoots multiple zombies until he realizes there is too many of them. When they are overwhelmed, Glenn convinces Maggie to leave the farm. As morning hits, the two continue to drive as Maggie feels shaken from the attack on the farm. She asks Glenn if her family escaped; he comforts her though insists that he drive instead. Glenn admits to Maggie that he loves her and he had loved her for a long time.
As they make their way back to the highway where the group left supplies for Sophia, they meet up with Rick, Carl, and Hershel who await them. Daryl, Carol, Lori, Beth and T-Dog also arrive. Glenn asks about Andrea, but T-Dog exclaims she "went down" during the attack. The group presses on but stops along the road when Rick runs out of gas. Rick's leadership is questioned when he reveals the secret he'd been hiding about the walkers; they're all infected. Glenn lashes out at Rick for not telling the group as he did when he told "for the good of everyone" about the barn. They take shelter for the night. A prison can be seen looming in the distance.
Glenn is seen with the group when they stumble upon the abandoned house and Rick, Carl, Daryl, and T-Dog kill the Walkers inside of it. The group is forced to flee, however, when another herd of walkers begins to approach their location. After Daryl and Rick stumble upon the prison while hunting, Glenn helps out to distract and kill the walkers while Rick runs inside the prison yard to close the main gate. The next day, Glenn assists Rick, Daryl, Maggie, and T-Dog in killing the remainder of the Walkers on the interior of the prison. The romantic relationship between him and Maggie continues as the two share a cell on the inside of the prison and cuddle as he checks Maggie for scratch marks. The next day after sleeping in the inside of the prison, Rick, Daryl, T-Dog, Glenn, Maggie, and Hershel suit up and explore more of the inside of the prison in search of its infirmary and cafeteria. The group is ambushed by Walkers, causing both Maggie and Glenn to split up from the rest. Hershel insists that himself, Rick, Daryl, and T-Dog go back to look for them, and Hershel manages to find them, but is bit in the right calf by a Lurker lying against the wall. Glenn assists them in taking Hershel to the cafeteria, and is present when Rick amputates the lower portion of Hershel's right leg to keep the infection from spreading.
Glenn is seen mostly by Hershel's side in the episode, and helps to console Maggie. Carol pulls him aside despite orders by Rick to stay at Hershel's side, needing his assistance in killing a female walker to use as practice for a C-Section as she may be the one to deliver Lori's baby due to Hershel's condition and because of Carl being born that way.
Glenn does not appear in this episode.
Glenn is first called down from one of the guard towers, where he was having sexual intercourse with Maggie, to help Rick, Daryl, Carol and T-Dog move some cars. He witnesses the beginning of the walker invasion, and he, along with Rick and Daryl, sprint to the gate so they can enter the prison and help out the group, as the ones trapped with the walkers are greatly outnumbered. He helps clear out the prison and to disable the alarm boxes by shooting them. He accompanies Axel to the generator room to disable the generators. He is present when the group discovers T-Dog's devoured body, along with Carol's headpiece.
Glenn is seen digging graves for Lori, Carol, and T-Dog. After allowing Oscar and Axel to dig the remaining graves, Glenn reveals to Hershel that he wishes they would have killed all of the prisoners on sight.
When Maggie goes out on a scavenging trip to find baby formula with Daryl, Glenn comforts her, telling her to be safe and that he loves her.
Glenn is later seen, pleading with Rick not to enter the room containing Lori's body. Rick retaliates, shoving Glenn into the wall, and walks away without a word.
Glenn announces that he and Maggie are planning on going on a scavenging trip. Glenn is seen driving a truck with Maggie into a supermarket parking lot. Unbeknownst to them, they are being watched by Michonne. They open the door to be greeted by a crow, and some flying papers. Maggie then tells him to retrieve a duck toy, for the new baby. He also scavenges enough powdered formula to fill an entire shopping basket. Suddenly, they are confronted by Merle. Glenn is clearly surprised to see Merle still alive. Merle says he wants to travel back with them to their base to find his brother, Daryl, in which Glenn refuses. Merle attacks and takes Maggie hostage. With a gun to her head, he forces Glenn to drive back to Woodbury.
Glenn is brutally interrogated by Merle, who yearns to learn the location of the camp where the Atlanta survivors have moved into. After viciously beating him, Glenn still refuses to talk. However, Glenn ends up angering Merle by head-butting him in the nose, prompting him to beat Glenn harder. After a while and still not talking, Merle releases a walker into the room. Glenn uses his feet to knock stuff on it, but eventually breaks the chair and stabs it. Merle comes back later with Martinez, and behind them Maggie is held topless by The Governor. Glenn assumes Maggie was raped and tries to attack them. The Governor gets angry and points his gun at Glenn's head, but Glenn says nothing. Maggie breaks and tells him everything. The Governor leaves along with Merle and Martinez. Maggie then runs crying into Glenn's arms.
Glenn and Maggie are first seen sitting in the room with the dead walker he killed in the previous episode. Glenn breaks off a shard of bone from the walker's forearm and hands it to Maggie. Glenn and Maggie ambush Merle and Warren successfully when they arrive to take them to the "screamer pits", but they are restrained when Martinez approaches and holds them at gunpoint. While being escorted away a second time, Rick's group arrives and uses a flash grenade, allowing them to rescue Glenn and Maggie. Glenn informs Daryl that Merle was the one responsible for torturing him, and Glenn takes part in the Woodbury shoot-out, despite being badly injured. Glenn also trains his gun on Michonne, along with Rick and Maggie, when she rejoins them outside of Woodbury following the shoot-out.
Glenn stays behind when Rick and Maggie attack Woodbury, and attempts to attack Merle when Rick, Maggie, and Daryl return to the road where he and Michonne are waiting. Glenn pulls a walker out from a truck, and begins to stomp on its head several times, appearing frustrated. Glenn is angered at Rick for not taking the opportunity to kill The Governor during the attack and for allowing Daryl to leave them by going with Merle. He is also infuriated about what he thinks The Governor did to Maggie, which is rape her. Rick tells Glenn that finding Daryl was the priority. Glenn is later seen being taken care of by Hershel, and it also appears that there is tension between him and Maggie.
Glenn proposes that The Prison survivors defend themselves from The Governor by attacking Woodbury immediately, and inquires to Michonne about the town. Hershel, however, remarks that Glenn's decision to take over the leadership from Rick may be unwise at the time, due to Maggie still recovering from her and Glenn's detention and torture in Woodbury. He advises Glenn to comfort Maggie but Glenn first decides to search for the origin of the walkers with assistance from Carl. Glenn obliges to Hershel's request after completing this task. Upon talking to Maggie, he asks her why she is acting depressed, and she responds with explaining the abuse she endured from The Governor. He then asks her if she was raped, to which she responds with a "no," which relieves Glenn, but annoys Maggie. After searching "The Tombs" of The Prison, he ventures outside to search for the breach in the building. He drives off, only to return again during The Governor's attack, just in time to rescue Hershel and Michonne.
Glenn is seen with the rest of the group, discussing the Woodbury situation, and sides with Rick's decision that they aren't leaving The Prison. Rick, Glenn, and Hershel are discussing what to do with Merle. Glenn suggests using Merle as a bargaining chip for The Governor. When Andrea visits The Prison, Glenn tells her that if The Governor wants a war, he's got one. Later, he gives Andrea a spare car to drive back to Woodbury in. When night comes and Beth sings to the group again, he sits with Maggie drinking a cup of water.
While Rick, Daryl and Hershel are away dealing with The Governor, Glenn makes the decision for the group and does not want anybody to interfere with Rick. Merle insists on going to kill The Governor, but Glenn angrily tells him no. Before Merle walks out the prison door, him and Glenn get in a brawl that Beth stops with a gunshot in the air. Glenn and Merle argue briefly before going separate ways. Glenn goes outside to check on Maggie and apologizes for how he's been acting. The two back up into the garage and have sex. When Rick returns to the prison, Glenn and the rest of the group listens to what Rick has to say.
Glenn does not appear in this episode
Daryl attempts to have Merle apologize to Glenn for his wrongdoings, but Glenn tells Daryl that he would probably forgive Merle if it wasn't for the fact that he brought Maggie to The Governor, who terrorized and humiliated her. Glenn visits Hershel and says that he now understands why Hershel gave him the pocket watch and tells Hershel that he wants to marry Maggie. Hershel gives Glenn his blessing. Glenn goes to look for rings on female walkers and he cuts a finger off and gives Maggie the ring and she agrees.
Glenn appears shortly in this episode. He fends off the approaching Woodbury soldiers with Maggie in combat armour taken from the reanimated prison guards who were present in the prison when the survivors arrived. Later, he opens the gates to the prison for Woodbury citizens, looking stunned as he looks on with Maggie.
Glenn is seen waking up with Maggie. He tells her that he will go to the Big Spot, instead of her. Maggie shows concern, but Glenn says he will be fine with the riot gear. Later, when the group loots the Big Spot, he notices some baby things, but moves on. When the walkers start falling through the roof, Glenn is caught in a close encounter with two zombies. Glenn manages to fend them off, and gets out of the Big Spot alive. Later, when he arrives at the prison, Maggie tells Glenn she is not pregnant, much to Glenn's relief.
He is first seen watching Maggie as she sleeps before taking a picture of her causing her to wake up and the two talk quickly before he leaves the tower. He is next seen when cell block D is attack and participates in getting rid of the walkers and evacuating the citizens. He then makes sure no one reanimates with the others and is attacked by an undead Patrick but is saved by Daryl. After this he meets with the rest of the "council" to discuss what is going on within the prison as well as creating a plan to separate people. Later he helps to try and deal with the walkers at the fence and watches as Rick and Daryl use the pigs to draw them away.
Glenn appears talking to Hershel about how the infection is spreading and that there is no stopping it, Sasha walks out infected with the virus. Glenn later appears having come down with the infection and is taken to Cell Block A. Later after tending to Dr S. Hershel tends to Glenn and encourages Glenn to fight through the infection.
Glenn does not appear in this episode.
Glenn's condition has worsened. He tries to keep himself busy and his mind off of being (almost) fatally ill by helping Hershel tend to the other sick survivors. After a few of the other survivors die, most of them turn and wreak havoc in D-block. While attending one of the sick survivors, the survivor unexpectedly stops breathing. Glenn attempts CPR, but to no avail. He tries to call Hershel, but instead enters a coughing frenzy, which leads hims to begin coughing and then choking on his own blood. He nearly dies, but is ultimately saved when Hershel grabs an intubator and gets help from Maggie in feeding it down his throat. His condition is stabilized and he manages to make it through the night.
Glenn does not appear in this episode.
