|This article is about the Kingdom resident. You may be looking for the Prison newcomer, the actor, or the extra.|
Nothing is known about Henry's life prior to or as the outbreak began except that he had a father and an older brother Benjamin.
As Morgan shows Carol the Kingdom, Henry can be seen riding a horse in an enclosure as his brother Benjamin guides the horse around. Later, Henry eats dinner with Benjamin and Morgan and excuses himself early to catch the movie being shown later for the community's residents. Benjamin reminds his younger brother to eat everything on his plate, including the broccoli he set aside, and to be in bed by 10pm after doing some reading.
Henry is seen put to bed by Ezekiel. Benjamin watches and speaks with Ezekiel about helping Rick’s group fight against the Saviors. Ezekiel thanks him for his counsel.
Henry first appears training with Morgan, learning how to fight with a stick, hoping to surpass his brother one day, then seen hugging Benjamin before he goes out on a run. Later he is being comforted by King Ezekiel after learning of his brothers' demise at the hands of Jared. He later appears in the ending sequence with Carol and King Ezekiel, working to repair the recently burned royal garden that had been infested with weevils.
Henry is seen talking with Ezekiel about the fight and how many people will lose their loved ones. He is reassured that the Kingdom will win, after Ezekiel, Jerry and Carol get back into the Kingdom, Henry looks in sadness as he sees his beloved king injured and upset.
Henry is first seen when Carol attempts to get Ezekiel to help her muster fighters so they can rendezvous with Rick, but she gets no response. On her way out, Henry follows her and offers to help fight the Saviors, but she angrily turns him away and tells him not to follow her. He ignores her orders and proceeds to follow her.
In the woods, Henry is seen fighting two walkers with his stick. Carol appears and shoots the walkers and admonishes Henry for putting his life in danger. Henry, seeking revenge for Benjamin’s death insists on fighting the Saviors. After some consideration, Carol relents and gives him a gun.
Though unseen, Henry is among the Kingdommers rounded up by the Saviors when they invade the settlement at night. After Ezekiel sets off a distraction, Henry flees the Kingdom to the safe house with the other residents.
When Carol prepares to return to The Kingdom to rescue Ezekiel, Henry, still wanting to avenge Benjamin’s death, attempts to convince Carol to allow him to join her. However, Carol refuses and orders Henry to stay behind with the other Kingdommers. Henry then follows her to the Kingdom. When Morgan stealthily enters the invaded Kingdom, he sees Henry prowling in the distance.
As Carol and Ezekiel try to convince Morgan not to kill Gavin, Henry suddenly comes up from behind Gavin and stabs him through the nape, killing the Savior lieutenant. Afterwards, Henry insists that he had to kill Gavin as Ezekiel comforts him and Carol is angry at Henry for not staying behind, but Ezekiel cuts her off.
Alongside Morgan, Henry guards the Saviors being held prisoner at the Hilltop as Jared makes a ruckus and Carol tries to get Henry and Morgan to take a break. Due to Jared's antics, Henry demands of the Saviors which one killed his brother, not realizing it to be Jared himself, but receives no answer. Carol ultimately succeeds in getting Henry to leave.
Later, Morgan lies to Henry that Gavin killed Benjamin and thus Henry had already gotten his revenge upon Benjamin's killer, but Henry remains unconvinced.
Inside the Hilltop, everyone is preparing for battle. Henry wants to join the fight, but Carol refuses and Ezekiel orders him to defend the Hilltop from the inside and keep others alive. Meanwhile, Henry gets his hands on a machine gun.
Outside, Henry approaches Gregory in the prison pen. Gregory begs to be let out, but Henry wants to know who killed his brother, despite Morgan telling him he killed his supposed killer, Gavin. Gregory tries to reason with Henry and get the gun from him and says killing whoever killed Benjamin won't bring his brother back. Alden steps up as Henry threatens to kill people until he finds out. He promises it won't make him feel better, but Henry is unreasonable.
Henry enters the prison and demands they reveal themselves before he starts shooting. A Savior has now become a walker and starts attacking the prisoners. Henry kills two Saviors before Jared tackles Henry and leads everyone out. Gregory thinks about helping Henry, but runs off with the Saviors and leaves him behind. The next morning, everyone searches for Henry, as he is nowhere to be found.
Carol displays a reluctance to search for Henry who is determined to have chased after the escaped Savior prisoners. Ezekiel realizes that Carol fears that Henry is dead and is too scared to find out for sure. Despite Ezekiel's prompting, Carol refuses to search until she finds Morgan going to look. During their search, Morgan experiences hallucinations of Henry and expresses a belief that he is dead. Carol and Morgan find a walker with Henry's spear impaled through it. Morgan kills the walker with Henry's spear and heads off alone to chase the escaped Saviors as Carol heads in the direction the walker came from, carrying the spear.
As Carol continues her search, she finds Henry's discarded chest plate and fears the worst before she hears Henry screaming for help. To Carol's shock and relief, she discovers Henry hiding behind a bunch of tree roots next to a creek bed with three walkers trying to reach him. Relieved, Carol kills the walkers and embraces Henry, pleased that she was wrong about his fate.
Carol and Henry return to the Hilltop where Jerry eagerly announces their return to Ezekiel. When Morgan and Rick Grimes return, Morgan tells Henry that he killed the Savior who murdered Henry's brother. His face falling, Henry apologizes to Morgan who embraces the boy and tells him to never be sorry.
