"Hey! Hey! Slow down! Slow down! Slow-- I'm begging you! No! Please!"
—The survivor to Rick, Michonne and Carl as they are driving past him in their vehicle.[src]

This hitchhiker, also know as Backpack Guy, is a survivor of the outbreak in AMC's The Walking Dead.

Pre-ApocalypseEdit

Location UnknownEdit

Nothing is known about this hitchhiker's life before or as the outbreak began. It is possible he once was part of a group of survivors, but they all died or disappeared.

Post-ApocalypseEdit

Season 3Edit

"Clear"Edit

This survivor is seen hitchhiking along the side of the highway, eventually spotting Rick, Michonne, and Carl in a car driving past him. He yells for their help, but is ignored and continues to try and run after Rick's car, but stops and falls on his knees, realizing they aren't stopping for him.

The car shortly stalls at a pile-up. Rick, Michonne, and Carl get out to release the car. They ignore the hitchhiker's cries for help, despite the fact that they are slowly getting louder. After releasing the car, the three get back into the car and drive away. The hitchhiker, having run towards the group after seeing them stop, falls to the ground again.

On the drive back to the prison, Rick, Carl, and Michonne pass the pile-up and notice a corpse and streak of blood on the ground, ending at the hitchhiker's distinctive orange backpack. The car backs up, and Carl hops out to grab the backpack before they drive away.

  • Why didnt they pick up the hitchhiker?

    6 messages
    • I think it was down to them not having a safe place for them to stay. For example when Hershel told Tyreese about the trouble with the Governor.
    • If they came across Lizzie and Mika they wouldn't have taken them in because it wasn't safe.
