"We're getting a bunch of cancels 'cause of that bug going around."
—Joanna Cruz to Madison Clark.[src]

Joanna Cruz is a character in AMC's Fear The Walking Dead.

Pre-Apocalypse

El Sereno, Los Angeles, California

Not much is known about Joanna's life before the apocalypse except that she has a daughter named Gladys and a husband and is neighbors with the Clark, Tran, Dawson, Thompson and Ramirez families in the suburban El Sereno community of Los Angeles.

Post-Apocalypse

"So Close, Yet So Far"

As Travis, Madison, and Nick arrive home, Joanna is on her front lawn preparing for her daughter's birthday party. As she continues to make preparations, Madison goes over to her house to inform her about something; what she was told is unknown.

Later, while she is cleaning up after her daughter's party, Joanna's neighbor Peter Dawson appears as a reanimated corpse and attacks her. The undead Peter tackles Joanna to the ground as she screams. She manages to break free from his grasp, but she keeps screaming as she tries to escape. Alicia attempts to help Joanna, but Madison prevents her from doing so.

"The Dog"

It is not entirely clear what happened to her after she fled inside her home from the attack, but fresh blood could be seen splattered all over the deflated bounce house from Gladys' party, indicating that she was probably bitten and wounded. Additionally, when the military arrives, multiple body bags could be seen being carried out and also an X is spray-painted onto her home.

Since she's not present in the next episode when the National Guards are doing headcounts, it is likely that she was killed by the zombified Peter Dawson.

Death

Killed By

A zombified Peter Dawson attacked Joanna Cruz on her front lawn, resulting in fresh blood splattering all over the deflated bouncy house. She flees into her home with Peter following after her into the house. On the next morning, none of the Cruzs shown up when the National Guards were declaring safety. The National Guard are seen removing multiple body bags from their house with an X spray-painted on the walls, indicating she and her family probably died.

It is not known if the Cruz family were completely devoured by Peter Dawson. If not, then the family could have reanimated, and were eventually dispatched in the morning after by incoming National Guardsmen who took over the community of El Sereno. Of course, there is still a possibility that they are shot alive by the National Guards which notices that they are infected.
