June, also known by the aliases Naomi and Laura, is a main character and a survivor of the outbreak in AMC's Fear The Walking Dead. She was formerly a resident of the Dell Diamond Baseball Stadium community, and later a member of the Vultures until the death of their leader Melvin. She is currently a member and nurse of Althea's Group.
She is described as "a capable survivor we'll meet living on her own early on in the season. She'll have her guard up as she crosses paths with Madison and her family, and — as we'll learn over the course of the season — she'll have a very good reason for keeping people at a distance. Even so, she'll end up developing some connections that surprise her, including a bond with Alicia."
Prior to the outbreak began, she was an ICU nurse, she had one child, named Rose, and was married. During her time working at a hospital, she saw enough car accident and stroke victims to begin to tell who would survive their wounds and who would not.
June is found in the small town of Elgin, Texas, where she was camping out in the ruins of a burned car. She initially holds Madison at gunpoint, but is surrounded by Alicia, Strand, and Luciana.
She attempts to flee by climbing to the top of an oil tank, but falls through the deteriorated roof into the tank. Covered in oil, she is surrounded by the zombies that were lured into the tank by the Vultures before June's arrival. Madison jumps in to help June and the other survivors break open the door leading into the tank, releasing the oil and those inside. June is ultimately saved and rests with her rescuers.
Later, she is invited to come back with them to their community where she uses her medical experience to treat Nick's head wound. After she finishes treating Nick, Madison informs June that she can take a hot shower, much to her delight. However, June is on alert as the Vultures arrive at the settlement, demanding the survivors to abandon their home.
During the flashbacks, June accompanies Alicia Clark on a scouting mission for supplies to the Whirlin' Wavez amusement park. As they navigate through the amusement park, they realize that there was once a camp but was overrun after the fences fell. She and Alicia realize the remaining survivors of the camp must have barricaded the water slide's stairs and set up camp at the top of the slide. After climbing up the slippery slide, the two find medical supplies, but June takes the opportunity to distract Alicia and attempt to flee. The car she takes quickly runs out of gas, forcing June to explain that when she worked in the ICU, she saw all the time patients that she knew wouldn't make it and she believes the stadium will fall. Alicia eventually convinces June to return where she offers to set up an infirmary. Alone, June removes a six-shooter from her backpack and examines it.
In the present, June's backpack is amongst the things Alicia Clark, Victor Strand and Luciana Galvez have in a weapons cache. The group explains to John Dorie that when the stadium fell, they grabbed anything they could of use, including June's backpack. Inside the backpack, John finds June's gun, an exact match for his own. The shocked John identifies June as his missing girlfriend Laura whose real name he never knew. To the grief of John, Alicia's group tells him that June did not make it out of the stadium and is dead.
In a flashback, June is first seen lying unconscious in the water. John finds her and lays June on his bed and discovers a deep gash on her stomach. He dresses her wound and sleeps on the couch while she sleeps on his bed.
In the morning, June leaves the cabin and searches John's Jeep for keys and he catches her. John tells her where to find the keys but warns that the car needs a new battery. He suggests she at least takes some food, water and first aid supplies before leaving.
June gives John instructions on how to stitch her wound. She grimaces as John pierces her skin with a needle. John serves fish stew for dinner and asks if he can call her Laura because she refuses to tell him her name. He welcomes her to stay as long as she’d like. June insists she will leave as soon as she is better.
June rests in her bed and wakes up in the middle of the night and sees John cleaning his pistols. He mentions to June that he is also going on a supply run. June insists on joining him. He offers her boots to protect herself from snakes, but she refuses to wear shoes that might impede her ability to run. John and June row the canoe upriver. June inquires about John’s past. He informs her that he was a police officer.
June and John reach a bridge and notice a breached guardrail. They quickly deduce that Infected have been falling through the gap and floating downriver. John and June stop at a general store for supplies. June lays out first aid supplies for anyone else who visits the store.
June and John use corrugated metal from a gas station to mend the guardrail. June lies in bed while John watches a movie. She joins him on the couch. John offers to make some brittle. June watches John sleep during the movie. He wakes up and stares at her. She reveals that she lost her child.
June asks John to teach her how to fish. John gives June a fishing lesson and shows her how to gut the fish. They eat fish for dinner. June thanks John for teaching her. John and June play Scrabble and fish over the ensuing days.
June’s stitches is removed by John. June announces that she’s ready to leave, now that her wounds have healed. John goes outside to kill an Infected and realizes that their patch on the bridge isn’t working. June offers to help John fix the bridge by blocking the gap with the Jeep.
June and John sit in the Jeep on the bridge. June says she learned how to hot-wire cars from a woman that she met in a camp. John sees one of his pistols hidden behind June’s back and snatches it. June argues that they need the gun for protection, but John sternly refuses to use firearms.
June and John kill all the Infected on the bridge then drive the Jeep in front of the gap. An Infected attacks John in the driver’s seat. June screams at him to use his gun. John refuses to shoot and, after a near-deadly struggle, stabs the Infected instead.
Back at the cabin, June points out that John almost died because of his refusal to use guns. John explains that when he was a cop, he fatally shot a robber in the leg. He says that he moved to a new town after everyone started calling him a hero.
Infected surround the Jeep on the bridge, jostling the Infected corpse inside and knocking the Jeep into neutral. Infected fall off the bridge into the river.
The two hear Infected piling up in the creek. They go outside and begin slaying the Infected. June becomes overrun by Infected. John gets his guns and saves her life by sharpshooting the Infected.
June thanks John and calls him an honorable person. John gives her a pistol to take with her on the road.
June joins John on the couch to watch a movie. John moves outside. She asks why he’s avoiding her. “I love you,” he says and asks her not to leave. They kiss.
June leaves the next morning, and leaves John with a message written with Scrabble tiles: “I love you too I’m sorry.”
June removes glass from Alicia’s arm at the stadium infirmary and asks Madison if they’re going out again for more supplies. Madison says they have no choice.
June tries to leave the stadium in a car, but Viv stands in her way. Viv tells Madison that June was trying to run off with one of their cars. June says that she was merely driving to a location that might have seeds and fertilizer. Madison and Strand join her.
June, Madison and Strand pull over at a motel and kill Infected in the front office. Madison deduces that the people killed each other over a can of baked beans. Strand finds a stash of snacks. Over dinner, June explains that she’s taking Madison and Strand to an abandoned FEMA shelter. She admits that she had been planning to flee the stadium when Viv caught her but that she had intended to leave them with a map to the FEMA shelter. Strand orders her to hand over the car keys. Madison wakes up and finds June gone.
June drives to the FEMA shelter after hot-wiring a car. She knocks on the front doors and attracts a herd of Infected locked inside. June enters the FEMA shelter through a side entrance and goes to the pantry. She opens a locked box and retrieves a notebook containing instructions for survival. She also takes a set of keys with “JIC” written on a key-chain. June enters a cafeteria and breaks into tears when she sees kids’ drawings on the wall. The herd hears her and migrates from the lobby into the cafeteria. She flees to another room and finds herself surrounded by Infected, some of whose faces she recognizes. She climbs to the top of scaffolding and sobs as the herd gathers below her.
Madison and Strand enter the FEMA shelter and spot June on the scaffolding. June tosses them the “JIC” keys and tells them there’s a truck outside with supplies. Madison distracts Infected while Strand strings up some rope. June shimmies across the rope and escapes with Madison and Strand.
Madison, Strand, and June rest in the lobby. June explains that she and her daughter, Rose, had stayed at the shelter, where a woman named Ellen taught “Just in Case” survival skill classes. June says that she left the shelter to find antibiotics after Rose caught pneumonia. When she returned, Rose had died, turned and infected everyone else. June takes Madison and Strand to a well-stocked “Just in Case” truck that Ellen had prepared in the event of an emergency. After putting down the reanimated Ellen and removing her body, they prepare to return to the stadium. Strand assures June that anyone can start over.
In the present, June is revealed to be alive and part of the Vultures when she arrives at the designated meeting spot where Alicia and Melvin's group have a stand off. June arrives in a Land Rover and steps out. John is shocked to see her and walks toward her. Shocked and hurt by this deceit, Alicia reacts angrily towards this and shoots at June, but accidentally hits John as he steps in the way. He falls to the ground and June kneels beside him.
June tries to help John as he lies unconscious. Morgan runs over to help June while she gets medical supplies from an ambulance. Mel drives off in the ambulance. June runs after him to get the medical kit, but Alicia blows up the ambulance with a grenade launcher then strides up to June and accuses her of betraying their trust after bringing her in and blames her for taking away their home, but June hits her with a pipe and makes her escapes as the Vultures shoots at Alicia and June runs back to John’s side.
She tells Morgan that she knows where to find more medical supplies. Alicia corners June and John at gunpoint. Althea rides up in the SWAT vehicle and aims her guns at Alicia, forcing Alicia to reluctantly lower her weapon. Morgan helps June carry John inside the vehicle and urges Charlie to board if she wants to live. Charlie joins him. June instructs Althea to drive to the stadium.
After leaving, Althea demands to know what happened to cause the stadium to fall and Charlie defends June and claims responsibility for what happened to Alicia’s group.
In a flashback, Charlie takes June, Madison, Nick and Alicia to Mel, who is slumped over the driver’s seat of a bus after getting into an accident. In the infirmary, Mel obtains a knife and orders June to bring him to Charlie. June punches him in the ribs and snatches the knife back. Mel urges her to flee the stadium and invites her to leave with him and Charlie.
June joins Madison where stands in the baseball diamond with her hammer. She starts undoing some construction over one of the dugouts. She tells her that they are not safe. She wants to consider leaving, but Madison shoots it down, argues that this is what the Vultures want them to do. June explains that she has been on the wrong side of what's happening to her and it's not worth risking lives to protect. Later, June informs Madison that she has prepared the infirmary for Ennis' imminent attack.
In the present, Althea’s group arrives at the stadium in the SWAT vehicle. June explains that the Vultures never looted the stadium infirmary because even Ennis didn’t dare go inside after the stadium fell. Althea plows through the stadium gates. As the dust clears, June, Althea and Morgan see that the stadium is filled with charred Infected. The Infected swarm around the SWAT vehicle.
With John's bleeding temporarily stopped, June urges Al to get them to the closest entrance to the infirmary so she can get the medical supplies she needs. Al clears the way with her guns and June rushes inside along with Morgan Jones, fighting their way through walkers to the infirmary where she is able to get what she needs.
As they make their way out, Al contacts June to inform her that John is bleeding again and June gives her instructions. With Al claiming the way is clear, the two prepare to leave only to hear Alicia threatening Al over the radio. With John's condition worsening, Morgan and June argue about what to do before being confronted by Alicia. Though Alicia intends to kill June, Morgan is able to talk her down.
With the needed supplies recovered, the group leaves the stadium and June is successfully able to treat John's injuries and save his life. When John calls her Naomi, she reveals that Naomi is just another alias and her real name is June.
When the group stops for the night to finish the story, June listens to her friends explanation of how everything went down. June reveals that unlike everyone else, she didn't try to run and tried to talk everyone out of running. June had believed the walls could hold because of Madison but she was unable to change everyone's minds. Knowing the people were heading for trouble, June went for supplies but when she got back, it was too late because the caravan was overrun and the dead were coming at her. With no other choice, June ran until she couldn't anymore. Alicia points out that June still ran and joined the Vultures. As she hadn't been in the caravan, they thought she died inside the stadium. June revealed she thought they had died as well and when the Vultures found her, she joined them because she thought there wasn't anywhere else to go. Victor Strand acknowledges that June did what she had to and June listens with sadness to the rest of the story.
The list shows that June has killed:
- Ellen (Indirectly Caused; Zombified)
- Many unnamed ICU survivors (Indirectly Caused)
- Numerous counts of zombies
She is in a romantic relationship with John. John rescues an injured June and nurses her back to health. The apocalypse has left her with trust and commitment issues. To keep herself from getting close, she tells him her name is Laura. During her recovery, they fall in love. John believes she is the love of his life. Rather than lose him, she abandons him. John leaves safety of his cabin to find her. They are reunited during the confrontation between the Vultures and Alicia's group.
June and Alicia seem to have a stable relationship. It has been announced that June and Alicia will bond over the course of Season 4. After the revelation that June survived and joined the Vultures, Alicia became determined to kill her as she believed that June caused the fall of the stadium but she was ultimately talked out of it by Morgan Jones.
June initially distrusts Madison when Madison and her group find June's camp, holding her at gunpoint and trying to flee. June seems to begin to somewhat like and trust Madison after she and Alicia save her life from the oil drum. It can be assumed that they now have a good relationship as June agreed to stay at the baseball stadium.
