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 Morgan'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.
A month later, the group appears to have split up. As Morgan approaches and asks for John, June prepares a fish sitting in the back of a school bus.
Later, June is patching up John, saying he will be able to fish again soon. A hesitant June asks John if he's sure about returning to his cabin, to which he insists its safe.
They are interrupted when they notice Althea saving Charlie from a river walker. Back on the bridge, June advises Charlie to think about what happened with the walker and then leaves with Althea to figure out why walkers are washing up. Althea volunteers to lead June and John to the cabin before she leaves in the morning.
On the road, June and Althea discover a box that reads, “Take what you need, leave what you don’t. See you further up on the road.” They find MRE’s and supplies and Althea decides to record it. June asks her about John’s interviews and Althea says she only knows about her Laura and Naomi aliases.
As they continue walking, June asks Althea to turn the camera off for a moment. June laments to Althea that she’s not the Laura John fell in love with. She explains that was a scared version of her, and she’s afraid if she returns to the cabin with him he’ll realize she’s not who he thinks. Al doesn’t buy it and reminds her she’s not as different as she thinks. They decide to head back to the truck when they sense a storm coming their way.
As the storm hits, June and Althea get stuck in the truck, which gets pelted with walkers from the wind.
After the storm passes, June and Althea remain on the road. June watches John’s story on Althea’s tapes and radios him to thank him for the kind words he said on the tape. Althea returns and tells her to conserve the battery on the radio. Without gas, they’re forced to hang out by the truck for a day.
The next morning, they hear someone on the walkie. June asks if it’s John but is met with silence. Althea starts feeling ill due to lack of food and water, so June convinces her to come with her to track down the person on the radio.
On the road, June and Althea locate a truck and find a box telling them to take what they need. They drive the truck back and June apologizes for using all the battery in her camera. Althea forgives her and tells her that she never really had anyone before the apocalypse because of her strenuous work life. They try the walkie again and unknown to them, they are overheard by the woman Morgan communicated with before. For a moment, Morgan hears June over the radio. He walks off to try to find a better signal. June tries to answer but the signal doesn't allow it. Althea, meanwhile, begins vomiting. She has a fever and tries to downplay it.
Suddenly, the SWAT truck drives past June and Althea. Althea chases after it, dangerously speeding the truck, which maneuvers around a refrigerator and causes them to pop a tire and spin out. Althea, who’s getting sicker by the second, reveals to June that all her medicine is in the truck.
June struggles to replace their truck tire while Al’s condition continues to worsen. They hear the SWAT truck guns down the road and Al begs June to run over to it, which she reluctantly agrees to. She quickly locates it but is held at gunpoint by a man, who asks where her friend is. Turns out he overheard them on the radio.
June pleads that she just wants the medicine, but he won’t budge. She grabs his arm and they wrestle for the gun until June wins. She runs over to the truck to discover it’s out of gas again. Inside, June can’t find the medicine and demands the man to tell her where it is, but he pleads ignorance, so she lets him go.
June radios Althea to ask where the medicine is, but she doesn’t respond because she’s busy fighting off a swamp walker while trying to stay awake. Althea finally kills it by crushing it with the truck and radios June to tell her there was no medicine and she just wanted her to get the van back.
June returns with medicine she found on the bus, which instantly helps Althea recover. June is furious that she almost killed someone for medicine that wasn't there, but Althea brushes it off. June’s still upset, and demands to know why the truck matters to her so much. Althea confesses the tapes in her van are all she has left of the people she used to know and love.
Morgan climbs a water tower to communicate his location with a stronger signal, and June and Althea miraculously hear him. June attempts to contact him, however, their walkie dies but June says they have the gas to make it to his location. Unable to abandon the SWAT truck, Althea tells June to go without her. June pleads for her to stay but Althea leaves anyway. As June drives off, Althea fires her gun and then decides to come along after all.
June and Althea drive behind Morgan and his new group. They finally reunite and Morgan tells June he still hasn’t found the others. Morgan introduces them to Sarah, Wendell and Jim and offers them water from the "take what you need" box while June takes Morgan’s walkie to radio the man from before.
Alone, June radios to the person who left the boxes. "I'm sorry about what I did," she says. "I'm sorry I made you walk away. I wanna show you that you're wrong. Sometimes we don't just watch out for the people we know. Mile marker 27 on 365. I'm with a group of people. We've got food, water, supplies, everything you need to get back on your feet." She invites him to come with her and he reveals his name to be Quinn and she introduces herself as June.
He eventually shows up at the agreed upon mile marker and asks where she is, and to their confusion, they’re both “at” mile marker 27. Quinn discovers a “7” was stuck on to the sign when suddenly he’s attacked and eaten by a walker controlled by Martha. June is left wondering what happened to him.
At night, June hopelessly searches for Quinn, along with Althea. Morgan is willing to continue, but the others are looking forward to moving on.
After Sarah kills a walker, Jim notices the “Take what you need” message marked on its forehead and June immediately radios Quinn. However, she only hears walker groans on the other side, followed by Martha telling her he’s dead. Morgan recognizes the voice and radios her.
The woman immediately recognizes Morgan. She learned it from watching Althea's tapes and insists people getting help makes them weak. She wants them to stop trying to help people, which will make them strong again, and she won't have to intervene.
The next day, Morgan plants more boxes to try to help people. This time, he instructs people to radio him on VHF channel 4. June is hopeful John will see one of these. Morgan is confident they'll find him and everyone else.
On the road, June and the rest pick up Luciana and continue on their way. Suddenly, they are contacted by Charlie and Alicia on the radio.
Alicia tells them she found the channel from the box. Morgan tells her to wait at the mile marker and that they are gonna pick them, when suddenly, Martha radios both of them and warns Morgan of not taking her advice to stop leaving the boxes.
Morgan tells her he’ll continue to find the people they’re looking for until they find and help her. Sarah spots Althea’s SWAT truck appear behind them. Panicked, Morgan radios Martha to ask what she’s doing and she tells him, “You lose people... You lose yourself.” Morgan tells the group to get down just as the woman pulls the truck beside them, opens the gun hatch and opens fire.
June and the others slowly get up after the gunfire stops. Morgan notices leaking fuel and says they need to get out of the truck immediately. June, Morgan, Althea and Luciana get out of the truck. Althea goes after Martha with a knife, but falls back as Martha emerges from the back and releases a zombified Quinn onto June.
Wendell shoots Martha in the chest and Morgan puts down Quinn before June can get bitten, when suddenly, the truck explodes and attracts a herd from the woods. Martha smiles and drives off in the SWAT truck as the group flees.
June and the others walk along the road with the herd in pursuit. June insists on checking everyone’s injuries from the shootout. Morgan spots a sign for a hospital. Jim questions Morgan’s leadership and refuses to go to the hospital with the group. He changes his mind, however, when he sees the herd getting closer.
At the hospital, Morgan guards the entrance, which he's barricaded with furniture. June updates him on everyone’s condition and assures Morgan that he made the right call in taking them to the hospital.
After the herd breaks through the front door barricade, Morgan leads the group onto a floor that is clear of walkers. They barricade the stairwell entrance. Morgan suggests they secure the other stairwells.
June, Luciana and Wendell flee as the walkers break through the stairwell barricade. The group meets at the elevators. The lights turn on and the elevator doors open. The group piles into the elevator just in time to escape the herd.
On the roof, June checks Jim's injuries and realizes he has been bitten on the back. Jim reels from the news and storms off, realizing his death is imminent. June assures a saddened Morgan that he will find a way to get them out.
On the roof, June assures Morgan that they'll find a way off somehow.
June and the group, except for Jim, venture back into the hospital to locate Althea. Instead, they find Althea's note telling them she's going to try to escape, along with instructions on protecting her tapes if she dies. Morgan leaves to find her while June and the rest stay behind.
Back on the roof, Morgan tells June and the group that he'll find a way to distract the walkers below to let the rest escape. Suddenly, John radios Morgan to give him the all-clear on speaking freely on the walkies and June responds immediately. They’re both elated to talk to one another. June gives him her location and he says they’re on their way.
Morgan tosses a walker off the ledge an onto a car, attracting the walkers away from the hospital entrance. "Momo's a goddamn genius", Sarah beams as she and the rest escape into the ambulance. June radios Morgan to follow them, but he tells her to go without him and stays on the roof with Jim.
After a while, June radios Morgan again, this time she's with John and the others in the SWAT truck. Alicia and the others chime in on the radio, telling him they're going to save him. Morgan looks down and sees their plan: a fire truck.
While Morgan tosses his stick down and gingerly begins climbing down the building, June, Alicia and Luciana draw a herd of walkers and barely make it back to the fire truck alive, only to find Martha missing.
As the group gets surrounded by walkers, Jim decides to sacrifice himself to save them. Before he does, he radios Sarah the recipe for his beer. She writes it down, Jim takes a deep breath, and throws himself off the ledge and onto a car, attracting the walkers away from the fire truck.
On the road, Sarah decides they should name the beer "Jimbo's Beerbos" in his memory. Morgan proposes they find Althea and then travel to Alexandria together.
After the group finds Al, June and John tell her they found her alone in the street with a tape from Martha. At night, the group sits around a campfire and Morgan describes his plan to pick up more boxes at the truck stop to distribute them en route to Alexandria.
The next day, the group arrives at the truck stop and stocks up on supplies from the store. June and John have a conversation, where June confesses to John she was worried he would be disappointed in learning she was a different person than he thought, but he assures her she’s everything he thought and kisses her.
Outside, Althea loads the van when some walkers approach. Al jumps down to fight them, but is too weak and passes out. Alicia shoots at the herd and then instructs everyone to get inside as the noise will attract more.
Inside, everyone doubles over in pain as more walkers scrape at the windows. June realizes that someone opened the water bottles in the store and poisoned the water. Al deduces it was Martha. June tells Morgan that Martha poisoned the water but loses contact.
Finally able to communicate, Morgan tells them it’s anti-freeze. June tells them the antidote is ethanol and the group hatches a plan to get it from one of the trucks outside.
June and Charlie create a distraction while the rest kill the walkers and push forward. Althea jumps in her SWAT truck and machine guns the walkers outside, while accidentally putting holes into the tank and causing the ethanol to drain out.
June updates Morgan on their problem and he tells them he can’t lose them. John encourages him and says he’s strong with or without them.
Suddenly, Morgan shows up and reveals that he brought a truck of Jim's Augie’s Ale, saving the day. The group drinks the beer and suddenly regain their strength. Junes watches as John jokingly warns Charlie that this is the last time she drinks a beer until she is 21.
Morgan then brings June and the group back to the place he left Martha. He finds her severed arm attached to the police car and sees her turned, walking on the road. He stabs her in the head and then buries her.
Morgan tells everyone he’s no longer going to Alexandria. He says that Martha became the person she was because nobody helped her when she needed it and that more people need help.
The group arrives at Clayton's supply factory and Morgan says they should follow his path and help others. Alicia says it can’t just be about boxes, they need to build something like Madison would want. Althea suggests they can start with the people she interviewed.
Shortly after, June and the group mobilizes a convoy of vehicles outside the factory. They load up on ammo and head out. Morgan gets on his walkie and broadcasts that they are coming to help anyone who might be in need.
This list shows the victims 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 allows him to call her with a fake name, "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.
- She is the first main character to be introduced in a flashback in Fear the Walking Dead.
- Her alias of Laura was given to her by John Dorie when she wouldn't give him her name. John thought she looked like a Laura. She later reveals that the name Naomi is just another alias but gives John her real name when she reunites with him.
