The Junkyard is a location that first appeared in "New Best Friends" of AMC's The Walking Dead. It was a Junkyard before the outbreak, and now serves as the home of The Scavengers led by Jadis.

Background Information


Before the apocalypse, this place was a normal junkyard. At the onset of the epidemic when society crumbled, it was largely abandoned except for a group of survivors who made it their home. Jadis used to visit this junkyard to gather and paint on materials such as metal sheets and fabrics.


Shortly after the outbreak, a group of survivors took the junkyard as their home and were known as the Scavengers. Living out of shipping containers in mounds of rubbish, the Scavengers get by gathering goods and stealing from others while maintaining solar panels and establishing some sort of society in their junkyard home. Near the entrance, there is a gladiator pit for newcomers to prove their worthiness.

Deal with Alexandria

At some point, after the outbreak, the group found a houseboat on a lake full of zombies. They waited for someone to get the supplies on it so that they could then take it from them. After Rick and Aaron took them, Tamiel followed them back to the Alexandria Safe-Zone. There she forced Gabriel to pack all the food supplies of the community and then took him with her.

On their way to find Gabriel, Rick and a few other members of his group ran into the Junkyard group, who took them into the Junkyard. There Rick struck a deal with the group after fighting a walker with spikes, with him agreeing to provide the Junkyard with weapons and supplies in exchange for their assistance in fighting the Saviors. After the deal was made Rick and his group left the Junkyard. With the death of all the Scavengers except Jadis, the junkyard is only now occupied by Jadis.
