Maggie Greene is one of the main protagonists and survivor of the outbreak in AMC's The Walking Dead. She is the eldest daughter of Hershel and Josephine Greene, step-daughter to Annette Greene, and half-sister of Beth and step-sister to Shawn. A tomboy and a farmer's daughter with a steely personality, Maggie wears jeans, boots, tank tops, and rides a horse. She is married to Glenn.
Maggie spent her first 22 years on Hershel's Farm. Her mother had died when she was young, and this had led her father to marry another woman, who left her distraught (wanting to smoke and shoplift). Despite this, however, she grew to have a loving relationship with her step-mother, Annette, and step-brother, Shawn. She also had a good relationship with Otis, who had been their ranch foreman for several years. It's known that she graduated high school and attended college; however, it's unknown if she dropped out or was still enrolled by the time the outbreak began.
When the infection spread, her neighbors and family members succumbed to it and turned into walkers. Hershel kept her, Beth, Beth's boyfriend, Jimmy, Otis, and his wife, Patricia, all safe by barricading them within the farm. She occasionally made runs into town to retrieve needed supplies.
When Maggie first witnesses Rick running towards the property with injured Carl in his hands, she calls out to the other residents of the farm for medical help. Maggie then asks Rick where his wife is, volunteering to find her so that Rick can remain at the farm with his son. She heads into the woods on horseback and encounters Andrea, Carol, Daryl, and Glenn, while saving Andrea from being bitten by a walker before informing Lori that Carl has been shot. After convincing Lori to come with her on horseback, she gives the others the location of the farm and rides off.
When Glenn and T-Dog make it to the farm, Patricia tends to T-Dog's injured arm while Maggie talks to Glenn on the Greene's front porch. When Shane returns with the news of Otis' death, Maggie is devastated. She is found crying in front of the refrigerator by Glenn, and tells him that she knew Otis her entire life.
Maggie is seen showing the Atlanta Survivors the landscape and areas to find Sophia, and also volunteers to go to the pharmacy with Glenn to gather supplies. Before departing, she also helps with Glenn and the others as they struggle to get the walker out of the well. At the pharmacy, Maggie notices Glenn finding condoms (he was really searching for a pregnancy test for Lori) and Maggie scoffs at him, before saying she would like to have sex with him. They have sex, however, on the way back, Maggie says it was a one-time thing, much to Glenn's disappointment.
She is seen coming out of the farmhouse as Glenn sits on the porch with a guitar. They talk and joke about the condoms and she is still questioning whether she likes Glenn or not. Later she is in the house helping Carol, Lori, Beth, and Patricia with setting up the table for a nice dinner with both groups of survivors. She is confronted by her father about what people are doing without his permission as well as he seems to hint towards the relationship between her and Glenn and warns her not to pursue it as they will not be around much longer. She tells Hershel that she's old enough to know what to do and walks away from the conversation. After, she and Glenn are seen passing each other notes about where to have sex next. Maggie however doesn't read the note until after when she is cleaning up. She is shocked as to where Glenn wrote the location and is seen at night in the barn telling him that he wasn't supposed to see inside the barn.
Maggie sees Glenn looking at the barn with binoculars and tells him that he is being obvious about Hershel's secret, saying, "Could you be any more obvious?" After talking about the walkers in the barn and Maggie pleading with Glenn to keep the secret from his group, he tells her that he is making another run to the pharmacy for Lori. Maggie agrees to go along with him. On the way to the pharmacy, her and Glenn discuss walkers, and she reveals that she believes there is a cure and says that she doesn't use the term "walkers." When Glenn asks what she calls them instead, she replies with several names including her mother and brother. Once inside the pharmacy, she receives a list of supplies to gather from Glenn. While searching for an item, she is attacked by a walker. Glenn reacts quickly to the close call by nearly severing the zombie's head with a shelf. After it gets back up, he attacks it viciously with a blade. When Maggie returns to the camp with Glenn, she throws Lori's supplies at her, clearly upset by how close Lori put her to dying. She storms off, with Glenn following her shortly after, and tells Glenn that she thinks he is smart and is a leader, but that the others in his group refuse to acknowledge that. She believes that they consider him "walker-bait."
Maggie is upset with Glenn about him telling Dale and then everyone else about the walkers in the barn. Glenn tells her that he'd rather have her mad at him and alive than happy with him and dead. Maggie then realizes that it was for the greater good. The two are on great terms after that, passionately kissing and returning to being a couple. She tries to convince Hershel to let the group stay at the farm and notes that he's changed recently. She and her father force themselves to watch their neighbors and family members get put down by the group.
Maggie asks Glenn if he would stay if the rest of his group were to leave, but Glenn is unsure how to answer. Glenn confides to Rick that Maggie told him she loved him. Rick says that they need more good things like that in their lives, and that he should embrace those moments.
At the farm house, Beth is still in a state of shock, not being able to react to anything. Maggie tells Andrea a story about Beth finding her birth control pills and how she lied to their father to keep her out of trouble. Maggie pulls Glenn aside and asks him if anything is wrong, he explains how her father saved his life, and that he froze and could not do anything to help. He had froze because she told him that she loved him, and he was afraid to die because of how it would affect her. She tries to embrace him, but he pushes her away.
Maggie confesses to Lori that Glenn lost confidence after the shootout at the bar. Maggie scolds Beth for considering suicide while Beth tries to convince Maggie that they should kill themselves. "I don't want to be gutted," she says. "I want to go in this bed, tonight". Maggie finds Andrea and forbids she ever enter the house for leaving Beth to try to commit suicide.
Maggie does not have a big role in this episode, but later that night, Maggie is seen at Dale's death as he was about to be shot by Daryl to prevent further reanimation.
Maggie is seen talking with the group when they are moving into Hershel's home. Maggie is also seen talking with Glenn. Maggie tells him that he can move his possessions into her room but he declines the offer and says he will move into another room. After this she is seen investigating the barn after Randall is set free by Shane.
During the walker attack on the farm, Maggie and Glenn drive the SUV Shane had previously fixed up as an attempt to distract the walkers from the barn, where Rick and Carl were holding up. Glenn convinces her the farm is lost and the two drive off. After an undetermined number of hours, Maggie worries about the fate of her family and, as a result, becomes emotionally distraught. Glenn takes over driving for her, but not before he tells her that he loves her, something he was unable to say in previous episodes. The two later regroup with the rest of the survivors and discover that Jimmy and Patricia did not make it off the farm alive. After running low on fuel while on a caravan, everyone camps along the side of the road, waiting for morning to come.
Maggie is seen with the group when they stumble upon an abandoned house and Rick, Carl, Daryl, and T-Dog kill the Walkers inside of it. The group is forced to flee, however, when another herd of walkers begin to approach their location. After Daryl and Rick stumble upon the prison while hunting, Maggie helps out to distract and kill the walkers (showing that similar to Carol, Maggie has no problem with killing Walkers) while Rick runs inside the prison yard to close the main gate. At night, Maggie assists her sister Beth in singing an Irish drinking song. The next day, Maggie assists Rick, Daryl, Glenn, and T-Dog in killing the remainder of the Walkers on the interior of the prison, and is the first one to successfully kill one of the walkers dressed in riot gear. The romantic relationship between her and Glenn continues as the two share a cell on the inside of the prison and cuddle as Glenn checks her for scratch marks. The next day after sleeping in the inside of the prison, Rick, Daryl, T-Dog, Glenn, Maggie, and Hershel suit up and explore more of the inside of the prison in search of its infirmary and cafeteria. The group is ambushed by Walkers, causing both Maggie and Glenn to split up from the rest. Hershel insists that himself, Rick, Daryl, and T-Dog go back to look for them, and Hershel manages to find them, but is bit in the right calf by a Lurker lying against the wall. Maggie assists them in taking Hershel to the cafeteria, and is present when Rick amputates the lower portion of Hershel's right leg to keep the infection from spreading.
Maggie, like the others who doesn't deal with the prisoners, appears mostly by Hershel's side in this episode. Maggie has a hard time coping with her father's condition and is consoled by Glenn. Glenn told Maggie to stay strong and that she's not alone in this. He told Maggie to check on Beth and see how she's doing. Maggie finds Beth ripping Hershel's Pants and she asked what her little sister is doing. Maggie's pessimistic attitude is questioned by Beth, and Beth got angry at her for giving up on their father so easily. After that, Maggie finds Glenn handcuffing Hershel just to be safe. Maggie wanted to be left alone with her father, and the others wait for her outside of Hershel's cell. Maggie has an emotional moment alone with Hershel, telling him that it's okay and that he doesn't have to fight anymore. She will accept it if it's time for him to go, and told him not to worry about Beth and herself. After a while, Hershel stopped breathing and Beth panics. Beth yelled to Lori to give him CPR. After that, Lori gave Hershel a successful CPR. At the end of the episode, Hershel finally wakes up and Maggie and Beth cried tears of relief while holding each other.
Maggie doesn't appear in this episode.
After attempting to seek safety inside the prison, Carl, Lori, and Maggie are confronted by a small horde of walkers, causing them to flee into the maze of the prison. Soon after their run, Lori goes into labor. The group of three then flee into the boiler room, to aid Lori. After attempting to birth the child naturally, Lori tells Maggie to preform a Cesarean Section to safely birth the child. Maggie tearfully begs Lori not to make her do it, as she has no medical supplies on hand and the delivery of the baby would inevitably cost Lori her life. But she is soon persuaded by Lori to go through with the C-section anyway. She apologizes to Lori and Carl for what she is about to do. Using Carl's knife, Maggie cuts Lori open on her previous C-section scar, and pulls out her baby. After a few moments of silence from the baby, it starts to cry in Maggie's arms. After a tearful goodbye, Carl shoots his mother, to prevent her from reanimating. Maggie and Carl venture back outside to be reunited with the rest of the group, and also to break the news of Lori's death to Rick. She sobs over the loss as Glenn holds her and the baby in his arms.
Maggie is disturbed by the events of the previous episode, especially Lori's death, and is being consoled by Glenn. When Rick departs to retrieve Lori's body, she attempts to stop him, to no avail. Hershel states that the baby requires formula to survive and she, Daryl, and Glenn volunteer to go. Because the place they are going to has a narrow road, Daryl can only take one person on his bike. Maggie says that she needs to go, for Lori. Daryl and her ride off to the local nursery. They search the building and find it clear of walkers. She manages to scavenge baby supplies, especially formula. Daryl and her then head back to the prison. Once the baby is fed, they all sit in the cell block and attempt thinking of a name.
Maggie and Glenn make a run into town to find gas, batteries, and baby formula. Unknown to them, an injured Michonne watches them from behind a car. When she and Glenn prepare to leave, Merle Dixon comes up behind them. Glenn and Maggie raise their guns at Merle. When Merle and Glenn recognize each other, Glenn lowers his gun. Merle tries to calmly find out where they are staying, but he ends up attacking Maggie. With Maggie held at gunpoint, he demands that Glenn drive them to Woodbury. Once there, she is locked up for interrogation.
She hears Merle interrogating Glenn, and begins to cry when she hears Merle beating him. After Merle is done with Glenn, he is about to go interrogate her, but The Governor insists on doing it instead. He goes in and cuts off her restraints. At first, he feigns kindness and attempts to get her to divulge the group's whereabouts, but she refuses. He then resorts to a different approach, and orders her to take off her shirt. She refuses, but he says he will bring Glenn's hand in if she doesn't. She takes off her shirt, and he then makes her take off her bra. After she does, he bluffs raping her, coming from behind and pushing her face into the table. He then takes her to Glenn at gunpoint, still topless. Assuming he raped her, Glenn attempts to attack him. When The Governor points his gun at Glenn's head, Maggie divulges everything. The Governor embraces her, and she begins crying. He leaves, and Maggie runs into Glenn's arms.
Glenn and Maggie are first seen sitting in the room with the dead walker Glenn had killed. Glenn breaks off a shard of bone from the walker's forearm and hands it to Maggie. Glenn and Maggie stage a successful ambush of Merle and Warren, when they arrive to take them to the "screamer pits" (with Maggie killing Warren by stabbing him in the throat with the bone shard), but they are restrained when Martinez arrives and holds them at gunpoint. While being escorted a second time, Rick's group approach and uses a flash grenade, before rescuing Glenn and Maggie. Maggie takes part in the Woodbury shootout and witnesses Oscar being fatally shot by one of the soldiers. She then shoots Oscar in the head to prevent reanimation. Maggie also trains her gun on Michonne along with Rick and Glenn when she rejoins them outside of Woodbury following the shootout.
Maggie re-enters Woodbury to assist Rick in setting Daryl free. She shoots and kills Haley along with various walkers, before escaping with Rick, Merle, and Daryl. They discuss Merle's fate, and determine that he can't stay. Upon Daryl's decision to depart with Merle, she bids him farewell. Later on, while moving a tree and car out of the road, Glenn throws a fit and fights with Rick and Maggie. When Maggie arrives at the prison, Beth hugs her and Hershel tells Beth to take Maggie inside the prison. Later on, Maggie sees Glenn being checked up by Hershel and she awkwardly avoids Glenn and enters another cell. Hershel came and talk to her and told her that he can rest easy knowing that she can take care of herself. He jokingly stated that she got her mother's spirit and stubbornness. She is present while Rick is discussing the fate of Tyreese and his group. When Rick suddenly throws a fit, Maggie tries to calm him down but he lashes out at her and she retracts. She and the others stare in confusion at Rick as to why his mood suddenly changed.
Maggie is in the common room of The Prison, where Glenn reveals his plan to sneak attack Woodbury and execute The Governor, along with Michonne, and she then storms off. Glenn goes to talk to her, and he insists that they talk about her encounter with The Governor and he asks if she was raped. She snaps at him before telling him all that happened and answering that she was not raped. Glenn reaches out to her but she shoves him away, bitterly asking if he feels better now that he knows the full story. Later, while Maggie is still resting in her cell, Beth walks in and ask Maggie to hold Judith while she's going to make Hershel some food. Maggie feeds Judith a bottle of milk with some guidance from Beth. Beth holds Maggie's hands to make her feel better. During Woodbury's attack on The Prison, Maggie called out to Beth and handed her some guns. She covers for Carol so she can run to Carl and Beth, and she sees Hershel surrounded by walkers from afar. She kills an enemy sniper shooting at them from one of the guard towers and rushes out into the prison field with Carol, Beth, and Carl to rescue Hershel. She kissed her father on the cheek after he survived the onslaught. She and Glenn hold hands as they watched the walkers on the prison field with horror.
Maggie is seen with the group when they discuss the situation with The Governor. Maggie lashes out at Merle and wants him moved to another cell block, blaming him for starting the war between Woodbury and the group, but Beth holds her off. Maggie is the first to see Andrea coming to the Prison, and tells Carl to alert Rick and the others. When Andrea enters the prison, Maggie and the others inform her of Phillip's doing and that he's the first one to start the war between them by kidnapping Maggie and Glenn. Maggie also informs Andrea that Lori and T-Dog died in the prison. Later on, when Andrea asked Carol how Lori had died, she told her that Maggie had to perform C-section on Lori because they were separated by that time and neither Hershel or her were available to perform it. When Andrea leaves the prison, Maggie and the others bid her farewell and they let her take some supplies and a car. On that night, Maggie and the others listen to Beth singing and she appreciates her singing as a way to calm the group before the war with the governor.

Maggie remains at the prison. She and the others are managing weapons around the prison to get ready for the upcoming war between Woodbury and the Prison. She attempts to stop Merle from leaving, and later tackles him in a choke hold as he grapples with Glenn, who too was trying to stop Merle from leaving, but Beth quickly end the fight with a single shot into the air. She later reconciles with Glenn when they are keeping watch and the two make love inside a storage room. She appears at the end of the episode listening to Rick's speech about going to war with The Governor.

She is seen later when they return with Woodbury residents in a bus.
Maggie is first seen waking up beside Glenn, telling him that she will be going on the supply run to the Big Spot. Glenn tells her to stay and she agrees, reminding him that everything will be okay. Later that night, Maggie tells Glenn that she is not pregnant (which is why Glenn did not want her to go on the supply run). After the two hug, she tells him that they could have had a baby though and that she wants to be alive, just not breathing and take the chance in the future.
She is first seen with Glenn in one of the watch towers and she wakes up after he takes a picture of her sleeping before he leaves. She is then seen on watch as cell block D is attacked and goes to rescue Michonne who was being attacked by walkers. She then goes up with Carl and Michonne to the cell blocks where they find out from Rick what's going on. Later she calls for Rick and Daryl's help with the walkers at the fence and desperately tries to kill each of them like the others until Rick and Daryl use the pigs to draw the walkers away.

Later in the episode, Maggie runs into Hershel, who is wanting to go into the isolated cell block and to help the sick. Maggie, along with Rick, plead him not to go in, knowing that he could get sick. Hershel refuses and goes in, saying that he knows he can help the sick. She then talks to Beth again, with both of them saying they need to be strong.

Maggie is first seen speaking to Hershel through the glass about the status of Glenn. Hershel lies and tells her that Glenn is sleeping, when he is actually helping him with the sick. Maggie then opens the gate for Rick as he arrives back to the prison. While heading in, Maggie asks Rick where Carol is. Rick is honest with her and tells her that she admitted that she killed Karen and David and that he left her. Maggie tells Rick that she agrees with his decision, but is not sure she could of done it. Rick replies to her by saying that she could have and to never doubt herself.
Maggie is later seen helping Rick pin logs against the fence that is starting to give way to the walkers. While helping, Rick falls down after being grabbed by a walker, to which Maggie hurries and chops off the walkers arm.
Moments later Maggie is chopping logs with Rick when they hear a gunshot coming from inside the prison. Maggie continues to chop the wood, saying they need to support the fence, but Rick tells her to check out the situation in the prison and they can finish the chopping the logs when she returns. Once inside she looks through the door and sees that the sick are in panic. She tries to wedge the door open with an axe but is unsuccessful. She then shoots out the window to get inside the cell block and saves Hershel. She then goes over to a deathly ill Glenn and helps Hershel revive him. She is then seen by Glenn's side as Bob gives him medicine and telling Hershel to get some rest.

She and Beth split up and Maggie goes to evacuate the cell blocks and save Glenn, while Beth goes to get the bus ready to drive. Maggie later gets Glenn and the others to the bus only to find Beth missing, and Jeanette tells her that she went to go find Judith. Maggie then meets up with Sasha and Bob.
