"The signs.. they were real, it was a sanctuary. People came and took this place. And they raped, and they killed. They laughed.. over weeks, but we got out, and we fought and we got it back! And we heard the message! You're the butcher.. or you're the cattle."
—Mary to Carol.[src]

Mary is a survivor of the outbreak in AMC's The Walking Dead. She is a resident of Terminus, and is the mother of the Terminus leader Gareth, and his brother Alex.

Pre-Apocalypse

Location Unknown

Nothing is known about Mary's life before the outbreak or as the outbreak began except that she had at least two children, Gareth and Alex.

Post-Apocalypse

Sometime during the apocalypse, Mary is implied to have started Terminus with her sons, to which it was originally an actual sanctuary for survivors. A group of thugs came to Terminus and overtook it, in which she and the other residents took it back. However, the residents eventually adapted their captors' ways, and even began cannibalizing survivors who arrived for sanctuary.

Season 4

"Us"

After Glenn, Maggie, Bob, Tara, Sasha, Abraham, Eugene, and Rosita arrive in Terminus, they encounter Mary with her back turned to them as she tends to a grill with large slabs of meat. She welcomes them and offers them a meal.

"A"

In this episode, it was revealed that Mary is a high-ranking member of Terminus. Mary and the others of the community offer Rick, Carl, Daryl, and Michonne a meal, which she is currently cooking. However, Rick realizes that the attire of some of the residents belonged to Maggie and Glenn. He is also seen to focus on Alex's pocket.

Rick quickly reaches into his pocket to pull out Glenn's pocket watch, which was given to him by Hershel. Rick holds a gun to Alex's head, interrogating him on where they'd gotten the posessions. On Gareth's cue, his men begin to fire upon them and one bullet accidentally hits and kills Alex. Mary runs away as the battle begins.

Season 5

"No Sanctuary"

Mary is first seen in a flashback along with Gareth and Alex as they sit inside of a boxcar, revealing that the three were in a predicament similar to Rick's group until they took back Terminus from their attackers. 

Mary next can then be seen at the fence through Carol's gun scope, killing walkers when a herd approaches. Mary and the others flee from the fence, seeing the herd, and Carol destroys the large propane tank, destroying part of the fence to allow the herd to infiltrate the facility.

Mary finds Carol inside of the room with candles, ordering her to turn around and drop her weapons. Carol quickly counters, leaving Mary to duck her bullets. The two struggle, and Carol comes out on top. Carol holds Mary at gunpoint, demanding to know where the group is holding Rick and the others. Mary explains that Terminus originally was a sanctuary, but it became a place where they would lure people to take their posessions and ultimately, eat them. Carol asks Mary again where Rick and the others are, and when Mary doesn't cooperate, she shoots her in the leg. Mary then tells Carol that she could've been a resident of Terminus, to which Carol responds that she could never be like that. Instead of killing her, Carol opens up the door to the outside, allowing a group of walkers to come inside to devour the crippled Mary. 

In a second flashback, we see Mary being put back in the boxcar with Gareth and Alex. It is implied Mary was raped by the men who had overtaken Terminus.

Killed Victims

This is a list of victims that Mary has killed:

  • Numerous counts of zombies and possibly unnamed people.

Death

Killed By

Carol shot Mary in the leg and then opened a door to let in walkers to eat her alive.

Relationships

Gareth

Mary is Gareth's mom and they seem to care a lot about each other, specifically during the time they were captive inside the train car.

Alex

"Mom, mom, it's okay - it's okay!"
—Alex trying to calm down his mother after being tortured by the Terminus' assailants.[src]

Mary is Alex's mom and they seem to have a stable relationship. Oddly enough, Alex referred to her as "Mary" instead of mom while asking her to make plates for the survivors. Mary doesn't show sadness when Alex is killed and is seen killing walkers at the fence shortly afterwards without a hint of emotion or distraught. She also didn't object to having her son's corpse dissected for food.
