- "What about the bookends?"
- —Taggert referring to Gabe and Bruce.[src]
Almost nothing is known about Taggert's life before or as the outbreak began, except that he was a Mechanic from Macon.
The plot involved a kidnapping during the arena fights, where The Governor would be loaded into a truck and brought out into the woods where they could execute him. However, The Governor catches on at the last second, causing a loud noise and two of The Governor's close men to follow. The Governor's men were also captured, and escaped their bonds in the middle of the drive into the woods. Eventually, both groups are led into a Mexican standoff in the back of the van. However, this is cut short when a large group of zombies attack the van. Both groups decide they need to work together, and need The Governor alive, much to Lilly's anger. In the end, The Governor makes a compromise to end the bartering system, much to a humanitarian applause by Woodbury.
As they drive to a secure location away from Woodbury with The Governor and his men tied in the back, they run across one of the biggest herds encountered ever in Walking Dead history. Taggert tries to fight them off, but is overpowered and killed.
