Tyreese - Wikipedia
A softer, gentler side of Karen is explored before her death in Season 4. This is due to numerous factors, namely her growing relationship with Tyreese. It might have been short, but the relationship between Sasha and Bob was most relied on the soft-heartedness and level-head of her brother Tyreese to help. And for Tyreese's sister, Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green), it's the latest I have great relationships with offcamera — it was a quiet reassurance.
We had to find a way for Abraham to connect with Sasha for him to say good-bye specifically to Sasha. We had already established in the finale of last year that eye contact was not broken. He got knocked down, he came back up. We could add dialogue, but there was no way for him to turn away or nod nothing to Sonequa. Going back into it, we had to figure out a way to tell Sonequa, tell Sasha, that everything would be okay and to say good-bye. That was what we came up with. Like getting Maggie to the Hilltop when she and her baby were not well — and we lost family on that mission but we were all ready to sacrifice ourselves to carry on those legacies.
Sasha feels like she's carrying out Abraham's legacy. She noted that Sasha was "very selfish when she first came into the zombie apocalypse and was more focused on the self-preservation of it all. She had a lot of defense mechanisms in place and was only concerned about survival and didn't care about connecting with anyone. She put a wall up and that was how she made it through. Then when she lost Bob and Tyreese, that wall broke down completely and she spiraled all the way down and had to come back up and realize that she was scared but was strong enough to take the risk to connect with people.
So after losing Abraham, it's just confirmation that her purpose is not a selfish one. Now she's expanded her understanding of life and those around her. Sasha now sees that her purpose is greater than herself and that perhaps she's not the one to have a relationship.
She sees that her service to this world is going to be different than what she originally thought, and she's willing to make that sacrifice. He elaborated, "She had wanted a weapon from Eugene.
She wanted a knife. She didn't get one, so she became the knife. She said, "It was quite poetic [ I felt like all of my roads had led to that moment of getting to that place of complete selflessness.
Also, it was beautiful because the way I saw it, that warrior spirit lives on. That even in death, I was still going to fight, because I had realized my purpose. It had been revealed to me. Everything before that had been self-preservation, self-defense mechanisms, basically self-obsession. And over the course of my life as Sasha, it was progressing beyond that to the point that I said, 'O.
However, she dismissed these claims and said, " It was the path. It was definitely in place. And then as we were going into the very end of the season, the very end of our shoot for the season that's when the opportunity for Star Trek came. It was after Walking Dead was already ending that the opportunity for Star Trek came. She said, "I didn't know it would be the suicide pill and the Negan of it all. What Scott did tell me is that it would be heroic and sacrificial and that it would be perfect end to the story.
He'd thought about it for a long time and had a vision of it for a very long time. They are found by Carl Chandler Riggswho leads them into the foyer of the cell block. After Rick's group returns from WoodburyRick almost accepts them into his group. However, after hallucinating Lori Sarah Wayne CalliesRick tells Lori to get out, but Sasha's group leaves the prison in a misunderstanding.
The Governor appoints Sasha and Tyreese as soldiers, specifically as "wall guards.
Andrea also warns them about The Governor before she leaves. Later, Sasha goes to the walker pit, where she and Tyreese are shocked to hear about The Governor's plans for the prison. Sasha also witnesses the fight between Tyreese and Allen but when Tyreese tries to push Allen into the walker pit Sasha begs Tyreese not to and he listens. When Rick, Daryl Norman Reedus and Michonne arrive at Woodbury after the attack with Karen Melissa PonzioTyreese and Sasha are at first hostile, but after Karen tells about The Governor massacring his army, let them in Woodbury where they learn Andrea never made it to the prison and is actually captive in the town itself.
After Andrea's death, caused by the Governor leaving Milton to turn and bite her, Sasha, Tyreese, Karen and the remaining Woodbury citizens return to the prison with Rick. In the season premiere " 30 Days Without an Accident ", she is reluctant to let Bob Stookey go to the Big Spot supply run, but is eventually convinced by Bob.
At the Big Spot, when walkers start falling through the ceiling, Sasha, along with all her companions except Zach Kyle Gallnerwho is bitten by a walker, are forced to leave the building after an army helicopter crashes through the roof, without any supplies.
In the episode " Infected ", after the D-Block attack, Sasha is at the prison council meeting regarding the new disease that killed Patrick Vincent Martellawhen they hear Karen, Tyreese's new girlfriend, coughing. After realizing this is a symptom of the new disease, Sasha, along with Karen, comfort Tyreese, and transport her to A-Block. When a hoard of walkers is attracted to the prison after the gunshots fired during the D-Block attack, Sasha notices that someone has been feeding the walkers rats, before the fence starts to come down.
She then helps place two supporting beams when Rick and Daryl draw the walkers away from the fence. In the episode " Isolation ", Sasha is revealed to have contracted the disease. In the episode " Internment ", she is one of the people infected but still assists Hershel and Glenn in treating the other sick patients. In the mid-season finale episode " Too Far Gone " she along with Maggie and Bob are separated from the main group after an attack by The Governor and his followers on the prison.
In the mid-season premiere " Inmates ", Sasha, Maggie and Bob find the prison bus, hoping to find Glenn inside; instead it is filled with undead prison residents which they kill. Sasha tries to convince Bob to find a safe place to stay but he still wants to go to Terminus with Maggie. When Bob and Sasha find out Maggie left for Terminus they go after her.
Sasha finds a safe building and she tries to convince Bob to come with her, but Bob kisses her and goes after Maggie. Sasha looks out of the building's window and sees Maggie under attack. Sasha and Maggie fight off walkers and go after Bob.
Reunited, the three head for Terminus. The group decides to settle down in the tunnel that night and Sasha learns of Abraham's mission and Eugene's claims. She agrees to go on with the group to Washington D. Bob agrees with her, on both counts. The following day, Sasha and the rest of the group arrive on foot at Terminus. After easily entering the compound's perimeter, the group eventually comes upon a middle aged woman, Mary, cooking in a courtyard. The woman smiles and introduces herself, telling them she'll get them settled before offering them a plate of food.
In the season finale " A ", Rick, Carl, Michonne and Daryl are ushered into a train car where it is revealed that Sasha and the others are being held by the residents of Terminus. Season 5[ edit ] In the season premiere " No Sanctuary ", Sasha and the others escape Terminus and she is happily reunited with Tyreese. In the episode " Strangers ", she plays a game of "good out of the bad" with Bob.
After a few rounds they kiss. The group find Gabriel Stokes Seth Gilliam who leads them to a church, and later, Sasha volunteers to go on a supply run with Bob in place of her brother. They go to a food bank in which the floor has fallen through but Sasha devises a plan to use the shelves to block them away from the walkers to take them out more easily.
When Bob is dragged under the water by a walker, Sasha rushes to help him. Later in the church, Sasha and Bob are sat together during Abraham's speech. After the speech she leaves to go hold Judith, giving Bob a kiss before he leaves the church.
She confronts Gabriel about it, believing the disappearances of Bob, Daryl and Carol are connected. However, Gabriel is revealed to have nothing to do with it but breaks down in tears, revealing his own sins. After Bob is dumped outside, Sasha rushes to him, enlisting Tara and others to carry him inside. She is shocked to learn that Gareth had followed them and eaten his leg in front of him, but he refuses medicine and reveals the walker bite on his shoulder.
Sasha stays by Bob's side when he is moved into Gabriel's office. She volunteers to go with the others to kill the Terminus survivors.

Tyreese tries to persuade her to stay with Bob for when he wakes up but she insists on going. When they ambush the Terminus survivors, Sasha kills one of them Martin, the one Tyreese claimed that he had killed during the destruction of Terminus by stabbing him repeatedly. When Bob dies Sasha readies her knife to stop him from reanimating, but Tyreese takes the knife from her, to spare her by doing it himself. Sasha is then seen wearing Bob's green military jacket, making a makeshift gravestone from twigs and rope.
Sasha stays at the church to wait for Carol and Daryl, instead of going ahead to Washington with Abraham and his group when they leave. In the episode " Crossed ", Sasha is distraught over Bob's death and wears his military jacket in memory of him.
She accompanies Tyreese, Rick and Daryl, and after much hesitation, accepts Tyreese's consoling to move on and honour him by embracing the good in others. When the group capture two officers as hostages, Bob Lamson whose name piques Sasha's interest speaks to Sasha when the others leave about his killed and reanimated partner, gaining her sympathy.
She offers to put Lamson's partner to rest only to be knocked out by him as he flees. In the mid-season finale " Coda ", Sasha is frustrated with herself over being tricked by Lamson, who has since been killed by Rick after trying to escape and dismisses that she and Tyreese are and can be the same as Bob's death left her naive. Later, Beth is killed during an exchange for the other officers and they leave the hospital.
In the mid-season premiere " What Happened and What's Going On ", after Tyreese is killed Sasha is seen visibly distraught so much so that she can not even pick up a shovel to help bury his body. In the episode " Them ", the group are sixty miles from DC and Sasha continues to grieve for her recent losses. She lashes out at walkers in rage, breaking the group's formation to not use weapons in order to converge energy, leaving the group forced to help her in killing them.
Michonne shows concern and warns her that her rage could get her killed. She kills a pack of wild dogs that threaten the group and they serve as food for the group. Maggie and Sasha bond over their recent deaths alone together as a man suddenly walks up to them and introduces himself as Aaron Ross Marquand.
He asks to talk to Rick, saying he has good news. In the episode " Remember ", Aaron has recruited the group to Alexandria after initial distrust, and Sasha is not given a job yet. The episode " Forget " focuses on Sasha's post-traumatic stress disorder and struggle to adjust to Alexandria's lifestyle. She takes shooting practices outside the walls and later volunteers to keep watch in the guard tower outside Alexandria. Deanna Monroe Tovah Feldshuh agrees on the condition that she can attend her party.
Sasha reluctantly attends and meets Spencer Monroe Austin Nicholswho takes an interest in her. She later lashes out and leaves after being asked what her favorite meal is and hearing other trivial matters, receiving flashes of the recent people who have died. The next day, Deanna asks Sasha what happened and she responds that Alexandria "isn't real", referring to its sense of suburbia but Deanna, while accepting of her trauma, dismisses it and hands her a box of ammunition, leaving her to her new job.
Concerned Michonne and Rosita go out to find her where they find her fighting a pack of walkers and narrowly save her though she yells at Michonne stating that she didn't need to be saved, before breaking down and telling them about what she said to Noah and how guilty it is making her feel. Later she returns to the tower and shoots down a pack of walkers headed for the gates.
In the season finale " Conquer ", Sasha is first seen carting walkers individually into a mass grave alone, outside Alexandria. She then lies in the grave in silence. She is later seen sitting quietly in Alexandria's chapel, when Gabriel walks in.
She asks him if he can help her, to which he replies "No". Gabriel accuses her of killing even when she had no reason to or it wasn't in self-defense, and aggressively throws guilt on her shoulders.
She shouts for him to stop, before the two have a brief fight. Sasha ultimately wins this fight and points her weapon at Gabriel, who is lying on the floor with Sasha keeping him down with her foot. Maggie walks in and defuses this situation, and the three of them are later seen in a circle in the chapel, praying.
Season 6[ edit ] In the season premiere " First Time Again ", Sasha is shown in a flashback walking home as she sees Abraham drunk. He gestures a peace sign which she jokingly returns. The next day Rick addresses the community and reveals the nearby quarry is overrun with walkers kept inside only by a few trucks at the exits, the reason Alexandria has avoided being overrun, which is in danger of collapsing and Rick proposes re-directing the herd onto the main road and away from Alexandria.
Sasha volunteers to help Daryl lure the walkers on the road to stay ahead of them, insisting he can't do it alone. Abraham abruptly volunteers to accompany her. As Rick goes over the plan, Abraham asks Sasha if she is doing such a risky task to die. To his surprise, Sasha smiles, telling him "no".
Sasha and Abraham take their car and travel with Daryl along the main road, but Abraham briefly jumps out of the car and throws himself at the walkers to keep them following which concerns Sasha. However, as they are halfway through their plan, a loud horn goes off, distracting half the herd away.
Tyreese, Julie, and Chris meet up with Rick's group on the highway as winter begins to approach. He quickly becomes an essential asset to the group, providing them with muscle, as well as leadership qualities, which earned Rick's trust in him. The two continued to have a strong relationship, with Tyreese often giving Rick guidance and assisting him with various physical things.
Upon the arrival of MichonneTyreese found himself seduced by her in the gym, and initially attempted to keep it hidden from Carol, unbeknownst to the fact that Carol had witnessed the event happen first-hand. Carol ultimately attempted to commit suicide by slashing her wrists which, soon after, led to a violent altercation between him and Rick.
This event marked the point where their close friendship was severed. Nevertheless, her death drove him deeper into the arms of Michonne. Michonne sadly refers back to Tyreese when confiding in Rick about her loneliness, signifying he had more a lasting emotional impact upon the detached Michonne than she had previously led her fellow survivors to believe.
She briefly tried to have a one night stand with Heath to move on from this but he turned her down, having been told about Tyreese from Glenn earlier and tries to encourage her to face her demons rather than ignore them. Glenn recalled the story of his miraculous survival in the prison gym to several Alexandria citizens at the group's welcome party, all of whom were stunned and in awe upon hearing this.
Season 3[ edit ] Chad L. Coleman pictured in portrayed Tyreese in the TV series In the episode " Made to Suffer ", Tyreese and his group discover the prison and proceed to sneak in, through the exposed back side of one of the buildings. They are no sooner locked in a cell block by Carlwhile Rick and others are away at Woodbury. Donna, having been bit in the woods, succumbs to her infection and dies, and Tyreese takes it upon himself to prevent reanimation by destroying her skull with his hammer.
In the episode " The Suicide King ", while in the process of burying Donna outside, Allen proposes ambushing the group and taking over, however Tyreese refutes the idea, acknowledging that despite the circumstances, they're 'good' people. Once Rick arrives back, his mental instability forces Tyreese and his group to clear out. They stay nearby the prison in the woods and are eventually discovered in the episode " I Ain't a Judas ", by Andrea and Miltonthe latter of whom takes them to Woodbury.

The Governor welcomes them with open arms, once they agree to provide a layout of the prison. In the episode " Prey ", they are shown to have settled into the town, all four of them taking on active roles within the community.
Tyreese and Sasha serve as the community's primary wall-guards. While they are on watch, Andrea reveals to them that the Governor has done terrible things and is planning worse, before she escapes over the wall.
Tyreese is later taken to the Biter Pits to help collect captive walkers, and gets into a fight with Allen. He later asks the Governor why he keeps the walkers, but the Governor assures him that they are used only as a scare tactic. In the episode " Welcome to the Tombs ", Allen is recruited as part of The Governor's army for the war against Rick's group.
The Governor attempts to recruit Tyreese and Sasha as well, however they want no involvement in the bloodshed and opt to stay behind with the children while the rest of the able-bodied go off to fight. Allen, as well as most other Woodbury citizens who went off to fight, are gunned down by The Governor after their raid fails. The lone survivor of the massacre, Karenguides Rick's group to Woodbury, where Tyreese is keeping watch.
He lets them all in, guides them to a room where they find Andrea bitten, and stands vigil outside the door while Andrea shoots herself. Awakened to The Governor's maliciousness and concerned for everyone's well-being, he and Rick agree on moving everyone to the prison. Season 4[ edit ] In the season premiere " 30 Days Without an Accident ", Tyreese is shown to have adapted to life in the prison and begins a romantic relationship with Karen.
He goes with others on a supply run that turns deadly for a young man named Zach; upon returning to the prison he spends the night with Karen. In the episode " Infected ", a mysterious, deadly illness spreads through the prison. After he learns that Karen and David--another survivor--are sick, they are both quarantined by the prison's council. Sometime soon afterward, while attempting to visit her, Tyreese finds that both she and David have been dragged outside, murdered and set afire as a means of disposal.
In the episode " Isolation ", when Rick and Daryl attempt to calm him, he turns violent and begins to attack them. During this, Rick flies into a rage and badly beats Tyreese before Daryl pulls him off.
After recovering, Tyreese finds out his sister Sasha is also sick and goes with Daryl, Michonne and Bob to find medicine. In the episode " Indifference ", they get the supplies and return to the prison to treat the surviving patients. In the mid-season finale " Too Far Gone ", Tyrese discovers a dissected rabbit in the tombs and tells Rick and Daryl he thinks it was the same person who killed Karen, but when they try to tell Tyreese who really killed Karen, they are interrupted as The Governor attacks the prison.
Tyreese takes part in the fight with The Governor's group and he is cornered by two of the Governor's soldiers, but both are killed by Lizzie and Mika Samuels. The children then run towards the prison, with Tyreese following them, telling them to go the other way. In the episode " Inmates ", following the attack on the prison, Tyreese is split into a group with Lizzie, Mika and Judith where they are soon joined by Carolwho doesn't mention anything about her exile from the group by Rick.
They follow a set of train tracks where they discover a sign indicating that a place called Terminus promises sanctuary and community. In the episode " The Grove ", the group takes a break from following the train tracks to Terminus, and find a house in the middle of a pecan grove.
Carol and Tyreese later return from a hunting trip to find that Lizzie had killed Mika and was about to kill Judith, thinking that everyone would understand that Mika was just a changed person after reanimating as a walker.
Viewing Lizzie as too dangerous to be around other people, Carol and Tyreese discuss Lizzie's fate, and Carol is forced to shoot Lizzie in the head. Afterward, Tyreese learns that Carol was responsible for killing both Karen and David.
Tyreese refuses to kill her, saying that he forgives her, but he can't forget what she's done because it has now become a part of who she is.
