    Major Story Arcs

    Once Tyreese runs out of food, he takes Julie and Chris on the road to scavenge. They spend a few miserable weeks trying to survive until they spot Dale's RV headlights one night. They approach and Rick welcomes them into the group. Being teenagers, Julie and Chris do very little besides tag along. Upon reaching Wilthshire Estates, the two share a room with her dad and his new lady-friend Carol.

    Wiltshire Estates

    After their first night, the group begins to look through the houses to find if the housing community is safe. Julie feigns fear to keep her and Chris in the already safe house as babysitters with Andrea, though they ditch the kids to go fool around upstairs as soon as the adults leave. Their fun is very short-lived, however, when zombies attack almost immediately. Rick and Tyreese go to evacuate their group and Tyreese finds the two trying to get it on, Julie’s shirt about off. The trio has to climb out a window and onto the top of the RV to escape. Understandably, they lay low for a while.

    Hershel's Farm

    When the group settles in with Hershel's family, Tyreese finally gets some time to confront Julie and Chris. He doesn't care what they do, they should just think of the consequences. Julie and Chris, however, seem to have some grand plan to spend eternity together; they just need the right time. To get to that "time," Julie and Chris begin shooting practice with the rest of the group. When Julie is chided for taking the practice too lightly, Chris steps up and defends her. Later, Julie and Chris approach Tyreese and explain that Rick never took their guns back. Tyreese tells the two to keep their guns and to be careful with them. They realize their plans will go much easier now with guns. Their plans seem to be straying from just having sex to something a bit deeper.

    The Prison

    When Hershel kicks the group off his farm, Rick leads them through the countryside in Dale's RV. They stumble upon a prison and plan to make it their home. As Rick, Tyreese, and Andrea clear out the main yard, the others do a perimeter sweep and leave Julie and Chris to babysit. Julie tries to calm Chris down when he rants about being left behind again.

    After the prison is cleared out and bunks are assigned, Julie sneaks off with Chris as everyone else falls asleep. The two finally have sex. In the afterglow, Chris asks if Julie is ready. She is. A shot is fired and Tyreese and Rick barge in and find Julie dead and Chris very badly shaken. He explains that they were going to kill each other and be together forever - he just pulled the trigger too fast.
