“We have to stay here, it’s too late, you understand me? You stay behind me, and if we get separated, you just run somewhere safe and hide, you hear me? You go someplace safe and hide, and I will find you when this is all over. I will find you.”
Alisha, Season 4 Episode 8 “Too Far Gone”
Alisha was an Army Reservist who was part of Caesar Martinez’s camp of survivors. She formed a romantic relationship with fellow survivor Tara Chambler. Following Martinez’s death, she attends the meeting to discuss leadership. When Brian convinces the Chamblers to leave the camp due to its lack of safety, she comes with them; however, they end up returning to the camp after encountering a group of walkers stuck in the mud.
One day, while in the camp and smoking a cigarette, Alisha watches as her girlfriend plays with Meghan, the latter’s niece, in a game of tag. A lone walker nearly kills Meghan, forcing Tara to try to rescue her. Alisha comforts her distressed girlfriend afterwards. When the Governor tries to convince the group to attack and take over the prison, both Alisha and Tara are present; she seems to agree with the plan.
During the attack, she and a mother guard take the hostages, Hershel Greene and Michonne, out of a vehicle. She stands in front with the Governor’s militia while negotiations occur. When the shooting starts after Hershel’s execution, she starts firing back and hits Rick’s leg. She finds Tara hiding behind a car, who tells her they shouldn’t be doing what they’re doing. Alisha disagrees. She tells her to run into the woods should they be separated. Alisha is later seen entering the prison grounds, shooting at Tyreese (who hides behind potted plants). The man next to her is shot and she turns around to see Lizzie Samuels aiming a gun at her. She’s shot by Lizzie in the forehead. Alisha is left as a corpse in the aftermath of the fallen prison.
