Maggie GreenePlayed by Lauren Cohan
An expert equestrian, Maggie proves her mettle following Carl’s shooting when she rides after Lori to relate what’s happened. She also uses the horses to make trips into town for supplies. During one such run, Glenn tags along and she propositions him for sex — though afterwards she tells him it was a “one-time thing.”
Maggie gets along with her father, but is also quick to call him out when she believes he’s wrong. She chastises Hershel for not showing greater charity when it comes to letting Rick’s people stay at the farm, and when he briefly returns to his drinking ways.
Despite Hershel’s disapproval, Maggie pursues her relationship with Glenn and soon develops deep feelings for him. Maggie’s opinionated nature shines through in that relationship as well, when she chafes at Glenn’s willingness to put himself in harm’s way. “You’re a leader,” she tells him, but he lets Rick and the others use him as “walker bait.”
Maggie’s compassion and her deep loyalty to loved ones prove to be her overriding concern. When the farmhouse is attacked and the group is scattered, Glenn soothes her by assuring that Hershel and Beth made it out alive.
“I love you,” Glenn tells Maggie. “I should have said it a long time ago and it’s been true for a long time.”
