Hershel is Team Prison’s oldest and arguably wisest resident. We first met him and his family on their farm in Season 2 after Carl was accidentally shot. A vet by trade, Hershel has a limited but useful knowledge of medicine.

Once the farm was overrun by walkers, Hershel fled with Rick’s crew and his daughters, Beth and Maggie, and they eventually happened upon the prison. Though Hershel was bitten by a walker during an initial inspection of the space, his leg was amputated and he now walks with crutches.

Always practical and wise, Hershel has taken it upon himself to help Rick raise Carl and Judith and shield them from the horrors of the world.

Hershel was killed by The Governor/Philip/Brian (David Morrissey) in Season 4, Episode 8: "Too Far Gone".
