~ William Carver to Clementine (determined).
Killing one in order to save many is part of survival. It's one of the tough decisions that a weaker person couldn't make. It's why it falls to people like us to lead them to safety. Do you understand? Well, I wish it was different, I do. But they are weak... and we are strong. That's why it's our responsibility to shepherd the flock... to keep them safe. It's their nature to follow... not to lead.
~ William Carver to Clementine.

William Carver, also more commonly known as simply Carver or Bill, is the main antagonist of Telltale Games' The Walking Dead: Season Two, as well as a posthumous antagonist in The Walking Dead: A New Frontier and The Walking Dead: The Final Season. He is the unseen overarching antagonist of episode 1, the main antagonist of episode 2 and episode 3, and the the posthumous overarching antagonist for the rest of the season. He is one of the archenemies of Clementine and Kenny.

He is described as the intelligent and ruthless leader of a community of survivors and is greatly feared by the cabin survivors, all of whom were once a part of his group before leaving to escape him.

He was voiced by Michael Madsen, who also played Victor Vega in Reservoir Dogs, James Alexander in L.A.P.D.: To Protect and to Serve, Toni Cipriani in Grand Theft Auto III, Budd in Kill Bill, Maugrim in The Chronicles of Narnia: the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Michael O'Leary in Call of Duty: Black Ops II, and Grouch Douglas in The Hateful Eight.



With a very obscure backstory, Carver built up a large community during the zombie apocalypse at an abandoned Howe's Hardware, having dozens of people under his command. One of these people was Rebecca, a person whom he apparently had an affair with and got her pregnant. Rebecca later escaped Carver's camp with a small group of other escapees because of Carver´s brutality and he began searching for them.

A House Divided

Carver first appears as a man under the name George, who broke into the cabin the escaped group of survivors resided as. As the only people there were Clementine, a recent joiner, and Sarah (unbeknownst to Carver), he quickly left after inspecting the house.

When the group returns, Clementine reports "George's" visit and they quickly move out. After moving into another house with Kenny, Clementine's old friend, Sarita, and Walter, Carver and his group quickly tracks them down. Ultimately, all members are captured (except Luke, who went missing) and Walter is coldly gunned down by Carver before they are all escorted out back to Howe's Hardware.

In Harm's Way

When they return, Carver locks the group up with the other prisoners and forces them to work to try and earn their way back into his community. He kills a member he sees as weak and brutally beats Kenny after discovering their escape attempt. When Bonnie opens the gate to set them free, Carver holds them all at gunpoint saying he would rather shoot Rebecca then let them leave again.

Clementine drops down on Carver allowing Kenny and Luke to disarm him while the group debates what to do with him. Kenny shoots him in the legs and grabs a crowbar in preparation to beat him to death. Everyone except Rebecca and possibly Clementine leave so they don't have to watch. Kenny bashes his face in, killing him and completely obliterating his face. After he is dead, Rebecca take his gun of him and they all leave to join the others.

Thicker than Water

Carver deserved what was coming to him of course, but that's just... brutal.
~ Jane's opinion on how Kenny brutally beat Carver to death.

Carver can be mentioned by Kenny, that what he did to him was for Clementine. Or if Jane were saved by Clem in episode 5, Carver's corpse can be seen in a pile a bodies.


That's funny coming from you. How's that eye? Just follow my voice. It'll get you there. You got a thick f-cking skull Kenneth. Should've put you out of your misery right then, now look at you. You're a mess. The f-ck are you looking at bitch? Don't act like you didn't love every second of it.
~ Carver showing his psychopathy by taunting Kenny into beating him to death with his crowbar; his last words.

It has been hinted by characters like Bonnie and Jane before the events of the second season that Carver was once a kind, caring, lenient, empathetic and charming leader, but due to unknown reasons Carver lost his effective empathy and became the psychopathic madman he is in season two. Carver was shown to be very intelligent, knowledgeable, acquainted, cognizant, mindful and aware of his surroundings by easily figuring out that Clementine was allied with the cabin group that he was hunting down.

Carver is incredibly sadistic, cruel, odious, and short-tempered and shows little to no remorse for the people he killed or hurt since he viewed them as "weak" or traitors that needed to be punished for their crimes against his community. At the same time, Carver and his subordinates are completely delusional and pretentious of the fact that they are evil people, they kill innocent people that are deemed weak or a threat by Carver, imprison those they try to leave or don't follow Carver's rules, and abuse and attack people when they make a mistake or talk out of term. Carver even struck Clementine across the face and forced Carlos to hit his own daughter and murdered Reggie without remorse. As well as that, Carver slowly becomes more and more arrogant and aggressive, culminating in him in tauntingly goading Kenny while the latter beating him to death with the crowbar.

Carver had a deep obsession for his unborn child (Alvin Jr.), even though the child is more than likely not his. Carver wanted his child to be raised to be strong and ruthless just like himself, so once Carver dies his child can take over his community, carrying on his legacy.


  • Roman - Shot in the head (assumed)
  • Pete - Shot in the head (determined, assumed)
  • Walter - Shot in the head.
  • Alvin - Shot in the head. (determined)
  • Reggie - Pushed off a roof.
  • Numerous walkers and people



  • William Carver is similar to Crawford Oberson. They both rule over their communities with an iron fist and are both drunk on power and status. However, while Carver created a stable community and had plans to ensure his future and legacy, Crawford just crumbled his city into itself by exiling the children and killing useful people for the mere suspicion they are sick.
  • It is quite possible his affair with Rebecca was rape through blackmail or force. Supporting this is Carver's line "Don't act like you didn't love every second of it" to Rebecca.
    • His involvement in Alvin Jr.'s birth, from abusing the young AJ's birth parents to his attempt to corrupt Clementine, who later became AJ's de-facto mother, marks him as the Posthumous bigger bad of the second half of the series.
